A Story of a Journey ... Just cold turkey

I began my original journey in March 2009 weighing 380#. I new that I had been on so many "diet plans" in my life that I finally through 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 new that I had been on so many "diet plans" in my life that I finally through 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.

A great pleasure in life is doing something that others say; YOU CAN'T DO.

Found a poem by Emerson
"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can." Ralph Waldo Emerson:
wise man not sure it was written for a spark tip but sure hits the nail on the emoticon head for me

Don't give up.
There are too many nay-sayers out there who will try to discourage you.
Don't listen to them.
The only one who can make you give up is yourself.
~ Sidney Sheldon ~
