Fat Report

Scale says, "326, fatso."

Yup.  Still fat.  Still stuck.  I can only surmise that someone out there isn't praying hard enough!  I mean, it can't be MY fault.  ;-)

Sigh.

    Weightwatchers or something like that? Seems you can't do it on your own...

  2. I have hesitated writing in on this for a few weeks, but back when my husband was in school I supported us by working as a personal trainer. Weight loss is challenging, and many times it takes an individual approach and accountability to someone other than oneself to get started. I could send you some tips if you would like - just let me know; but again I really hesitate here because there are so many variables that need to be taken into consideration (and I am a little out of practice!). Either way, no worries. Take care, Shelly

    1. Shelly, I've done it all. . .name a program, a diet, a work out routine. . .done them all. I don't get enough exercise and I love to eat--bad stuff, good stuff, doesn't matter. I'm not gluttonous at all. . .most people would be surprised by how little I actually eat. It's a combo of bad genes, low exercise, high carb diet, and just plain ole bad habits.

  3. I know how it feels, Fr...after struggling for many years trying to lose weight I finally lost around 20 kg (44 lbs?) over a year and a half and have been keeping it for almost a year without any problem (at least based on a blood test) with this (although I used a slightly different recipe). I hadn't tried any other schematic diet before it, but I'm convinced it only worked when I delivered myself from the eating vice...and including gluttony in my confessions certainly helped.

  4. You're maintaining. Change something in your life style. Don't eat any carbs after 3:00 PM; is that doable?

    1. Not really. If I eat with the community--and I must--then I eat what's served. In Nawlins' that means heavy carbs. I can skip the breads, desserts, etc. but even the proteins are often cooked with breading, gravies, etc.

    2. That makes things tough, so we'll just have to get creative - to whom do I speak about changing the diet of the community? ;-) We need to keep all our wonderful Southern Dominican around as long as we can, right?

      General hints for everybody out there (losing weight or not): drink enough water, not juice, not sweetened tea/coffee - WATER (amazing what a difference this can make); get enough sleep; decrease your stress levels and laugh - laugh a lot!

  5. Sounds like you know your enemies;) may God give you fervor and grace to vanquish them! Ive been using your prayer before weighing any time I feel discouraged. My doctor insists humans aren't meant to eat grains. I'm finally trying to listen.

  6. After way too many years of a sedentary lifestyle, I ordered the Insanity workout DVDs and started exercising. I'm one month into the two-month program. I love it. I look forward to getting home from work everyday and doing that day's workout. I pray you can find something like this, Fr.
