On September 2nd, 2011,  I started my last journey to lose weight at 209.6.  I hit 168.2 pounds on the scale this morning and it's stuck for two days now.  My goal is 155-160, I'm big framed and 5'6".

I have had to re-learn eating all over again.  Not living to eat, but eating to live.  I no longer eat unless I'm hungry.  I eat no sugar, no grains.  No more bread, pasta, white potatoes, rice.  I do eat low carb veggies, coconut oil, lots of spices, some kind of meat or fish and apples and oranges.    I eat NON-GMO, organic or local foods that stay with me during working hours away from home.  Staying away from junk carbs has helped that a considerably.  

I've had to trick myself into smaller portions by using smaller plates and bowls.  

I used to eat myself full before going to bed at night.  Now I eat a little bit of something, sometimes full fat organic yogurt with cinnamon, coconut and a bit of peanut butter...just enough to have something in my stomach before taking my 
5 ml of LDN.  Yes, I'm up to 5 ml now and doing well on it.

I was watching Dr Oz a few minutes ago.  They were saying that keeping your lager size clothes that no longer fit after weight loss, need to be gotten rid of because it gives us an excuse to fail and gives us an option B.  Makes sense to me.  I've always kept my fat clothes on the "other" side of the closet, but now it's time to get rid of them.  I can not afford to gain the weight back, health wise nor money wise!

Good bye, fat pants....hope to never see you again!


T-Jay just took these "after" photos of me.  To me I still look fat except for my stomach.  I guess, I'll always look fat to myself.

  1. i am super glad that you have lost not only a ton of weight, but have gained good eating habits and a new lesson in how to live your life in a very healthy manner! and i am thankful that you have taught me about LDN!!!

    all of that aside - yep - throw out them fat clothes. because the new Tango is a slim-fighting-machine...and you won't ever need the other clothes again. because of your conscious lifestyle choice.

    as for losing much more weight - you might be at your plateau. i think that you look fantastic. and i don't want you beating yourself up over 10 lousy pounds. due to our own personal body issues, we often don't "see" ourselves the way others do and can. i am glad that you can see the difference in your stomach because there is such a difference there! but there is a difference everywhere else too...you just can't see it.

    you look like the super-improved Tango to me and you do not look fat! you look fantastic! and i am very proud of you for all of your hard work!

    your friend,

  2. Kymber...thanks! You are such a sweetheart! :)

    Ha, yep...fat pants are in a plastic bag on their way out of here.

    It's just too bad that I waited all these years to put into practice what I already knew for such a long time....there are some foods that I HAVE to stay away from. There is no way around it without me gaining weight. I can not and will not let myself go again! I am determined!

    Right now it's okay for me not to lose more than a few ounces at a time....as long as I don't gain anything back.

    Thanks again....you are awesome my friend! :)

  4. hey - if Joey says you look great - well i think that's the end of it there!

    i am not a sweetheart...i like to think i tell it like it is. i do call a spade a spade. and i don't like "blowing sunshine up people's butts"...

    and honestly...i just can't think of a better way to tell you that you look great except to say that Joey says you look great. nothing more needs to be said eh?

    i am proud of you, ya know! and you are pretty awesome yourself!

    your friend,
