For the love of Chocolate

Monday, September 22, 2014

To eat healthy I have to look for the healthier versions of my best foods or eliminate them from my diet. Cut out soda, mayo and most cheesy snacks. Found a Special K chips, 90 cal Brownies and 100 cal yogurt. 100 percent juice. Everything doesn't taste so bad but the Dark chocolate.
It Has a Bitter taste and so far I found a 52 percent cocoa chocolate from Goya that I can tolerate. Everything else that I have tried just goes more bitter.
Its hard to restrain myself from the caramel bars and I HAVE GROWN DISIPLINE TO HAV JUST ONE BLOCK OF IT per day.
The old me would say once the pack is open everything would disappear. Shizam!
So for now I would have a glass of milk and a block of dark chocolate. And that ladies and gentlemen is milk chocolate. emoticon

fired and rehired in 30 mins

Friday, June 29, 2012

The company I worked for gave notice last Thursday afternoon that our services were no longer needed.On Friday the 22nd of june 106 workers including myself were jobless. We were called in offices ( escorted by security) one by one and handed the official letters also numbers to call for counselling ( to help with the mental damages). After receiving my letter I was informed that the General Manager wanted to see me. With extra security I went to his office, in a private setting ,I was one of the chosen few to be transferred to another group company.Luckily the transfer was to a company in my home town 10 mins drive compared to the 90 mins arrival time. I accepted the offer. To my jobless co workers my heart pours out to them but only those without a jealous heart still speaks to me. What hurts me the most is those that turned against me are the same ones I went out of my way to pick them up and drive them home knowing that it was a great distance to go to work everyday. Some are trying to sue the company but in a few months we will know the outcome. Not sleeping because I have so many emotions inside me ( which is not helping me stick to my eating plan ). In the end GOD has been with me all the way.

    Hey Beautiful Lady. Your work ethic gave you back the job you earned and deserve. Let the comments flow off you like water. They are just hurting and afraid. emoticon

    I am so glad that you were one of the fortunate to be offered another position. Try not to take the reactions of others who were not selected too personally, they most likely are just projecting their worry about paying the bills onto you. Congrats on your new job and best wishes with maybe starting a walking group at the new place. And as for the diet, when you feel stressed try going for a walk or asking someone you love for a hug instead of turning to food...I struggle with this too, but these are some of the things I have started to do instead of eat.

    A strong ethic and going above and beyond goes a long way. I'm glad you were offered the opportunity for a new position because of it. I am sorry about your fellow co-workers who are envious or jealous of your good fortune. I will pray for them in their time of need.

    Glad God is blessing you with a job.
Trust in God, he is taking care of you, and those who are jealous should be ignored. The fact you helped co-workers maybe one of the reasons you have a job.

    I am happy you have your job back. However; it is sad that the others are treating you as such. Many many years ago there was a lay off where I had worked. I came to work every day , worked when they ask me to on my vacations, gave a lot of myself. When the lay off came I did not get it. There were workers there longer than I was I was swore at as they were leaving ,not understanding until one boss pulled me aside & told me some of those let go were one's that had habitual tardiness & did not care about there work ethic. I was in my early twenties then about 40 years ago. I am sorry you were treated bad by the very people you helped. Take care

picture perfect

Thursday, November 10, 2011

When we pose for a picture we smile and we do the same when the weight goes down. Our Heads are high, nice smile, dress to impress so just because the scale refuses to move wer all mad at the world. So where did all the sunshine go? Do our emotions cling to the scale? It should not control our attitude towards our lives or what others may think. Just stepping on the scale is a step towards freedom. I shall not make this simple task seem like a burden in my life and be cranky for the rest of my day when I dont like the results. May god grant me the serenity to ACCEPT the things that I cannot change, the COURAGE to change the things I can and the WISDOM to know the difference.


Is my scale working?

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I have tried so many Diets (slim fast,Atkins, crazy methods that just blew money away) but the scale is moving downwards. So surprised I cant believe it. I'm still in denial that this is happening. People are noticing and no family support. They always think if you dont look fat then your not healthy. If your skinny your sick. If you dont eat evrythin from your plate then somethin is wrong with you. Will have to shop for new clothes. I hate shopping easpecially when you walk into a store and the clerk says 'We have a plus size section If you need anythin'. Well I'm 34 yrs old and I dont want to b a plus size anymore. So I'm 168 lbs which brings me from obese to overweight (BMI). This is totally great. ITs been 38 days on my candida diet and its been HELL . THe devil keeps saying " one little bite wont harm you' and I would tell him YES IT WILL. So I have changed my diet. Increase my exercise from none to two days a week (weekends but still working it).So when they use the term' its a jungle out there'. IT really is. Meaning you have to take account for you in a fat world. Try to survive as long as you can.

    Keep up the good work! My husband is somewhat supportive. He is great about excersinging with me, but still eats kinda bad.. But my family they are terriable! I think it is just jealousy, that I am doing so much for myself, and they haven't gotten to that point yet. Satan is going to tempt you and so is your family with all sorts of junk this holiday season, keep strong!

Lose it or die

Thursday, October 27, 2011

When people ask me what I'm doing to loose weight I'm so embarrassed to tell them that my doctor said so and its not by choice. Yes I joined SP in January so it was my my idea that I must get healthy before something bad happens to me and along my journey it did. It has been a total wake up call for me. I have to be deprived from certain foods to get healthy again. I do miss them and being an emotional eater makes it harder for me. I have come to control my urges,eat healthy in front of a junk food crowd and be criticised for it. Its even harder when you go to the grocery and there's easy to reach snacks by the cashier prepared for weaklings like me. Cooking and shopping for kid's meals and snacks and having all the self control in the world . Yes I do hate myself for eating my way to death. However living to see my kids grow up is enough encouragement for me to eat healthy.
