Weight loss... it doesn't take a miracle!

Let me go off topic on the Miracles & Moments of Grace blog just for today. Between titles in this series, I wrote a book of weight loss success stories. I know, I know. It sounds trendy, trivial. But for me, weight loss was life-changing, and I want everyone to experience the, well... the miracle.

My book, How We Did It is on sale right now for just $2.99 for those who read on Kindles. Just $2.99 and you can hear from more than two dozen people who used every plan from Atkins to the Zone to succeed.

It doesn't take a miracle to lose weight. It takes determination and hard work. There, I said it. There's no magic pill. Reading blog after blog of people who wanted to lose weight but were struggling, I decided that instead, I wanted to talk to people who had succeeded. They'd have the answers, right?

Right! And I soon learned that there's no one right answer. After talking to those who had succeeded at losing anywhere from 20 pounds to 220 pounds, I found that the right answer depends on many variables. The bottom line is that you have to choose a plan that is not so much a diet but a way of eating and exercising that you can maintain for life.

And life without those extra pounds is grand! I made healthier choices at the table and swam laps to lose my 30 pounds. And I still make healthy choices and swim laps nine years later. "Dance with the one that brung ya," said one person in my book. Wise words indeed!
