I am working really hard at losing weight. I want to shed the pounds so badly!
I have made a new blog just for talking about weight loss related issues, like recipes, counting calories, emotional eating, coping while on a nutrition plan, how much I weigh, stats etc.
Please come join me over at http://irishgirllosingweight.wordpress.com/
I’d be so grateful as I could use all the encouragement I can get!
I am SO MAD at myself right now! It’s been 6 weeks since major surgery and I am still not allowed to do anything. Seriously, nothing. At least until my physician gives me the green light. And with 6 weeks of minimal movement & the food that accompanies, I’ve gained at a rate of 1 kg (about 2 lbs) per week. 6 kg’s total. I cannot fit into my dress. My beautiful dress.
I spent almost a year last year, fighting to slim down and fit nicely in my swimsuit. Which I finally did, thanks to David. (who is going to be sooooo disappointed). If I could exercise, this would go away, I know it. But what does a person do when they are unable to run, lift, stretch, squat – and the like? I don’t want to go all eating disorder diet, but that…
For those who have followed me since the beginning you know that I once posted every week about my transition to a healthier lifestyle. After a while I became bored with posting about health so I continued to live my lifestyle, but stopped posting. Now I have been inspired to post each week about my progress as I aim to reach a new goal of 165 pounds.
Last week I weighed in at the doctor’s office at 185 pounds and set a goal for yesterday’s weigh-in at 183 lbs. I am happy so say I recorded a weight of 181.6 lbs. I did a good job of watching my calories, walking Bentley a couple of times at night and did not drink my calories. Honestly I believe eliminating calorie drinks made a huge difference. Needless to say I am thrilled!
So this week I am setting my goal at 180 lbs. I understand that it is not the healthiest thing to lose a lot of weight each week so I will make sure I eat 2000 calories each day and drink plenty of water. Plenty of calories will ensure my energy level stays high and remains consistent.
How is your healthy living going? Nonexistent? Remember you only have one body so try to take care of it!
A few weeks ago I updated everyone on my current healthy living progress, which has not been the greatest. I have decided to post my updates on Saturdays instead of Tuesdays so here goes…
I weighed in at the doctor’s office at a 3 pound loss over the last two weeks; I currently stand at 185 pounds. I have been keeping my strategy simple by logging and tracking my calories. I have yet to begin any type of exercise other than walking Bentley due to dealing with allergies.
My goal for Friday, 11/11, is to weigh-in at 183 lbs. I know this is an aggressive goal but I have a good amount of fat on my belly which should burn quickly. I have introduced more fruit and veggies and reduced sugars. My overall goal is to be under 178 lbs. by the end of 2016.
Courtney’s blog is a new page I have been following because I love the fact she is taking control of her life by implementing habits that will help her achieve her goals. You cannot continue to do the same old things and expect to get brand new and awesome results. Something has to change!
So Day 3 of my 14 Days of Low Carb is done. I was at 37 net carbs by the end of the day. I know I can do better after Saturday because I actually go grocery shopping, lol. I decided to do this challenge on a whim and was not prepared.
My net carbs look like they’re at 33, but they’re actually 37. Somebody put the atkins bar I had in as net carbs, not carbs minus sugar alcohol. That’s the one thing lacking in MFP….you can’t put sugar alcohol in anywhere, so for things that contain it, you’ll have to manually enter and subtract the sugar alcohol from the carbs. I don’t like putting total net carbs in MFP because I’d have to manually enter everything, lol…it’s much easier to just do carbs minus fiber at the end of the day…but you definitely have to watch anything with…
Trying to get your motivation back to lose weight can be one of the most difficult things to do. I know, because I’ve been there. Several times. In fact, my longest rut was probably 2 years long (between 2013 and the start of 2015). I was up and down the same 10lbs and I just did not have the motivation to do anything differently. I found myself feeling terrible about myself and often times in tears on the way to (and even during) my WeightWatchers® meetings. It was terrible.
I have put together some helpful tips to help you find that motivation again and hopefully kickstart your weight loss efforts.
WEIGHT LOSS MOTIVATION TIP #1: FORGIVE AND BE KIND TO YOURSELF.
I am my harshest critic and having been around a number of people trying to lose weight, I know the same to be true for them. The way we…
Breakfast is the most important meal for people who are trying to lose weight. And eating the wrong type of food for breakfast is digging a hole before the day even begins. Don’t make these common mistakes!! Give yourself the best opportunity for success. Read this article and educate yourself, don’t assume you know it all.
Is your excess weight just not budging, despite your hard efforts? The reason for this might be because you’re making mistakes at breakfast. A morning meal kickstarts your metabolism for the day, so you don’t want to mess that up!
Here are four common breakfast mistakes people make that prevents them from reaching their weight loss goals, and how to fix each one.
Four common breakfast mistakes and how to fix them
#1: You skip the meal as a whole to save calories
Forgoing breakfast may seem like a calorie-saver, but it can actually be a fat trap (gasp!). Researchers at Imperial College London found that when people went without a morning meal, their brand reward centres lit up when they were shown images of high-calorie foods. That means turning down treats becomes harder, and you’re likely to make up for the missed calories with junkier choices later…
You might think these 9 weight loss tips are too simple to make a difference but I am here to testify to using every one of these, excluding the walking 1 mile. My MS makes walking a mile nearly impossible, but I do try to park a ways from the door of stores to force myself to walk more. This post is great!!
