Creature of habit

Thursday, January 05, 2012

I find that as I go through life I do a lot of things the same way every time I do them. I drive the same way to school for the girls each schoolday, I park my car the same way on the street if I can get to "my space", and many other things.
This can be a good thing for loosing weight. As long as I choose to eat the same healthy breakfast daily and choose to make healthy choices and control portion sizes, I will loose weight. I just have to stay aware of what and when I am eating. SP really helps me keep track of what is going into my mouth and I am seeing results.
Lifelong change of habit, for the better. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon


Atificial sweeteners-toxic

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I have had problems with artificial sweeteners before. They almost crippled me. I was having pain in my feet and went to the Dr., was refered to podiatrist and no one could find anything wrong with me and they could not help me.
One day I was checking out artificial sweeteners and their toxcicity online and found they could cause a lot of problems. I stopped using them in my coffee and made sure that I wasn't eating anything with them in it. Within 2 weeks, the crippling pains that I had suffered with for 2 years abated.
Every once in a while I feel pain in my feet and realise that something that I wasn't paying attention to had sucralose or some other artificial sweetener in it.
I sure wish like the yogurt companies would use stevia instead of sucralose. I forgot about looking at the lable today and bought some light yogurt with sucralose in it. I won't eat it. emoticon emoticon Now my healthy snack, is not healthy.


Snacking at night!

Monday, January 02, 2012

It's 7:00 PM and I have eaten my dinner and am feeling hungry again. I have snack food here for the husband and girls that don't want or need to diet with me. There is so much temptation here and I didn't get to the farmers market to buy veggie snacks. I am really working at not making a piece of toast with butter, or grabbing a handful of crackers and feeding my face. Then I look at my starting weight picture and I know that I want to change that picture to a healthier one. So I am resisting. emoticon Pray for me!

    Hope you were able to hold off, or find a healthier alternative! Some nights, I find it impossible not to grab something. I try to keep some yogurt or fruit in the fridge, or low-fat single serving bags of kettlecorn (sweet + kinda salty + 1.5 grams of fat + about 100 calories for 2 cups = complete awesomeness!). Sometimes, I'll have a bowl of cereal. I'm not proud of my after-dinner snacks, but I simply cannot sleep on an empty stomach. As long as my snack choices are healthier than the ones I've made in the past (ice cream, cookies, chips), I know I am making progress.

Good moring everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR! Out with the old and in with the new for me.
I am on a journey for not only my body but my mind and happiness. I am not happy with all of this extra weight on my body making it harder to move around and even harder to look in the mirror. I believe that I can do it and so can you. This is a great place to track what goes into my mouth and what I can do to loose weight.

I have never blogged before, but am finding it kind of fun and a good way to let out thoughts that I usually keep to myself.

I hope everyone is motivated for a new and better life for themselves.

God Bless America! Good luck to all! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I sure would like to get a good nights sleep. Sometimes the pain of my hips keeps me awake, but my 17 year old granddaughter seems to get insomnia some nights and wakes me getting up and wandering around the kitchen. That was last night. My eyes are at half mast. She sleeps in while I have to get up and move to not get too stiff. Got to get grandson so he can spend New Years Eve with us, and the night.

God Bless America. Happy New Year to all and may we have a great year.
