following: Kathy's Low Carb High Protein
performance: gaining 14.7 lb a week
Hi, Im a 44 yr old mother of 4 (2 mine and 2 stepkids). I have several health issues including asthma, chronic sinusitis, food and environmental allergies, sleep apnea, GERD, Goiter, etc, etc. I need to loose 130 lbs to get to my goal and I want to use a Low Carb High Protein plan to do it. I have tried this before and people talk me out of it saying low carb isn't healthy. Well, I am finally putting my foot down and doing it anyway. I am allergic to wheat and milk and my plan eliminates both. I feel better on this plan and I am doing it for life not just a temp fix. I also just found out that I am estrogen dominant, I have adrenal exhaustion and I am clinically hypothyroid. I need all the help I can get. I am also a very positive person and will be happy to offer encouragement and help to anyone who needs it. We are all in this together.
I like the way people have added thier goals here so I have decided to do the same:
Goal #1 240 lbs (first 25 lbs lost)Can reduce CPAP pressure from 9 to 7
Goal #2 215 lbs (50 lbs lost) can reduce CPAP pressure from 7 to 5
Goal #3 190 lbs (75 lbs lost) Can get OFF CPAP for good. Never needed it at this weight. This is also what I weighed at my 2nd wedding.
Goal #4 165 lbs (100 lbs lost) Also what I weighed b4 hysterectomy and after the birth of my 2 kids. I will have my health back 90% when I get here.
Goal #5 Final 130 to 135 lbs. (130 to 135 lbs lost) This is what I weighed at my best health. This was also after my first child was born so I know I can get there.
