I have lost 200 plus pounds and still going! No surgery. No crazy diets. No extreme exercise. I was bedridden at 460 pounds at least. My husband was my caregiver, pushing me in a wheelchair to get me around. I was in pain from herniated disks all up and down my spine, pinched nerve bundles, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis arthritis, degenerative disk disease, knees needing replaced, bad shoulders... One day, with God’s incredible mercy and help, I decided to change. My doctor prescribed me in home physical therapy where I started lifting shampoo bottles in bed. I moved on to an arm bike called The Magnetrainer,” yoga, walking first with and then without a walker, Body Groove online, resistance training... all in what I call Exercise Snacks. Those are small bits of exercise that you sneak in each day that add up to calorie burn at the end of the day. Kind of like the cookie, piece of pizza and handful of chips add up to a calorie overage at the end of the day. Read 1000 diet books and take what you like and leave the rest. You may just find a great health plan for YOU. An eating or health plan must be sustainable to be successful. That is exactly why being on a diet does not work. My blogs tell my journey and lessons learned along the way. Join me on My Team: The ~Indygirl Journey and lose weight with me! We have a fun, vibrant team!

    Listen for your own deep questions and follow them. Let them guide you the way a compass guides a lost traveler, marking true north when there are no maps. Sherry Ruth Anderson.
