50 pounds! The milestone!

centralcacyclistNovember 22, 2004

I have lost 50 pounds since last January! I lost the equivalent of an entire 3th grade child! I still have 25 to go but 50 seems amazing.

You stay with it, gal!

50 pounds is amazing! Nothing can stop you now! YAY!

Go to a pet store and lift a 50 pound bag of dog food if you want a real ego boost! That's how much you've lost!!!!!

You are so close to the goal!---over halfway there!

Thanks for inspiring us!

I am doing it the old fashioned way, eating less, exercising more. I am not following a specific plan but have cut out the things I know are bad, red meat, fried foods, butter, pastries, candy, etc. I eat fruit, salads, cottage cheese, low fat yogurt, chicken breasts. I do treat myself occasionally to a piece of candy or a cookie but not daily.

I don't have the patience to count anything, calories or carbs. I hated WW meetings. I couldn't take Jenny Craig food. So the only option left was to figure out how to make it work for myself on my own.

I walk an hour a day, up a hill if I can find one. I do 30-45 minutes of light weigh training, squats and crunches. I take an occasional day off if I a really tired or really busy. I don't go to a gym. I think taking some classes at a gym or getting some training advice might step up my progress but can't find a place to fit it in yet.

I eat 5 times a day, meals and 2 snacks. I keep the snack at about 100 calories and try to make it protein to keep my blood sugar steady. I take vitamin supplements and drink green tea.
