Thank you Julie. You saved my life. I was never heavy as a child so after I had children in my 30s, I gradually gained weight. Once I hit size 18 and the scale said 200 pounds, I knew if I did not change my life, I would be in trouble. Then a personal tragedy struck and only reinforced my need to get my own health in order. On 1/14/15, my adventure changed. After nine months, I introduced the potato and am working on gaining those 5 pounds. I was really surprised at how easy I found to stick to it and not cheat. I am now used to it and can't even imagine eating the way I did before. I do miss some things and know that they cannot be gone forever and i do know when I can have those things again. Just not right now. For my birthday, I did not have any cake and my wonderful husband made me a meat loaf cake. When you have enough determination and want it bad enough, you can succeed. Thank you Julie for giving me the tools to live a healthier life. I went from a size 18 to size 8 in 9 months. You can do it too if you want it bad enough. Now the challenge begins in keeping it off and living the healthy life.
