Hi. I've lurked at this site a few times over the years but never joined. I see so many inspiring stories that it gives me a inkling of hope that maybe I can do it too. I need to lose well over 100 lbs. Which just the thought of is overwhelming. I know you should look it as a little goals but I still KNOW what it is, ya know? I have some health issues that have contributed to my problem and make it harder to lose (hypothyroid/sleep apnea). I am well treated for both, but it's still an issue. I need to get my insulin resistance in check I think. My fasting blood sugar is still in the normal, but I know I have blood sugar issues. Okay, sorry for all that background...
I was wondering if anyone had any advice for keeping your eating under control when you sit at a desk all day long for work and you are NOT busy. To the point where you feel like eating is all there is... No, unfortunately, getting a new job isn't a possibility right now. And I've tried to ask for work, but there just isn't. And extra things I do get, don't really take up that much time. It's very frustrating.
I bought a bike and have been biking with my DH several times a week and I love it and I've joined a program at my farm, where I get a box of produce of whatever is growing locally that week, so my meals and snacks have been overhauled by that. Who has time to eat fast food when there is so much produce to go through? Unfortunately, I haven't been losing anything. I've just gained weight. UGH! I also have very bad swelling everyday (5-10+ lbs a day), so I never know my real weight.
I am just getting to that point where I need it off. I hate it! I want something else. I've done WW a few years ago but I gained it all back. I've done low gi, which really makes me lose the best, I just tend to slip off easily.
Anyway, sorry to drag on. I'm really hoping that I can find other people to talk to here who are going through the same thing and who have done it and won.
