  Amazing!!! You look wonderful. ..happy and healthy!

Thanks for the insight, inspiration and supplement info. I am so proud of your accomplishments and am greatly encouraged.

I was injured in a horrible accident in July I saved a young girls life but broke my tibia, fibula, tore my ACL, MCL, CL and meniscus. Recovery could be 6 months to a year. Today I am struggling with hunger knowing I am bed bound. I am trying to eat fruits and salad but I am extremely hungry. I had surgery for the torn meniscus two weeks ago Friday. I am going to see dr tomorrow and will take the list of supplements to ensure they are safe with my meds. If I get the ok I want to start on them no one has mentioned any supplements.

Thanks again and let's stay in touch.

Tips To Dropping Weight (over 200 pounds worth!)

Monday, August 25, 2014

I used SparkPeople and ate MORE naturally, in other words, less processed foods. I started by eliminating growth hormones, which can make cows fat (and thus the people who eat and drink from the cows fat) from meat and milk and buying organic. Talk to your doctor about anything I'm about to type next. It is only my opinion and I am writing from my experience.

The LESS Processed food in your diet, the thinner and less hungry you will be. Your appetite will drop like crazy when you get on more natural sources of food. Note: I say MORE and never ALL. ALL makes life a pain in the butt sometimes and can be very expensive, but it is something to strive fore.

Vitamin D is something people who have a lot of belly fat are low in, which has been shown in many scientific studies (see google), so I took it through my weight loss for seasonal affective disorder (depression from sun deprivation) and also because I have a lot of belly fat.

Cinnamon and Chromium 2000 mg cures a sweet tooth for me personally and is something that helps with my diabetes and helped me get off insulin. You can get it at any Walgreens or Walmart and it comes in a green bottle for around ten dollars. It helps with keeping blood sugar from spiking and seems to help me with my binging. I also took this throughout my weight loss and need to get back to it. It seems I plateau whenever I become lax with this one supplement.

B12 I took this throughout my whole weight loss in either shot or tablet form. It helps with energy and pairs well with the other B vitamins for balance, especially b6 and b1.

Protein- I like Nectar Sweets by Syntrax, which you can get on Amazon because it mixes well, isn't clumpy and tastes good. There are a variety of flavors and you don't have to drink 8 ounces at a time! 2 ounces can give you 24 grams of protein for 100 calories! Flavors include my personal faves: cookies and cream, fuzzy navel, double stuffed cookie, chocolate truffle, cappuccino, strawberry mousse, vanilla torte and more.

More tips to come at a later date. That's it for today. Have a great day!

  Thanks for sharing your experience. I totally agree with you about vitamin D, cinnamon, cromium and B12. I use them all too, as i am diagnosed with hypoglisemia. Yet, i still have cravings for sweets and would love to hear more about how you overcome with that.

You look great by the way. Congratulations once again! emoticon

I Did IT! I Graduated! From Bed-Ridden to Dream!

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Today I achieved my dream of graduating from coaching school as a certified life coach. Who would have thought that the 460 pound hopeless woman, the queen of can't, who had no faith in herself and less than 0 self esteem could ever get herself up, let alone try to help others up? Well, that's what dreams are for!

Did I wait for magic motivation to hit? No. I started walking down the healthy eating path in baby steps, taking on what I could and leaving the rest.

Did I do rigorous exercise? No. I started with lifting shampoo bottles in bed and worked my way up to using an arm bike because my legs were pretty much useless at the time.

Did it hurt to exercise with all of your conditions and how did you get past it? Yep! I wanted a life so badly that I would have done anything for it. So you have to find that one thing, cause, person, meaning, whatever it is in your life that you would do anything for and go for it. Keep pictures of it everywhere. Visit places that remind you of it. Talk about it. Don't let it go.

How do you keep going? Some days it is very hard! HABITS keep me going. It takes 21 days to undo a habit, 30 to reset one and 6 months to a year to get a new one down. Never take an old habit away without replacing it with something positive. Add positive habits into your life and you have less room for the negative ones.

Then when you start seeing more and more changes, keep sprinkling in the dreams. It isn't just your weight that changes, it's your life. You have to be ready for that, so lose slowly. The metamorphosis if you have a lot to lose can be shocking and scary at times. Those dreams that seem unreachable now have a way of coming true.

    I've heard of 21 days to make a habit, but I agree, I think it takes way longer! And the same on undoing an old habit.

Long term weight loss is about keeping your focus :) Changing your environment so that you don't fail.

    You mentioned the length of time change a habit takes. I don't think I was aware it took quite so long. That's good for me to know. I will work with that as the bad habits have certainly slipped in this summer.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon How proud you must be!!!!! No one is more deserving of all the accolades than you. You not only worked hard to become a life coach; but you have totally CHANGED your life around a complete 360.... What an inspiration. Words cannot begin to say just how much I admire you, and can't wait to have a story like yours. Thanks so much for always sharing your heart and soul with us, even during the difficult times. It helps us to know we too can make it thru the struggles and come out on the other end, and one fall doesn't mean we are the total failure we have always been led to believe. I think you can tell from all the comments here you mean so much to so many, and we are excited to be continuing your journey with you. Congratulations dear Beth. God Bless. emoticon

    I'd never seen this before, but I think it would work. I already do some of these things, such as eating small amounts of nuts or seeds in place of chips. I also find that I have fewer cravings when I have healthy lean protein with every meal.
