|Eat to Live Light Introduction
So many of you have asked me how I managed to get and then to stay so slim, and so here it is; I'm writing it all out for you. Different people may benefit more from some parts than others, but I'll bet that you will find something here that will help you in your quest for a lighter you.
"The second day of a diet is always easier than the first. By the second day you're off it."
First, a little about me: I was born on 10/25/56, and I enjoy good health, though I started this diet when I was NOT in such great health.
I was 42 years old and 142 lbs when I began this, in early March, 1998. I got to 120 by mid-June, lost a little more and since then, I have maintained at between 116 and 119.
I had been a "yo-yo dieter" my whole life, since about age 12 or 13, fluctuating as much as 15 or 20 pounds every several months. My new practices have ended that cycling and will enable me to maintain my weight forever, barring some illness or something.
Several people I know have read these ideas of mine and have put them to use and all have been successful so far, one woman having already lost 20 pounds since Thanksgiving! When you lose some weight, I'll happily print your story here, your photo if you want, and a link to your website!
