Slight Slip

I've continued to do great this week ... since Saturday.  With the exception of last night's dinner.

My husband went out of town today and will not be back until next Monday.  So we decided to go out to dinner.  We choose Outback because they are having an $11.99 dinner deal and I can make pretty clean choices.  Steak and a Naked Sweet Potato. Only, he decided to order the Chicken & Artichoke Flat Bread appetizer and then the meal came with a choice of dessert.  So guess what.  I…

Almost May

Almost May? Where is this year going? I've been eating well. I've kept a food journal so I can show it to my Dr next Friday. She advocates a Paleo diet & I seem to gravitate toward a wholesome, vegetarian/vegan diet as the ones designed by Neal Barnard, Joel Fuhrman and John McDougall.  I plan to show the Dr my eating plan and see what she thinks. I definitely want to stop eating foods that are processed and I have really done well…

Hangry (hungry, angry)

I'm at the point where I'm not sure if I'm hungry or feel sick but the thought of food is turning my stomach.

I'm down 2 lbs this week

That's 4 lbs since I started not even 2 weeks ago!  I'm glad that the first couple weeks have been successful!  I checked my fat % on the scale today and it's not pretty.  But I guess I need to know where it is to track where it ends up. 

My Mom got to go home on Sunday.  She's feeling good and she sounds great! 

Saturday was crazy I had to work in the office then stop home eat really quick pack more food and go to the inn.  Sunday was a marathon grocery shopping day and food…

10 minutes--I swear--that's ALL!

So amazing how the computer can suck away all those minutes...

I live right by a high school, so I don't like to head out the door until the big morning rush is over.  Too many distracted drivers, lolly-gagging teens taking up the whole side walk, effort on my part to prevent my dog from either scaring someone, stealing someone's breakfast or just inappropriately sniffing.  However, I am still in my pj's--so I do need to get ready for my morning run.

For those…

Wish loosing weight was as easy gaining it

So it has been two weeks so far and overall I think I am doing pretty well.  I have not lost any more weight since last week (my scale is on my shit list). I have lost inches though and my stomach went down.  I just hope muscle weighs more than fat. This week was crazy but somehow I managed to get my workouts in. Most days I would really want to skip the whole thing.

Anyway with taking my mom to the Drs and running errands having time/energy to cook dinner has not been easy. A lot has…

The Scale... not my friend lately.  I think I have some suspicions why it is defeating me, but clearly it is upsetting.  I weighed in (at home) on Saturday and was up 1.8.  I still managed to go to the WW meeting, but I didn't want to get on their scale.  Mentally I couldn't deal with someone else telling me I was up.  I knew that I was.  This morning I weighed myself again and I was up even more.  I don't get it.  I have been very active over the last few weeks.  Eating decently.  I even made…

Taking Stock

After reading some recent posts, I realize it is time to get real. I need to work on this once and for all. Not think about doing it. Do it. I got a great idea from Shannon. Keep a gratitude journal. I've been writing 3 positives each day. Well, most work days. I re-read it too. It reminds me how lucky I am and how good my life is. Sometimes I just get stuck in the "weight" issue I miss everything else. Another great idea came from LindaB. I've…

OK Ladies, first of all, I'd like to apologize for the personal blog fest that is happening all up in here.  BUT, I am just so DANG excited with my new found freedom!  I am feeling it girls, I really am!!!  So, I hope you don't get too sick of me.  I promise, that I will slow it down as I get going.  But for right now, I hope that you can tolerate me a little longer until I settle into a good routine.  Maybe we will all energize each other!

I checked another thing off my "short" list…

Where am I today?

So after my morning reality check yesterday, here is where I stand today.

  • Check.  Update my new weight on MVP.  Whether I like it or not.  It doesn't have to stay there.  But its real.
    • I put my new weight in and admitted my…

My Mom is in the hospital

So the short of it is the new doctor (the psychiatrist that I found for her and is helping change her meds around and she had been feeling a lot better) found her to be severely anemic through the blood work that he ordered.  He had emailed me the results while I was away with a note that she should see her PCP.  I asked my Dad a few times if he heard from PCP.  He said no.  I told him to call after a few days of him not getting to it, I called.  I confirmed that the got the results and made…

New Beginnings

I'm hoping this time I do it, I don't give up or quit. I'm a yoyo I do amazing for short periods of time then ultimately always stop for one reason or another. I'm 253 lbs and 5'5 depressing to say and i'm only 23. I have given up any flour based food because obviously i cant control my eating habits with them I am a bread fanatic pasta whatever so i said goodbye to it about 2 weeks ago. I have my craving but it hasn't been that bad I've replaced it with a lot of rice products like gluten…

Honest Engine

When you think that what you post or what you have to share doesn't mean anything.  Think again.  Our words ...your words... DO have influence over the lives of others.  Whether we see it or not, we can effect the people who brush across our path either positively or negatively.  And let me tell you, I have been inspired by everyone's honesty here lately.  So much so, that it has made me take stock in where I am.  Like really…

Progress, vericose vein update and stuff

Less than a week after getting back from our cruise vacation and I've already lost the 2 lbs that I put on while we were away!  That's great news and great motivation to get rid of the rest that accumulated over the last 3 months!

Leg day yesterday was awesome it felt good and I'm a little sore today but not as bad as I anticipated.Today is abs and shoulders and I'm going to do it as soon as I'm done posting!  It's funny I haven't worked abs yet but they have been sore as I've been…

Alive and kicking



So I haven’t left the country or the internet. I have been swamped at work and getting ready for my surgical procedure and then some leave.

In the past week I have been starting to use the “SHealth” app on my Samsung mobile.  The aim was that I steadily increased my walks. The first few days I added a 1.5km walk every night.  On the weekend I did a 7km walk.  I decided that since I’m due for surgery in 4 days I will rather stay out of the gym and be outside…

Waiting is not living

I've been feeling kind of down. This weight I want to lose and keep off is driving me crazy. I know it is due to age & perhaps hypothyroidism. It is a long road to recovery as my Dr has explained to me and advised I should not get so discouraged. I just want to get there and move on. I keep waiting. I'll buy new clothes once I lose the weight, I'll go to the beach once I lose weight, the list goes on but then I read somewhere to remember…

how to not let emotional eating take over

I have just been so overwhelmed for so long with everything I just can't seem to get back on track.

Its so depressing and stressful taking care of my husband while going thru cancer. Just seems so unfair that people have to go through this. While at this time he feels good helps alot and we try to not think of it but he has been doing weekly treatments since November so it's something that is always there on our minds.

How is a person supposed to be a wife, mom, caregiver etc…

It's time to revisit my patterns...

Okay so I've been a member here for years now I've been battling my weight since after the birth of my first daughter and she is 16.  I have lost down to the 130 range on a few occasions and fairly quickly gained some or all of the weight back.  Every time I think it's different and that I've learned more and that it won't happen again, until it does.  So here I am up about 15 lbs from where I was in January! I'm disgusted how fast I gained but, I'm glad I didn't go back to square one.  I…
