Down 1.5 lbs today !!! 22 lbs so far, very happy !!! This is my #weightloss plan so far….

Current weight 222 – down 22 lbs in about 5 months.

I have been following this plan for about 5 months. Here it is. I’ve been messing with it a little, but mostly it’s been staying the same. Healthy eating and lots of walking. It seems to be working.
No sugary foods- Included on this list: Candy, juice, soft drinks, chocolate, donuts and cake. (Typing this up makes me want to have all of these items) Foods I am going easy on: White flower bread products, fried foods, beer/wine, red meat and ketchup.
Every day Eating: Fruit in the morning, for lunch, fish or chicken with vegetables and salad, for dinner eat reasonably, after dinner a reasonable snack.
Exercise: Walking 5 to 6 times a week about 50 minutes to 75 minutes, usually after dinner. I have been walking about 2 to 3.5 miles per walking session. Averaging about 15 miles of walking a week. Notes: I am tracking what I eat at the end of the day. (I have been posting this in this blog regularly) I am also tracking my walking sessions and the amount of days I have gone without eating sugary foods. I am weighing myself every week. When I eat out and on out social occasions I will not follow the plan except that I will not eat sugary foods and I will try to be reasonable. I am taking about 2 shots a night of a mix of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar and warm water.
The goal: To lose weight slowly and keep it off. I am hoping to lose 2 to 5 pounds per month.
The results so far: I have lost 22 pounds in about 5 moths. (So down to 222)
And finally if anyone has any suggestions or comments please chime in. I am all about improving this plan.

 

I had a pretty good week…I hope I am down when I weigh myself tomorrow….

The never ending struggle with #binge eating at night…my thoughts

This is a never ending war for me. I think I have it beat then it comes back -always at night. I have had more success by doing 3 things.

Having a small snack around 930 pm, usually a whole wheat English muffin and a piece of fruit (I know this goes against the advice of not eating after 9 pm…but that advice just leads to more binging at night for me.)

The 2nd thing that helps is shots of apple cider vinegar (I found Bragg the brand to work the best) with a little water, one at about 8 pm and another about 10 pm. And a third if I feel like I am about to binge. For what ever reason the apple cider vinegar kills my hunger.

And finally my nightly walk after diner has helps. (I think it is because it gives me less time to eat)
