By 1977, I was starving myself by eating cabbage soup and working out many hours each day, working full-time, and swimming 10 laps in back yard pool. I got down to 125 lbs. and a size 8.
By 1991, I had my 3rd child at age 41. I've never been able to fully remove all the weight I gained in pregnancy. I did get down to 168 in 2002, but with a back injury in 2008, and confined for several years, the weight has been impossible to get off.
I went through menopause at age 56 in 2006. The highest the weight went up to was 224, but I've been around 203 - 213.
I need to get it off. I don't want to starve myself but I know its the ONLY way to lose.
Starve meaning depriving of calories down to 1000 for at least 6 months. I can do it.
213.0. current stubborn weight. I was 209.1 a few weeks ago and I had some WHITE food that blew me up like a balloon.
Goal - 48 lbs. in 6 months.
