Lisa, what motivated me was that I wanted to feel better and look better and not be panting when going up steps and walk with ease. I have had weight problems since fifth grade and I'm now 62 years old. It's not like I sat around eating all day long, either. But, I was eating wrong.
Once I started counting carbs, I saw it was easy and I also started seeing my weight drop. I would weigh myself every day. Sometimes I could go several weeks without a drop in weight and then lose five pounds. So, I never gave up.
Right below my name you will see a picture of an envelope. Click on that and email me and I'll send you what I did...and am still doing. You will NOT be hungry and you can enjoy all things with moderation. This has been good for me and I'm not on a diet, either!
