In January of 2014 I started working to change my eating habits to healthier ones. To do this I had to learn how to cook. This has proven challenging as I am cooking for one.
I started with a site that taught me to meal plan. I had already used the American Heart Association diet plan, so I incorporated it into the meal plan they offered for Heart Health.
I lost 12 pounds without really trying except to watch my calories. In July I went on a two week binge and gained 4 pounds back.
That is when I decided enough was enough. I went online looking for a support group and discovered I joined on 7/29 and found the site and people amazing.
Update 12/18/15.
I have lost 55 pounds while on SparkPeople and a total of 62.2 since starting my journey to lose weight. I have also gone down four dress sizes.
