I decided today to start a campaign at the GFA site to raise money for street children in India. I am donating $10 for every pound I lose. My starting weight for the campaign is 160, July 1, 2013. I have lost 40 lbs. since I started Sparkpeople six years ago. That is good but very slow. I hope to break my comfortable here mind set, speed up my weight loss, and go farther in losing weight than I would have originally dreamed.

It is pouring out today, so the garden will not need watering. The green beans have been wonderful this year. Today's weight: 159

The garden is doing well - acorn squash, peppers, various tomatoes, green beans, eggplants, corn, zucchini, and 3 sunflowers from last year's plants.
I am on mile 744 of the Walk to Rivendell challenge.
Weight today 161.5

I looked back over 2012, the year I complained to myself that all my walking was not working. I see, by checking at least one day per week, that I was tracking my food very infrequently. Often when I did, there was too much bread. Sometimes I was over my limit. Sometimes I only tracked breakfast and lunch. Where did that get me. No where. emoticon
When I joined the 2013 5% Winter to Spring Challenge, I began to track my food with some consistency. Results: I lost the 5.5 lbs in the 8 week challenge and 0.5 in the in between challenges weeks. Old habits die hard, but toast and coffee for breakfast is dead. I still use the Brownberry mulitgrain pockets for lunch or a slimwich. I think I was suffering from wheat belly and general lack of attention to the details of what I ate.

I started 2013 at 173 lbs and joined the Official January Jumpstart Challenge. I got moving, lost a couple of pounds, and won the Spark Cookbook,
By February I was making excuses to not do the videos anymore. Then I found the 2013 5% Winter to Spring Challenge.
My weigh in (2/23) was 171.
Week 1 (3/2): 170
Week 2 (3/9): 169
Week 3 (3/16): 169
Week 4 (3/23): 168
Week 5 (3/30): 167.5
Week 6 (4/6): 167.5
Week 7 (4/13): 168.0
Week 8 (4/20): 165.5

In between challenges:
4/27 - 165.0
5/4 - 165.0 I'm a slow loser even though I walk a lot of miles and stay under 1500 calories ( that's all healthy food choices.) Still I'm proud that I lost 5.5 lbs in the 8 week challenge.

It's a beautiful Saturday morning here. We planted the gardens yesterday.
I joined the 2013 Winter to Spring 5% Challenge.
While I did not make it to 5%, I lost weight with only a couple of plateaus.
Now I am in the 2013 Spring to Summer 5% Challenge.
This is the first weigh in and I lost one pound.

I'm not doing well on consistency here. My weight has actually gone up instead of down. I think it may be because I gave up coffee and ha ve been getting all my water's in. I might have been dehydrated before. I feel really good about the water. This has been hard for me for years. emoticon

Oops, I skipped journaling yesterday, but actually got in two walks. The first was 3.76 miles and the second was 4.1. Today, I walked to the library and back with a stop for a bean burrito as a reward. I have figured out a short walk I can repeat several times a day to keep me from taking fast food rest breaks. This should save calories and dollars. emoticon Will give it a try Monday to see if I can get 5 miles in that way.

I am 56 miles into walking and decided that I should make some notes on my progress.
Today I walked to the Coop and had a toasted nut coffee and oat bran muffin. Total 5.4 miles.
It did not seem as hard as last night's walk to the library and back which was only 4 miles total.
Perhaps it is because I walked in the morning.
