I've tried numerous times to get my weight down through diet and exercise on my own. The latest attempt last year with a start weight of 174. I got down to 167.3 lbs..and I don't know what happened. I worked out and worked out and nothing and I gave up. Now I've decided to try Alli.
My calorie goals daily are 1800. Of course I'll be eating less fat and more of the good things, fruits, veggies, whole grains.
I'm almost 40. I'm so tired of being called the pretty heavy, (thick) one when people are trying to describe me and my coworkers to get the right one of us. I'm tired of going to dinner parties and being self conscious of my weight, what I put in my mouth when seated next to next to nothing weighted women, I'm tired of not being able to cross my legs because my thighs are so big I can't. I'm tired of seeing this person in the mirror I can't recognize as me. I was not always like this. There was a time I was ok with my body and I just want that back. Believe it or not I think physically I'm in good health. Though overweight I had a very good physical but I want to drop 40 lbs...50lbs would be awesome.
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn!
