    I have one every other day for breakfast and I put 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed in mine. Sometimes I'll put kale instead of the spinach and a half of an avocado .

i am trying to figure out how much sugar I have now I think sugar has another name for it I just don't know what it is. I am not allowed a lot of sugar. so can someone suggest some foods that don't have a lot of sugar that isn't a fruit or veggie? also some great tasting sweet smoothie mixes for fruit and veggies would be great... any tips????

    i dont use added sweetners or mixes in my smoothies. If i have verries and a banana i is sweet enought. i have read that some protein powders have added sweeteners.

Do you have to limit simple sugars or carbohydrates? complez carbs can provide fiber and sometimes protein to help fill you up.

    My best advice would be to go to the message boards to "Get Help Here" and post your question on the nutrition board. A SparkPeople nutritionist will answer your question within a day or so. I know that lactose is milk sugar and fructose is fruit sugar and "evaporated cane juice" is another form of sugar; sucrose is Splenda I think and not very fattening but probably not very good for you.

There are some articles on sugar here on SparkPeople. I'll see if I can find one or more for you. -Marsha

when i last weighed....

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

when I last weighed myself I was at my highest weight possible. im talking like... seriously overweight. this morning ... even after having lost a total of 15 pounds I am still ashamed to put in my weight at the weekly weigh in. but... back to when I did last weigh myself, I made an appointment with my doctor. enough Is enough I said. I cant do this anymore. this is crazy. i am putting on so much weight that it is starting to affect things in my life that it really shouldn't. and the big problem is, i don't eat veggies or fruit. i barely drink water. this just sucks. how the hell do i go on a diet when i cant eat diet food?????
so now i am cutting back on ALLLL the stuff i am eating. oh man it was so bad. i was drinking pepsi, i was eating food outside the house all the time. hmmm i wonder how i gained so much weight haha. and this workout that i have going on now. ugh. its killing my knees. and its not supposed to!!! but i guess i need to suck it up. anyway, when i last weighed myself i was 15 lbs heavier. now i am not.

    Take it slow. Yes it would be great to lose 10lbs a month but too much change all at once is really hard.
Start by eating less of the things you normally eat. I saw a news story about a teacher who lost weight eating nothing but McDonalds. His class helped him create menu plans using their Nutrition info so he was able to stay within a set calorie range.
Start measuring your portions and tracking what you eat. This is a big one. Even if it takes you 2 weeks to consistently get your portions down into your calorie range.
Make a small goal to drink more water. For every 8 oz of "this" that you drink you have to have 4 oz of water before you can have a refill...etc Getting flavorings for your water might help. Also some people have to drink ice water, others only like it room temp.
Just experiment! Go to SparkRecipes and find some healthier versions of food you like and see how you can adjust it to your taste. Try a new recipe once a week.
Once you feel like you have a handle on the food/nutrition part start finding time to be more active. Go for a walk after dinner. There are people who celebrate being able to make it all the way around the block so don't feel bad if what you accomplish feels small. Everyone has to start some where.

    Put a bottle of water in the freezer for awhile. When it is frozen take it out and roll it under your foot. It feels sooo amazingly good. I fought this just last June. When I finally found a good fitting pair of shoes it went away!

so I went to the doctor a month or so ago and had a bone spur in my foot. ugh. that's why I have been in so much pain. so I haven't been working out and I have been gaining weight. ugh again. but I saw my doctor yesterday and she is going to put me on a plan. I am so excited to try it considering the success rate that she has. anyway I am always saying good luck to someone else so

good luck to ME!!!!
