A new journey

I am a 44 year old mother of three sons. I live in British Columbia, Canada and my husband, sons and four cats (they just seem to keep showing up). I am very short so I have always found it hard to keep weight off. Even when I was 109 pounds (high school) I wore a size 9 and my clothes were tight. My doctor says he will be happy to see me at 120 but I know when I get there he will say to lose more. I am a stay-at-home mom and we will on 5 acres in the country.

For the last few ...

For the last few years I have been under enormous stress which has added about 60 pounds to my already obese figure. I have been taking Wellbutrin for 5 years and it helps a bit. I have major in-law issues that I am sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing about but I need to vent.

On March 19th, 2010, I started taking Meridia to help with weightloss. I am hoping it will help. My doctor will only let me take it for 3 months. I am hoping in that time that I can lose enough weight that I will feel more confident and want to keep the weight off. I have been a binge eater for many years and I read that Meridia may help.

I need LOTS of support and have lots of support to offer. Leave me a message if you would like.

My Goals:
I want to improve my health and have energy to play with my children. I want to lower my cholesterol and blood sugar numbers and feel better about myself.

My Program:
I keep my calorie limit between 1200 and 1500 daily. The problem is that I gain on 1500 and stay the same on 1200. I need to exercise more to rev up my metabolism.

Hi, I saw your blog on my LIL Mommy feed. Dog Poop, yuk! Usually I try to think, "oh, great a chance to burn calories while I clean!" As far as the gum chewing, I can not imagine that much gum is good for anyone, no matter what kind. (dental hygeinist for 25 years) The old chicletts were not sugarfree, unless they changed that, be careful how many calories are in a pack. It drives me crazy with how easy it is to get calories and how hard it is to lose them, URG! Hope you are staying connected to your Spark friends and sticking with your plans to be healthier.
