First journal entry

Sunday, July 22, 2007

As a challenge at the 60+ community....I'm making my first blog/journal entry. Who'd a ever thought that I'd be at a loss for words.????

I've been encouraged a little over the past month and a half to have lost a few pounds. It is coming off VERRRY slowly. I know part of that is due to lack of exercise. However, I can remember, that for me, exercise also increases my appetite. That's poor excuse for a lack of working out. I keep thinking of it every day....it hovers there in the back of my mind. I just don't get myself to the gym. I guess I'm like that person I read about who is "all or nothing".

It's been a year back on June 10 since I joined SP....in the first six months I finally lost 10 lbs....now I've lost 16....When I hear of people losing 60-80 or more, I'm amazed. None of my loss has been water weight at least as it's coming off slowly. I'm lucky when it's one lb. in a week.

Lots of times I'm still very hungry....portions had gone waay out of control. I keep writing it all down and that helps me keep up or down I might say.

    Cheryl, are you using the nutrition tracker to help you keep track of what you eat? I've found drinking plenty of water and getting enough fiber will help keep those hunger pangs at bay. Try not to go below your calorie range. SP set one up for you. Good luck! Ramona

    Cheryl, congratulations on your first blog! Good job. You just keep on trying like you have been and you will continue to see the pounds drop. It definitely is better to see them drop slowly. Then they will stay off! It is changing those habits that is helping and watching the portions. Keep up the good work. Rosy
