Another Do over......

I am returning yet another time. I refuse to give up. I lost the weight and let it creep back up. I have begun to exercise, but the challenge for me is always food. I am always hungry. I have anxiety issues, so I have problems walking outside( there is not walking paths near me, some areas don't have sidewalks and I don't like walking near a lot of traffic). Right now I have stopped driving for the past year, because of my anxiety, so unless hubby drives me I am stuck, but I refuse to give up. ...

I start back to college in a few months and I need to be healthy enough to walk around campus and carry books. I can do this.

Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?

I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.

Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on!

Hey; check it out! I read that for people who have trouble losing weight around the waist that there are two kinds of healthy carbs you should be eating: beans and whole grains. No kidding!

In a study, obese men and women who were put on a heart-healthy diet lost more belly fat when their daily meals emphasized these two foods rather than refined grains.
After an 18-month study, all participants ended up losing about the same amount of weight. BUT the people eating diets rich in beans and whole grains had especially good results around their middles. And all that was required for extra middle melting was eating whole grains instead of refined grains and replacing two daily grain servings with a couple of servings of legumes -- like lentils, chickpeas, or beans. These changes created a low-glycemic-index diet that was satisfying, blood-sugar-balancing, and belly-fat blasting! Pretty cool, hunh?

Hi!

I'm just passing through this time with this strange bit of trivia...

You're not going to believe this, but I just read that chewing gum is a brain booster! Seriously! The Researchers at Northwestern University found that people who chew gum have increased blood flow to the brain and an increase in cognitive performance. Moreover, people who chew gum have less stress, which protects brain cells from stress related hormones. The researchers recommended chewing gum particularly when you have challenging mental work to do.

Who knew?

Hi again!

Just popping in to let you know I'm doing pretty good; well...better than usual! The New Year has started off hard, but it's going pretty good for me now and I'm really excited.

We have to learn to be our own best friends because we fall too easily into the trap of being our own worst enemies. ~Roderick Thorp, Rainbow Drive
