Re-Start

Hi my name is Robin. I had a minor heart attack a little over 2 years ago. I found out I was diabetic about 2 years before that and did nothing about it. After the heart attack I lost almost 100 lbs by trying to eat right and walking. Well this past year I have slowly gained back about 30 of those lbs and I feel my health getting worse. I am in need of a fresh start. I googled for a free diet plan and I found sparkpeople. It seems to be what I'm looking for. I'm hoping to lose about 70 lbs and ...
Hi my name is Robin. I had a minor heart attack a little over 2 years ago. I found out I was diabetic about 2 years before that and did nothing about it. After the heart attack I lost almost 100 lbs by trying to eat right and walking. Well this past year I have slowly gained back about 30 of those lbs and I feel my health getting worse. I am in need of a fresh start. I googled for a free diet plan and I found sparkpeople. It seems to be what I'm looking for. I'm hoping to lose about 70 lbs and just get healthier in general. Along with being diabetic, I of course have high blood pressure. I had most of it under control while I was eating right and being active. I want that back, but I've just seemed to be in a depression and not sure why. I'm hoping joining a structured plan will help. I'll be reading peoples blogs to get motivation and I will try to blog once a day. I hope not only will I get help, but that I will be able to help others. Wish me luck, and good luck to you as well.

Thanks for your great comment on my new motivation blog bout taking a nice vacation. I too went to Vegas a couple years ago and like you, we just stayed at our hotel and gambled. We ventured to a different casino just once on a quest to buy a certain shirt that my grandson wanted, and I about died. I complained so much, poor DH I'm sure was sick of hearing it. We had taken one of the trains that go up and down the Strip, to the other casino, but of course the stations are not always close to where you want to go, so we ended up doing a lot of walking that one day. And...you know how huge those casinos are, just walking from one end to the other, is a lot of walking. So we ended up taking a taxi back to our hotel. WHEW.

DH has told me that he decided then that we couldn't go back to Vegas until I could walk better. Even the airport was hard for me. I had to stop several times on our way through, just to rest. And my joints hurt so badly from all that weight pounding on them with every step.

But now....I look for opportunities to WALK. I WANT to walk! Can you believe it? What a change. I used to avoid doing anything that involved much walking. Just going to the grocery store was a challenge, and I always insisted when DH was along that I had to push the cart. It served as kind of a walker for me and helped support me as I shopped. Now I gladly let him guide the cart as I walk happily alongside.

Sorry to hear of your small weight regain, but glad to hear you are determined to take it off again. I know in the past when I started regaining, I would just say, "SCREW it." (Forgive my language), "I might as well keep eating now." But as you observed, even the weight loss you maintained made a difference in your ability to walk a lot. I know now that 200 lbs. is not as bad as 328 lbs. was. I like myself now at 148, but if I did regain, I would try to remember that it's important not to let myself get to that point of morbid obesity again!
