Current Weight:(30 Oct 14) 285.4 lb
Goal Weight:250.0 lb
following: hoosier436's own diet
performance: gaining 0.9 lb a week

Been "fat" for my entire life, so it seems. I have tried dieting several times before- but gave up, and felt like a failure.. yeah, i feel like my middle name is Failure. I battle depression, working for a fast food joint as a supervisor (yeah, I am 55 yrs old-- and working as a supervisor.. when I graduated from High School, this is not what I expected to be at)..
I need to loose a ton of weight, seems hopeless... came bout my doctor gave me a scare back in April 2014. This is a major nightmare for me, the fearing that I will fail at this as well...
Not a pretty sight.. that I am painting.. I guess I am too honest...

I'm going to be hungry
Yes, ok I am going to say life style change instead of dieting, stinks... you do not have the freedom to eat what you want when you want. Yesterday was on those days I wanted to throw in the towel.. I missed hamburgers, french fries, pizza,Little Debbie's swiss cakes.. I MISS THEM!

But, is it worth the risk of a heart attack, or having diabetes-- which is greater pull fear of heart attacks, or diabetes, or the like, or the love of fatty unhealthy foods? Will it be worth it? Well yes it will...

I had a great feeling of walking in stores without the use of a cart to support me, it is a great feeling to walk up the stairs like a normal person, instead of one step at a time.. it is a good feeling for the first time in over 8 years to put on a 3x jacket and zip it up and it fits!! The person that wrote, I also think that once a person can see the results of their diet- that gives them a huge motivation to keep going..." I totally agree with this statement... well put...

A friend of mine asked me on facebook what was my secret for my weight loss.. I wrote what I felt like a page and a half of things that I do daily.. she said "That is too much work!" I thought, yeah it is-- but I am over 40 lbs lighter than what I was in April.. I got a long ways to go before I even see the "finish line" of my weight goal.. BUT it will never really end.. I have to realize that...

Hang in there, it will be worth it..
