Default What I'm noticing...

1. Food, healthy, lowfat food REALLY tastes great when you are not stuffed from munching all day. When I am hungry it tastes so good.

2. If I don't eat the junk, I don't want the junk.

What have you noticed??

The Secret is: CONSISTENCY

A few things I've noticed....french fries actually smell better than they taste, most desserts look better than they taste, a large glass of soda water with a wedge of lime is much more refreshing on a hot day than a can of Coke and for the first time in many summers I don't feel self-conscious about wearing shorts!

You said it ladies. All fast food smells far better than it ever tasted and since I gave up soft drinks, I can't go anywhere without my water bottle. And yeast has turned into my enemy, I've been totally yeast free for 3 weeks and I can even walk through a bakery now and turn up my nose at everything, the smell just reminds me how bloated and sick I would feel if I ate it.

I have a Fitness Blog and it's where I hang out and write about weight loss, fitness and nutrition for those of us just beginning the journey to health.

I've noticed that if I don't drink enough water now, I feel like complete CRAP.

I've noticed how much better I sleep if I exercise.

I've noticed that, hey, omg, there WILL be food in the house tomorrow!!!!

Good thread, I totaly notice that the more hungry I let myself become the more I love my food - healthy food. Also not to over eat at meal times as it makes me feel bloated and tired. I also notice that if I miss my exercise my mood is down the whole day. Exercise is so good for the spirit as well as the waist line.

On the flip side, I've noticed that if I let myself get so hungry - absolutely starving - that I tend to overeat like there's no tomorrow. I have a blood sugar thing. So, I get hungry before I eat (that's a major part of the plan I'm on now), but not TOO hungry.

I noticed the same thing yesterday, Sandi!

In our office, when there's a celebration, we usually order pizza. However, there's a great lebanese mom & pop place down the street with super healthy stuff. So, about a month ago when we were planning for this celebration, I suggested we get the food from there again. Everyone agreed. So, yesterday I ate crap almost all day and when the food came, yeah it was pretty good. But last time I we got food from there I LOVED it and thought it was amazing. Instead, I felt like I ate lard all morning... which I essentially had.

of all the harsh ways i tried to lose weight all the things i've given up and gone without in my quest for the perfect body the one thing i still really really crave is chocolate!!! you gotta remember i havn't touched a drop of chocolate this YEAR! thats like 8 months. and i still have the urges. sometimes when i go back to my parents house there sat there munching on some really lovely chocolate and the smell drives me wild. its almost to much to bear.
To infinity and beyond!

I was really worried about "the chocolate situation" when I started losing weight again in 2001. For some reason, it just wasn't a big deal this time. I was able to get my sweet tooth satisfied pretty consistently as I was losing weight. Indeed, I had so much "chocolate this" and "chocolate that" that I kind-of burned out on chocolate.

What I really ended up suffering over was "the Doritos situation".

Things I am noticing after 2 weeks of dieting:

It's not as hard as I thought it would be!

I really like fruit and vegetables

I feel great after eating a satisfying low fat healthy meal

My skin feels clearer and I don't feel so sluggish

I feel better in myself

It's alot easier when you've got a good source of support

Being in control of my eating feels goooooood!

Here's to the next few weeks !
