Being back here after falling off the wagon, has been a real eye opener. I feel that I am finally back in the "groove" and starting to do what I have to do.
One of the things I have realized that is a MUST is the tracking of food. I know now, that once I stopped tracking, the pounds came back. At the end of the day, I am always astonished at how quickly those calories add up. The fact that I am a petite person makes it even harder because I need less than those that are taller and bigger.
I am just starting....really, just starting to feel a little better. I haven't lost much weight yet but with doing more walking, a little weight work, I am feeling better. More importantly, I am sleeping better, which is huge for me.
Well, I'm off to my son's baseball game. It's freezing outside but I try to never miss one. If you go outside you just might be able to hear me screaming for his team!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm really trying to turn this corner. I know what I need to do and I have to get past the anger that I have to do this all over again.
Today, instead of coming straight home from work I stopped at the lake. I walked around it (3 miles), got in the car and came home. I have to say that it was the most difficult time I've ever had walking the lake. I couldn't believe how hard it was! I almost stopped but refused to allow myself that and pushed through.
I'm glad I did this. Even though it was hard, it wasn't impossible. I also know that the more I do this, the easier it will become. I know, I know....it all starts with the first step.
I'm off to have lunch now. I really nice big salad with some chicken breast in it.
I am hoping this is a new beginning for me. Thank you all for all your great support. It really does help.

I am trying, really I am. I am back here because I gained so much of the weight I lost back. I hate it but am really struggling.
It seems last time the weight just came off. Yes, I was eating right and exercising and I really looked great just one short year ago. Now , I have to admit, I really hate myself. I'm so angry that I slipped up so badly I can't seem to get on track. Every day I get up and say to myself I'm going to win today but by evening, I'm a loser (and not in the good way).
Ok, I'm venting, I know but I am having a much harder time. I'm hanging on my my fingernails!!

My little girl is having a birthday next week. She is going to be 19. No, not 19 months but 19 years old. I am having trouble believing all this time has passed. Here she is in college, forging her way in life and I still think of her as my baby.
I have always baked her a cake on her birthday. This is the first time ever she has been away from home. What to do, what to do. Well, send her a cake, that's what!
How does one do that? Well, this is what I came up with. I baked a cake in a disposable aluminum pan. Then I realized that it would be impossible to frost and send and have it get there looking like a birthday cake so.....I decided to pack it up and send it with the frosting and the decoration.
How does one pack a cake? LOL....well....I didn't want anything to come in contact with the cake that wasn't edible. I'm kind of a germ-a-phobe. So, I packed it in marshmallows. I piled them high, then wrapped it all in plastic wrap and then put a lid on it. I then put the frosting, two spatulas, candles with a "1" and a"9" and a birthday card from mom. Then, I sent the entire package to her roommate! I am hoping that her girlfriends will frost and decorate the cake and surprise her on her birthday!! Oh well, we can hope!! Yes, I sent instructions too!
I miss her. I miss the young lady she has become and I miss that adorable little girl I used to have tea parties with and play barbie. One I will get back, one will be a wonderful memory.
There really is nothing like a little girl.
