So I began this journey, I will call it, on January 2nd. I call it a journey because the word diet means short lived. I have tried all sorts of diets and gimmicks, but alas my ASS is still way too big. Well I researched many new ways to eat and decided I would try the Sugar Busters method. Now this way of eating is really for people with diabetis, but the way of eating just made sense to me. My jump start was a New Years Day party at my parents' home. All of my family was there and at the end of a LONG week filled with FOOD, FOOD, and more FOOD, we were all feeling puffy! So it began, the family biggest loser contest. Well we all got weighed in. I honestly could not believe how much I was at! If my family was not around I would have cried. Now I would not allow anyone to see my number. I folded my paper up and put it in the bag with the rest. They were to be hidden until Easter Sunday when we would all meet again and see who had lost the biggest percentage. So began my journey and I was taking my husband and son along for the ride. No more special diet cooking for just me while they ate all the carbs and sweets they wanted. I needed full support and they were on board. Well this photo (bad one) was taken of hubby and I in November for our Anniversary. Now I am NOT one for loving my photo being taken, but this one really was GROSS!, but that did not jump start my journey as you can tell it took 2 more months.
