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.

    Don't think about what can happen in a month or year from now. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you.

    Here is a New Daily Mantra!! Post it Where you Can see it....

    Pound by pound, inch by inch, choice by choice We will become healthy and fit!
    We struggle, but we grow. We fall, We will get up. Even amid adversity, We keep moving towards our goal weight.
    Today our portion size is shrinking and so is our waistlines.
    Today we are beautiful, We are fit, We are healthy; and more so every day!
    Today We are making the right choices and the right changes to have the body We want!

    Thanks for stopping by!! emoticon
