BRONHI's SparkPeople Blog BRONHI's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Intuitive Eating Post #2 I don't resent SparkPeople or my time spent using SparkPeople and following the dieting advice laid out here because <BR> <BR> 1. SparkPeople instilled some permanent, healthy habits in me, that I was able to keep while dieting or not dieting. For example, I started SP with simple substitutions like substituting brown or whole-wheat for white. I still wholeheartedly prefer the taste of whole wheat bread and pasta, brown rice, etc over the white alternative. <BR> <BR> 2. SparkPeople gave me ...

Tue, 29 Jul 2008 21:28:41 EST Artificial Sweeteners Great article: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>cles.aspx?aid=10374 </link> <BR> <BR> I don't eat too many of them, only in certain Starbucks drinks but I need to cut down. Mon, 2 Jun 2008 14:15:43 EST Update I haven't made much progress in the weight department. I won't call it a plateau because I haven't been doing what I was supposed to do (healthy food and exercise). If I had been good and saw no progress then THAT would be a plateau :) <BR> <BR> I have a new inspiration to lose weight. Originally I wanted to meet my goal by early June 2008 because I was going to Mannheim, Germany for the summer. Now I might be going to Germany for TWO semesters starting early October 2008. So I need to get i... Mon, 5 May 2008 22:50:18 EST The SECOND 10% down My last blog post was at 211 pounds, after I had lost 24 pounds. Well today I'm officially 188.2 pounds and have lost another 10% of my body weight, so since starting SP in February (really, I got involved in March =) I've lost 20% of my body weight or more than 45 pounds. <BR> <BR> I hit a plateau once school started in late August, but hopefully I'm back to losing weight again. It's still so weird. I've lost 45 pounds but I still basically feel the same. My sister asks me how much I weigh ... Tue, 20 Nov 2007 17:19:56 EST The first 10% down On Monday (yesterday) I hit 211 pounds, meaning I've lost 10% of my body weight or 24 pounds since starting SP in February. I'm so happy, I haven't been at this weight in about FOUR YEARS. Four years ago I was in high school! <BR> <BR> I've been losing 2 lbs a week for the past few weeks and I hope I continue to do so. I don't even know how I'm doing it. I've been furiously trying to stay in my caloric range and except for a really bad day over the weekend, I've been good for about a week an... Tue, 10 Jul 2007 00:39:14 EST Writing it Out This is my first entry and I guess it's taken this long because I never thought it was important to write anything here. I've come to believe that writing things down will let me analyze my behavior so that I can see my strengths and weaknesses. And maybe if I write what I want to do, I'll have more motivation to do it! <BR> <BR> I've been eating either 100 or so calories over my suggested intake or I've been at the higher level of the caloric range. I'm not stuffing myself with too much "ba... Fri, 25 May 2007 23:10:36 EST
