Update: I hate to admit it, but over a period of 5 years, I gained all my weight back, plus a few. Ugh! I started over, trying Weight Watchers as of Monday, Oct. 15, 2018. Doing well so far. Lost 7lbs my first week!

Update: I've been back on track for 4 months now and have lost 36 lbs! Its working! Praise God!

Update: It's been 4 months, and I'm down 40+lbs!! Thank you JESUS!!

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.
