Believe it or not, I have been a member of SparkPeople quite some time. However, I have not actively done anything about my lifestyle change and weight loss other than joining and reading some of the blogs. Today was a good day; and the best day to begin becoming a new me!

I like many women am sick and tired of wearing the 20's. I found myself pulling away from my husband because of the absolute disgust I feel toward my body. How can you push away a many who loves you unconditionally????? Being overweight will make you push people away. Not happy with my body and unwilling to accept compliments because I cannot get past my own thoughts. I remember my mother telling me that I was my harshest critic. She had certainly hit the nail on the head.

The burden of my weight affected my ability to enjoy myself - and mingle with his friends. I cannot continue to avoid pictures or avoid looking at them once their taken because of my weight.

I am disgusted that my body image has been projected onto my daughter. She looks like me - in more ways that one! How can I worry about her health and weight, when I'm not doing anything to change me?????

Rome wasn't built in a day, nor did I become overweight overnight! I recognize that I have to crawl before I walk - walk before I run. Tracking and blogging will help me to take the baby steps required before I soar!

No excuses - I resolve to be a better me.

Go D-Dub!!!!!

    Thank you for your comment on my weight loss. Yes, I am under the care of a Registered, licensed dietician for the pass 3 months, and she has helped me tremendously.

    I like you have been up and down trying to lose weight. I succeed for the most part but have been through a lot of the past 10 years, including selling my house and downsizing last year. But I never give up.

    It was my younger daughter's suggestion that I seek out a RD and I am so glad that I did.
    So I do the macro diet. I lost back last year during the summer like 4 pounds before having breast surgery, and vein surgery on my legs. But after having a papilloma removed from my left breast, (not cancer), it was recommended that I lose 60 pounds. Since things have settled with having made my move to a condo, I am seriously working on the weight issue.

    One of the biggest things that help me keep my eye on my goal, well two, is I watch "My 600-lb Life" and the fact that my daughter is getting married next May; plus I really want to enjoy being healthy for the rest of my life.

    So although I have lost like 6 pounds per month for like 3 months, it is slowing down, but that's why I have a double carb day once a week.

    Although I have been active in doing daily chores and shopping and wear a pedometer, I now am working out with TRX suspension training system at home and at the chiropractor's office who is a certified Russian Kettlebell instructor. So I am working right now on mobility and strength training as well with the suspension straps, dumbbells, a kettlebell, and calisthenics. And that all helps. But I only do the weights like about 3 days out of the week to give my muscles a chance to recover.

    I hope you have a great day and wish you much success in your journey to better health.
