October 2020 - Met my third goal - 60 lbs! I’m loving my new SP friends, teams, challenges and encouragements. Coming here is my daily “must do.” Adding another 5 lb. goal...

September 2020 - 50 lbs gone. I made my goal! IF works for me! Adjustment #3 - lose ten more.

July 2020. 30 pounds less! Look at my photo for before and after. Chubby cheeks - gone! Wrote a blog of how this came to be. I’m a happy lady.

June 2020. I am down 20 pounds and feel great! Researching diet study evidence by Dr. Jason Fung is sure an eye opener. Carbs, not fat, is what has caused the obesity epidemic. Diabetics taking insulin gain weight! Who knew! They don't tell you that. I am avoiding a family history of diabetes by taking charge now, reducing carbs to between 30-40%, not 50%. I don't need to do extreme KETO as my body can handle carbs, for now.

May 2020. I took a break from SP, gained weight, stopped regularly exercising and deleted all my posts, pictures, SP teams and more. So many things to regret! Now a month back in, ten pounds off my body, and improved fitness and health. Thank you willpower and SP.

April 2020 - back at square one. Never give up!

I'm reclaiming my life - in more ways than one. I'm establishing new goals, experiences and friendships. It is time for me to be happy. I now know that I am in control of MY destiny and it is up to me to shape it the way I want. Let the journey begin!

    Thanks for the goodie. I have spent most of the last few months in Manitoba and definitely not eating low carb, IF and it shows. I am looking forward to getting home early next month so I can refocus.
