I've been trying something new and it's working

Sunday, February 15, 2009

Well, I've been trying something new. My daughters had a lot of success visiting a dietician recently, so...I'm following her lead and have gone on a low carb diet option. Notice I said low carb, not no carbs. It's working for me, I'm finally losing weight again (and more importantly fat) and have set 5 pound goal increments for myself. I've also started walking with my husband and dog. We get exercise and a chance to spend some time together. I'm looking forward to my next goal 145 pounds. My reward will be a serving of homemade potato chips with melted blue cheese from my favorite local restaurant. Knowing that I can have them in the future as a reward, is incentive enough to keep me from them now :-) I've also been closet shopping and am able to wear slacks that I used to wear at least two years ago. Yeah!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day. I know I did.

    So, glad the low carb diet is working out for you. (My hubby's nutritionist actually has him on the same; I'm afraid he's not been following it 100%, but he has improved over the last month.)

    One of the things I've learned, like SparkPeople recommends, it is important to track calories, carbs, fat, and protein; for some people, they need to add sugar and sodium. Though the low carbs are working out for you, keep the other items in mind when you're making food choices. Also, key is exercising, which is great that you're walking; take a look at the 10-minute workouts that were used in the New YOU Bootcamp (Healthy Lifestyles, Videos, Day 1 - 7) for some great and short additions.

    WooHoo to being on the track to losing weight again!!!!!
