I have put secret in quotes because it looks like it was and has been staring people in the face for a long time. I don't mind if people call me kooky or strange or a bit nuts. <BR> I decided after I worked out this formula to google this phenomenon to see if others have kind of noticed this too and found. <BR> http://www.goodnnatural.ca/uploadimages/<BR>formula_box.jpg <BR> and <BR> http://www.gnclivewell.com....

(crossing fingers) <BR> It is only day 3. <BR> My weight 3 days ago was 170.4 and was slipping upwards again. <BR> My weight today is 168. <BR> I have made a mixture of 1/2 lemon juice and 1/2 grapefruit juice and added water with it. <BR> Then I will make miso with 1/4 to a 3rd of a cup of my mixture in with it. <BR> It takes like miso with a little tang to it. <BR> I take this before breakfast, then before lunch...

My weight again was 140 pounds and its all my fault. I am going to go get measured for my wedding dress on my birthday. On the 15th of Feb is cut off time for my weight. <BR> I've had enough of feeling fat, Of clothing getting tight again and the fear of putting it all back on again. I am on the war path, with a goal of 120 pounds by the 15th of February, I am keeping my date with destiny. I am on a very strict diet of counting calories and am not wussing out this time, its m... Tue, 15 Jan 2008 00:44:56 EST Ok decided that just extra water is not cutting it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=587908 I'm going to keep up the water drinking, but input vs output I think has to be taken into consideration also now. So putting exercise into the equation also. Sat, 2 Jun 2007 22:36:56 EST Good Morning :-) Theory 2 is working well http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=586416 Day of experiment when trying to maintain on 1200 calories with some blow out days I was 127.8 <BR> weigh in yesterday after eating 2444 calories and drinking 16 glasses of water was also 127.8 <BR> and <BR> I'm weighing in at 126.2 pounds this morning <BR> Yesterday I ate 2175 calories so not as many as the day before (but I did not feel like eating that much) and 22 glasses of water. <BR> I was feeling a bit worried yesterday because I was sure by weight was going to go up. <BR> But no, I'm... Fri, 1 Jun 2007 17:47:32 EST ok new theory based on the previous one :-) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=584665 Theory 2: <BR> Our bodies aren't as stupid as we thought they were, the only reason why we are fat and aren't using the best of our brains is purely lack of nutrition. Yes lack of nutrition. Our bodies still accept food, but still don't utilise dehydrated and processed food properly because it does not come with enough water, so like a packet of dehydrated soup, add water through your day, your body releases energy because it recognises/registers the amount of food you are eating and slows yo... Thu, 31 May 2007 15:11:25 EST Experiment number I don't know what http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=584662 My weight is slowly going up again to my dismay. So instead of cutting calories, at least for today I have decided to have a calorie free day with a twist. I'm going to listen to my body. I've decided that I am going to give water more of a say. It is now 7.10am and I have already had 10 glasses of water, 1 almond slab and 1 Florentine, 1 egg and about to have a cup of Kellogg's all bran. <BR> Theory <BR> Body is saying that its hungry and is not full because I am missing something. Skin says... Thu, 31 May 2007 15:10:31 EST Christmas Day (Presently in New Zealand it is Boxing Day 26th Dec 12.57am) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=346504 I had always promised myself a calorie free day (as in no counting of calories) for my birthday and xmas. I was actually still sticking to calorie counting up to 4pm yesterday till I "gave in". I can't actually call it that cause I had promised myself this little pleasure. But to be very honest, I'm afraid. I have been so strict on counting calories and all that went bye-bye yesterday. Today is a new day. Today I have decided that I have enough knowledge to not have to track everything.... Mon, 25 Dec 2006 06:56:14 EST I have had chocolate again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=200562 Hunt's snack pack fat free chocolate pudding 3.5 oz cups are the yummiest and only 90 calories and no fat, did I mention No fat. <BR> I have also decided to limit my normal days calories down to 1000 - 1200 calories, so I can maintain my weight using those ever so tempting special meals when I get down to 9 stone 6pounds. Wed, 28 Jun 2006 05:43:50 EST For the first time ever http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=198035 I was able to fit into womens size 10 (US size 8), they are a little bit tight so the 2 pairs I bought are my treat and next goal clothes. I am so amazed, I never thought I would be able to do this well (was hoping sure). <BR> I am stopping myself from jumping up and down and screaming I've done it, I've fought my demons and I'm winning, I'm winning this. Sun, 25 Jun 2006 03:01:02 EST Naughty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=110300 I've decided the less stress the better this week, this is the most stressful week of my working year. I am still exercising as this is very stress relieving. I'm not going to worry about food allowances etc this week. Stress levels are far more important to me. Mon, 13 Feb 2006 03:01:58 EST
