I went to Yellowstone for vacation in July and when I got home I had just had it with being overweight. It kind of came to a head after being overweight for the last 15 yrs. I kept creeping up higher and higher and I have not felt great for quite a few years. The health problems kept coming and I tried to just say for the last few yrs I think something is just wrong with me. Well after vacation I had it like I said and finally gave in and admitted to myself that being lazy and 47 and eating whatever I felt like for the last 40yrs was my problem and not something else. I was told I need hip replacements and refuse to do that for as long as possible too. I didn't go on a diet but I decided to switch to clean eating and started back to the gym. Cutting out allot of carbs and junk food. I started eating healthy and do a fasting period of 12 hrs. I stop eating anything at 7:30 pm and don't eat breakfast until 7:30 - 7:45 am. For the first time in 15yrs I'm under 230lbs. Last weigh in was 223 after about 46 days and I feel better than I have in 15 yrs. My daughter had never seen me under 235lbs. I looked at pictures from vacation and felt ashamed and weighed in at 256 lbs. I know this is way off topic but I just wanted to share with my forum family here. If any of you are feeling the same way do what I did and quit waiting to get your life back. I have a long way to go. But I have hope and I feel allot better.
