Down in my measurements! Woo hoo!
Tuesday, March 05, 2019      2 comments

I've been keeping up with my strength training, eating lots of veggies, lentil and protein and sprinkling my cardio and I'm seeing a real difference now in my body. I'm down a full inch in my waist, a half an inch in my hips and 3/4 of an inch i... Read more
Two weeks in and I'm getting into the groove and feeling good :)
Monday, February 11, 2019      1 comments

I haven't seen much movement in the scale just yet, but I'm feeling a lot better and not having to deal with any cravings or FOMO. Having a cheat day works for me because should I get food envy or want something, I just wait for the cheat day to... Read more
Rice Cauliflower fooled me today!

I'm not eating any white carbs 6 days a week right now. So, I got this "fried rice" that is actually cauliflower with other veggies to have as a side dish for my stir-fry and when I poured it out I started worrying about how much I had on my pla... Read more
One week later - how it's going so far
Monday, February 04, 2019      3 comments

So far, I've been having an easy time following eating only protein, legumes and veggies for 6 of the 7 days. Granted, because it was the first week I was really looking forward to my cheat day so that I could go crazy with eating whatever I wan... Read more
Day 2 - I faced my scale this morning
Tuesday, January 29, 2019      0 comments

I hate stepping on the scale. I don't like the numbers that come up usually. But today I did it because how am I to know how much I really need to lose if I don't know where I'm starting. I know that a few weeks ago I was 179 because I had to we... Read more
Day 1 - Back to eating healthy and working out
Monday, January 28, 2019      0 comments

The last few years have been very stressful. And unfortunately, it's taken its toll. I gained almost all the weight I lost before and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get it to go away. It was a pretty stressful last few years. But n... Read more
What an amazing thing! 13 lbs down and I had no idea that it happened

So, first off, I have been cutting sugar as much as humanly possible out of my diet. I have been increasing my protein and veggies and getting to have fruit as dessert. I haven't been as hungry and I usually forget to have breakfast until it's a... Read more
Day 5 and I'm making early progress
Tuesday, November 28, 2017      0 comments

I'm not cutting out completely everything that has sugar, but I have drastically reduced the amount of sugar I consume. I have one small portion of rice (1/2 cup) per day and I have an apple or orange for my night time dessert (because I would f... Read more

Today I started my day off with a GNC protein shake and some veggie powder. I then had a salad with two tbsp of salad dressing (homemade) and a 4 oz portion of roasted chicken. Then for dinner I had mapo ragu (1/2 cup) and 1/2 cup of white rice ... Read more
Frustrated and starting anew
Thursday, November 23, 2017      0 comments

I haven't been trying to lose weight since I last was here and of course I'm no where near where I want to be. I recently signed up for Noom and I'm utterly not impressed. I was hoping that they were going to be similar to my experience on WW an... Read more
Higher protein ... more weight loss?

Last year, I went on the Atkins diet based on my doctor's recommendation. I did lose 8 lbs within 10 days. However, it also made me very sick and I started to eat vegan because I couldn't stomach meat anymore. But that hasn't helped me with my w... Read more
Just moving on from yesterday's BBQ now

Yesterday, I didn't eat as well as I normally do and boy did I live to regret it. My stomach kept me up last night because of it. I don't think I'm used to having any processed foods anymore. Even earlier today it was still messing with me. sigh... Read more
At least I'm doing something every day
Sunday, July 02, 2017      3 comments

I've been doing exercises every morning during getting ready for the day. It's not a lot of exercise, but it does keep exercise top of mind and I get at least something in every day so that if I'm not able to later in the day I can feel good abo... Read more

So far this week, I haven't seen the weight stay the same nor go up. That's really good! I typically see ups and downs all week with Thursday being the best day to weigh in. I've lost 2.5 lbs this week so even if I don't lose any more weight thr... Read more
So disappointed in my DASH diet books ... returning them
Thursday, June 29, 2017      1 comments

I went through them very quickly earlier today and it was extremely disappointing to see what they had in these books. One pretty much sounded exactly like the South Beach Diet with the phase 1 only worse as it very much focused on artificial ch... Read more
