It literally lighted up my face. However, I have 10 days for SP's goal weight deadline which is to lose another 10 pounds. I can't lose 10 pounds in 10 days.... So I won't make my goal date unfortunately. But I feel I will make my goal weight eventually. <BR> <BR> I di... Tue, 9 Jul 2013 06:29:55 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 9 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5410342 Tuesday's Weight: <BR> <BR> 130.8 no clothes <BR> 131.7 thin clothing <BR> <BR> Well I was right. I gained a pound by eating that burger on Monday. Haven't exercised yet, but it's only the 4th. I did make 2 cups worth of vegan cheese this morning. I will make another 2 cups when I taste the final result of this one, with modifications if needed. Why? Because my yogurt is too starchy to eat. With the cheese you cook it (and it calls for tapioca starch which is already in my yogurt) and the s... Thu, 4 Jul 2013 07:44:41 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5407065 Saturday's Current Weight: 131.5 pounds <BR> <BR> Today's current weight (in case I gain today because of eating a burger for the holiday): <BR> <BR> 129.7 pounds no clothes <BR> 130.7 pounds thin clothing <BR> <BR> So I lost weight finally again. So happy about that. But now it's July, and I said I would try to start to work out. Well today is a holiday.... so maybe I will start um... tomorrow. I hope. <BR> <BR> So I made the yogurt on Saturday. That's why I delayed the post. It sat in ... Mon, 1 Jul 2013 07:55:36 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5402897 Sorry a day late on writing this.... <BR> <BR> Current Weight (Tuesday): <BR> <BR> 131.5 no clothes (for WW) <BR> 132.6 thin clothing (for SP) <BR> <BR> Gained a bit again since Saturday. I'm going to have to really make good on my plan of doing some exercise in July. <BR> <BR> My yogurt starter came today though. I haven't made any yogurt yet. I'll probably make some on the weekend. Or something. Then I will tell you how it tastes.... if it even turns out. <BR> <BR> The weight gain co...

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 21:49:19 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5398565 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 132.4 thin clothing <BR> <BR> I gained 4 ounces from Tuesday, and gained 1 ounce from last Saturday. I manually checked my calorie maximum daily intake and it has been reduced to 1272 from 1305, so perhaps since I kept eating according to 1305 I gained a bit, and I'm still bloated. So starting today I'm going with 1272 as my max calories for the day. I'll see how I am on Tuesday and next Saturday. <BR> <BR> I finally made some English muffins. They taste so good... Sat, 22 Jun 2013 20:38:23 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5394035 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 131.2 no clothing <BR> 132.0 thin clothing <BR> <BR> So I lost some ounces but I am back to the same weight that I was last Tuesday. So really I didn't lose anything. I may have went over my calories last night by a small amount though since I ate out. I ate an approximate 600 calorie spaghetti dish which left me very hungry after (maybe because I skipped lunch in anticipation of eating a huge calorie dinner)... then I had a fruit smoothie and some prunes. <BR> <... Tue, 18 Jun 2013 23:08:46 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5390651 Current Weight from Saturday: <BR> <BR> 132.3 thin clothing <BR> <BR> I gained about 3 ounces from Tuesday's weigh in on Saturday. But I went over the 1305 daily calories on Friday (again) and I'm feeling kind of bloated. <BR> <BR> So I started making my vegan cheese on Friday. It's still culturing right now. I'm using sunflower seeds instead of cashews since they were cheaper. I'm letting it culture until the early morning on Monday. Then it goes in the fridge for half a day. Then I can ... Sun, 16 Jun 2013 09:51:16 EST 1 Month on SP http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5386582 I reviewed my data for 1 month on SP. The day I went gluten free and all days after are the only days that matter right now. I see that I have too many carbs on most days and not enough protein. I have the recommended amount of fat almost every day though. I try not to go over 1305 calories, because that's what I manually calculated for my daily calorie intake since all these different websites and apps were giving me different numbers. I only went over those calories 2 days in a row. I norma... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 06:46:51 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5386369 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 131.0 no clothes <BR> <BR> 131.9 thin clothing <BR> <BR> Ok so I lost a bit since Saturday thank god. I'm on a quest to make vegan cheese now though since I can't really eat cheese. I'm also going to make yogurt, and cream cheese. All things I miss eating. I haven't baked since so making this cheese, well yogurt first, will be interesting. Waiting for 1 ingredient to come via mail since I couldn't find it in the stores. If I could find soy free and dairy free yogu... Tue, 11 Jun 2013 22:42:39 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5382664 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 133.0 thin clothing for SP <BR> <BR> I have only lost 3 ounces since the last post. That's not even half a pound. Then again I went over my daily calories twice this week, on Thursday and Friday. But this was because I didn't plan all the meals for the 2 days. I have to try really hard to plan ahead for all meals or I will go over again. <BR> <BR> Still having fiber problems. I need to find a way to eat more. I bought quinoa yesterday and had it this morning with... Sat, 8 Jun 2013 17:42:24 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5378199 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 132.4 no clothes <BR> 133.3 thin clothing. <BR> <BR> So I lost half a pound since last Tuesday, and nothing since this past Saturday. Not happy about it but at least I still lost something I guess. <BR> <BR> I finally tasted my ice cream cake. I added homemade marshmallow cream on top but it never froze, so I won't be adding that on top again. It also increased the calories/points so I couldn't eat 1 slice. Back to the drawing board for the ice cream cake. I want... Tue, 4 Jun 2013 16:44:44 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5374886 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 133.3 pounds with thin clothing <BR> <BR> Lost 1 pound since last Saturday's SP Weigh In! I have a ways to go til 118 pounds. <BR> <BR> I said I wasn't going to bake anymore. Well I baked a pie. I used some of the gingerbread cookies I made a couple days ago. Yes I made 197 gingerbread cookies. I really wanted gingerbread cookies. They aren't in the freezer yet. But anyways I used half of them for the pie crust and my ICE CREAM CAKE CRUST! The fake ice cream part ... Sat, 1 Jun 2013 18:47:19 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5370032 Current Weight: <BR> <BR> 133.0 no clothes <BR> 133.8 thin clothing <BR> <BR> I've lost a pound since last Tuesday's WW weigh in. Yay! <BR> <BR> I failed at making the bagels. I tried 2 times. Actually no. 4 times. 3 times with 1 batch of dough. They just wouldn't rise! So the first batch turned into mini unfluffy pretzels, while the 2nd batch turned into 5 tortillas. <BR> <BR> Last night I tried making bread again, but this time with batter and no bread machine, and no yeast, just bakin... Tue, 28 May 2013 07:23:22 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5367951 Current Weight: 134.4 pounds <BR> <BR> I have lost almost 1 pound since Tuesday. I still have about 14 or 15 pounds left to shed until I get to my goal weight. <BR> <BR> I made my own soy/dairy free butter yesterday. It took the entire evening. But it was worth it. I did 3 different flavours. Now I can butter my breads, bake, and saute with them. I was skeptical at first since it was made with coconut but there was no trace of the coconut flavour. Amazing. <BR> <BR> I think I also made pu... Sat, 25 May 2013 22:13:49 EST WW Weight In Day: Week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5363670 Here is my current weight: <BR> <BR> No clothes: 134.3 pounds (what I use for WW) <BR> Thin clothing: 135.2 pounds (what I use for SP) <BR> <BR> So, according to the SP weight, I have lost 2 pounds since starting on this website 2 weeks ago. That's good. <BR> <BR> I made gluten free naan today. Never had naan before but, I found the recipe on a gluten free website and I was running out of flat bread to eat. It almost turned into a disaster, when I realized I was using chickpea flour to sub... Tue, 21 May 2013 16:13:58 EST Gluten Free Cooking/Baking Errors That Aren't Errors At All http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5361688 I know I said I'd post the next post on Tuesday, but I just fixed my salad dressing that I made earlier today and got excited with what happened. I also made gluten free pizza from scratch, with a no rise dough of course. One day I'll try the rising dough again. The pizza came out ok, because I did a test run yesterday with the original recipe which was a flatbread. So now I have bread to eat! Plus pizza with a bunch of toppings! However, making the flatbread was a bit hard. I had to keep it ... Sun, 19 May 2013 23:59:56 EST SP Weigh in Day: SP week 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5359981 I started SP at 138 pounds. Today, 1 week later I am 137.1 pounds. I have lost very close to 1 pound in a week. Hopefully next week another pound will be gone. <BR> <BR> I've made some major changes in my diet. <BR> <BR> Along with being soy free now and lactose free, I am gluten free. I started the gluten free diet 2 days ago on Thursday because of my immense constant pain in my knees. So far, I haven't felt any random debilitating pain, just dull aches when climbing stairs. <BR> <BR> I... Sat, 18 May 2013 07:55:13 EST WW Weigh In Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5356003 Today is the start of week 2, day 1 for WW (free). I weighed myself this morning twice. Once without clothes, and once with light clothing. <BR> <BR> No Clothes: 136.3 pounds (WW) <BR> Clothes: 137.1 pounds (SP) <BR> <BR> I have lost 0.7 pounds in 1 week according to WW. <BR> I have lost 0.9 pounds in a couple days according to SP. <BR> <BR> SP weigh in day is not until this coming Saturday, so I'll see how I am then too. <BR> <BR> I downloaded a bunch of weight/health/calorie/fibre apps ... Tue, 14 May 2013 08:27:42 EST First Post http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5354437 Well tomorrow (Monday) is day 7 of the WW program that I am re-doing for free. I will be weighing myself on Tuesday morning, before eating, in my bathroom. <BR> <BR> Thanks to SparksPeople Teams, I learned a lot about thyroid disease and "bad foods", as well as weight gain from some depression meds. I don't think the depression meds are making me gain weight since I was on them before I started ballooning to 165 pounds. My thyroid levels were always "normal". It was slightly higher than no...
