Five and a half years ago, I saw my weight creeping upward. My youngest was almost 2, and the “I’m going to lose the weight when he’s 1 no longer applied.” It was time for action. Memorial Day 2007 was the official day I decided to take over my life.
But at that time, I believed and thought I almost needed to starve myself to lose weight. I joined Spark people and realized I needed to eat differently, not starve myself.
I kept eating some of the same foods but in smaller quantities. It became a numbers game instead of a real lifestyle change. (I love math, so this was perfect for me.).
My biggest supporter was my maternal grandma. She and I would talk daily about life and what I would cook for supper.
By the time I was back at work, II was down almost 30 pounds and wearing the smallest pant size I had ever worn as an adult.
Then October of 2007 came, and my life completely changed forever. . . .
