"It’s not about being PERFECT. It’s about being informed, knowledgeable and conscious of the food choices we make and doing it with willingness and confidence" -Angela Jones
Are you ready for a change??
It is inevitable. We all must experience it in some form or fashion and on many occasions in our lives.
Sometimes change is pleasant. Sometimes change is painful. Some changes we initiate ourselves while other times it is thrust upon us.
This ultimately determines how we view change. That is why making the decision to change your lifestyle, change your eating habits, and change your health is something only YOU can do!
Family can suggest it, your healthcare provider can prescribe it, and your friends can invite you to participate with them in it but YOU must make the decision to change or else you will not succeed.
This brings me to the first step in the process of successful weight loss, successful lifestyle modification, and successful maintenance:

I finally saw Angela Jones, APRN, on February 2, 2015. Angie is a nurse practioner (although I'll call her my "doctor" just 'cause it's easier to type). She specializes in weight loss and is also a health coach. I told her about the shot and not qualifying for diet pills because of prior heart issues. She did an EKG and said my heart looked good. We decided that I would continue what I had been doing. I left her office that day feeling like I had an ally in my fight...So, almost 7 months into my journey... I am making healthier decisions about what I eat and drink, I am being more active, and I have lost over 60 pounds. If you see me out and about, you'll see that I am still fat. I still walk with a cane. I'm not where I want to be, but I AM MAKING PROGRESS! And I'm happy with that.
