I am NEW here and NEW TO POSTING THREADS so if I screw up please don't be harsh to me!
I just joined this website because I want to start a low-cal diet, no more than 800 cal per day, to be done for 8 weeks, and I want people to do it with me so that we can support eachother. Maybe you all read a recent article about a low cal diet, 600-700 cal per day, that gets rid of diabetes when you have dieted that way after 8 weeks. I have Type2 diabetes, but I only have it when I am overweight. When I am normal weight, I don't have it. I am in a depressed rut, and engaged in a vicious cycle of consoling myself with food, gaining weight, delaying doing things like going on a cruise or a trip, etc. I do exercise every day (bike in my neighborhood for 90 minutes/day) so I'm not looking for that kind of motivation. I live in Phoenix, AZ, so I exercise at night when it's not sunny.
Also, I CAN do 600-800/day NO PROBLEM/NO HUNGER - I just get OFF TRACK, BORED, ETC., ETC., ETC., and THAT is why I want forum friends to chat with to get through the day - get back to my normal weight - GET ON WITH MY LIFE. If you feel the same, man or woman (I am going to copy/paste this into the man's forum as well), then let's be buddies on this site, start this diet, get rid of diabetes, and MOVE FORWARD WITH OUR LIVES!!!
WHO'S WITH ME?????
