Hi, I’m Debbie Cousins. I’m 63-1/2 years old (my birthday is 6/20, in case anyone wants to send a gift!). Until I was 22 years old, I could eat as much as I wanted of ANYTHING I wanted to eat, and still maintained a slim and attractive figure. (Maybe someday I’ll post before/after pix.) Even when I was thin, though, I always thought I was too fat, and compared myself to everyone around me. I guess if you tell yourself something long enough, it becomes true. My all-time high weight was 302 pounds (at which time, 13 years ago, I had gastric bypass surgery). I lost over 100 pounds and was 185 for a MINUTE, before settling into a comfortable range between 195-205 for a couple of years. Then, I began to steadily go back up again – to a post-surgery high of 246. Last year, I managed to lose almost 35 pounds and keep OFF 20 of them as my 2017 total. I started this year at 220 (and my husband started at 218). We were very successful with a Paleo/Keto-type diet for several months last year, and that is what we started again on 1/1/18.

Happy Easter Everyone!
I’m so sorry that I JUST saw your comment to my 1/15 Journal Entry about starting the Christian Community Group! Please accept my apology. Since you’re not sharing your Journal entries or allowing Followers, I couldn’t respond directly to you, but I think I found a go-around by commenting on a post you made on Easter, 2016. Just in case that doesn’t work, I’m hoping you’ll see this response here! Whatcha waiting for? Just go to your FatSecret Home page, click on FIND GROUPS, and enter “Christian Community” in the Group Search Keyword box. We'd be most honored to have you join us!
