Elly is back!!

Hello again after a long absence! I'm Elly, female, 29 years old (30 is around the corner, oh my gosh!!). Recently engaged, so now I have new motivation to get in shape!!

About a month ago, I got this mega-flu, and it changed my life.... that is, I lost so much weight, so fast, that instead of feeling miserable, it became a "blessing in disguise" as my grandmother would say. I simply analyzed WHAT I had been doing differently while ill, and tried to keep it going once I felt ...
Hello again after a long absence! I'm Elly, female, 29 years old (30 is around the corner, oh my gosh!!). Recently engaged, so now I have new motivation to get in shape!!

About a month ago, I got this mega-flu, and it changed my life.... that is, I lost so much weight, so fast, that instead of feeling miserable, it became a "blessing in disguise" as my grandmother would say. I simply analyzed WHAT I had been doing differently while ill, and tried to keep it going once I felt better! (So far I am consistently down about 10lbs in about a month...unprecedented for me!)

For me the 4 keys are: actually eating less (who knew!?!).... fasting in between meals, especially at night (it gives the body a chance to use fat for fuel).... cooking veggie-rich and tasty instead of eating out... and loosening the grip of sugar addiction. Oh and the 5th and perhaps biggest thing: weight loss has to start in your head! I had to have an "attitude adjustment" from spoiled and eating whatever I want, to putting simple food for fuel into the body.

That's enough for now - what I really want on here is connection with others... I already have the habit of weighing myself daily and logging all my food, so I'm getting on track pretty well so far... just encouragement from others is what I really want. I will do my best to be supportive too!

Wow, thank you so much for the very thoughtful comments you left on my page and my blog (about talking to my husband about my weight loss). You're right, he's super supportive of me in all things, and I know he just hasn't said anything to me because he can tell I'm not comfortable talking about it. He's a great guy and I'm glad he hasn't pushed me, but like you said, I think I'll feel better when I get it all out and open up to him.

LOL I love your profile picture. Baby elephants are SO cute! And congratulations on your weight loss success so far!! It sounds like you've got a really great attitude, so I look forward to cheering on your continued success! :)

I love your elephant picture! I love elephants, one of the biggest adventures here in Africa has been watching them in the wild!

Have fun with your challenge you just started, and let the pounds drop off!
Hugs
