    Same here. It's easy to get derailed with temptations everywhere.

a light bulb moment for me.....

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I have been a faithful member of Spark People for almost 2 years now and I am truly dedicated to my fitness and absolutely LOVE exercise. We have a very active family as a whole and that has always been the easy part for me. The hard part has always been nutrition.
I had intentions of eating clean and have set goals for myself routinely only to misfire and do the exact opposite of my plans when time is tight and I am starving or I have not planned well, which is frequent. It is so amazing that I only need to lose about 25-30 pounds considering what a mess my nutrition can be at times...... Guess all that exercise has really helped!!!!
It seems over the past few weeks that I am undergoing a true change and epiphany in my life. Not sure where it cane from or that I am just darn sick of saying I am going to get it right and not accomplishing it. I have been eating clean and planning my meals for a week now and wow, what a difference it has made in how I feel, inches are going by the way side and I will see how it will relate to the scale later this week (I only weigh once a week). It has been so easy too and I am having the whole family eat like this too with no griping from the peanut gallery!!!!!!
I have personally adopted a plant based diet over the past couple of months and really feel great. The family will still eat meat and I am OK with that. They will be able to make their own decisions as they learn and grow. My daughters are 16, 13 and 12 and are very athletic and active and are skinny as rails.... (I was too until I hit 40!!!!!)
I am amazed at the energy level that I have and I can power through my workouts so much easier now. Funny how food can do that for ya!!!!!!! I truly love SP and all the great and motivating people that I have "met" over the past couple of years. I learn from everyone and I feel that seeing so much success has really helped me get that light bulb moment. I will keep posting about my progress, but an initial goal is no dessert for 30 days! A long term goal is to compete in a fitness/figure competition for the 40+ crowd!!!! Will keep updating as I go along!!!!

    It sounds like you are doing great. I am also revamping my eating plan. It's time I did. I spent most of my life thin until I was 46. I don't want to spend the rest of it being fat.

Finally getting it

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

I guess I am finally getting it. I have never had a huge weight problem but got kinda lazy and let life and all get in the way for the past 4-5 years. I gained 30 punds and just felt like crap. Now, I am on the way down and I finally realized that it just can't be exercise; it has to be all about nutrition. I have embraced the "clean eating principles"and wow, do I feel great and the scale is on the way down too!!! What a fabulous feeling that at 46, I am on my way to getting back to the old me. Glad to have stopped the bad cycle.... Thanks to this great site too!!!!

    CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW LIFE STYLE. BETTER TO DO IT NOW THAN AT A LATER AGE, TRUST ME.(SMILE) I USE TO MOCK PEOPLE THAT HAD ONLY A FEW LBS. TO LOSE. I'D SAY STUFF LIKE,"THEY WOULDN'T KNOW FAT IF IT HIT THEM UPSIDE THE HEAD". WELL IF I'D DONE WHAT YOUR DOING WITH JUST A FEW LBS TO LOSE I WOULDN'T BE BACK HERE AT OVER 200 LBS. AGAIN. SO I COMMEND YOU FOR TAKEN CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE BEFORE YOUR WEIGHT TAKES CONTROL OF YOU.
BEST TO YOU ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY. "DRU"

Entering into the holiday season

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Well, since it is a couple of weeks from Thanksgiving and all the craziness of the holiday season, I wanted to talk about trying to stay within my calorie alottment and still enjoy myself. I have not always done a very good job of managing my eating habits during this season, but this year, I am just planning to do the best I can along with really uping my exercising which I have been known to let go by the wayside during the holidays.
I think if I just burn more calories that it will help me to at least maintain and not gain. I have 28 pounds to go and want to try to lose about 5-6 pounds during the holiday month.
Will keep y'all posted!!!!
