Thank you Lauren for the prayer and encouragement about walking. It is a prayer I will use whenever I feel I don't want to do it. It truely is a blessing to be able to get out there and walk.Thank you and God bless.
ps Yes, I did go down 7lbs in one night - it is amazing how much water we can hold onto sometimes. No wonder the rings seem to choke the fingers sometimes.
Thanks for the add and congrats on your success!
My plan? Well, I've always liked light and healthy food; my mother bought me a subscription to Cooking Light in 1996 and I've been a subscriber ever since. I cooked almost exclusively from it, but being single at the time, I would make a dish that served 6 people and eat all of it.
My fiance really was the one who made me look in the mirror and showed me that I needed to make a change. He loved me just the way I was, but wanted me to be healthier.
My three biggest changes I made was to join SP and start logging my food, I bought a food scale, and I discovered the "Flat Belly Diet" from Prevention. I don't know if it's working per se, but it did show me that I could eat 4 meals a day at 400 calories (or so) a piece and feel totally satisfied.
All that being said, I totally sabotaged myself last night too. I was good all day, but I made a recipe that had too much salt in it, then I had two servings but only wrote down one, and had too much halloween candy. Candy I shouldn't have bought in the first place but told myself that I could successfully portion control it. Oh well. Rereading your blog today reminds me that it's a new day and I can't dwell on last nights failures (or the +1.0 pounds on the scale this morning). 2534 days ago
