Thank you for your replies. I do use the Nutrition page and log in everything I eat. I really love Sparkpeople. I exercise 3-4 days a week. I noticed, the other day when I checked the graph after I ate, I did have more carbs than usual. I will admit I am having some concerns when I log in my meals that some of the food that I think should be O carbs and no calories DO have calories and carbs. For instance I had a home grown Cucumber, it had some calories, I believe a few carb too. What I didn't understand it had less calories with the skin on than it did without the skin Why? I thought Cucumbers had nothing in them as far as calories or carbs.
When I do put the food into the Nutrition I have to have the exact name of the food or the calories are wrong.When I see the calories on the Nutrition page and then I see the label on the package they are not the same when it comes to calories. Why? Like the bread I eat is Healthy Life High Fiber 100%Whole wheat and it's only 35 calories but when I log it on the Nutrition page it shows 80 calories. Only two pieces are 70 calories. So the calories I do on the Nutrition page don't match up with the label on the package.. It's higher than what the label on the package says.
I drink 8-14 glasses of water a day, I thought maybe 14 might be too much water. I try and eat only fresh veggies cooked but sometimes I get the frozen packages also in case I run out of the fresh. On the fruit I eat strawberries, blueberries, bananas, grapes,apples, peaches when in season. I try not to eat too many in one day, but some days that is what I grab instead of something not healthy. On vegetables I eat Spinach, Zucchini, red potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, beans,(not all the time)cucumbers, tomatoes, Turnip greens(frozen), Frozen corn on the cob. The bread I only eat the Healthy Life 35 or 45 calories.
On some occasion when I wait too long to eat, I have a sandwich with 1 oz of light potato chips. I've lost 56.8 lbs.( WW and some with Curves)
I'm not looking for a weight loss every week, but I sure would like to get rid of the bloating I get Mon and Tues. :) Maybe with the new weigh in change I'll do a lot better. Hopefully anyway. I'm not giving up.. I'm going to hit my Lifetime goal one day, and I'm determined to do it too!
The reason I had stayed with Tuesdays weigh in is because I was a member of WW and that was my weigh in day at the meetings. I got tired of the Pts all the time so my sister introduced me to Curves and I love it better than WW. I don't mind putting in the calories. It's so much easier than trying to find the pts for the food I eat. So instead of changing days I stuck with Tues for Curves also. I decided last night before I went to bed I'd change my weigh in day to Wednesday or Thursdays. I do use the bathroom before I weigh in and only have my under clothes on. This bloating all started AFTER I had my colonoscopy several years ago. Before I had it I had no problems.
This puzzles me in a way, because I am one that eats about the same thing every day, so why would it make me bloated on Mon and Tues, and not the rest of the week????? I used to put lemon juice (from a bottle) in my water, but I thought that might be causing the bloating. It said in an article that real lemon is much better. So I'm going to pick up a bag when I go grocery shopping tomorrow. I was out one day eating at Subway. I put some lemon juice into my water, after I ate I was running to the bathroom :( So I only put lemon juice in water at home now :-) Sometimes I wish it would give me the same effect on the morning or my WI... I'd really weigh in light.
Anyway.. I do hope this new day to weigh in helps and I can find a way to get rid of this bloating on Mondays and Tuesdays.
