Today I managed to go to 1 hour of church.
I ate just barely under 1200 calories.
I am very tired and a bit nauseous.
I guess this is normal?

I am down nearly another pound at 178.9.
Sugars do not interest me and I am tempted to try altering the foods I do eat to completely eliminate them from my diet.
I think this may be the only way I may begin feeling better.

    Thanks for the encouragement.
Actually, I know that the nasty feeling is from the appendectomy and amazing weight loss post-op. I am using the reluctance to eat sugar and small appetite to my weight loss advantage. It wasn't even a week ago that nasty little organ was removed.

I am down to 179.8 this morning.
I ate within calorie range again today.
I am still weak from the surgery but I did manage to go shopping at the local thrift store for some new pants since my current wardrobe is a bit tight in the stomach area.

Just before my appendix began to be a problem, it was my daughter's birthday.
Her cake sits upon my kitchen counter.
I finally had time and energy to frost it today.
She isn't much for sugar and I don't feel like eating it either.
Maybe it will sit there until it becomes inedible and we throw it out.
Kind of weird, but good too.
The Halloween candy will go to good use though - my son loves it.

I can hardly wait until I heal enough to exercise again.
My stomach muscles are bulging as if I were pregnant.
But one step at a time.
I am still taking a nap in the middle of the day. emoticon

Two days ago I had my appendix removed.
That was Tuesday.
Last Sunday I became ill while making dinner
which I haven't done since I was pregnant,
and was unable to eat. I didn't eat at all Monday
and had surgery at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning.

I was able to eat a little cereal for a late breakfast Tuesday,
a little chicken broth for lunch and a little sweet potato soup for dinner.
Yesterday I was able to eat the same for breakfast and lunch
and upgraded to an egg sandwich for dinner.

The same for meals today, but my appetite has started to return
I added a snack of peanut butter on bread and a fruit cup.
For dinner, the neighbor brought chicken enchiladas.
I ate some - even though they looked a bit calorie ridden.

This morning I weighed in at 181.3 which is down 2 pounds.
I haven't wanted any sugar all this time.
Can I keep it off and keep losing too?
Can I avoid the draw of the energy filled snacks that draw me in so often?

Time will tell.
And so will I


Another half-filled challenge

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I thought I would last more than 9 days. I really hoped for better.

But, here I am. I can't change the past but I can learn from it.
I am set now to accept that I do not need to eat constantly.
Sugar makes me tired. It only occasionally gives energy and that is after way too much of it.
I can control my disappointments through control of my eating habits.
Am I sad? Too bad. I do not need to eat. I do not need to eat. I do not need to eat.
Am I anxious? Too bad. Take a walk and clear my mind.
Am I tired? Too bad. Go to bed earlier tonight.
Am I frustrated? Too bad. Obviously, People are not interested in helping me in any way, shape or form. I don't need someone else to make me happy. I can make life happy without their help. And these same people wonder why I am not interested in stopping my goals and plans to make their day better.

I just want to be seen.
I want to know that I am important.
Do you hear me?
Do I exist?
Or is it only when I am doing what you want and eating your high calorie foods that I am real to you?
Are my goals of health and longevity worth the inconveniences you seem to feel because of my desire to serve low-fat meals and run in the evening?

I am real. I know I am. And I will continue to love you anyway.


Challenge day 9

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Tuesdays are busy. I am so tired.
I did eat well and logged all my calories.
I am here. I did it for day 9.

Sometimes its good to be busy, that means less time for food! I find it better for me when I keep busy. Just have down time to have a healthy snack!
