well I had a pathetic dinner last night...

I decieded to go shopping last night....I got home after 8... I was figureing the ol man would have cooked but he didnt so last night I ended up ordering pizza it was just to late to cook...

So instead of eating the pizza as a whole I only ate the cheese off it.

surely this cant be good for you but not as bad for you as if I would have eaten the crust and bread part.

im so stupid.

Was just taking a look at the list of activities on WiiFit (push-ups, skipping (lol broken balance board) and jogging are in there) and I share Sark's view, providing it makes you exert the same energy as a regular workout. I can also see you'd have to be motivated and not want to cheat to get through the end of something like, I dunno, stick the cat on there at weigh in or something.

You would have to want it. I can easily see 9/10 people buying WiiFit as their first step or ENTIRE step to getting fit will play it once and then toss it asides in a Brain Training manner.

Valkenty is right - eating more and burning it off is better.

skipping meals and putting your body into starvation mode wont help you lose some of your weight, DJ. I can tell you that from experience.

Actually it will help you lose weight in time! But it'd mess up just about everything else in your body too >>;

Cella, theres this book, a top seller in the UK and US called "Skinny B*tch." It gets people really motivated to work out and eat healthy and will give you many tips on what foods to eat and what to avoid to shed pounds quick. It's an easy and fast read. The only problem is the book can be offensive. It's a blunt, honest, in your face kind of book and occasionally calls the reader a fat a$$ and other insults. I think it promotes a vegan diet, but other than that it does tell you loads of food that you can eat and shed weight quick. Kind of a hard core diet book. Just mentioning if you're interested. I was trying to find diet books yesterday to suggest to the thread and found that one since it was different.

yea...It is lovely and oh so hard to beleive its good for you to!

well I dont know that its good for you for a fact I am just assuming it's healthier than my other fav cereal Frosted Flakes. smile.gif

I could live off cereal alone tbh.

I love hunny bunches of oats
fruit loops

whats the yellow boxed one that comes in a silver bag, is yellow balls like and is made of corn? I cant remember the name but dam that stuff is good to.

I tried Barbie fairy topia cereal a few weeks ago and honestly the stuff was slammen.

raisen bran
cookie crisp

Im still hanging in there....

I think im over the lethargy symptoms of quitting sugar.

I will be wieghing myslef today at work to see if all these efforts have paid off. I'm hoping to be atleast 1 pound less than I was before.

I'm really liking those progresso weight watcher soups....me and my friend Sandi aka grandma got into an arguement at lunch yesterday...she was bitching at me about the sodium count in my soup which was around 800 mg......so to make her happy I dumped out nearly all the broth n had the vegatables.....I found it ironic that as she was bitching to me about my soups sodium levels she was doing so while eating a bag of ruffles potato chips.

nice. biggrin.gif

I have recently found myself enamoured of Kettle Chips' 'parsnip crisps.' They don't taste of Parsnips, imo, but they're bloody tasty and less fat/etc then regular crisps.

I weighed myself on 2 differnt scales this morning because I thought the first one was lying to me but infact it was not because the 2nd scale said the same

I quit Sugar 8 days ago, Ive watched what I have eaten for approximatley 8 days.

I have lost 8 pounds.

I repeat I have lost 8 pounds in 8 days.

I cant beleive this is possible...but both scales cannot be wrong.

Good. Now keep it up. No stopping.

Here is more tips for weight loss if you're interested:

QUOTE
If you’re looking for a simple, practical way to spring-clean your system, how about trying a 5-day juice FEAST? Taking a break from solid foods and instead fueling your body on only fresh, raw, nutrient-rich juices is a great way to cleanse. The body gets a rest from digesting and can use that energy instead to clear out old accumulated waste. You will also be getting a break from any refined sugars, processed starches, animal products, other cooked foods or stimulants you may normally ingest. This makes a HUGE difference for most people. You’ll lose weight, feel lighter and cleaner and best of all, can use this break as a spring-board into a healthier lifestyle afterwards.

I dunno girl....no solid food for 5 days..thats a long time to not eat. im just going to continue onward with my mission the way I been doing it, I'm really convinced its the quitting of the sugar thats boosted me along....it was amazing how horrible I felt the first 3 days of having no added sugar in anything I ate or drank...I totally felt the effects...I could barely keep my eyes open, I felt like I had a hangover ....now 9 days later I'm full of energy...I'm usually in bed quite early because I get lethargic feeling after 8...for the last few nights Ive been bright eyed and bushy tailed into 11 pm which really just never happens with me...

I'm thinking by the early evening I was crashing from all the sugar I consumed during the day and it added to my feeling exhausted by 8...

you would never think a little thing like sugar could have such an impact on the way you feel.

again I am a big coffee drinker and the minimum amount of coffee I drink per day is 2 cups of coffee at home and 2 great ones from DD during the day, so as you can see I was consuming alot of sugar there.

a regular sugar to me is 2 teaspoons...a regular sugar to DD great one is 6 teaspoons.

thank you for the linky just the same.
