The Weight Loss Picture That Won A Prize

Thanks John of Digital Studio Inc  for taking this awesome picture
Spring 2008


me – a size 18, the overalls are a size 24.

The above picture and testimony won a prize of $500!! Yippeeee!

I personally feel weight loss is a chemistry project.

A big ( no pun intended ) very complicated, individual, unique equation that requires all the variables to be working together. 

Some of the variables include:

Foods – do you eat for taste or for nutrition?
Fiber – are you getting enough?
Fluids – many of us have replaced water with soda or coffee – what do you drink?
Function – are we stressed, do all our body systems work well? 
Fitness – we moving it? daily?
Finesse – do we have the gumption to have healthy eating be a life long lifestyle?
Fight – willpower is part of the plan – what are you willing to let go of ?

I believe each of us may have the intent to lose weight but don’t combine all the variables. When all the pieces aren’t in place, that intention gets deflated pretty darn fast. 

I was completely apathetic to my weight gain. I had given up.

I was fat. 

I had decided to accept fatness as my fate and call it a day. 

I needed more than help, I needed hope.

LOTS of hope

Two weeks gave me the tools and the hope. Simply – on this program I felt really good, I began to see results and I felt I could move forward. I believed.

Update –  January 2010 – I am still losing weight slowly and effortlessly. Still feeling really good.
