Going back to Plant based eating

Going back to Plant based eating

I made a decision last week to go back to eating more plant based/vegan. It has nothing to do with diet in a losing weight idea. I think I’ve given up on that concept because nothing works for me anymore. I need to accept my body for where it is today. I canceled my weight watchers membership. I’ve noticed over time myl eating has changed to incorporate a lot of processed foods again. Things that were easy points on weight…

Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Intermittent Fasting 18 months later

Sometimes I’m amazed when I look at my stats to see which blogs are still popular getting consistent hits. Like this one on Intermittent Fasting two months later https://multipleexperiences.org/2018/08/31/intermittent-fasting-2-months-later/. This blog was written in August of 2018. However it wasn’t the popularity of the blog that struck me it was the date I wrote the blog because I STILL EAT THIS WAY!!!! Wow that’s along time and this blog was written two months later. I actually started eating the intermittent…

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Once again joined WW, formally known as weight watchers

Wow I can’t believe in 10 days another year begins. 2020!! I guess it has to be easier than writing 2019. I do better with even numbers and even better when my 22 is in a number I’m writing. New Years resolutions, I don’t do them because I don’t need a specific day of the year to start something to make a change of habit. If I want something to change it isn’t the date that is going to make…

Weighted down

Weighted down

I almost signed up for Nutrisystem yesterday. Luckily my mom called and I asked her what she thought before I push the button to purchase. She talked me out of it and she made extremely good sense as to why it was pointless. Purchasing pre-portioned, vacuum sealed, preservative induced foods against what I eat normally was extremely dumb.  I eat fresh foods. I make meals from scratch. I don’t eat anything that has been processed. I read labels all…

Beautiful despite weight

Beautiful despite weight

I am out of the house early today. Sitting at my primary doctor’s office for my annual physical. Nothing exciting but I did bring up my ever nagging issue of weight. As expected I was up weight from the previous year. No matter what I do, I am always up weight. It has been extremely frustrating. I worked so hard taking weight off and maintaining that loss for years. I still work so hard to exercise to the best of…

Goodbye Scale

Goodbye Scale

Today is the first day I’m going out in a week. Between my stomach issues and the excessive heat I’ve been home bound. I can’t even complain about it because I felt terrible for a good portion of those days. I was happy to have my family support and the unconditional love of my dogs. My weight shot back up, everything I lost over the last month is back plus a pound or two. I spoke to both neurologists and…

The weight of MSi

The weight of MSi

I feel a little down since my neurologist appointment the other day. I haven’t shaken it off. I’m not down about having MS, I’m down about MS causing me to gain weight. Between the medicine, my age and lack of physical ability I can’t control my weight and I am very sad. I spent my entire life battling my weight. I was always up and down on the scale since I was a teenager. I’ve read about and tried every…

Intermittent fasting 5:2

Intermittent fasting 5:2

I didn’t want to write this yet but it is a success story that I need to share. I’ve been doing intermittent fasting for over a year. I was doing a 16:8 fast. This is where you fast for 16 hours and eat during a window of 8 hours. For me that window of eating was 11-7. I was never a big breakfast eater so it worked well for me although I wasn’t really losing weight from it despite my…

Intermittent fasting 5:2

Intermittent fasting 5:2

I’ve been doing intermittent fasting at a 16:8 schedule for over a year now. What does that mean? It means I eat between in an 8 hour time frame and fast for a 16 hour time frame. For me I ate between the hours of 11-7. The rest of the time I ate nothing and consumed only water. I finished the book the obesity code The Obesity Code this weekend. I must say I learned something new about dieting from…

The Obesity Code

The Obesity Code

After my upsetting week last week following weight watchers I choose to see my weight differently. I asked the universe for help. I immediately got to my life coach but then I got an email from my cousin. It was actually her second email regarding a book called . My cousin’s first email was explaining about the book before she knew I was struggling. The second email was following my blog post where she was more insistent that I read…
