taking a break
I don't agree with breaks - I have been on diets all my life and have come to realize that when you are considering taking a break - you are setting yourself up for failure. What usually happens on these breaks? You eat all the stuff that you have worked so hard on not eating or portion controlling. It is really hard to bounce back from that. Just my opinion. Normally I wouldn't post a response to this - but this is a lifetime change - something you will always have to do - when you lose weight and want to maintain you have to ALWAYS monitor - never just let go.

What was the catalyst that made you decide to lose weight?
I am like most of you with the same reasons to lose weight. I have been to amusement parks and had to exit the ride because I am too big for the restraints to hold me in. ( I was motified - but at the time still didn't do anything about it). I am ALWAYS the largest person in the room. I feel like all eyes are on me - watching me eat, wondering why I let myself get this way. I also until recently could not put my socks on or tie my shoes without my husbands help - it kills me to have to ask and times I would rather just wear my slip on shoes in the pouring rain to work rather than have to ask him. BUT, this is improving with every pound that I lose. The "waking moment for me" is what I have in my bio - I had back surgery in May because of a herinated disk that was pinching on the nerve going down my leg. Back surgery because my back just CANNOT support my weight anymore. While I was in surgery - my doctor spoke to my husband and one of my best friends and told them that I HAD to lose around 100 pounds and should consider weightloss surgery or my back along with my extremely high blood pressure would never get better. I was humilated that he told them I was SO FAT, BIG, OBESE - I know they know I am OVERWEIGHT( the term like better)- but it is like I didn't acknowledge they knew - they didn't look at me that way, they didn't care what I weighed or what I looked like. BUT, because of this horrific moment I had when my husband told me this - I knew it was time for a change - so I let my body heal, and now I am working on what needs to be done and when I go back to him next year for my check-up I will show him I am smarter than he thinks - I am aware of my "problem" and I can do this with learning and bettering my knowledge of diet and nutrition and that I do not need a surgery for this...Especially after I HATED having to have back surgery.
