Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
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????
