Well I had a small setback. I relapsed on alcohol for about 3 weeks, and so not only was I getting all the extra calories from alcohol, I was eating lousy - mostly carbs, and no exercise.

So I gained back 7 lbs.

but since stopping drinking and starting to eat healthy again I'm down 2 lbs to 203. Really want to get below 200 again.

And I need to start walking again.

Had a good meeting with my dietitian yesterday. She's happy I'm back on track and wants me to keep a food log, and bring it in to show her when I see her again in a month.

She says her first goal for me, is to get me down to 190 lbs which is apparently the point that my health related risks drop. It would also move me out of the obese into the overweight category on the BMI. Then we'll talk about how low I want to go.

So I'm feeling pretty good.

Congrats. You should be real proud of yourself!

One of our local grocery stores with a drug store has a dietitian in a couple of days a week that anyone can set up an appointment with for free. I've been kicking around the idea of setting up an appointment but haven't yet.

htoun,
If you can see a dietitian for free, I say go for it. I find mine very helpful. She was especially helpful in the beginning in setting calorie targets, and explaining what real portion sizes were really - I found out I was actually eating two or three servings of most things.

split, I admire your motivation. I think that is so very cool about ordering your food and having it delivered. I had never heard of such a thing but from what people are telling me they do that in some places in the lower states as well.

Well down to 201 as of today. It's painfully slow. I've been keeping a food diary, that I'll take in to show my dietitian when I see her next in a couple of weeks, and hopefully she'll have some tips on how I can jump start my weight loss.

And I'm still trying to work up the motivation to exercise.

As of this morning, back down to 198! Yay so happy to be back under 200 lbs. Now just have to watch my eating so I don't put the weight back on.

It's obvious from my food diary, that I'm not eating any where enough fruits and veg. Really need to work on that, but it's hard.
