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

Welcome to the team. Sorry have never tried golf, but I have uncles who are crazy about the sport, two of them even live on golf courses, never did understand the attraction to the game, but good luck on learning. It is always fun to try new things, seems like I am trying more and more the thinner I get. Life is good. Lots to learn here so enjoy and be sure to ask questions if you need help.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Thelma;

Welcome to the team and to Spark People. This is a great site. The tools and resources on this site are so helpful and easy to use.

The team is here to offer support and encouragement on this journey to fitness.

I have only tried golf once. I have, in the past, done well at minature golf but I know that is not the same. I was frustrated with the minature golf that I have not been willing to try the real thing.

Hi just retired and find I now have time to myself so thought Id try and lose a bit of weight and get a bit fitter, have already made a start by taking up golf, it might look easy but if youve got to sixty without swinging a club its a definite challenge! anyone else trying a new hobby or even like me daft enough to try golf?
