Biggest Goal---Saving My Life

Self-destruction has many agents; mine have been gluttony and sloth. I have plenty to live for; sick and tired of being sick and tired-- ate myself into diabetes and severe high blood pressure; parts of me are beyond repair so having to adapt to limitations. I weighed over 200 lbs from July of 1997 (highest weight 245) until early Sept 2015; enough is enough!!
I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 inches and I want it down ...

I actually have goal measurements more than a goal weight; my highest waist measurement was 51 inches and I want it down to 28 w/ the rest proportionate. My final goal of 145 lbs will put me in healthy BMI territory--maintained close to that weight for a long time in the past, especially once I add some more muscle.
I want my hourglass back (tired of being shaped more like a barrel)...here's to success!!!

Fitness Minutes: 607

My Goals:
Getting my weight down to 145 from my worst of 245 should get rid of my high blood pressure and control my Type 2 diabetes--no longer dragging around 100 lbs of dead weight should help my fatigue and foot and knee pain a lot!
Working on developing an adapted exercise program, taking my foot/hand/knee damage into consideration; a strong heart and strong muscles will enable me to do all I need and want to do!!

My Program:
Food: Refusing to suffer for the sake of a food plan; if it's not delicious, I'm not going to eat it! Using Ornish Spectrum emphasizing groups 1,2, and 3 d/t persistent health issues; long term goal is to develop an effective, sustainable lifestyle.
Exercise: Designing a plan working around my limitations (very painful ruined feet etc) so using a good home pedaler, body weight, free weights, Pilates etc.
Attitude: treat myself like I matter--made my body into living sacrifice for enough years to essentially ruin my health so now focusing on getting better and taking care of ME.

Personal Information:
Tired, lumpy-but-shrinking, disabled middle-aged Respiratory Therapist returned to near Cincinnati after living w/ adult daughter for two years in Kansas City (stepson lives in Anchorage, AK); originally from SW MO. Fed up with being chronically ill which is mostly due to chronic self-neglect and food abuse.
Live w/ husband who has serious mobility and breathing problems and four spoiled-rotten assorted purebred cats. Major task this year is resuming decorating and refurbishing our modest but cute elderly house.

Other Information:
Love sewing and needlework (bought yarn as souvenirs in both Ireland and Alaska); if arthritis and neuropathy in hands give me problems I read instead. Really enjoy recipe collecting/inventing; learning how to make healthy versions of my ethnic faves.
Also really into purebred cats; ask me about Cat Fanciers Association shows!

Having mild diabetes definitely trumps the limited meal structure of No S. We're not talking about simple hunger here! I have seen people on the original site be able to use 3 meals; I'm pretty sure they had total control over when they ate and did not have to rush any meals. It does likely mean you may have to adjust the size of the plate/meal if you need to eat more often. Or put the food on a meal-sized plate, and reduce the next meal by that volume. emoticon

Dukan is a great diet. I can't eat all of the carbs that South Beach phase 2 recommends either as I have hypoglycemia. I hope you find some good recipes.

It was great to hear from you!!

I hear you about the ruined feet. After my 20 years working as a nurse nearly everything I had was wreaked in some way or another.

Missouri is a beautiful state. We have vacationed there a couple of times.

We love it here. We are the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks.
