Takin' Care of Business!!

I had a stroke 4 years ago, and have just sorta given up on myself. My weight kept creeping up and up, my self esteme faltering. My daughter, also is my best friend, has encouraged me to take this first huge step to a better, healthier, slimmer and happier life!

I am so glad that you are Startin-New!! We all have our ups and downs and what counts is that you are back and that is the key to a healthy lifestyle emoticon

One thing I have I am doing this time around is that I no longer beat myself up when I don't eat right. That used to be the big excuse to QUIT totally. No more excuses for me. I have a 'total screwup' category on my food tracke. This way I can look at that day and see "if I hadn't eaten that (whatever is in the total screwup', then I would have been within my ranges".

Relighting your spark is SUPER!

I am having a hard time keeping my hands busy w/o putting food in them. What do you do when eating is the easiest thing that comes to mind. I have cucs in the fridge and am thinking about bread. At least I came to the puter instead of adding more food. I grew up never knowing if i was hungry or not.
I am lazy about writing food down. And have a fairly stressful life. I know counting calories like you said (1400-1600 day) works best for me too.
What about "free" snacks like cucs or celery? Is anything considered free other than water?
I am thrilled for you to have done so successfully toward your goal. Any major hints?Maybe get dressed and go outside instead of thinking food which is a lazy indoor activity. I'll try that now. Funny, I dont know if I'm hungry or not but I just think FOOD. I could think Drink? But no, food and fridge. It's like a form of mindless anaesthesia like the TV.
Thanks for listening, Cathy Jo
