Hi! My name is Julie and I have finally decided to try SBD. I have been trying to lose weight since November and have been working out with a trainer faithfully. I started at 289.8 and got down to 260 and am presently back up to 274, which I believe has a lot to do with TOM and huge water retention, but still..
My biggest challenge with eating are the horrible, intense cravings I get in the evening. I can do great with eating all day long. Perfect as a matter of fact. Then I turn into another creature after dinner, no matter how full I am. A good deal of it I'm sure is emotional eating.
I also am pre-diabetic. I'm 38 years old.
I just want to get this weight off..for good. I want to be healthy and feel good.
Although I've been heavy for many years now, something is different now. I really really FEEL the weight. I FEEL heavier, even though I'm not at my heaviest. I think it has to do with my aging and also the toll it must be taking on my internal organs.
So, although I haven't really PLANNED today except I know I have the foods here I need, I know what I can and cannot have, so there's no time like today to start, because I'm sick of tomorrows. I've been living tomorrows for 18 years now.
Please direct me where to go for tips on staying the course on phase 1 and just tell me I can do it!
My trainer isn't going to be happy about no carbs for 2 weeks. He is NOT a SBD fan. However, I don't think he knows anything about it.
Wish me luck!!!
