Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Cheryl and I am from Alberta Canada. I had always been slim as a teen, it wasn't until I had my children that I started a battle with my weight...not just a battle but an ALL OUT WAR! lol
If you can believe this - I have lost over 100 lbs not only once, but twice in my life! Guess what...I am back up again. I just had an aha moment about a month and a half ago (More of a - what the heck am I doing??? moment). The first time I lost my weight was with WW. Good program BUT I am more of a naturalist that does not like chemicals and aspartame etc. The second time I lost my weight was with The fat flush book. It is exactly the program I needed. So why did I gain my weight back? Rebellion, too many nachoes, a little bit of lackluster...why do any of us gain weight? I decided a month ago to get my butt back in gear and get back to healthy!!! I am down about 20 lbs (just going by the way my clothing fits) I think. I have decided not to weigh myself and just let my body be the guide to where it wants to go. I now am facing the fact that this truly isn't a "Diet" but it is the way I have to live my life. So wish me luck...I'll keep you all posted on my progress. My starting weight was 280 lbs.
