Updated, 08/17/16...hi everyone, my name is Susan and I live in a super small town in Pennsylvania with my main squeeze Will, our little twins Evie and Layne, our sweet hound Josephine and our 2 stinky cats. I have been a fatsecret member for years, since 2011, but fell away from it for various reasons. Since that time, my weight launched up to my highest after having the twins, and 2 back surgeries, to 207. It sucked, my underwear were cutting me. I really hate that. So, I signed up for Healthy Wage, put my money where my mouth is, and bet I could lose 50 pounds in 7 months. Holy crow, I actually DID. :-) I won a ton of money and lost a lot of weight. My target weight is 135, so I still have some to go. As for diet, I don't ride any bandwagon. I know the following is true about myself: I eat a lot of lean meat (chicken, steaks, fish, etc...) I combine these meats with a lot of basic salads. These make up the bulk of my meals. Fast food and pop are gone from my life, I actually tried to eat some when I lost weight as a small reward and was quickly reminded that my body won't tolerate it anymore, I became violently ill trying to eat 3 different things. Starch, enriched flour, carbs, all kept to a minimum. I'm not against these things, they simply slow down my progress, flat out stall it, and they "up" my cravings, it's like opening a floodgate. My body really digs fruit. The more I eat it, the more weight I drop. I have done some interesting things this past year and learned a lot about what the body can respond to and endure, like weight cutting. I've practiced it a few times, interesting stuff. I'm an odd blend of extreme sarcasm, empathy, kindness, encouragement, and asshole. :-) Add me as a friend, I'm good for what ails ya. Also! I'm huge into the 1980s...
