    again, thank you all! The comments are making my head swell with pride LOL...and it makes me want to continue on my healthy journey.

    If **********I************ can do this, I KNOW that anyone can. I was so bound/addicted and couldn't get free for so long. But I did. And so can you!

    Well done you!! I'm inspired...any tips?

    It sounds like a lie, but it's not >>>> I count calories, write down everything I eat, exercise, drink water, quit soda, decided to be happy every day no matter what was going on, asked God to teach me about nutrition (and He did! and still is!), and had a weight loss mentor that I'm accountable to every day. I also go to TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) which is a weight loss support group. ( to find a chapter in your area)

    I've had several people ask me about my weight loss and they want me to "let them in on my little secret because they won't tell anyone, etc". Some think I had surgery or am taking a pill of some sort or drinking some product or SOMETHING! LOL
    When I've told some of those people what I REALLY am doing, they seem disappointed LOL

    For MANY years I prayed earnestly that God would cause me to lose weight (I also added "In a healthy manner!" I didn't want to end up with an illness or something that made me lose weight! LOL) But for all those years, what I was doing wrong was expecting God to do all the work. He won't. It was when I put the work behind my prayers, that's when it happened. Also, I believe one of the ways God has been helping me with this is by helping my THINKING to change about nutrition and health. I WANT to be healthy now (not just thin, but healthy)....I don't want chemicals and artificial stuff in my body from food and drink. Used to, I didn't care in the least bit about that. Thank you, Jesus, for doing a work in my MIND!

    This is my weight loss facebook page if anyone wants to send me a request.

    And thanks again for the compliments everyone! You can do it too!
  • Way to go!!
    question...I have about the same amount to long did it take you?

    My highest weight (331) was in 2008. Then I lost 20 pounds and spent the next several years yo-yo'ing with 5 pounds. I've lost the last 51 pounds since September.
