Hi, I'm Vicki and I'm 52 years old. I've decided as long as I'm between my calorie range of 1400-1800, then I'll be doing good.
It's like I'm on a roller coaster of emotions all the time. One minute I want to lose this weight more than anything in the world. The next I don't give a damn (excuse the cuss word). I think part of it could be due to the carb addition I have as well as sugar addition. I try to control both as much as I can. I don't have that much trouble with sugary foods, but other carbs cause me serious problems, yet I can't commit to doing a full low carb plan. Maybe if I did then I wouldn't have the mood swings as badly.
I'm terrified I'm going to end up back to the weight I was in the early 80's. I'm only 21 lbs away from it now.
I want to get down to 185 lbs and then maintain it. I just don't know if I'll ever get back down to even close to that number again. I don't even know if I'll ever see 195 again. I want out of this size body sooooo badly and I'm so torn. I can't keep the motivation because of the mood swings plus a hubby that doesn't want me dieting yet he doesn't like how I've "let myself go".
