I've lost 92lbs and i still want to loose idealy 50lbs more. I feel so much relief, . I was soooooo unhealthy.My knees hurt, my back hurt, i wasn't sleeping much, my breathing was so bad. i was always out of breathe. now i do Zumba and endure right through it. I'm just so grateful I decided to take on this life changing journey and be good to me for a change. Thanks for listening... Terry
I am so thankful and relieved to have my health back. I do still struggle with the fear of gaining weight back some but i do feel confident i won't. The thought only sneak in once and a while. It's so different this time around. I don't feel the same as when i did Jenny Craig/weight watchers, a matter of fact i don't feel like i'm even on a diet. I don't count calories, I don't feel pulled back like i used to at all. Because of the band i stay mindful and make better choices. there are things that I don't have anymore(carbonation,
hoagies pancakes) which could stretch my stomach but it's been 9 1/2 months since I've even bothered with them that I really don't miss them enough to cave.
Still doing bio-feedback and i have about 15lbs to go but if I'm feeling so great that i'm not in a hurry other than i'd love to have a hugh party. If i can retrain my brain anybody can. Stay strong and follow ur heart it will lead u. hugs and thanks for letting me vent my goodness. Merry Christmas too...
