Choose your hard - this is my inspiration. Hard is being overweight; hard is being sick; hard is being in pain. Exercise and healthy eating is easy in comparison!

It's been about 2 years since I've checked in. I gained 30 pounds in the last two years. I've also been on Long Term disability from work for 2 years. Since I still can't work, they let me go 3 days ago. But God is SO GOOD! Yesterday I was awarded SSDI, and a week ago was notified I will keep the Insurance LTD.

I am grateful for God's love, my life, my family and friends and have every reason to keep on hoping for the future.

I have a couple of autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid Disease (RA) and Sjogren's Syndrome (SS)). Also Fibromyalgia, Diabetes T2, Hypoglycemia, Metabolic Syndrome, Reactive Hypoglycemia, Dysautonomia, Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica, PID-IGg Sub 1,3 ++++ many other conditions

My Goals:
My current goal is to eat according to my high protien plan for 30 days straight. I'm expecting to lose 5-10 pounds per month, but pounds are not the focus. I am aiming for a healthy relationship with food. My final weight goal is 145 pounds.

My Program:
I will celebrate ?? each day I stick to the plan, ?? each time I see a loss on the scale, and ?? when I lose inches.

My plan includes:
- Asking God to help me stay on my plan every morning
- Planning my food the night before
- journal or blog daily
- reaching out to others
- practice mindfulness to:
Reduce stress
Focus on the important things in life
Improve clarity

- eliminate added sugar
- eat whole foods

The food plan is a high protein, low carb following the template:

Breakfast: 4P + 1ST + 1 FR
Snack: (1P or 1F) + (1 ST or 1V or 1D)
Lunch: 4P + 4V + 3F
Snack: (1P or 1F) + (1 ST or 1V or 1D)
Dinner: 3P + 4V + 3F

P = protein
V = Vegetable (nonstarchy)
ST = Starch/Grain
FR = Fruit
D = Dairy
F = Fat

- tracking inches
- weighing once a month

Personal Information:
My name is Jill and I live in Alabama. I have a wonderful husband and two young adult children, a new son-in-law, two mini-dachshunds, and a sweet tabby cat. They all bring me joy and inspiration to get healthy.
