Day 82

Think I'm coming down with something. I feel quite achey fluey. Uggghhh!!! Still I am on track with my food plan. I have been doing it for 11 days now and can feel my clothes loosing up which is always a good sign. I have not weighed since the 27th November. As many of you know I hate the scales, preferring to read other signs of weight loss or gain. With GSA I need to weigh once a month though and so I will be weighing on the 27th February come what may.

I was commenting on Tully's blog earlier that no matter what food plan I choose, the key for me is consistency and that is just what I keep tripping on each time.

One of the reasons, I've gone back to doing GSA isn't because I believe in their food plan exclusively (I think that as long as we eat less and exercise more we're bound to lose weight no matter what food plan we choose) rather it's because of the support it provides in staying the course. I know from past experience that only by consistently sticking to my food plan and exercise schedule will I achieve my goals of losing weight consistently and keeping my body in good health. Just for today, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to help me reach my goals.

1 apple
180 g yogurt
30g soy grains
1/2 liter H2O

120 g tofu
120 g beetroot
240 g salad
1 tbls dressing

120 g tofu
240 g beans
360 g salad
1 tbls butter
2 tbls dressing


  1. Consistancy IS key. It won't work if you only follow your plan a couple of days a week. In an odd way, my diagnosis has kept me on the straight and narrow. I have to test my blood sugar, take certain medicines with food, and exercise to keep the sugar down. It's showing!!! In the 2 1/2 weeks since I had to make this change, I've lost 8 pounds! Because I HAVE to be consistant.

    Somehow, voluntary consistancy is much harder. Guess I needed a swift kick to the rear end to make me do it. I hope you can do it without such a dramatic reason!

  2. Consistency is the key unless you are consistently inconsistent as I tend to be.

    It is hard to get really focused. Try and think of a way or a word or a thought that will help you stay focused.

  3. You hit the nail on the head with the words "Just for today" ... that my friend is the key to consistency!

  4. You are 100% right and as Lyn said "hit the nail on the head".
    ANY diet will work if we are consistant, I always think of that after I've just tried (and failed) on the latest new diet craze. I'm the same as Ironside - the only thing I'm consistant with is inconsistency.
