Going to lose that weight!

How: Taking it one day at the time. With the good choises, the right food and excersising. And if I go over one day. There is always tomorow.

It will go slow for I have Hypothyroidism. It will be hard because I'am a carb-junky. But it wil be done.

update: It's not going slow at al. I'am only 10 lb behind the ideal scedual of 2 lb los a week and that after 11 month, thats almost nothing. WHOO HOO

updat 2: I did hit a plateau and had a summer ease periode. Fact is and was that after losing more then 85 LB and starting to function fine with my current weight, I became a bit ... less motivated.
I did excercise as I love it, but i was less contious on my eating which did gain me 3 LB at one point ... O.K. I was on vacation ... I lost it and lost an other 5 Lb and gained those back and lost them and gained them back ... I kept on losing and gaining the same 5 LB weighting between 182 Lb and 177 Lb. dec 31 I was at the same level as I was after my vacation in september. I weighted 182 Lb. My condition has improved tremendous, but my weight wasn't improving at all.

I made a little eating change and I have lost 9 Lb since new year ... I guess I broke my plateau of month. I hope I wont hit one soon again .... But if I do:


Updat 3: Now I'am losing 5 LB between 175-170 LB over and over .. *shakes head with small grinn* I gues It goes in small chucks. Somehow it doesn't bother me that much. I continue is I have befor and I will -somewhere in the future- reach my goal.

Update 4: Now it's between 169 and 164 ... what is this???? Wel I'm getting fitter every day. Doing 5 Ks under 28 min. Pushing weight around like it's nothing. That's worth something (if not a lot) ...

Updat 5: sport is healthy for you ... is it ... I'm back on the couch with my leg in a cast. I ruptured my achilles tendon. Been there, done that WHY DOES HAPPEN AGAIN. It's my other leg so they are even now (although my left must heal first)

    You can't possibly be in worse shape than I am. BUT, everyday is a new day. We're all in this together.

    I am so very glad to see you back my friend. Catch your breath, and just relax.
    I am heavier than I've ever been. But I'm home now (the apartment was too small for all 4 of us, so I got voted off the island. lol)
    My son is doing better. He got accepted into the neuroscience programme and is starting on his 3rd BSc. However, he thrives in the university environment. Still can't walk, talk, eat, or use a keyboard but they have people to translate from his letterboard to various forms. He did get his trach out and speech is coming back slowly as is walking. He has a cell phone now (mostly as a medic alert system with panic buttons) but I did get a very clear NO! when I asked him if he wanted me to visit.
    Now that I am back home I am more determined than ever to get back on track. I'm not beating myself up - I did what I had to do to get through some very rough times. BUT they are over! I am still a red bull. I used the exercise room this morning and am just heading over to the pasture to let the other bulls know.
    I am soooooo glad to hear from you again. Nobody knows better than me how life can interfere with plans, but whenever you get a chance come on over and let me know how you're doing.

    You are a great inspiration! I have had autoimmune hypothyroidism since I was 21 and have been overweight for most of the 12 years since then. I have been really hopeless lately about getting rid of the extra 45 or so lbs that I've been carrying around, feeling like losing it is impossible. Reading your story is uplifting and helps me know there is hope!
