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.

I love...

Quilting

Crochetting

Any kind of homemade cooking or baking.

Spending time with my son.

That would be great if you guys came down! There is a great park that is like maybe a mile from my place. It has a huge jungle gym for kids and lots of trails that you can see alot of wildlife on. In fact, a few days ago, a deer jumped out 20 feet in front of me. I have also seen a family of ducks with fives goslings. It's always an adventure on those trails, haha!

Thanks for your nice comment on my page! You're right, it does take constant vigilance to stay on track. Even when I'm officially "on track" I have to constantly remind myself of the better choices to make, to drink water, to get up and move, to track, and to check in with Spark. All of those little things make such a difference but are so hard for me to keep doing consistently. It's like I just forget. Crazy.
