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, 14 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 248. Last year, I lost almost 35 pounds using a paleo/keto blend. By the end of the Thanksgiving/Christmas gluttony, I started 2018 at 220, and decided to go full keto. I am now (2/20/2018) at 204, and thoroughly enjoying my keto way of life.

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!
