Thank God for friends and family. I just noticed my sz 24 clothes were really big. A friend told me she would buy me a pair of jeans for Christmas but I had to try them on. She said I was a sz 20. I told her no way.
Well she was right! Then I pulled out a sz 20 skirt and it fit too. And it was a straight skirt. I haven’t been this size since I was in my twenties. This year has been amazing. I am ecstatic! I hope you are too.
I did it. I’ve lost 200lbs. I have been hovering at between 195 & 197 for so long, I almost didn’t realize it when it happened. It has been a goal for so long, I’m surprised I didn’t have a bigger reaction. I still have 20 -25 lbs to go. I know it will happen.
Many of us are waiting at home for Sandy to hit full force. Think of this as a vacation to do things you have put off. But what ever you do, don’t let the munchies set you back!
I decided to read a junk novel, sort through my sweaters and plan for the rest of the year. I know the sweater thing sounds dull,but at the end of the winter I always find sweaters I forgot I had. Planning is probably the biggest thing. You don’t often get a chance to have time when you can’t leave the house!
Enjoy your time and your family. Be safe!

I thought I would share this with you. I kept waiting until I could say I have lost 200lbs,
but I have only lost 195. You would think 5lbs is nothing, but I think I am too busy enjoying my life to focus. It will happen soon. Stay tuned.

As soon as I said I was going to lose 50lbs, I was starving! Yes I did have a couple of stressful things happen, but really..
The best way to put an end to this is to get on the scale. It will give you a wake up call and keep any weight gain to a minimum. It made me get out of bed and go swimming this morning.

One of my favorites meals is Dannon yogurt with fruit on the bottom. I know there are better choices but hey, I like it.
The other day they didn’t have so I decided to try Greek yougurt. Here is the breakdown:
Brand Calories Protein Fat Sugar
Dannon w/fruit 150 6 1.5 27
Chobani 140 14 0 19
It may seem like I am only savings 10 calories but that is the net saving.
Cut the sugar 32(4×8) and added 32 in protein. The 10 calories saved is all fat. Over all I would say this is a great upgrade.
Now I only have to find a way to cut 490 more calories a day to reach my goal.

Good news, weight loss may not just be about willpower. According to Daniel Amen, MD, there are 5 different brain patterns that that can have an effect on our success.
Don’t get me wrong. You still have to exercise and eat less. But understanding your pattern and using the related supplements can help according to Amen.

Sometimes life just gets the better of us. In the last few months, I have been doing seminars. Started a new business. Helped my daughter buy a house. Went on a cruise with my parents, my sister and my daughter. Had a new grandson. And still lost weight.
What I realized, is that I am not focusing on just losing weight any more. What I am focusing on is reaching my full potential. I want to be Healthy, Wealthy and Alive in 2011. I hope you will join me on this exciting exploration.
