Struggling

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I am so struggling right now. I have been eating so much over the past two weeks it's ridiculous. I know I should stop. I am not sure if I have gained weight because I haven't weighed in. I will be weighing in on Thursday. The only thing I can think of is that my dr. lowered my thyroid medicine. I feel awful. But she won't give me the same amount as when I was feeling great. She said that my levels are too high. Sigh........

    Are you actually hungry when you're eating or just eating because food is there?

If you're actually feeling hunger symptoms, that could be a symptom of something - whether it's a nutrient deficiency that you're not filling or some trouble with your body's ability to properly digest some foods. Ask your doctor about that.

If it's more that you're just eating because food is there, you might want to try some sort of diary or journal - not of what you eat, but what you were doing, thinking, feeling in the time before you went and got food. That might help you start to identify triggers, what gets you started. Trying to remove the triggers might help you take back control of your eating.

First 50 lbs

Friday, March 23, 2012

I have lost my first 50 lbs. I am so happy! I only have 150 more to go! LOL I guess I'm not eating way too many carbs because my sugars are within the normal range although a little on the high end of normal.

    Hey, that first fifty is like a tall drink of water to a person in a dessert. It's proof you CAN do it and gives you the resolve to keep moving!

Congratulations!

Too Many Carbs

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

I have been not worrying to much about the carbs when I discovered that I was getting about 60 grams of fiber. I eat a lot of beans, fruits, nuts, vegetables. I hardly eat any grains except oatmeal.
I was on a "diet" a long time ago that allowed us to subtract fiber from carbohydrates. This time I am not on a "diet" I am changing my eating patterns, I am allowing myself to have whatever I want I just track it all. Nothing is "off limits". Strangely enough, I really don't want all the so called junk food I use to eat. I am on the vegan challenge this month though and I am enjoying. I keep telling myself that I can have whatever I want, just not all at once. LOL Nothing is going to leave the planet. If I have eaten everything I can eat for one day, then another day will come. Usually the "craving" passes and I don't want whatever it was.

The other day I was taking a bath and looked down and to my surprise I saw something that I hadn't seen in a long time. MY KNEES! I was pretty excited.

Losing Weight!

I just had my first weigh in as a vegan. I lost 3.4 pounds while eating the same amount of calories. Yeah!

    Being vegan is a great beginning to getting healthy. Add green juices, green smoothies, and make certain your diet is filled with raw and your body weight will melt off and you won't have to concern yourself with calories.

I also hope you are switched or switching to organic. You don't want a heaping serving of biotoxins with your food. Stay away from all processed phakephood and it will be better for you too.
