Healthy Eating Life-style end of wk 8; I better get crackin’

Another week, and not another pound.  Good morning to all!  I regret to say, I have plateaued!  It’s still okay.  I have not gone back up the scale so I am still mildly happy.  It is a good thing other things are getting done in my life, so I don’t get too down on myself.

So here’s the thing…the first four weeks were very successful with losing 10 lbs.  The next four weeks are pretty much slow going or none.  I started at 150 lbs and now I sit at 137 lbs.  How do I fix this?  Well, that is easy!  Look back at the first four weeks and see what I did differently.  I don’t even have to look, I already know.

First and foremost, I am not drinking water, hardly at all now.  Spring is coming, I should be getting thirsty soon!  Next, most of the first four weeks, I stuck to eating eggs and green beans or turkey and green beans twice a day, adding a bit of carbs with supper and was drinking 2 – 3 bottles of water a day, which amounts to 4 – 6 eight ounce glasses of water.  The next four weeks, I became confident in my weight-loss because I had lost 10 lbs and so I slacked off.  Well, no more!  That’s it!  I’m going to get crackin!” and by that I mean eggs.  Back to the protein and fibre twice a day.  If I don’t lose a pound next week, I am not posting about it.  There, that should motivate me.

All in all I am doing okay, it is just taking longer than I expected.  Already this morning, I have had two cups of tea (lots of milk in it) and no water.  There’s my first mistake.  Okay, no more tea until I down 1 bottle of water.  That shouldn’t be so difficult!  I can do it!  Blogging about it, is helping me to at least stick to going without junk food.  I am over doing the fruit, although I know it is healthy, it still has natural sugar which turns to fat when eaten.  I need to increase the veggies.

It definitely sounds better to say I have lost 13 lbs in 8 weeks, than to say, I lost zero pounds in one week.  It’s all in how you look at it, as to whether you are going to kick yourself when you are already down.  No, I am not going to do that.  I am good.  I am ready to start fresh.  I’m going to get a bottle of water right now.  How about you?  Are you on a healthy eating lifestyle kick, don’t care, or always?

Thank you for checking in.

I’m Frazzled Again.

      1. That sounds awesome, greens and protein are best eaten together. Carbs are okay, better when eaten alone or with fibrous greens, it digests better that way apparently. Good luck eith your healthy eating lifestyle!

    1. It probably came from you exercising, fat turning to muscle. Are you feeling like you are firming up? Muscle weighs more than fat. Go by the clthes you wear. Do they feel a bit looser? I know, that isn’t going to win your bet, but it will win the fight against fat! Good luck!

    1. Thank you Jen, my taste buds are pretty strong and don’t like much of anything. Green beans are high in fibre. The fibre is important with the protein. Probably brocoli and spinache wouldb e better, but I dont like any of the strong tasting veggies. Thank you for your suggestion though, I will have a look. I didn’t realize they were starchy. I will definitely investigate.

  2. Frazzle, I’m on the opposite end of the spectrum. I’m trying to gain weight and having a tough time of it. After contending with so many deaths, and then involved with Hospice care with Rocky and Echo, I lost too much weight. I’ve learned from the past the more I focus on needing to gain weight, the more it does not happen. So with that said, I’m just going to keep eating small meals and maintain FAITH I will gain those 5 pounds I require. Same goes for you. Maintain FAITH you will loose ….. And it will happen!! 😘

    1. Many would be envious to be in your position, however, I know not to be envious, as I was once underweight, until I was 29 years old and wuit smoking. My weight problemthen was because of extreme anxiety, sometimes crippling and smoking two packs of cigs a day. I think cigarettes increase your metabolism and causes more nervous reactions. If you can get over the stress of the past year you will most likely gain your five lbs. I am pretty laxadaisy these days so my stress elvel is way down, not burning calories that way like I did when I was 95 lbs and smoking. Good luck with your weight.

      1. Aw, thank you, Frazzle. No it is nothing to be envious over. I require weight on me especially now that I’m about to do some really heavy gardening. I’ve been thin all my life yet I know my optimum weight. I started today eating more and with food that has high calories. I’m pretty sure cigarettes do increase metabolism unless you eat constantly and am overweight due to excess food. Thank you again for you well wishes!!! 🌹
