Today I am going back to measuring and really paying attention to lower salt content as well as lowering carbs and sugar.

I find if I abstain completely from carbs and sugar I set myself up for a binge on them so I need to have them in my diet in moderation until I can give them up completely.......when I stopped weighing this past few weeks I saw my weight go up instead of down....thank you scale.

Back to the

Have a great day Spark Family. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Being a Diabetic I try to cut the Carbs all the time and I find, like you, then I binge also. Took me some time to realize this. So now I am trying to train myself to eat those Carbs in moderation. I think I am better off. I bought the Tidbit One gadget to count my steps and so far I am amazed how little walking I do. The Tidbit Zip is good also (cost less). I get more steps in when I go shopping at the store - I have stairs and been going up and down them to get the exercise I need. I am on a kick and this is the 12th day of exercise. I do the Leslie Sansone (on YouTube - free) Walk & Tone - only 8 minutes and ride my exercise bike for 5 minutes, but it is a start. Thanks for the visit...LI, NY sends you a wave...

    I am right there with you! I have started measuring everything. I even measure peanut butter and almond butter. Funny how much we can under estimate what we eat and over estimate how much we exercise!! I think you will see progress soon, if you keep up with your goals!

    I completely understand what you are saying! (I tried to ignore those scales and then I think I started fudging here and there!) ........... so either I can't be trusted OR I just need to rely on them a bit .... like a Drill Sargant!!! emoticon .... I know you can!!

    It sounds like you've figured out what works best for you and that is what it takes to stick to it for the long run. Like you, I do eat sweets and carbs much more in moderation now. I know you will do better on your new plan. Wishing you great success and happiness.

    Whatever it takes is the way we have to make the plan work for us. I, too, have to measure everything...and I mean almost every single thing. If I don't I guess I think I'm not taking things seriously. Glad you have a plan. Hope it does the trick for you! Love, Jeannie

    Yvonne, I love the thought of you in the lab, creating a new way to eat. I'm sorry, hon, but knowing you, you'd end up making another Frankenstein! lol Good Luck, Sweetie!

    You can do this. You need to be patient with yourself and hang on until the victory arrives. I find that every time I stop paying attention, things start slipping - I don't think it healthy to cut out whole categories of food or to eliminate my treats - over time, I have cut WAY back and some might just as well be eliminated totally because it has been so long since I had them.

    Thank you for the goodie. emoticon I am struggling too and the things you share in your blog help me to know I'm not alone and to be motivated not to give up. The support I get from my friends here and the support you give to me, helps me to keep getting up and pushing on. emoticon

    Yvonne, emoticon I am happy to say I have lost 4 pounds this week We really can do this. Have you ever tried having a food diary buddy that you report to everyday, or meal what you eat? It really helps keep you on track if you have the time to put into it. And we are worth that time.
