I am a mother of 2 grown children. My daughter just celebrated her 1 year wedding anniversary and is a Social Worker in California. My son is in college getting his degree in Human Resources. I was remarried on 2007 and just celebrated my 3 year anniversary with my wonderful husband!
I was always a skinny kid and adult until I reached my 30's. Then it seems like I've been yoyo dieting ever since. I was on Atkins years ago and it worked but then little by little I started adding carbs back in and all my cravings returned and I gained all my weight back, plus some. I am determined to do it this time and stick to it! I feel I am very carb sensitive so I really need to be careful. I get very bloated and sluggish when I eat them and as soon as I start with something sweet, even if it's low carb I start craving again. So I am really going to try and stay away from those types of food this time around.
I am a registered nurse and I do private duty nursing with disabled children. I love this job. I worked in a hospital for 26 years and it's very stressful so this is a nice change of pace. Low key, no stress but can get very boring at times so eating becomes a problem. Sometimes to stay awake I feel like I need to eat something. This will be one of my big challenges.
Even though I don't have a tremendous amount of weight to lose it's still a struggle. I know I feel 100 percent better when I eat low carb so I hope that is enough motivation for me to stick with it this time around!
