I was cruising & saw your thread. We ALL need Help losing & maintaining our sizes. Can I hop on w U
My feelings r, Do whatever Pleases U & helps U feel Happy & Confident. And Don't let anybody else's remarks or stares affect your dignity; because ppl care, & 'we care @ 3FC about everyone', this place is like a giant-church-family. But remember IF we put 'Lots of junk' into our bodies, chances r our body health Will fail us & Nobody ever wants to go live in a 'assisted nursing care home' when we're young/@ +50 yrs. etc. from poor health/medication needs, wheel-chair bound, etc.
I eat whatever I want, but I switched to eating lower carbs/sugar/sodium & eating healthy fats, is the way I lost my 30 pounds in a year by measuring & 'eating 1 serving size portions' per meal & eating a healthy amount of proteins & veggies. So I wouldn't constantly b washing my measuring cups, until I became used to measuring by sight & spoon my portions; I bought a bag of 6 oz./8 oz. styrofoam cups to fill. Then it was easy to plate my plate/bowls. Remember to read the pasta box serving size or recipes serving, etc. How I gained 25 pounds in 1 year was because my hubby had cancer & chemotherapy & dh lost 30 pounds & his appetite to eat, but if I ate w him he would eat his fav's; pizza, ice-cream, cookies, French fries, etc. the great news is he gained 20 pounds that year; the bad news was I gained 25 pounds eating w him all the things my body was Not used to eating daily. Prior to his cancer, I ate his foods occasionally, but I always ate protein & veggies daily; not the sweets & fats that dh craved to regain his appetite & to gain weight to regain his strength. He eventually added proteins & veggies & I was able to eat normally & get back to my menu routine & I lost my 30 pounds of ugly fat that year.
Eating 1 serving size portions @ my meals, has let me stay healthy & eat sweets, pizza, cookies, etc. without gaining pounds or binge eat as long as I follow my 1 serving portion routine. I walk daily & I lift hand-weights for upper body strength & that burns cals/fats when I'm sitting.
What r your health tips?
Have a wonderful week!
