Just Don't Do It

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Okay, you know we all have felt this way. I didn't loose any weight so whats the use of putting myself through all this healthy eating, and this exercise that is going to make my body so much stronger. Well, I will tell you why, because you love yourself enough to start this new lifestyle change, so you must follow it all the way to the end. I was so gloomy on weigh in day after the scale said the same thing it said last week. But you know what it has just made me strive harder this week to get results for the next day, and the next day..... So just don't do it, that is give up. You owe it to yourself to complete your goals no matter how long it takes. Have a happy day,Hope you enjoyed my blog, and that it made you think.You are worth the effort.

can I or can I not afford healthy foods

Monday, February 16, 2009

Boy , are you like me, or like I was... I thought I couldn't afford fresh produce.But , I am now learning with prices going up on can goods, that I can buy fresh, Sure , I shop around check out all the salespapers, hunt for those bargains, but I am finding that I spent no more than I did when I was buying canned foods, or boxed foods, and junk food. I plan my meals out for the week, make me a list of foods, and stick to it. Yeah, I will buy that extra something, that unadvertised special that's just waiting on me, but I make it worth the while.... next week menu will include that item. Take for example tunas on sale, but I hadn't planned it, well it can sit on my pantry shelf just as well as it does on the stores shelf, and I save money, plus I can add it in on my meal plan for another week. I also have a container in the fridge for leftover veggies, makes the best soup you ever put in your mouth, just add some V8 juice for the base, and boy are you getting all your veggies in that day. So yes I can afford to for my health.

  


Making Progress

Monday, February 09, 2009

Well, I'm about 3 weeks in now I am making progress. I weigh in on Mondays, at the lifecenter for weight loss...boy, I was so scared..what was the scale going to reveal today... Well , it revealed that if you use the foodtracker everyday, and excerise atleast 30 mintues everyday that you can make progress. How do I know this because today the scale was 4 lbs lighter, for a total of 6 lbs since I began my journey. What else did the scale say "thank you" ,thanks for eating properly, and walking even though your feet are killing you. I am making progress, and I will continue logging in my food intake, whether it be good or bad choices, and I will walk for atleast 30 minutes until I am able to carry on longier, even if it does hurt my feet.

Well, another month, another day, I am really proud to say I stuck it out and followed a good menu plan today. Not a diet plan but a menu plan. See, I'm not on a diet, I am learning to eat properly, healthy, and the way we are suppose to eat. Had you ever set and added up all the calories , carbs and fat you ate before you begain your new life. I did it was horrible. I ate like there was no tomorrow. I am slowly learning how to shop at the store. I don't temp myself with the bad isles. But I did get my husband and daughter a treat snack, and told them when it's gone that's it for the week. YOu know I seen my husband eating on carrot sticks. My little girl is measuring everything. Isn't life grand when you see the whole family trying out the new life style. I haven't lost a whole lot of weight, but I have managed to bring my bloodsugar down to normal. I assume the weight will follow at it's on sweet time. Becareful though with yhour eating habits make sure you try to follow you intake close. I got a post about a guy passing away because he kept going way under his calories, and over excersied,and that's scary if it's true. So sad.

    Stella: Could you share your "menu plan" with me; and perhaps others who are looking for good ideas. I am 65, have T2 Diabetes (use meds and foods for control) have lots of weight to lose. I do eat the healthy foods that I was told to do, and I do measure and portion control. I do try to keep my carbs low. But I am not losing the weight. Perhaps if I see your plan, it would help me with my menu/healthy lifestyle. You can write to me at my e-mail address: lascott@efn.org. or SparkMail.

Thanks for your help...

A new beginning

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Do you allow yourself to have a new begining everyday. I think I am going to start doing this even if the day before was great. Why not strive for another great day, and then on the other hand if you had a bad day why would you want to do that again? So , today I will follow by foodtracker to the best of my knowledge, and I will walk , and I will try to be and say something positive to my self , and some one. It's been a week since I've really started the program faithfully, and I am really looking forward to the next week. Happy journey to everyone. May God bless you everyday
