I have started time and again. I have also come to realize that I have struggled with being discounted and ignored. I started a divorce, but paused it and am finding as the anger and resentment builds, I turn to who is always there... FOOD. It used to make me feel better (still does, but only very briefly) Lately I did give up again. Discomfort and health issues came creeping up.
Even though stbx has junk in the house, I am determined to plan my food (not yet measuring or counting calories) with 3 meals and 2 planned snacks. That, and a definite effort with exercise is already helping get myself more energy and a much better , more positive outlook . I have finally decided to take charge and reclaim my life. With some faith and determination I will continue.
I have alot to lose if I do want to get down to an actual goal weight. For me , I am chosing to break this into smaller goals and hurdles. 25 pounds at a time. I have lost 11 so far (but still 2 more days before it is a week) Also, today finally bumped up the activity. 15 minutes with cords, 30 on bike. want to do 3- 5 days a week.
Just as I pray for strength and courage for myself, I pray we all may find that to help us continue onto healthier paths. Good luck to all who struggle.

His birthday is tomorrow.But the...
Scales stayed the same today, which is good considering I ate two portions of cake yesterday. My daughter had made cake for a tea party and bought the remainders here. So I had cake for lunch and cake as a 4pm snack. And nothing else till dinner.Most of me feels better today, I just have a pain down my right side of my head where the ear is. But I think the sneezing and the antibiotics will sort...
