Eating Right

So - once again I am "dieting" But not really dieting, cause it isnt really bothering me. More so, just making healthier choices.

I started 3 weeks ago on May 6th 2010. One of my Pharmacists, Alison decided we should do a "bigger loser" challenge at work for 8 weeks. Where we all weigh in on Thursday nights and make sure to eat better and try to exercise during this time frame. I weighed in on May 6th at 277. I am at 271 three weeks later.

I have quit soda. I only drink water at work. I have pretty much given up bagels & creamcheese at breakfast, and chose fruit instead, maybe eggs. I am having veggies and fruits for snacks- so instead of cheese balls or chips and dip I have fresh green & red peppers sliced up and carrots with ranch dip. Sliced apples, strawberries, or pineapples with cream cheese dip too. Delicious!! My biggest problem is snacking at work. So I pack a healthy lunch and snack daily ;) And I have also given up alot of bread. I am using Josephs flax flat bread. And I am eating more salad with either lunch or dinner.

I havent exercised much. Maybe once or twice a week. I did just get a new MP3 player and walked 1.22 miles, so plan on doing that every other day, if not every day. I do work fulltime, and I am overweight (obviously) and have Cystic Fibrosis- so exercising daily tends to take alot out of me. But I will start out slowly and work my way up.

Just wanted to post and give an update, not like anyone reads!

  1. Thats good Feli! I was 274 when I started end of august so you can do it! Im at 82 lost so far Im trying for 129 lost total but I cant wait to get to 100 lost! lol But your doing it the right way you dont need to exercise that much atleast 30 minutes a day and that can be just a walk it doesnt have to be anything big for the first 60 pounds all I did was count calories, eat better and do my exercise bike for atleast 30 minutes a day and it came off about 10 pounds a month which is a good pace. Just keep doing it and ull get used to eating better its about training your body to liking the foods and getting used to eating them. Im on fb if you need any help ttyl
