The struggle of a hungry hypoglycemic

I've spent a lifetime struggling with my weight, caught between low metabolism and the hunger caused by reactive hypoglycemia.
I was a slightly chubby child, but finally reached a good weight in my early 20s and maintained it for 10 years before having kids. I lost the baby weight the first time, but the second time it didn't come off entirely. In the 9 (!) years since, I've been caught in a hopeless cycle of increasing exercise and increasing weight gain.

I've spent a lifetime struggling with my weight, caught between low metabolism and the hunger caused by reactive hypoglycemia.
I was a slightly chubby child, but finally reached a good weight in my early 20s and maintained it for 10 years before having kids. I lost the baby weight the first time, but the second time it didn't come off entirely. In the 9 (!) years since, I've been caught in a hopeless cycle of increasing exercise and increasing weight gain.
With 34 pounds to lose, I came here for the food diary and for help with the aggravation of hypoglycemia.

I lost 25 lbs, and gradually regained most of it back again thanks to a stressful 2009/2010. Now need to start that journey all over again.

Fitness Minutes: 130,909

My Goals:
Well, I made no real weight-loss progress in 2010. My fitness was in top gear, as always.

Goals for 2012:
145 or less by 2/1
140 or less by 3/1
Gather encouragement from meeting above!



My Program:
I'm already exercising strenuously 6 days a week, strength-training 1.5 days (I'd like to aim for 2-3).
I'm keeping a food diary again, and trying to eliminate sugar.
Also working on that late-night eating problem!

Personal Information:
I love cycling and running, and added elliptical trainer work about 4 years ago when plantar fasciitus halted my running. I'm running again, 4 miles once a week (I'd do more, but my feet still feel it a bit).
My husband and I love movies and TV, often dramas and witty writing.

Other Information:
I miss hiking in the spring/summer on weekends, which got sidelined due to my husband's arthritis and our having kids. I'm waiting for my son (now 10) to get a little older so he can go with me! He'll have the stamina and the interest.

Hey Karen! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I know what you mean about being at the hatin' stage, lol! I've gotten to the point where whenever my clothes start feeling a little snug I straighten right up!!! Oh, and great addition - a strong immune system... you're right - I hardly ever get sick either!! YAY!!!
