Just want to introduce myself before jumping in on the 47 thread.
Iíve always struggled with my weight, sometimes successfully, sometimes not so much. My low was 137 (for like a week a decade ago) and my high is today (202). For many years I hung in around 165 and was always able to lose a quick 10 pounds for a special event. Things have changed in the last 18 monthsÖ..
My dad died after a long illness then, and my weight crept up to 175. I struggled to get it back down but with little success. Then last September, I moved in with my mom in a different state to help her out and switched jobs. Quit smoking (!). Hit Peri menopause, which stinks by the way
! 27 pounds later, here I am.
I am having a hard time working up the effort to eat less. My problem lately is portion size. And I am an emotional eater. I am also fairly lonely
here in this new town but have lately been reaching out. I know being around more people will have me caring again.
I have not put forth a real weight loss plan in a couples of years. Iíve been operating on the ďNo food is badĒ plan. And while thatís true for many, not so true for me. I need to eat like a human again! And cut out the big lunches and desserts!
My goal is 35 pounds lost by Christmas (and a cruise!
) Thatís 1.5 a week and I donít think thatís too much to ask of myself
Love you all
