Healthy and Fit in 2011

I am 39 and would like to be under 200 lbs before I turn 40 this year! I have been over 200 lbs for almost 20 years (gaining most of my weight in college and depression after gaining weight). I am an optimistic person and know I can do this, but I have a husband that doesn't realize how much he sabotages my weight loss. He wants me to be skinner, but then he will make dinner consisting of hamburgers and fries (deep fried). I explain what I need and he keeps saying he will do better, but ...

He wants me to be skinner, but then he will make dinner consisting of hamburgers and fries (deep fried). I explain what I need and he keeps saying he will do better, but ultimately fails time after time. I love him but he has never been over weight his entire life and says being called a bean pole is the same as being over weight (rolling eyes). So, I am focused, determined and have been trying different tactics keep myself motivated!

Hi Dana, I've noticed that you've been quiet lately on spark and was hoping you're doing ok. thanks for sticking around me through my wine binge and stuff. I really appreciate you checking on me. I have some good things going on now so here's a quick update.

I applied for a cashier position at a local retail store, like walmart without the refrigerated section, just a little smaller. I've had enough with the food and beverage industry. My last job with food was managing a small cafe in napa, ca called Andie's Cafe'. Got an interview appt on the spot when I turned in the application. I was thrilled b/c the people who work there are all so friendly and the manager is super nice and funny.

I got an appt for bloodwork tomorrow to have my iron checked along with my hypo thyroid levels so that I can get on another source of medication. I hurt all over and have just been in a fog lately. I meet with the urologist next wed for a consultation to address the "worrisome" results from my ct scan. we'll see what kind of tests I have to do then.

We're on a flash flood warning here, so I'm preparing extra water bottles and washing more laundry in case we end up having contaminated water. I'll catch up here on spark tomorrow morning.

xo,
maureen
