Default Starting off with success

I started this plan end of November 2006 and by December 2008 I had lost 100#. Unfortunately due to emotional and mind games that I used to have, and the pattern I have to be an emotional eater, I ended up gaining back 70 of those pounds. When I ate by the SB guidelines I felt good and looked good. I remember crying in the dressing room when I got to a size 18. And then how empowering it was to not have to always shop it the "big girls" section. Also having energy. I want that feeling of feeling good in my body again.

I have beat myself up enough about regaining the weight and have struggled with mentally coming to terms with it, but not being happy with who I am, period.
With the help of my Heavenly Father and learning about loving myself, I am now at a place to start this way of eating again. I have tried WW without success and have learned that my body feels better with less of even good carbohydrates and low GI foods.

The other area that I have learned is that I NEED to exercise. This is probably one of my biggest challenges. I am struggling to get started. Being menopausal, 52, arthritis, and pre-diabetic. I have to move on a regular basis.

I have spent this weekend being a couch potato and prepping on the computer as well as in the kitchen. I am ready to start this process again.

I was a bit frustrated with the SB site having errors so that I could not register. No buggy. I know the plan for P1 and there as so much free information online. Praise God for saving me a bit of $ right now.
He is my strength and power, His love and care is what will help me to succeed at getting started again.

This is a process where I have to keep my expectations realistic.
