The Simple Diet Journal # 11 -- Down -- in the good way!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Well, the scale has decided to make a move down this week -- yeah! And, I'm happy to say that I lost 3 pounds, which brings me to a total of 19 pounds as I finish up 50 days.

I certainly have been learning how my body likes to work with this diet. I just am so glad to have had our Spark Team to inspire me when I went for 2 weeks without losing anything before seeing a 6 lb drop. That experience helped so much, and inspired me to stay on plan last week following my Hello Zero weigh-in.

I am also down a pant size, which feels great!

I have such wonderful energy and general sense of well-being these days. I think the combo of the diet, with its balance of nutrients, and exercise has definitely been life-giving and restorative.

For exercise, I've continued to walk A LOT, ride my exercise bike, and I've been really enjoying working out with a Kettleball DVD.

I've also been learning how to hula hoop better, and I'm definitely going to try to make my own hoop. The one I have is a great size, but it's very heavy as the person who made it put a lot of water inside. I'm hoping to make one that's lighter so I can mix it up and maybe start learning some of the variations. May just have to make some for the kids, too.

Well, as for the Simple Diet -- I am still amazed at how excited and happy I am to be on this diet. I can't explain it, but it's just that way. I feel so determined and eager to stick with the program and not try to create my own alternative variations. I'm somehow incredibly curious to see what will happen if I follow the plan as created. So that's my continued vision -- to stay on course and keep heading down this healthy path.

Smiles at the end of what was a truly beautiful spring day out here . . .

Peace, Health, and Living Fully No Matter What . . .

    That is great. Continue to work the plan and I am sure the scale will continue to drop. I believe the support we give each other is what enables us to want to continue on the journey for as without it one would give up fast when the scale did not move downward. Just remember I am here for you.

    Your continued dedication is inspiring (as specially as I had one of those small weight loss weeks)!

    Great Job!! It's hard to keep going when the scale refuses to budge but way to power through.!

    My recumbent bike and I have become best friends. It use to be a cloths rack :)
