unhappy since 10 years old.

with listening to experts and trying every plan out there and not seeing long

I now eat predominately whole foods, I pretty much eliminated processed foods
and heavy starches.
What was most challenging about losing weight?
the beginning were cravings, but I also had other health issues as well. As time
went on my challenges were plateaus and boredom with food choices and also exercise.

started to see results within a month of dedication.

About 2 years.

1.5 years and its not coming back.
How has your life changed now that you've lost weight?
I am totally free in my mind. I can choose what I want to eat any where I go
and not care about anyone's opinions or comments. I have no problem eating differently
from others. I am totally pleased and ok with that. It excites me to go from a
size 22 to a size 4/6 and I am not holding my breath either.
