I started my diet in december of 2009 once I found out that i was diabetic. They started me on medication but it was making me sick. I chose to follow a doctors diet of 1500 calories with low carbs and no sugar. It was difficult and aganizing I love sugar and to not be able to eat it drove me insane. But I relized that if I didnt i wouldn't be around for my kids.
I relized as i was progressing though the diet, counting cal's when shopping, weighing everything I put in my mouth on scales, and seeing that a serving size was a hell of alot smaller than what i was eating, that I really was just eating what ever i wanted. I also soon relized that i had to have a schedual for eating, never really thought of that one before. (Things were so much easier when i was a teenager :)
So i had to relearn how to eat and when to eat, how to get off my ass and work out and when i could rest and i progressed well loosing going from 234lb to 200lb by April.

But I decided that I wanted to quit smoking, and I did that starting April 21. I have been smokless since then and i gained weight. I felt i needed to eat just a tiny bit more that 1500 cals and the weight started going back on. I got depressed and lethargic, not working out anymore, and more weight went on. Now once again I am at 218lb. I am amazed at how fast and easy it is to put on weight than to take it off. Im stuck in a rut of depression, and im climbing out slowly. I started today to get myself back on track, working out for 2 hrs, keeping the withdraws and bay and trying not to sit down too much. I hope Monday will be better. I will work harder.
