If I were to describe me, I would say that I am a caring, cheerful upbeat person who is always looking to be relaxing and enjoying life! I am a happy person with a lot going good in my life. I have strong opinions, morals and values and I will always fight for what I feel is right! I look after my loved ones better than I look after myself at times. I am in a long term relationship with a wonderful man that I feel is finally "the one". I did kiss a few frogs before I found my prince which has definitely been the most postive thing in my life to date ;) Just over a year ago we took the plunge and moved 30 minutes out of the big city to a brand new house at the lake which boasts a spectacular lake view! This was always a very big dream of mine and I have been blessed to be actually living it with the one I love! We very much enjoy boating and snowmobiling and being outdoors and have spent much of this summer landscaping and building our decks and garage all ourselves!. I am 34 and 5'4" tall. I am currently riding another wave of weight loss. I was close to 184 lbs and took off 32 lbs by the end of April 2012. I am currently trying to take another 20lbs off and will try harder this time to fit some weights and cardio into my life on a more regular basis. I love to run and have many valley hills to challenge myself right outside my back door that I know I should take advantage of! I am also going to start back with Zumba later on and get moving to that latin music!

Trying to figure out how to make Chobani's yogurt taste better.
I always use plain 0% Greek yogurt of any brand. I like to add in some almond butter, dark chocolate or french vanilla stevia drops, flax, hemp or chia seed, berries and cinnamon. Makes it a decadent but healthy treat!

Help with not being hungry, what's that all about?!?!
I definitely think that sufficient protein helps with hunger. In my experience ( and I used to be a snacky carb junkie), I would never feel like I have had enough. Now that I focus on protein in my diet to maintain my new weight I believe it works for me. I do not feel the desire to snack anymore to satisfy hunger. I have a goal to eat enough calories and to eat enough protein every day, but I don't focus too much on the percentages or numbers. I am always satisfied and no longer have those "gotta eat" moments. The days I don't eat as much protein I can totally tell that I am constantly looking for food more, but because I know this is happening, I reach for the protein and soon the hunger passes. I still enjoy treats and sweets I just don't have them all the time anymore!

hunger makes me fail in dieting
I agree with all of the advice given. What I have also learned is that when you sometimes feel hungry, it can be because your body isn't hydrated properly. You think you need to eat to fix that hunger feeling, when really your body is starving for water. Drink lots of water throughout the day and that also may curb the hunger feelings you are having.

Fiber Intake

I added chia seeds (like flax seeds, but no grinding necessary!). 1 tbs = 5g fat, 5g fiber, 5g carb + tons of omega 3s. Occasionally, I'll do a Hemp Fiber Pro protein shake -- 14g carb, 14g fiber. But that's not the most appetizing so I only use it when I know I haven't been getting enough from veggies.


Chia seeds & Hemp seeds are great additions for extra fiber. Chia seeds are tasteless so take on the flavors of what you are mixing it with and you can mix them in just about anything! Check out www.superseeds.ca which is a great informative site about Chia Seeds and their benefits. Hemp seeds taste really nutty to me and they work well in yogurts, on salads, etc.

Zumba
When I did Zumba, I used a Mio fitness watch, which tracks your heart rate and calculates the calories burned during the exercise. Now the watch was calibrated to my particular weight and resting heart rate and Zumba class was always around an hour long. My watch always read between 550 - 750 calories in that time. The higher burned calorie rate always was when I was in the Zumba Toning class. I would put the Zumba under fast dancing, but basically you could be burning more calories than "Fast dancing" would give you credit for.
