Amy wrote: I have struggled with weight most of my life. Up and down but mostly up. I felt like I carried all the extra weight on my knees and hips.
They were hurting so bad, I knew it was time to find something that worked!
Being on certain meds for artificial heart valve, was one of my biggest concerns. I tried herbal dieting then just gave up. I lost my parents within 4 months of each other and divorce..all worked against me getting back on track. Went to Dr. Doll- Pollard and she was telling me about the new diet plan they had at SOGA. I thought "What the heck!” So I made an appointment and started the journey. Carrie gave me a report on how much water and what to eat. I gave up unsweetened tea all together. Water! Water! Water! I think is the key. After the first couple weeks, I did no real exercise. I think 7-8 lbs came off. I was impressed! Next weigh in...same thing. After getting 45 lbs off...It slowed down. So I added a couple extra workouts in my routine.. and now 53 lbs off!!! I’m thinking maybe try for another 10-15... knowing with summer coming I will be riding my bike more. I eat more vegetables now and try different ways of cooking them! I look at foods like cakes and such, thinking how long it will take me to work off those calories...and ask myself if it is worth eating? I’m thankful for the support Carrie and the others at SOGA have given me!
