I joined Spark People one week ago on February 19, 2018. I weighed 354 pounds when I started. My heaviest weight was 376.7 I have been up and down. My body has had it's years of abuse since I was a child. I am finally realizing that I need to take better care of myself. I want my joints to stop hurting, want to move better, not be out of breath, be able to do fun activities with my man, fit into chairs and amusement park rides. I am tired of feeling like a shut in. My weight has made me depressed, tired, lazy and on pre diabetic and high blood pressure medicines. I am a compulsive eater, feel unattractive, discussed with myself and friendless. I am a prisoner in this body screaming to get out. I have to lose to save myself. I am on my way, but it is a bumpy road. Yesterday I ordered a treadmill to start exercising. Any motivational inspirations will be appreciated. Thank you.

Member Since: 2/13/2018

Fitness Minutes: 9,513

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight so I am healthy and able to do things without pain.


My Program:
I started Intermittent Fasting on April 18th. I am fasting for 16 hours and eating in 8 hours. I am trying to stick to 3 carbs per meal, 3 meals a day, eating lots of vegetables and having no snacks. The first week I lost 8 pounds.

I stopped doing the Intermittent fasting and decided to eat 1600 calories or less, drink 8 glasses of water and track my food. I do some exercise, but as of this point not a lot. I am losing slowly but steady unless I go on a binge.

    emoticon EXERCISE IS THE BEST MEDICINE emoticon

    When it comes to reducing your risk of heart disease, exercise can be as effective as medication, according to Harvard Medical School. How exciting is that?! We are blessed to live in an age where there are so many medications available for many illnesses and maladies that were not available before. But several of the medications have side effects and are not easy to take. The good news is that exercise has the ability to keep you from developing diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, many forms of cancer and can reduce your risk of heart disease. Not only will working out and being active help you not get these diseases, it will also increase your quality of life, your energy and your general outlook. So rather than reaching for medicine, reach for your workout shoes instead. In many cases, exercise is the BEST medicine!

    emoticon CELEBRATE HEART MONTH! emoticon

    February is heart awareness month with heart disease being the number one killer of Americans. Approximately 632,00 Americans die each year which means one out of every four disease related deaths in the US are attributed to heart disease. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 785,000 Americans have their first heart attack each year with an additional 470,000 experiencing a recurrent heart attack. That equals a staggering 1,255,000 Americans each year falling prey to a heart attack. According for the CDC approximately 4 out of every 10 people who have heart disease are also inactive. It is time to get moving!
