Been a while. I'm so glad to see you all are keeping the home fires burning for me. I haven't been doing WW, but I have been counting calories. I think I needed a break from points. Right now, calorie counting seems to fresh and new to me. It just seems easier for some reason. Like I said, maybe I needed something different.
I started trying to post on other 3FC boards, but none of them feel right. So I'm back again -- I hope, this time, to stay.
Sunday will be my first weigh-in on the new plan: 1600 calories a day, no more than 200 grams of carbs and trying to keep the fat down below 30 percent. It's tough, but it's getting easier.
The reason I've come back so diligently happened last week. I was about to be discharged from a short hospital stay and found myself alone in the room with my "chart." I must have been seen by about 25 doctors, so there was a report from each of them. As I flipped through the pages, I saw one word over and over and over again: obese. That's not who I am, I wanted to scream.
So, here I am. Can I come back and play? How is everyone? I can't wait to earn my first Slimmin' Sistas Dancing Nanner!
