Who's with me?
I love food. And I don't have self control - therefore, I eat as much of anything that I want to eat. Thus I weigh 330 pounds. I like sugar, flour, & butter - in several varieties. I am beginning to realize that this way of eating is affecting my health and if I don't change it - I could shorten my life &/or have serious health problems, such as diabetes and heart problems. I have decided that I want to change my lifestyle. I will be going to the YMCA 5-6 days a week, following the SBD (south beach diet), juicing vegetables, doing cleanses, fasting, and meeting with a counselor to find out why my eating patterns are the way they are. I'm amazed that people can eat one or two cookies and then STOP - I don't. I wonder if there is some unconscious reason for that. Hopefully the counselor will clue me into this and help me replace this behavior with something healthier than a bag of oreos. Tyler gave me a blessing that I should seek the support of my family and friends to help me through this arduous task. I will begin this plan tomorrow. I am not asking for you all to do what I'm doing - but I would ask your support. This lifestyle will change so much for me, I won't be entertaining people with food - that will have to be replaced with non-food activities (games, etc). I LOVE to entertain people and I LOVE to cook/bake...that will be hard to change, but I feel that this is the time of year to begin. I love holidays, but after Easter - it's a while until July 4th. It's holidays that derail me from my dieting efforts. If there is anyone who is dieting/exercising/trying to be healthy - let me know! I'm here to support you as well. Who's with me?
