walk at least 10,000 steps a day. my sister lost 93 pounds walking 15,000 steps a day.
find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.
i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 39 pounds .
i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.
it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.
i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.
you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.
I have gone from 198 to 159 pounds. i can now fit into a size 12 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 12 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.
one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth
i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

This is a great site for support and encouragement. I also like the many ways to get points for learning new things everyday.
I also love the food tracking section.

Get in the practice of using the Spark nutrition log to keep track of what you eat - even when you're using the other plan. It's a big help - I've taken 30+ pounds off. You'll find friendly people here on Spark & help when you need it..

Hello, I'm Susan from Plymouth, MA. I was searching the web for a recipe and found this site and figured I'd check it out. I am a 49 year old married 5 years to a great guy. Mom of 2 young men stepmom of two young ladies. I have been eating my husband's cooking and stress eating since I married and have put on more than 30 pounds. I decided to take control of my health before I turn 50 in October! A week ago I joined the Jillian Michaels site and lost 5 pounds. I like the menu plan and exercises there, so I'll stay there until my 13 week payment is used up and learn what I can there. But I haven't been finding her message boards very welcoming to newbies. So I hope this is different! If anyone has any advice, it is welcome!
