Sunday Reflections

Sunday, August 01, 2010

Why does it seem like I have been down this road before?? Because I have!! Too many time to count. Looking back, I felt fat in high school and back then it was easy to just quit eating to lose 5-10 lbs. I survived on a diet soda and a candy bar. Not healthy but tell that to a kid!
Then after giving birth to my second son, I tried Weight Watchers and lost the 20 lbs and actually could get into clothes I wore in high school. That lasted for a few years and then I reacted to a stressful time in my life and put on over 100 pounds in just over a year. I couldn't deal with it for some time but then finally faced facts and this time I went on a liquid diet and lost 60 pounds in 4 months and kept going after going back on food and lost 90 pounds in all. That wasn't a realistic way to live as I didn't learn to change my eating habits and within 3 years the weight was back and more too.
Time for something else-went to Weigh Down which is a faith based weight loss program. That helped me lose about 60 pounds but when I quit attending meetings, I lost the group support and again, gained most of the weight back.
This time I am taking it slow, working to make life changes that I can live with for the rest of my life. I am lucky that so far my health has been good, I do have issues with triglcerides so hoping with losing the weight I will be able to get off the medication. I am making exercise a key ingredient in my journey along with making smarter choices on my food.
I want this to be the last time I ever have to lose this weight!
