I honestly thought this weight would never come off .it has taken such a very long time for me to even lose 5 pounds and then when I would lose five pounds it seems like it would just come right back on me the following week .so I wasn't getting anywhere .I have never been a big eater everybody says that I eat like a bird. 170 pounds is the biggest I have ever been in my life. 170 pounds and only being 5.4. Of course a lot of my family and my fiance always said that I look great .but I need to lose this weight for me because I did not feel secure weighing that much. So for nine months except for on holidays I did not eat any desserts no candy no pop no junk food and that was very hard for me even though I do not eat a lot most of my calories came from purely sugar because I just I don't know I have a sweet tooth a very bad one and I always want sweets I have started using the artificial sweeteners in my coffee no sugar at all and it has taken me a very long time to lose this weight so I am just so proud of myself that I finally see results now wing 30 pounds less has taken a lot of pressure off of my ankles and my hips and my feet which hurt horribly I could hardly walk before I don't know if this lupus flare-up is starting to calm down a little bit or because this weight change is just making my ankles have less pressure and my feet have less pressure and my hips and back as well it could just purely be the weight loss or maybe my body is starting to go into remission that would just be awesome but either way I am happy and very proud of myself that I was able to lose this weight because I cannot physically exercise I tried and I just couldn't do it it was just so painful and I would be in pain for days so I did not want to force myself to go through that but a girl with a sweet tooth that loves chocolate it has been hard LOL here is a picture of me now after losing 30 pounds I still could lose about 15 pounds more but I am happy with as much as I have lost because I did not think that this was possible
