Just in case none of you know how I got here, where I am today and if you didn't read my "About Me" page, I will share with you now. Hopefully it will inspire you to do the same.
I was overweight and unhappy about my appearance. I just knew I would never be able to lose any weight at my age. I accepted the fact that I would be that size forever.
My husband and a few friends at the Fire Dept where he works, started this crazy raw food 30 day diet on January 1st, 2010. I told him, I'll eat veggies and salad with you but I'm not gonna diet and I'm still gonna eat meat.
Well, half way thru he saw something on TV about The Belly Fat Cure book. He said I have this book I want to buy for you. I said no thanks. He always, only reads all these boring Self-Help kind of books. He said that's OK, I'm gonna get it anyways. I said, Well you're just gonna be wasting your money, cause I'm probably not gonna read it and I'm definitely not gonna do it.
Well I just ignored the book for a few days and then read through it. A few times in fact and said to him, I think I can do this!
Well - here I am, I have been doing the Belly Fat Cure since Jan 25th 2010 and I was 51 when I started. It took me 1 year to lose the weight.. I can't say enough how great and healthy I feel by doing this!! I am now 55 years old 5ft 6 1/2" and my goal was to loose weight and to get down to 145-150 lbs. When I started I was 238 lbs and I wore a very tight size 18 and 20's.
I have now reached my goal and lost 90 lbs and have kept it off and wear a size 6. I did this with NO strenuous exercise, I only walk every day with my dogs.
Now I continue to write this blog to help others by offering support, tips and healthy recipes that I come across. I write this for YOU!! Not for the recognition - but just to help others. If I can help YOU get healthy and to a size you will be proud of - well then, that's all I want.
|I now pass the baton to you - its your turn.|
If I Can Do IT - YOU CAN DO IT TOO!!!
Have A Great rest of the weekend...
Keep on BFC ' n :-)
