Well, I am on day 13 of my new eating life style. It maybe not suit some, but it is working for
me. 13 days with no cookie or sweets and i walk around them every day.
I have like many on sparks given up so gained a few pounds . I can not sit and do nothing and
I will stay on my new plan few mths to see if it works.
I am counting calories as they are easier than points or low gi or other ways i have tried.
To lose we must eat less than we are eating if were over weight by any amount.
Ok i need to lose about 8 pounds some say oh that's not much .
If your 5 foot 2 it is and it to me is same as someone needing to lose 100.
It takes dedication and will power and the desire to change ones body.
I have found out i was snacking a lot and counting calories will show you what you use to eat
I am keeping my calorie range under 1,000 or close as i can and frankly i am full due to fruit and
To lose one pound you got to give up 500 calories a day i have read so that is a lot in itself.
Now i look on back of pkgs not front and i count before i eat. What good does it do to count
or write down after one has eaten like at end of the day.
If i chose a food it is to high i chose a different one. Its that simple
I am eating eggs , bacon , some deer meat thanks to son in law . It is high in b 12 i am
low on all time on meds for due to lots surgery.
I am mostly eating fruit but counting calories not just eating all day.
I noticed i am not hungry now and have cookies in my house and have not even wanted
then in these 13 days .
Under lots stress as i am sick with broncitious still and grandbaby is sick . I have not given
in to the sugar or cookies.
I keep thinking ok if i eat one i eat three or more and all the days of work are lost.
This keeps me going .
I gave up sweet tea for water and coke 0 some say not good but if it gets me off sugar i go
I gave up all white rice and white noodles and pancakes.
Really i was eating low cost foods and not saving my health to save a dollar.
I shop now in fruit and vegetable isle and no cheese. Have some good light dannon yogurt
is very tasty
I have no one to encourage me and feel alone in this fight .
I have an esteem so need to get the weight off my tummy it is bad on my heart and ostomy.
I will as i am motivated now by this desire to live for my grandchild.
My only sister died in her 50s from weight.
I never had no issue with it till i hit 60s now i am almost 64 so i got to fight it now.
All i can say is if you do not want to diet or eat better ok. Try to not put down those who do
Try to encourage them by at least saying if you feel the need to do this go for it.
Others often say oh you dont need to or what your not eating this etc etc.
Let people chose.
My granny use to say if you cant say something good .... say nothing.
Fruit is the key one cup of strawberry will fill you up a long time and bunch of cookies will not.
I am spending same on food i am just not buying pork and fatty meat or cheese or white
Stay in your fruit and vegetable isle hit others for one thing like coffee or tea.
Good luck to all who are trying and those who are not hay our life is or should be our choice
Just read so much on spark of fokes putting others down . Or saying oh go on eat you need
to eat or eat this or that. Someone just starting out dont need this its like permission to eat.
Say to them keep on your plan and your achieve your goal.
Life is about choices and i am chosing mine to lose .
Doing yard work and walking the land will help also which i am doing .
Cant be on much but i read any mail written with caring.
I am done listing to negative feedback on sparks or anywhere.
I am a mom and grandma and i made it in life most of my years alone.
Divorced one husband and lost my best soul mate over 20 years ago .
I have a brain so let me do my own plan and chose my own path
Thanks and again good luck to all who are fighting the good fight
