Popping a Balloon

Two years ago, I lost 35 pounds going from 201 to 165. Then I met a guy. A fantastic wonderful, amazing guy. And I got Fat and Happy. He is one of those people who can eat the whole store and never gain an ounce- you know the super skinny "I've always been a 31 inch waist all my adult life even though I'm 35". Sadly, being around a man who can eat one of everything and clean his plate, has lead to ME eating one of everything, cleaning my plate, and skipping my required salads. Today, I ...
Two years ago, I lost 35 pounds going from 201 to 165. Then I met a guy. A fantastic wonderful, amazing guy. And I got Fat and Happy. He is one of those people who can eat the whole store and never gain an ounce- you know the super skinny "I've always been a 31 inch waist all my adult life even though I'm 35". Sadly, being around a man who can eat one of everything and clean his plate, has lead to ME eating one of everything, cleaning my plate, and skipping my required salads. Today, I was feeling good. Skinny. My pants were looser. Thought I would step on the scale. I knew I had gained some of my weight back. I didn't know I had gained it all back PLUS 11 pounds!
I have kids, correction, WE have kids. We have my two and his one, and they are HYPER. I struggle with Anxiety and Depression. And for the first time ever, I didn't get a bill of clean health at my annual physical. I experience symptoms similar to arthritis. I hurt. Every day, I hurt. The worst of it is that I KNOW in my head that loosing weight and being healthier will fix ALL of those problems. I might get anxious, but not as bad. I might get depressed, but not as deep. I might hurt, but not as often. And yet, I can't seem to pull myself up and just do it. I keep finding excuses. I need help eliminating those!
To make matters worse, I now drive an hour and fifteen minutes one way to work everyday and have moved into the country where I don't really know anyone, and there are really few people to meet. I work in a new town where I don't know anyone, and live in a new country where the only people I know are my 60 year old neighbors.
So, I need help. I honestly just need some good people around me to help and encourage me. I can lose 50 pounds by the end of the year- right????

You are so lucky that you can grow some of your own stuff. My boyfriend and I would love to do that but sadly since we live in an apartment we can't. As for trying to "hide" veggies in different foods, well, we already do that in some ways. I can eat spinach in certain recipes but there can't be too much of it in there or I won't eat it. I can eat carrots but they have to be in a soup or stew and as for mashed potatoes.....forget them, we use cauliflower mash instead. Our local market just had a sale on produce so we got some different fruits for me to re-visit and see if I liked them. I'm glad to say that now I can eat more than just apples, bananas and pineapple. I like peaches again and black cherries too.....as for the blueberries, it's still a bit of a struggle to eat them but I can force myself to do so. I'm being more active and making sure to watch what I eat. Although sometimes I don't always remember to log it online (OOPS LOL). I've really kicked up my efforts the past two weeks. I weigh in on Tuesday so hopefully I'll see a change in the scale. I hope all is going good with your "diet" and that you are seeing the results you seek. emoticon

I'd love to make a friend on here to help me with my weight loss journey and in turn be able to help them if I can. I just quit smoking 30 days ago and haven't gained weight from that endeavor which is a plus. As for the twizzlers on your end - sometimes you just have to enjoy a "bad" snack LOL. As long as you know you can't reach for that kind of thing all the time then you're okay. I would love to be able to have a big 'ol salad as a meal but unfortunately I can't eat any sort of leafy green. I have a very bad aversion to the likes and I've tried multiple times to overcome it. I don't like the taste or texture of greens at all. Come to think about it, I'm a very picky eater when it comes to any type of fruit or vegetable. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond to my blog. Congrats on wanting to be a healthier you and best of luck reaching your goals. Have a great day!
