Yo Yo Down

I've gained and lost the same 50ish pounds a few times since 1999. Right now I'm on an upswing, and it's really bothering me.

I don't care so much about how I look, really I don't care how anyone looks. But, I do care that my clothes don't fit, and I feel the excess weight is exacerbating my fibro symptoms. Also, it's just a bunch of extra me I'll be hauling for 30 miles when I do my Challenge Walk.

So, I've decided to try to lose some weight before I go. I started about a month ago, and I've lost 14 pounds so far. There's a LOT to go, but I feel good that I'm going in the right direction :-)

To do that, I've had to cut my calories drastically (darn metabolism) even with all the walking I'm doing. And, since our trip to Iowa, I'm back on the Diet Coke and I don't even care! When you're playing with 1000-1200 calories a day, a can (or more) of 0 calorie frosty goodness is awfully appealing.

Anyway, that's what's up, or down I guess, with me...

you go girl! luv ya, no matter what. but you being happy is what matters most.
It is hard to keep it off, just keep trying you'll do it!
It's amazing how much better I started to feel once I lost a bunch of weight. Even a little can make a difference. 14 pounds is a great start - keep going, I know you can do it!
Just keep working at it. Nothing good in life is easy.
YAY JEN!!! You rock girl! :)
Way to go, Jen! I'm down almost 14 lbs. since 1/7 (now I keep losing and gaining the same 2 lbs), and yes, I rely on Diet Coke for a treat!

Awesome job!!! You go girl!

I will share a zero calorie anytime
