And then there's....

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I sat eating breakfast this morning at Subway and was thinking ... what is the best "weigh" to lose this weight.....

I know deep down there isn't magical "weigh". There's no miracle "weigh" to get rid of it.

But I keep asking myself --- What's the BEST "weigh"?

I think I know why people reach out to some of the extreme "weighs" of losing weight. I think it gives a filling of doing something. If I eat a sensibly and exercise I think for me there's a tendancy to think I'm "not doing enough".

There other day I was telling Randy2 -- I think I'm going to go extreme for a while and really hit it hard. That lasted until the next meal (if that long).

But I think one of the things that happens when I "diet" -- I eat differently. I'm not conforming to another's eating plan but eating less. so some of those weird diets ie: 3 hotdogs, 3 eggs and 3 bananas -- it's all I got -- it's all I had to worry about.

I started to say the most effective way I lost was 3 meals per day -- no sugar, no snacks. But I know this isn't true. I'm maintaining now and the way I lost was the SP way --- learning to eat healthy meals --- track my healthy meals etc.

I missed a few days online with the weekend. But I'm here -- I'm working and living my plan.

TOGETHER WE CAN DO WHAT WE COULD NEVER DO ALONE.

and I'm here because ' MY MIND IS LIKE A BAD NEIGHBORHOOD AND I SHOULDN'T GO THERE ALONE.

    Jared lost a lot of weight eating Subway! emoticon

    Keeping your health in mind is my best advice. I know you need to be conscience of your sodium. Planning & Tracking are your two best friends in this life style adjustment (but, you already know that).

    emoticon lol, I understand the urge & the been there, done that, many ways... by any chance do you remember the 7 eggs one day, 7 bananas one day, 7 oranges 1 day... might have been called the ski team diet... when I had the 7 oranges, I broke out in hives (discovered I was intolerant to too much vit c like gramps, sun too) and... and remember those silly candy diet aides that were supposed to suppress appetite... NOT!!! I thought they made gr8 caramels, LOL(hugs) j
