It is time to do something about it.
I am back here because I need to get it done. I have gained so much weight since I left the site, up to 278 pounds. I have a hard time reaching my foot and I am retaining water like no other. If I can't reach my feet just to put my shoes on or b... Read more

Any Advice is Welcome!
I need some advice. Last week, my daughter was playing on my lap, ( yes, she still does this at 6 years old), she told me she was fat. I had to say something to my mom if she heard what she said, she did and asked her who said it. My daughter wo... Read more
Ok, guys! I want to try this again.
Ok! I want to try to go on this diet again. This time, it will be 1740 to 2095 calories instead of the 1200 to 1550. The low calories will send my body into a starvation mode and I will start bingeing, which is what I'm trying to fight. Yes, I'v... Read more
Results of the 1200 to 1550 calorie diet.
I recently went on a 1200 to 1550 calorie diet a couple of weeks ago. I just wanted to mention that the diet failed, as usual. I lost 11 lbs. and regained it. I don't know what to do about this. I want to give up and face it that I will be like ... Read more
The Cake in the Ice Box
Ok, I'm trying to do this 1200 to 1550 calorie diet. This is day 3, and I'm not doing well. The first day, I failed with a huge baked potato with butter on it at supper time. Yesterday, Oct.8, I failed with not 1, but 2 slices of pizza that has ... Read more
So, I'm trying to cut my calories again. When I do this, I starve and I want to binge, and I have to fight the urges altogether. I haven't talked about this much on this site, probably because I'm embarrassed or scared to talk about it, but I ha... Read more
I thought I was going to die!
My feeling started last Friday. I don't know what happened, but my breathing slowly started to cut off. I have asthma anyway, so this made things worse. I've been trying to weigh myself once a week now, and last Friday, I weighed in at 252 lbs. ... Read more
What is Wrong With Me?
I do not understand what is wrong with me. Last Sunday morning, I weighed myself in at 247. Last night I weighed myself in at 255, then weighed in at 253 this morning. My scale is accurate, so I know it's not the scale bothering me. I somehow ga... Read more
Beautiful, breezy Thomas
Is this day just beautiful? It is nice and breezy here in Thomas, 61 degrees with very little wind. It's just perfect for me. I am hot-natured and you will never see me outside in 100 degree weather. In the winter, however, I will more likely to... Read more
My update at work
A couple of months ago, I posted in a blog about how many calories a day I was burning at work a day. I figured up 2207 and that was for the 7 1/2 hours, and this excluded the 30 minute break, that I was there. One time I decided to use a pedom... Read more
