Carla's progress

Postby carla » Sun Oct 29, 2006 2:04 pm

Carla has lost 2 kg this week! She does not know how she managed this really but thinks it probably had something to do with 'that time of the month' rather than any actions on her behalf. But she is grateful for the little kick-start from nature anyway.

Carla is going to make more of an effort this week with her eating habits at night, which is her most vulnerable time, and with her exercise. Carla thinks even if she just gets an hour's walk in a day, that this is better than one big aerobic-exercise session followed by days and days without any exercise.

Carla has taken to talking about herself in the third person. We are not sure why. Perhaps she thinks it will help her maintain an objective view.

Wow Carla, 2 kgs is fantastic, well done!!

You are correct on the exercise thing, it is better to build up to doing big aerobic sessions so that your body gets used to the exercise that you are doing. It is the same with walking, if you are not used to is, start slow and build up by gradually going further each time or each few days.

Eating at night is always a danger zone! Try and occupy yourself instead of reaching for the munchies!! Easier said than done, I know, but I was always a big night eater (choccies, chips even sandwiches!) but now I reach for a piece of fruit or some tinned fruit and yoghurt or just yoghurt on its own, but just not too late!! I believe it is recommended not to eat anything 2 hours before you go to bed. Hope this is some help to you!

Hi Ally,

Yes, one of my obstacles is that I tend to get realllllly motivated to do something, go gung-ho, muck up or re-neg on committment and then it all just flops on its proverbial behind!

Probably a lot of people could identify with that game!

Anyway, sigh. Gained a kilo this week .

Im putting into practice a method I have made up for myself and have stuck with it 2 days so far.

It's simple and I dont have to think too much about it, what Im going to eat, that is. Im having a fresh fruit breakfast, salad lunch and vegetable dinner. No wheat, no milk except except skim in coffee and am now using sweetners in my tea and coffee, no other dairy, no sweets and minimal oil only for stir-frying vegies. And heaps of water.

Im going to do this for two weeks, take multi-vitamin capsules, and then slowly build on it, bringing back other foods into it and making the recipes more interesting.

I just feel I need something really simple at the moment to stick to. I know this seems like just another crash course. But it's different because it isnt something I got motivated about or excited about, just resigned to for now. I dont want to have to think too much about it. Just a simple regime. When I get hungry, I just have some fruit or some tofu or a few nuts or raw vegies.

I *am* getting hunger pains, but like Oprah's trainer (allegedly) said " Honey, those aren't hunger pains, they're fat-burning pains!"

And I dont intend to do it any longer than for 2, maybe 3 weeks.

Been walking quite a lot the last 2 days.

Oh yes...and no meat.

The other thing about this is method is that I am hoping it will get me used to dealing a little with hunger pangs where I dont feel it so much after a couple of weeks, and just used to the idea of eating less. Then Ill start aiming for 'quality'.

hi carla best wishes with the program you have laid out for the next week or so. dont stress about the 1kg gain, as long as you get back on the wagon this week you will be fine.

i also like things to be simple. im not a gourmet person and with a 10 month old i dont have time to be spending in the kitchen. stay healthy :)

Thanks everyone for your lovely encouraging words!

Im pretty happy with how this is going! Day 3 today, and Ive stuck to it! Because it IS simple. Am also finding my hunger pangs are lessening! yay. Also when I get those munchies which before would have had me eating a biscuit that becomes two biscuits which becomes three biscuits...which...you see where Im going with this. Or bread, or a piece of cheese, or having one of those instant noodle packs....

Well now, I just have a piece of fruit or a bit of tofu or a carrot or tomato, or even just a glass of water, because I know the rules and the rules are simple. Feeling less bloated too, energy levels not bad. Not having wheat products I think is a bonus in terms of the bloated feeling being reduced.

Tonight Im cooking chicken and vegetable curry for my family to eat for dinner tomorrow when Im at work. It's smells and looks and tastes...mmmm mmmm...but its ok, I wont miss out too much. I will prepack the vegetable contents of it and some rice for *my* dinner tomorrow night. Will still get the flavour and a fair bit of bulk, because I put heaps of vegies in!

Yippety do dah....
