I have lost weight before...several years ago...and since then I have gained it all plus some. Actually more than just some. I was doing great when I was losing weight...I was exercising and eating right, drinking water all the time. I would exercise because I loved how it made me feel! I felt great back then! Everyone commented on how good I was looking.
I feel tired all the time and I have ZERO motivation! I'm on meds for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, acid reflux, asthma and allergies. I know that if I lost weight a lot of those issues would probably correct themselves...although I have always had allergies and asthma.
I was a skinny kid...and adult...could eat anything and everything! I didn't start gaining weight until I was pregnant with my daughter. When the OB Dr told me I need to watch my weight I was like "what? watch it pack on?!?" I had NO IDEA how to watch my weight...I had never had to do that before...When I went in to deliver I weighed 187 lbs. ...now I'm at 257 lbs! That is just crazy! And it make me cry to think of how I have let myself get like this.
My Dad passed away in 2001 from a massive heart attack...he had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. You would think that would be all the motivation I need. I breaks my heart to think I could be headed down the same road.
I hope that SparkPeople will be the help I need to get my ass moving and eating right. I KNOW what I need to be doing...DOING IT is the hard part!
