Spark People

I have gone back to using www.sparkpeople.com to track my food and exercise. I had used this site in the past but should have stuck with it. I’m going to do my best to stick with it. I need to lose this weight because it’s hard to stand or walk for very long because of all the weight on my joints especially my hips. The 20 pounds I lost when I was seeing someone to help me lose weight I have gained back and I believe it was because I was eating too many carbs and I wasn’t watching what I ate at least not as well as I should have been. So I am hoping Spark People will help me be more attentive to my goals and help me reach them. 130 pounds here I come!!! Even if I get there slowly.


Foods I Eat on my 900 Calorie Diet

It just dawned on my that I probably didn’t talk about what foods I’m eating on my died. I took pictures of almost everything I’m eat. If you have any questions please feel free to leave a message in the comments or email me at jansweightlossjourney@gmail.com

There were progresso soups that I was eating but my doctors told me to stop eating them due to salt content. Other things I eat are low-fat Greek yogurt, low fat cottage cheese, small amounts of cheese, celery, lettuce, and there may be a few other things but I can’t remember them right now. I do get to have my coffee so I’m happy about that. But I can’t fruit mostly because of insulin resistance reasons. Yes I do have insulin resistance so I may have to avoid some foods on this diet that you woudn’t have to. I also drink Pure Protein shakes that come in a can. They have several flavors. They are my breaksfast.

Take care!


Scared to Lose

Here I am 36 years old and weigh 286lbs. I’m on Weight Watchers but struggling to lose any weight. My husband and I had a long talk and I think I’m scared to be thin again. You see when I was 20 I was still living with my dad the last of 6 kids. My mothering having died just three years prior. It was just my dad and I for a while. I weighed 133lbs. My dad met this man on Paltalk and my dad went to Canada to visit him. Then my dad brought this man back to the house. My dad told me he was on probation but never told me what for. Before long my underwear went missing and he was taking photos of me all the time. I remember feeling real uncomfortable but didn’t know why. I later learned he was a pedophile. My fear increased and I felt i had nowhere to go. Now today I struggle to loser weight out of fear of being that thin again. What if the same thing happens, like someone takes a picture of me. I’m scared and need to work through therapy to get through this. I have therapy on friday so I will talk about it then.

Are you struggling to lose weight? Look through your life experiences and see if there is something standing in your way.

God bless you on your weight loss journey.
