And now for something completely different...

September 2013:
Here I am again, a repeat Sparker since 2006. I did lose 30 of the 50 pounds I wanted to lose since my last update, but then my weight loss stalled completely. After frustrating months of getting nowhere, along came stress in the form of work insanity and a kitchen remodel. From May to September I managed to regain 25 of the 30 pounds I lost. :(

Here I am again, a repeat Sparker since 2006. I did lose 30 of the 50 pounds I wanted to lose since my last update, but then my weight loss stalled completely. After frustrating months of getting nowhere, along came stress in the form of work insanity and a kitchen remodel. From May to September I managed to regain 25 of the 30 pounds I lost. :(

So I'm back at it, but trying a completely different tactic. Since I was finding my workouts burdensome, I am following a very low-calorie, low-carb plan that is similar to Ideal Protein. I say similar because I refuse to pay hundreds of dollars for their coaching when I have Sparkpeople and the internet to help guide and support me. So far I am very, very happy with this plan; no rigorous working, a simple and easy food plan, and I'm dropping weight at a reasonable clip. So far down 10 pounds after only two weeks!

The plan is to get to my target weight and then follow the different phases to add back in healthy carbs and more aerobic exercising. I still see lots of challenges for me with maintenance. I must find a way to make my workouts more enjoyable, and need to work on the emotional/stress triggers. But I'm also hoping to find a way to maintain that isn't as burdensome and works with my life as it is now.

We get bombarded by the 'experts' and media about low fat diets as the ways to lose weight so it is initially hard to shake off that mentality and try something different. I've been eating Ancestrally the last year and a half and am down close to 40# by focusing on cleaning up my diet. No junk! But contrary to popular opinion Ancestral diets are not always low carb high fat. So I have recently been playing with just that. I'm only a week into it but after stalling out with no weight loss for 3 weeks my scale moved last week. I feel so satiated with the extra fat I'm now eating that it's hard to believe it will work. I always associate weight loss with hunger. Hopefully i will continue to lose the weight this way.
