On she goes....

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I weighed myself this morning for the first time in a couple of days. In those days I tried to moderate my eating, do some exercise and continue to drink water. I lost 2 pounds!! This is after a week or two of gaining a pound a day.

Thank you for the comments and the support over the past week or so. It has meant a lot. I will keep up what I've been doing. I also have a ten day streak of signing in to Spark each day. This is after several months of very sporadic "attendance." I had been kind of looking down on Spark after losing 25 lbs very quickly on Dr Fuhrman's diet. He has some great research and I know his diet works....however I simply could not keep up with it. It was too stringent and the recipes were complex and time consuming. However his main point was "Salad is the main course" and that I can keep doing, and I think if I do that I will continue to lose weight. It will help to minimize the animal products but I'm not going to go crazy with that...

So here is my plan:
continue to do strength exercises daily (asthma has been too bad to do cardio)
continue to eat a lot of salad
track exercise and food

Breakfast: smoothie
Lunch: Soy yogurt and fruit
Dinner: salad possibly with some chicken
Overnight:a bowl of cereal

    Sounds like a solid plan, except make sure you get enough protein so you don't lose muscle (it burns calories 24/7 and it's so hard to put back on.) So I vote for adding that chicken to that salad. We need good nutrition.

    Glad you're feeling better (I assume, with your exercising.)

    Sparkpeople's plans work well when used as directed, that is accurate tracking of everything you eat and your exercise. Anyone looking for a quick fix and a rapid weight loss will be disappointed. This is meant as a lifetime commitment. Severely restrictive diets don't cut it and most people can't stick with them.
    The sad fact is ST alone simply doesn't burn enough calories to really lose a lot of weight :(( Which means you have to be careful with the calories. Its great that you are able to do that much though! I sure can't!
    Keep the great work! You can do this!
