Going back to a mostly low fat vegetarian/vegan diet. I say mostly because I am not going to freak out over the occasional fish, meat, or fat. I wonít make a habit of it. The low carb diet just didnít work for me. I didnít lose weight, didnít have more energy, and didnít have less joint stiffness. And I am working on the exercise.

August 1, 2013
After losing over 22 pounds from the middle of March 2011 to August 2011 by eating a low fat vegan diet (Eat To Live). While not being 100% perfect, it was fairly easily and didnít find the lack of meat and dairy as hard as I had thought it would be. However, my cholesterol numbers jumped up dramatically and my doctor was unhappy. After a year and a half, I didnít really want to go without meat and dairy for the rest of my life and it is extremely difficult to maintain socially in this part of the country. So, I started having meat, dairy, and oil more often. Over the next year I gained 6 pounds back.

Next I switched to eating a low-carb (Paleo type) diet and within two weeks my cholesterol number had dropped significantly. My doctor was happy, but the weight started back up.


December 28, 2011 - I am proud of myself for the progress I have made in the last half of 2011. I have lost 22+ pounds by mostly following the Eat To Live plan and find it fairly easy to do. Now, I need to add muscle while losing 5 more pounds.

I need to find an exercise plan that I will stick to the same way I found Eat To Live. Something I enjoy enough to do continuously. I need muscle strength to both look better and to relieve the back pain.

Mount Eagle is a beautiful little town. I used to go to church camp there growing up and my brother when to the University of the South in Suwannee.

I'm so sorry about your husband. I know you have been going through a very difficult time. I'm just glad you are getting back to sparking a bit.

I saw your Feb. blog about snow and ice and the view you have out your back window is similar to mine. Where do you live in Tennessee? I live in Crossville. I was just wondering how far apart we are.

Hugs,
Kay

Thanks for all your support Earnie. I plan to continue to Spark as often as I can, so I can stay on track. We both appreciate the prayers. It is a real shock to our lives, but we are focused on getting him ready to cope with the surgery and to pull through it okay. We will deal with what they find after. Just one step and one day at a time. Take care of yourself and thanks again for everything.
