Getting Back to Reducing Carbs

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Sometimes I just want to kick myself for getting away from the carb control way of eating. When I am eating the low carb way, I am less sluggish and feel better physically. Five days into this and I am down 6 lbs. I know some of it is water weight but, I feel better. I guess because I have done this before, the induction phase is easier. I have also been walking a half hour daily & hope to increase that soon. It feels nice having the energy to walk that half hour.

Til Next time...

Hanging in there this time

Sunday, September 29, 2013

In August I restarted my journey to better health and it seems to be sticking. I am down almost 20 lbs and feeling great! I was even able to do well on our vacation to Wyoming earlier this month. I tried to make healthy food choices and got a bit of walking in on our visit to The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone!

Closing in on the 40 lb loss mark!

Friday, May 03, 2013

Just 2 lbs to go! When I first started over I weighed in a 253, that was just 2 lbs below my all-time highest weight. I am now down to 215!

What a difference limiting the "junk", eating healthier, drinking my water and getting in my workouts everyday makes! I feel so much better and hardly ever have that "sluggish" feeling! I might just reach that goal I set for the end of June! All my pants are starting to get so loose!

Til Next Time!

Target date set for my return to ONEderland

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I have set June 25th for my target for my return to onederland. That gives me 2 months to lose 18 lbs. Can I do it? I believe that I can.

If I lose 2 lbs./week I will meet that goal. I have become more aggressive with my workouts and am tracking my calorie intake, watching my sodium/ sugar/carb intake closer. Drinking lots of water too and being more consistent taking a multi-vitamin!

Stay Tuned!!

Good luck with your goal! It certainly sounds like a reasonable one, and you have the plans in place to make it. I hope to be joining you in ONEderland not too long after you get there.

Working outside is much more comfortable!

Monday, March 18, 2013

This weekend I worked outside with my husband and I didn't get the achy ankles, knees and feet that I usually do! One thing I noticed is that when I walked across the garden, I didn't feel the strain in my "bad" leg that I have in past year. I call that progress!!
