I'm sorry I haven't posted here in a while.  
I thought I would show you a pic of how I looked about seven years ago at around 200 pounds.

Here I am a couple of years ago.

I have kept about 50 pounds off for the past five years.
The changes I've made were not easy.  The first thing that had to happen was God broke that thing in me that kept me eating all the time.  You can read my first post on this blog to see what I'm talking about.
I cut out sugar, almost totally, but I still have a treat from time to time.  This is the single hardest change to make.  But I eat honey, stevia, succanat, molassas, and agave nectar instead.  
I don't eat fast food anymore, except for an occasional Chick-fil-a.
I try to eat naturally, and organic when I can.  But I eat butter and chips and cheese, (I just prefer the natural kind without antibiotics and hormones and preservatives.
I've already told you about the trans fats and I think that cutting those out goes a long way.
The bottom line really is the sugar and the fact that I am treating my liver better by not running so much junk through it.
Anyway, If you are struggling, I would suggest starting with the sugar.  Cold turkey is the only way.  And it will be tough.  But if you want to do it, I will pray for you through it!  Once you've conquered that, the rest will be much easier.
And if you're like me and food controls you instead of the other way around, then pray for God to deliver you.  He will.  And it is wonderful to be free of that!
