The question mark is because I question whether I can do it. I joined Pound for Pound on The Biggest Loser. I know I should start with a more positive attitude, but I have been on this fight for a very long time. There are those who began the fight in childhood,I did not. I was a thin child. I was too thin and each meal a struggle to eat,to put on weight. Weight gain was not a problem until the birth of my last child, thirty -nine years ago. I joined TOPS[ Take Off Pounds Sensibly]. My weight has gone up and down. I reached my goal and then I went lower and lower. I went to the doctor and found out I had severe Osteoporosis. She said that I must put on weight, and do not fall. I put on the weight, up to my goal and then I sailed on and on. I put on ten pounds sense I have moved, and that has only been two years.
My daughter also has a weight problem and we have been watching The Biggest Loser, and I might say eating a ice cream sandwich while we watch. I don't think we could get on the show because I only have to lose twenty-six pounds. That does not seem like a lot, but it is getting more and more not less and less. I am having more and more trouble doing activity. I have high blood pressure and high cholesterol controlled by medicine.
What I started to say is that my daughter and I have begun to try to become more healthy. We went shopping together for a weeks worth of food for suggested diet meals. We do not cook but open packages and microwave. We met the challenge and bought real food[ not canned or packaged]. I am sure if any one was watching we appeared to be real dummies, which we were. We made our first meal. I am not sure we did it correctly but it was very good. Our next problem is portion control. We made a chili with lean ground beef,elbow macaroni, tomatoes,tomato soup, onions,peppers,beans and chili powder. We picked that because it seemed less complicated. I had a bowl and it seemed like too much food.
Now I have to get on my tread mill and do some walking.
