My goal: Lose 63 lbs. to be healthier, feel good and look better. I wasn't really overweight until I got Hashimoto's thyroiditis around age 40. But, I have struggled with food since I was 12. My sister was chubby in high school and our dad would tell her to lose weight. Around this time that I started hoarding food. I went to potlucks and brought home desserts in baggies. When I went to eat one I would binge and eat all. In my early 20's, I did some local modeling and began dieting. I was always healthy and felt good at 130 lbs, but at my lowest I got down to 107 lbs. I kept telling myself I needed to lose just 4 more lbs. Well, I got married when I was 29 and the weight started slowly creeping up. I sat at a desk job for 34 years and at the last 15 years of my career I was working most weekends and close to 10 hours per day. Before this I was always active, running and lifting weights. My husband was also a body builder but 15 years ago he came down with an autoimmune disease and could no longer work. I retired early 2 years ago to spend more time with him, but also because my body was screaming to get my attention. I have difficulty sleeping because of chronic pain from MVA's. I also have acid reflux and sleep apnea. We walk our dog most days and I still do some light weigh lifting for mobility, but it's time for me to finally get this extra weight off. My biggest challenges are that I am hungry ALL THE TIME, and I LOVE sweets!!! Limiting calories has really only been what has worked for me in the past. I used to be able to lose 10 lbs a month but there is no way I can stick to 1200 calories. I'm currently reducing to 1800 calories and on that I feel I am starving. I noticed lots of people supporting each other on FS. I decided during this pandemic that it might be a good thing for me to join. If anyone has any tips on how to eat to not feel hungry all the time I would love to hear from you.
