I recently hit what I think (HOPE) is my rock bottom. My weight has been steadily increasing forever. I thought I had it somewhat under control, but after quitting JC prior to the summer I continued to gain. One day I stepped on the scale and the most upsetting thing happened. The scale registered at over 300 pounds. I stepped off and laughed. I laughed to cover the tears. I weigh 300 pounds. And I can see it in pictures. I can feel it in my clothes and in the difficulty I have carrying myself around. I am ashamed. But I'm also at a point where I call it as I see it. I'M FAT. I AM AN OBESE WOMAN. And if I don't do something I am going to have health and physical problems as I get older. My father is on a walker in his early 60's in a large part due to the damage his weight did to his body. I do not want that to be me. I need to figure this out. I don't know how to figure this out. What can't my brain wrap around the fact that I AM FAT AND IT IS MY OWN FAULT. I don't know where to start as far as fixing this issue. Diet and exercise. YES! It doesn't work. I doubt myself. I don't know enough. I think this 'one last bite' won't matter. What has to happen for me to fix this? I was considering gastric bypass but my insurance won't cover it. Short of hiring a personal chef/dietician I don't know what to do. I am overwhelmed. I am scared. I don't know what to do. I cannot see that scale continue to go up. I can't live like this anymore.
One thing that scares me the most is going back for another term at college because I can never focus on losing weight when I'm trying to pass that final! However, being a college student means being in a mass amount of debt, so I really have no more money to buy extra snacks with the food portion of my budget all spent on Jenny Craig. I hope this time my academic life will actually work IN FAVOUR to me for ONCE!
Hey everyone. Here I’d like to share my short story o weight loss. After two pregnance I gained around 30 pounds and I was really shoked when I checked my weight. From size S I have come to L. So I was quite upset as I didn’t feel comfortable in my own body. I worked full time and I gave all my free time to my kids so I practically didin’t have time to care about myself. I desired to change my style of life and reconsider what I eat and do. So I started with food. Relying on my past experience I decided not to try any diet but just eat less. I have set a plan or myself where I ate 5 times a day – breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner. Mostly I ate vegetables fresh or fried but in its own juice not oil with chicken or fish. Salmon was perfect and still its one of my favorite meals. For dessert I used to have berries or fruits with yogurt. As a snack I took nuts, banana, muesli bar or toast with cheese. The next thing was to push myself every morning to wake up 30 mins earlier to do exercises which I have found in the internet. I also joined gym and dance classes at the weekend. As I wanted to improve my result with loosing weight I was searching for more ideas. One of them was buying Duromine but it haven’t convinced me at all. I read stories of people who used pills like those and became addicted. So I sticked to my plan – diet plus exercises and I was absolutely happy. Eventually after 3 months I’ve lost 24 pounds. I am proud that I did that without any external help like solutions4weightloss or surgery. I hope that people who read my post will believe in their power and definitely will reach their aim in weight loss.
Alrighty Before I start I just want to say thank you to KatTastic for commenting on my first entry. I acutally did break down and bought a bigger size not to long ago, as much as it hurt. Your are most definietly right its going to feel so good not to be able to wear them! Good luck to you and your weightloss success! Now, where was I? Oh yes, cravings! This is week 2 on my Jenny life style and I am finding that I want my old food. I've cheated....twice...gasp I know! I feel so bad about it. But I think I've figured out why. I have a very hectic schedule. Now I know, most of you don't know what thats like (sarcasm anyone?) but I do. I'm working 3rd shift one day, than 1st shift and the next 2nd, I mean its really hard to know when to eat. My consultant says that's my challenge this week, to eat every 3 hours. BUT example 1: I was up all day today and ate my jenny meals. Now I went to bed at 7pm and got up at 9:45 to go into work at 10:30pm. I have to stay up all night tonight and sleep all day tomorrow because I work 3rd and so...do I eat tonight? Do I snack? AHH Has anyone ran into this problem? Its highly frustrating. Also, I get really, really hungry. Like I"m going to literally be sick if I don't eat, which, cough, lead to some cheating, but its usually around dinner time. Has this happened to anyone else. I'm also a bit worried because I might be expecting and if I am I don't want to harm the baby by not eating as many calories. But thats a story for another time. I was just wanting to know if anyone has cravings on here and how do you all deal with them. I like blogging about it because it helps me vent. I need venting, so I don't go into my kitchen and eat all the left overs from the past week. Thats right I'm an emotional eater here. Does it get easier after the 2nd week? My first week went well, only lost 2 lbs though, which was a bit of a let down. BUT ITS 2LBS LIGHTER! I'm needing some pep I guess. I hope everyone is having a better start to their week than me. This post is short and sweet tonight. I need to do some mindless things on the internet, like facebook or tumblr. Have a great rest of the week lovelys! I again am sorry for the bad spelling and poor grammer!
