Hello from South Jersey! Originally from Florida, I have made my way up the coast living in NC for awhile and finally made my forever home in Jersey. I'm a 30 something year old ;) with much to loose so that I may gain much back. I am truly blessed to have a wonderful and encouraging husband to help cheer me on through this process. We have three children. A daughter and two sons whom love to run around outside...I would love to be able to keep up with them. I have started a personal journey and with the Lord at my side I am sure to be successful.

May God Bless you in your own personal journey!

I just commented on your journal note before I looked at your diet calendar...after seeing what you have been eating, I can give you a few options...Eat more protein! Lots of protein, lots of veggies and lots of Water. The protein will keep you full longer. But you need to eat more often. Have breakfast (egg whites, smoothie, or oatmeal), a snack (fruit or veggie), Lunch (again with the protein), another snack (veggie or protein) and then dinner (again with the protein). And if you eat early enough you can still have another snack. But keep in mind, it's the sugar you want to stay away from. It sounds like you are eating all day, but it WORKS!

any night shift workers out there??
I work from 8pm to 4am (only part time tho) and I do find that it's hard not to eat during the night and still exercise the next day when I am exhausted. I used to eat all night to keep myself awake, and I'm sure that is what has caused some of my weight issues. So what I have been doing recently is bringing either a protein snack (egg or baked/broiled chicken strips) or a low carb granola bar and a cup of fresh fruit. This will carry me through the night, with LOTS of water of-course. Saturday and Sundays are really hard for me...to stay awake and motivated to move...But Saturday morning I get up early (because my 4 year old doesn't let me sleep in) and I push through my workout, and Sundays are my 7th day away, so I do not have to do a workout. So far it's been working. (I'm currently at 19 pounds down since 2/14/11) I just keep telling myself "if I don't do this (exercise or eat right), how am I going to feel tomorrow when I step on the scale?" Hope this helps. Best of Luck!

I started taking it a few months back, and I went through the bottle just because I had it, but it honestly didn't do too much for my energy. I will say though...I now take Vitamin D and that is a huge help. I currently take a multivitamin, echinacea, vitamin C and vitamin D. The multi is because my doctor keeps recommending it, the echinacea is because it helps fight off the colds (which I know the studies dis agree, but since I haven't had a cold all winter and neither has any of my loved ones in the house, I will continue taking it). Same thing for vit. c and then the vitamin D is for the sunshine affect! Gotta love it and doctors are loving it too.

Good Luck.

Reading has been a huge success for me. Not just novels but educational books as well. That way you mind is really focused on something else. Oh, and the mint chocolate chip gum is awesome! Good Luck to everyone Smile
