do you Force yourself to eat foods you don't like

Tuesday, June 09, 2009

On occasion I will eat a small taste of fish because I know it is good for me, but I am allergic to shellfish and don't like seafood at all.

    I am not a big seafood fan, but I will eat it sometimes, and I prefer fish that has a mild flavor, like Tilapia.

I wish you all the best and think it is awesome that you force yourself to do things that are good for you.

You inspire me to do the same. emoticon

    I do like some fish if it doesn't smell really fishy. Trout, cod and some fish like that are good. But the shellfish and others that are strong smelling, no thank you. I also do not like lobster, clams, or any of those "delicious" seafoods. So I really understand where you are coming from.
Blessings and hugs,

My significant other

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Yes and no/ My husband has finally decided to watch what he eats and I am so ever grateful. I make sure he gets his healthy breakfast and dinner. He has been pretty good with his lunch. I try to help him, but I am not getting the favors in return. I need to exercise, and I have asked him to walk with me, but he never gets around to it.

He is a lot more disciplined than I am and sometimes I get a little envious. On the other hand, I am overjoyed because he looks good and is healthier. That's what I really want for the both of us.

    Pooh, I could certainly relate to you saying you had a heart attack and have to follow a low sodium, low sugar, lo char hydrate food plan. Me too, except I am also diabetic!
I had Congestive Heart Failure the middle of October, last year. My weight really blossomed about 20-30 pounds of fluid, with 2% hart function. I was hospitalized and given Lasx for water retention. My weight has gone steadily up as the dose of Lasx changed. I went from taking 80 mg down to 20 mg which may be too little. I'll find out tomorrow when I see the Cardiologist.
I put you down as a new SparkFriend, I hope that's OK with you. It seems like we might have a lot in common!

    And so we keep trying. One pound at a time.
Thanks for the encouraging words.

    Men overall, lose weight faster than we do. It isn't fun but the truth. It sucks but it just is. I don't like it any better then you do. My husband went on a fast, lost 10 pounds, and just kept going. Makes me mad how easy he looses weight. but it is what it is.

shrug. I wish it was different. He has lost 30 pounds without trying. I have lost twenty in two years. What's up with that???

Welcome to the team!

Dealing with setbacks

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

It is so hard to get back on track. If I could just stay focused, and not let other people interrupt my time I would do a lot better. I have a problem with saying NO to other people.

I am learning to keep taking baby steps and not just give up. I stopped exercisig last July and haven't been back on track. However my co-worker and I take a 5 minute break and run in place, stretch, punches, etc. every 99 minutes. Some days we are too busy when the timer goes off, but we try to do something throughout the day.

    Good for you! All those small breaks will add up!! When I get impatient, I try to remember that small daily (healthy) habits will add up to a revolutionary change in my life. Here's to a healthier YOU! emoticon

The struggle to stay focus

Saturday, October 11, 2008

It seems like the more I try, the more I struggle. YO-YO dieting has been my adult life. BUT - now it won't go away. It seems like it's part of the menopausal curse some women suffer.

I was exercising diligently, but I keep running into obstacles from lower back pain with the machines/weights, ham and knee problems on the treadmill to tendonitis in my thumbs with the weights from water exercises.

Now that school has started back, I have to pick up my grandchildren which makes me get to the gym later to exercise - if I go. I don't like to workout when it is crowded, and the childcare is usely over the limit when I go later.

When I get one of those food binge rollercoasters, it seems like I won't ever get off. I am going to start back posting because it helps me to at least watch what I am eating.

I thought it was going to be easier to stay on track with SP, but I need to work even harder. I have tools here that will help me if I just keep pulling from the resources.
