Thanks Rob. I have been asking myself that for the last few days. I have been eating cheat meals so it can not be that.
I have been planning in advance a weeks worth of meals. I watch the calories - some high days, some low days but all within a certain range. Before, I bet I was eating more than I realized.
Walking has been my only exercise because of my back - but losing weight while walking strikes me as odd as I was doing more exercise the previous months (like elliptical, aerobic classes, etc) and was not having much success.
I have been focusing on getting around 40g of fiber a day from food (no metamucil) - that probably helps a lot.
The thing that keeps running through my mind is that I have been taking Sunrider foods for just over 6 months now. I remember you telling me when I started that my body would probably take this new source of nutrition and use it to heal/feed my body in areas where it is really needed - that my body will probably not focus on burning fat right away. You said probably around the 6 month mark, my body would be able to focus on burning fat. (Rob, I am paraphrasing so if I got anything wrong, please feel free to correct me) So, what you said was right or it is quite the coincidence.
In the month of Jan, I stopped using the energy patches. I though it was possible that they were causing my heart burn (when I wore them on the shoulder position). So I just stopped using them period to see how I felt. My heart burn went away and I also started burning fat. Not sure if there is a connection. I think sometime in Feb I will start wearing them again on one of the other 3 positions and see how I feel.
