Rosh Hashannah time - I took a personal day. I was in a crap mood all day and was taking it out on my parents which I feel awful about. Also, this is ridiculous. I was terrified that there was some sort of a dead animal in a weird, shadowy crevice in my kitchen. I was terrified to go near it. I even took pics of it and sent it to friend and ex asking what they thought it might be. I finally felt silly and summons the courage to approach it with a flashlight. I then realized it definitely was… Continue

The weekend was nice! My aunt treated me and my cousins to manis and pedis which is such a treat for me! My cousin and aunt made me feel so good about myself. I realize how down on myself I am and I think it's much more deep-rooted than always having a weight problem my whole life. They kept telling me how beautiful I was looking and being so complimentary, and I, in my constantly self-deprecating way just made snarky comments like "Do you need to get your prescription renewed?" "I wish someone… Continue

I have promised myself that I will be brutally honest with myself on my blog , I am using it as a journal , to heal , to recover from emotionally charged binge eating ! That is my real goal , losing weight will be just be a small part of it , I have to accept myself for who I am right now and the rest will follow. So , first things first , take responsibilty for your actions and clean out those closets , there must be a million skeletons in there. The biggest one has a big sign around his neck… Continue

It was such a pleasure to wake up and step on the scale and see 2.4 pounds gone!
And it was even MORE of a pleasure to plan my day, and move forward with my OP eating today. Yep, feeling totally determined and in control! I'm working the process, and the weight is coming off... it takes as long as it takes and I AM ON MY WAY TO GOAL!!!
I'm going to get my 30 day shred in today. It was important for me yesterday to make my ONE focus being OP. Today I feel I can add a… Continue

I know, I know - 2 lb.s gone is great, but I was hoping for 148 to stay on track of my goals. I have been eating well, but I have been getting into the FP's the past few weeks. I got more water in yesterday. I think I've figured it out - I'm a chugger. I drink a whole bottle in one sitting rather than a sip here and there.
I really want to be at 144 by 10/15, but we'll see. The crazy part? Although I am near my goal and have lost nearly 50 lbs., I still see all the fat. I am so out… Continue

I went shopping last weekend for a new skirt. I ended up buying two... but anyway! =o) They are both SIZE 10!!! Currently, I wear a size 12 jeans. I told myself that I would not buy anymore 12s or larger. And, to my surprise really, the size 10s FIT!
If you will notice my stats... you will see that I have been going to WW meetings for nearly two months. Not only have I NOT lost weight... I have gained a total of 0.8 lbs (well, it was more, but I've been losing that!). I can tell that… Continue

I feel like I'm finally finding some control! and it feels awesome! I have been able to control myself the last few nights from snacking at night and from making bad food decisions. I am taking control and I am going to do this. :) Yesterday I was really hungry when I got home from work, I ate my shephards pie and I was still hungry, i thought Oh No! I am going to eat too much because I was already at about the top of my points that I wanted to eat ... so I decided to have a chex mix bar for 2… Continue

After topping out my weight gain at 18 pounds, bringing my weight to 208, I'd had enough. 18 pounds in 8 days is RIDICULOUS! Especially since I haven't changed my eating habits. It was all due to my change in medication. I weighed 190 on the 21st at my wedding, changed meds in case we accidentally get pregnant, and proceeded to swell up like a balloon!
I mean, I just got my wedding ring a week and a half ago and they told me not to wear it in case I swelled up so much they had to cut… Continue

I had a great day yesterday ate within my range and walked 3 miles last night. I got up this morning at 5:30 and walked another 3 miles. It took us about an hour to walk but it was a good workout! I feel so good.

By Wednesday I always feel like crap--run down and exhausted. I'm blogging because I'm hoping I can make myself feel better by the end of this post.
I had to send a student out of my class and to the office yesterday. Not fun. But he was disrespectful (completely ignoring my directions and then he pretended he was going to hit me behind my back) and then he was defiant (He got up during reading time to get paper, I said he didn't need paper right now, so he stole a notebook off MY… Continue

I'm loving Roni's new "eat and Tweet" feature ... though it seems to have only picked up half of the day's entries. Maybe that's because I clicked the button earlier, before I had the entire day's food entered.
Altogether, I had 27 1/2 Points ... and I'm hoping to avoid a late-night snack. There's no reason for me to have one.
Anyway, I think this is a great idea! Thanks, Roni!…

Monday's WI was not what I'd hoped for. Instead of losing 0.6 pounds, I GAINED 0.2. Ugh. That sucks!
Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise, after Wednesday night's book club meeting and too many cookies Thursday at the newspaper's open house. My knee being out Wednesday, Thursday and Friday didn't help matters, either. But I really thought being good for the weekend, taking a walk Saturday and getting that massage Monday morning would push me over the edge. Unfortunately, it… Continue
