And once again I start

Monday, January 27, 2014

My New Years Resolutions seem to bite the dust earlier than usually this year. Something always seems to happen to derail me. But once more I start again! You only fail when you stop trying. I was using Food Lovers Fat Loss and using their site to track my food but they were really restrictive and I found that I was always hungry. I'm going to use their method of eating small meals every 3 hours to keep your metabolism going and try to eat as much protein as I can.

Now I'm back here to eat sensibly and exercise until this is gone. I know that even if I lose 5 pounds I'm going to feel much better. Even if I stop gorping sweets I'll feel much better! I feel like I would like to find some new teams and challenges to help change things up a bit. Any suggestions?

Here's to Healthy!!

    Nice to see you back. This journey is not an easy one that is for sure. We make a little progress and then we take some steps back. The main thing is you don't give up and that is what you have chosen to do. So well done. You want to make a change and you are about to do that I am sure. Make one little change, one day at a time. At the moment I am working on drinking my water. I am really bad at that, so I need to make it a habit. One thing at a time. emoticon , emoticon Good luck!

    Great to hear that you will continue to try. I have struggled with my resolutions this year also and Just got started (again) today. I am aware I have to make this happen, and it's people like you who give me the motivation to get up and try again.

Fed up!

Monday, April 15, 2013

I'm really discouraged. I cannot get the scale to move at all! I have gone a few weeks measuring my food, logging in and exercising and NOTHING! I just want this to leave! My coworker did Weighnot and lost weight really fast. It is very strict and expensive but I'm really tempted to do it. I'm just tired of trying.

    Thanks all! I appreciate the support! I feel better and have decided to try to stay away from prepared foods and sugar and be diligent. I also need to kick up the exercise more. I'll get there! Thanks for your help!

    Sandy, hang on in there, don't give up. I recently changed my diet a bit because I felt I was stuck in a rut and nothing seemed to be working for me. I have tried to cut out a lot of sugar foods and wheat. I feel so much better and have lost a few pounds along the way. It is slow going, but feeling less bloated makes me feel a lot better. I also found a good site called myfittnesspal.com. Easy to log in your food for the day and find out how many calories you are eating.

I hope some of this helps. emoticon

    My guess is that she will probably gain it back - you have to do something that you can sustain. It's better to learn what to do in the real world, without prepared foods or whatever the diet was that your co-worker did.

Don't give up. emoticon
You're doing the right stuff!

  Don't give up. Sometimes it takes the body a while to kick into higher metabolism mode. It WILL happen. Try measuring while you wait. You may not be losing weight because you are gaining muscle mass and this will show by using the measuring tape.

  Remember everyone is an individual......it happens at various timeframes. So go back to the basics....have you been tracking everything you eat and drinking the minimum of 64 oz of water oper day?

Give yourself a break as it has only been 2 weeks, your body is adjusting to the change and it will come off if you stick to your basics

  Don't give up and throw in the towel. I eat a plant based diet and eat meat ( chicken ) once a week. I try to stay away from sugar and grain as well. Just keep moving forward one step at a time. You have to find what works for you and it's going to take time. You didn't put the weight on overnight so it's going to take time to get the weight off. Tinker with the food and exercise and you will find your nitch.

Happy April Everyone!!

Monday, April 01, 2013

Another new month -- another fresh start! I'm getting serious now; I broke out my food scale! It's interesting to see how small the portions you are to be eating are. I am determined to do some type of exercise, several times each day. I can do this!!

Motivating Spark Team Wanted!

Monday, March 11, 2013

I'm looking for a Spark Team that is working hard on losing weight! Let me know which team you're on and why you love it so!!

  


This is it!!

Monday, March 11, 2013

I don't know how many times I've been at this spot. The point where you just feel awful -- bloated and lazy. It's hard to put my shoes on and climbing stairs makes me winded. I need to put my life back in the correct order.

I have forgotten about putting God first in my life and I've forgotten all about taking care of myself. I know that when I put these things in the right order the rest of life falls into place correctly. I will have more energy and more positivity.

I just watched "the Biggest Loser" and they did a video back to their skinny self. I'm going to blog here to remind myself why I want to do this.

I want to be healthy. I want to have energy. I want to be able to buy clothes and have them look good. I want people to look at me and say "Boy, you've lost weight!" I want to feel good about myself, about accomplishing my goals and about how good I look. I want to be able to hold my grandbaby (whch I get one). I want to be able to run with Ramona. I don't want to feel my age. I can do this!!
