Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hello, my name is Lori, I have been struggling with my weight ever since I got on the pill in my teens, I never worried or thought about my weight untill my clothes started not fitting, thats when it occured to me that something was wrong, it started with me craving ice cream one summer in which I ate it every day about nearly a half gallon of ice cream a day resulting in gaining about atleast 40 lbs. that summer at about 16 years old, I also noticed that after getting on the pill my mood changed and I felt depression for the first time in my life, up untill that point I was one of the happyest people you could know, nothing changed in my life for me to be depressed, so i'm assuming that the pill messed with the chemicals in my brain somehow which probably had something to do with the start of emotionally eating for me. Since then I had lost the weight once just to gain it back again 2 years later and then some, usually I did not go past 165 lbs., but as the years went on that number went up and up, it got harder and harder to motivate me to stay on a diet, my weight really skyrocketed when I moved to a small town for a summer (yea summers are a killer for me! lol) and they did not have a gym in which I have allways been a member of untill that time, I may not have been losing weight but atleast working out was keeping me staying the same, anyhoo I also was not working and mostly sitting around all day which I ended up gaining about 15 lbs. making me about 180 lbs., well after that it became harder and harder to get back into working out again and just started gaining weight slowly since then, not working out and going out to eat more, ended up leaving me 250 lbs., well after a long road I met up with a pastor that helped me lose about 100 lbs. in which I could be accountable to, but after a year of being on a diet and wanting a break from the whole thing, I wound up gaining all but 10 lbs. back a year later and never got motivated to get back on a schedule, so here I sit trying to get back on the band wagon, dealing with my deamons once again face to face, i'm hoping that this site might be enough to kickstart me once again lol, thanks guys for all your help.
I want to be at a weight so that I can do more outside activities, I want to be an active person, I love hiking, camping, riding bikes, going for walks and working out, just want to move around better and not be limited by my weight.
Right now I am just trying to stay away from high calarie and high fatty foods, especially ice cream and sugar which are my weaknesses, and trying to find a program that is right for me, i'm thinking about going back on my program that caused me to lose 100 lbs. at one time which was what I call the potato diet, which consisted of having fruit in the morning and a potatoe for dinner with butter and salt (no sour cream) the first day, and the second day having fruit in the morning and a potato at dinner along with as much chicken, fish, turkey or steak and vegetables as you could eat for dinner, and if you wanted to snack then you could eat fruit or drink milk for your cheating in which with that diet I never went hungry, I ate a hella lot of fruit and managed to usually lose about 15 lbs. a month, I also only weighed myself every other week, and when my weight slowed down only once a month, it also helped that someone else weighed me and I wasent allowed to look at the scale and he wo
Well I pretty much explained alot about my personal life allready, if you want to know then ask lol.
I have been reading a book that seems to be helping with my inside out healing called The Simple Living Guide by Janet Luhrs, it also has things on diet, eating and nutrition in there, but it's a really good book and encourage anyone to read it, it will help you realize for the first time what got you to be the way you are in every way of your life, its better than therapy lol, I also like the book You On A Diet which helps explain the body and how it works really good, the science behind the weight, check it out.
