I like my carbs too much to cut many of them out but I used to love watching George Stella on Food Network and wondered what had happened to him. So thanks for this link and I just may try out some of his recipes.View Thread
Had some good things happen this week that I wanted to share.
Had 2 people I know tell me I look 10 years younger.
I'm under 250 lbs. (249) for the first time in about 20 years.
The girl who works at the YMCA and showed me all the machines when I first joined asked me to come see her after I worked out the other day, and when I did she said she wanted me to know how impressed she was by my dedication in coming every day and working so hard.
An acquaintance at my old church I saw a couple of weeks ago contacted me on Facebook, said I looked great, and asked me what I was doing to lose weight. She said she could use some help, so we are going walking tomorrow morning and will chat about it then.
Best of all though is that I feel like I have my life back. I'm really grateful.
--Journal everything you eat every day. --Make small weight loss goals for yourself rather than always looking at the total amount you have to lose. The big picture can be overwhelming and discouraging. --Make note of and celebrate NSV's (non-scale victories). They help you keep going when the scale isn't cooperating. --Give yourself small rewards for reaching some of your goals. Every 10 pounds or so I get myself a little something like a new lipstick or nail polish, or an item of clothing on sale in a smaller size. --Don't beat yourself off for going off track. Just pick yourself back up and keep moving forward. --Stay involved on this board or whatever weight loss board you choose rather than simply lurking. It helps to have a place to go to where people understand what you are going through, have advice, tips, recipes, give you encouragement, etc.View Thread
