Wow!

That's extreme. Our stories are similar, but different. I don't like hot foods. I do like sweets.

I did go an an extremely strict 1200 calorie a day diet and only lost 1 pound a month. (Still that is something!) My dietician wanted me to go down to 800 calories a day, and I refused. I already felt tired and cranky on 1200. I basically gave up dieting for many years.

I came to SP not to lose weight, but to learn about strength training. I wanted to build up my energy. SP has helped me to get healthy in many ways, including weight loss!

Basically, I gave up everything pertaining to food a long time ago. I don't eat out. I avoid the grocery store. I don't eat sweets. I eat raw and living food only. I eat fruit and vegetables. I will do a protein shake with enzymes every day with stevia. I crave hot sauce, hot peppers and apple cider vinegar. I only drink warm water. I eat 3 salads a day with only living food and no cheese, no croutons, (nothing dead). I put straight Balsamic vinegar on each salad mixed with some olive oil and Crystal hot sauce. The salads consist of cucumbers, hot peppers, mushrooms, different combined lettuces, cabbage, carrots, broccoli. I eat one apple a day with fresh blueberries covered with real cinnamon. This is all I eat every day of my life. I have not had a soda in years. I do not ever crave anything sweet. I do not crave bread. I do not crave carbs. I feel wonderful. I feel as if I am 20 years old. I am extremely happy and emotionally stable in every way. But there is one huge problem, I never exercise because in 1998 I blew a disc exercising and was bedridden for 9 months. Now aggressive exercise terrifies me and I will never do it again. I do walk though, and take stairs. I am on zero medication. I have nice blood pressure and a nice smooth heart beat. I have never taken prescriptions for anything in my entire life other than, maybe, a bladder infection which is very rare. The other huge problem is I am extremely overweight. I am 5'3 and weigh 160 lbs and wear a size 10. I find this extremely unacceptable. I gave up on diets many years ago because I never lost one ounce and then after all the hard work, I would become hysterical and have a breakdown and that is why I stopped trying. Between 1979 and 1995, I probably invested $50,000 in different diets, groceries, special food, supplements, shakes, etc. Never lost one ounce. I have done them all, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Protein diets, low fat diets. I have tried every one that ever came out. Every single one. Not one ounce was ever lost. The day came that I had a breakdown when the last diet showed zero weight loss and I had a breakdown. It was a 911 situation. I thought I would have a heart attack from the shock. I would always lose inches. But never an ounce. I do not want to lose just inches. I want to lose inches and pounds together. Ever since then I stopped trying and I have been wonderful and I am not consumed and I am not obsessed concerning dieting. I still have not lost an ounce. I am still kind of afraid to try again for fear my hard work will not show a result and then I could have a possible breakdown. It's like working hard at a job for 6 months and never receiving a paycheck. That is my story. Has anyone else been through this?
