This is chapter 2 of my FS bio. I joined FS in July 2010, and I was successfully following the low-glycemic diet, lost 50 pounds and felt and looked great. I was trying for another 50 pounds. And then the bottom dropped out of my life -- my Mom's ovarian cancer came back with a vengeance, and from June 2011 to June 2012, I took care of her, and then spent most of the next year settling her estate and emptying and selling her house. There were days when it got to be 5:00 and all I'd eaten was a couple of donuts. Then I'd eat dinner out and stuff myself with all the wrong food because I was famished and depressed. The result was to be expected: I gained back a lot of the weight I'd lost, how much I don't really know because I haven't had the courage to get on a scale.
So I'm starting over again. What else can I do?
Too early to set goals, but will do that once I weigh in at the end of August.
When I'm not counting calories on Fat Secret, I'm a marketing/communications specialist working with not-for-profit organizations. I'm an enthusiastic gardener and theater goer, and play mom to two Shelties, an 8-year-old rescued girl, Hermione, and an 8-month-old puppy, Carson.
Update July 8, 2014 -- I think I really am back now. Will be doing my food diary and plan to get weighed the beginning of next month so as to have the most encouraging starting weight possible!
