THIS IS NOT A RACE IT'S A BATTLE FOR HEALTH & HAPPINESS! I am 56, have been married to my best friend for 39 years, have grown children, grandchildren, and even an ever growing number of great grandchildren..... I am blessed! I have struggled for so long...... I joined SP back in 2010 at my highest known weight of 345 and watched day by day as others lost weight, seemingly so very easily, and cried on my dry toast wandering why I couldn't budge an inch. Then one day I tried another way and (BAM) life started moving down for me. I started to journal all my food and fluid consumptions and weighted every morning in order to learn what foods, portion sizes, and exercise would benefit my weight loss, pain management, and over all healthy feeling moments. That way I built my own meal plans and amounts daily to best benefit my weight loss..... I also learn how much movement I needed to benefit my over all feeling of pain management and that (feel good) place in my life. I have been able to set up an eating regimen by studying what my own body needs and wants in order to drop that pound on the scales. I know others told me to not step on the scales but once a week or even once a month but doing it this way I know exactly what each food type will do to my own body and where I need to tweak the food menu plan or how much more I need to move. I now know how sensitive my body is to fluids, salt, sugars, carbs, and healthy produce. Its a living statement to myself. I had to start studying my body just like others would study for a test in school..... I have suffered from moments of set-backs. To many to really be mentioned here but I have blogged about them. The key is never, ever, ever, giving up. When you trip, and you WILL trip, get back up, blow your nose, and get back in the race..... You CAN do this! Everyone has a combination of diet and (OR) exercise that will work for them and their body. Don't give up until you have found YOUR combination...... And remember above all, God Is great my friends!
