I've been lurking for a few days now and figured I might as well come out of hiding! I've been reading and reading and trying to get up the motivation to start this and today is finally the day.
This is my THIRD go around with SB and I'm excited to be back. The first time I was on it, I was on fire and working out, eating right and lost 17 pounds. But I failed to realize that the headaches and achiness were a result of the "detox" from sugar my body was going through. So I got frustrated at how crummy I was feeling, despite the weightloss, and fell off the wagon.
I tried again since I had been so successful on it but as is bound to happen, LIFE happened and stress took over my eating habits once again.
So here I am once again. I have been trying to do WW but I realize that I have so much more success on SB so I'm going to give it another go around! I even have my DH on board and perhaps even my Mom.
I have a LOT to lose and just don't want to give up and listen to what everyone else says that anyone at my weight should just be working towards surgical intervention. When I did SB last time I weighed 320. Now, one baby and not losing the baby fat later, I am 375. That means I have a solid 200+ to lose BUT my doctor recommended SBD AGAIN so here I am.
I intend to be a regular here so get used to me!
Ohhh before this gets any longer, I'll give a little brief intro about me and then I'm done. I am a work-at-home mom of two. I do transcription from home (doesn't help the big booty factor, I tell ya!
My children are 3 1/2 and 20 months. I also take care of my 1-year-old nephew during the day. Hubby works graveyard so we have opposite schedules. Makes things interesting. I am 29 and live in Oregon and have lived here for almost five years now.
That's it for me. I can't wait to get to know you all!!!! If you made it through my lengthy post, you deserve a prize! Lol
