I'm doing a low carb, high fat, moderate protein daily intake of food. Am tracking my food (the good & bad) daily. The pounds are coming off & my body mass is shrinking! I feel better mentally & physically!

6/13/14 ~ Love how I am feeling. Enjoying life and laughing more. Weight loss (57 lbs gone) is really noticeable now. People who know me when I was heavier~ now don't recognize me unless they take a 2nd look.

7/4/14 ~ Maintaining my current weight loss & enjoying the summer. Swimming in the lake and being outdoors.

Got busy, that's an excuse. Honestly, I just got frustrated tracking calories and exercise.
I still track my calories, but usually in a notebook in the kitchen.
I have slacked on exercise, I admit it.
I'm going to try to start logging in every day again. It really does help me stay on track with the exercise minutes.
Most importantly, though, I'm sorry I wasn't here for you.
The loss of a loved one is hard.
Please know I am sending you peaceful, hopeful thoughts.
Your Spark friend, Quin emoticon

Vicky,
Wow, I dropped another pound! emoticon And I seem to have more energy too. emoticon
I started the Great Lakes gelatin on Sunday. I am also cutting down on my carbs and increasing my fats. Thank you so much for sharing what is working for you, it seems to be working for me too. emoticon
Have a wonderful Friday emoticon
Your friend,

So do you do a Carb cycling? I've been reading about Palo and Carb cycling, trying to find something I can live with. What is this Great Lakes Gelatin?
