I am so hungry! I am eating very healthy but not enough to keep me full compared to what I use to eat. I am eating salad for the last four weeks to the point I do not want to eat. I have to spice up my diet plan so I can eat healthy and stay full so I do not think of food all day long. However, I will hang in there. emoticon emoticon

On my way to a healthy lifestyle!

McDougall's The Starch Solution

Our bodies are geared towards plant based starches, (beans, legumes, potatoes, corn, pumpkin, whole grain breads, whole grain pastas, etc.), that's why we crave them. There's enough fat and protein in them, that our bodies need. Cook and eat whole grain pasta with marinara sauce, pancakes made with oat flour. Make your own pizza crusts (without oils and cheese) and top it with marinara sauce, peppers, mushrooms, zuchini, pineapple and onions. My go to fast food is brown rice topped with lentil soup or beans... or brown rice topped w/cooked veggies(brocolli, corn, peas, kale and toppped w/a vegan mushroom gravy.

Avoid fats (trans fats/hydrogenated oils, refined veggie oils and saturated fats (animal products). Fats make you fat and sick. Good luck!

Concur - the tracking makes a very large difference for me.
The smack in the face awareness that my lunch, for example, was way overboard make a significant impression on me.

Since I've been tracking my calories, I've noticed a huge difference. The meal tracker on SP keeps me accountable. I'm seeing results now, where I hadn't before.

I agree about the Green Tea but if you are on Coumadin or Warfarin Sodium, be sure to check with your health care provider to adjust your medication because it is the same as other green vegetables and will raise havoc with your levels. I love it but am only allowed 1 C per day so have it for breakfast in the morning!

Thank God in all things!

Drink green tea. If you drink the bottled, get diet. Or make your own iced green tea at home. I drink two of these a day (or the bottled if I have that) when I have it made. I add lemon and lime slices to it.

Hi GrammaJanet,
Just read your post about the rebounder. If you're 64 and your mom is giving you advice, you have good genes! I use the rebounder (I'm 73). I put it behind a chair in the TV room and use the chair back for balance if I need itit's really just a security blanket

You're only as old as you feel! And never stop movinghowever you do it!

Have an awesome weekend! Betsy

Trying to remember there is life after the holidays. Working on staying grounded.

The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goals.
The tragedy lies in having no goals to reach.

My tip that I do daily. Get out of bed when you wake up. 5:30 for me this morning.then purposely do what ever your favorite workout is. For me it is my PT hip and upper body exercises alternately with indoor walking. ( for me it is with my walker- 89 yeas old-will be 90 in May)
Reached 9800 steps so far today.

Put your why you want to loose weight on your fridge or in your pocket or purse for when you
feel tempted to eat what you shouldn't. Great advise I got from face book today.

I am telling you all from my own experience.......the only things that make me succeed are :

1) Remembering my WHY am I changing my lifestyle (food, exercise, mentality etc....)

2) ACCOUNTABILITY (either to myself or to have an accountability friend, group, spouse, blog, ..etc)

If you keep thinking about these two things, your life will change in so many good ways..... : )

If you walk a lot for exercise you need to increase intensity by walking differently. Such as walk up and down stairs. walk with feet wide apart and walk backwards. Carry hand weights with you. I used to have a rebounder I walked and jumped on but my mom talked me in to thinking I was too old for one I could get hurt. I am only 64. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Focus on small, attainable goals.

When I initially returned to SparkPeople in December 2013 I set a large weight loss goal. Then I read the article, "The 10% Solution." It made so much sense that I adjusted my weight loss goal. It worked!

I think success breeds success by building momentum. Here's the link to the article if you're interested in reading and considering it www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat

Best wishes to all of you!

Happy to be losing even a little bit to keep me below goal! I feel the longer I can stay
below goal the more successful I will be in not gaining it back again as I have done so many time in my life. SP is keeping me from being a YO YO. So feeling grateful.

Good that the article covered overall fluid intake.

Further confirmation that this is the right track for me.

I have to keep changing things up. I reset my spark nutrition tracker goal every 10-20 pounds so that it stays relevant to my new weight.
Go to start
Track weight and click the little tab underneath it that says "edit goals"
Then go to the middle of the page under the blue print where it says "need help"
Click one of the choices
Fill in how much you want to lose or by what date you want to lose it and SAVE by scrolling down the page AFTER the box disappears to the SAVE button.



Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

I grew up in IL. I remember the summer heat well. Heat bothers my husband too, but he also has a heart condition. What I would suggest is either opting for an earlier walk, or possibly waiting until the temps drop a bit in the evening. If that doesn't work, then consider an indoor walk. You could do laps in an indoor mall. You could go to a gym. You could do Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds from the comfort of your home for free from YouTube. You could try a Sparkpeople indoor workout on the hotter days. There are options available. I hope that helps.

Never say never. I got this.

ABBY-ROAD what about walking around in a shopping centre! That would be air-conditioned in the summer? Not shop just do walking for 45 mins. Some shopping centres over here in Australia have walking groups and you can do walking after hours around the shopping centre either early morning or evenings

Perhaps a treadmill for home would help you could walk slowly with that while watching tv at least you could be indoors under your fan or with the air-conditioning on if you have it.

In the hot what about aqua aerobics or water walking classes at your local swimming pool. Or even an indoor Tai Chi / Qi Gong class or doing some DVD exercises at home can be free.

Hope these ideas help and that you are feeling much better now. Take care and remember to drink your water in the heat. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sometimes I wonder "what was I thinking?". Yesterday was hot, muggy and humid, but I went out to walk in the morning before it got too hot. I'm not a heat person, I actually would rather it was cold. Anyway, I walked about 45 minutes, drank plenty of water, but when I got home and sat down ... the sweat just poured down my face. I had no idea it was that hot out. I rinsed down my face with cool water (it was bright red) and just sat down to relax and regroup.

The rest of the day was a total loss, I felt sick to my stomach with a raging headache. Stupid me. My body isn't used to exercise in the heat, I'm going to have to rethink my walking plan. Not smart to walk in the heat when my body doesn't react well to heat and humidity.

Today is to be another miserable Chicago summer day with more storms predicted. I wanted to go and check out bicycles and try some out but that will be on hold until it is dry out. My first venture of trying to ride a bike is chronicled in my blog - can we say disaster?

4 days and muscle glycogen and associated water-loss have slowed up.
Focussing on fluid intake makes it much easier(more mind-full) to remember other good habits and tips.
It seems to be a trigger that concentrating on just 1 particular challenge can then be central to aiding a wider response in activities eg refusing a favorite food etc
Any subsequent successes are confidence-building.

Found that focussing on water intake has been beneficial for weightloss the last 3 days.

One of my problems is that I have a blood sugar drop in the afternoon around 3:00ish. I discovered Quest protein bars. A shot of protein and I'm good to go!

No worries Richard. I find it a great site for savings tips and much more. Have an extra awesome day. Other people also I'm sure may find both of the sites simple savings and cheapskates great! So glad you share simple savings.

You could share that in our team Holisitic Healthy Lifestyle if you like some in our team may like it also.
