Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I have a new passion, and a goal, that means more to me than just my waist size. I started to Belly Dance and Zumba. I soon found that I love to Zumba all the time. I want to slim down this year, and become a Zumba instructor. I will be 45 in January, and I don't want my body to give up and die. I want to leave this earth kicking and screaming, and making so much of an impact, I will be used as an example to never give up on dreams.
I still have a night eating problem. I still smoke, and I have a sleeping problem, meaning I hardly ever sleep. BUT, those things I will work on, 1 at a time.
OK...I'm back. I;m at 228 lbs again. You know it;s so easy to gain, and so hard to lose...lol...but with the help of a diet group, I'm going to reach a goal of under 185 by March 2013.
Update. I am down almost 60 lbs. My battle is far from over, but I feel like a new person. We have adopted our grandson, whom is now my son. He has Autism. But after reading about foods, I put him on a dairy free, gluten free diet, and he has turned into a different child. I have learned that I am allergic to ALL grains. I also gave up dairy. I have learned that so much of the food we eat is not what our bodys want or need.
I am excited about life, and living....
My 23 year old daughter thought of the name livingpaperdoll, and it just kind of stuck. I am a 44 overweight woman. I have a wonderful husband, two daughters and a 3 yr old adopted son. I have a grandson. I also am a true animal lover, and have some what of a zoo living in my house to prove it. I used to foster for a local Animal Rescue, when ever time permits, and think that all animals deserve a chance.
I am looking for anyone who is optimistic ( or trying to be),, and fun, to join me on this adventure, of weight loss. I really could use diet buddy. I want to stop my body from growing, and moaning. I want to stop my fat from hurting. Can fat hurt? LOL I want to feel healthy and strong.
I want to battle this YOYO trip that I keep getting on and off of, and WIN!! So here I go......LET'S DO THIS!!
I have gained 50+ pounds in a little over 2 years . I was a walker. But tore my knee up, and am just now getting back to it. My brain seems to sabatoge me every day, every time I put on my shoes..........Struggling from day to day.
Back in Spril of 2009, my doctor told me this weight was going to catch up to me, and shorten my life. I need to lose this weight, or this weight will kill me. I mean I;m as healthy as a 250lb person can be....but it's time....I need help, I am asking for some NAGGING diet buddys....I cheat, I need someone to hold me accountable....are you up for a challenge? I can help you....I can nag real well!!!! LOL
I know it's up to me, but it's hard. you know that, but together, we have twice as much of a chance to succeed.
I want to lose enough weight to not have my body ache anymore...that way I can work....
TO GET MOVING!!
To sky dive
To buy my own Motorcycle.
to run a marathon
to find recipes for people who have allergies
To work in the yard.
get moving, and write down everything I eat.
To eat what's right for my body. To exercise daily
I live in Alabama.
But am from Washington state.
I am married.
I have 2 daughters,1 son and 1 grandson.
Animals are my passion!!
I prefer not to ever talk about religion, and politics. Unless your a voter, and are willing to hear my views, then we both could agree or disagree in an adult manner!! What a cool country we live in!!
