My belly...

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

I just can not believe it. I am sitting at work, I have a desk job working at a computer all day, and I looked down ( am not sure as to why, but did ) and I had to bend over to see my stomach!!! My weight is at a plateau right now, but there are still some amazing changes happening in my body!

Seeing this, or I should say, NOT seeing this, has given me a great motivation to keep going!!

I just wanted to update. My weight has been a "yoho", but I have gotten my hands on a book that has helped me out a lot this last week. I have found what the culprit is, carbs, and have been following a very strict meal plan, but this is only for another week. After that, phase 2 will begin, where I will slowly be upping my carbs.

Though I have not been keeping track on here (aka slacking) I have been finding time to exercise 4 times a week with just one dumbbell and a workout stretch band. I have been feeling more energized. My weight is kind of stuck, but I am seeing results in the mirror as the fat is slowly turning to muscle!!! I am very excited about this and feeling very positive!!

Starting Over

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

OK. Well. Things were going very well for a while. I am not sure what happened, but I began to gain all of the weight I had lost, and now I am back at square 1...207 lbs. This is the second time I have been this heavy; the first was when I first joined SparkPeople. This has had a huge negative impact on me emotionally.
Each day I sit at my desk and wonder "hmm what am I doing wrong? I am eating 2 fruits during the morning hours, then a lunch, which has been including more salad than anything, then a well rounded super, which includes more fresh veggies than anything". I do not have a chance for many exercises, as I sit at a desk all day, and my evening consists of cooking,cleaning, and going to bed.
Something has got to give. I am desperate. I think my family finally realizes how much so, and is finally at a point that they are willing to fully support my change in eating habits, which means they will be changing with me.
Getting this out does help, and I will be keeping my page updated to what is going on with this battle. I am not sure how it will play out, as I have been on the live diet for over a month, I have been making sure my thyroid (which has always given me problems) is under control, and I have even been introduced by a friend to caraway seeds, which I have taken 2 times a day for over a month. None of this has all. Still very constipated, and very overweight.
I have been eating less carbs for several months now. What is it that I am doing that is not right? I just can not figure it out yet.
