My Weight Experiences

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I never had a weight problem in life until after my 2nd child I was 26. I gained 60 lbs. the same as with my 1st pregnancy at 20 but no problem losing it then.
I have been yoyoing ever since that is 30 years. I had the pills and weight watchers, the zone and many others. I lost 30 lbs. in the first few months on sparkpeople. I was doing great then I had my health setbacks and gained most of it all back. Up and down, up and down my life story.
I am sure I have emotional issues but can't relate them to my eating habits. I eat when I am rushed or over tired. My foods of choice are anything sweet, baked goods, chocolate, candy and ice cream. I can tell you the best places to get ice cream pretty much anywhere in Southwestern Ontario up to the Muskokas. LOL The worst part is if I am strict with myself and don't eat the sweets I don't miss them. My other biggest factor is price if they have choc. bars on sale and I buy more than one I eat them all. Sometimes searching the house to make sure all the sweets are gone. I know now to not bring the stuff into the house to start with or I will eat it. I have also learned that if I do really crave chocolate or ice cream to go out and pay the extra to buy 1 cone or 1 bar and then eat it and leave the rest at the store.
I know for me planning and getting the food ready ahead of time is important. The nutrition tracker is very helpful. I haven't been using it the past couple months and I know I have been going up and down again. I also haven't been doing as much exercise. I can't walk like I would like I am in too much pain afterwards. I know they say babysteps and I have been trying to get out and walk almost everyday. My feet hurt 24/7 but my back and hips etc. hurt after walking.
I am looking forward to July I will be done my current job and I will get back to the pool daily. I have my first appt. on July 14th to go to a weight loss clinic run by a doctor and covered by our health plan. It is very extensive and many tests are given to get the exact food intake for my resting metabolic rate. I am excited to get started on it. I will incorporate sparkpeople and the clinic and get myself into the shape I know I can. I will be able to go to the pool daily again and that will be good for my pain and weight loss.
I am reading the spark right now and plan on using all the tools from both places to help with my journey to a healthier me.
Keep on tracking and I am so happy to have found spark actually my daughter told me about it. Teri
