Since I really like having control of my weight now, I like to share my long sought after knowledge with friends. I rarely talk about my weight with anyone unless they ask, mainly because so few people believe me or want to hear what I have to say.
But since you were curious enough to look, I'll tell you. The eye-opening reason and one deciding factor I lost 100 lbs. and kept it off for over 12 years is this;
I switched out all of my sugars and grains for a different kind of carbohydrate. They're called vegetables.
Did you know that vegetables are almost 100% carbohydrate? I did not.
That's not a bad thing, either, it's just a fact of nature. I mean avocados and banana have a little fat and some veggies have a little protein but in the grand scheme of things, it's practically nothing.
So what do I eat, now?
It took me years because I stumbled along, not knowing what I was doing or why I was doing it for the most part.
But the end result was amazing. I lost 100 lbs. and kept it off for over 12 years now. It was especially amazing for me, having unsuccessfully dieted for 30 years or so before I figured this out.
In the past, I could always find a way to lose but I could never keep it off, and not only that, I always ended up weighing more than when I lost the weight in the first place. That's the problem with diets.
The first photo below is me when I was 38. I'm smiling and having fun but it was hard for me to keep up with family in those days. I was usually too tired. I tried to avoid eating a lot of red meat and I ate whole wheat bread. I thought those two things were positives it turned out I was really wrong. I also exercised a lot and that helped my mental health and probably my heart health but it didn't make too much of a difference in my weight.
In the second photo, I'm about 58 and also smiling. I feel and look a lot better at this weight and I still have a great time eating and socializing with friends. I average about 25% more energy than I had in the first photo even though I'm now 61. My weight fluctuates by around 5-7 lbs. but beyond that, it's been possible for me to keep it off. It wasn't possible for me before and believe me, I tried.

I'm asking for your email address to get it because I want to stay in touch with you! I have lots of good stuff coming in the near future that I want to be sure you find out about.
