Because I am worth it.

"If I am not for myself, who is for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?" ~Rabbi Hillel

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and
the stars; you have a right to be here. ~Desiderata

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. ~Thomas A. Edison"

Member Since: 1/6/2007

SparkPoints: 42,455

Fitness Minutes: 7,077

My Goals:
To be fit and healthy, and NOT have to wear "Plus-Sized" clothes!

My Program:
Fall 3,245,112 times, get up 3,245,113 times.

Using the Spark People food and fitness trackers have proven to be keys to my success.

Likewise, when I don't use them...I don't succeed.

Personal Information:
I'm a self-indulgent emotional binge volume eater and have been most of my life.

I am right on the cusp of being a full-blown diabetic, and I am now working with a bariatric physician to manage my disease. I am insulin resistant, my triglycerides are extremely high, and my liver enzymes are also high. Not to mention high blood-pressure. I either manage this or I die. It's that simple.

I want to renew my passion for Kettlebells, as I am convinced that they are the key to a healthy and fit rest of my life.

I'm a young 56, but I physically feel 75. I'm married to a super supportive man. I've got gown kids.

I have three very beloved Bernese Mountain Dogs; Sophie, Faith and Max. Max recently joined our family as our first foster dog...and we were almost immediately "foster failures".

Other Information:
I have a blog at www.corpulentcompulsions.blogspot.com

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

I hear the Southbeach diet is good and healthy. I am gluten and sugar fee myself and eat a diabetics diet less the gluten products.

Best wishes on reaching your goal. Remember one day at a time and one meal at a time making healthy choices.
