I tried eating different just a bit during break between Winter & Spring Challenge.
I thought I was eating healthier and was feeling great, but was gaining weight. A lot
I decided to eat like I was before and started losing again, quickly. Now I had to
out, WHAT HAPPENED?
I was getting worried, I was getting quiet, I was pulling away from posting my weights. I knew I had a problem.
I started searching through my notebooks, and pieces of paper that I wrote things on when I took notes when reading. WELL I found something that struck an interest: FOOD COMBINATIONS
Notes I had:
Wrong food Combinations
grain & sugar (oatmeal w/sugar? w fruit?mmmm)
starch + fat +sugar (cream of rice w/butter & sugar? or peanut butter & honey?)
nuts + grains (almonds & oatmeal or oatbran & walnut pieces?)
carbohydrates + alcohol (spaghetti dinner w glass of red wine?)
milk +meat (a meal followed with a glass of milk??)
protein + starch (beef, baked potato, corn?? tuna macaroni salad??)
protein + fruit (nuts & fruit together??)
starch + fruit (grapefruit followed by hashbrowns??)
Sounds like there is nothing left to eat RIGHT?
MY MISTAKE DURING BREAK, having smoothies with wrong combinations several times a day, thinking raw veggies, raw fruit, nuts, seeds, grain . Tasted
protein and veggies good together
starch and veggies good together
will continue later

I embarked a journey, in 2005 when my health was at it's worse. I was looked at, with disgust, with pity, with empathy, with questions (unasked).
I smiled, I greeted, and sometimes carried conversations, with these people. I didn't like, but I understood, as I also felt bad about my appearance, how I couldn't do certain things and unknowingly took a backseat in life, looking at it, through other people's eyes.
They say an alcoholic need to hit rock bottom, before picking oneself up, dusting off the rear and putting one foot in front of the other, to climb out from that rock.
I say people with all kinds of ADDICTIONS, need to do this. They need to want to live Life! It is HARD, but the desire to do so WINS!
One Diet Club,at a time. One new diet, on so many Mondays. One effort of exercising, that last, only for awhile. Time Passes, the room in booths at restaurants, shrunk and sometimes
no chairs were available, and had to leave. Did this kick the rear in fast gear? No, there were other restaurants, there was fast food.
Are My friends, eating friends? They WERE eating friends. NOW, the time has come in my life, when MY FRIEND-s, are friends, who DO! Most recent example: a friend who told me she was joining the Y, would I like to check it out and see if I would like to, also? I thought, and weighed the pros and cons that would happen, if I did.
Need to depend on another, for transportation there and back.
Would need to figure out what to wear there (genes & top & tennis shoes for exercising)
Now I know I love the pool, my last bathing suit, at least 15 years old, BUT I bought a pair of BLACK danskins SHORT length, and I had an older barely used undergarment top, that had its own bra inside. I FIGURED together it would look like a two colored bathing suit. So, Wednesday I went, and Yes, my friend thought it was a bathing suit! WooHoo! What happened at the Y that day, that has me SMILING still on FRIDAY.
I FELT LIKE WHAT I THINK THE OTHER PEOPLE FELT LIKE.
I FELT ACCEPTED, AS I AM NOW!
I FELT TOTALLY WELCOMED! I FELT COMFORTABLE GOING ON A PIECE OF EXERCISE EQUIPMENT, AND ASKED QUESTIONS, AND WAS GIVEN ANSWERS, AND ADVICE AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
IN THE POOL, I was not the largest person in the pool! I was able to do what was expected!
I was happy, alive and exuberant with excitement!
The positive feelings so still flowing through my blood, and this afternoon, I am heading out the the Y, and so looking forward to it.
One Day at a Time
One Meal at a Time
One Exercise Session, at a Time
One Day, I will reach my Goal
In the Meantime, I will Live My Life Fully and Enjoy all that is possible!
I want this for each and everyone of you too, it feels GREAT!
Soar the Skies
Reach for the Stars
Onward & Downward

With weight lost, I feel the cold more. I know other people that have/has this problem, also.
I am very interested, in reading articles about how to adjust the temperature in ones body, after weight lost.
Is something missing, that needs to be eaten or drank that will increase the ability to get warmer?
Normal Temperature is 98.6, we know what to do when running high.
Why does a couple of degrees lower, feel so COLD?
Feet with heavy socks on, brrrr very cold
Jogging Suit on and legs are cold.
Winter jacket on, feet so cold.
Do I have heat in my apartment? Yes
Is there something, I can rub on the skin, that will increase the warmth?
Thank You for all your ideas about this
