I lost 55 lbs. It took almost fifty years gaining and losing weight to finally get off the most weight ever and it took a year and a half. Does that sound like a long time? I will tell you, the time flew! One reason it felt like it happened over night was because I was learning something new all of the time; how to shop differently, cook with ingredients I didn’t know existed and making new friends online who were following the same path. There is no doubt going on a weight loss and essentially, a change of lifestyle is much easier if you’re doing with others. I was lucky enough to have my husband follow along and even my kids try some things every now and then. I guess everyone took my proclamation seriously. LOL!

Struggling with weight loss has been a big part of my life. I am happy to say, now that I understand how the gut is affected by the food we eat and what we drink, losing weight is not such a struggle anymore. I truly wish more people will read the book The Plant Paradox by Dr. Steven Grundy and follow it as much as possible. It has been a G-d send to me and my family.
