I have been on Spark People for a while but after having emergency surgery last year I fell back into poor eating habits.
I am a single mother to 3 children (15, 14, and 12).I am a Middle School Art teacher. February 27, 2019 I had appendicitis. I went in for surgery and they found I also had a hernia, fibroid tumors in my uterus, and gall stones. The only thing that was done was the appendectomy and they stitched my hernia. I was not allowed to do anything for 3 months and could not take pain meds because I am a single mother and needed to be able to drive the kids to and from school and take care of them. I think I turned to food for comfort again. I was 195 lbs before my surgery and now I am back up to 245. I hate the fact that I have gained 50 lbs in less than a year. I am ready to try something new. I have heard a lot about Keto and figure it is worth a try. I am going to do meal planning for the week and hope to do freezer meals. I will do the cooking on the weekends that way I won't have to worry about cooking during the work week when I am too tired to do anything. I joined the biggest loser club at work and I am hoping that will help keep my motivation and keep me on track.

My Goals:
General Goals:
I need to record all my calories every day!
I need to drink a lot of water.
No Soda, fat and very minimum bread.
Exercise at least 20 minutes on treadmill per day!

My Program:

I am going to start the Keto Diet Monday 1/27/20. I am going to try to figure out what macro combo works for me but will start with 119 g of Fat, 75 g of Protein and 18 g of Carbs per day. We will see if I can maintain that... since I have never done this I won't know until I try.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Philadelphia PA. We moved to NC when my ex-husband's job was outsourced to India. I miss some family and friends that I left behind there and I miss some of the food that you can get there...(Amaroso rolls, Wawa, Yum Yum donuts, all the good pizza places....cheese steaks and cheese fries) but I would never move back. I love it here!

Other Information:
I don't remember where I heard this...maybe Turbo Jam maybe Biggest loser...but it is true:

"Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!!!!"

    Hi--thank you for your comment on my blog today. :-)

    You and I have some stuff in common--similar weight, similar yo-yo'ing in the past year, similar used to turn heads ... and we WILL get this done this time. By our anniversaries--right? I'm with you--I just want to keep doing it this time.

    Here's to us, being slim by the end of 2012!!
