Real ChangePosted by Shunned on 2 years ago
I have lost 175 pounds since staring in Jan of 2013. I have managed to keep it off after hitting my lowest just before Jan of 2014. I am one of the more extreme cases when it comes to juicing and weight loss. I have not done anything unsafe just poured my heart and soul into changing myself and my husband for the better. I exercise no matter what in most cases :)
I started on a group called fabulous fatties and still to this day check in I owe that group quite a bit and even tho many of the people that I know well have come and gone I still call it home.
I started a thread here on forums with some tips I have picked up along the way
knowledge is power when it comes to changing your life for the better.
keeping the weight off has been more challenging than losing it. juicing is easy eating is harder. I still juice once a day at least usually for a meal and have added smoothies as breakfast for the past few months and love them.
Do i cheat? yes. Im picky with what I cheat with .. I wont eat french fries or red meat (lost my taste for it) I wont eat stuff full of junk or stuff I dont even know what it is. My cheat is usually something from whole foods.. that way I know what I am eating if if its not quite as healthy as it could be. I dont do it often and I dont bring stuff home. I do fluctuate but find as long as I stick to a regular plan such as one smoothie one juice one salad and a healthy snack I drop right back down to where I want to be.
having spent from the age of 8 on overweight being where I am at now feels like a dream. We actually biked over 22 miles the other day in the heat and humidity.. walked threw soft sand for over two hours and sure we were tired but you would have never even seen me in a situation like that two years ago.
I adore Joe cross and Phil and I am also a Richard SImmons junkie! His new work out series called HOPE has changed my life quite a bit. Before that it was sweating to the oldies :)
Id have to say one of my foods I miss the most this time of year is ice cream and Nathans hot dogs.. however I simply find something else to take their place. Strawberries and blueberries are awesome as are avocado! Frozen grapes are the best on a hot day.
I will still check in on the FF group I just thought it was time to start my own thread and let people see how life is after you lose the weight. Being a emotional bored eater its a daily challenge however change is possible. Take it one day at a time and believe in yourself because your worth it!
