I have never been one to try any of the fad diets or gimmicks. I just let the weight pile on and did nothing about it. 5 years ago I was at my heaviest (that I know of) and weighed 276. I lost 20 pounds that year and then forgot about it. A year and a half ago I got my mind in the right place and knew that I did not want to turn 50 looking the way I looked. I joined a gym, started tracking my food and changed the way I eat. It is a life-style change for me. This morning I was at 215 and nothing is going to stop me. I have always been a single mom and never dated. What do you know, I've started dating!! But I truly believe that you have to find what works for you. I can't preach that my way is the best way. It is for me, but we are all different! Good luck!
