Do You!!

Find out what you like to do and what works for you. We are all so different that its important to remember that just because something that works for your friend isn't always going to work for you. So do you do what works for YOU!

Fear Does Not Make My Decisions for Me

This has been a focusing phrase for me for several months now. I used to let fear make my decisions, and now when I feel fear about something new, I choose to take on that new challenge! It's really changed my life.

A full serving of protein (15g) every 2-3 hours to insure fat loss not muscle.

I try to eat a full serving of protein (15g) every 2-3 hours to insure fat loss not muscle. It also keeps you full all day long and its best to set a schedule so your body knows when to expect it. There should be an equal carb/protein ratio when ever possible protein should be higher. Also, I know spark people said 8 ounces of water but I heard you are suppose to drink half your body weight of water in ounces a day to support weight loss.

Twist

I do the twist at night while watching television, just for 10 minutes, and I am already experiencing improvement in my stamina.

Start with fruit

Often when I am over-hungry I feel like I want to attack my food. Consider starting the meal with a piece of fruit -an orange, apple, or a bowl of melon. By the time I finish, I feel a little full from the fiber and can slow down and enjoy my main meal. So my advice - nosh on some fruit when you want to demolish your plateful of food!

my Story

I have went from 398lbs to 263.2 lbs since 2006.
That sounds like a long time, but the weight didn't go on over night and it doesn't *safely* go off over night either.
I have used sparks nutritional and fitness trackers, and getting involved in a sparks team, having support of others is a great help. I watch what I eat, I cook all natural and whole foods, I do not use pre packaged foods.
Fruits, vegetables, fish, lean meats, beans, nuts..
Eat to live, DON'T live to eat! emoticon

Baby Carrots!

Organic baby carrots have become a mainstay for me, especially if I have a long car trip. I used to drive 3 hours or more, 3-4 times a week, and I needed something crunchy to keep me from eating high calorie snacks. Carrots are great for your eyesight, too.

Limit Snacking

Brushing my teeth after dinner (supper) helps stop me from late night snacking.
