January 2021 update: Well, I did it! Last week I made Lifetime on WW after completing my 6 week maintenance after hitting goal weight. I'm amazed at this, especially with SIP stress and multiple holidays. I enjoyed MANY treats over the holidays, but got right back on track the next day. It amazes me that I can eat tike a real person and still lose. LOL. My life is 100 percent better. I'm not in constant pain and have the energy to walk and hike and have fun. It took me over 2 years to get here, but SO worth it! I'm worth it! YOU'RE worth it! If I can do this, anyone can, believe me. I, like many of you am a food addict, but I will no longer let food control my life. The WW app is very helpful to track everything, even has a bar code scanner. I'm told "My Fitness Pal" is a good free alternative. But I love the support I get with WW. The main thing is that tracking is a must. I don't go hungry and I don't binge any more. I care what goes into my body. It's been 7 weeks and am still maintaining, hoping to drop a few more pounds so i have some "wiggle room". (With WW Lifetime, it's free membership if you weigh in once a month and maintain within 2 pounds ) Dec 2019 update: I finished the year off strong. I've lost almost 50lbs this year, and 75 total since I started in Oct 2018. Still doing WW. Still Loving it. It's hard sometimes, and I've slipped up, but I get right back in the saddle. I'm worth it. Update March 2019: It's been 4 and a half months, and I'm down 40+lbs!! Thank you JESUS!! I love getting new clothes! Feb 2019 Update: I've been back on track for 4 months now and have lost 36 lbs, doing it the WW way! Its working! Praise God! WW isn't a "diet". I can eat whatever I want, just not whenever I want. There are no food restrictions per se. I'm learning to plan my food so I can eat the things I want. I don't feel deprived. There's really nothing I can't eat if I work it into my plan. Oct 2018: I hate to admit it, but I DID go back. Over a period of 5 years, I gained all my weight back, plus a few. Ugh! I hurt all the time and have no energy. I just started over, trying Weight Watchers (WW) as of Monday, Oct. 15, 2018. Doing well so far. Lost 7lbs my first week! Maybe this won't be so bad. ********* Past: (2012): "I've lost over 90 pounds since Jan 23, 2011. A year and a half ago, I would never have believed I would be in such a place now. I'm NEVER going back to that place again! NEVER!! I feel so much better after loosing this weight. At 5'2", I weighed 235 and was miserable. The way I did it was a slightly modified version of the the South Beach diet. Basically low carb, but it's the only "bad carbs" you don't eat. You DO still eat veggies, WHOLE grains, beans & nuts lean meat/protein (I eat more than it says, and not ALWAYS lean) and lots of healthy veggies and some fruit. My modifications are that I cut back on grains, and fruit some. That's it. No counting carbs, no counting calories, no tracking points. You can either eat it or not. I DO have to say in all honesty that my faith in God (as my Rock) has been the biggest part of my success. I must admit the truth though. It's MORE than just the diet. It's GOD. He is my Rock. He is my strength when I would have failed long ago. I can't tell my story without Him. I could never do this alone. "

My Goals:
Update: Starting over. Want to be there again.

I started my weight loss journey in Jan 2011. My goal was to loose 100lbs. Not sure if I can do this (been on a plateau for months) but Lord willing...

My Program:
Update: Weight Watchers Freestyle. I use my daily points and have started using my weeklies to add healthy fats to my diet. It's working. I mostly avoid wheat, especially white. I've learned from that past that wheat makes me gain weight. I also try to avoid added sugar.

Past: Basically using the South Beach Diet, Supercharged, with some slight modifications like eating less grains and a bit more fat & nuts. I eat a lot of protein.
