I'm 33, a licensed counselor in a community mental health center for 7 years. I'm also working on 2 certifications now- DBT therapist for adults and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for kids. I LOVE to learn :-)

I've been overweight 90% of my life, there was a 6 month period of time where I was "thin" and haven't seen it since. Trying to find it again :) I really struggle with exercise.

NEVER discourage ANYONE
who CONTINUALLY makes PROGRESS
no matter HOW slow.

- - PLATO - -


Always remember that a step in the RIGHT direction, no matter HOW small, is STILL a step in the RIGHT direction! Don't be discouraged by SLOW progress for progress is progress no matter it's speed! As long as you focus each day on getting better & on moving forward, you will continually be moving in the direction of CHANGE, in the direction of HOPE & in the direction of SUCCESS! Each day brings reason to CELEBRATE!!! Choose to LIVE in the MOMENT!!! Choose to APPRECIATE each & every step that brings you closer to the BIG goal! YOU are STRONG, you are CAPABLE & you are DOING this & THAT is ALL that matters!!!

Stay Positive,

Jes

Congrats on the 4 pounds. I was just reading about the carb cycling I haven't read the book I was just wondering if it was working for anyone I see that it is. I would like to give it a try.
