Hello Sara,

I do understand. When I first started, I was spinning my wheels for awhile. I was frustrated, because I was actually pretty active, but still not able to lose weight. I was making no progress and not making the right changes in my eating habits.

I don't know what your eating habits are like, but I recommend keeping a little notepad in your purse (or if you have a palm pilot or other such device) where you can write down how much you eat of which foods during the day. Then, when you get home, you can enter in what you ate to the spark nutrition page. If you want, spark will even menu plan for you. That was a bit too much for me, but I found that writing stuff down really made a difference for me.

What do you usually do for meals? I would try to plan some healthy breakfast items... yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, or whatever you like. If you cook, I highly recommend doing some preparation on the weekends. You can make a couple of healthy meals and divide them into healthy portions. Then you can put them in containers that you can keep in your fridge or freezer to take to work each day.

Also, it is pretty easy to plan in a couple of snacks - one mid-morning, and one mid-afternoon. They can be simple... an apple, or a serving of reduced fat triscuits or something. You'd be surprised at how that will help you not overeat at lunch and dinner.

I highly recommend drinking a glass of water before each meal or snack as well.

I don't know what tools you've already got, or what you've already been working on, so these are some pretty basic suggestions. If you want to tell me what you've done so far that has and hasn't worked, we can troubleshoot from there.

Cheers,
Heidi

Don't let yourself get overwhelmed! Take it one day at a time. Learning what to eat is the hardest part, I think. I started with the small things like changing to wheat bread and buying high fiber bars for snacks (9g of fiber-Kellogg's make them).
After two months, I'm just now starting to look at on-line recipes. I purchase what I need to try them and go from there. But even so, my sodium is way over, every day. No matter what I do, I can't seem to get that down. So, I'm still learning, too.
If you're worried about nutrition, did you know that you can change your nutrition goals? I track my selenium and vitamin a because they're related to reproduction. From what I've read, low levels of selium can contribute to the inability to conceive. I don't know how true all of that is but I figure it's worth a shot.
If you need help with anything, please don't hesitate to ask. I, like so many others, would be more than happy to help!
Talk to you soon!

Hello.

Thank you for adding me as a friend. I started this journey a little over a year ago and have lost 27 kilos. I've still got a few to go, but am much healthier (and my body thanks me too).

If there's anything I can do to help, let me know. I recommend starting with a few small goals that you can achieve within the next week or two - fitness goals, calorie goals, etc.

Best wishes for you on your journey to health!

Cheers,
Heidi
