to the team, MAGICKCAT. I am right there with you. I am dreaming of going to Disney soon. You have a great idea about the pins. With all the Disney fanatics out there, I'm pretty sure that they would sell.
Welcome and my only advice is NEVER give up on either one of your goals. On getting healthy find what works for you, use SP to its max. On getting to Disney, find a way to save one penny at a time, eventually it will add up to a trip. When you get to the point where you think you have saved enough, ask us lots of questions so we can help you find ways to make those pennies you have saved go as far as possible.
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.
i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 28 pounds in 14 weeks. 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.
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 170 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 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 22 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 totally worth it. once i reach my goal i will change my menu. not until then.
portion sizes are critical to your success. exercise has to become a way of life. good luck
I am a Disney Lover that is working on getting there....yes, I am a Big Time Disney Lover but have not had the money to go....but I'm working towards it! I love it so much that I started making Disney Pendants by up-cycling Pins that had no backs. I want to start a lil web store to sell them soon. I have been a Disney Fan since I was a child, and will FIND a way to get there! I just had to hook up with others that love it too....I just happened upon this team and thought, they have to be super nice folks. I just joined SP last week. Have a Supercalafagalisticexpealadocious Day!
