So sorry that I didn't get this out last night. We had a major storm which knocked out our power so that meant no computer.
The winner in the drawing for the SparkPeople tshirt is: MAJORMOM 7
She did an excellent job all week long of tracking her food and staying within her calorie range.
A couple of things that I jotted down when going thru the food trackers:
- Some folks go days without a veggie or fruit in sight!!
- There is alot of Fast food going on here.
- Folks staying within calorie range but with bad food choices.
- Not eating all day but then having fat laden fast food choices at the end of the day.
- Eating the same thing day after day after day...getting in a rut!
Just some things to be aware of and hopefully will help you "re-evaluate" your food choices. I truly think it's all about planning and being prepared. I have a friend who lives real close to "fast food" alley. She has her choice of everything imagineable. Therefore, she got into the habit of feeding her family at least two meals a day from one of the fast food chains. She would even make 2-3 stops to get what everyone wanted. As a result, her and hubby have a weight and some minor health issues (high BP, etc.) and two of their children are beginning to show weight problems as well. In March she realized what was happening and took control. She is now planning out their meals and she said the kids love helping her cook and having meals all together at night instead of cruising the town for their dinner...LOL. They also have lost weight and the kids are back to a healthy weight range and her and hubby are closing in on their goal too.
Congratulations to MajorMom7 again and to everyone else who participated.
There's an old saying about "doing something the same way over and over again and expecting different results". I guess weight loss and getting healthy is the same way. We can't "wish" it to happen....it would be great if it was that easy.
"Focus on results and you won't change, Focus on change and you WILL see results!"
"I'm worth it........!"
