Just Had To Tell You The News!

Saturday, March 16, 2013

I'm on a 5% Challenge and my teammates are the Dawgs emoticon and this morning was weigh-in and

I LOST 2.8 lbs!

Of course that doesn't coincide with my ticker loss because I was weighing in on Spark on a different day. But as of today, it will be the same as the Challenge weigh in.

I see you all mainly attribute my wt. loss to the Krill Oil. Remember, I am also on a very limited diet. And, if Krill has any magic potions in it for me, it is because my body was in dire need of healing from all the abuse I gave it over the years. It is a supplement, so do seek out your doctor's advice. I know there are many people on Spark suffering from different illnesses (not just obesity!) - so please remember. . .

THIS IS JUST ABOUT ME!

Actually, I was inspired to continue writing about my case because of another member's blog that I read yesterday who had all the symptoms I did while on the Paleo and very restricted diet. At one point, I thought I would die before my husband! So, whatever diet you are following, please do be careful. Just because there are teams for all kinds of diets here on Spark, doesn't mean any one of them might be right for you. Take precautions.

Hm, I guess that's about it for this week. Will let you know how I am doing down the road. But I never felt better in years.

Yahoo!...or I should say, WOOF, WOOF!!!!!

And thank you for all the responses!!!

    As you say, "Just because there are teams for all kinds of diets here on Spark, doesn't mean any one of them might be right for you. Take precautions. "

Very wise advice!

    You are doing great!! My naturopath has me on 5 omega 3 fish oil a day. Haven't noticed a weight loss, but he is adamant that all his patients take fish oil. Like you said , you are on a very limited diet, and that is most likely the biggest reason for your weight loss. Krill oil will help your body for all kinds of things it battles. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Helen,

Hey, Girl!! emoticon There is nothing that tastes so good as losing weight feels, right?

I got on the scale and added a pound. emoticon But I think that might be because I ate dinner at 9 P.M., and it hasn't had time to pass.

Nevertheless, I will keep going, as I know you will. emoticon
