For the last 16 years, I have been completely unable to lose weight. No matter what I ate, no matter how much I exercised. I watched everything that went into my mouth, exercised diligently, and the only direction the scale went was up. I've tried everything....Weight Watchers, South Beach, you name it. Nothing. So now I am trying JJ Virgin and for the first time in 14 years, the scale is going the right way.

But like so many things before it, the scales stopped moving the right way and nothing I did seemed to make it go again. Then I heard about LCHF and the science convinced me. Will it continue to work....time will tell....

My Goals:
Once upon a time, I was a naturally thin person. I miss her and want her back.


My Program:
After trying everything, it seems that food intolerance was making me fat. I am doing the JJ Virgin program and for the first time in 14 years, I am losing weight...and then I wasn't....so now I am finding success with LCHF.



Personal Information:
My life in a nutshell: born in North Dakota, raised in California for most of my growing up years. Went into the Navy right out of High School and was a Reactor Operator for my 6 1/2 years. Went to college, majored in history, became a stay-at-home mom and homeschooled three children from kindergarten until they left for college. (I have a couple of years left before the youngest leaves.) I just wrapped up a masters in pastoral studies and am a chaplain for the Port of Houston and am looking at hospice chaplaincy in the long term.

    Sister, I don't remember if I mentioned this in any posts that you also posted to, but MCT oil is being investigated for use in reversing fatty liver:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23576
    797

    I've read about it in several places now, and heard it mentioned in at least one of Dr. Mark Hyman's Fat Summit interviews a few weeks back.

    Thanks for reading my blog "tip". I've long thought that figuring our your head is at least as important as figuring out your food!
    Good health to you!
    I also wanted to mention that a GREAT team to be on is Keto Clarity when you are LCHF. The dietary goals are the same. If you are over 50, the LC 50+ Women's Team is very supportive -- although the dietary plan encompasses a great many.... varieties (I'm the current team leader! - and I also do LC HF!)
