LOl I think I might be getting a cold or something ...Or it could be snacking to much last night not an enormous amount just more than usual binge like behavior that I held to a limit I think it made me sick .. Oh well gotta get a hold on things
I hope your all doing way better than me today

Judy, Just listen to your body. I don't feel guilty about taking some time off whether it's due to my body or bad weather. Hope you feel like yourself soon!

I am brand new at this and really getting used to how to reply or even put a message on here.

My name is Paul, I am in Massachusetts, have suffered with a life long weight issue and before I jump off a bridge ( only kidding) but that is where i am at. afraid of diabetes and other potentially dangerous illnesses from it. I have been thru the roller coaster ride long enough.

Thanks

Hi Paul welcome to our little group I like to encourage people to eat for better nutrition rather than dieting it accually has to be a life change diets are missleading because people think Oh great I stay on this diet for a few months even a year then i can eat what i want,, if you want to remove weight and keep it off you really need to change your way of dealing with food forever no going back to old ways . If you are ready to do that we are here to help I am from Ma too

Hi Paul, Welcome!
A lot of us started out our journeys for the weightloss, some of us have remedied some very severe health problems by losing some weight and eating a healthier choice of foods.
I started out at 253lbs in early Jan of 2012 diagnosed with severely high blood pressure and was put on meds for it. Scared the bejeesus outta me. Was told by dr that I'd be on those meds for the rest of my life, by May, I'd dropped 50lbs and was walking daily and my bp was at normal range. Off the meds.
Judy has all but worked miracles with her healthier eating. She was fast losing her eyesight and started researching how to eat better for her eyes. Along the way she dropped 100 or so lbs and her eyesight has stabilized.....
Most of us suffer some sort of Arthritis, eating better, losing weight and getting more active has helped each and every one of us with the pain we suffer from it.
Don't jump off a bridge just get on the bus with us. We are all on this journey together.
Start a food and fitness planner, fitday.com, WebMd, LiveStrong.com.... wherever, they are all free and indispensible tools to help log all your daily foods and exercise.
Read labels, there are foods and condiments that you love.... read the backs and make the best, healthiest possible choices when purchasing. Buy light, fat free, or low fat/low or no sodium added, fruit in natural juice, fresh meats, veggies and fruits are best. Cook from scratch using these instead of buying premade , or microwave meals. That way you control everything that goes into your meals.
Drink lots of water, somewhere right around 64 oz a day.
And blog. It really helps you stay focused when you can come here, and talk about anything that is happening in your life, because when you have the right kind of support, you can BUILD bridges instead of jumping off of them, lol.

Welcome Paul! Good for you to make the decision to get healthy. Your story is like many of ours here. I was obese for most of my life and I'm now in maintenance. I had to change my whole thinking about food and look at it more as nutrition than pleasure. I have to keep foods that I know I cannot leave alone out of my house. Although I have worked diligently to not use food for comfort, etc., I still, almost 2 years into this journey cannot trust myself around certain foods. Clean out your pantry and log your food. Be mindful of everything you consume. Exercise your body. Good luck!

Judy, I get it, when I lived out in the country I had to make do and actually would go up and down the two (2) stairs over and over again to music. I did get a work out! I used water bottles too.

Paul, Welcome here. Get rid of the white carbs. I know it is hard...at first. But the healthier you eat, the better you will feel, in your head and your body.

Move more. Walk 15 min. a day and add to that.

Let us know how you do.

You can do this.

Barb
