Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am self employed, work with the elderly and hate the paper work that goes along with it. I procrastinate. Need to work on this area of my life. I am on the computer too much. avoiding house cleaning and paperwork. I like to go to facebook, forums, blogs and chat rooms, this is fun to me and helps in my remaining alcohol free. This area I need to work on as well.
I have said I have an addictive personality: food, alcohol, and internet.
A trifecta. Am working on all of thee areas. It is all about moderation.
Being bipolar I have a problem with extremes. I seek balance in my life.
I am pretty much content with how things are going. I have a sweet romantic husband who loves me unconditionally. Have a nice home to live in and a rewarding job. What more could I ask for?My thigh has healed and I need to start going back to the gym. This drinking has got to slow down!
I will not give up in this weight loss journey, nor this need to be AF.

Follow a low carb diet forever.(with some cheat days here and there!)
My goals are to lose weight slowly but surely it is coming off so slow. I am trying to follow a low carb diet, eating healthy lunches at our local health food store. I want to go to the gym on a regular basis.
I went 165 days alcohol free, which is a first! from aug12th to january 23rd 2014.
on january 1st 2016, I turned 53. I have a twin. WE celebrated our 50th by going on a cruise together with my older sister. WE had a great time. Married to a wonderful man of 19 years. no kids 2 cats, named hazel and hattie. They are alot of fun.
Live in Lafayette Louisiana since 2001, love it here.
I have my own small business, work with the elderly.
I enjoy spending time on the internet, posting on forums giving and receiving emotional support. Enjoy seeing the regular crowd at the health food store that I eat my lunch with every day. I used to eat by myself which was lonely. Trying to get to the gym more often need to find a more enjoyable activity. Hubby and I are big LOST fans, x-files and now downton abby. WE keep watching the reruns and enjoy this in the evenings. Don't really have any hobbies.

Hi, Bizi, sorry you're having a rough spell. Do you know why? Stress?
I don't recommend a water fast as I did it as a weight loss tool because you put the weight right back on. I did it when I was young, and on a spiritual quest. I like a balance

Whole30 is basically a 30 day elimination diet, where you cut out most of the foods that typically cause chronic inflammation, then slowly add them back one by one after the 30 days are up so you can figure out which foods trigger things like migraines. It is a way of figuring out the best nutrition plan for your personal needs.

IAMBIZI, I don't do fat fasts. My fat level is probably less than most on here. I also eat more protein. But giving up the carbs will do more for you than upping the fat.

No, I don't subtract fiber carbs. I do Keto form of low carb and find that if I start doing net carbs it will stall me or I will even gain. I eat very low carb (5-10g per day) so it's not as big a deal for me, but that's why I only eat 1 square of chocolate (5g carbs per square!, but like 2-3g fiber, which I don't count). hope this makes sense (I also limit my carbs to 7g per meal. I'm in a FB group and they recommend no more than 7g per meal so insulin doesn't spike and cause cravings or stalls)
