Life Style Change, nope not a diet!

Hi,
I decided that I needed a change in life, a new direction if you will, what it took was not a doctor telling me I was going to die, no I do not think that would have work, not health scare, my triglycerides were already in the 400's and still I did nothing, nope that would not work. What it took was humiliation! Yep plain and simple humiliation! From my husband no less, whom probably did not even know he did it, or heck maybe he did, hard to tell with him. Here I was at the grand ...
Hi,
I decided that I needed a change in life, a new direction if you will, what it took was not a doctor telling me I was going to die, no I do not think that would have work, not health scare, my triglycerides were already in the 400's and still I did nothing, nope that would not work. What it took was humiliation! Yep plain and simple humiliation! From my husband no less, whom probably did not even know he did it, or heck maybe he did, hard to tell with him. Here I was at the grand total of 168 pounds, my husbands steps on the scale, I was in the bedroom and I can hear him slapping his belly gloating saying "ahhh 160!" All smug, yes he was smug. At 5'10 almost 5'11 he is at 160 here I am at 5'6 at 168. That was embarrassing and my wake up call. I ordered the book "The Hunger Fix" off Amazon started on a detox as soon as I got it and have been going strong ever since. Having that as your mantra, your husband's voice "Ahh 160" is a powerful motivator! I started the last week of April, have lost 21 pounds, I am now at 147, I was doing just arm exercises on the couch and today did my first floor weight exercises for over an hour. I can't do cardio so I have to stick with weight. I am trying to ensure I eat enough protien and fiber so that I build muscle and loose fat. I need to uptake my fat content some. But I have found since starting on this life style change that junk food and sweets are a lot easier to resist now than they used to be. I know I will have to stay away from them for life, but if I do fall off I have a program in place that will help me get back on the band wagon again and get me where I need to be. It is jot that hard it just takes making a choice one day at a time, and sometimes, one jour at a time, but the payoff so far has been worth it.

My Goals:
To sustain a life style change of healthy eating habits, to continue to recognize that I am a food addict and stay away from my trigger foods. To continue to find myself, to establish who I am, find my path in this life, and to continue my walk with the Lord.

My Program:
Eating healthy following The Hunger Fix program, exercizing as I can, with the constraints to my medical conditions, but knowing that each day is a choice is to be made to make a difference in my life for the right reasons to put me on the right path to achieve my goals, and each day gives me a new chance of being successful.

Personal Information:
I live in Florida, have had lots of personal set backs but that does not mean that one should ever give up. You just have to find the right time for you to decide that it is your time to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, knock some sense into yourself and get to work on doing what is right for you, no one else will domit for you, and no one else can motivate you like you can motivate yourself. You aren't going to do it for a doctor or a loved one the only one who can decide to change you is you. My time is finally now.

Thank you for your supremely kind words! It has not been easy, but it is so worth it - my body is so grateful for losing that extra person!
