I am now on thyroid medication. This explains a lot!!! Hopefully I can actually lose weight and keep it off. This has up to now been an exercise in futility.

Here I am again

Friday, May 09, 2014

I can't believe I am still fighting this battle. I can't quit or ever give up so I have no choice but to keep on keeping on. I have started doing 60-90 minutes 5 times a week in the pool. My dietician told me I was eating too little. Well, something is wrong somewhere. Let's hope this year 2014 I find a solution!

    Eating too little definately slows down the metabolism, so whatever you DO eat, your body retains it. I learnt that the hard way. :)

After the memorial service, back on the wagon

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

When my mother passed away suddenly last Monday, I spent a week away from home and tending to my father and family and friends. Such an outpouring of love from everyone. But the food choices were anything but conducive to my program and it was not possible keep doing what i was. I didn't do too much damage. But you know, somehow I believe my mother would be honored to see me get right back on the wagon and keep losing. She was a great encourager and wanted to see me lose weight and be healthy.

I miss my mom. Probably always will.

    Hi, I am sorry for your loss and know how you feel, your mother is watching over you and I am sure she is proud of how well your doing. I lost my mom 2002, she was my best friend and I still miss her everyday, but I don't cry everyday, not anymore, just on some days or when I don't feel good, so yes you will always miss her but some how in some ways it does get easier and although it isn't ever going to be easy, at least not for me I remind myself she is watching, and I believe she is proud! Good luck on your journey

Stress eating - Mom's passing

Saturday, March 23, 2013

I didn't know I react this way. My mother's passing on Monday has kept me busy, yes, I get that, but the stress eating ..... Well, I know enough to not beat myself up over that, and I still have a few days away from home before I can get back on the program. It's been rugged. The grief comes in waves. Sometimes tears, sometimes laughing over good times remembered. Food is everywhere, from the neighbors, from friends, fried chicken and biscuits, chocolate cream pies, cheese cakes. At least I didn't have to cook. With 4 brothers, I felt I was stepping into mom's shoes. She was quite a lady. She will be sorely missed. I know she would encourage me to be healthy and not allow myself to overeat and eat all the wrong foods. On the other hand, she would understand the situation and wouldn't want me to feel bad that I haven't had the right food around. Life does have it's challenges, doesn't it?

  I'm sorry to read about your loss. Losing a loved one isn't easy, especially a parent. Take time for yourself and soon you'll be able to get back on track.

    emoticon the losing of someone close to us is really difficult and you will be going through a lot of emotions and sometimes, eating is a way of giving our minds comfort since it is a mindless activity

with time things will get better and you an refocus on your weight loss goals

    No one is blameing you for eating in this time of loss. When you are ready start over and get back on the plan. I am sorry for your loss.

Quarterly Report

Monday, February 25, 2013

In my last blog, I reported that I had moved and had some other changes and challenges that completely derailed my progress and before I slammed on the brakes I had gained back 20 pounds emoticon . So in January I decided to treat losing weight like it's my job. I can't quit my job. I can't make it someone else's job. It's MY JOB. No one else can do this but me. I have all the tools I need at my finger tips with this program. Lots of other people in the same boat.

Others on this site may not approve but I needed to get this latest set back off as quickly as possible because of the havoc the 20 pounds was wreaking on my joints. I got a Medifast kit and it is working for me. I have lost half of the twenty and ten more to go to get back to where I was before the move.

I have learned something about myself and getting distracted by life changes and circumstances. All is not lost if something is learned. There are mistakes I will not make again. And weight loss is not a destination it is a journey. So onward I go.
