I made my own Panda Express today

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I decided to see if I could find something a little healthier version of Panda express so I bought some Frozen Orange Chicken from the store and the Simply Asia noodles......It's close and here is the difference.



Panda
Serving Size 15 Ounces
910 Calories
43 Fat
1680 Sodium

Store
Serving Size 15 Ounces

    emoticon How was it? I love Orange Chicken. We have been avoiding the place across the street because every time we get Chinese we gain weight.

Off to a good start down .4

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Despite my high sodium eating the last 5 days I was down .4 this morning (194.8) that's a 1.8 pounds per week average since I started on January 1st!

Although I'm happy to be losing I would really like to figure out how to maintain a 2 pound per week average.....at a 1.8 pound average that puts me at my goal weight of 129.9 by November 12th which is honestly just fine with me ...I'm just worried that the more I lose the more my average will drop and I really want to be at my goal weight before December 6th (for my 10 year anniversary cruise) emoticon

    Wondergale- in order to get a 2.5 pound a week loss you need to create a 10,500 deficit each week either with exercise or food or both. It works both ways though if you don't eat enough your body often wont give up the weight so it's a balance ....and I've found that if you eat high sodium even if you lose the pounds it wont show on the scale because of the water weight. I know what I need to do to get the 2 pounds per week ...it's just a matter of doing it 7 days a week instead of 4-5 emoticon

    emoticon I was wondering the same thing. I would like to lose 2.5 pounds per week. I was aiming for a 10 pound per month loss, but I haven't figured out how to get it. emoticon

    Cute pic! You go girl! I see you're wearing your new headband. You did it! You got over 14,000 steps today! I'm almost to 9,000 and I really don't know if I can get myself to do those last couple thousand, but knowing me, I will find a way.

I'm proud of you!

My thoughts on Spark Teams

Friday, March 01, 2013

In 2006 when I joined Spark People the first time...I joined a Team that was emoticon not only was it emoticon but it along with making friends with Fruityful (who is the one that lead me to the Team) was the key to my success! As a matter of fact Frutiyful is the reason I got to go to NYC for the photo shoot which lead to the trip to California to be on the "ellen" show. Years later that all feels like a dream...but, it was pretty emoticon dream!

The reason I am writing this blog is because that year and most of 2007 and some of 2008 I made some really emoticon friends! And then something happened....all those friends one by one started to disappear.....I tried to find other friends just like them but, no matter how hard I tried it just wasn't working...year after year I would try again .....it wasn't until this year that I started to "connect" with people again (that feeling when you wake up in the morning of I have to check Spark to see how my friends are doing) I emoticon having that feeling!

I never in a million years thought I would make friends with people on-line but, I found my best friend Frutiyful on this website and I am truly thankful for this site and everything it has to offer....regardless weigh-loss of my ups and downs.

    Ditto! I feel the same way! I miss a lot of the girls from the October 2006 team, but that was 7 whole years ago...hard to believe! I am finally feeling the same way as you, where I look forward to checking in on my Spark friends. I feel like I'm getting to know them and am truly interested in following their progress and cheering for or supporting them. I really do think that this feeling is one of the keys to success on Spark.

We've had some fun times since we met on here in 2006...and I'm so glad we're friends! Maybe some day we'll live in the same town..and if not, we'll just have to plan annual trips to visit each other or something!
