Welcome to me and my personal health and weight loss journal. My weight has gone up and down like a roller coaster ride through the years. I had the ‘gut feeling’ I was headed for trouble if I didn’t make some quick changes in my eating behavior. I didn’t want to succumb to a heart attack, stroke, diabetes or cancer.
Fortunately for me, I lost fifty pounds in the nick of time simply by changing which foods I ate. I went from 205+ lbs. way down to 158 lbs..
My blood pressure decreased to 100/60, my energy skyrocketed and I began feeling a lot healthier. I haven’t gained a single pound back unlike many of those fad diets you see on TV.

I knew I was on to something big when I dropped fifty pounds. My weight problem was due to the ‘standard American diet’ we all have grown to love.
As a result of healthier eating, I haven’t been to the doctor in years and no longer suffer from gout and rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. So, the purpose of Weight Loss Blogging changed. This site isn’t about only weight loss, because as I ate healthier I not only lost weight, I began feeling better and my health improved in general.
Note- contact your doctor before you change your diet. Do not attempt self diagnosis and cure yourself strictly through diet. It is no substitute for a physician’s care. Go to How I lost 50 pounds eating more.
