emoticon I have been having to reteach my husband about being able to eat 3 meals a day plus a snack and how when done in moderation AND made myself; it is healthier and that we both can still get to our weight goals.

I look forward to getting to know you.

Thanks, again.

Thank you Brenda!

I am so happy to be here and I am going slow so that I can learn all that I can without overwhelming myself.

I have been trying to answer all of the posts on the different teams I am on; however, I am taking those, also, one step at a time. I working on my consistency and listening to my body as to how it reacts to certain foods. I have NOT yet, emoticon tried any of the receipes on this site. I will go on tomorrow when I make out my grocery list for the week; my husband has put in a request for something new and different to eat. Thank goodness he eats whatever I cook for him; which makes it easy to do this--only have to cook one meal instead of being a short order cook like I was when I was married to my first husband and my kids were little.

I look forward to getting to know everyone on Love To Cook team page.

Thanks, again!
Janie

Thank you! I am walking the steps and I have cut out processed sugars; however, I am using sugar in the raw called Stevia, but I do limit my use of that per a day because you can still pound on the calories with it, too. emoticon emoticon

my sister lost 93 pounds by walking 15,000 steps a day. i lost 44 pounds by giving up all grain and sugary products.

find the foods that work with your body chemistry and that give you the most bang for your calories consumed.

My name is Janie Nelson. I am 44 years old, I have 2 kids---my son is 25 years old and my daughter is 20 years old. I am married to my best friend, John, for 3 years. I am originally from Roseville, MI and moved to Austin, TX in fall of 2008 and we moved to Biloxi, MS in December, 2009. Love living only 3 minutes from the beach.

I started on my weight loss journey in 2006 at which time I weighed in at 326lbs. It was at a Mary Kay convention in Michigan, when I couldn't take care of myself when I went to the ladies room. I was embarrassed, I went back to my hotel room and when I looked over my clothes and noticed that my clothes were huge. I cried and decided to take my life back into my own hands. Since then, I have yo-yo'd around; in 2010 my lowest weight was 183; however, with stress, time, premenopausal symptoms, and depression; I have gone back up 30 lbs or so.

In August, 2011, I started feeling like I was pregnant---very! However, I just chalked it up as the stress of working alongside my husband 18 hours a day 6 days a week that I was losing control of my self. By Christmas I was feeling extremely pregnant and made an appointment to see my doctor. It turned out that the fibroids tumor that was slowly growing decided to have a growth spurt. On February 22, 2012, exactly (to the day) 25 years after the birth of my son, I gave birth to a 3lbs beign tumor and both of my ovaries had adhesions on them. Now the factory and it's smoke stacks are gone, I have lost 16 lbs (day before surgery i weighed in at 223lbs); but now I am going through hot flashes worse than before and my depression is now on a roller coaster ride. I am taking medications for hormone replacement and for my depression. Oh yeah, I have problems sleeping and taking mess for that too.

Anyway, I am very excited to be apart of this wonderful website. I have tried so many different things to lose weight and for the last 2 years feeling like I need to starve myself just to lose the weight. I can't wait to get back under 200lbs.

I am so looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Janie

P.S. I am my husband's administrative assistant and working for him hasn't always been smooth sailing. Lol!
