The Sunshine Is Back

Hello, and welcome to a bit of sunshine!
After tracking food, daily excersize and a positive attitude I dropped 70+ pounds. That was 3 years ago.

I felt great, looked great, had the world by the tail.

Then, for some unknown reason, I stopped Spark People. I stopped tracking my intake, stopped the daily exersize and began the "old" bad habits. Why? All I can do is shake my head in wonder......

As of today, 9/1/2012, I am back, and on track. It took me regaining 60 pounds before I looked in the mirror and did not recognize who was looking back..and I didn't like what and who I saw.

I am here with commitment, fortitude, positive attitude and the INTENT to succeed, once again.

I think Harper's no carbs after lunch would be starchy and sugary carbs. Fruit, grains, potatoes, corn, winter squash, etc. would be on the list. Broccoli, greens, green beans, etc. would be acceptable carbs. Lean and green after lunch he says. I'm finding his book very interesting and informational.

Thanks for your comment about the butternut squash. Eat them I will. We got 20 of them from our garden this year, some of them are huge! But I'm leaning towards Bob Harper's Skinny Rule of no carbs after lunch, so wasn't sure if they would be considered a carb. I now have the book in hand and see that he does consider winter squash a carb.

Have a healthy week.

Hi Tina - I had to put the tiara on my page manually.....I once edited my SP and clicked on "manage my goodies" and now they don't automatically go on my page when I get a new one. I have no idea why or how to change, so I just manually do it when I think of it.

Thanks again for making me feel like a queen!!
