Weigh In week 16

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Whoo Hoo!!! Down 2 more pounds!!!

I've changed my ticker to reflect my total loss and goal.

I've drastically increased my fat and protein and dropped my carbs over the past few weeks and have found my weight going down again!!

I've been recording in Fitday and taking all my supplements. I've been concentrating on getting the protein up and the carbs down.

My protein and fat intake is high. Much higher than the "experts" recommend, and that's just fine with me. I've been going for 95g protein daily and got at least that except for yesterday (Saturday). I've not been looking for added fat, but have been adding cream to any shakes I have and I've not been avoiding them.

I've been meeting and exceeding the recommended levels of vitamins and nutrients. In fact, the only thing I'm "deficient" in is carbs and fiber! And sodium, which is getting to be almost as "bad" as saturated fat. I don't add salt to many foods, but this isn't because I think it's bad for me, but because I often forget to!

I've been trying to get moving more, but I'm still not being too consistent with exercise. I've now bought a Tai Chi DVD and am going to try it for a while. It's for people with arthritis and stiff joints, so I figure it can't hurt!

I've also been doing some weights, but until I get my bench out of my son's room and into a more accessible area, this will be spotty.

    low carb is so good for people, i just don't understand why more don't see it too. Meat, fruit , and vegs....like the caveman ate. SIMPLE! I get all the fiber i need from the fruit and veg. I still take my vitamins too, have noticed how the colds stay away a lot more. Bread still calls me (on weekends), but the weight gained from the weekend comes off so easily once Monday thru Friday diet starts. This is a lifestyle i can live with too!!! And I fee much freeer...not being a slave to sweets!! you know...the "got to have it now" urges. Aren't we smart?
