My first week back has been a success. I have not eaten any wheat/gluten, have posted on FB every day, drank 8 cups of water daily, logged everything that I have eaten daily, and I have lost 2 pounds. An added bonus is that since I have not been eating any wheat/gluten, my jeans fit looser as well and my joints are not as achy as they were. I have also done a little walking. I am trying to work back into this slowly so that I don't feel overwhelmed.
For week 2 I will staygluten-free, drink my water, log my food, and be active on a team. I am also going to commit myself to three days of strengthening exercises so that I can ease back into exercising.
I feel good about the changes I am making in my life.

Tomorrow is my scheduled weekly weigh-in but my pants are fitting a little looser so I had to take a peek today. I just started Tuesday and I have already lost 2 pounds. :) I know that some of what I am feeling in my clothes is less bloat because I am avoiding gluten. I will take whatever I can get. :)

Today was a busy day, but I stayed within my calories and ate well. It was hard to resist temptation this evening. I had been running errands and grocery shopping and was very hungry. It was tempting to buy some cookies or Funyuns, but I resisted the temptation and kept going. I have stocked up on eggs, lean meats, fresh/frozen veggies, and fruit so that I will have the right foods to eat. I also got in a bit of exercise with all the walking I did from my vehicle to the stores, around the stores, and back to my vehicle. I wore myself out today but it feels good. In only 3 days, I can feel a difference in my jeans...they are fitting a little looser, It feels good to be getting back on track.

Back in March there was so much going on in my life that I was totally overwhelmed and I think that life came crashing down on me. Things are not ideal for me at this time either, but there is so much less stress than there was a few months ago. I have come to realize that sparking alone is better than not sparking at all; I miss Sparkpeople.
I need to make major changes in my life to improve my health. I am on a self-destructive path and with the stress I have been under combined with my unhealthy weight and eating, I am on a one way track to a heart attack, stroke, or diabetes complications. I wish I did not have to do this alone, but it seems that is how it has to be. I am going to try one last time to get myself on track and stay there. I know it will not be easy but I am going to give it my best.
My first goal is simply to return to Sparkpeople and I will start logging my meals again. I have to start somewhere and I think that I need to keep it simple as it has been months since I really tried. The good news is that I have not gained any weight, so I have that going for me. I will begin again today by going to the grocery store to purchase some healthy foods so that I can eat better. I start logging my meals first thing tomorrow morning! This is going to be really hard for me as I have gotten used to eating what I want, when I want...chips, pasta, fruit, etc., and in any amount that I want. It is a miracle that I have not gained weight.

I have finally realized that it is time to just give up. I have reached the point of just not wanting to go on anymore. So, I think I am just done. It is not worth the frustration, endless attempts to continue on, constant disappointment, and lack of support from family and friends. This will most likely be my last blog...or post of any kind on SparkPeople. I wish all of my "friends" the best on their continuing journey and success in meeting all of their goals.
