A Story of a Journey ... Just cold turkey

I began my original journey in March 2009 weighing 380#. I knew that I had been on so many "diet plans" in my life that I finally threw it all out the window and just began using a "portion control with a little extra protein and a little less sodium" and that is how I arrived to where I am today. I have had no surgeries, pills, shots, hypnosis, anything....only eating less! I don't count anything, calories, carbs, points, etc. I realize, ...
A Story of a Journey ... Just cold turkey

I began my original journey in March 2009 weighing 380#. I knew that I had been on so many "diet plans" in my life that I finally threw it all out the window and just began using a "portion control with a little extra protein and a little less sodium" and that is how I arrived to where I am today. I have had no surgeries, pills, shots, hypnosis, anything....only eating less! I don't count anything, calories, carbs, points, etc. I realize, that now, they haven't and don't work for me. My style is.....I eat what is prepared at any time or any where......I just don't eat all of it! I have numerous disabilities that leave me unable to exercise only minimally. My doctor's tried me on a new medication for one of my issues which caused me to gain 42# back, but since then she has stopped that one and I'm on my road back down from there. I will not change "my journey style" as it works for me. I don't know how far down I will lose, but I leave it in God's hands.

THANKS FOR READING MY WHINY BLOG. DH HAS ALL THE THINGS YOU DESCRIBED PLUS LOTS OF ANXIETY FOR SOME REASON. SO I TRY TO KEEP HIS BUSY DOING LITTLE THINGS. THE MORE THINGS HE HAS TO DO, THE LESS TIME HE SPENDS THINKING ABOUT WHAT WAS. AND MY HUSBAND HAS HAD THE SAME JOB FOR OVER 50 YEARS!

“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but creatures of emotion.”— Dale Carnegie

People need to feel valued and loved. I pray this is how I make my friends feel.
