I hope this is the last time I'm starting a weight loss journey--I've been down this road many times, many different ways but it always ended the same--the weight came back. Currently I'm working with a dietician who has tweaked my eating to lose weight but also fight the inflammation that caused my slipped and torn discs to hurt daily. I've been off gluten, dairy, soy, sugar and artificial sweeteners for nearly a year and only have soreness now when I'm in the car for hours at a time. it's really been amazing--I also sleep better (I was an insomniac for as long as I can remember) and my migraines have also gone away. I report by email to my sister in law every week on how things are going to keep me accountable, something I need badly. I have finally discovered an exercise that I LOVE--Zumba! I've never been active as an adult other than some walking but not for fitness. I was able to eat as much of anything as I wanted until my 20s without gaining weight and now have fought with episodes of binging for years.
Here's to a great start!
