I am not a professional dietitian. I am not a professional trainer. I am not a fitness professional. I am just a fat boy, diagnosed with HIGH CHOLESTEROL, high other blood stuffs, enlarged liver and a fatty liver. I was told, you have to change your life style, and it was a matter of life.
So, I have changed the way I eat, I have changed the way I think and am trying to reduce my size. And, it is working. Since Thanksgiving, I have have lost 26 pounds. From 288 to 263. So, I must be doing something right.
So, I have made this a project and I hope to share what I am learning as "WE" go along.
I have noticed that everyone has advise and ways to become healthier and fitter. But, I can't do all that calorie counting, and carb watching. Mine is simple. NO FATS and NO SUGARS. What I eat, I don't have two plates full. My portions have gone to the size of my fist. And, I only drink black coffee, a little SKIM milk and water. LOTS OF WATER. And don't eat any of that processed JUNK. Eat lots of FRUIT and veggies. Fish, Turkey and Chicken.
I have made a hobby at finding, collecting and perfecting healthy recipes, that enjoy making, eating and passing onto others.
So, I started this blog in hopes that someone else can take the journey with Tracy and I. And, I hope that you have the success I have had so far.
Stay in the saddle, and if you fall off, dust yourself and get back on. It is all a mind game.
Good luck, and I approved this message....
