Hard to Blog today since I have lost but so little it is sort of discouraging since I can't imagine eating less or exercising more because it hurts too much but I will try to look at being consistent and healthy and it is going in the right

This week I am going to continue my focusing on what I have not what I don't have and doing what I can and not being upset about what I can't do.

Adding something new is to reduce the amount of SUGAR, STARCH, SALT ,SATURATED FAT,
CAFFEINE in my diet.

Dr. Reddy on his site (Reddy Bread) gave some interesting video's that motivated me to give the doctors much less business in the future.

Hope all of you are truly enjoying this beautiful spring weather. As for me AAAAchoooo!

    This is my first year for allergies at age 48! When I take my daily walks my nose gets all stuffed up. Robert has a great idea of just making one nutrition change at a time. You can not expect to be 'perfect' in one day. It takes time and patience as you accomplish each change. CONGRATS on the weight loss!

    Hi Yvonne, I'm so glad you're focusing on what you Can Do now. . .adding more to your game plan will come later but for now make small changes that you can stick with for life. I've been so sick recently that I'm just free floating but don't have much appetite nor am I moving much at all. I can't wait to feel good enough again to really focus on what I know works well for me. My sons have had awful allergy problems and I think they're bothering me also as my eyes are so red and watery recently. When I received the wonderful Goodie from you yesterday I couldn't stop smiling and you're sweet words touched me and made me very happy. Make yourself your top priority now.

    Love You,

    Jill emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I had to 'step away from the scale'! It is so horrible. Now I go by the way my pants fit. No muffin top!! YAY! emoticon

    yep I find it hard staying motivated too if all I look at is what the scale says. I find it helps me much more to focus on the other reasons I'm doing this. Of course I have a long term goal of losing XX number of pounds, and I know that 1-2lbs a week is realistic for me BUT I want to lose it all in one week and its hard to be patient. In the meantime I have other reasons and some short term goals that take over when the scale isn't moving fast enough. I am doing this to get out of my wheelchair as permanently as possible. I am doing the exercising for that and for getting rid of the lack of mobility and the pain that comes from not exercising joints and building muscle strength. I am eating healthier because I want to control my diabetic sugar levels and drop my sodium and cholesterol levels to have a healthier heart. Short Short term I want to be able to go to the Art Institute and be able to get out of the wheelchair sometimes to see the paintings better and so my DH doesn't have to push me the whole time we are there. Very Short term goal: I am exercising and eating healthy because I have surgery coming up and the fitter I am the faster I recover. By the time I get to remember all these things I am motivated again and I sort of forget the slow weight loss thing so it doesn't bring me down for long when it hits. That works for me, Just a suggestion of how you can change what your focus is and not let it get at you and stop you as much.

    We can do it, like someone above said, Baby Steps! And do NOT be upset with only losing 1.5 pounds last week. That is wonderful' You didn't put it all on in a week and it ain't coming off in a week either. Give yourself a hug from me, ((( ))) did you do it? OK now give yourself another from YOU!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    If it seems to hard to cut down on all those things at once, you can try to work on one thing the first week and then add another the next week. You will feel better with less of those things in your body. emoticon

    Best thing I ever read to give me hope of losing my excess weight for good was Gary Taubes' Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It. It's a real life changer!
