Sharing a secret: from a size 14 to a 6 in a year

This is how I went from a size 12 sometimes 14 to a size 6.

About 10 years ago I started a new job and I was about a size 7/8 .  The job was stressful and I put on weight and I put it on quickly. I was sluggish and felt awful I carried that weight for at least 10 years and I figured well as you get older you will put on weight.  I always worked out and ate my vegetables and herbs but the weight stayed on. I don't even have pictures of myself from that time .  But last year after removing myself from  stressors I finally figured out the combination of food that worked for me .  My eating habits became very boring but I am much healthier.

coffee (can't let that go) or tea
steamed cabbage with onions garlic tomatoes or callaloo

more steamed vegetables
green bananas /sweet potatoes


Brown Rice and peas or plain brown rice
baked chicken

When I craved for something sweet  I would slice sweet potatoes and sprinkle cinnamon on them …
