Getting serious in 2015

I joined spark people a few years ago trying to lose a few pound after my divorce. I was on and off, losing weight from fad diets like the maple syrup fast. I was up and down, and then last year I got a wake up call: I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. My cholesterol levels are over 250 and I have high blood pressure. It's time to stop talking and start doing, or I will die.

Like most people, I eat when I am bored, lonely or anxious - as a substitute for other addictions ...

Like most people, I eat when I am bored, lonely or anxious - as a substitute for other addictions like booze. I know there are others out there and could use your support. But I know I can do this. I just need to find the trigger and turn it off.

SparkPoints: 1,904

Fitness Minutes: 2,023

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight. No strength training, no improvements in flexibility or endurance, just to get the pounds off and lost my muffin top. I also want to get off at least two medications I've had to start in the past year.

My Program:
Low carbs. Exercise at least twice a week. Would be more, but damn my job.

Personal Information:
I live and work in Southern New Jersey and constantly feel the pressure to be and stay thin. My immediate goal is to stop having to shop at stores for the 'larger woman' and to actually be able to control when and what I eat.

Other Information:
Stress eating is real! I am not motivated by weight lost shows, extreme challenges, or Oprah Winfrey documentaries about the obese. Just show me a real person who loses 20-30 lbs without nearly dying and I'll watch for hours!

Hello! Sorry it took a while for me to get back to you, I've had a lot going on. I'm doing ok in some areas (weight loss, amazingly) and not so great in others (personal/emotional garbage). I'm going to catch up on your blogs now and see what's been going on with you. Take care, and thank you for saying hi!

Thanks for checking on me! :) I had someone in town over Mother's Day weekend and then I was super sick. But I'm back now!

How are you doing?
