Determined to lose...lol !
 
Hello to all, my name is Brandi. I am a 37yr. old mother of 3. I have been heavy all my life and for once and for all I am ready to loose the weight. I have small children that I want to see grow up and get married. I also want to be healthy again. As a result of my being morbidly obese ( 290lbs. ) I have hypertension and high cholesterol. I just want to be sexii again. My goal is to loose 60lbs. by my birthday 4/20. I know that this is 4lbs. a week but I am confident that I can do it. I am looking for friends to take this journey with so I will be commenting and posting almost daily. Good Luck to all who are struggling with me. We Can Do This !!!

Hi Guys !
 
I wanna say thanks for responding to my post. It is my intention to do a low carb diet combined with some protein shakes to sub for meals. I was very successful years ago with the low carb thing. I lost 30 lbs. in 3 mos. and I was hott to death...lol
I'm a sugar addict, i love nd crave sugar. I bought some pills to help with the sugar cravings so I should okay. Be back later, i'm working.

Hi Brandi,
I think a low carb diet can be good, as long as it's not a no carb diet! We need those good carbs for energy and brain function! Low carb doesn't work for me. I find the problem to be that I can't cut carbs forever and as soon as I start eating them again the weight all comes back! My plan is to eat a balanced diet and watch my calories. I don't plan to deprive myself of anything, just have very moderate portions. That combined with exercise exercise exercise and I think I can reach my goal!

before pics are great, that way you'll have something to compare the after pics to... even if you don't post them.

Hi Guys ND Gals !
 
This week has been horrible, I messed up all week but today i'm back on it. I'm not motivated but I know that when u gotta get back up and try it all again. Some times I feel like an addict. Well I guess I am an addict, my addiction is food. I'm stressed but I know when I reach my goal I'll be feeling really good. I'm so trying to see the light at the end of my tunnel. Thanks for the kind words of encouragement. confused:I

Try to cheer up, Brandi. I'm a food addict as well, and yes, it sucks.

If it helps any, I jumped (well, figuratively) for joy when I hit 300 pounds--it beats the heck out of 400, let me tell you!

I give you all the credit in the world for taking control of your problem before it got worse (like mine).

Now, get busy and do something other than think about food--I find the busier I am, the less I'm apt to go foraging for food.

Regards,
Michael
