A PEBB member learns that one small change leads to ongoing success.
Six years ago, I was 45 pounds overweight. I was trying all kinds of diets and getting frustrated because nothing seemed to work.
After reading an article on soft drinks, I decided to cut out all soft drinks and fancy coffees.
With just this one change, I lost 20 pounds in two months.
This encouraged me. I started eating more balanced meals, with each serving the size of my palm. I also started walking three times a week.
I am happy to say I lost the next 25 pounds, am at the weight I should be and am able to keep it there.
I have an occasional soft drink and fancy coffee. I have occasional snacks, but keep them to a minimal portion. Now I eat what I want – only in reasonable amounts – and am still maintaining my weight.
