Lost 30+ Pounds so far

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Hello Everyone. I was 306 pounds. Lost 30+ pounds in last 3 months on my own. I cut down not out but down on carbs and Sugar. I try to drink more water and eliminate sodas. I about only once a month have a real sweet like 1 slice of sweet potatoe pie. I eat fruits, make my own homemade CHICKEN vegetable soup. Eat protein and protein fruit shakes. I have acid reflux. Have been on blood pressure pills for 2 months. Goal is to get back off of medications so I am taking hydrochlorothiazide and now cardizem. I was taking Lisinopril which caused too much coughing. I have post nasal drip so I need all advice on natural remedies. I am glad to be here and I look forward to friends. I'm on Facebook too. Donna Young. Wilmington Delaware.

    Hey...Spark People has become my support groups, for you see I am a recovering grease-holic. Yes, it is true if you can "fry it" I can "eat it".

    Seriously moderation is a very important key to being successful in our journey. One day at a time....Look for small victories...Look for non-scale successes.

    Spark People research has found that people who get involved in social teams tend to be more successful in their efforts.

    I want to personally invite you to join the "SparkPeople's Official Healthy Habits Challenge Team" at: http://teams.sparkpeople.com/SPOHHC There you will find others that will support you in your journey and you will be able to help others as well.

    We have one of the best leadership team there is and we are here to help. YOU can DO this!

    Oh by the way...have you ever tried Fried cardboard, don't have much favor but a nice crunch....lol....Live life today.

    Remember: By Endurance we conquer-Shackleton

    Thank you. My health matters now so I'm changing what I eat for a way of life instead of another diet plan. I like my new eating habits that I can stick too
