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, ...
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.

THANKS FOR READING MY BLOG. IT ISN'T A SKIN SLIP. IT WAS A DEEP CUT REQUIRING A PLASTIC SURGEON TO STITCH BOTH THE MUSCLE AND THE OUTSIDE OF THE CUT. IT ALMOST LOOKED LIKE SHE HAD BEEN ATTACKED BY A KNIFE. I KNOW THAT SOUNDS DRAMATIC BUT I SEARCHED ALL HER DRAWERS AND CUPBOARDS AND FOUND NOTHING. THE ONLY BLOOD WAS RIGHT ON THE CARPETING WHERE SHE SAT AND SHE DOES NOT REMEMBER HOW SHE GOT DOWN THERE. IF SOMEONE HURT HER WHILE SHE WAS SLEEPING, I WILL FIND THEM AND THEY WILL REGRET IT - BELIEVE ME. emoticon

Plants seeds of expectation in your mind; culivate thoughts that anticipate achievement. Believe in yourself as being capable of overcoming all obstacles and weaknesses.
