Ok folks, here it is. I started my diet 1/1/2010 & I need all the support I can get! Maybe this can be a place, if there are enough of us involved, that we can come for some motivation & to talk about our highs & our lows.
So I guess I'll start.
I have had a weight problem my entire life. In 2006 I actually lost almost 100 pounds. I didn't do it the right way & it didn't happened under the best of circumstances. I actually lost probably 20 pounds more than I needed to & it all came off WAY too fast. I had some big tragedies in 2007 & as usual I resorted to food for comfort & now here I am again having gained the bulk of it back. I have more aches & pains than I've ever had & I seriously worry about things like diabetes. But I'm finally feeling motivated to make a change!
The last three visits to WDW have not been good physically for me. The first two were due to health problems & the last was simply because I was fat & in the worst shape of my life. I have a WDW vacation coming up in July & I want to go feeling good & able to move. I need to lose about 50 pounds. My husband is doing this with me. So I do have some support at home.
Anyway, that's my tale. So far I have lost 12 pounds in 3 weeks. I'll take that! I hadn't exericised any until today. I did 25 minutes on the treadmill. Ok, granted, not much but a start! And I didn't come off feeling like i needed to call 911! lol
I am trying not to think of this as a temporary thing but a permenant one in which I change my lifestyle. And I am really hoping & praying that I can succeed.
Thanks for listening :)
