I just keep trying new things & some of them work for me. Winters come & I carb crave. Past winters I would buy boxes of excellent, small cookies (usually pricey)--I was usually satisfied with half a cookie, or just one. This winter I decided not to buy a box. While I occasionally enjoy a small baked treat outside of the house, I think I have successfully broken a habit at home. And my pants fits much better.

3.5 months: down 4.5 lbs. Now that the weather is improving, I'm mixing in some hikes with my gym time. Recently enjoyed dinners featuring sauteed garlic, steamed broccoli, walnuts & a squeeze of lemon juice. With a side of chicken sausage. Slow & steady & making progress!

Slow & steady . . . wins the race, I hope. Three months of eating more carefully & lotza gym time = 3.5 pounds down. Broke up with long-time BF yesterday. Thought about buying ice cream sandwiches to console myself, but opted for a $2 bottle of citrus-flavored sparkling water. And I had a great rowing workout! Staying strong!!!

Started walking yesterday where I live with a group walking for 1/2 hour. They're planning to do it on weekdays, so I'll try to get to most of them Hoping to lose more wt. At times,I blame it on taking insulin for gaining wt.

The last two weeks contained alot of after-hours work responsibilities. I tried to plan ahead with snacks, salads & healthy soups. I made it to the gym even if it was only for 25 minutes. Holding steady with my weight loss.
Keeping a minimalist fitness log has been very helpful. Keeping me on track for gym time!

After seven weeks of greater fitness efforts & dietary diligence (but not "a diet"), I've lost two pounds & an inch on my waist. It's said that slow weight loss is good, and this is slow!
One successful strategy is planning ahead for my exercise. If I leave the house in the morning with my gym gear packed
I am much more likely to work out after work.
I have been sleeping well & generally feeling very well.

Thanks Ahmad! Feeling really positive about my habits right now. A bit worried about some demands coming up at work derailing my schedule & efforts. Just trying to plan & avoid getting off track.

Comment by Ahmad on January 28, 2014 at 5:39am

Congrats Deborah, keep up the good work

Comment by Deborah on January 28, 2014 at 4:45am

Yesterday marked 13 days in a row at the gym. I really enjoy going; I almost always stay longer than planned. LOL Starting to get into the rhythm of double sets when I strength train. Most importantly, I feel really good: sleeping great, no colds all winter, good energy, more able to avoid the siren song of carbs.
And, after a month of this, the scale also show my efforts. Slow weight loss is recommended & that what I've got: down 1.6 lbs in a month!

Deborah, nope I was wondering if taking supplements does it help or make a difference? Sorry!
