A lot has happened in my life since 2011.
I was nursing my dying husband. He finally passed away in January of 2013 and I had to start a new life. The first thing I did was try to get myself healthy. I've never been good at dieting I tried every diet out there and I'd lose as much as 17 lbs. then gain it all back within 6 months. So, my new plan was to only try to lose 2 lbs a month. I did that by always leaving at least 2 Tlbsp. of food on my plate at every meal. I also joined a gym and worked out twice a week. That's it and I lost 35 lbs over the next two years...and since then, I've been maintaining that weight. So here I am in 2016 ready to start my new life:
