Sharing My Healthy Weight Loss Journey

I posted a Facebook update the other day, and the response was overwhelming on both my personal page and in the 90 Day Challenge Group that I belong to.  I received many many comments, likes, and personal messages requesting me to start sharing more of what I am doing to achieve such a weight loss.

First, I am very thankful for all of the support you guys are awesome!

It is hard for me to post updates such as these because it is hard to admit that I had totally given up on myself and my health.  I was literally dying a slow death by potato chips and crap food!

I am grateful that I am able to help and inspire others to take a closer look at their own eating and maybe inspire you to join me in my quest for health.

I will try my best to show you what I am doing, what I eat and what I snack on.  But I have to say from the beginning that I am doing this with my doctors blessing and that he is well aware of eating plan.  I AM NOT a doctor or health professional, so I encourage everyone to check in with your own doc for medical health questions.

If you want to read the posts I have done up to this point, simply go to the search bar and type in healthy weight loss:

These updates are going to be quick and to the point, sharing tips and ideas, recipes that I use, ways that I save time and always have proper food choices available.  I would LOVE LOVE to get discussions started on what you are doing and recipes that you have found as well.  Your feedback keeps me going!!  🙂  Comments, Likes and shares would also be very much appreciated.

Healthy Weight Loss

I started my journey back on August 3rd, 2015.  I didn’t think that this would work, I didn’t think that I would be able to stick to it (not because I’m a quitter, but because losing weight is most often difficult).  From that day to this, I have lost 94.7 pounds.

The only thing that I really watch is my “Net Carb” intake.  Net Carbs are Carbs less Fibre.  It does require reading labels (in the beginning) and recording because there are a lot of hidden carbs.  Especially in prepared foods.

I record everything in Myfitnesspal.com (and will explain more about that in an upcoming post).  I keep my net carbs under 20 a day, and I try to keep my Healthy fat intake above 70% of my intake.  The reason for this is because fat is an excellent source of fuel and it burns much more evenly than using carbs and sugar.

Carbs and sugars produce spikes in your blood sugar which is very very bad!!!!

More to come very shortly, including sharing my daily food diaries.  Please don’t be afraid to ask questions and let me know exactly the kind of information you are looking for.  This will help me post the most value for you.

Enjoy your Sunday!

 

Talk soon,

Heather

What Can I do to Help YOU ?!

Welcome to AHWH :) I am a mid-forties small business women who is just entering into that second phase of life. The phase where all my kids have almost moved on to their next adventure, and now I am looking at the question "What do I Want to be When They Grow Up?!" AHWH is about sharing that with you. The beginning stages of being an Empty Nester, what I want that to look like and making it up as I go. My hope is that I can share some fun stuff with you, and get to know you through this blog and social media.
