I am a 27 year old, originally from Ghana, looking to finally lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.

I am determined to live a healthy life, and have finally admitted to myself that my key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and self-sabotage. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way.

I am a 27 year old, originally from Ghana, looking to finally lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.

I am determined to live a healthy life, and have finally admitted to myself that my key issues are emotional eating, consistency, and self-sabotage. I have a long way to go, but I am learning to really love myself for me, at any size, along the way.

My general goals are:

Learn to love my body at any size

View food as nourishment and fuel for my body, rather than as a proxy for comfort, entertainment and whatever else I use it for

Learn to tune out negative comments of detractors. The journey is for me, and not for others to define.

Find self-esteem from within/develop mental as well as physical strength

Finally, I got married on July 13, 2013! This new step definitely makes me want to live a healthy life for myself, my husband and our future family

Hello my fellow Champion in the Kitchen. My recipe for success is to pack a lunch most nights and actively move for 10 min/day.

Hello! Welcome to the Champions in the Kitchen Fall Challenge! The Summer Challenge was my first experience with this group. It was a lot of fun, interesting, and chocked full of support along the way by a great bunch of sparkers.

Today they've asked us to share our strategies for success. I'm sticking with what worked for me over the Summer Challenge, as I lost 5%, and lost weight each week, all while managing a record number of food events over the 8 weeks; the management of the food events was remarkable. For me, two things were key: I restricted my calories daily to 1200-1300 and stuck to my food plan of lean proteins, most of my carbs were fruits and vegetables, with 2 servings of bread over the course of the day. Food event days were less strict on food content, but I made myself stick to the 1200-1300 calories a day. Was it easy? No, but worth it. Patience is sooooo key.

What strategies work best for you?

All the best during the Challenge! Looking forward to doing this Challenge with you! emoticon
