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 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.

Is the calorie counter right?
Mine said 1800 here, everywhere else was 1200-1300 so I went with that. I can't even eat enough to get to 1800 calories!! Most days I can't get to 1200.

Weight loss diet plan
The Mediterranean plan can be a good one for life. My WOE actually falls pretty much into this plan. It's also very anti-inflammatory so if you have any health issues where inflammation is part of it that is a huge plus to you. I have both arthritis, asthma, and migraines all inflammatory they are all under better control.

Any Porridge suggestions?
Also roasted spelt flakes are delish! They look like oatmeal flakes but roasted. You can also cook any whole grains wheat, rye, barley, sorghum, ancient grains, and whole grain rice. just to name a few. Cook them ahead so they are easy to do in the am, 1 hour cooking time plus soaking time on the sorghum and wheat do not make for a quick breakfast. Sorghum has higher calories due to it's natural sugar content.

Nutrimost Resonant Frequency
Don't pay someone for you to lose weight. You can do it yourself by changing how you eat and exercise. There is no magic solution.

The "diet" industry is huge because they feed on people looking for the magic no work solution.
