performance: gaining 0.5 lb a week
I need to do something about my weight and I need to do it now. I have struggled with my weight for a long time, as have both my parents, my sister, and one of my brothers. I really started gaining weight when I began fertility treatments to have my first child. I gained 15 lbs while taking the medication, and another 30 when I finally got pregnant. Those 30 came off within 3 weeks, but that first 15 lbs remained. Then, we tried to get pregnant again and I went through the exact same thing. So, here I am more than 30 lbs overweight and now my doctor told me my cholesterol is getting high and she wants me to go on medication. I really don't want to do that. I want to learn to eat right. I do exercise about 3-4 times a week but really need to get my act together. I hope to gain some knowledge and encouragement on this site. It's nice (for me) to know that I am not the only person struggling with this issue. I want to lose about 40 lbs. Have been doing Atkins and Weight Watchers Core combination diet. A little discouraged at this point but more than anything I want to be successful this time. I can do it, we all can!
