Let's focus on that! Plus it's the start if a new day!
Don't be down on yourself. Keep focusing in the positive. I love all I the inspirational quotes you have been posting!

The best I have come up with is this... Any other time I've lost weight, I have done it with the recommendations of Conventional Wisdom... So, I cut calories (sometimes drastically) and do excess cardio. I do this for as long as my body will sustain this way of life - usually it's about 4-5 months... And usually I can lose a good 50 lbs in that time. But once I hit that 4-5 month mark... I am STARVING - after months of not eating properly - and I am HUNGRY... So, I eat, eat, eat... and eat some more... Phew - no longer hungry - but I am eating too much... So I gain, gain, gain and feel sorry for myself - but I am hungry. Before I know it - it's all back on... And I feel so guilty for losing control and I get down on myself. Before I know it - I've gained even more. I don't want to work out, because I am still exhausted, but now I have all this excess weight on top of it all. It's a vicious cycle - it truly is. So, then I went looking everywhere to find the answers... How can I lose weight by eating as much as possible? How can I excercise with the least amount of TIME effort? Because this time, I wanted my losses to be maintainable... EVERYONE says they are doing a "lifestyle change" - but the lifestyle they are trying to change to, is not maintainable for the duration of the rest of their lives. If a person has to have "cheat days" to get through their new "lifestyle" - then it's not really a lifestyle change... Which brought me on this never-ending quest to find the answers for me - which would fit my life and how I live it... Essentially - I didn't want to change my lifestyle, I wanted my new "lifestyle" to fit who I truly was, and I wanted to achieve it with very little effort. And that's how I found the Primal way of eating... I LOVE meat - I always have... In my previous lifestyle changes - I've always felt encouraged to eat as little lean meat as possible... It was awful! Now, I get to eat as much meat as I want to... LURVE meat! In previousl lifestyle changes, I've been encouraged to eat as many steamed veggies covered in chemical imitation butter products - YUCK! Now, I eat roasted vegetables fried in (all natural) bacon grease or butter - YUMMY! In previous lifestyle changes, I was encouraged to eat "boxed fiber bars" and the like - with God only knows what in them... Now, I make my own - and WOW are they yummy - I do not miss those bars in a box one little bit. I just love, love, love this food... I love making it, I love eating it, it tastes wonderful, and my body loves it. It's all natural - there are no chemicals in it, my food doesn't come from a box, can or jar and I don't feel guilty ever. I don't have cheat days, I don't need cheat days... Because who wants to cheat with eating chemically laden food out of a box, when I can eat the real thing? It tastes waaaay better. So, is this truly a "lifestyle change" - yes, I think so. Can I truly eat this way for the rest of my life and enjoy it. Yes, I can. Do I want to? Yes, I do. I think, when you find the lifestyle that fits how you want to live your life and how you enjoy living your life, then it's really not a lifestyle change any more, it's living in harmony with yourself. OK - sorry for the huge long reply - and I hope I didn't sound rude - I am just so passionate about truly finding what works for you... and when that is found, only then, can it be sustainable. D~
Well said! It makes sense that it will work better if it is something you can live with forever.

Awesome!

I have more trouble on the weekends too. It's when we get together with friends or I'm so tired from working and cooking all week I just want to take out. Planning ahead for the weekends definitely will help.

Walked 30 minutes on the treadmill yesterday morning and tracked my food in take for the day. That is until 6pm when we had friends come over. Then it was a free for all. Ate, drank and was merry. Back on track this morning but there are cookies in the pantry whispering my name so I just might need to find a way for them to be worked into my food schedule.

DH bought me a Fit Bit Zip which I will start using tomorrow. We'll see how that goes.

Good luck everyone!

Yesterday was the annual fundraiser for an organization I volunteer with, so I spent 3 hours on my feet setting up a raffle table & dining room. Does that count? And the dinner was fairly healthy (the apple crisp & two beers I had after dinner, not so much). Maybe I'll hit the bike tonight?

I microwaved that for a few minutes, then added the chia seeds and about 1/2 cup yogurt. This was really good!
I love smoothies! I usually add some hemp seed hearts, soaked oatmeal, spinach, banana, green tea with some raw honey and frozen peaches.I use my ninja personal sized cup so it's perfectly proportioned. 3-4 servings fruits and veggies, high in protein, high in a good source of carbs, antioxidants and it provides enough sweetness to satisfy my ridiculous sweet tooth without a ton of calories. When I do oatmeal I use medjool dates to sweeten it. Chop up some apples, grate a bit of carrot, add some chia or hemp seed hearts (or both). I also love to use spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, cloves, and a bit of salt. For me, I love baked goods. I mean I REALLY love them. So I try to make sure I use natural sweetners/unrefined as much as possible that way when I indulge in other areas I'm not going over my calories.

But I was having some weird symptoms and for me it turned out to be too much water added to it rather than helped it.

On my last well visit to my doctor, my blood sodium concentration turned out to be really low. It's supposed to be 135 to 145 mEq/L; mine was 127. From what I read 125 is considered serious. So I drank less water and my last reading was 135, so my doctor is not doing anything at the moment. It's very confusing and I'm not sure what's causing this. I was being very careful about how much salt I ate too due to my high blood pressure, so I may have been taking in too little salt, or my body was retaining the fluid I was drinking making the overall concentration low. The main issue with this is brain swelling (very scary), so I was having the symptoms I just didn't know what was causing it. The symptoms are weakness, fatigue, headache, nausea and vomiting (didn't have this, but my stomach bothered me whenever I ate), muscle cramps, confusion, irritability. I just didn't make the connection because I thought it was simple PMS and/or pre-menaposal symptoms. I was also have trouble with focusing my eyes. Again, figured I was dealing with middle 40s eye stuff. I have been drinking less water for about a month now and feel so much better. Like I can actually focus on a task and have some energy. But I think it's a band-aid. The real problem is I need to drop some pounds and get healthy. Now I have the energy to do so.
I can't convince my Dr to check my sodium levels - I've been told it's highly unlikely I'd be too low b/c salt is in everything. I tried to explain that since I make ALL my own food, salt is barely in anything. Still wouldn't check. I was passing out from BP plummeting when I changed positions. All your symptoms you listed above are like mine. So I've been making a point of adding salt to my plate at dinner - and about once a week I have a bowl of chips. Things have been so much better since then! Salt, in the right proportions is very important.

My doctor scolded me.. nicely.. told me if I didn't take care of myself I couldn't help anyone.) I know I'm allergic to eggs and tomatoes. I also have mold allergies and because last spring was so wet (we literally had hundreds of mushrooms growing in our lawn), these started spilling over into reactions to food. I went on a elimination diet. I cut back to really simple foods. I had a smoothie for breakfast, a salad for lunch and a dinner. I basically had only chicken and fish, brown rice or quinoa, and any fruits and vegetables except for nightshade plants or anything like mushrooms. I stayed away from coffee (eek) and condiments (vinegar). Used lemon and olive oil or coconut oil. I didn't starve and I lost 15 pounds in 15 days. That's how much water I was retaining. My blood pressure went to normal almost instantly. I felt better. I was terrified to go into phase two where you start adding things back in because I didn't want to feel bad again.
WE went Gluten-free just over 4 years ago. It was the best thing ever! Our oldest was having random allergic reactions to different foods, once going gluten-free that (as well as a pile of other things) stopped. Now we're also corn-free, and b/c our newest baby has different sensitivities, I'm currently also dairy-free and tree-nut free. Eating is interesting at times, but the difference in health is amazing. Though I am REALLY looking forward to adding cheese back into my diet. I found the first year, and vacation the hardest to maintain, but after one successful trip, it was much easier. Disney can accommodate so many things.

When i plateaued near my ideal weight- it took exercise in the endurance type. I currently walk 5 miles or 10000 steps a day. I do not run because i do not want to hurt my knees and have a lower quality of life in older ages.
Yes! I highly recommend the and diet for this reason. It's all about eating - a lot. It's just changing what/how you eat. It makes sure to add things like ice cream or other 'fun' foods each day so you never have to feel you're giving up something. Expending 300 calories more than intake allows you to loose weight at an optimal level. If you're exercising too much, you're body retains. So start by increasing metabolism as Disney BEfore Sally said, but then be aware you also need to increase calories once you begin working out more strenuously. Otherwise you'll plateau and possibly begin storing again.

1- don't drink your calories (so, water water water...and I do unsweet tea and coffee with splenda though I have heard that fake sweeteners can cause you to gain weight too, so moderation)
2- no eating after 7pm
3- small portions (what I did was take 2 full meals and break them up throughout the day and that's all I'd eat...salad here, fruit there, meat something here, side type thing there...eating 1 thing at a time- several times throughout the day). And if I'd go out for a meal, I'd never finish the entire plate.
4- I allowed for 1 splurge day a week where I might eat that cupcake...or a burger (burgers are my tough thing to give up)...or get a cocktail. My splurge day was always a weekend day.
5- choose lots of raw diet type things (raw veges, fruit, nuts...)...and poultry and seafood. Minimize sugar intake.
Refined sugar is a big one for me. It was my hardest thing to give up. I started by going to evaporated cane sugar - it's so flipping expensive I didn't want to use it for baking I use honey or maple syrup. I love caffeine, but really dislike coffee. I'm more a caffeinated dessert in a glass kind of person but when trying to be healthy this left me not sure what to do. SO now I use maple syrup in an americana. It sweetens enough, with fewer calories than sugar and none of the negative side effects of artificial sweeteners (headaches being a huge one for me).

Today I actually started a work-out! Admittedly, I didn't get very far into it, but I had legs and abds down, and that's better than yesterday with nothing at all!

This sounds very much like the journey we've been on as a family! Though primal/paleo wasn't working for me long term. I did find after about 4(ish) months I was back to feeling icky. So now we do a combo paleo/Mediterranean and it works better. Paleo is very low in carbs even good carbs. And this hurt our family. So we have carbs in the form of sweet potatoes and other veggies. We have papadums and beans when we want. But mostly we eat veggies and fruit. We're still pretty high in protein, but it's mostly fish, beans, and chicken. We have bacon about once a week or so. We still love our red meat, but we only have it about once a month now and we're better for it.

But this is why it's important for each individual to figure out what works for their body. A dietician friend of ours helps ppl figure out the best diet for their unique self. I really think this is key. My body has it's own shape, and what works for my shape and genetics wouldn't work for someone else. But too many people lose sight of this and try to change their body from what ever shape it's meant to be into a shape someone else has determined would be better.

If it's movement that is not your normal, lifting, shifting weight that isn't your ordinary, then yes it counts! Find something you love and do it. If your bike is fun, then get on and ride!

I find workouts boring. So I lift children lift and toss 20lb child 10 times in a row, take a break and do it again. Do the same with the 40lb child. And when I can do it with the 65lbs child, then I'm doing good. They are great at pushing me to lift more, get stronger and are the most intense trainers ever! "Again mommy! Again" I just make sure to keep my body in good form, tummy firm, core straight, side lift with a twist. Do it in a lunge for added work-out.

Get creative

OMG, so DH is back from a weekend of ice fishing (a hobby I will never understand LOL!). I noticed that ever since he got home all he wants to do is feed me. I'm not kidding. A piece of chocolate, tortilla chips, soda, for dinner.. DH:"do you want a taco".. Me: "Were having lasagna".. DH:"Do you want a taco too?" .. Me: "Are you insane."

OK, so he's Italian (northern) and eats anything he wants and likes to feed other people and he missed me and he's trying to be nice.. but OMG just stop already. LOL

Yesterday we walked two lengths in the mall shopping for shoes...I hate the mall and I hate shopping for shoes lol! I left the mall without shoes after two hours though having walked a fair bit I felt ok. Last night went to crap with a night out at the pub for a friends birthday. Drinks, fried bar food and cake. But I was sensible too.


Today I walked through a home and garden expo for 5 hours then proceeded to go grocery shopping after. My feet and gluts hate me tonight lol, but it's the pushing force to start on the treadmill again tomorrow. I'd like to do mornings but since I already have to get up at 530 to get to work on time I will have to wait til after work :-/

I start weighing in tomorrow morning! Here's to all of us! We can do it!!!! Good luck!!!

I had a pretty good food day - nothing really bad. I also did a lot of housework. Vacuum, laundry, cleaning (that had to have burned some calories- right?)!

But I was sensible too. Today I walked through a home and garden expo for 5 hours then proceeded to go grocery shopping after. My feet and gluts hate me tonight lol, but it's the pushing force to start on the treadmill again tomorrow. I'd like to do mornings but since I already have to get up at 530 to get to work on time I will have to wait til after work :-/ I start weighing in tomorrow morning! Here's to all of us! We can do it!!!! Good luck!!! Sent from my iPad using DISBoards

Yes, definitely!

I stayed on track for Saturday and Sunday- not a long time but a start. I was REALLY CRAVING sugar last night. Thank God there was nothing in the house and DH didn't offer to get anything (he usually jumps on the opportunity- maybe he's starting to get it!). Here's to focus and drive for the week!

I did my goals this morning. Yeah! I don't know if you guys realize what a big deal it is that I'm accomplishing this new morning routine. I hate hate hate mornings. Did I mention I hate mornings? Even in college when I was young and cute and a size 3 like 9 million years ago, I would do my jogging and/or weights before lunch. I feel lucky I'm working part time and can get the kids on the bus and still have time to exercise and get ready for work. I'm hoping that I will get this ingrained into myself. Even after only a few days, what 5 maybe, I wake up easier, have more energy, feel nicer and more patient. It's amazing! And I couldn't help myself.. I checked and I'm down a couple pounds..

Awesome! Go, you.

(I'm writing this from the treadmill, so I'm being good, too. )

Awesome! I don't mind mornings but 5am is not a fun time to wake up and go to the gym. Ugh- my goal is to go three times a week- two am and one pm while the kids are in speech/ot. Of course tonight is the pm night and my car literally broke down and we didn't make it to therapy or the gym- but I'm ready to add just one more am this week!
