    A Lot of Weight...

    I am a totally different woman than I was 4 and a half years ago.  Back then I weighed in at about 500 pounds. I had to purchase a special scale to be able to weigh myself.  I thought I was hopeless and that my life was pretty much over. I had this awakening at that...

    30 Pounds Down; 50 To Go!

    You don't know how excited I was to look down at the scale and see it under 200 for the first time in years.  I still have 50 more to go, but the fact that I've gotten this far is enough motivation for me to keep going and never stop.  Because even after I lose my...

    I had been morbidly obese all of my life.

    I remember being 167 pounds when I was 10... That's about how much I should weigh at my adult height of 5'7. I remember on my 18th birthday stepping on the scale and I clocked in at my highest weight, 308 pounds. Eventually I just got tired of being so big after having been...

    I Finally Feel Like My Life Is Getting Under Control

    I think the first time I realized I was "chubby" was when I was in Jr High. My parents did not want to admit it so they said I was going to have a growth spurt and it would go away. But it did not go away. I would lose 10 and gain 15 or 20. As you all can relate this wore down...

    1. Only eat single serving sizes(for meals or snacks). You'll be very hungry at first, but after a few days your stomach will naturally shrink and you will get full faster and feel full longer (I can't believe people really get surgery for the same thing). This means you shouldn...

    48 pounds over 5 months by a low carbohydrate

    diet, no sugars, lots of fibre and protein, lots of fat. With supplements like L-Carnitine, fish oil, vitamins and mahogany seeds. I had to. I was obese and had diabetes. Now I feel much better. I'm still at 27 BMI so I have another 20 pounds to lose.
