After a huge wake up call from my doctor I am back on track, this time for good. I am reading up on nutrition, not just weight loss this time. I have several coworkers who are pitching in to keep each other on track, a friend to help me during those dinners out, a husband who is willing to try a few new foods and a doctor ready to scare me back to reality if I don't take it seriously. Really I feel I have the best support line up so far.

I've lost 5 pounds so far towards my first goal of 50, so I am 10% of the way there!! I am super pumped and have spent the past couple of weeks really gearing myself up for the long hall. Even purged my kitchen cupboards.

My Goals:
I chose 50 pounds for my first goal. My doctor thinks that is a good place to start. With family history and weight I am heading towards becoming a diabetic. My primary goal is to keep that from happening.

My Program:
I am going to follow my doctor's advice. 1400 calories a day, a little more on days I exercise. He also suggested coming up with just a few options for each meal until I get on a role. My doctors advice of limiting myself to just a couple of meal options just did not work for me. I get bored with food very quickly. So I am gradually trying to adapt advice from Gillian McKeith's "You Are What You Eat" TV Show and book. Not the dramatic 8 week version you see on tv, but a gradual integration of whole foods.

Personal Information:
I'm married with 2 fur babies. I live in a quiet town. I'm a retail manager in a department store. I'm a Farscape fanatic.

    Hi there! Saw you on the Disboard team. Thought I would drop by and say Hi!!

    i agree with the previous comment form KAM13D. Slow and steady wins every time. I 'm completely changing my lifestyle. Found out the hard way diets and plans do not work long term for me. So far I've taken off 55 and have about 140 to go. I make small goals every so many weeks and its working.
    So see you can do it. Just keep on plugging away one day at a time.

    Hi - saw your post today about gaining 3 pounds, and I hurt along with you. I think at this point, if you are staying within your allotted calories and such on your food tracker, that you need to both have someone analyze your food intake for you and see a doctor.

    And if its a matter of not staying withing your goal range on the food tracker, then I urge you to go through all the great articles here - writing out your goals and the reasons you NEED to lose weight. Would it help for you to receive a phone call every morning to rev up your motivation every day?

    You can do this - you just have to WANT to do it! We are all here for you!
