    Hi, I just saw your question about identifying food allergies. I found out about mine when I went to an allergist. They did skin prick tests. I had come up positive for soy, egg yolk, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, lettuce. I then had to do a food elimination diet. Had to eliminate it all for 2 weeks and then reintroduce each suspected food 1 at a time. If there were any symptoms then it's considered a food allergy. If there were no symptoms, then it's not an allergy but a sensitivity. I ended up with soy, broccoli, spinach as true allergies. The rest were just sensitivities. emoticon

    Hey Daisy! Thanks for the Spark love on my blog. This quest to a healthier self is rooted in persistence. I see your weight loss and I know that you have it in spades. We all have off days what's important is that we get our heads together and get back in the game. Your encouragement means a lot to me and it helps me to stay focused. My workout plan is on a tier with my ultimate goal by year's end to log 120 minutes 6 days a week. So I want to gradually build up my strength and endurance. My overall plan breaks down like this:

    January: 30 min 4 days/wk July: 90 min 5days/wk
    February: 60 min 4 days/wk August: 120 min 5 days/wk
    March: 90 min 4 days/wk Sept: 30 min 6 days/wk
    April: 120 min 4 days/ wk Oct: 60 min 6 days/wk
    May: 30 min 5 days/wk Nov: 90 min 6 days/wk
    June: 60 min 5 days/wk Dec: 120 min 6 days/wk

    In January I usually did more than 30 minutes (like an hour) so I exceeded that goal. Right now, I'm doing an hour a day 4-6 days a week (but no less than 4). In a day I'm burning anywhere from 400 - 1400 calories (that depends on how much cardio I can get in - the more the better!). But diet is the key. I can undo all these sweat sessions with one careless trip to McDonald's!

    I have/had some good friends when I started that I still stay in contact with that helped me when I first started. it is tough and hard when you first start and overwhelming. Sometimes you need direction and support which I still receive to this day. You have me to lean on whenever, I'm here to answer questions, listen, be a shoulder to cry on, etc. I found that the one thing that has helped my life tremendously, is every morning I wake up and find one thing that I like about myself. It can be your hair style, or your ankles, etc. I repeat them all day. When I have a negative thought about myself, I stop, rewind adn then rerecord it into something more positive. For example:
    If I say in my head "Gosh, I'm so fat, I'll never lose all this weight." I stop, rewind that and rerecord into " I may not be the size that I would like, but I am taking the steps to get there." And believe me, you are worth it, deserve it.
