I wanted to post a new thread since no one else has since the recovery.
I feel like I bounce around here now and then but I find it hard to completely make the life changes necessary to losing weight. Well, I think I've reached the point where I can no longer pretend I don't need to do this. The past two weeks have been pure **** for me because I've had a migraine headache. I've missed work and missed fun, social engagements because I was sick. My options are to go back on a medicine that has horrible side effects or completely cut processed foods from my diet.
So I'm getting serious now. I can't continue to live in pain and I need to lose weight. No more processed foods- only fruits, veggies, meat, and homemade bread/pasta. And I'm going to start walking and swimming again.
Really just posting this just to affirm my commitment to this process.

First 30lbs lost in 2006-2007 and maintained until Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis in April of 2011. Losing to live now!

I will find my way if I can be strong.

When I go the distance I'll be right where I belong"
