I make changes in the food I eat in small increments. This helps me to gain confidence in my ability to actually change to, eating better & healthier foods.

I started my journey in Jan 2010. However my journey started before that when I was eating out of control. So, the way I am looking at my weight loss journey is that I didn't put the weight on over 2-3 months it was over several years. So, if it takes me several years to lose 43lbs I'm ok with that.
I am eating what I want but changing my life over to a Healthy Life!
Instead of diving right into the deep waters, I decided to focus on ONE change at at time. I started with EXERCISE since adding exercise was a healthy option that wouldn't 'deprive' me of what I LOVE the most, FOOD! lol It's been ONE month today and I am down 12 big ones!!
Month 2 I will focus a little more on my diet. I will decrease the amount of foods instead of changing the types or kinds of foods that I am eating. For example, instead of a whole cheesesteak, I will eat half. Month 3 I plan to add another change. Maybe I will ADD salads or more veggies..
