Starting fresh and this week I vow to give up Bread!

Monday, August 15, 2016

I have to start somewhere and see what causes me to continue to hold on to this weight even when I am working out 6 days a week. I am going to try giving up some of the things that I feel are my failures and might be affecting me not losing weight. I have been away from spark for some time now and I am refocusing with all I have in me to try and get back on track. I love exercising at Wholesale fit and have a great support group, but this weight is holding me back from where I want to be. I just turned 46 years old and I am out of excuses on why I still weigh over 200 lbs. I try and try but never hard enough to make a change last so it is time to put my energies toward choosing the right food.

i need to stop exercising to eat and start focusing on losing weight and exercising to get healthy. I know I can do it, I just have to stop and think about what I put in my mouth. I love food and I love food that is not good for me. I struggle with willpower to choose the right food. My goal is to lose 10 lbs a month. If you are with me and struggle with the same things.. leave me a comment and maybe we can motivate each other.

    Thank you all for the advice and encouragement. I have chosen to give up bread this week because I work out 6 days a week and all I do is maintain. Something is causing my body to hold on when I am within my calories and not lose and I need to find out what it is .. I am giving up breads and pastas for the week to see how I do. It is not a forever thing just a test to see how I do with this. I have to start somewhere so this is kinda where I am at.

    Giving up bread and other wheat products was one of my best moves. In terms of reducing cravings nothing else has come close. A little is bad, don't fall for that trap, it sets of a series of addictive behaviour.

    Hi There! I am returning too! I've been working hard the last 2 weeks and getting exercise and eating right. The BIGGEST contributor to losing or not losing is what we put in our mouth. Thinking to think about. Are you drinking your water, are you measuring and weighing your food so you KNOW that you are not underestimating and actually eating a lot more calories than you think, are you cutting out extra sugars and saturated fat? I'm eating a lot of veggies, lean proteins, and really watching my portion control, cut out a lot of mindless snacking, and when I do snack it's a small cup of applesauce or apple, fruit... veggie, veggie straws (something pre portioned). Don't cut anything out TOTALLY. Let's get it in perspective and balance....health is not binging or out of control. Bread consumed in limited moderation is fine. Let's get this moving down! We can do it!!!

    I'm sure giving up your bread is the answer! Bread is a carb and it gives you energy to do the things you need to do!
