Week one completed…

So my fitbit sends me things and this is a recap of last week. My first full week with the fitbit. I’m still working on figuring it all out but so far it’s done most of the work for me. I lost 1.1 lbs and didn’t eat any cereal or bread. It’s a beginning. Now it’s onto week 2. I had some gluten free bread and I’m not impressed but if I’m really missing it I can make this a go to bread. I had some rice cold cereal and I’m not impressed but know that this can be a good too also. I think I’ll just stick with no bread and cereal for a while. It’s to early in the plan to add these things back anyways.

Yesterday I got a gift from Deb. She sent me the Wheat Belly book written my William Davis, MD. We are going to read this together and learn how to limit and enjoy without feeling deprived and to learn why we need to do this. Since I’m not self diagnoising me, I’m just looking for a better way to eat and feel good I’m not going to take all wheat from my diet but will learn from this book the goods and bads and go from there. There has to be a place in the middle that works for health, body and soul and the mind that has to agree too.

So my stats from my fitbit for my first full week are below. I am doing okay and just need to keep it up. I am fine with a 1.1lb loss and don’t care if it takes me a year to loss all I want too as long as I listen to my body and teach it a few things along the way.

I agree, as long as you are going in the right direction, that is what is important. I used to think I could not live without cold cereal, but now I never eat it. I am a big fan of oatmeal with a few dried berries and few almonds, cooked with almond milk. Good luck!

The Fitbit is fun isn't it? I have an older, clip on one that I have been wearing. I don't do a lot of walking still but I figure it's good to see what I do when I'm not going out of my way so I have an idea of how much I really need to work to get in that 10,000 a day once I'm back up to par & able to:-)

I read Wheat Belly eons ago. It just confirmed what is right for me, primal way of eating. I was recently gifted the cookbook. I haven't made anything yet.

You have to start somewhere. 1 lb is better than nothing!! Way to go, Julie. :) I agree that you shouldn't cut out wheat ALL the way if your body accepts it, I'm all about moderation in everything. :)

Whoot!Whoot!! That's amazing!! You moved 34 miles in a week with your feet!

Yes to whacking bread and cereal from your diet for now. A dear friend of mine is gluten intolerant. She tried 'gluten free' breads and such at first, then decided that they just weren't worth the time/cost. After several months, she says she didn't miss them in her diet.

Hope you're warming up a bit. We're in for hailstorms and maybe a tornado warning this afternoon.

In order to keep great shape you have to develop healthy eating habits. I’ve read somewhere that even if you attend gym every day but keep eating junk food – you are wasting your time. Lots of useful advices on proper nutrition I have found here They provide special tips for women and lots of motivative ideas!
