Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

emoticon from Orange County! The early part of your story sounds a lot like mine - I have somewhat different details than the second part of your story but similar outcomes to a degree. I tried a lot of different things and have had varying results but lately I've been following a low-carb/high-protein meal plan that seems to be working. Check with your doctor as a starting point and make small changes for the best results. It is almost always a huge mistake to try to 'change everything' at once because it's too hard to sustain over the long run.

Hi Julie, welcome to SparkPeople.
Sounds like you've been through some rough and stressful times.

Eating plan?
How about more fresh fruits and veggies, less processed food, and use the food tracker to
keep calories on track. That's all there's to it, really.

Other than that, stay connected here on Spark. Set up your page, make some friends, write a blog, check in every day.

Wishing you well.

Hi, my name is Julie and I live in Southern California. I just joined Spark People and am learing my way around I never had a weight problem until my late 30s early 40s when I gained 30 lbs. I was able to lose it using an early plan of Weight Watchers. In my late 40s I had a series of lifte events happen to me and the way I coped was to eat. The problem was that I did not stop when I gained 30 lbs. this time. I kept going and going until I weigh 280 lbs. at 56 years old. I just completed chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer and thought I would treat myself to a trip to PA to see my cousins. Booked my trip and checked on seat size and found out that I am most likely to big to fit in the seat. I am horrified and humilated and will have to cancel trip. I want and need to lose the weight for me and my health. I have been comfortable in my little limted life of 280 lbs. for around 4 years now but this incident with the plane seat makes me aware that their is much more life out there. I don't want to be stuck here any longer but it is comfortable and familiar. Just confused on which eating plan to use.
