I am fat! I have congestive heart failure issues, and I am getting old. I will be 60 in a year and a half and I don't want to go into my last 40+ years with weight. So I am back and I am trying again. Years ago it took me about 10 tries to stop smoking and I felt the same then as I do now. I feel ready. Why I never succeed I don't know but I have asked for prayer and I feel a motivation get this weight off. Praise God (in advance, speaking the things that are not as if they were Ro. 4:17) for my weight loss and a normal body weight.
My Goal for 2010 is just to get below 200 lbs. That is it. I'd be happy with that and it only requires a 5 lb drop so that is my goal. Doesn't sound like much but since I have been trying for many years I have decided on more realistic goals.
I have recently had a big change in my life. I had my yearly blood test and things did not look good. I refuse to take more pills so I have gone Vegetarian (97%) just to get my numbers in line again. I am tying to adjust and eat less all at the same time. Well see how it goes.
I love to read. I read my bible daily. My favorite Author is Jamie Langston Turner, but I also like Ted Dekker and Tim Downs, Sue Grafton. My favorite movie is Sense and Sensibility.
The best of luck to you. I too am trying to get off of some of my meds. I am diabetic with high blood pressure and other health problems. 90% of these problems are caused by excess weight. It can be done. I have had good luck so far by taking it slow and steady. You can do it. It is so worth it.
Welcome & good luck to you! Try to pick thru the site every day & be sure to read as often ( daily for me) as your schedule permits. I have learned a ton! Just remember to stay focused and take it in small steps. Lots of small steps are easier than a big leap. Don't try to be perfect, just a bit better each day, than the day before. Its 1 day at a time thing. Today is all any of us has. Don't fret over yesterday - its gone. Stay positive. You aren't alone here unless you wanna be & Together we can do it! And above all else Smile - it makes people wonder what you're up to! 8D
