You're welcome. I got my copy online from Amazon, but I bought a copy several months later for my mom at Walmart, so you should be able to find it around and for a reasonable price.

Walk It Out is a game for the Nintendo Wii where you walk around an island, called Rhythm Island. You walk in place, and as you walk correctly to the beat of songs, you earn points that you then use to unlock items around the island. It is an amazingly good workout, and I enjoy it when the weather is yucky or I can't get to the gym. I have started using handweights and a stepper as I walk to intensify the workout.

You are right! My husband just informed me that we have about a weeks worth of food to clear out our pantry and freezer. I thought it was pretty cleaned out until we reorganized and straighten it up lol! We can't waste because money is tight. We are going to replace with healthier food choices. I am going to focus on walking 15 minutes each morning on the treadmill and we are going to Central Park to walk in the evenings. I believe this would be a good goal set for this week. May I ask you what is Island in the game Walk It Out? Thanks for the encouragement!

You can do it! Just remember that every little change will add up. You don't have to be nutrition and fitness superstar overnight; just keep trucking on and you will succeed!

Thanks LYSINGR for the information. I am going to start tracking Monday what I eat and faithfully walking. I will look into the Couch to 5K. I would love to compete in a 5K event in April. Of course I want to be able to finish it but I want to finish it strong. I am a competitor in the worst way and love a challenge. My husband loves to run in them and he feels like that would give me the pep that I need. I appreciate you responding to my message diet methods. Pray because I weigh in Monday and I actually feel pretty good about it. LOL!

Yes, it will still be important to count calories, as well as to watch sugars and simple carbs. Even with the smaller portions and better maintenance of blood sugar levels, your body still has a maximum number of calories that it can use. In other words, the basic equation that you must burn more calories than you intake to lose weight is in effect.

As you adapt, you will find that you have a better idea of what you are eating and may not have to track every single meal every day, but generally you will still need to at least track once in a while to keep yourself alert to your real calorie and nutrient intakes.

If you are interested in completing a 5K, you might check into the Couch to 5K (C25K) program. Here is one program plan: www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_3/181

. There are many variations, but the basic idea is that you start slowly (even just walking), use intervals (walking, jogging, running) as your body gets stronger, and build up to being able to run a 5K. There is also not a stringent timeline to complete the program--you can repeat weeks until you feel strong enough to move on. There are several C25K teams on SparkPeople that help you along the way as well. Best wishes!

Thanks for the response LYSINGR AND IMJOESWFEY. I know that I will have to eat this way for the rest of my life. I believe I can live the duration of my life doing this diet method. I wonder if you count calories each meal you take in. I believe I would have to be around 1500 calories if counting is essential in calorie intake. I am currently desposing my refrigerator, freezer and pantry of the old life style and preparing myself for the more healthier us. This should be completed by the end of the weekend LOL! My husband is wanting to eat more healthier too. He does not have any weight to lose and he runs in 5K races which he is wanting me to do with him. I need to get in better shape than I am now to do a 5K race. I believe this lifestyle will bring us closer together and help us to be more supportive of one anothers needs. Wish me luck LOL!
Your blog IMJOESWFEY is very helpful and will be a frequent visitor. It is good to know that I don't have to go at this journey alone. So I want to be supportive and a help to anyone I can as well.

The idea of eating several smaller meals a day is a good one. Since women with PCOS are often battling insulin resistance as well, it is often recommended that we follow a lifestyle regimen that a diabetic would follow, which usually involves eating several small meals a day which can maintain a healthier blood sugar level. Best wishes!

I am going to start a diet method to get my sugar undercontrol. I have heard eating every 2 hours is a good way to do that. of course it's a low cal breakfast, 150 calorie snack, low cal lunch, 150 calorie snack, low cal dinner and 150 Calorie snack before bed. I don't know if this is a good diet plan so I am needing imput to help me get my sugar down and stable. Please help me! emoticon
