Hello,

I am new to the sub and this is my first post. I am very happy I found this community since people IRL are not as supportive as I hoped.

I was 381lbs at my heaviest and lost a lot of weight (almost 200lbs) at one point but after an accident I gained some of it back. Fast forward to 2018, I was almost 300lbs again and miserable… I decided to do something about it so I started moving, it wasn’t much walking since I was heavy and tired all the time but I did my best.

Then I decide to change my eating habits, it was a slow process but I knew I had to do it if I wanted to be healthy (I have an autoimmune disorder and being overweight put me at risk for an early grave). Things that have worked for me:

  • Replacing starches for veggies, e.x. rice for quinoa and cauliflower. There are hundreds of recipes online to make them as delicious as the real thing.

  • I have a huge sweet tooth so looking for healthy dessert recipes (almond flour cookies, protein cupcakes, etc.) and eating just one or two after dinner helped cut those cravings.

  • Cooking most meals at home and understanding how important nutrition is. It is not just about cutting calories, it is about eating the right type of food.

  • Moving as much as I can, multitasking and staying active at work, even on days when I can’t go to the gym.

  • Taking supplements as needed, I had a blood panel done at my Dr’s office and he told me what nutrients and vitamins I was lacking. Every morning I take supplements before breakfast and it has helped my energy levels tremendously. (I just get mine at the pharmacy, nothing fancy).

I know it is not anything revolutionary but I hope it can help someone.
