My name is Laurie Jay. I have had problems with my weight all my life or should I say since I was 18. I just recently came to terms with my inability to use refined sugar. I knew it set off cravings and uncontrollable eating but I did not want to stop. I came to this conclusion because anytime I stopped eating sugar, I felt great and I did not crave food. I eat in a healthy well balanced way.

When I moved to Las Vegas in 2005, I weighed 128 pounds. This was a little too skinny and everyone thought I did not look good. Never did exercise. When I started this time, I was at 236. Never have I weighed this much. I have no control if I eat sugar. I might as well add that I am a recovered alcoholic (12 years in January 2009) and started on sugar after I quit drinking. Hmm, wonder if those two have anything in common. A lot of diabetes, obesity, heart problems and alcoholism on both sides of my family. My mother's family is Aboriginal from Canada. Half of my relatives live on the reserve still. We have all the health issues that go along with it.

I had to learn that I had this entitlement problem and acted like I did not have to give up some types of food in order for my life and health to change. I am here to make exercise a priority in my life and to eat in a healthy matter. The weight stuff will happen but it is not what I am focusing on.

Sorry I didn't start this sooner:

    Hey my exercise buddy!! Yea, it's me and don't get mad at me for ditching you. LOL. I've been doing some soul searching and found myself again. I'm getting stronger and dealing better with my father's death in May. I"m back for good sweetie.

    Not ready to get back into the exercise thang just yet. Gotta get this eating under control first. I'm sure you are doing way better than me. We'll get it together in 2010. Take care friend,
