I don't know why I'm still here. Well actually I do. I am giving up my Weight Watchers membership, because I have been tracking here on Spark. I think I like it here better. Have been getting bored with the whole point counting thing. Maybe just changing things up a bit will make a difference. So, for the remainder of 2014 I will track here and stay within my 1200 calorie range. Even if that gives me a slow loss, it's still better than no loss, right?
On another note, my family could use some prayers if you are so inclined. It would be greatly appreciated. My 59 year old brother passed away in September from colon cancer, and my younger brother 49 years old is slowly slipping away too. He has a blockage in his lung, and is too weak for surgery. He has been bedridden due to a stroke 18 months ago. The doctors say that this blockage will eventually take him away from us.
We will get through this, I know. Life ain't always easy, is it?

Day 4 of Smoothie Madness:
Today I thought I would try something different so added a couple of new things to the smoothie repertoire. Cucumber and avocado. Now I've heard that these are good additions to a smoothie, so why did mine come out sort of bleh, like it did? It wasn't awful, but it wasn't wonderful either. I think was because there wasn't enough room for more than a few blueberries. Will have to work on fine tuning this. It wasn't a recipe. I just was going through the frig and grabbing stuff that looked like it would be good to add.
Here is what I ended up with:
1 cup baby spinach
1/3 of an avocado
a 4 inch piece of cucumber
about 1/2 cup blueberries.
topped off with almond milk.
I would probably not use this mix again in these proportions, but I will say the avocado did make it creamy.
Well, tomorrow is another opportunity, isn't it?

Not much going on here. The weight has pretty much stayed the same. I fear the problem is me. I have little will power
Three days ago we bought the Nutribullet. I am looking to replace at least one meal a day with a smoothie. Vegetable and fruit, with some sort of protein added. These will be one of the following:
I am hoping this will help. I do notice I tend to not want to snack for quite a long time after I drink one and snacking seems to be the source of my problem. I don't eat big meals.
Weight watchers hasn't worked for me so far, although it did in the past.
So, that's where I am right now. We shall see how it works out...

My friend just lost 20 lbs on the Medifast diet She said it was not a hard diet to follow. I have spent the day investigating this diet plan, with the possibility of going on it. It is a very low calorie diet with 5 premade meals and one you make yourself out of lean protein and low glycemic vegetables. It was kind of expensive from what she told me, so I don't really want to sign up for it.
So my question is: anybody here doing Medifast, or some similar diet? And, how hard is it to follow? Just looking at some other options, as I've tried WeightWatchers in the past, but haven't liked the program changes the last couple of years.
Thanks for listening!

Just a check in, to keep myself. I am on day three of using the Fitbit. I have increased the number of steps each of the days which is a move in the right direction.
I have a doctor appt in early December, and I would like to be down 3 or 4 lbs by that time. I don't expect the process to be fast. Time has shown me that I have a slow metabolism and have to work harder at this.
I think blogging about this will help keep me focused on the goal.
Thanks for listening!
