Doing the happy dance!

Saturday, October 05, 2013

It is weigh in for me today and YAY the weight is coming off again. I'm so excited and I'm doing the happy dance!

Within several days following the 7 day GM diet I had a total weightloss of 4.2kgs. Then a few days after that I started to put on weight and so my total weightloss then became 3kgs.

THEN over the next 4 days of being vigilant and sticking to my calorie intake and my recommended dietary ranges and not drinking any alcohol, I have now lost in total...... (drumroll please).....

4.4kgs !!

I'm no longer in the 91 and something kgs - I'm now in the 86 and something kgs! I love that.

Because I LOVE my fruit and veg SO MUCH I've spent several hours this morning playing with the food tracker to find a way to eat a diet mainly of fruit and veg and still meet all of my recommended dietary quotas, particularly protein. I have a little bit of work left to go on this model of mine, but I have just about done it! All of this playing around and trying this and trying that is helping me to retain the information so one day well into the future I will not need to use the tracker. It is like I am in school again, but all I am studying this time is my health.

I was up at 4am this morning in anticipation of going to the markets and now have a fridge full of fresh fruit and veg again - the prices are unbelievable and the produce is so fresh. Also a few more seedlings for the vege patch - celery and cos lettuce.

Now it's time for my green smoothies which are turning out to be a food highlight of my day!

I'm so blessed to have decided on SP as my weighloss website. The people here are so wonderful, inspirational and positive. I am excited that IAM146POUNDS has decided to join the no alcohol and no coffee challenge and BOLLIEPOS has also quit drinking coffee at around the same time.....


I hope anyone reading this has a very special day today.

    Wonderful enthusiasm!

    That's right, you are headed into Spring/Summer with all the fresh foods. We are Fall/Winter up here, so garden fresh is done for the season, mostly. Enjoy!

    So have you watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead? Thought maybe you has since you mentioned your green smoothies. emoticon

    emoticon emoticon Wow you're doing amazing. 4.4 kgs. is a great loss you can be super proud of yourself and all you're doing for your health.

    I really like what you're saying about learning about your health and the changes you're making to adapt your calorie intake to your taste. That's a super nice idea and I find it very creative.

    I hope you'll have an amazing day.
    The fresh markets are starting to close down now for us because the snow will be here before we know it, but I'm already planning my future garden for next year :-)
