Ups and downs 2011 - 2014

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

I looked in my book I have written in since 2011 – on and off
Here I write when I have gone up or down in weight and about why..
In 2011 I weighed less
I went on a rinsing smoothie diet for a week where I used a blender
Rather than making juice to keep the fibers. Lost 4 kg emoticon
I wrote about which ceramic I made and what kind of glazes I put on and how I made them. I wrote about exhibiting plans/ Publicity/ Courses to make
------------------------- Focusing on ceramics rather than food is Good emoticon
Being with people where there is cakes and candy put in front of the nose is dangerous
Visiting my mother who has lots nuts and peanut butter is dangerous
When I eat the wrong things at people it is because there are not better choices
----- Here I have to bring self-defense food emoticon
When I eat the wrong things at my mother it is because I am bored
A good thing to do would be to bring my swimming suit and go swinging in a public pool some blocks away. This would also please my mothers conscience emoticon
October 2012 I weighed 90.3 kg with fat percent 33.7
Now I weigh about 95 kg and fatpercent is about 34.5
After I had been over 94 kg – I went down to 90.9 kg , 34.6 fatpercent march 2013 after I had been very conscious about weight and made a competition with my neighbor.
------------------------------ Competition is good emoticon
Sometimes I forget to take my medicine Eltroxin against to low metabolism. Then I put 1-1― kg on in 1 day
30th march 2013 I was over 96 kg and 17th of April I was 90.7 kg. Between these dates I have been conscious about exercise. emoticon
It is also water I have lost as I did not drink enough
Minus water emoticon
22nd may I was as slender as 89.5 kg with fatpercent down to 33.0 emoticon
In the period before I have been conscious about getting enough exercise emoticon
Then I went up to around 92 kg . mainly because of eating nuts or cakes or peanut butter
And this spring and summer I had a job that meant I did not have the same possibility of exercising with rowing and bicycling
In the middle of August I was 91.9 kg 33.6 fatpercent.
Then I got lunatic of working the whole summer with practically no free time and took some strong medicine in order to avoid hospitalization. This I succeeded. emoticon
I think I also ate wrong. In one week I came up to 101 kg. I have never been so fat before
Well – now I am about 95 kg.
Looking at my past gives me hope. emoticon
I think I will go and talk to my neighbor about a new competition.

Hope to be more positive to myself

Monday, December 08, 2014

This weekend I talked with a lady who has lost 7 kg from august to this december
She told she writes in a book when she has said no to something fattening - either to herself or to others.
She also has found that it gives benefit to make good food for herself

This makes sense to me. Instead of the wipe I give myself by writing in a book every time I do not make exercise and eat the wrong things has made me sick and tired of trying to loose weight.

I find it fun to track the exercise I do. Tracking when I DID NOT fall into the usual traps may be much more successful than wiping myself and maybe even finding a delight in "being bad"!
My fat history: The most of my life I have been OK slender. When I was 19 years old I had gained weight after a psychological sickness and hospitalisation where exercise was prevented for ― year. At that time I succeeded in losing 13 kg in 1― year and maintained my weight for more than 30 years. But when I was 40 I was hospitalized again and put on 20 kg as my metabolism got too low as a result of medication. I havenīt been able to get slender again. It is more difficult after the age of 40. I have succeeded loosing 10 kg but put on 15 right after so this also takes away my motivation of loosing weight. ..Comments are welcome... emoticon
11th december:
Actually I find it more positive to focus on YES! Yes to drink tea or water with lemon juice in stead of alcohol. - I find it irritating when there only are 2 options at a meeting: alcohol or cofee. I donīt like cofee and alcohol is a bad idear for many reasons.
And when I go to a supermarket it is an exepttion that I buy unhealthy food. Just looking at the package and seeing how many calories it contains usually takes away my temtation.
Left is eating too much..
I have gotten a lot better at exercising.
Hmm - One temptation is left: The computer!!

    You did a great job! The last 4 days have been an American Holiday weekend, and I ate my way through it, but you have inspired me to resist temptation in the next few days.

On page 31

Friday, November 28, 2014

I was on page 31 out of 99 on the leaderboard of trivia to day.
I find that quite good as some of the questions are impossible to answer when you donīt know this or that kind of food that you only can buy in US.
Luckily I havenīt been touched by all the sicknesses mentioned inTrivia game
so I give myself a emoticon

Do all grains and grain-based foods contain gluten?

Friday, November 28, 2014

No –
Wheat (all types, including durum, einkorn, faro, kamut, semolina and spelt), barley, rye and certain processed oats all contain a protein called gluten, and all foods made from these grains (most flours, cereals, breads, pastas, crackers and cookies) contain gluten, too. Not all grains contain gluten, however. Amaranth, arrowroot, buckwheat, cassava (manioc), corn, flax, indian rice grass (montina), Job's tears, millet, finger millet (ragi), potatoes, quinoa, rice, sago, sorghum, soy, tapioca, tef (teff), wild rice and yucca are naturally gluten-free.
Hmm - I donīt know all those grains. But corn, potatoe and rice and quinoa I see as "normal" together with other food. Could be interesting to try making bread without gluten as my stomach has been -strange- for quite a bit of time..
