How many times have I whined.... or did you whine when the scale did not move..... We knew we were losing inches and getting toned, but the scale really messes with our heads. <BR> <BR> Do you know that feeling after losing a certain amount of weight or inches where you don't feel that icky bloated feeling, that for the first time in a long time you feel better, but you still have weight to lose, but you just don't feel so bloated. <BR> <BR> Well, I think that is inches.

Sat, 10 Mar 2012 13:20:02 EST Love what Chris Powell said today on Dr. Oz Show Today on the Dr. Oz show his guest Chris Powell (Extreme Makeover, weight loss edition) said something I felt was brilliant, so I thought I'd share. <BR> <BR> We all know that giving up our favorite guilty foods in not a lifestyle change that makes sense.

I finished two class projects and now I'm studying for finals next week. <BR> <BR> I was nervous, I have to be honest. When I started this week I wondered if I was going to feel that old feeling...

This is how I roll with my veggies. I took these pictures during the Fall, but never posted them. Today I'm making a new batch so I thought I would share. I noticed it was much easier for me to get my fruits than my veggies. Fruits have more sugar and calories and I needed to find a way to get more vegetables. I love this idea and it works great for me. <BR> <BR> I take any veggies on sale.. cucumbers, tomato, onions, cabbage, celery, radish, bellpepper..etc... <BR> <BR> Add cilantro... yum <BR> <BR> Squeeze lemons, lime...

I was confident that after 10 months of being successful on Spark, that I would never go backwards, but I did. I was only giving an half-a** effort and stopped logging my food. Before I knew it, I was over eating, not exercising or even logging into Spark at all.

I'm not a professional YET, but I'm a student at a University studying nutrition and I have something to say. <BR> <BR> FIRST... beware! Once you start eating carbs again ( which you will) you will gain back the weight PLUS more. LOW CARB diets actually cause you to lose water weight at first... 10 pounds...
