I’m hoping this diet can get me back on track and help me finish an amazing journey I started about three years ago. I was morbidly obese from age 18 to age 43. Three years ago I discovered the JOY of fitness and changed my eating habits as well and lost 120 pounds. Life was AMAZING! I changed myself from the inside out and the outside in!
I had bodylift surgery about a year ago, and it was expensive and traumatic and TOTALLY WORTH IT because my two-decade obesity had disfigured me. The weightless was great but not enough. Now I look and feel and move like a normal person. It’s SO FABULOUS!
Alas, however, my happy ending has not been reached quite yet. I’ve gained back about 20 this year! And no matter what I do I can’t seem to get the needle moving in the right direction for long. I SLOWLY lose and then have a binge and nine days of hard work are erased by one. I’ve tried everything–EVERYTHING, but I can’t seem to get back into the easy losing groove the change my life.
I now have about 40 pounds to lose to hit my long-time “ideal” goal of 140–but honestly even if I could just lose the 20 I gained this year and call it a day, I’d be thrilled!
Part of my problem is INFORMATION OVERLOAD. I’ve tried everything, but I’ve read about EVEN MORE! And all of it is contradictory!
So I made a promise to myself that I would STICK WITH THIS FOR 28 days, COME HELL OR HIGH WATER! I’m here on this blog to keep myself accountable.
Thanks for reading! I’ll check in soon and often!
