To break out of the same-weight rut of the past few weeks, I decided to plan a super-active calorie-burner weekend, with an emphasis on having fun. I took the dog for a 5.4-mile hike on a gorgeous day, and signed up for an evening blues-dance class, followed by more dancing--in addition to my usual Saturday morning yoga+dog walk. It worked!

Don't forget to get out your measuring tape every now and then because when that scale isn't budging, you are losing inches that you don't think about!

If you're working out, as well as counting calories, like I am, it helps to change up your work out every once in a while. Keep your body guessing. If you've hit a plateau, change things up! Also, I've found a cheat day every once in a while doesn't hurt. Just don't go overboard with it, lol. I'm sure everyone's heard this before, but they're things I keep in mind.

~Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.~

The way I keep my weight loss going is to keep my fat down in the 20's, my calorie range is 1200 - 1500, I never go over 1200 calories, my carbs should be 198 which I'm having trouble
keeping it down to 198, my protein should be 78. The carbs & protein are on the high end. My
fiber is usually 32 or less. That's how I keep losing weight! I started out needed to lose 80 lbs., I now need to lose 38 lbs. It's been a struggle. I drink 90-110 ounces of water a day. I'm
a controlled diabetic. My A1C is between 5-5.3. My blood sugar in the morning is usually good, but the rest of the day it's low. Like in the 70's. My weight has been lost in the last few
years. I hope everyone has a Super & Blessed Saturday! Linda! emoticon

gives me strength. 4:14 Even so, you have done well to share
with me in my present difficulty. Mark 13:37 I say to you what I say to everyone: Watch for Him!

My waist has gone down 1 inch in 30 days but, my weight has gone up 3 pounds because of eating too much over the holiday. I use my weight and waist measurement to make it more accurate. I started TOPS Wednesday. I have lost 36 pounds since Feb.1

I track my weight daily and the only measurement I do is my waist because I find it the most accurate. I check my waist every 14 days.

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

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 it…it's really just a security blanket…

You're only as old as you feel! And never stop moving…however you do it!

Have an awesome weekend! Betsy

Important for me to have my clothes feel looser emoticon

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:28
