Taking It Seriously (And This Time I Mean It)

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

I have been hot and cold with keeping my Spark information up to date. Why? I think I figured if I didn't fully commit than it would be easier for me to cheat the system. But I am tired of half-assing this. I exercise for a few days then stop and when I start back up I go back to the beginning. I keep making excuses for everything and I just can't do it anymore. So I am finally making my page and starting this for real. Tracking everything I eat and do. Making myself accountable for my health and well being. Spark doesn't need me, but I need Spark if I am going to get healthy. So let's do this.

    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
