Aloha mai kākou👋🏽

Summer 2019 marked my 59th year and I started thinking about getting healthier and losing weight to improve the quality of my life AND to be able to better help my aging parents. And so my journey began on Noom in July, then continued on FatSecret in August. My goal was to lose 40 pounds by November, but my journey started slow and took longer than I expected. I tried different things along the way until I found what worked for me.

I celebrated my 61st this year and I feel and look healthier in maintenance since May 2020! I eat well (no deprivation because taste is everything!) and supplement good food with multivitamins, minerals, immune system boosters, and collagen. At 5'0", I went from 142 to 98-99 pounds (105-107 in maintenance with zumba toning), size 6-8 to size 0-2, and 255 to 142 overall cholesterol; I have the kidneys of a teenager, better flexibility/mobility, more energy/focus, and less joint/muscle pain.

I learned so much about intuitive and mindful eating, meal preparation and presentation, non-scale victories, and more from other FS members with successful weight loss/management stories, who shared not only their personal journeys, but more importantly, scientifically-based information. If there was a down side to FS, then it came in the form of targeted attacks fueled by histrionic, unstable, and vulgar personalities with a social media mob mentality. I learned to pay attention to consistent, focused, and health-minded members and scroll past and ignore certain members, their posts, and their comments on other posts.

We all deserve to live our best lives! I appreciate the lessons learned - good, bad, and ugly - from each/all of you. Mahalo for blessing, encouraging, and inspiring me with your virtual care, communication, and support!
