One More Time

Good Morning! I am a southern girl from Alabama who has been struggling with weight for most of my life. I have lost 120 in a year in my twenties and over fifty pounds numerous time since. Obviously the plan did not work as I am once again facing the need to lose over a hundred pounds again. Finding myself starting this journey again, I bring hope but also a lot of old baggage that "weighs me down."

Good Morning! I am a southern girl from Alabama who has been struggling with weight for most of my life. I have lost 120 in a year in my twenties and over fifty pounds numerous time since. Obviously the plan did not work as I am once again facing the need to lose over a hundred pounds again. Finding myself starting this journey again, I bring hope but also a lot of old baggage that "weighs me down." I carry with me the frustration of success followed by failure as I have gone back to old habits and thus recovered the pounds lost plus more. This time, I want to try to be honest about my feelings....something I think I have never done. I am angry that this has been my lifelong challenge, but honest enough to acknowledge that my love for fried foods (good southern cooking) and chips and salsa have been something to which I am a willing captive. I want to think that these stumbling blocks will be easily overcome this time, but I know that is not the truth. But this time, I am starting forward with a self awareness that I probably will slip and crunch on the skin of great fired chicken and munch chips and salsa with gusto but also, will be able to acknowledge what I have tumbled over, right myself and get back on the steps to my goal. I think my thought is that this is for "One Last Time" and is the start of something good. Thanks for listening.

Oh, do I know about losing and then getting discouraged or lackadaisical. I was leader of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) for three years. Did get to 170, but that did not last that long. My post polio syndrome kicked in about that time and made it impossible to walk or exercise (best excuse I have)
Have a dear cyber friend I met on the internet, and I do believe she is in Huntsville. I do not have a good memory for a lot of things. We call each other occasionally to catch up on what is going on in our lives.
You have a great motive to lose those pounds and I do too. My kids said that if I lose 50-60 lbs by 2013 (May or June) they will take me on a cruise to Alaska. I would love that. It is hard when you live where food is prepared for you and they are always trying to get you to eat their yummy desserts. (I live in an assisted care facility.) Losing the weight will greatly halp me get out of my power chair and the bed,
We both have goals, now let's meet them!! Your new friend, Betty.... emoticon
