    Hi My name is Sherri 60 year old and live in BC

    I'm back. I really need to get back on track. I didn't lose anything the last challenge as I wasn't tracking my food and eating way too many carbs. I find my body doesn't like digesting carbs(especially bread) and just holds on to it. I gain almost everytime I eat bread. Going to have to come up with a solution for bread as it is any easy and quick food to grab when I'm hungry or in a hurry.

    Start of new contest
    1) Track food at least 5 days a week - did 4 days
    2) Drink more water, 5 glasses a day - average 3 a day
    3) Get out for a walk 4 days a week if can't get out exercise at home. Yoga, Weights or Strength training - only got out 3 times going ton have to work on this. We have Snow and it's hard yo get out so will have to make up a home exercise plan
    4) Lose 5lbs a month

    Nov.1 191.2
    Nov.8 190

    Hi Sherri,
    Welcome aboard!
    You can do this and we are here to cheer you on!
    I hope you find a fitness plan that works during snowy weather.
    I would encourage you to google nutrients craving chart. I think bread craving signifies a nutrient deficiency. Maybe you can find other foods in that nutrient category that work better for you.
    I encourage you to focus on adequate protein and fiber intake daily and your water intake. Those two categories I mentioned will keep you feeling full.
    Best wishes to reaching your goals 😊

    SW: 234.7
    CW: 232.5
    GW: 219.9

    Nov. 3--234.7
    Nov. 10--232.5 (-2.2)

    I know a lot of this weight is water weight, but it feels good to see a drop on the scale. This week is the first time in a long time that I feel more in control of my eating. My NSV is that I kept my stress eating down to 1 evening this week.

    Congrats on your success 🙌🏻
