Hello from Arkansas~
Hi there, I haven't been here for ages, kept letting life take me off track with my diet progress, making excuses, and even reaching a point where I convinced myself that I don't need to bother losing weight, it wasn't worth it. Like many others have said, though, I have started feeling crappy, I can't keep up with my boys (9 and 11), and now even a grandbaby thanks to my lovely daughter. My husband deployed the day after Christmas, leaving me to do so much on my own that I hadn't been doing in so long, and I was constantly out of breath trying to keep up...so the day he left, I cleaned out the kitchen and been dieting and exercising ever since.
All this time I have lost a few pounds, but seeing little difference in measurements and it has left me so discouraged. I am strength training a few days a week, and mixing it up with some cardio. Just finished going through rounds of hormone tests at the Dr, to see if there are issues there that might be stalling my weight loss since I had my thyroid partially removed last year.
I was so glad to see this site was still here and hoping maybe I can keep motivated through you all.
