Thank you so much for the awesome comment you made on my blog!! You are so right we have to balancing pushing ourselves with punishing ourselves. We have to balance being proud of our accomplishments with being humble. My favorite bible verse is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" -Philippians 4:13

I loved your post on CARLENLLOYD's page about coming out on date night in a skin tight black mini dress and seeing your husband's reaction! That is great and I pray that you can do that soon! And welcome to sparkpeople! 1444 days ago
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I take thyroid medicine, that has not made a difference one way or the other, I am just not as cold anymore.
I was born with polyps on my intestines, prior to those being removed when I was 7, I was way underweight and could not gain weight at all. After my surgery, it was great, I could eat and not throw up and by age 10-11, I was quite plump. Being raised by a very thin twiggy mother made her fixate on my weight and I literally have been on diets since age 11, that is nearly 38 years. I was at a good weight from 8th grade until high school though I thought I was fat but I weighed less than 120 then. I weighed 150 when I got married the first time and then hovered at 170 for years gaining and losing the same 25 lbs and now these last 10 years I have hovered at 200-220 no matter what I do - the losest I have seen in that time was 190 for about a week and that was with 5 months of exercising 3-4 hours a day and keeping calories below 1200. My husband stops eating dessert and goes to one helping and he drops 15 lbs in a month, I do that and I might lose 2 lbs in that same month but if I hadn't "dieted" I wouldn't have gained anything either and the moment I stop the next day those 2 hard fought pounds will be back. AHHHH.
The fruit worked and I may do that again during Lent but I have 2 trips during that time so I will probably just do it from home. I am very tempted to try a week or so of fasting if I can but I fear screwing my metabolism even more than it is. Doesn't really matter what his does as we have different relationships with food. 1444 days ago
