Can I Break This Cycle?

I have been overweight most of my life. I've overcome having a gorgeous son throughout having kidney disease and ultimately a kidney transplant. Why does that seem easier than losing/keeping weight off?

My Goals:
Keep my body healthy so my new kidney is healthy.

Get down to a healthy weight so I can try to have another baby.

Make this a real lifestyle change, not just a fad.

My Program:
Staying in my recommended nutition levels.

Learning how to add activity to my daily routine.

Personal Information:
I have dealt with weight issues my entire life. I have never been one to think twice about taking care of myself. Then I was diagnosed with FSGS back in 2003. I was blessed to receive a new kidney from a deceased doner in May 2011. And now I feel that this blessing truly gives me a 2nd chance for so many things. It took me a long time to be in the right mindset, but I want to do this the right way not only for myself, but also to show the soul that gave me this blessing that I won't waste the gift given to me.

Other Information:
I love...

Quilting

Crochetting

Any kind of homemade cooking or baking.

Spending time with my son.

Thank you for your kind words! Yes, so much of my life has been trying to lose weight, it's weird to be trying to keep it off. But I am SO GLAD that I'm here actually trying to maintain - most of the time, I never lose all the weight I wanted before returning to my old habits.

I'm just going to take one day at a time and remember that I'm worth my healthy life!

Hey Laura!
I am doing right. LaX is alright but it is no Duluth. I miss Duluth alot and my friends there. I struggle to find people that are like me that like to work out or run or whatnot. Seems like alot of people here are into the drinking scene. Might start to volunteer at one of the hospitals. We will see. How are you these days?
