This weight loss journey that has turned into a health journey has been so eye opening, It has truly taught me so much about myself, I have grown so much. It is such a wonderful feeling, What I truly know for sure is that You have to find what works for you. I have read books on weight loss, read articles, on the web, in newspapers, in magazines, Looked at Oprah, Dr OZ, Dr Phil. Bob Green. and of course Spark People and in the end I had to figure it out for myself.
Don't get me wrong. I took what would works for me from every one and every thing, That is where the journey begins. With Me. Trial and error. I know it can be very easy for some to just follow a diet plan just do every thing that they say and it works. The problem for me is I just don't like most of the foods they what you to eat
So for me I had to work it out. I know I will have to do this for the rest of my life so I had to figure out what I could do and what I know I could eat and enjoy for the rest of my life, That is why I am not on a diet but a life style change.
I have met my weight goal so now the true journey begins, what will it take to keep my weight where it is now. Again trail and error. I know I can and will work it out. I have been so Blessed, I can't Thank God enough for opening my eyes.

What this journey has taught me is. You have to find what works for you and go for it, and know that what works will not always stay the same. It will change from time to time and you must change with it.
