I am very blessed with amazing children, a supportive and caring man that I pray to share my life with, a fulfilling career that I am working to further along with education and still I weigh 340 lbs and get winded doing 15 minutes on a bike. How embarrassed am I? The part of my life that requires, at present, some significant work is clearly my health. I have been overweight for most of my life, 22 of 32 years. Of those 22 years I have spent at least 18 on the wrong side of 200lbs and into the morbidly obese land. That being said, I was able to walk, dance, play and enjoy life until recently where I find myself easily winded, achy, low energy and with sleep apnea.... WHAT FUN!!!! I have lost 110 lbs on my own in the past only to regain all but 15 of them. I recently lost 50 only to regain 55. sighhhhhhhhhhh This time it has to be once and for all like the title of my page suggests. It has to be a lifestyle shift for good, more exercise (or ANY) and healthy choices for food. Im sure I am a food addict and an undercover binger.... I just can't take it anymore. I made the choice yesterday and started a gym and counting calories, up to 2000 for now.
It just has to be done and I know that while I have supportive people in my life they just don't understand how I feel and what I am going through. I even have overweight and obese friends who are either in denial, content, or have weight loss surgery and still don't do too well. I joined sparkpeople thinking that maybe I would find a kindred spirit or two that I can help and be helped by.
