Sick of all meat

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I was told by my Cardiologist I had gained a lot of weight and had a lot of Jameson on my body. He put me on a live food diet. I juiced with my nutribullet and a a lot of salads using mustard for dressing. Four weeks later l lost 25 lbs. was gone. Cooking dinner my husband I accidently ate some of the smoked Turkey meat. I developed abdominal pain and swelling, the next day the pain got worse I took a trip to the E.R. which left me in the hospital with no known reasons for abdominal pain with diarreah and nausea. I have been in the hospital for 3 days now. Has this happened to anyone else and if so please tell me how you recovered from it. .

    Sorry to hear you're so ill!

But that's excellent that you lost 25 pounds so quickly, WOW!

I hope the doctors and nurses are taking good care of you and you'll be back home soon!

    You might need to go organic and stay away from all that stuff that they put in the meat! Make sure it is all grass fed and not fed grains at all! What happened is that you detoxed all that poison out of y0ur body and then when you had that little piece that sent your body into turmoil and now you need to find foods that don't have all that stuff in it

I have lost 11 lbs since 02/29/2012.

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Hello Sparkfamily
I weighed in today and my weight has not changed since thursday. I now have lost 11 lbs since 02/29/2012. I am working hard to stay on track, it's so difficult when you are the only one in at home on a diet for the rest of your life. But thats how it is and there is nothing that I can do to change that. I have worked out now 3 times a week since March 15 and I am looking forward to the workout on the Gazelle. Tomorrow will be the 3rd day this week for my workout. I am now up to 40 minutes with the warmup and cooldown added in. I am going to physical therapy 3 times a week and I am working out on the Gazelle 3 days a week. I am able to walk with less pain now and that is good too. I will see what tomorrow brings for my weigh in. Until tomorrow family much love from me to you, Lenoire. emoticon

    emoticon Lenoire on your 11 pounds. U go girl. I thought I was doing well with 7 dwn so far.

I find it much easier to stay on track when I am alone. I rarely keep anything in the house I shouldn't be eating. I cook in batches sometimes and put things in the freezer. This way I keep my cooking talents in tact in case I get lucky.(wink)

We are about the same weight & racing to ONDERLAND emoticon

Lets do it together emoticon.

    Congratulations on your weight loss so far, Lenoire! I'm glad to hear that your pain has lessened already. Try not to think of it as a diet for the rest of your life. Think of it as being in control of the rest of your life. The modifications get easier and soon enough, you won't miss the 'bad' foods as much. The temptation pretty much subsides, as well.

All my best,

I worked out today for 30 minutes on the Gazalle

Friday, March 16, 2012

Hey Sparkpeople Family,
I am happy to annouce that I worked out for 30 minutes today + a five minute cool down. It was hard work but I enjoyed it very much so. I tried by working out doing the Zumba Fitness game but my physical therapist told me that is to much for my leg after the menisectomy repair. When I asked her about the Gazelle she said that would be perfect. No weight bearing and I could workout for 10 minutes to start off. But I worked out for 30 minutes because at 10 minutes I felt that I contiue further and I did of course. Before I knew it the workout was over. I will start again tomorrow. Love you family take care.

Still struggling to make it to my goal.

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Hello Everyone,
I am writing you to say that I am still struggling to lose this weight. There are so many things out there that are so tempting. I want to eat sweets and that is not good for me, and I know this man(Chris Tucker) :-D. But still I have to keep on fighting, today I gave in and at half of a piece of chocolate cake with my grandson. I tried very hard but eventually gave in. l I weighed in today and lost a few pounds over the past few days. I initially lost 8 lbs the first few days on the QWLC plan but then I ended up gaining back 3 of the 8 lbs back. As of today I weighed in and had lost the 3 lbs. NOW I ate that piece of cake and well, not hing left to say but I ate and now I have to do everything to get back on track again. I think I am going to join that fight sweet tooth club and get involved with blogging. I have not been given the ok to workout yet and will start using the exercises in a chair that was mentioned to me by my spark family member. Anyway I just wanted to say hello to everyone one out there and let you all know it is still a struggle trying to stay on the straight and narrow. emoticon If there is anyone else going through this please drop me a few lines, I don't want to anyone else going through this but I know that I am not alone and need some support in this area.

    Keep going, one step at a time - and half a piece of chocolate cake is pretty good in my books!! Everything in moderation is the secret. The fact that you could say no to a whole piece of chocolate cake shows that you have the will power in you to lose what you need to lose!

    Everyone has their weak moments. I actually tried one of the seated cardio exercises this week at work. They are fun and only take a few minutes and it's better than not doing anything.

Not exercising these days but still losing weight

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Hello family
I had a Meniscectomy of my left knee done on 01/20/2012 and I have not seen the doctor as of yet. I go tomorrow for an emergency check up. I have not gained any weight and have lost 4 lbs since then. I am happy about that. I guess I could start working out with my arms since I can't do anything with my legs. I have really big arms and need to work on getting them toned too. I am good spirits and looking forward to a healthy recovery. I am still a vegetarian too and have lots more energy than I had before I gave up the meat wagon. All in all I feel great sparkpeople family. Have a good nights sleep and will touch bases with you all tomorrow this time.

    I thank you both for your support and understanding. I have to keep my hopes up high I don't want to get depressed and start down the path of emotional eating again. I changed my diet because I hurt so much after I started back to eating chicken and fish. I understand that for me I can't eat meat anymore and I am ok with that, I am holding on to my higher power. emoticon I am looking forward to seeing the old me resurfacing in better shape than I was when I was eating more meat protein that vegatable, fruits and vegetable proteins. And again thanks for the support.
