hey yall! so I have posted on 3fc before, but I fell off the wagon 2 times, and I sort of stopped. Well the other night I was sitting in bed when my fingers turned numb and my heart started racing. I took a warm bath and the next morning I was fine, but I realized it probably had to do with my weight, and it truly scared me. I never had a real wake up call..I mean, I had moments where I didnt fit on a seat, on a roller coaster, etc..but I got over them, and continued to make excuses for myself and slowly go back in my destructive eating habits. Those were surface issues, size issues..this became a health issue..I do NOT want my life cut short because I cant turn down mac n cheese and brownies..thats like a slap in the face to God, who created me, (and NOT the obese girl on the outside)..so anyways, The very next day (sunday) I went to WW, and I started officially yesterday. Its not too bad right now, I have LOTS of points per day because of my weight..I get 41 a day!! I know that will go down, but for now Im okay! I feel like WW will be easier than calorie counting and give me more flexibility in eating out etc..
I know some days I will go over points, I will be dissappointed, I will have gains and losses, but I want to introduce myself to all of you wonderful people, and I hope to get to know you all and see how far we can go on this journey together! I also want to warn you about the complaining, hungry rants, and times where I need to be talked out of some dominos pizza..
It sounds like your head is in the right place to make this the right time to make a lasting lifestyle change, lose the weight and get healthy!
We are in similar circumstances - I am a 'repeat offender' as well, and my high weight (which I don't note on my tracker since it was not this time round) was 351. For some reason this time on WW I am sticking with it (I started at the end of May) and am determined to find the fit, normal-sized woman hiding under all this weight.
I see we also both live in Georgia.
We CAN do this!
