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.

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.
