Diabetes killed my Dad on June 1/2011
My Mother had a heart attack and a stroke before the age of 60
I am a sitting duck
My name is Stephanie I am 34 years old and weigh 315lbs...
I found FitDay yesterday by accident and decided to join. I want to lose weight more than anything, however, the task seems so daunting. I have a long road ahead and I'm not sure if I can make it.
I have tried to lose weight so many times before, Weight Watchers, Atkins, Smart For LIfe, South Beach, Curves Diet, Soups/shakes/bars I have failed so many times to count and I am afraid I will be obese for the rest of my life.
I joined FitDay because I want to make a change. I'm tired of people telling me I have a pretty
or I would be so beautiful if I just lost some weight. I'm tired of not fitting into chairs or having to think twice before sitting down to make sure I don't break them. I want to ride on a roller coaster and shop in regular store for cute clothes.
My goal right now is to learn about myself and my habits, I want to just log my food, moods and maybe use the journal. I have a friend that told me to write down everything I ate, not to diet at first just to log my intake, how I feel, what triggers me to eat etc etc. She tells me you can't move forward unless you know where you are at! I think she's on to something...
So I am giving myself the next month to track everything and hopefully I learn something about myself.
I need all the support, encouragement, tips I can get.
