Time Flies :)

Can't believe it's the middle of August already. I started to see a dietician in January because I wasn't losing anything not a single pound for almost 6 months even with the increase in activity. She had me tracking & printing my daily sheets for 2 months--long story short not eating enough so she changed my calories to 1400 per day which I still struggle to attain. Also, gave me a range for protein/carbs/fibre/sodium/fat
s etc. So was doing my best to make the new levels but, still not losing!! So frustrating. I was having problems with severe bloating after eating (up to 5 in gain around waist/hips. So middle of June my daughter set me up with a nutritionist who did all sort of testing. Said I was very sensitive to Beef/Dairy/Cane Sugars/Peanuts & oils/ & last but not least Chocolate--but not coco--it's the sugars used in the chocolate which cause the problem. Also, told me I had a fungal infection & put me on some herbal pills & said to follow her diet which besides the foregoing also for 2 months avoided wheat/yeast/vinegars & mushrooms. So called the dietician & went over it with her--she okayed it as long as I kept up my nutritional levels she had set. So here I am almost 2 months later & down almost 16 lbs. Bloating has stopped/sleeping better. So going to give credit to them both for jump starting my weight loss again. I know I still have a ways to go but this loss is at least giving me hope emoticon Going for a follow up with nutrionist next week & can't wait to do a comparison wtih new levels versus the ones in June. Just hoping this continues till it's all off!!
