hi! i also have a serious problem with portion control. i don't use dinner plates any more, just the saucer and salad/ bread-n-butter plate. like you i started with 10 minutes. there are some really good dvd's that have seated training, some right here on spark! "coach nicole" has some really great videos. and i have to say, you weight loss is truly impressive and inspiring! so nice to meet you!

emoticon I am late today. Judy - I eat pretty much the same thing and measure it. I also use lean cuisine and weight watcher meals because I do have a problem with portion control. I started with 10 minutes of chair exercises and now am up to 15 minutes. I am in a wheel chair so I don't move very well. I am just glad I didn't gain. I am trying to work up to going to water therapy. I started at 556 and am down to 454- I had a gastric sleeve and am hoping to get an RNY this winter. But I have to lose 30 lbs. I am probably repeating myself but oh well!! emoticon Thanks for the input. I really appreciate it. emoticon Hope everyone has a good night! emoticon

Have you tried the SP recipes? If you go to the top of the page where it says Articles & Videos, you will be able to look of a huge amount of foods and how to prepare them. You might want to give them a try. They really do have some good and easy recipes there.

Keep up the good work!

AUNTALICE - You mentioned that your weight was the same Are you measuring and/or weighing your foods? Be sure you also tract all foods/liquids that go into your mouth whether they be good foods or bad foods. This will show you where you what foods work for you and which ones don't. Also, are you exercising? Walking is a great exercise for us. Walking is the main source of exercise for me. emoticon and together emoticon . emoticon .

I'm in to week 3 and trying to continue to exercise on a regular. I started hip hop abs and i'm able to get through the exercises without stopping so that's good. I still need to find a variety of food I tend to eat the same things although they're healthy it would be nice to find something else.

CISTRON - It's quite common to go up a pound; could be water weight. Stay positive and be sure to exercise as well.

Today was weigh in day and sad to say I was up 1 pound. I will be more careful this week, although according to the plan with the exception of 1 day I was within target each day. I think it is just a transition week, so I plan to really be careful this next week in my choices and focus on changing up my exercise a bit to perhaps give my body a change.

I will succeed!

Live with courage, compassion and joy!

I am doing better with my blood sugars. but I am having trouble with my fasting blood sugars. I know what it is to want to have a high calorie snack. but I have gotten around it by making pies with sugar free jello, sugar free cool whip, fat free cream cheese. I have less calories but a lot of satisfaction. I pushed myself yesterday until I crashed. I tried to do a lot and succeeded but then I hit a wall. I was really proud of myself though. I am working really hard at being positive. emoticon emoticon emoticon

CISTRON - emoticon and together emoticon . emoticon and you'll get there.

When you feel yourself being tempted as yourself "Do I really want that pie or do I want to get healthy?" "Am I really hungry or just being tempted?" Try drinking a big glass of water instead and weight a few minutes. "Is your stomach growling?" Try going for a nice walk or even a run if you're able. Chances are you aren't hungry and the water and walk/run will help you over that hurdle. IF you find that you are still wanting that piece of pie then have just a small piece of pie and then put the pie out of sited. Nothing is off limits on this journey - just portion control.

REMEMBER: YOU ARE WORTH IT !!!

Embarrassed with myself today... I thought I had it handled today but even after trying to compromise my cravings with healthy options I still gave in and ate 2 pieces of dutch apple pie. I am more embarrassed because now I feel satisfied instead of remorseful and a little worried that I might have trouble tomorrow.... If you can send me encouraging words tomorrow so I get back on track....

Day 1--good start to Week 3. within calorie budget; 30 min cardio; 20 min strength
Day 2--continued to focus. stayed within calorie budget. 30 min, interval, 10 min. strength, 20 min walking. mindful of food choices this holiday
Day 3--still under calorie limit--barely!--but doing o.k.
Day 4--under calorie limit; need to watch content to keep bs low. not much exercise today.
Day 5--weight down some--so need to hold focus and keep it down. back to 30 walk, 30 interval, 20 strength today. under calorie limit, but need to be more thoughtful about choices. (Chips. Really?)
Day 6--feeling good about my intentional exercise. doing o.k. but need to be thoughtful about snacks--don't eat just whatever is there; look for something wise.
Day 7--BS is sometimes down/sometimes up--not as "up" as used to be. Did my usual 30 interval, 30 walking, and the 20 min strength workout for week 3

This is week 3. This morning the scale showed up .8 but I know that is water weight so not worrying about it. I have been pretty good all week. Hit the gym a couple of times, doing my walking and dancing (my own private party lol). Been eating pretty good too. Making much better choices. I slip up sometimes but hey no one's perfect and its ok to eat what you want sometimes, just in moderation! I am going to keep it going.

Week 3, Day 3

FBS: 84

All is well.. missed checking in yesterday but I've had three good days. I've been keeping up with my nutrition tracker and staying within my ranges everyday without any problems. I walked 1 mile on my treadmill this morning then did the exercise video before taking my kids to see the musical, Oklahoma at the local college. Tomorrow is my birthday but my family says they've made everything possible for me to stay on track with food and exercise. So glad I have a family that actually cares about whether or not I take care of myself!!

Wishing everyone here a blessed weekend!!

Week 3, Day 1

FBS: 98

I've had a busy day but I walked 1.5 miles outside this morning because the weather out here in NW Houston has been unusually cool in the mornings. Gave me the zing I needed to do the workout video right after too! I'm still using my nutrition tracker faithfully and staying within my ranges. My blood sugar numbers are staying within 84-110, fasting and post-meals so I know getting back into the swing of exercising is helping me. I am still choosing to read a motivating article or blog here every single day because, even though I see the benefits with my own eyes, I despise exercising in any form, lol!! No matter how much I've changed up my routine, I have no real desire to exercise. My biggest downfall was having those few weeks that I didn't bother with it and I'm just having the hardest time keeping myself motivated to do it consistently. Choosing to come back here and do this challenge again has been a big help and I am truly liking that it gives me that little push I need daily to make sure I keep this body moving!!

Dance even when you don't feel like it!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Starting week 3. I don't have the BS fluctuations on a daily basis I used to have. Always had to watch the early mornings especially. If I went to an early morning mass, I had to be careful about fainting. In boot camp, I didn't realize at first that our meals would be so structured (haha, the recruiter showing pictures of a college-campus setting fooled me). So in boot camp, I had a couple of morning fainting spells until I smuggled some food for early morning food.

My family knew these early morning episodes were related to diabetes ("Sugar", they called it).

I could control them a bit, but they finally went away with a low carb diet.

Life needs balance

FBS this morning was 146, coming down! :) Low yesterday was before lunch and was 103 I was so excited. Ate spaghetti using the Dreamfields pasta and 2 hours later BS was 126. Didn't get much sleep last night so I'm a bit cranky today; hopefully will perk up once I get to work, assuming the roads aren't flooded from all this rain.

I went to the restaurant which turned out to be Creole and not French. There weren't the heavy sauces. I had frog legs and pea vines. I have never had either before. They were seasoned nicely and I had no desert.

Starting week 3. FBS this morning was 160, although I did have a WW snack size fudge bar last night a little later than I should have as well as a 1/2 cup potato salad with dinner. The exercise has been a bit hard for me with my hurt ankle but I keep pushing on.

I lost 7.5 pounds at my weigh in this week. I am learning how to eat out and still follow my plan. That is good because my husband loves to go out.

did the seated cardio, seated arm and shoulder work out and the seated core work out, they were more intense than I thought they would be. Have not lost any weight this week but I am continuing to track my nutrition and fitness daily. My nutrition level has been lower than the recommended amount but I don't feel hungry, could this be why I have not lost any weight?

I am feeling better, just a little weak. I am not sure what was going on, but I did much better today. I will see the doctor in a week, so I hope to better stabilize my blood sugars before then.

17Angel64 - you are right about the long weekend. We do not have young children, so there is no candy expectation, but what do you do with request for ham & scallop potatoes? Luckly my husband's cousin is coming and he doesn't eat meat, so I don't have to put ham in the potatoes and I will prepare a fish alternative. And I already have downloaded a SP recipe for lemon pound cake. And my coach visualization today was to imagine dinner with friends and you control the experience. I look forward to meeting the challenge. emoticon

Today is not going very well. I do not often feel sick, but something didn't settle well. Could be my attempt to include milk in breakfast and then tried cheese at lunch. My sugar readings went up, farther up and then down and now up.

Week 3 Day 3: A little behind due to multiple doctor's appointments today, but I am trying to catch up with logging in my calories. I tried sushi at lunch today, so that is something new. I took the stairs instead of the elevator, so I was able to get some type of movement in there and walked around a store for 30 minutes.

This week, I'll be spending less time in the gym, BUT , still getting a workout due to moving our belongings from our current apartment to the one adjacent to us. I started 2 days ago, & I'll tell ya, my muscles were calling me every name in the book...LOL! Today starts another moving day! Other than that, I'll be snacking on healthy foods like my red seedless grapes, protei n bars, & Nature Valley Granola bars not to mention keeping track of my sugars today since I'll be doing a lot of very physical activity! Can't wait till this move is over so that I can go to the gym & hit that jacuzzi! LOL! emoticon

Week 3 Day 1: Hello! I already have healthy snacks and track my food on a regular basis, but I have only recently added exercise or some type of activity to my plan due to health limitations. So I hope that I will be able to meet this week's requirements.

I plan on doing seated work outs to start me out and see how that work. I think I will be able to do the 15 minutes of activity since I usually do more than the 10 minutes when I have been able to get a work out in emoticon
