Eating like a crazy person

If my goal was to gain weight, then my eating would be just perfect.  Unfortunately, I'm obese. 

I have been eating almost nonstop for 2 days.  pizza, ice cream, french fries, chicken strips, chips, cheese, soda, candy, pie.  Salt and sugar in ridiculous amounts to the point that I got sick.  I was sick to my stomach and had a major headache.  And then I kept eating. 

oh, megan, what are you doing?

My plan was to get back on track tomorrow with a morning run.  But no, I…

Busy Week!

Well last Saturday I weighed in at 242.2 lbs. I had such a busy week. I did training for a new job that will be full time and pay twice what Im making now. My hubby has changed to 12 hour shifts and until our car loan goes thru were stuck with one car. So everythings been hard. With all this then I found out today at my daughters 2 month check up that she is failure to thrive. They put her on a medicine…

46 or so days left! Then it's baby time.

I've been thinking of BTL so much this week!  Mostly b/c I've been cooking and using all my old recipes.  My hubby and I have completed the fast food circle (ate at all the greasy restaurants you can think off) and were actually missing my cooking.  I know, *GASP*.


I've been cooking both breakfast and supper.  Sometimes dinner, but that's usually just reheating what we had earlier.  Breakfast is usually eggs, sausage (not my choice) and fruit w/whole wheat toast.  It's not…

Moving along...

Today was a good day. I was still challenged with my snacking but I ate healthy the rest of the day.  I had some white chicken chili in the freezer that I took out and had a lunch. It was such a gorgeous day that I took a short walk during lunch and ran a few errands.


I feel good about my week so far. I went to the gym on the after work. I almost didn't because I was tired and my stomach was bothering me a bit but I went.  I spent about 12 mins on the Precor AMT machine ( I…

Having a hard time motivating myself this week

This seems like the same story week after week, doesn't it? It's getting kind of old, isn't it? I want to be here, but I don't feel like I have anything positive to write or to contribute. We're coming into a long, holiday weekend and I'm not even that excited for it. We're going to have nice weather and I plan to be outside as much as possible, but other than that I'm not even sure what I'm going to do. I think the fact that I'm down and having trouble motivating myself to exercise is the…

The new month is almost here (1359)

Today turned out to be a great day after all. I did have some fat free pretzels after lunch and though oh no, but it did not lead to a crash & burn. I was hungry after eating what was in the lunch bag and thought at least I have a low fat/low calorie item to snack on. I don't normally do that. I guess this health thing is finally becoming habit. After I thought about it, I wrote down some of the positive changes I've made since last year. It surprised me.


1. Water. That…

Week 26 - 6 Month In - I need your help and suggestions..?

Stats: 260 lbs - 90 lbs lost (1 lb lost this week)


It's official...I have changed my eating & exercise habits.  


For the last 6 months I have tried to improve my lifestyle with a good balanced diet and moderate exercise program.  While I plan to keep this up for the rest of my life, I have found the last 2 weeks to be a bit challenging.  I missed some cardio & strength training exercise days lately and have been a bit unbridled when a poor meal choice…

Blimey what a response =) – Day two

I logged on to this page expecting to have no replies what so ever, but no chance. =)

Thank you so much for your warm welcome, it really meant a lot.




Had a quite good day today, food wise. Was in a mood for something sweet after dinner but instead of having some chocolate pudding I had some purred mango mixed with sour cream and yoghurt. I’m really proud of that. =) It is a lovely dessert.



I’m curious; how often do you have…

Finally getting a treadmill

I am practically jumping up and down today because tomorrow I will finally be getting a treadmill!  I've been trying to get one for quite some time now and have found a very nice one at a good price.  A friend bought a house from an elderly couple and they had purchased the treadmill right before they sold the house and never stepped on it once, so it is practically brand new.  Yay!  Since the weather has been unbearable here in Virginia lately I haven't been able to get in as much walking…

Beans beans they're good for your heart...

the more you eat the more you...yeah.

We have so many dried beans! Gallons of them we bought in bulk! So, they are in many of our recipes--usually the same kind of bean for many days. It's easier to make a batch and then use it for several recipes.

I had strange stomach cramps yesterday at dinner. I don't know if that was because of the massive bean consumption or what. Anyway, here's my food...

Pre-run: Peanut Butter Energy Bites

Post-run: Toast with Jam (must…

Today: On Plan

I have to stick to a plan today if I want to get things done before I leave.  Tomorrow my SIL and MIL and I are going to a water park (to take my niece) and spending the night there for the weekend.  So I need to get some things together before we leave tomorrow morning.  I love summer's fun busy-ness but with fun is work!  You know what I just thought about?  I'm not even feeling uneasy about the fact that I'm going to a water park.  I'm not nervous about being in a bathing suit there.  Not…

WI Day!!! Week 3.

Well I am sooooo happy to report that I lost 2.4lbs this week!  I wasn't expecting much since I had to deal with TOM this week.  My first goal is getting closer and getting here much faster than I expected.  I am eating all my points everyday but I am not eating them in junk and empty calories.  I try and make sure that I eat lots of fruit, veggies, dairy, and lean meats.  Last time I did WW (2004) I didn't lose weight this quickly BUT I ate alot of processed foods and hardly any veggies.  I…

Closing a Book

This is a post I wrote on

I wanted to share it here with you all!


It is a bittersweet day for me.  I am struggling more than I thought I would as Molly gets older.  She is leaving a school where we all felt like a family.  I had full trust in the staff and knew every day she was safe and cared about.  Part of my struggle is that she is going to a new school.  My safety net is being taken away.  It…

So yesterday started off really good, I woke up super early and walked two miles then had oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, packed lunch and dinner for work. At work I had a big cancellation which I was happy about bc I was able to run errands then and not at 7:30 at night! I manage to not eat out for lunch and ate what I packed. then I finish my other dogs suuuper early and call my last dog to come in and I get out an hour earlier. So I'm not sure why I decided to order a pizza for dinner?…

Wishful Wednesday (1601)

I did rally well with eating, but I was still hungry after lunch so I did eat some fat free pretzels. The salt is so addictive. I would not have done this if I had not been so hungry. The extra calories seem to help me kick it while doing my Power 90 Sweat DVD. I made bean surprise for dinner so I know what lunch will be tomorrow & Friday. One of the advantages of leftovers. I just realized I have a 3 day weekend. Now I can hardly wait for Friday to come.

TBDS Ch. 2 What Really Makes You Eat

Wed. June 29, 2011

Your eating is not automatic!  You decide to eat consciously.  You can learn how to take control over your eating decisions.-  Dr. Beck

The Thought Comes First

You always consciously think before eating.  I really want to eat that…It won’t matter if I take one.  These are sabotaging, unhelpful thoughts.  You need to learn to counteract these…
