My name is Lori. I am 38 yrs. old, and I am more than 200lbs. overweight!! I have had a weight problem my entire life. I weighed over 250lbs. when I graduated high school. I knew I LOOKED bad, but I really didn't feel that bad, so I didn't think it was a big deal. As I got older, my health continued to deteriorate. Now, I weigh 421lbs., and I know if I don't lose the weight, I am going to die. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea, etc. The list goes on and on. On June 13th, I started a new diet, and I have lost 45lbs. so far!! I am very excited about getting healthier and having a better life. However, for the past week or two, I have found myself falling back into my bad eating habits. My husband tries to be supportive, but has a weight problem as well, so it is hard. I know that one of my major problems is lack of exercise, but I have a lot of physical limitations. Any suggestions??? I'll take all of the advice and encouragement I can get.

I start each morning with a protein shake. I eat small meals every 4 hours. ( I am diabetic.) I have stopped drinking soda completely. I try to eat more high-protein/high-fiber foods, and less carbs. I have two major problems with my diet program: I HATE VEGETALBES, AND I CAN'T EXERCISE!!
