Results of my Eighteenth Month on CALP

I am happy that I am not a part of any weight loss contest because I would definitely lose. Others have said that because I am losing my weight at a slow, steady pace, that it will be easier to keep it off. Personally, I don't expect to have any problems keeping it off because I am not having any problems taking it off. I have found a way that I enjoy eating and I have never lost control of myself since I began following CALP.

Results of my Seventeenth Month on CALP

It is already the end of September and I have not updated my results in a couple of months. Since my Sixteenth month was in June, I still have July and August to catch up with. I may not have been updating my monthly results but I have been keeping up with my way of eating. I made sure to weigh and measure myself at the beginning of each month and will be including those statistics at the end of each post. I feel it is important for me to keep up with my daily menus and I do try and make sure to get them published on a daily basis.

I am still happy following this way of eating. It is still hard to believe how following the guidelines of the program continues to remain easy for me. I still have a sweet tooth but the difference is that I am now in control of it.

Results of My Sixteenth Month on CALP

Grandma lost her fight with cancer on June 17th. I arrived at my folks house on June 10th and didn't make it back home until June 20th. I am happy that I was with her when she passed, and I would not have had it any other way.

I am still following my weight loss program and it is now obvious to others. I have lost at least fifty pounds by following CALP and am extremely happy that I made sure to include exercise as a part of my program. Right from the beginning I made the decision to not allow any excuse to keep me from following the guidelines of CALP. I have been true to my exercise program as well, and really love the muscle that I am building.

Results of My Fifteenth Month on CALP

I am having a hard time believing I have been following my program as long as I have. The best part about it is that it continues to be easy for me! I do not like feeling as if I can not control myself, and I can honestly say that I am in my comfort zone.

My trips to my folks house increased this month. Grandma ended up having a lot more bad days than good ones. My sister and I made ourselves a new schedule so one of us would always be there. One of us would spend seven days at our folks house and the other one would come back the following week. Grandma ended up losing her ability to get up on her own or stand on her feet. It was a very difficult time because grandma did not want to lose her freedom to do things on her own, but she was given no choice.

Results of My Thirteenth Month on CALP

I am happy with my plan the way I have been doing it the past year. I am going to continue to eat my two meals a day because it works really well for me. If I get hungry for a third meal, I will eat it too. The only way I can make this program a life long plan, is to enjoy it!!!

I am a little frustrated because I have been following my program, but the scale is up again this week. The last month or so I have increased the amount of salad that I have been eating and have also increased the amount of salad dressing too. I never thought I could eat too much salad, but maybe I am. I have decided to go back to my 2 cups and see what happens with the scale.

Results of My Twelfth Month on CALP

I have officially followed CALP for a full year and still have no complaints!

I ended up going to town to get some things done and while I was there I decided to do a little shopping. I noticed my jeans were not fitting as well as they used to, so I decided to try on a smaller size. I was very pleased to get into a size 12P since it has been a very long time since I have been able to fit into that size. I ended up buying two pair of jeans, one black and one blue. The last time I bought my 14P, I only bought two pair and they have worked out just fine.

Results of My Eleventh Month on CALP

February 2nd was weigh in and measurement day for me. Beginning the first day of the year, I began a weight loss challenge on one of my support groups. One of the rules of this challenge is to weigh ourselves once a week and reporting in on Mondays. Since I have been following that rule, I am aware of my weight on a weekly basis now.

Warning: Daylight Savings Time May Be Harmful to Your Health

I've always had this nagging suspicion that daylight savings time might be responsible for a variety of deleterious health effects -- including things like increases in traffic accidents and other operator-related incidents -- so it came as no surprise when I read the following news blurb:

When researchers in Sweden examined the impact of daylight saving time on heart attack rates in that country, they discovered that people had slightly fewer heart attacks on the Monday after they set their clocks back in the fall and slightly more heart attacks in the days after they set their clocks ahead in the spring.

They presented their findings in a letter published in the Oct. 30 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine.
