NEVER QUIT

I listened to Bill Phillips ( Body for Life and Transformation.com) on a video yesterday....he had a real visual of a days food and calorie count. Somehow...the light-bulb....ever so dim was immediately "brighter".
I'm the type of person who can go most of the day without eating and then once I start....in the late afternoon, I somehow, forget to stop....til 1am.
I'm retired, so don't get up til 9....and go to bed long after I've turned into a pumpkin.
Anyway....I got up ...

I'm retired, so don't get up til 9....and go to bed long after I've turned into a pumpkin.
Anyway....I got up this morning and made a daily menu out for today on my nutrition tracker....and with healthy meals and snacks I couldn't even come up to 1100 calories for the day.
Egg whites, Salmon, Chicken, Rice, Green beans, protein drink...
Sorry, no McDonald's hamburger, fries and small drink (1300 cal.).
Wow.....One meal versus a whole days worth....kind of an eye opener for me. Not that I eat McDonald's, but the sweets, chips and lots of carbs do play into my daily foods....so the Calories Do Add Up!!
I'm going to stick to this and see what kind of results I get after 2 weeks....if its good....I'll be on my way. I'm not a exercise nut, but do love to swim, So I'll try increasing my swimming to at least 2 to 3 times a week at the pool. Would really Love to lose these 100+ pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wish me luck !!

OK- January 1, 2012 - start 275#
April 24th - 265#
April 27th - 264#

Hi Terry, Just popping in to say hi. Been away for quite a long time, but I'm back a little more frequently now. How've you been doing? I'm okay but the last year was not so good. But everything is a whole lot better now and my life is LOTS different, but so much better. I still have another 25 pounds or so to lose, maybe a bit more... not sure. But I lost a whole bunch last summer because I was so stressed. Not really a good way to lose it, lol. I have gained a few back but I'm working at it again to lose it plus more. I hope you are doing well, and I do think of all my spark friends... Take care and have a fabulous weekend!

Joanna
