I really liked the last paragraph...congrats...so many us expect perfection through our journey and scold ourselves instead of reinforcing positivity...very inspirational.

Cool Congratulations Gabrielle!

Gabrielle, Your story is not only beautiful, but apparently, so are you; wise, loving and strong; very good writer, too! Congratulations on a complete success! My lesson in life to you is to moderate yourself, i.e., set your sites to stay in the middle of life. Be moderate. "Know your true limits and stay within those limits". Succeed at what is important and you, dear, are important!

Hi,
I am a newbie, just started back this week. Any tips to how you made the plan work for you? I am an African American woman as well. At 246 lbs, I am trying again, so that I can start having some babies soon. My PCOS seems to be under control, but I have not lost any real weight (more that 5-10 lbs) in over a year. So I'm trying the LC again. Help!!!

Gabrielle, thank-you for the story. I too want to loose 100 pounds and I will come back to this story when I'm feeling blue. And I will also atta girl me like you did as I tend to be mean to my own spirit too.
