I'm surprised I Wasn't Twice As Big When I Started This Journey

Friday, April 10, 2009

Up until a few years ago, I was able to eat anything in any quantity and not gain weight. Then stress, hormones, and other challenges tidal waved me and the pounds came to visit. I never weighed myself, or paid attention to calories listed on food packages. When I look over this past six months and all I've learned, I shake my head in amazement at how I used to eat vs. how I eat now. And I sometimes pick up stuff I used to eat, just to see how many calories and am blown away. It's amazing I wasn't twice the size when I started this weight loss lifestyle. So glad I woke up before I got sick. That would've definitely happened. I'm thrilled at my progress and impatient to lose the last 17.

    You were so wise to adopt a new way of eating before you did too much damage. These bodies of ours have mysterious ways when it comes to what we weigh! Give yourself a big pat on the back for working hard and doing so well! You're coming down the home stretch at this point. - Sara emoticon

Nothing On My Mind

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

Sometimes I just don't have anything to say here. I get tired of constantly thinking of healthy food, scales, weight, etc. I just want to clear my mind and think of absolutely nothing for awhile. (smiling)

  


Feeling Very Thankful for this Lighter Self

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

There's really nothing to say today, other than I have a huge feeling of gratitude at how much better I feel without 33 extra pounds. I can only imagine what the last 17 will feel like! Hooray, hooray!

Eating Intervals - Different Opinions, Which One to Follow?

Monday, April 06, 2009

I heard Jillian Michaels, on her radio show, say that she doesn't agree with the 4-5 small meals a day schedule. She says we should eat three meals and a snack. Period. The reason? Well, she feels that it's not the way the body was meant to eat - all day long, and may interfere with insulin production. (or something to that effect) I've heard otherwise. What to follow? I guess whatever works best for me.

    ...and that's the key! Whatever works for you. I eat twice a day and sometimes a snack. It works for me. If you have something that is working for you, try not to interrupt that in the name of doing it differently because some celebrity says what you're doing should be done a certain way. As long as you are within your calories for the day and it's working, do it!

    I am surprised that Jillian would say that. I have been a biggest loser follower and I have done the diet for over a year and it definitely promotes eating 6 times a day. The only thing I can say is that it does not say 4or 5 small meals. It is 3 meals and 3 snacks. The meals were generally around 300 calories and the snacks at 100 cals for a total of 1200 cals per day. Of course the amount of calories varies depending on size. Maybe that is what Jillian was talking about. Not all small meals. 3 meals and snacks. Not sure but I loved how it worked for me. I was never left hungry when I ate how and when I was supposed to.

Good like with your decision. You are right, what works best for you is the way you should go. Ultimately calories in and calories out is what counts however you do it (Within reason)

Good luck
