Heather's Journey

Hi everyone. My name is Heather. I am a 38yo mom of 3 from Northwest CT. I am a hospice visiting nurse and my Hubs is a truck driver.

I began my journey today, when I woke up. I am weighing in at 256.6 although I believe that to be inaccurate. My last weight was about 264 in October.

I feel awful. My body hurts. My bones hurt. My hips and my shoulders hurt.

I was diagnosed with PCOS and type 2 diabetes in June and I have been very inconsistent taking my meds.

I realize how awful this sounds but somehow putting this in writing is making me more accountable.

I want to be healthy. I CRAVE it.

Because of my diagnosis i have decided to eat low carb. I firmly believe in the more whole the foods, the better it is for you, so that's my game plan!

I am ready to begin the rest of my life and I am ready to commit.

I look forward to being a regular poster and supporting each of you!

Ok so here is my food for today. I had a poorly planned day as I ended up taking a 5 hour drive that I wasn't planning on.

B: egg white omelet w/ 1/2 slice of American, 2 slices of thick cut bacon (1)
L: romaine with leftover rib eye, parm chz sprinkles, cucumber ranch dsg (6)
S: rotisserie chicken breast w/ large salad & zesty Italian dsg (5)

Snacks: not sure yet. I made some chicken dip, I may have that with celery sticks.

I know I need to increase my fat and maybe my carbs too...
