This is my January 2015 update. after about two years on this journey to be healthy I'm 60 pounds lighter and in better shape. I still have a long ways to go on the fitness and it will be a lifetime to keep that fitness and weight. I used have chronic pain and what a difference!!

This journey has changed my life in so many positive ways. It's not just a weight loss journey but one to face all your demons and in the end be a more positive person feeling good about yourself and your world.

I love to cook all kinds of natural foods and delve into many cuisines. I'm a leftover health food nut from the 70's who has always loved exploring cusines from all over the globe. There are all sorts of interesting foods to try. I've been busy exploring vegetarian dishes from many parts of the world, I've discovered some new favorites and ingredients that are new to me.

I work full time as a customer service rep for a mutual fund company, a mentally exhausting desk job. Not a dream job but it pays the bills and has terrific benefits.

I am currently single 65 yo with 9 grandchildren, 1 great granddaughter, and another grandson due in June. I spend alot of time at grandkids sports events and in the summer attending mud runs as one daughter and her husband race and fishing for catfish with another son-in-law.

I'm slowly remodeling my house and most of the year work on my yard and gardens, one of these days I'll get both so I'm happy with them. It's part of my journey to feel good about my life. I'm a professional longarm quilt artist but my little business (used to be fulltime) is on hold while I concentrate on my remodel. Hoping to get back to my passion my the end of the year.

I live with a chatty and very onery Quaker Parrot, a 9yr old pom mix male dog who thinks he's a big dog, and a little girl boston terrier mix born 3-31-13. She's a very active character-wish I had her almost never ending energy.

SABOTAGE! Is any one else running Into this?
Hopefully it will work for you! The doc's words were my incentive any time I would go astray of my plan. My cane hangs in my bathroom as a daily reminder to not go back to my old ways. A pool would be great! I couldn't fit the dues in my budget for the gym nearby with a pool.

SABOTAGE! Is any one else running Into this?
my ortho doc threatened me with a looming knee replacement unless I lost weight and started doing both cardio and strength training, I had days I could hardly walk, limped constantly. 60 pounds lighter and working out, no more cane, pain is rare, I'm doing great. Exercise in mandatory for life.

Net Carbs
Agreed, Niel, I find it interesting the net carbs when I eat plant based all day.
