My Weight Loss Journey

Hi, I'm Beth, 42 years old, tired of being unhealthy and overweight, need all the motivation I can get because typically will do good for a week and then say, "oh forget it, just eat what you want". I am tired of food being the drug that I turn to when I am happy, sad, excited, hurt, lonely, bored, etc. Also, I am in the process of losing 10% of my weight so I can get the lap band procedure. Hopefully, I will meet this goal by the end of July, 2011 or early August. Well, I made it. My insurance company made me lose 43 lbs. before they would approve it but I finally did it. My surgery date is set for October 31, 2011.

Personal Information:
Beth
42 years old
love painting, cake decorating, quilting, reading and watching reality tv. I have a lot of friends, but my weight is holding me back. I have gotten to the point where I don't want to go anywhere because I am ashamed of where I am with my weight and lack of self control.

Other Information:
I want to feel confident again. I have always been outgoing and know I just want to stay home and do nothing. Any advice from any sparkies will be greatly appreciated.

One more week and your set..Enjoy your week. I want to share something that I read: here it is: You are not a dog. Don't reward yourself. I think the words food should be the last work of that statement. I am so happy and excited for you and your choice to go on this journey. I will be happy to answer any questions you have as will my lapband sisters.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
