The worst photo of me EVER! My hopefully "before" photo--March, 2014 on vacation in California

My name is Lisa and I am 55 years old; at my highest weight ever. I have spent so much of my time in the past decade ineffectually dieting, and losing 10 just to gain back that 10, and then those 10 would bring their friends......So I am now borderline diabetic, my knees are killing me, I get winded going up 2 flights of stairs, and I figure it is time to use all that information I have gained while NOT losing the weight and this time maybe actually lose it and keep it off.

My Goals:
Hit an all time high weight of 243. I am borderline for Type 2 diabetes. I sat in the doctor's parking lot and cried. That was on April 3, 2014. On April 4, 2014 I started back on Sparkpeople. I have to do it this time!

My Program:
Tracking every bite!
1500 calories or less per day.
110 carbs or less
Walking at least 4 miles with my FITBIT at least 5 days per week, and never less than 3.


Personal Information:
I am from Western Massachusetts where I work as a municipal attorney. I have 2 kids; a son who is 25 and a 27 year old daughter. My son is living with us for a short time while working and saving $$ until he figures out his next move, and my daughter is living in L.A. (too darn far, that is where she is...) Happily married for 29 years to the best guy in the world. And I must mention my wonderful dog, Nelly, who always is ready to walk with me!

You are funny! He's actually my daughter's Daryl... still not sure how I feel about a man in my 14 yr olds bedroom :) Great episode - I'm sure you'll enjoy it :)

I think the key was for me that I gave myself a time limit for my break - I knew and planned to be back on track today. I was probably chronically overtraining for awhile and it kind of caught up with me, so I had to rest. I don't recommend my approach for everyone, but for me, I needed it. I'm also a control freak and stubborn, so that helps reign myself in.

If you can say to yourself that you're taking a few days not to go completely crazy, but to let loose, get some rest and come back to program and know you can do it, it may be a good way to shake off some doldrums.

NOLA is for fun. I'm looking forward to it. Still going to run, be active and get my 5 freggies a day to keep things in check. But I'm certainly having beignets and a sazerac.

I am sure you want more vlogs just to see how far I will go to embarrass myself... and I'm sure it will get worse over time :) Thanks for joining in my fun with me ~ you're the best!

You are correct -- I think I have a 13 y.o. inside me, too, as well as a 5 y.o.! I often feel as though somewhere deep beneath my confident facade, I am still in junior high school and no one realizes that I am not the authoritative and "with-it" adult that shows on the outside. Thanks for commenting!

Sorry for bringing tears to your eyes with my I LOVE YOU blog. I am honoured that you could connect with my emotion though, and that you are ok with my method of communication. It is so healing to me. Thanks again Lindse's fpr all your warmth and support. You are wonderful!
