Starting Over / updated 1/09
Wednesday, January 17, 2007
My story. I have been over weight since childhood. I gradually gained weight slowly through out life until one year when I lost my sister and put 20 pounds on. That sent me to a weight loss program that my health insurance offered. When that program ended, I was advised to join a support group and I found TOPS. I didn't do real well in the beginning but was maintaining instead of gaining. I finally found a plan that worked for me, Suzanne Somers, and lost 60 pounds. One day it just stopped working. I didn't give up on it though because I was afraid of gaining my weight back. Just over a year ago I decided to try something new and started the calorie counting thing. Unfortunately I go off that diet easily and have since put back on 30 pounds and I am very upset with myself and frustrated. My TOPS friends are great and always looking for and sharing new tools. A new member (Cindy) turned me on to sparkpeople. Now I am ready to continue this battle and win!
Update, in 2007 I gained the rest of the weight back that I had loss. I now have diabetes and a rapid beating heart. I feel frustrated and loss now when it comes to losing. It is just a matter of to many calories, and I get that, so why can't I stop? I now can not go low carb because of my diabetes. I am currently trying to find a plan that I can do and be successful on.
I work out on my Wii Fit but I am not consistent. I wish I could do a low carb diet again, but diabetics have to eat some carbs at every meal. I try to make them high fiber.
I am hoping that 2009 will be my year. So far I have lost a little.
