It was actually a couple things. First, I actually went on a spiritual fast in the beginning whic kicked off the loss. It actually wasnt intended for weight loss, but right after is when the doctor told me about my weight, so it lined up perfectly.
Then, I just started to change my habits because I was eating everything in site. And it wasnt just quantity, it was quality because I loved unhealthy stuff. Too much beef, creams, soda and junk food. Once I cut out or modified some of those things, the rest just fell in line.
Of course being able to accurately see what I was eating through my journals helped also. I haven't even started exercising yet so I am excited about the potential.
