Peggy's Goal

Im trying to diet to get my sluggish thyroid moving in the right direction. To just become more active than what I have been. I am 56 years old. Tired of heaving around all this extra weight. Plus I hate the clothes they make for larger women. They make you stand out even more with the huge designs. I know this is going to be a long hard journey for me. Need all the help I can get.

Ps. I'm glad you enjoy my vlog. When you look at the struggles in your life it can bejust a healthy step learning to recognize hurtful, unhealthy, and negative patterns in your life. Try look at it objectively. Don't beat yourself down. Lay it out. This is where things are at. This is what is.. but that does NOT define who YOU are!!!.Then move towards who you desire to be, who you WILL be, and who the precious person that is within you right now. Don't ever give up on believing the incredible value that you have. One day at a time. emoticon

Hey, thanks for the friend ad, I've added you back! :) And thank you for the congrats comments on my transformation pics. I also appreciated your comment on my vlog. Ya, binge eating is a TOUGH one. Before I embarked on my healthly living journey here, I had been trying the Dukan diet and trying (in vain) to stop bingeing. It had become SO horrible. I was exercising like crazy (indoor video) but eating like crazy too-- I remember punching in 2200-3000 calories some days! A "good" day was getting (just) under 2000...and those were rare! I'm sooo thankful to be out of that day in day out insanity cycle. I remember waking up back then and thinking what am I going to eat today--you know you have a problem when...! emoticon A couple things began to break me a way from that unhealthy cycle. I stopped focusing (so much) on controling the binges. I began focusing on doing one healthy (different) thing. I got outside and exercised for x amount of minutes (it started off like 10-15 minute walks) I huffed and puffed and was embarrased but slowly became proud that I pushed myself outside. I really keyed in on being "proud" of whatever healthy choice I made that day and focusing on THAT! The fresh air/sunshine is so helpful for my tendency w/ depression esp in winter. Another thing, I suddenly realized my health was in jeopardy. I was nearly 250lbs. (248). I did NOT want to hit 250. For the first time in my life, I was SCARED to exercise--I thought I might have a heart attack or something! :P But it really shook me to the core and made me realize, I...no one else...but me had to step up to the plate and begin taking charge. And it was going to take a lot of courage to face my fears and just travel into the unknowns. Courage was huge for me. The following months the binge eating didn't automatically disappear, rather it was like a slow tapering out of my life. As I focused on other aspects it began to fade away. When I was focusing on it so much it caused me more anxiety, and hence, more resorting to my "coping mechanism" of binge eating. There Is SO much I have learned in my journey. You will too. You ARE too. Make it YOUR journey. Take it slow, but commit yourself to it--because YOU are valuable, precious and of unmeasureable worth. I'm cheering for you! Stop by anytime you need a boost, have a question or need to vent! emoticon emoticon emoticon
