walk 10,000 steps a day.

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 36 pounds .

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. 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.

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 162 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 worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

Hi Neil.... emoticon to the team! You'll find most of us chatting on the "Happy Hour on the Deck" thread (or the "Choosing to do the Hard work" thread) ... This is a great team, very supportive and always ready to share our adventures (and sometimes misadventures, LOL)

Love the term "tramping" for hiking :-)

Again, welcome to the team! emoticon Choc



Just keep swimming!

Never give up!

Hi, I'm new to the team but not to Sparkpeople, I just got back on this site after a break of a year. I've always loved hiking (although here we call it tramping) and I'm lucky enough to live in one of the best countries in the world for hiking, New Zealand. I'm looking forward to hearing about everyone else's experiences and sharing my own.
