Secret?? No secret really. I cut back on my carbs. a lot,....like a lot, a lot. Yes, I still do eat bread, but it's a whole grain bread when I do. I don't eat the processed garbage food anymore,.... well,... hardly ever. Oh, do I still eat chocolate??? ABSOLUTELY!!! I am very smart about what passes my lips though.
It's summer time, so fruits and veggies are bountiful and I eat all but squash. Never could get past that taste. But hey, I don't like one out of a whole bunch. Find something you like. Every morning now it's coffee pineapple and cottage cheese. Lunch tomatoes and cucumbers, peppers, avocado and anything else that I can find.
I do eat protein. Good protein and drink plenty of water.
I've become more active, but am not obsessive about being so.
One thing, I didn't expect it to just fall off of my body. It took me awhile to put it on my body, so it's taken awhile to come back off.
Shopping has been fun,....especially the the intimate things.
I'm looking at maybe 20 more, but will assess how I feel and look when I start getting close to it.
ALSO,....My doctor is well aware of my loss and has had to adjust a certain medication I will have to take for the rest of my life. You MUST be very watchful about that, otherwise you can get into BIG trouble.
