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.

Results of My Seventh Month on CALP

October 3rd was weigh in and measurement day but I postponed it until October 4th. I really enjoy getting my results once a month but had to be somewhere at a certain time and did not have enough time to get it done.

I am very pleased with my results and absolutely love CALP for allowing me to regain complete control over when and how I eat. The other day my Dad actually commented on my weight loss and that had me feeling pretty good about myself.

Every time my husband hugs me, which is constantly, he tells me how much I am shrinking and how beautiful I am. He has always been loving and affectionate and continues to do a wonderful job of building my confidence. Click here to continue reading, or leave a comment »

One Hour Reward Meal (RM) & Overeating

I mentioned that I am on a few support groups and have read recently how easy it is for some people to eat as much as they can for the entire hour. It is impossible for me to do that since the most important part of my RM is balance. When it is time for my RM, I begin with my salad and then eat my veggies, protein, and carbs. I do not overeat, but definitely eat until I am satisfied. It is not unusual for me to be done eating within a half an hour and I have no desire to eat anymore.

My mentality has never been to eat as much as I can. Before beginning CALP this time, I would begin my day with my trigger foods without realizing they were the reason I would lose control over my choices, frequency, or amounts in which I would want to eat.
