I DID IT !

I hit MY weight goal. NOT my surgeon's goal 10 years ago when I started this advent....that was to weigh145 pounds. Then he agreed that having started at 320, (and then 5'3" ) that a more logical goal would be in the area of 160 to 170. The lowest I ever got was 175. And I did not maintain that for even a moment. The the next 8 years of losing my only sibling to the Flu at the age of 49 (please get your flu shot) and then my surviving parent a few years later... personal illness and drama.... and creeping weight gain....

14 months ago at 220 pounds and 63 years old I got my act back together.

I went back to eating Protein - first and foremost - protein, healthy vegetables and fruit, and a smattering of healthy whole grain carbs and healthy fats.

I ate mindfully - and intentionally to fuel my mind and body.

I ate a treat daily

I slowly changed HOW I eat, what I eat, and when I eat it.

I did not announce it, I did not talk about it. I just did it.

I lost 45 pounds in the past 14 months. Not fast weight loss, but steady

And I may decide to lose a bit more. Or not.

Thank you for being my sounding board. Thank you for being here for support.

Today I am thankful for my sleeve, for saggy baggy hanging skin and not caring. And for being healthy !

Congrats! I look forward to meeting my goal of BMI 20 or less.
