Massworkingmom: Our bodies are so different, what works for one person does not work for another. We are unique but that is also what causes stress. When I see others loosing (my husband) and I am eating less than he is, it is frustrating! I know age is a factor in metabolism so I just have to be content with what my body is capable of doing and not compare with others. Non-scale victories also keep me going. Even if the scale does not budge, do my clothes fit differently, do I have more energy, am I sleeping better are things I can look at. We are all in this fight together to bring our bodies under control. Thanks for sharing your struggles so we can pray for you. ~ Linda

I'm Liz. I know the struggle. I am having a lot of medical problems right now. My GI system is messed up. Nothing is digesting. My blood sugar is way out of control. I had some blood work done and need to see a GI doctor, rheumatologist and cardiologist. My primary care wants me on insulin as the Jardiance I am taking isn't helping. My treadmill broke and I can't get my husband to look at it and it takes up a lot of room so It's hard to do anything else. I am always exhausted. My ANA titer test is positive. I just don't feel well and my husband keeps telling me I need to take him places or pick him up, etc. He is very selfish and doesn't think of what everything is doing to me. He had been out of work since November 2, 2018. He finally got a job July 1st. It's a good job but the insurance is horrible. It's a high deductible plan and is going to cost us a lot. We need it though. So much stress, nausea. I'm hanging in there with God's help. He is always there for us. I know it's hard. Keep trying and don't give up. Liz

Massworkingmom- Keep at it!. Also, can you just start walking around your yard? Maybe start with once around the back yard, or if the yard is uneven, a few steps down the sidewalk and back? Slowly walk more as you can?

I have been tracking now for 37 days. My goal for the first month was to just track every day and to get down to eating the top of my calorie limit. I did achieve that goal, but it was disheartening to step on a scale and see no progress. The scale might be broken and I really use my doctor's office as the official weight. So now, for this month, my goal is to get my system down to 100 calories less than the top calorie intake rage. Oh Lord, is my body fighting with me. Its hungry and tired. Yesterday, it was hard to concentrate because I was tired. I can also see mentally, I am fighting off discouragement. There is this war going on inside of me just to eat 100 less calories. My calorie range is 1540 to 1890. My 3 day moving average is 1691. My weighted 3 day moving average is 1647. The goal is to stay in the 1700 calorie range or less. I have had some days where I am really under and I am paying for it. And as much as I need to start exercising, I am weary of trying to change too much at one time. It takes time to track and manage your food properly and I want to be sucessful in a few things before I add more on. Plus, I am so heavy that I am afraid if I exert myself too much initially, I will injure myself. As I am older now, it takes longer to heal and could side line me much longer. So I am hanging in there...its just draining.
