Hi. I'm Debi.
First of all, can anyone tell me how to put my photo with my sign-on???
Okay - I have the book PB. I've tried reading it but have no concentration. But I think I have the basic idea.
My journey started 4 years ago at 327 lbs. I am currently 49 years old. I joined Weight Watchers and did the Core program. I quickly lost 100 lbs in the first year and gradually lost another 40 lbs the next year. Since then I have been up and down - gaining back as much as 60 lbs and losing some of it back again. Currently I weigh around 215 (not sure because of holiday binge eating).
Two weeks ago I started holiday binge eating in earnest. The past 24 hours I have been gorging to the point that my heart is racing and I feel physically sick. So I'm not waiting for New Years Day. I'm starting tomorrow and I'm ready to make drastic changes.
The little I have read in PB makes a lot of good sense to me I'm working with someone locally who will mentor me for 6 weeks to get me started.
I'm pleased that I've kept most of my weight off, but frustrated that I still have such an addiction to food - sweets and bakery goods especially.
I am not an athlete. But since losing weight I have started some bike riding and I regularly dance (ballroom and swing). I do belong to a gym and will be looking to get into a regular exercise routine pretty quickly.
My plans for tomorrow are to have:
BF: 2 eggs fried in butter, 1/4 avocado, with some ham
L: grass-fed hamburger patty, 1/4 avocado, on a bed of spinach
D: Steak, 1/4 avocado, w Brocolli
I guess I'll boil up some eggs for snacks. I did pick up some nuts but noticed someone on here mentioned the nuts might slow down weight loss. So I'll have them on hand for "emergency."
I have some organic strawberries and small apples. I wonder if I should hold off on eating fruit for a few days while I adjust to getting off the sugar.
I have some pictures - a decent BEFORE picture from when I was around 327 lbs and a current one. I'll try to figure out how to post those later.
I welcome pointers.
