Lanae and the grand children at the Pumpkin Patch Oct. 2008
I was a Master Yo-Yo Dieter...You name it, I've tried it...
For the last 15 years I have been on so many diets that it would take pages to post them all. Many of the "latest miracle" weight loss gimmicks were so expensive that I would become a consultant so that I could purchase the products at a reduced price. I have spent much $$$ on products from The Cookie Diet, Eola, Shaklee, and on and on. I have used many diet pills both Rx and OTC's. My cabinet probably has at least a dozen fat blockers, herbals, Metabo-everything. I spent a ton on L.A. Weight Loss about 3 years ago. I paid for a year of Curves about 4 years ago. I have been paying for my membership at Corey Everson for the last 21 months, I've been once.
I finally tipped the scale at 180 in Nov. 2008. That's a lot at 4'11"...I looked like my late Grand-mother, a roly-poly...
My daughter, VESSELOFHONOUR, asked me in Nov. to check into Resolutions Weightloss and Wellness Center. I went to their web-site and liked what I saw, so I made us both an appointment. This program does not require a contract, so that was of interest. I finally went in and got hooked up on Nov. 24, 2008. They ran an EKG and Complete bloodwork on the first visit. I am taking an appetite suppressant and Calcium Pyruvate after lunch and dinner. I am also on low carbs.
I waited until after Thanksgiving before getting started. My official start date was Dec. 1, 2008. I have lost 15 pounds so far (Jan. 8, 2009)
I have started to exercise this week. Taking it one day at a time. It took me several years to accumulate this baggage so I know that it will take a few months of hard work and dedication to accomplish my healthy self.
My daughter VESSELOFHONOUR is on the journey with me ,so we motivate each other. As a matter of fact our spouses and children are doing the "Lifestyle Change" with us.
SparkPeople has been such an inspiration. So much information and wonderful buddies to help each other. We are truely blessed!!
I will continue to post my journey...
~~Two months have gone by since I began this journey. It has been a great time for me. I am very happy with my progress so far. Nice to have comments like" You're looking good," or from a teenager, "Sister Phyliss is shrinking."
I live in Panama City, Fl, known for it's "World's Most Beautiful Beaches." I plan to enjoy this beautiful place that God has given us this summer. I usually take the kids and I am the goofy one walking on the beach with my capris on. My background picture was taken at PC Beach last week. I swiped it from my cousin's FaceBook. Thank's Sonia!
I have an inground swimming pool in my back yard and I only keep it clean and ready for others to enjoy. Haven't been in it in 5-6 years. Not this year! I AM DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL that sits on the deck missing out on the fun with my family. I have kept busy preparing food, drinks, etc and cleaning up so I didn't have time to use the pool. Just an excuse not to have to humiliate myself by putting on a swimsuit......
My short term goal is to loose 2 pounds a week.
Long term goal to become fit and healthy.
Joined Resolutions Weightloss & Wellness Center!
