pearls and protein

From June 2012 to May 2013 I lost 110 pounds. Yeah me! However, from then to March 2014 I stalled. Not so good. Some suggest that I settle for the success of my weight loss to date. I say no. I am still obese for my five-foot frame.

I want to be a normal healthy BMI for my height. This means more protein, more vegetables and less carbohydrates. It also means more movement. Ironically enough, my husband loves carbohydrates! So while I won't eat them I will cook them and will do so ...

I invite you to join me on my journey to lose weight on a tight budget as I live life. Enjoy.

SparkPoints: 5,732

Fitness Minutes: 572

My Goals:
In March 2014 I want to lose 10 pounds, drink 10 cups water daily, move 20 minutes daily and track food daily.


My Program:
To walk 30 minutes 5/wk.

To drink 64 oz water daily.

To keep within my targeted caloric range.

To get 60 g. protein daily.

To track all food and beverages

Personal Information:
I like to try new recipes. I have a tight food budget for 2014. Due to the surgery, I have a tight calorie budget which means I need to exercise more. I'm concerned about the environment and sustainability, but I'm not certain as to how I see myself fitting into this area at this juncture. One thing at a time...

Other Information:
As an amateur photographer and traveler, I like to make digital scrapbooks. I recently purchased a fancy blender but haven't mastered it yet. I really enjoy my crock pot and food processor. I don't like my vacuum cleaner; I guess I don't know it very well. I have a weakness for shiny things that come from mines in the Earth.

emoticon Just popping through to offer you some quotes to encourage you on your health and weightloss journey. As one of the co-leaders of Hopeful Hearts Breaking Free from Hurts Team I have added you as a friend so if you haven't already done so please add me back, along with the other co-leaders of Hopeful Hearts Team so we can keep track of each other and follow each others progress.

Hi my name is Jill and I am the co-leader of Hopeful Hearts teams challenges. We have an up coming challenge in January, that starts on the 1st and ends on the 31st of January 2014. It is called the Biggest Winners for those who want to go at it a little more faced paced and Team Jill who is for those who have physical and limited mobility issues. Health problems that require us to take things at a little more slower than others.
I'm sure that which ever team you decide to chose, you will have a blast. I am looking forward to seeing you on one of the teams and getting to know you. Welcome to Hopeful Hearts Breaking Free From Hurts.. enjoy the team and all it has to offer.
Love your sister in Christ Jesus
Jill
