I used to be more of an exercise person. I used to exercise about three hours a day (school and and junior college). Intense workouts, including stair climbing (30 floors!). Then it all stopped as I got closer to graduation (Bachelor's) because I had to focus on career. So sportsperson to career person, not exercising took a toll on me. Then I tried the Atkins diet for a few years. Worked in the beginning, but affected my health. So, I went off the diet; this added with the stress of life, including a major break up (almost was going to marry the person) led me to give up on myself. Host of bad habits and late nights later I got a health condition that caused insulin sensitivity! This led to a weight gain of 20 kgs or 44 pounds in just one year :(. I couldn't even bear to see snaps of myself. Then I had a sudden spike to pull myself together. After much prayer and seeking, and a small surgery, I decided this is it! Went back to gymimg and dieting (just cutting sugar, white flour and oily stuff). With super dedication lost 7 kgs in 3 months. Then, I had a spinal injury. There is probably an enemy of my diet and health around! So bed rest and inability to move, I just couldn't continue exercise. My only hope - a good diet! I could not even sit up without the support of a cervical belt. I managed to maintain my weight, which I celebrate to this day. A year later, I began walking one or two flights of stairs and some walking without the belt. I knew I needed more, so I began to research. I figured its all about calorie intake and metabolism. I was wondering what's the most convenient way to maintain a journal? A Google search or two and I found FATSECRET! Started slow last year and managed great results. Then the cares of life took me away. After much struggle, I decided to stick to this. So this year, I finally plan to stick no matter what. It has not been easy and have had an allergy attack. However, even with steroids I am losing weight.

Alkaline Water
Hi all, first of I am not going to read the replies to my post because I am not interested in starting wars or arguments. To answer questions on how to alkalize your water without expensive systems, the answer is the the age-old ACV and lemon water. Yes, they do contain acids, but the end products after the digestion of these two have an alkalizing effect on the body. This alkalizing effect promotes a healthier body and metabolism. Metabolism is the key to weight loss. Most of us have sluggish metabolism, which could get worse due to dieting and we could hit the well-known weight plateau. Alkalizing your body can assist you with that. Note: It aids weight loss and promotes health, but is no magic trick, you have to diet and exercise. Peace and God bless you all
