Here’s a post GreenQueen made at camp on Dec 28th, our 10th Year Anniversary:
Just wanted to check in and say Congratulations on your 10-year anniversary.
Consider me a success story. I started at 234 and my goal was 160. I started in October of 2013. Two years later I am 162 this morning, two pounds over goal. This is the first time in my life I have kept my weight loss off for so long. It’s been about a year and a half since I reached goal.
Eating right and daily walking are what keep me at goal. Once I embraced the Fat Brain Lies and succumbed to the idea that I would have to walk daily for the rest of my life, Maintenance became second nature. I”m not saying every day is easy, but it certainly doable. I finally after all these years realize that nothing tastes as good as thin feels.
Thank you, Carlene, for helping me deal with my food issues and learn to live my life rather than spending my days on the couch watching tv and eating junk.
And thank you to all my fellow Campers who provided support and encouragement along my journey.
