It's Working

Thursday, February 23, 2012

This is working, it really is. I'm pleased with my results so far and I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing. And, as I said in an earlier post, I wanted to remember what it was that I did last year to lose the weight. Well, I remembered. Something got me thinking and I remembered. Well, it was what I'm doing now. It works every time. The only downfall is the fact of, like I said, the fingernail peeling. It's caused me to quit in the past. So, this time round I am making sure to get enough calcium, protein and vitamin C, deficiencies of which typically cause fingernail peeling. I have been doing well with the calcium and C, as I'm taking supplements. However, the protein is good some days and a bit low on others. I am going to buy more Greek yogurt. I considered lactose free fat free milk, but I am so not a believer in fat free. I am supplementing with various oils to make sure I get enough fat. I just don't know, but I think more dairy could really help. Yesterday I got a skim milk latte and it was delicious! I'll have to do a little poking around the grocery store for ideas. I guess I know what I could do, but it's a matter of buying things I'll actually eat and not just put in the fridge and eventually throw away.

    I actually had been thinking about the gelatin, and yes I can get it here. I'll have to do that. I have some in the cabinet now that I think of it. Maybe I'll try some tomorrow. Great idea!

    Have you every tried gelatine for your fingernail peeloing? Usually you can find unflavoured gelatime powder (not sure if "Knox" is available in the US or if Canada imports it from the US (lol) but is is a powder, can be mixed into other foods, or even put in water and eaten that way...... OR

    you could get some sugar free gelatin such as "Jello" brand, and have a bit of that each day. I also like to add fresh fruit to mine so it is like a dessert. Just a little bit helps. I find if I go for long periods of time without any, my nails start to "split" and "peel"

    Glad your planning is working for you. WAY TO GO
