Monday 3/25/13--First thing this morning, I ate a half of a Krispy Kreme doughnut, but at least it was half and not whole!! also up drinking coffee with my husband at 7 am, instead of getting out of bed and hitting the exercise room, but I am not going to let this defeat me and ruin my whole day and my food and exercise plan, just need to make adjustments---no more excuses!!
@12pm--Well--so far today I haven't exercised and I have eaten too large of portions!!Grrrrrrr---
@8pm--At least I have ate pretty much healthy food-(homemade vegetable soup) and the only junk food I have ate has been the doughnut I ate this morning- I did resist the temptation to get a candy bar and a cup of coffee at the store I went by and I resisted the temptation to stop at a fast food restaurant I went by on my way home from downtown today----So I have done a few things right anyway--

Just read your entire diary and I am sooo impressed & proud of your determination and you should be too. Whenever you feel down on yourself come back here and read some of these encouraging words. All throughout your comments I sensed all the stress and fatigue your have been under. I know how hard it is to eat right and exercise when feeling like this, but the odd thing is that it's just what is going to make you feel better both physically and emotionally emoticon Don't be so hard on yourself. I think when the weather warms us and the sun shines more often you will feel much better. Hang in there kiddo!!

Note to Self: ( a good meditation) -----It's not just my right but also my purpose on earth to become the person I long to be. I don't long to be a victim; I long to be good, healthy and creative, I long to feel the fun of a fit body and the joy of being able to run around with my husband and dog. I long to gave a non- obsessive relationship with food, and I long to look in the mirror and like what I see.
No one but me is denying myself these experiences, and I am facing that fact--that I am cruel to myself --that I am holding myself back--that I am harming myself--when I abuse my body and mind by overeating and not exercising---and I face this fact head on and look it square in the eye--and therefore--take action to start following my dreams of a smaller, healthier body and a cleaner, and clearer mind---3/20/13---

I woke up with a awful headache like I have been waking up with every morning!! Since I had that flu bug, probably from sinus and also all the carbs I have been eating-- You are what you eat are very true words--I feel so much better when I eat healthy and exercise!!

I swear--I just can't seem to snap out of this "no energy " zone--Seems like I am not wanting to eat to healthy foods I have here, but I am still wanting to eat creamy foods or salty foods, and not motivated at all to exercise. I was all excited about getting back into exercise and eating right Thursday and I did mean it- but I ended up once again messing up, and eating all the wrong foods and not exercising I am praying extra hard for God's help in getting back and staying on track this coming week- I am still going to be tracking my food even though it may not be pretty- and as much as I dread it, I am still going to weigh Monday morning, Good news or bad news I am still going to weigh- I am going to hang in there with this thing until I get it right, I am determined not to give up!!!

Okay --I'm back!! I have been in a bad place physically and mentality, for a few days, but, enough of that! It's time to move on--(btw--the job I had, well let's just say--it has went from seven days a week to zero days a week--short time--no work, right now--I do have a little job on the side lined up -I hope, for a week or so-maybe longer, I don't know--And this, on top of recovering from the flu bug I had last week end, has gotten me a little down,but I don't stay down long and it's time to get over it!! If I keep trying and keep praying, I know I will find something, somewhere, that I will like and will be able to have steady, and reliable hours. I just have to have faith in God, that everything will be okay and will work out in time--And in the meantime it is time to get myself together---

I lost only one pound this week and that probably happened because I was so sick yesterday, I got a flu bug and was really sick Saturday evening and all day Sunday-- finally better today-- last week was---well let's just say --"I have seen better weeks" but it is over now and time to move on----

I have fell off the last couple of days--I have eaten sooooo much and I haven't track my food--At a really stressful time the last couple of days---but now I may be out of work for a while I don't know yet--but if I am-- I am going to look at it as a time to regroup and get back in the swing of things--after working 7 days a week for the last three weeks---

Good for you for coming back. I am doing the same. I think it's all our mindset that determines our success and this time mine is different. More positive, more forward thinking and definitely more of a "I can do it" attitude. Good luck to you as you move forward on your journey.

Glad u won't stop.
I've been reading Richard Bernstein MD's "THE DIABETES DIET" and learning about my Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. He has lectures on youtube that are so worth listening to since he has had Type 1 diabetes since age 12 and he is 78 now.
