Hi, I’m Debbie Cousins. [I'm gonna put my "P.S." FIRST as a disclaimer: I do NOT look like the picture! It was taken almost 2 years ago, but it was at Sephora after a 1-hour makeover!] I’m 66 years old. 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. 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, in 2006, 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 about 8 years. Then, I began to steadily go back up again – to a post-surgery high of 248. A couple years ago, I lost about 35 pounds using a paleo/keto blend. By the end of the Thanksgiving/Christmas gluttony, I started 2018 at 220, and had a good year of maintenance and weight stabilization. Started 2019 at 194, and met my first goal of 175 on April 4th, 2019! After that, I went totally hog-wild and pig-crazy, and shot back up to 257.5 before starting to turn things around December 27, 2020.

Currently, I am not doing Keto, but am counting calories. This allows me to have fruit and occasional bread -- as long as it can fit in my 2,000-2,250 range, it's "legal" for me to have. Lost 3.5 pounds my first week of doing this. When I stop losing that that RDI, I'll switch to 1,800-2,000.

Philippians 3:12-14 (Easy-to-Read Version - ERV):

"I don’t mean that I am exactly what God wants me to be. I have not yet reached that goal. But I continue trying to reach it and make it mine. That’s what Christ Jesus wants me to do. It is the reason He made me His. Brothers and sisters, I know that I still have a long way to go. But there is one thing I do: I forget what is in the past and try as hard as I can to reach the goal before me. I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven."

Accepting Request to Follow
Hmmm. I have mine set up to automatically accept follow requests. Perhaps if you go into Settings and change your preference to automatically approve follow requests it will allow those you have to go through, and then you can change it back -- or leave it open unless you are getting too many requests.

Hello :-)
@Mikie, I can't seem to find how to post on your wall, so I will address you here. CONGRATULATIONS on making the decision to join the "Daily Accountability 2019-#1" Challenge!!! So far, it's just the two of us, but I'm praying there will be lots more people who find it and feel led to participate. I did several of these last year, and had 20+ people in most of the groups. Most of us can do "the right thing" for a week. Almost ALL of us can do it for one DAY! That's the beauty of the DAILY Mini-Goals! I wish you much success, and will be encouraging you along your journey!

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!
