The first 'bump'
Thursday, July 08, 2010
Well, I've hit the first bump in the road. I've been on the Spark program for 5 weeks. In the first 3 weeks I lost 7 lbs, and once again thought I'd found the solution. Since then, zip ! I know that the heavier I am, the weight comes off more quickly. I have been dieting FOREVER.
I'm loving the fruits and veggies and it is easy to go under my allotted calories. When I don't see movement on the scale, I want to eat even LESS. I know that that is a BAD idea. A recent blood test showed that I am very low in potassium and vitamin D.
The key is that I really want to be healthy ! When I get some of these pounds off I will be able to breathe much easier. I know the key is exercise and I am working with 'bands' and walking. I'm not doing anything really aerobic though.
When I was younger I played tennis, softball and worked hard. I looked my very best at 50 . Then the 'relationship' failed and so have I . This sounds 'whiny' to me, but it is how I am feeling today. Tomorrow will be much improved !
