When I was 11 I weighed 140 pounds. To lose weight I exercised several times a day, and kept a strict calorie and fat count. I ate what I wanted, but made sure I tried to keep within my goal.

Finally, after a year or so I weighed 110 pounds and was a size 5 until I was about 15. I started gradually gaining weight. When I was about 18 in 1996 I weighed around 130.

Over the next 7 years I gained up to 180 pound by 2003. I tried to lose weight and did briefly by eating Nutri System and going to the gym. From 2003 - 2009 I gained up to 220. For most of 2010 I was around 240. Then I hit my highest weight 260. Then I hit the brakes and said no more! I can't do this.

I have many health problems including: high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fast heart rate, migraines, depression and anxiety.
I had tried to lose weight starting in 2003. I tried Jenny Craig, Nutri System, counting calories, diet pills, slim fast, weight watchers and exercising. Nothing worked, so I gave up.

I heard about the PINK method on the Dr. Phil show and thought I would give it a try. I was reluctant at first because of the whey protein shakes, and focus on protein and vegetables. But I am forcing myself to try. Even if it means giving up (for the most part) my fav. foods and eating things I don't normally, the end result will be worth it if this diet works!
Now in 12/12 I was able to jump start my diet, lose 10 pounds and am now on portion control

    Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

    The Gemini girl likes two of everything and often has two marriages. She is "the twins" and can change easily. The Gemini girl is much smarter than people think. (Marilyn Monroe was a great Gemini). She can have nerve problems, injury to her hands, shoulders and lungs. She should NEVER smoke. She does well in any job that requires her to talk and deal with people, like insurance sales, teaching, hairdresser, or police dispatcher.
