I was a Diabetic two years ago. I weighed 300 lbs. I joined Weight Watchers to try to lose the weight. All I did was learn about calculating my points. In time, I figured out the formula behinds the points calculation and was able to figure out the points value of foods in my head. In ISTJ fashion, I followed strict eating regiments for about a year and a half, with the rare eating whatever I wanted.
Earlier this year, my weight loss started slowing down, and then in May, I hit the 200 lb mark. Then it went downhill from there. I stopped caring about losing and just started doing whatever. So, I started maintaining....for a long time. I joined a gym in August, and went to it for a month. Then something personal cropped up and I stopped, even though I'm still paying for it. I'm still following weight watchers, but aside from what my normal regiment is, I'm eating whatever I want probably once or twice a week now. It's extra hard with the holidays because everything I want to eat is basically at my fingertips.
I was 206 this morning, and it really bothered me, but bleh. I'm 5'9". It's hard to get myself to go back to losing. The Diabetes is gone and now I just want to lose the weight, but I can't motivate myself to do what's required.
