New Job, New Life? Seeking consistency


Monday, February 25, 2013

I do not have a diagnosis of diabetes but with my family history, I am concerned.
I have lost 34 pounds with spark people but have been on plateau for 2.5 years.
I have taken a job that is 1 mile from the gym that my good friends take water aerobics classes and meeting them there will help me get there.
The weather was quite cold and I do not have a wet suit but I am going to try attending anyway... ;I just do not want to get sick.
I want to get to the goal set by my doctor of 166. Just loosing inches is fine but I must take off that last 20 pounds. most of this is whining.
My question is how do I get myself into the habit of eating at the right times.
I often skip breakfast and lunch and don't start meals until I get home from work at 2.
This is setting me up to be very hungry... I am not hungry in the morning some days I force myself to have a yogurt and fruit.
But I am not consistent. I know that is the secret.

    Have you tried raw fruit and veggie smoothies? That works for me in the mornings when I don't feel like eating, and ups my freggie count!
