Continued Success

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Weight loss: Seven pounds since I started tracking here. I actually gained 14.8 pounds more than my first starting weight. I had not weighed for some time and it blew my mind when I saw I was a sneeze away from 330! I panicked and hopped on the Internet to research low carb programs because I'd been successful doing that in the past. I hit on the Duke University Rice Diet, downloaded the book and started right away. Over the weeks since the beginning of May I have modified the plan but it was my start and I feel successful! In actuality I have lost 21.6 pounds and that is more than I have ever done. I'm heading for the finish line.

Road Trip 2012

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Recently returned from my third annual road trip. Nine days this year-Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis, MS, Little Rock, Eureka Springs, Branson, Pigeon Forge. I tried local eateries and came home weighing four pounds more than when I left. Fortunately I was able to get back on track and lost the four pounds within a week. Since the end of April I have lost 20.4 pounds.
It hardly makes a dent in where I need to go but I feel confident that I'm on to something this time-whole foods and grains, fresh fruit; limiting carbs and dairy. emoticon
