Jillian and me

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Well Jillian came back to our community and it was a better response from the people. The family that Jillian was coaching did really well, and of the 5 of them 4 lost 30 pounds each, now mind you that was in 6 weeks. I am very proud of them and if they can lose the weight and stick to a program then I can too.
As for I know I've lost 15 total pounds since March 22, so I know I can achieve something if I put my mind and body to it. I thank you all for your support, comments and cheers ya'll are super fabulous Sparkfriends.
Be blessed emoticon

    What a great picture. I would blow it up and hang it from my refrigerator. Then I wouldn't be as tempted to open it to eat more.

20 down. . . . .

Monday, June 21, 2010

I finally did it and have lost 20 pounds. My next goal is to lose another 10 before August.
* * * * * * * * *
Although I changed my calorie intake goal, I have yet to be under it, so it's gonna be a little slow but I will reach it. For now I am sticking with the water especially that I have a water cooler from Sparkletts water. I detest my tap water and had constant stomach problems with it. So here I go to finish my 8+ cups for today.
Be blessed sparkfriends, and I'll see you lighter emoticon

So close. . . .

Thursday, June 10, 2010

I weighed today just to see where I am and my scale said 320. It feels so good to see a zero but to see a one in there would be really great. I haven't seen 31? in a long time. I hope this stays or minuses one by Monday.
Ok well I off to get in my 1.5 mile in for today, you all have fabulous Thursday and I'll see you lighter emoticon

Breaking even

Monday, June 07, 2010

Well, no movement on the scale for me this week. I knew it was going to be like this I lost track of my food and didn't journal or at least not the whole week. Also It is so hot and humid that I just retain water.
I am going to step up on the exercising by doing more days. I will walk the 1.5 miles on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursdays and then do 20 minutes or a mile of the other 3 days and taking Saturdays as my day off.
Thats it for updates, have a blessed week Sparkfriends

    here on SPARK there was an article that told us that when we are exercising, we can perspire (as women we 'glow', i know) as much as 2 cups/ hour...
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
so we need to replenish that within the hour after exercising to not go into dehydration...
i am suggesting 6 cups a day MIGHT be why you retain water--your body holds onto it if it feels like it is not getting ample to the summer they suggest the recommended 8 cups/day should be increased to 10-12 cups...and there are many camps that suggest for every 10 pounds overweight that we are, we should add a cup of water to our minimum 8 cups...most articles regarding water intake make a point of saying that MOST of us are in a state of partial dehydration...
give it a shot...i suggest try a week of being absolutely sure to get 10 cups in a day and see if that makes a difference--FOR ME...water is about the only liquid i take in...sometimes i'll have a green tea or an iced tea if i get a little hungry (or antsy for food) and it's not really time to eat or ACTUAL hunger, just craving...and a flavored water helps curb that...
i wish you the very best...keep at it(i'm cheering me on while i'm telling you"keep at it") emoticon
