Sometimes I can't believe how strong my desire to eat is in the evening. I've developed the bad habit of not eating at work, the evenings I work. Then I get home and scarf down everything because I'm starving! So i've made a point to eat a good meal at work and maybe leave a few points for after work, for a snack. I'm out of points, not even hungry, and all I can think about is potato chips, and cookies. So i'm calling it a night, and in the morning I will be happy I didn't cave. Hopefully I…Continue
Well - I have to tell you that I'm thwarting off eating something that I do not need by going to bed early. If I go to bed, I won't eat.
Had another great day today as I'm ticking the days away till the big one.
Breakfast: 2 Morning Glory Muffins
Lunch: Lettuce/Tomato Salad with Poppyseed Dressing, two slices each of Ham/Turkey and some melon.
Snack: Some nuts (like a trail mix) and some frozen cherries.
Dinner: Steak, sauteed' mushrooms & onions,…Continue
Catching up to today...
What’s eating out like on Jenny Craig? Not a huge amount of fun. First there’s the fear of gaining back any weight you’ve worked so hard to lose.Then there’s the conundrum of what’s a safe item to order. You skip lunch so you’ve got a few more calories leeway. Then hangry and fearful you head out. Glass of wine as you sit down to the table? No. The consultant’s advice is to switch wine for vodka and soda to reduce the calories. The waitress gives you the once…Continue
I had a whole post typed and my browser crapped out. So here is the short version....
Yesterday and today I really kept myself on track. I even spent a lot of time in the kitchen doing prep for meals and ensuring that I had what I needed while at work. Everything has been whole and clean eating.
I went on a run/walk tonight which was good. I love when a challenge week gets easier to manage and I'm not sucking in air. I think I'm ready to move on to week 4. I'm looking…Continue
Two weeks ago I committed to mixing things up, eating more protein, focusing on real foods and cutting out some of the treats. I didn't officially weigh in last week because I was working the meeting. I am proud to say that this week I was down 3.4 pounds (total for the past 2 weeks). I am super excited to see my losses kickstarted again and I'm anxious to see how it continues in the coming weeks. I've bounced around a lot in the weeks since my daughter was born and I am ready to see that…Continue
I used to love eating. I loved the planning and research. I’m a kitchen tourist, the sort of person who sneaks into a country through the kitchen’s back door. I delve into the spices and ingredients, try and learn about the cooking techniques and the cultural history of dishes. Like a magpie I then make off with the shiniest treats from around the globe. Shrimp paste from Indonesia, fish sauce from Thailand, barberries from Iran, olive vegetable from Hong Kong, fermented tofu from…Continue
Here's my weekly goals as prescribed by my holistic health coach--
I missed my last weekly check in. Super busy last weekend as our kitchen remodel got under way. HOORAY! We've hired a contractor, but needed to prepare meals and pack up about half of our 1st floor as most of the layout is changing.
2nd exciting update--I signed up to work with a holistic health coach. Not cheap, but man...I REALLY want to end my obsession with food, health, weight, numbers, sizes, etc. I had my first session with her a little over a…Continue
You sick of me? I'm sick of me! I can't even stand to hear myself talk anymore. I am 52 days away from the "BIG one" birthday and well.....I am no where even close to having lost 50 x 50. In fact, I'm back up to my starting weight from when I joined BTL. (Jan 2013)
I signed up to do Weight Watchers online yesterday. I wanted to walk through the eating component with a little more structure. I've been on WW before. In the past it was all or nothing. I put pressure on myself to lose weight quickly so I was very strict, set impossible goals, and stressed out. Naturally I set myself up for discouragement and failure. This time I don't feel an urgency to lose the weight quickly. I set realistic goals. I set my goal weight to be 3 pounds less than I am now…Continue
Well its been 3 years since I've worried about my health and I have steadily put the weight back on. Well After the past 3 months of hell things are finally falling into place and I think its time to start putting myself ahead of everyone else and get my life back. I am ready to become that confident,happy, healthy woman I was 3 years ago. I am even thinking about starting a youtube channel about my loss. I have been afraid to speak or show anyone anything but if I;ve learned anything about…Continue

This is new for me. I usually embark on a task knowing the end date. So it has been with dieting. I'd tell myself, "I want to lose 10 pounds by this date." Today I realized there is no end date on this journey. My outlook now is "Just do your best, and let's see what happens, when it happens." I have a goal weight in mind, but I don't know when I will get there. That's ok! I have a healthy lifestyle in mind for the rest of my life, and that is what I'm going to work towards everyday.…Continue

Where to begin... This last week has been interesting. I read a book called The Night Shift Diet and thought I'd like to try that but before I even got started I realized that I wasn't going to be able to go low carb. So I nixed that idea but the writer still had some very good points like document everything food, exercise, water, mood, and how much sleep you got. I started out this journey by documenting but it quickly stopped and it was only what I ate and what exercising I did. So I've…Continue
Just read all my blah blah blah from last year and I am ashamed at my lack of stick-to-it-ness. The swelling in my right ankle and calf has gotten worse - so much so that I do not wear shorts when I go out any more.
