I'm on Fitocracy too! Get points and "power up" just for working out! Join at http://ftcy.co/HKTse3 and look for the SparkPeople team!

I often follow Dr. Joshi's Holistic Detox. I am currently keeping his principles in mind while working to lose weight before summer holidays! This means I eat natural foods whenever possible, by avoiding artificial sweeteners, additives and most processed or packaged foods. I have been a vegetarian since 2004 and I love experimental, gourmet vegetarian cooking.

I successfully lost 20 pounds very easily by tracking my calories and increasing my workouts. That was in 2010, and I got too comfortable with my success! I stopped tracking and replaced my workouts with language courses, but after a year realized that I'm at my happiest when I prioritize my health. I got back in the groove in the summer of 2011, and now in early 2012 I've met my weight loss goals and I'm building my strength and endurance! I owe my body to SparkPeople and my local YMCA... and trust me, if I can do it, you can too!

My Goals:
I have met and surpassed my initial weight loss goal. I have set an arbitrarily lower goal, but my primary focus is to keep building strength and cardiovascular endurance while nourishing my body with healthy foods.


My Program:
- Tracking every single calorie. Sometimes I go over my recommended daily limit, but I still enter every last bite in my tracker.

- Exercising. I am uncoordinated. I'm not naturally strong. I've never been good at sports. I feel awkward at the gym. But I go anyways. All the time.

    Loved your post in the non-meat protein thread on the message boards!

    I typically eat 75-120g of protein each day, too; people don't seem to realize that it IS possible to be vegetarian and get the right amount of protein/nutrients!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. We have 2 Soriana's in Guaymas and a big Ley's as well as a Walmart and Sams (neither up to US standards)
    The new supermarket is a smallish Ley's but way bigger than the Santa Rosa market. I get my fish and shrimp off the boats, my chicken at Sams and produce at whichever market has the nicest. I rarely buy "dry goods" - today being the exception as I had to bake cookies...

    How long (ago) were you in Gualajara?
