I tend to yo-yo diet. I get up to over 160 and I start to panic. I'm 5'9" so I can carry the weight without *looking fat*. but my clothes don't fit. I have sizes 18.104.22.168 and even some 12s...
When I got to 163 last fall, my sister and I went on a diet and we both lost 10 pounds. Over the holidays I gained it all back. Now, for almost a month, I have been eating salads with baked chicken, cut of soda, cut out alcohol ( a huge trigger to my depression and suicide attempts ) avoid cereals and snack food. Lots of water. Usually one meal a day at night. Avoid eating out ( due to the lack of healthy choices and financial situation ). Happy to report I've lost that 10 pounds yet again and hope this time with a little exercise I can keep it off. I have yoga videos, Hip Hop Abs (;-))
and many others. Each day I think I will exercise but the energy is not there and I put it off yet another day.
Not working - I just want to stay on the couch and watch TV or sleep.
Energy is so low...
