I now know my goal is obtainable

I was obese between 5 and 35 before I found exercise. Between 35 & 40 I found martial arts and jogging. I already knew how to eat properly with yoyo dieting in the early years. At 40 I had several physical problems: cancer, extreme fibromyalgia and 2 knees without cartilage. I was not able to exercise and balloned up to 300 pds (on a 5'2" frame) and was barely walking with a cane. I decided I wanted to have gastric bypass. My husband suggested we try one more time. I went on 1200 calories. ...
I was obese between 5 and 35 before I found exercise. Between 35 & 40 I found martial arts and jogging. I already knew how to eat properly with yoyo dieting in the early years. At 40 I had several physical problems: cancer, extreme fibromyalgia and 2 knees without cartilage. I was not able to exercise and balloned up to 300 pds (on a 5'2" frame) and was barely walking with a cane. I decided I wanted to have gastric bypass. My husband suggested we try one more time. I went on 1200 calories. After losing 60 pounds I leveled out. Started walking daily at lunch with cane and my walking jumpstarted my weight loss. I went down to 210. With a new medicine for Fibromyalgia, I gained 20 pounds back - 230. I've stayed at that weight for over a year until last month. I've been exercising 1-2 times a day - 2 days on, 1 day off, and recording daily my water intake, exercise, and food amounts. In that past 3 weeks I've lost 3 POUNDS! I've found this journaling helps me to be successful with my goals. I've taken a meal or two and have eaten different food from my normal regiment over these 3 weeks. I record this as well. I'm learning not to 'beat myself up' when I do this. Life for me is all growing and learning about myself. I have faith in my success. I'm hoping SparkPeople will be another tool to complete my goal. Thanks for reading my blog! Best of Everything to You!
