Yesterday, I started out with the idea that I would post my food for the first time in a long long time. Started out pretty good. Then, as usual, we had a ribbon cutting at a local restaurant with wine choices and fancy snacks. Then afterward, we went directly to the business mixer at the local bottle club. Fell into the potato chips and could not stop. I just can't concentrate on being on a diet and I need to as I look fat again. tonight we always go to the Yacht Club where they have food and at least I am not drinking beer for lent. And I don't want any wine either. So won't be drinking much. And tomorrow is my birthday so I know we will have cake and I love cake. My lifestyle is just not into dieting. I haven't tried Jenny Craig and they have one here. Maybe I should. I really think that WW gives me permission to eat too much so that didn't work.
Just at a loss for words and what to do. Doomed to be 188 for the rest of my life. Later.

Well, I've been off and delivered some pics this morning to a client and went and got flowers for my mother-in-law. They were beautiful and just the pick me up she needed. So we all feel better. Now, I had a replacement shake with milk, strawberries and protein powder in it and a small mandarin orange for b reakfast. For lunch I am going to eat leftover stuffed green pepper stuffed with beef, onion, garlic, pepper and couscou. I always add a little chopped jalapeno pepper to things like this to avoid using too much salt. Didn'teven add salt but it was fine to my taste. So if I can just pare my food down to items like this, I could start losing agin. And leave off the sweets. Happy St. Pat's. No green beer for me.

Well, after only one week, I had to resume my intake of the little blue pill. I guess I am smart enough to realize that when I get a pain in my right eyebrow,next to my nose, it's not going to work. So I just went right back to the normal dose. If I want to eliminate a pill, it will have to be another one. Why add tylenol when you are trying not to medicate? And there is too much turmoil in my life right now.
My mother-in-law is 92 in June and she has been having a sciatic nerve problem with pain in her left leg and hip. We've been to the emergency room and been given pain meds and then Tuesday a.m., she fell and the ambulance had to come to help her up. We had a scheduled Doctor appmt on Tuesday afternoon and that took 3 hours while we waited, saw the nurse, and then had to get x-rays. The x-rays showed what we already knew, arthritis in the back. So there is nothing to be done except press on. We did have a medical massage therapist go to see her Wed morning and she felt better afterward. Then last night, while she was getting ready for bed, she fell again and another ambulance visit. My husband went over and got her into bed but she is very upset and of course, I had said something to her on Tuesday that upset her and she was mad about that. Sometimes you can't say anything right.
Hopefully today she will be better and not fall down. I will go over and take flowers. AS to dieting, what? I guess I just don't want to make the effort. And that's the truth. Effort would mean counting calories and I don't want to. So I am thinking about revisiting the mediterranean diet but that entails looking for the book again. Actually, I've cooked a couple of reasonable meals this week which is the first in a while. Tongiht is pig out again. A ribbon cutting at a restaurant and a business mixer.
Last night was my quilting Block of the Month meeting and I picked up blocks 5 and 6 of Patriots in Petticoats. And I'm working on my Bargello and I just ordered and received a quilt panel to make for 2 grandsons. It features a road traveling around stores and a school and I think they will love it with their cars. Now I've got too many projects and I have to complete one before I start another. At least the top part anyway. I've been looking for that road panel so when I found it online, it was on sale and of course had to get it.
Happy St. Patrick's Day1

When I started with Sparkpeople last year, I weighed 188. This morning I weighed in at 188. Sigh! I worked so hard and it took so long for me to lose down to 179. And then, I just put it back on over a few months. I guess I can look at the bright side, it was only 9 pounds, not 90.
So hubby came home from the YMCA on Friday at 184. He has made a lenten promise to give up beer, snacks, and sweets. And for him it will work. I will give up all of those things too. He will probably lose 15 pounds. I will maybe lose 2 or 3 if I am lucky.
Weight just clings to me but I'm not giving up. I am going to try to eat in a healthy fashion and give up the beer and snacks and sweets as well. Try and try again.
Wed will be one week since I have shaved off a corner of the little blue pill. Side effects of that pill which I have taken for about 10 years include weight gain and constipation. I can attest to that and maybe that is also why weight clings to me. That little blue pill won't give up. I have noticed a slight headache in the mornings but other than that, I seem to be doing all right. To alleviate the headache, I've gone out to walk. I am going to continue shaving off that edge for a while and then switch to taking 40 mg a day from the 50 I take right now. Minus, the edge. Maybe if I go real slow, and my doctor and I have talked about this, it will work. Cold Turkey did not work last year.
So here I am once again. Birthday cake on Saturday coming up. Can't do without the cake on my birthday.
