Well here we go again! Have been 300 lbs or more all of my adult life! That is going to change-off to a good start! Have learned so far-baby steps-1 day at a time. I am disabled due to degernative disc disease. It could be worse than what it is though. At least I can still get around-a little slow-but so goes life.... Sept. 2010 update.. I have been very slow at losing. It might get a little faster as I was diagnosed with pancreatis some time ago. Several months ago my body taught me that I could no longer eat beef or oils. Now it is teaching me that I can no longer eat sugar & am tolerating less fat. Used to be I could eat mayo-looks like no longer. Also not sure yet-but eggs may becoming a no-no. Time will tell. Can not eat much meat at all-so started protein shakes. They come in handy when food doesn't agree with me & causes pain & I get to the point that I know I need food. Am thinking now that my body may force me into losing weight! The fats & sugar are not good for me anyhow. I have been addicted to sugar-but the fats really have been no problem for me. I love my veggies & fruits & can still eat them.
