I'm 43 and a chronic dieter. You name it, I've tried it. It's been over 20 years now since starting the yo-yo way of life. 2 years ago my PC told me I had diabetes (she's a most skilled manipulator) which scared me into losing 25# with a reduced carb diet (wonder why that worked ). I am a 1yr8mo breast cancer survivor with a husband and 2 young ones at home. Since the cancer crap I've gained back every ounce of the 25# lost the year prior. I do believe my diet/environment had everything to do with that phase of my life. Time to change!
I'm tired of failing (fear of succeeding maybe?) and really want to do this. However (I will not say 'but'), I'm struggling to start. I'm great following a prescribed plan (Nutri-System, Jenny Craig, Optifast) to get me started. I do have the support to keep me on track. Have I mentioned I'm a serious carb-aholic? Aren't we all?
I am committing to 1 month of PB living (baby steps) - starting August 1st.
First goal: 223 (10% current weight)
