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.

ABILITY is what you're capable of going, MOTIVATION determines what you do, ATTITUDE determines how well you do it..

It's not a Diet... But a Life Style... that you have to plan...

It's not for Him... it's for Yourself... Keep that in the plan...

It's not for just one day... two... or three... four... But Everyday...

It's not to feel really good in a dress... oh noooo... Nope...

but to feel good in your own skin...

It's not for the Beach... but for your Mind...

It's not for Competition... Ease that from your Mind...

But it's for the You that you Created... By your own Self...

You need to become a Better Version of You...

Every... Single... Day... Then Repeat... and Repeat...

Don't Forget to Keep Going... Going... Going...

*Goooooo* Gooooooo* Go... Go... Go... Go*
