I have been reading The Virgin Diet and am very interested. I am just getting back to SparkPeople. I am out of control eating bad stuff and feel yucky most of the time. Luckily health wise I am "ok" (on paper) except for high triglycerides. But I am 43 and my mom is diabetic on 9 medications. I would also like to help her better manage her nutrition- she is not overweight at all but it sickens me to see her on so many meds. I know she could better manage the diabetes with better nutrition and between the Virgin Diet and Schwarzbein Principle I think I can help her and I both. I have battled weight forever and am almost back to my highest ever. I feel bloated, tired, depressed, and have bad digestion issues, waking every day with a stomachache.
I do know that this feels like it will be really hard for me, I am a sugar-aholic and love bread and potatoes and my nemesis non-diet root beer. I hope being part of this SparkTeam will help me to stay motivated and upbeat. I have a 6 year old and two awesome older kids who will prob give me grand-babies in the next few years. I want to play with them all and be active. Love to you all and Happy Holidays!!!
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
