In my 20's I was up and down the scale from 180-220. Spent years over 300 pounds terrified. I want to live a long and happy life. Like most people, I am a good person who works hard at her career. I want marriage and children. I know I need to be healthy to raise a healthy family. but it is a daily struggle and true battle.
It's more than weight; it is education. Body physiology education! Pancreatic reactions to sugar! Wow that was fascinating to learn about and a bit shocking when I think back to all the sugar I unknowingly put in my body. Wow, no wonder! A friend of mine made it look so easy over this past year.....slow and steady determination she said. So, this is the beginning of a change overall for me. I wake up everyday facing myself, not ignoring it, even if the scale goes up.
I'm so motivated by the other's on this site as well. It's good to be part of a community of like minds and like goals. It's my daily retreat and honest encouragement.
Before the Holidays of 2014 I was committed to Atkins because I had lost a lot of weight before on it, then I gained it all back. I just kept telling myself it works, it works just refocus....but it wasn't working anymore for some reason. I think now it's because Atkins reintroduces Carbs way too soon before the body can heal its insulin resistance. I had to find another way. I researched all over the internet, starting ready studies by leading Biochemists around the world on Obesity and learned a lot about Ketogenic diets...Low Carb/High Fat. I knew it was what I needed to cut my sugar cravings and consistently lose weight. It was hard but I started a new year with a new diet and new inner resolve.
