For the last 16 years, I have been completely unable to lose weight. No matter what I ate, no matter how much I exercised. I watched everything that went into my mouth, exercised diligently, and the only direction the scale went was up. I've tried everything....Weight Watchers, South Beach, you name it. Nothing. So now I am trying JJ Virgin and for the first time in 14 years, the scale is going the right way.

But like so many things before it, the scales stopped moving the right way and nothing I did seemed to make it go again. Then I heard about LCHF and the science convinced me. Will it continue to work....time will tell....

My Goals:
Once upon a time, I was a naturally thin person. I miss her and want her back.


My Program:
After trying everything, it seems that food intolerance was making me fat. I am doing the JJ Virgin program and for the first time in 14 years, I am losing weight...and then I wasn't....so now I am finding success with LCHF.



Personal Information:
My life in a nutshell: born in North Dakota, raised in California for most of my growing up years. Went into the Navy right out of High School and was a Reactor Operator for my 6 1/2 years. Went to college, majored in history, became a stay-at-home mom and homeschooled three children from kindergarten until they left for college. (I have a couple of years left before the youngest leaves.) I just wrapped up a masters in pastoral studies and am a chaplain for the Port of Houston and am looking at hospice chaplaincy in the long term.

    MIAJOEB, nope, I am not from England. I just had promised my daughter a special mother-daughter trip for my first summer with no summer school in 4 years. She picked a trip across England. It's called the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk and goes from St. Bees on the Irish Sea to Robin Hood Bay on the North Sea. It was lots and lots of fun!
