Although many wonderful things have happened in 2008, I got married and bought a house, I will still be glad to see it go. The New Year always brings such hope for new beginnings. I know in 2009 I will be in charge of what I eat, I will be in charge of my own happiness. I look forward to not letting my weight get in the way of me doing things. I have resolved not to worry about what other people are thinking because frequently that is what stops me from doing something. So my new years resolution is not to loose weight, but rather to take control of my life in all areas.
See you all in 2o09!

Today I cannot shake the feeling that I am doing this. I can cause change in my body without starving myself, without depriving myself of all treat and by just getting off my you know what and moving!!! When the buddy support system in the DONE girls team started this month I weight 279.5 and I set an ambition goal of 270! Well today I weight in at 272.3 making my goal completely attainable. No Christmas party or gathering will stand in my way! I have had 2 Christmas parties and 2 baking days and although I did indulge a little I tried so hard to stay within my calories! I know huge weight loss like this will not always be there but as I begin this journey I am glad to have the extra motivation!
Thanks to everyone here for all there amazing support!

Well we all start out with good intentions. Talking the talk, walking the walk and then all of a sudden in a moment of weakness a huge Christmas party buffet opens up on you. Without hesitating you fill half your plate with veggies and are feeling pretty good. You ate a little too much but haven't blown it. Then comes the desserts. I thought I was going to be able to pick a small brownie or a cookie. No they pull out my favourite. Apple crumble cake! I just melt and eat a huge piece! As I put my fork down and finish it I feel awful knowing full well that I just blew my calorie range. CRAP!!! Comes to mind. But as my title says. OH WELL!! I was honest tracked every morsel I ate and now need to kick butt Mon-Friday of this week that's it, that's all! I'm just happy that I've come to the point where I don't lie to myself. I don't pretend it's OK that I just ate too much but I don't beat myself up either.
Here's to a new week with better choices!

Today I am feeling exhausted. I think the craziness of two jobs, plus tutoring, a husband, a house and Christmas is starting to get to me. I log on here everyday though and it seems to keep me going. Anyway here is to hoping that tomorrow I wake up rested and ready to take on the world! I'm tired of being tired lately!

Well this weekend I had to make a trip out of town to write a test that had me completely stressed out. I managed to be really good on Friday staying within my range and such. Then Saturday came and when the test was over I was thrilled. BUT that's where the food goes downhill. I then went out for lunch with my husband where it wasn't too bad. We enjoyed shawarma which is not all that bad for you. I figured I was good we were going back to my Mom's for dinner she always cooks healthier foods. Well on the way to my Mom's we ran into a lot of snow. We pulled into a Tim Horton's got a coffee and a donut! Then when we got to my mom's we went out for dinner instead of eating in where I over ate and had desert. Sunday was more of the same as Saturday. Too much eating out and bad choices along the way. The good news is I was COMPLETELY honest in my nutrition tracker! And I am ready and aware of the errors I have made. But starting right now I am moving forward. Tomorrow will be a new day with a fresh beginning!
