Hey Jill / Marianne
Warmest welcome to you both.
Marianne – I totally understand about failed diets and that your mindset has already set you up to fail yet againso why bother?
The reason I need to do this is to live a heathy life for me and also for my family. And maybe that is also the same reason for you too. Just take it one day at the time or in my case one meal at the time!
Jill – well hello – so please you have jumped on as well – especailly you had success within 4 weeks of doing the BSD back in May 2016 – what a fabulous result. 20 lbs. WOW in just 4 weeks. There is hope for me and my family. You must have been so perfect. Thar will be my downfall – when I am good – I am very good.. when I am bad… oh boy am I bad. Then beat myself up … I am sure you know how the rest goes….
My hubby had suffered from heart failure which was cause mainly from drinking – he is an alocholic. You would have thought that his health issues would finally make him sit up and do something about it… but he struggles with the drink. He just been on a two week binge. Stop drinking Friday as he was starting to have problems breathing again. He has been dry for 3 full days. How long will it last? No idea. Maybe losing weight and getting energy back will help him. He is such a good person and lovable when sober, generous, funny, smart, loyal, and hard working. He just struggles with drink in the same way I struggle with food. As to your comment about men having no problem sticking to the diet… my hubby is the same with food.. WHY? Because maybe we have done the hard work. The shopping and planing ! All they have to do is eat it.
My son, 23, just started he first job – and is over weight by 3 stones so it will help him too. He is keen to support me but he also loves his food. ( he only been on the BSD for one day and is thinking about BurgerKing! ) I know my son will start looking up food and recipes to have for more control on what to eat as so far the food I prepare is been ok ish
For me , I had a fright, a warning, a very minor stroke, so I need to bring my Blood sugar levels down as well as my blood pressure. I need to turn this round. I want to turn it round.
So my goal is to get to Christmas 21 lbs lighter
That is enough for now
Have a fabulous day
