It's been hard to start again.

Friday, August 19, 2011

Starting again.

The good news is I only gained 4 pounds in my little self sabatage.

Wednesday was good, Thursday was bad, Today will be good.

I really want this, but I keep deciding to eat like crap. Whats the deal?

I want it because I feel like crap at this weight. How is it that food keeps winning?

Goal 1: 200 lbs by December. I know I can do it.

    I know how you feel. Does it help you to put your thoughts out on a blog? Sort of like you are reaching out to others to share? I have just started blogging this week and that is how I feel about it. I want to use any of the Spark tools that are available to help me to get back on track quickly when I have lost focus. I am on the one day challenge team and the challenge today was to give a goodie to someone on Spark and I am going to send you a goodie for motivation.
Keep your eye on your goal and you will get there!

find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 24 pounds in 9 weeks. i cook

4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 196 to 172 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

portion sizes are critical to your success. exercise has to become a way of life. good luck
