Ok, My story = Well, some of you have been with me for a long time but some of you are new friends. Many of you may not realize my past "glories" (lol) a couple of years ago I lost 98 pounds in one year by exercising and low carb. I was so happy and boy my doctor was happy with me too! Then my Daddy died and my world fell apart. I regained all I had lost and then some. I have restarted my journey as of February 2016. At this point...well I am nearly bed bound, I can barely walk and I must lose weight. my weight at restart is 435 pounds give or take a pound. I really want to do this so that my hubby does not have to be my caretaker anymore.

    emoticon emoticon As I was visiting working my spark challenges, I read so many comments concerning regaining the weight after reaching goal weight.

    This concerns me, my friends, as I too have regained some weight. Even though I hadn't reached my goal weight. I had slipped into depression and had stopped exercising. I do know the reason behind my weight gain.

    I would like to point out that this is not a diet, it is a way of life. It is not something you do to fit into that special dress or to look good for your daughter's up coming wedding or your reunion. This has to be a new learned way of eating healthy for the rest of your life and exercising regularly. I cannot stress it enough that this must become a life style for you it YOU WANT to remain at your healthy goal weight.

    Once you get to your goal weight, you may want to discuss with your doctor on how best to increase your calories for weight maintenance. Yes, I said increase your calories. You will slowly increase your calories just a little, in order to maintain that new you. But you must continue to exercise in order not to regain weight.

    Again, I cannot stress this enough that you need to talk to your doctor or even a dietician. Losing weight and exercising is a great way to get in shape, but there is so much more to maintain that new found health.

    I want all of you to be Happy Healthy and Fit.....read, research and talk to fitness experts, doctors and dieticians.
    Love
