Hi! My name is Sue, and I'm trying to stay motivated to eat in a healthy way, overcome my problem of binge eating, and exercise. I'm an enthusiastic gardener and live in Coastal Maine.

My doctor told me this morning in no uncertain terms that I need to lose weight because of shortness of breath. Today I feel the way I felt 27 years ago when I finally got sick enough of drinking to quit. I'm scared that I'll fail (again) in my weight-loss quest, but I also really want the ...
Hi! My name is Sue, and I'm trying to stay motivated to eat in a healthy way, overcome my problem of binge eating, and exercise. I'm an enthusiastic gardener and live in Coastal Maine.

My doctor told me this morning in no uncertain terms that I need to lose weight because of shortness of breath. Today I feel the way I felt 27 years ago when I finally got sick enough of drinking to quit. I'm scared that I'll fail (again) in my weight-loss quest, but I also really want the benefits I'll get from it.

Update: Now I've been diagnosed with Barrett's esophagus caused by longterm acid reflux. Since that can be a precancerous condition, it's all the more important for me to get to a healthy weight.

Recommitting!

Thanks for the 'likes' today. I have been here rarely of late, but did buy the Spark Tracker in the fall (which needs the battery changed, but I seem challenged...) and we have just joined the local (well, as local as it gets around here) fitness place. I am determined to track at least that much as I ease back in here. Nice to hear from an old friend!!
