When I Was At 420 Lbs What Was My Reason For Choosing To Get Where I Am
Members Were Sparked
When I reached my heaviest I had a wake up call from my aunt who is now gone to be with God. One is God woke me up to the fact if I kept going this way I would be dead like my dad. Two was my aunt telling I was 160 lbs more than my father when he died. That alone scared me into weight loss.
Now that's she's gone I have chosen to do it in her memory as well as my dad's They would want me to be healthy. God is still by my side. But I can already tell at 50 lbs lighter that walking is a lot easier for me My goal is to walk a 5k in less than an hour this year if possible

I forgo eating out of bowls and use medium sized cups instead. It makes my brain things I am getting huge portions!! Because the cup is tall instead of wide the portions seem larger to me and I feel more satisfied.
The smaller the cup the more it looks like I am getting!
