Well I've been here before....on the weight loss trail, but THIS time I have help. And a better attitude. I think a positive attitude is the key to sticking to a weight loss plan. I call it a plan because it is a never ending journey, you don't just QUIT eating right and never gain weight again....this is for life.
Now, If my body will just stop sabotaging me. ( bulging disc in lower back and degenerative arthritis in lower back and ankles...how the heck do you walk without using your ankles!!! ) My goal is to move more and push thru the pain. I am going to do this!!!

Joined Spark pages but didn't really start really being a sparkie till the Winter of 2009, when I was up to 242 lbs.
Set my Goals and lost 45 lbs. Life happened and I gained a bit back. I'm back on Track to get to goal. My goal at 5'10" is 175.

With some support from our buddies we can all be FANTASTIC no matter where we are on our journey!
I turned the Big FIVE OH 2 years ago!!...working on a better me, mentally and physically; I am going to be an AWESOME "old" lady!

    emoticon I'm trying not to spend so much time on Sparks as I've been here for over 9 yrs now. I went to a new doctor on Monday who specializes in anti-aging. He talked to me for half hour about how I had PCOS(Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome) from age 13 & how I'd gained so much weight during each pregnancy but lost it while nursing. I told him I've been fat since I've been 41 & I just haven't been able to get down under 160#. So he put me on Metformin, even though my blood sugar is at 115 & diabetes is at 126. He says it will help (Richard Bernstein M.D. in "The Diabetes Solution" says all obese people can benefit from Metformin for weight loss.) He had read Dr. B's book. He gave me a new version of Phentermine but I only took one tab yesterday. I'm taking a low dose of thyroid medicine at night which he said would help, even though my thyroid is okay. He says we all lose thyroid as we age. He gave me a couple other meds to take as well. So, I'm doing low carb and I plan to stay seeing him once a month. He doesn't take insurance, but he only charged $75 and my medical covered the pharmacy. So, that is where I'm at now. i so want to be slim again and STAY there. Hugs.
