Journey Continues: food in ounces



Well almost at the 200 mark. For some this may seem like nothing, well for me its a big deal. from 290 to here was a huge trip. But the last 60 pounds are thanks to the lap band and the OCC. New lesson, count food in ounces...wow what a concept. I hadn't really been utilizing my new tool I found out as I tried to see what the "hold up" was. I needed to go back to basics.

1. Eating protein first really does make a difference!

2. Cutting out sugar in all forms - hard as hell but needed, this alone has made me feel so much better

3. No white flour or gluten - go figure, I guess I was sensitive to this one. Only reason I bought into this was how much better I feel without it. No more asthma attacks, racing heartbeats, and more energy (cutting sugar probably fits in here too)

4. When I feel like eating go "play" with my cloths and tape measure..yep it works

5. Start with 3 ounces and have 1 more if still hungry. (4 ounces is half a cup). Funny how when I see this visually my thoughts change.

6. Eat clean foods that I prepare myself to the best of my ability. Another way to have control and pick the best food I can, since I am eating less of it.

Now, if I can get my exercise in I will be happy. My next area of improvement, after 30 days (length of time it takes to form new habits).

It is paying off..getting back to basics, thanks to the book "The Bandwagon" and a slight fill, which has resulted in a 6 pound loss. Finally moving again. Now three weeks in, I am going to make a concerted effort to get some kind of exercise in..I think I am going to settle on the "Firm" I have a few of their strength training video's and I need to firm up before I go for my TL surgery in December, plus they are 30 minutes long. I am not good for long workouts. Of course this does not include the walking I have been doing. Three weeks without refined our added sugar or flour has also made a huge difference as I mentioned before. I am very hopeful..now just got to keep the mind in sync with the body..

Keep up the food in ounces!
