Deva's Path to Health

There is always the option to take the quick direct route and the long scenic path. For weightloss we are always hoping for the quick direct route, but I have come to find my path is not as direct as I would like.

Occasionally I also wander off the path, and get seemingly lost......

But, I always find my way back. And in the end the most important thing is to continue down the path.

Occasionally I also wander off the path, and get seemingly lost......

But, I always find my way back. And in the end the most important thing is to continue down the path.

November 2010, I realized I was off the path again and knew I had to try something very different. I enrolled in an 82 week weight management program which has 16 weeks of just eating nutritional shakes and bars. I have never wanted to do something like this before, but I really felt I needed to reboot my system and not having and food for a couple of months seemed like a good plan.

I am hopeful this will leave me with renewed faith in my resolve, and ready to add back only the food that I know will help me succeed.

Update: I started the weight management program through Kaiser on January 27, 2011. I have lost 86 pounds in less than I year, and I plan to do the same thing this year!

I spent the last 3 month just maintaining, (A feat in itself!) and I am back to active weight loss.

My gratitude towards finally finding a way that works for me cannot be expressed. I still have much to work out regarding consistent exercise and eating, but I really know this is happening..... and it fill me with such joy.

My Goals:
My very ambitious goal is to be in "One-derland" by April 15th

I would also like to go back to a vegetarian food plan and still have the amount of protein that keeps me healthy without too many carbs.




My Program:
My food plan basically consists of the main meals with optional snacks in the afternoon and evening.
I have an oatmeal pudding bar or Kashi GoLean for breakfast.
I usually swim for 50 minutes before lunch at least 3-5 times a week and then have a salad with chicken breast or a sandwich, either turkey or tuna salad with carrots and celery sticks.
My afternoon snack is usually a fruit and mozzarella stick. Dinner can be most anything, Rosemary chicken, fish, or turkey stuffed pepper with a veggie or salad.

From San Jose, CA.

Married 31 years, my husband David155 is also on SP.



Other Information:
I have been a meditator for many years, I also love kirtan and chanting.

I own a meditation island in Second Life. And I am recovering from the two years I have spent there!

I love scrapbooking and plan to do one for my weightloss story.
