For the last few years, too much time on the road eating fast food, my sedentary lifestyle, depression, medications, and general aversion to exercise have lead me to gain well over 100 lbs. in the last 10 years. I've tried several different things to lose the weight, but it always comes back.
Now that the depression is mostly under control, I'm ready to get going again. After talking to my doctor, South Beach was decided upon. I had followed the diet for awhile a few years ago, and did pretty well on it. Then my personal demons made their presence known and it all went by the wayside. But I'm back.
In one week, I've lost 8 lbs. It's not a lot, but it's a beginning.
So here I am.
