Back on track

Saturday, June 04, 2011

It's June, and I'm back on track with losing about 5 pounds a month - 2011 is turning out OK so far. After eliminating gluten from my diet, I discovered that I can't handle dairy (and eggs are iffy). I'm a bit surprised to find that, after I stopped eating foods that my system couldn't process, my body is dropping weight and returning my strength and stamina. It's been nearly 6 months and I'm starting to think I no longer need to hold my breath - the dietary changes really have made a significant difference in my health.

After hitting a plateau in May, I'm making changes - next challenge is doubling my workout time each week so I can make progress this summer. (This isn't as drastic as it might sound - I've been getting one good workout a week and I know I can do better.) My goal is to lose a total of 60 pounds by the end of the year - 21 down, 39 to go.

    Hmmm makes me wonder what foods my body isn't too fond of... Glad you're back on track and finding out what works and doesn't work for you. :)

    Congrats on your lost so far. I like your goal for the end of the year. I was thinking about cutting out gluten myself. I just would really like to give my body what it needs. I am starting off in small steps of taking things out of my eating habits that I do not need. Like right now I am not eating french fries which is a big deal for me. Next month I am going to work on cutting out sugar. I am so excited. Keep up the good work you are doing. I know you are going to reach your goal by the end of the year. One work out a week is better than nothing at all. Remember that emoticon
