Walking and bowling today but at slow speed as I'm short breathed. Have very low energy.

I also had very low energy yesterday. Got up feeling great but it came to get into action I could barely lift my feet!

So I did some sewing.

Was up a lot through the night to use washroom. This morning I'm down to 221 so a 2 lbs loss. I wonder if I'll be up again after I drink my water today.... A lot of water retention!

Plan my meal for today. Lunch will be our main meal of the day.

Today I read about food and their preservative. Somehow it made sense to me.
It can be the cause of A) heartburn or indigestion, B) many trips to the bathroom or most often C) constipation.
Preservatives do what it says - preserve. Therefore harder to digest our food because they are conditioned to be preserved. This is why it's very important to chew our food very well before swallowing so our stomach can process it without hardship if at all if we don't chew enough
Just thought I'd share this bit of information with you all. I find it very intersting

Weigh-in today to see what to expect Sunday. Well I'm up .5 pounds from last Sunday. I had a loss until yesterday The next 2 days I'll be extra careful and plan balanced meals with fruits and veggies and fish today for sure. So by Sunday hopefully I'll be the same. Drinking water too. Filled my 4 cup goblet.


This morning unpacked, cleaned living room and dining room and now will do some quilting on my lap quilt. It raining hard out so will exercise in

This morning my DH made breakfast while I got our stuff ready for a trip to Bathurst to celebrate DGD graduation. Well needless to say when I tracked my meals the calories were over the range 1200-1500. So no snack or nothing else for me today. And tomorrow is a new day and of course a new beginning. I don't do this often but it's ok to fall of as long as it's not every day Right?

Went to see the doctor today. My cholestoral is at 3.55 which is to high for my heart They want it at 2 and under. My thyroid gland med were to strong. My kidneys are drying out - vicious circle; taking pills to eliminate water and swelling because of heart again and kidneys are drying so ask which is worse? didn't get any real answer except to consume more water. Will take bllod test again on July 31rst Venting Sorry

Happy Father's Day to the Dad's in your life!

This morning was weigh=in for the week for me and I'm down to 223 so I'm happy about that. The inches lost were a total surprise to me so DH was right when he was saying my tummy went down and clothes look a better fit.

I did set my SMART goals again for the week and figure I'll reach my goal weight by August 31, 2020. - long term. Working on reaching 180 by December 31,2019.
Had a set back this month in lbs but great in inches... But the scale is moving again. Concentration on more water (neglected this the past week) and on nutritional report to get all nutrients needed.

Kay Debbie; I know, the sae happened to me! Still working to lose the 3 lbs I gained too. It takes longer to lose than to gain! GRRR.

Slept well second night in a row. did a lot of ironing and went bowling. watch my calorie intake, too

Read on Spark that a 100 calories of fries is harder to lose than a 100 calories of veggies; not same effect on system. So now mostly watching what I eat and drink but some days I may et some food I know I shouldn't.....

I was a bad girl this weekend. Didn't exercise and didn't resist all the good deserts at a grad party I went to. I had such a good week last week and Friday I spent the whole day (early morning till evening), cleaning, washing walls and painting. I sweated so much I thought I could let go for a day. Wrong! Stepped on the scale this morning and up 3 pounds. Back on track today.

Oh yes! I slept well last night! I took Tylenol for the pain and it was worth it. This morning I feel well and rested and already proud of my day - did some chores already emoticon

Bowling this afternoon - looking forward to it.

The scale told me carrot cake is not worth it. Disappointed with myself in a sense but then it was good and there is no more. Starting a new week with my new food guide. Should be interesting. I also changed my "other goals" Having a lot of problem sleeping - only 3 hours last night and being generous!

Went to several yard sales this morning with my sister and found a few treasures; a lovely covered lined peck with cover for my yarn at 3$ and two Danielle Steele books 50cents each are just a few of my findings

I should learn to log my meals before eating! I had a piece of Costco carrot cake that took nearly half of my calorie intake today! Shish! Good thing I was careful every where else. I'm 39 calories from being over No miracle weigh-in expected tomorrow morning... just maintenance if that!

Like I said this week sees an increase in weight for me. I'm up to 223.8. I know I did some exercise but had to much sitting time to burn all the calories of the week. I'm getting a little better but still use my walker to take my walk, weather permitting... rain again today.

I'll change my ticker Sunday like usual....

Went to a dietician class this morning. The new Canada Food guide - Eat Well. Live Well. Loved it. Learned so much and tasted a new recipe - Cuban style rice and black beans - prepared in little time and delicious! Haas all kinds of needed nutrients in it. Motivated more than ever to eat better, at home, at the table. Tape guide to fridge.

Beautiful blue sky and sunny day! We're going to Centennial Park this afternoon and will take a walk around the pond. There are benches to sit and picnic tables too so will have lunch .

Today would be my grand-son's 31rst birthday. Miss him so much! I wish my DD lived closer as I know how difficult a day it is for her... Prayers for both emoticon

Before taking the shuttle, I got a call from the hospital to go for a test for my legs before meeting the specialist. Shish that was sore!!! I had tears rolling down and moaning too. Told the they were nice ladies but hope I never had to take that test again, The results is my arteries are looking good but not the veins so I'll get a prescription from the specialist when I get my appointment, so they said. They also said I'll have a bad leg day tomorrow- more pain!

I had purchased 2 smaller diner plates a few weeks ago. Today I purchased one-cup nappies for dessert and smaller bowls than what we now eat soup and cereal in. Downsizing our portion feels like we're not eating with large bowls and smaller portion. Love my new dishes.

DGD called and I called DGS today - just nice checking in and hear about there news.

Today is a bright sunny day. I'll walk to the clinic. I have very low energy lately. I'm really dragging my feet???? Maybe a walk will stimulate me. I do exercise every day but inside as we had poor weather,,,,

I had turkey for lunch and pork steak for dinner, It's to much calories for me to lose any despite the exercise which was only 26 minutes yesterday. I must do my 30 minutes today.

will see how the day goes...I'm not depressed about anything but just have no go/energy???

I read about BMI and a healthy number is between 18.5 and 25.so I have work to do but I'll achieve this.

My computer is a great tool. Ask anything you want and it has the answer. It's for me to design my own program with the tools I have. Whatever works, right?

My first step was to write down why I had to lose weight, what my healthy weight should be and what I was ready to do to achieve my goal.

My BMR is 1605.55. my BMI is 37.44, Obesity class 2 body fat percentage of 27.94%

BMI is between 35-39.99 (Obese Class 2)
If you have a BMI of 35-39.99 your risk of weight-related health problems and even death, is severe. See your doctor and reduce your weight to a lower BMI.

This is enough to ensure that I keep losing weight. Eating healthy and exercise is a must for me!

Well here it's a beautiful sunny day too. DH and I went for a long walk on Main Street and stopped at Tim Horton's for a coffee break - one coffee/ 2 cups. I needed to stop for my knee pain but in minutes I could do more, We stopped at the market talking to a friend from our building and then made it home. I think I'll sit on our veranda and quilt on a lap quilt I'm nearly done.
Tomorrow is my official weigh-in on Sunday's I believe it will be lower than Friday.... We'll see

Well I just got back from my 6 month evaluation and I have overall improved but for my weight. I'm not worried as I'm faithful in my calorie intake. She's sending me to a dietician so I can learn stuff like what to eat to be in my range in fiber, potassium, folate, calcium vitamin D ext. That should be interesting. I also put in my 200 minutes a week in exercise cardio and strength combine.

weigh-in 227.0 An increase but that's ok. Next week I hope to see better results.

Tonight my sister and I are going to play Bingo. Haven't done that in over a year for sure so we are both looking forward to a fun evening

Yesterday I drank 7 glasses of water WooHoo! Ate within calorie range, went bowling and did some stationary biking

This morning I went shopping; got us each 2 pairs of shorts for him and knee knockers for me. So excited about losing the weight; this is our way to reward ourselves instead of restaurants like before.

So much to be grateful for that it's hard to contain all the excitement emoticon

the road is paved with good intentions... but I took the wrong path. Since Saturday, I'm having trouble to keep eating healthy.
Today I'm on board again. I put on so fast! and so slow coming back off....Don't think it was worthwhile but it was good especially last night

Yesterday, I ate my larger meal at dinner instead of at lunch and the scale reflected an increase in weight. I was under my calorie goal and drank 48 onces of water. So today, I'll eat my larger meal at lunch again and watch my calorie intake at dinner. we'll see how that works out....

Had a great date night with DH last night. The only thing is that we came home and had a snack, something I normally don't do...

This week I plan to: 1; keep drinking my 40 ounces of water. 2; eat healthy, 3; exercise at least 10 minutes a day, 4; finish my 28 day program.

One day at a time, getting it done and creating new habits

Yesterday, I didn't do exercise per say bur worked around the house in the morning - even took the swing set out - and went shopping in the afternoon.

I did lose again so I'm staying active and eating healthy. Happy with my results as I have reached my goal for the week as it is this morning!

Happy Mama today! I lost .5 pounds this week so I will achieve my goal this week!

Baby stepping away, started off for me as a way to keep moving forward without setting to big a goal and then give up ship. So I began by setting 3 goals that I knew were doable.

I had my own scribbler in which I made a graphic with my goals on the side and the 7 week days on top. Every night I would check mark the ones that I had accomplish and see why I hadn't for those with no check marks. I mean this scribbler was for my eyes only and I wouldn't cheat myself, really! Some days the answer was I had been lazy, plain and simple!

So I started to read daily the Spark Stories of people before me, who achieved their goals. It gave me hope! I can do this too!

WooHoo! Birthday and Mother's Day have now gone by in the last 3 days and I didn't gain an ounce! Now I can get back in my regular meal planning and exercises. I'm so proud of myself for not gaining!

Today I'll be more active around the house and less on computer or watching tv.

I'm excited about my week! It will lead to a good month Yeah!!!

Really happy you are back on track!
Maybe you could read The Spark People 28-day program in the Learn heading.

This week I am committed to exercise 180 minutes and to eat healthy, tracking what I eat and read the nutritional report daily.

I'm starting with replacing tea with water and by eating a healthy breakfast.

I Weighed-in today and was down to 227.5. It's my B'Day today and I had lunch at the resto and dinner as well later. It's raining so won't be walking outside. I will watch what I eat for sure as I don't want to sabotage my efforts of the week!!!

I weigh-in daily and it keeps me accountable. I record my weigh-in on traker on Sundays. Even if it was the same this morning, I'm happy with my lost this week.

I'm doing this: eating healthy and developing healthy habits along the way. I will regain my health.

I am really surprised as how good healthy food can taste! I mixed some tomatoes and cucumbers with picante red pepper sauce and it's really good! I even added some to my tomato, cabbage and beef soup - very tasty as well

Yesterday I ask DH instead of going out to supper for my upcoming birthday, to buy me a comfortable pair of walking shoes for the summer. He was on a mission! We did several stores and got me the best walking shoes for me!

Today I logged in all my food for the day and I'm good to go. The scale is moving downwards which is great.

Hope you are all doing well and hope someone else will join me in our journey!

On April 14th, I decided to tackle the bull by the horn once and for all. I've been obese since 1989. I reached 248 lbs last year and panicked so I lost a few pounds here and there but in April 2019 I was still 234 lbs.

So I decided to use the food tracker, to read the nutritional report daily, do 18o minutes of exercise a week. Also as for losing weight, I wanted to keep it realistic; took me a long time to put it on so not going to come off overnight, right?

My weigh-in day is Sunday.
My plan is to; drink 40 ounces of water - didn't drink more that a gulp before)
not to be over my calorie range
do some form of exercise 5 times a week
lose a pound and a half this week.
plan meals for the day early morning or the night before

I hope some of you will join me on this journey as I sure need all the help I can get! Welcome to you all and please share with me how you are achieving your goals
