Normally when I eat out since I started on this new lifestyle I make it Subway, or order healthy foods. Today my son really wanted Burger King. While I normally do not go there often, I did today. I only like a couple of their sandwiches, so I got one. After I ate it I felt terrible. I felt really nauseated and tired. It was completely horrible. I have been eating healthy since the beginning of Feb. and have not eaten fast or fried foods. I do not think I'll do that again. When you eat it all of the time you do not notice it. However, after you quit for a time, and then try it, you realize how bad it is for you. It was like I could feel the fat and triglycerides in my stomach, throat, and chest, yuk!!!

I was on the message boards yesterday where I found a controversial dispute. Both had great points that seemed logical. I have been on Spark People for a month and a half. I have stuck to my diet pretty faithfully. I exercise for an hour to an hour and a half 6 days a week, but am not losing weight. I lost 9 pounds my first week, but have since gained that back and have stayed there. I am always always hungry. I was told and read that is because I consume way to many carbs. I am normally within my suggested range on my diet plan though. I am always in my range for fat, calories, and protein. Anyway, the debate was about low-fat versus low-carb dieting. I am starting to think that maybe the low-carb would be better, but do not know how well I could commit to that. Please help as you can find good and bad to both.

Wow, what a walk in the fresh air can do for you. It has been so cold and snowy here, that other than shoveling, I haven't really been out much. Today is sunny and about 35 degrees. Our driveway is about a half mile long. So I walked down to get the mail. Boy does it do good to get some fresh air and sunshine. I love my Wii and other exercises, but walking outside looking around at the beautiful scenery is awesome. Between that little walk and my tomato plants are really growing in here, I really have spring fever. I can't wait to be outside all day to garden, do lawn work, swim, walk, and just be outside. Just thought I would share as it has been a long, hard winter. Even states that normally don't get snow got it this year.

I quit smoking on February 1st. Then I started on here a few days later. In the past I went back to smoking because of weight gain. Last time I quit for a little over a year. I gained 40 lbs. so I started back smoking. This time I am bound and determined to not gain weight, and to hopefully lose it.
Every time I have tried to lose weight I feel deprived, and go back to normal eating. This time I decided to allow myself to indulge once a week. I pick a day to eat things I use to that are not so healthy, like pizza, ramen noodle soup with cheese, chips, those things. I still watch calories that day, but enjoy some favorites within moderation. Today I decided to have my ramen noodle chicken flavor. I put nacho cheese in it. I use to love it, but today it tasted horrible! I know they are extremely high in sodium, but today it tasted like I was just eating salt. I couldn't eat it like I use to. I felt like a fat pig. This is good. Every time I quit smoking foods start to taste salty to me. This time it is even worse, which is good.
I think my tastes are changing as a result of following this program. That is good because that will help me succeed. I want this forever so this is a huge step in the right direction! After reading the Spark, I know it is okay to have bad days without feeling guilty, that is huge for me. I can do this. Not relapse in smoking or in my new healthy lifestyle!!!
