i get excited when i see someone took the time to comment on my page or my blogs. it was appreciated a lot. your kind words have potency. i wish you similiar success.
i have been doing the research for about 3 years now, maybe coming up on 4. if you read any of my other blogs you'll see plenty evidence of that.
just a couple years ago i got down to 240 lbs and my vibration was a lot higher, my confidence was higher, my clothes were sizes smaller, i felt like sharing and bragging more in a tasteful manner.
we had a death in the family which was a huge stressor, and i got a new job another new stressor and the convenience lifestyle mistakes took their toll. i made some good and bad decisions with food along the way and lost my momentum.
now i find myself over 300 lbs once more, even when i was a mere 25 lbs away from my goal now im about 85 lbs from my goal. maybe 95 away.
the point is im trying daily to regain my "why" my reason my passion my inner reason to make the right choices consistently to get those good results and gain upward spiral until it's easy and i crave doing the right stuff all the time.
im saying all this because it appears some of the biggest issue turns out to be hormones. they are like chemicals that run around and tell everybody what to do. they tell the body to either store up fat, or burn it off. so there's really no point in going against a hormone that tells the body to store fat, we'll just get frustrated and fall deeper. SO i'm trying to get a handle on this hormone thing. i'm hearing eat more healthy food, and more of it, and resistance train with heavy weights for short intense time then rest. h.i.i.t. and rebound and walk or dance seems to be good, and as much yoga and stretching as you want. these things change the hormones and then change the results and the body starts to transform again. so that's what im trying to do or hope that im trying to do.
i know i can get to my goal, it's just really really hard because my tastebuds right now crave the bad food. so im using my research and experience and trying to concoct all these different little methods until something works. like green tea to increase insulin sensitivity, or apple cider vinegar to thwart candida and tulsi(holy basil) tea to also stop candida. sometimes there's just times i want pizza or chips or ice cream. and that's really annoying because it slows my progress down. some of the best foods are paleo or raw fruit and veg, big salads, teas, and smoothies.
but this weekend the rebounding really did help a lot.
Thank you for stopping by my blog! My daughter (13) generally has very good eating habits, but she and I agree that we could do a better job of working more fresh produce into our daily diets. 1117 days ago
