Wow, I am so excited that I have to tell everyone about this! Everything is finally clicking for me! I have now lost a total of 48 pounds 7 of which I have lost since last Thursday!
Unfortunately, I developed Neuropathy in my feet about 2 years ago & doctors tested me for everything to find out why. The only thing they could come up with was that I am pre-diabetic & if I lose weight hopefully it will go away. Well the specialist I see for my Neuropathy referred me to a dietician. I've been seeing her for about a year and my weight has progressively gone down each time I see her but only a few pounds at a time as I only see her & my specialist about every 3 months. You see I would lose 7 pounds than gain back 5 so on & so forth. I saw her last Thursday & with the discussion we had she sensed that things are finally clicking for me! The whole lifestyle change versus diet. So she wants to see me back in a month & challenged me to lose 8 pounds by then. Guess what? I've already lost 7!
How you ask? I was eating better but now I'm eating very good! I'm eating more veggies & beans than I've ever ate in my entire life! I am trying veggies & beans that I've never even tried before & eating ones I refused to even try previously! I am veggie & bean abundant! Also the last couple of weeks I have started getting my butt in gear with exercise which admittedly I wasn't doing much of! I sit at a computer all day at work. Now I am doing Spark workout videos every couple of hours even if it's only for a few minutes at a time. Last night I went interactive on my U-Verse & discovered free workout videos there as well. I spent about 15 minutes last night doing those. Like other members have said, "Just move" even if it's only a little at a time!
My initial weight was 470. OMG how did I get so big? I am now at 422.6. My goal was to get down to 200 pounds & go from there. My new goal is to get down to 199. That way I will at least be in the 100's which I haven't been since what - 1st grade?
I am so pumped I will reach 199 pounds & maybe even lower! This is the 1st time in my 41 years of life that I know I will achieve my goal because there is no going back! Even when I make mistakes I will still move forward!
I have read so may success stories on Spark. There are so many life changing transformations! I will be one of them!!! Won't you come & join me???
