I lost weight 3 years ago the old fashioned way, counting calories on Sparkpeople. I craved the entire time, then gained it back and then some. May 2, 2015 I started Trim Healthy Mama. As of today, May 15, I've lost a few pounds. More importantly, I've lost my cravings - even when I taste carb & fat ridden foods.
-------------------------
Update on May 8, 2016 - I lost 18 pounds while following THM principles over several months, fell off the bandwagon, but only gained 3 pounds back. Not bad. I'm back on the THM plan and plan to keep going.
--------------------------

Other goals I want to do at a lower weight:
Hike the Blue Beaver Trail up Lookout Mountain.
Spend a night at the Hike-Inn.
Swim with the manatees in FL.
------------------
May 2019 - The weight I lost in 2016, I've gained back. I'm working on weight loss again, and I've lost 10 pounds over 3 months, 5 in March, none in April, 5 in May. I really think 3 to 5 pounds a month is realistic for me.
My eating plan: Using the Sparkpeople suggested diet for my age, height & weight. Most lunches are a Premier Shake with a chocolate bar of 150 calories in the afternoon. Mostly avoiding processed foods, but no banned foods.

Other Information:
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race. - Calvin Coolidge
