i need some diet tips. after getting off that depo shot, i can't wait to loose weight! exercising is a bit hard for me. i have a bulging disc in my lower back. L4. even walking more than an hour or being on my feet too long gets it hurting. i try and baby my back because my insurance is not gonna help me until i'm half dead. anyway, i stopped drinking regular soft drinks about 4 months ago. now i only drink diet. and i really don't eat alot. i may eat 2 small meals a day. and thats not even trying not to eat. thats just my appetite. i'm been up since 6:30 this morning. had 2 cups of coffee. and i'm not hungry at 11:30 am. i did have a glass of orange juice. i have lost 10 pounds since december. i am currently a size 18. at five foot five. it's sooooo depressing. does anybody think the weight may slowly come off all by itself? i also think, my back would not hurt so much if i were thinner. i wont take diet pills. 3 years ago, i lost some of my depo fat but, i starved myself on about 500 calories a day and crazy exercising.( which i can't do now.) i got down to a 12. but it all came back. i've never been a fat person. anybody got any ideas? stories to tell about your own victory over fat? i really need a feeling of hope.
