Tools to restart are here on Spark !

Sunday, May 02, 2021

Sparks is such a great tool when i use it ! I was my lowest weight in 2015-2016 so i went back and looked at my food intake for 6 months. Many times i did not log but the times i did was a bit of an eye opener. I was almost doing keto even then. I had carbs 20-100 per day but almost always veggie carbs and not pre packaged food (like atkins shakes or bars). I was surprised to see how much fruit i was eating also. I was doing higher fat than protein but really upped the fat when i went to consistent 20-30 carbs a day and rarely drank coffee which adds dairy to my day with creamer whether heavy cream or half and half. My protein was higher than it has been lately also.

I have my macros, now if i can just get a food plan mapped out using that, i may start losing again. I am still very lazy and my body hurts all the time again like it did when i was at 324 lbs so i think i am ready to work a bit harder even if slow. I have managed to keep 83 lbs off since 2013 so i can feel good about that even if i have gained 53 lbs back. WOW !!! Seeing that on paper really stinks. Need to get working on plan ! Sorry team, i did repeat this here on my blog so i can remember my restart point. Measurements done. I think i am now ready to FEEL better emotionally and physically.

    Very good blog. I hadn't thought about looking back but it's something that I am going to check out my past as well. I have gained back 23 of my 111 gone and want to work on getting off this very, very long plateau.

    I do best when I keep my carbs under 125gms of net carbs a day and get them most from veggies. Up to 3 fruits a day. No bread or similar things. Minimal processed foods. Minimal dairy - almond milk instead or low carb yogurt. Seeds, nuts, cheese - just one serving a day of these. More protein than I am currently eating. If I get my carbs and protein right my fat intake falls into place. Rooting for you!!!

    lol, I could have written this as well. We are here for you! Mindfulness is key. I am reading a life-changing book that is changing my view on why we all have this challenge of health, to begin with. If I see it as beneficial, I will keep you in the loop, I may blog about it in the future as well. Leave no friend behind when it comes to unlocking the mind to find the healthy life we all deserve. Blessings to you always! Lisa emoticon

    The food tracker is always an eye opener for me, too. Good for you for getting back into it when you are. So many people gain all their weight back, plus more, before they recommit. You did it before and you can do it again!
