Wow, what can I say. I have gained back the 10lbs I lost by one bad week. And when I say "bad" - I mean
BAD. Every single day was a giant binge. I CANNOT have ice cream in house - I will eat a whole container
in two days. Ridiculous! I like counting points and think ww is a good choice for me, but I also picked up
the "Rules For Normal Eating" and the "Food and Feelings Workbook" hoping those will give me some insight
into the real deep stuff behind all this self-sabatoge… Continue

What a week! I've managed to still go to WW meetings since the at work program quit. Only thing is that the meetings are in a church and it feels more like an AA meeting without the alcohol. I heard about how low-in-points this grilled KFC chicken is and I'm thinking about giving it a try. I imagine, like most "healthy" fast-food things, it is probably either really small or tastes bad. Ahhhh yes, and 4th of July is coming up. Not to get too political....BUT, it is funny how we don't call it… Continue

Okay, I'm not as discouraged as you would think I would be, considering what happened. I'm so ashamed to write it on here, but I'm forcing myself to stay accountable.
I ate 46 points today! And my daily target is 19! So I have 1 flex left for the week. It seems like this happens every week, and I'm used to it. So I will deal with it and get through the week like I always do using only activity points now. But last week on Tuesday I had my highest point day ever (in months) of 45… Continue

I have had a lot of challenges in the last week, my boss went off on me, had a quasi argument with my mom and got a very annoying, bordering on obnoxious email from my stepmom. I have been starting to feel like everyone in my life is throwing all kinds of harsh judgement on me which I would imagine means they are harshly judging themselves?
Anyway, despite the challenges, the one bright light is that I haven't turned to food like I used to. I have still felt in control and hadn't… Continue

The ups and downs of daily life continue. I've been in such a funk lately I don't know what has gotten into me. I suppose it's a number of factors including my anxiety of moving to a new state with no job and no savings (YIKES!) as well as the fact that I have just felt so alone in general, and I'm not usually a lonely person.
My WI this past friday didn't produce great results, I am the same as what I was last week, so I kept my 4lb loss from my first week, and I'm hoping to see… Continue

It's been a long time. I've been in such a funk and, in the past, that was when I wanted to write the most. But, this time...not so much.
Anyway, I'm back on track - mentally and physically. There has been a lot going on.
mentally - still not where I need/want to be.
physically - my calf is feeling great and I've been able to slowly start building up my running efforts again!
I didn't think the day would ever come when I would say that is a relief. I've… Continue

I am still thinking about putting my scale in a cupboard and only weighing in like once a month/two months. I don't know if I completely want to let go. But, I think I need to. And, I think I can. A scale may help some people. But it no longer helps me. It inhibits me.
I am confident that the way I am eating now is the right way.

Yesterday was a really lazy day. I didn't work out or basically do anything. I'm feeling a little more energetic today. We're headed for the grocery store. I need some low point chocolate and sweet treats. I've eaten all the good stuff. I've been staying on point and eating my fruits and veggies for the most part. My scale is still giving inconsistent numbers, so I'm not really sure if I've lost any.
I'm up to three doses of my new medicine. I had a slight headache this morning which… Continue

but it's got to stop.
I am starting to annoy myself, nevermind the people around me.
I complain about the following things:
I am tired
Such and such body part hurts
My hair sucks
I am hungry
I am sleepy
I have a headache
My nose hurts (allergies)
This is too jiggly
My pants don't fit
I didn't get anything done tonight.
I seem to have a lot of complaints, but there really is something I can do about most of… Continue

A year later and I'm still going strong trying to be healthy. Even though I've been at it more than a year, each day requires decision making and effort. It never gets easy, but it does become more of a habit.
Here's my one year comparison:
I've lost MANY inches off my waist, my hips, my thighs and my arms. My face is a bit thinner. I went from a size 18 to a size 14/16. I just started running, something I never thought possible. Instead of buying me dinner for my birthday… Continue

Are you kidding me!?! I did my best this week, ate good food and eliminated all fake sugar...and I gianed 1.4 pounds. I can't even begin to explain why! I used my flex and had alternating high/low days. I weighed everything, even things I normally don't. I feel like I am going to cry. I am fighting every thought in my head to just go out and binge. I know, I know this is not the right frame of mind to have and I won't be doing that. I just can't believe that this is my 26th week and I am now… Continue

I'm doing much better with the food today. I had a bowl of Special K for breakfast, the one with the yogurt & fruit...very yummy, yogurt for snack...lunch won't be as bad as yesterday, but not the best for me either, sandwich with some chips...snack will be tomatoes & fresh mozzarella balls...then dinner, ham, potatoes, broccoli...I WILL resist the crap!!! I am SO sick of this weight battle...I'm gonna do it...and I'm gonna succeed!!!

Here I was all woo hoo and lookie me back on track yesterday and the scale is UP 2.8 lbs overnight.
Yes yes i know the dangers of daily weighing. And I know that body weight fluctuates.
It certainly doesn't fit the patterns of past beginnings though .
Off to the gym I go.

We had a BBQ last night with my in-laws and I had a real burger :) It was so good! And tasty! But I am now out of flex for the week and I used almost all of my 17 AP's earned. Today my calves are really tight from my step class yesterday so I am not sure if a workout is in my future. I might be able to get some elliptical in later if I can escape from the house for a bit. Today's meals are planned, now the difficult part: actually sticking to the plan! LOL We are going out tonight, and I am… Continue

Did you think you'd just be able to NOT run or even workout for two months and then just be able to hop right back into it, right back at the level you were at? You were running a mile - good for you. But even that was a new thing. Give yourself a break -- you ran 75% of it before you stopped. That's progress. You were at the gym. You were making an effort.
It's going to take a little be longer to get back to that point - physically and mentally. Keep at it.

Well, the hardest part is over. I am officially finished with the first week. I went to my WW meeting this morning and I was down -3.6! I feel like that is a pretty good first week, so I am happy.
I still got to have a lot of fun and do the things that I want without feeling deprived or limited. I am ready for the fourth. My goal for next week is to be down 2 lbs or at least 1.8. My meeting is having a fourth of July challenge and I want to be below 190 by the next weigh in. I know… Continue

and it's only 7:45. It's that kind of morning, I spose!
Being a student leaves me in want of coffee roughly 18 hours a day. If I could find a way to hook it to my veins while sleeping, I bet I'd do it. I've made a rule with myself that I have to have a cup of water between coffee, so hence the double fisting this morning. It also makes me less jittery. Nice, huh? If that's not an anti-coffee advertisement, I don't know what is. It just tastes so good!
Camping was so much… Continue
