Worth your weight?

So, here is the thing. Is any woman truly happy with her weight?  Sure, there are a few here, there and far in between but for the most part, we all have something we want to improve about our looks.  My true nemesis at this point and for most of my adult life has been my weight.  I am a yo-yo dieter.  I compulsively exercise, then quit cold turkey.  I cook all my meals at home, then go out to eat for most meals.  I lack consistency and I am addicted to food.

I have been doing some research on eating disorders and according to some websites, the way to beat food addiction is to cut out simple carbs and stay away from them for the rest of your life to achieve food sobriety.  I can't give up drinking is just way too much fun.  So, where does that leave me?  Well, I decided that I HAVE to do something. 

In the past nine years, I have gained over 50 lbs.  I need to lose about 80 lbs to be at my ideal weight and for a normal BMI, I need to lose about just under 70 lbs.  So, needless to say, my obese class I classification has GOT TO GO.  I have researched diets out the wazoo and downloaded a ton of exercise apps.  I am ready.  How do I make this into a lifestyle and sustainable change?

Well, here goes nothing.  The food plan: low carb lifestyle with cheats allowed for activities (trying to do calorie counting as well us an app) with friends/family and dates with the hubby.  The exercise plan: I recently started a jogging conditioning program (app) and basic workout routine.  Wish me luck!

Tata for now,
