And this time I mean it!

Well, I still mean it. Two years later, I have regained the weight lost, went back to the old food ways-eating emotionally, whatever suits my mood. Joints aching, belly bloated once again. The new revalation, 8 weeks of gluten-free, sugar free eating and I am down two pant sizes. The hard part of course is maintaining that eating plan. Christmas is behind us now, the sweets are done, damages were minimal, but it's been confirmed. Sugar increases the aches in my joints as well as setting ...
Well, I still mean it. Two years later, I have regained the weight lost, went back to the old food ways-eating emotionally, whatever suits my mood. Joints aching, belly bloated once again. The new revalation, 8 weeks of gluten-free, sugar free eating and I am down two pant sizes. The hard part of course is maintaining that eating plan. Christmas is behind us now, the sweets are done, damages were minimal, but it's been confirmed. Sugar increases the aches in my joints as well as setting me off on eating more of it. The gluten thing just causes me physical pain, eating it bloats me up, creates gastric distress and overall, just really isn't it worth it. So I'm off on doing my journey differently, as much as I possibly can. I'm learning new ways to make food tasty without added sugars and wheat, give myself treats and support this way of eating, not focusing on the weight, but on how food makes my body feel. It's a learning process...

SparkPoints: 85,439

Fitness Minutes: 30,534

My Goals:
To lose 23 lbs and truly change my behavior with food for good. To exercise daily. This is a lifetime goal, still a good one, but one I am realizing won't go away. To find something joyful in my life every single day.

My Program:
No more computer solitaire. It's like drinking to get numb for me. Track everything I eat. Make my diet whole foods, get my sugar from fruit and not from the box. Walk every day.
No matter what.

Personal Information:
I live in Hollister, a small town in a beautiful valley in Central California. I am an empty nester, my 82 year old mother with dementia lives 3 blocks from me in a nursing home and my adult daughter is a pre-school teacher at a local child development center. My husband and I are rediscovering each other. I am still job/work hunting after a lay-off 11 1/2 mos ago.

Other Information:
I want you to be happy,
to laugh, smile and rejoice in order that others may be made happy by you.

emoticon I've been watching the weather for Friday and it has a chance of rain and thunderstorms. I was hoping for sunny weather. Did you get a chance to check out the distance from Columbus to Jeffersonville?

Well, since you brought up the V word (vacation!) I will tell you that I am working next week, then taking a week off. One week from tomorrow we are moving the Parental Units into supportive living. YAY!!! We will continue to process applications for my dad to transfer into a memory unit. Poor Guy (that's his name). We had pizza after mass tonight and I gave him a soda and he poured it on his pizza. I didn't give him a fork (fingerfood!) so he grabbed a pencil and tried to eat it with that. I cleaned up and cut it up and gave him a fork. He eats EVERYTHING with a fork. He's very confused tonight. God's timing is awesome. We're counting on Him to see us through this!

Hugs to you, my little Chickadee. emoticon

emoticon Just trying to check in. Terry has Andi outside, so I thought I would check and see how you are doing. A new challenge starts today. Hope you will join us. I didn't have a good month last month, but I didn't quit. Hopefully this month will be better. emoticon
