If you are here and reading this, well then at some point you decided to try to get healthy and lose weight. I am no Guru or Teacher or Specialist - just a regular person that got lucky and found the right thing that worked for me.
I feel healthy now and at a size that I never thought I could get to at my age. In case you don't know - YEAH that's me in that before and after photo to the right. As I was losing I thought - "boy it would be great to get to a size 10". I didn't think that was even achievable. And now look at me, 4 and 1/2 years later still eating healthy and not only did I pass that size 10 - but I am a 6 now and age 55.
My Hubby says I eat like a BIRD and he can't eat like me. In fact - most people can't eat like me. When I step back and look at my eating patterns now in comparison to before - I guess I do eat like a bird.
I love and PREFER to eat at home and make all my own food and sweet treats. It is much healthier and I KNOW what I am putting in my mouth. I hardly ever eat processed or Fast Food anymore, but if I am out and have to - I know what to order now. A burger wrapped in lettuce, chicken strips with buffalo sauce for dipping, even 2 tacos if that's all that's around.
But the problem with eating out - it not enough fiber. In fact eating this way "LOW CARB & LOW SUGAR" there seems to never be enough fiber.
Come ON - people - we can all relate to this problem - right? That is one of the main reasons that I use lots of healthy flours to make tons of stuff now. Coconut Flour - Almond Flour - Chia Seeds - ground Flaxseeds. They seem to have more fiber in them and seem to make me fuller and balance me out more.
I am not by any means Gluten Free. I have no need to - gluten or wheat does not bother me. I don't eat it every day - but with all my homemade foods - it just turns out this way.
Even though I continue to maintain my weight, and even under, I still weight myself ever single night before bed and every morning. I KNOW - I am kind of Spazzy. And you might be thinking - WHY oh WHY??
But let me tell you that the only way I am able to stay this weight is by doing that and eating HEALTHY all the time of course.
For instance, if Hubby and I went out to dinner and I have a pc of bread as a treat and even maybe a few bites of his desert - If I don't pay attention - I will gain 1-2lbs just by doing that 1 night. Then the next day we might go to the movies and of course I eat popcorn (no butter) and that will make me gain 1lb. YUP
For the NORMAL eaters and NON-Healthy people - they will laugh at that and say - "1lb hahaha, that's nothing."
Yeah but if you are not careful - that 1-2lbs will turn into 5lbs - then into 10lbs - then into 20lbs...........
Then you're gonna say HOLY CRAP!! Where'd that come from and panic and say - this diet does not work and try some other scam and keep jumping from diet to diet and then just give up and say nothing works.
Then you think - I AM FAT and gonna stay this way I guess...
Let me share my secret to success with you..............SHHHHH
Just DON"T GIVE UP!!!
