I've been staying at the same weight now for about 6 months. It is not a bad thing, this means I am maintainng the weight, yahoo! I am a total of 90 lbs down but still need to lose another 15 - 20. However, I want to build the muscle!
Anyone with some good tips on still losing weight but gaining muscle?

Thanks spark friends emoticon

    emoticonI have to stay away from sugars/refined starches. They spike my Insulin level & make me have cravings at night.

Check out Roby Mitchell, M.D. on YouTube as he is DrFittt

He is a medical doctor that has a weight loss program for his patients and he has a PhD, also. He studied in China. He is a very interesting man. He had advanced prostrate cancer & treated himself.

One year and holding

Friday, March 25, 2011

Its been one year since joining Spark People (can't believe it) I've lost over 75 lbs and many inches. I went from size 22 to size 12 and I'm still in shock when I put my pants on that even say size 12. I'm loving the way I feel. Thank you all my friends, and potential friends all over the world. You all mean alot to me...

As I read many Sparkfriends blogs and web pages, I am facinated at how much Sparkpeople is helping and has helped so many people around the world.

I have lost a total of 91 lbs. I am healthier than I have been since I was a young teen. I have gained so much knowledge on all the things I did wrong in all my past "diet experiences" I've done them all. Over the years, I have lost and gained probably well over 500 lbs on and off.

What was the key this time around you might be asking? So I sat back and asked myself the same question?

I realized I was doing this for myself. Not anyone else, I realized I had to stop "dieting" and "depriving" as that is how I thought of not being able to eat the foods I liked. I gave myself many reasons, not to go to the gym. I gave myself many reasons why It is OK to eat that Pizza today, maybe I was at the cardio machine an extra 10 minutes? Everything I did, was around eating, or not eating.

I finally realized I needed to live for myself. I enjoy a nice glass of wine, I enjoy and Chocolate once in a while, I enjoy the various different classes at the gym. I had to get into my head. This was something I enjoyed and not because I was overweight and just had to do this.

I eat now 5 - 6 times a day, I walk and take those fun classes like Zumba, I do enjoy a good heart cardio workout a couple times a week. I enjoy taking on new challenges. I enjoy trying new fruits and veggies and learning how to cook them.

I eat for me now. I exercise for me now. So I know I can keep going.

Everyone make a point to say to yourself everyday "I'm doing this for me and loving every minute of it!) Thanks everyone....

    Weekends are the hardest, for all of us I think. I just try to keep my mind on other things. I like to take walks, wash the car, play in the yard with my dog, or just sit out in the shade and read a good book. I try hard to make my weekend calm and do something for me. I have figured out, that staying outside keeps me away from the kitchen... that is what has worked for me. In the winter, I do a puzzle, it keeps my mind busy...

YaHoo!!! Size 12

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I can't believe it. I went shopping yesterday and bought a Size 12. I haven't been in a size 12 probably since I was that age. I am so excited.

Its funny though, I still have a tendancy to drive by or go into plus size stores... go figure? emoticon

60 lbs the pros and cons? really is there cons? Yes

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Hello I am now 60 lbs down. Feeling fabulous. This is lots of hard work but I feel great. Now as I gave in my heading "is there cons to losing 60 lbs".

One that I am finding is the "extra skin". I actually thought about gaining weight again because the skin look so awful. But don't worry my spark friends, I will perservere and get to the gym and work out, work out those areas. I don't know where I read it but someone said it does take time for the skin to fit your new body. So I will hope and pray this happens fairly soon.

Anyone have any tips on this????? emoticon
