2014 - A whole new year

Working on my health at the moment!

Worked very hard this year - did a very restrictive diet to eliminate allergens from my diet. I discovered quite a bit about myself: what foods I'm sensitive to, that I really CAN cook, and how much will power I have in me (a LOT).

At the moment, I'm eating fairly average again, just avoiding my sensitivity foods. Taking a break from the real restrictions until I can meet with a new dietitian, maybe in early October.

Brief background:
I had my growth spurt early, and was always bigger than most of my friends. Big boned girls don't have it easy, and good eating habits were not part of my life. But for the most part, high school wasn't too bad. I was probably in the 140s. College was bad, because I didn't know how to cook and the food started sticking more. I was up and down the scale varying from 140s to 160s. @age 20 I was about 165, then slimmed down. Lowest as adult was probably 148 @ 21 or 22.

Now I am in my late 20s and cooking is still not my forte and snacks are my indulgence. I wasn't paying any attention at all to my eating and I got up to 178 @ end of 2009. I was ready to get serious about starting the better eating habits. I knew I couldn't quit cold turkey, so I am slowly incorporating healthier habits into my life, and some of the unhealthy stuff is slipping away unnoticed. And it's ok!

I'm on the journey.

Aloha! I just read something you posted on the 'Stangs thread and wanted to comment....."Who cares?".....*I* care! I care IF not decorating will matter to you but if you truly don't care and would only do so for something that isn't even going to see it then it would serve to be stressful and cause resentment so absolutely DON'T! If having a tiny something maybe on your desk would make you smile and your heart sing....go for it!

Missed ya'll! Make it count!!!!!

So when you had the Squash you cut it "forked" it then boiled it? And not to sound REALLY dumb but what do you mean fork it?

Thank you for your comments on my blog. I have so much joy that I have that burden relieved. Never realized how much emotional baggage it can be to think someone actually hates you!
