Hey guys! I have been coming to 3FC for years but I do not post often. I am more of a lurker
This is my old story and my new!
I started WW in September of 2007 at 345 pounds. I made positive changes and lost 110 pounds by August of 2008. I was 235 pounds and had reached a plateau. Up until this time it had been easy for me. I just could not shake the plateau! It was hard for me to hit a plateau around the holiday season because temptations were stronger when I was "stuck" and frustrated. I ended up gaining an amazing 36 pounds back between September 2008 and February or March of 2009. (When I do something, I DO SOMETHING...lol). Anyway, I recommited and since then have been up a few and down a few. I do so well and lose hardly nothing and that leads to a few days of crappy eating in which I gain anything I had lost. I started at a size 28, got down to a size 18, and am currently about a 20
So what now?? I am stopping the insanity today! I have got to figure out what I am doing to hinder further loss. If you want to stop reading now, I completely understand as this is very long winded but I am gonna do brain storm of things below and see what is different.
Things that I am going to do to get my body losing again....
1. Go to the gym at least 4 days a week (possibly hire a trainer for a few sessions to get me going)
2. Limit artificial sweeteners. I have been having about 10 packets of Splenda a day in coffee.
3. Limit coffee to 2 "normal" cups a day with either real sugar or no sugar. My mug is equal to over 3 cups of coffee so I will use a standard one.
4. Spread my points more evenly throughout the day.
There are more things I will try to change but this is a start. I am hoping to try and start posting here daily also.
Good luck to all and let's get this weight off!!
