My husband is from Jamaica. Yes, there creed is don't worry, be happy. He also has his own, sit, eat, drink, be happy. Well I followed his advice for a year and gained 60lbs since we got married a year and a half ago. I knew better but took the easy way out. Now I have to really work, to get my health back and to be happy. Now that my husband has moved out I am better able to control what I eat and my activity level. Even though the separation was sudden I'm not emotionally eating my way through it. I'm actually relieved that now I can get back to just taking care of myself. Sounds selfish but some people are not meant to be together and they suck the life right out of you.

Enter a summary of your goals, or just a few you would like to share.
My goal is to take off the weight I've gained since I got married. Then I want to lose 50lbs more.

My Program:
Give an overview of what you are doing to meet your goals.
Right now I am replacing 2 meals a day with slim fast. My snack is granola. I eat a well balance supper and Sunday is my free day. I eat sensibly like I know how to and how I should. Restricting what I eat seems to be working better for me. And giving myself a "free" day so to speak, I don't feel deprived.

My soon to be X-husband started a garden and left me to take care of it. I thank him for that. I love working with plants, watching things grow. Vegetables are great you get flowers and good things to eat. I am learning the best ways to compost. I've always been a recycler and composting is just recycling natures products.

    Thank you so much for your comment Barbann. I see you're a Nascar Fan, do you have a team you like? or do like all of them.

    Yes it does take time to lose our weight but we have to remember time is on our side. We have the power to do what right and we have time to plan it all out. Its a learning curve we all have to relearn but we can do it. I am so proud that you have made steps to work on your weight and to get healthy. You can do it and you will.

    Thanks again,
    Big Hugs,
