I'm very thankful to You First for helping me lose 151 pounds with the Ideal Protein Protocol, and for the ongoing support in maintaining my healthy weight and lifestyle (link).
Let me also GIVE FACEBOOK SOME CREDIT!! Who would have thought that Facebook would be one of my biggest motivators to keep the pounds off?
Check out this memory of a joke I told 7 years ago on FB.
I developed a lot of jokes about being fat-- some of which got a few laughs in my stand up comedy act. I encouraged others to 'roast me' about it, too. It was a defense mechanism and was ALMOST my final admission of defeat. Fortunately, I stopped short of accepting being overweight for the rest of my life and took one more shot at losing the fat.
Plus, a trip to the emergency room in early 2017 kind of nudged me along, too.
I've been maintaining my healthy weight range for about a year as I learn to manage this new lifestyle. So I thought I'd share with you some of the ways Facebook reminds me of my past. Here are some photos Facebook springs on my with its 'memories' function, side by side with recent pics of me, especially the changes in my face.
I hope you find this captioned gallery as motivating as I do.
I spent about 20 years packing on pounds. That's a long time of becoming more and more miserable when I consider that it took me about 11 months to lose 151 pounds with You First/Ideal Protein.
I think that when I look at these photos side by side, I can see that these days, the smiles seem much more real. They sure feel that way to me. and if you struggle to lose weight, your smiles could feel that way for you, too.
