find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.



it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

I've been fighting the battle of the bulge for as long as I can remember. Even when I weighed 113 lbs. in college, I felt fat. So I came to realize that weight gain is a psychological problem for me. I do the yo-yo thing---gain it and lose it and gain it and lose it. But as the years kept passing, I began to realize that I wasn't loosing as much as I was gaining. When I turned 60, my metabolism seemed to shut down all together, I am now 35 lbs over my healthy weight and believe me I can tell it. My blood pressure has been affected and I am finding it difficult to breath when I exert myself. For a person who is active and enjoys sports, that is a real handicap. My weight gain is no longer just in my mind--it's on my body and hard to miss. I am hoping that being a member of this group can help me stay on track and do what I need to do to get the weight back under control.
