68 Pounds in 8 Months...Can I Do It?

My name is Katie and I'm currently 24 years old. Facing a BMI of 40 (yikes!) I have had enough of being disgusted by my body. A friend told me about SparkPeople awhile ago and I decided to see what it was about.

My goal is to get down to 160 pounds by Christmas. 160 is not my ultimate goal as that's still overweight for my small stature, but I want to utterly SHOCK my family when I see them on Christmas this year! No more of me worrying that they're thinking, "She's getting ...

My biggest struggle with weight loss is food. Particularly dinner. This is because dinner is with my family, the rest of my meals and snacks are by myself so I'm not so tempted by what's been prepared. Not so for dinner...I smell the food and utterly cannot resist diving in. No thought or goal can seem to stop me. I would have bariatric surgery but I am uninsured and I have zero money to invest in a surgery, even one that may save my life. So here I am, trying to get away from being borderline diabetic and obese.

Thanks for the friend add, and I've added you as well! emoticon emoticon

I'm glad my comments helped you out a bit. I think that we all have to be reminded sometimes that we are the only ones analyzing and obsessing over our bodies!

You can lose the weight! I've lost 20 in a month just by exercising and drinking water and diet drinks only. Lowering the calories really helps. Welcome to Spark its a great site with lots of great people. emoticon
