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.

You must take personal responsibility, you can't change circumstances, the seasons or the wind, but you can change yourself.

BELIEVE that you can run (walk, bike, row, swim, etc.) farther or faster.
BELIEVE that you are young enough, old enough, strong enough, and
so on to accomplish EVERYTHING you want to do.
Don't let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond your SELF.
-John Bingham

BELIEVE in your capabilities and turn those tiny sparks of possibilities
into FLAMES of achievement, because you CAN! emoticon emoticon

Paula,
Hi. Haven't heard anything from you in a very long time. I really miss Paula's thoughts on both the ROLL CALL thread and the team wall. I hope all is well. Please stop by and let me know things are going. emoticon Pam
