I weighed in initially at 225 and then crept up to over 230. I am now weighing in at 224.6. Yea! I have been using the recipes on spark and I have subscribed to Cooking Light - I absolutely love this magazine! Now that I am living without my husband, I have rediscovered my love for cooking. I am not eating out all the time. I feel better. And, what I think the most important part is, I love what I am eating and don't feel like I am on a diet! I do still have the occasional craving for fast food, but I think after years of being depressed, living in a bad situation, and eating badly, somehow, and I don't know if this is possible, I got psychologically addicted to this food. I need to break myself of this. Stepping on the scale and seeing results is a good motivator. My dad has been staying with me and he is dieting too so that is a good motivator. I am afraid of what does happen when he goes back home and I am just cooking for myself and am allowed to pig out since no one is watching. Will I go back to hit the drive thru? Will I give in to temptation? I hope not. I really want to be healthier. Need people to stop by for healthy home cooked meals. :)

I have been sick for 5 days now. Feeling better than I have been feeling, but jeez, this is the worst I have felt in quite a while. :( Have a respiratory infection, sore throat and had a fever for a few days. On antibiotics and doing much better, but it has thrown off everything - food tracking, diet, hydration, medications, etc. Ready to be back on track. Tomorrow is a new day. On the plus side, since I have been sick, I haven't been eating too much. Maybe I lost a little weight. I'll check in the morning. :)
My dad is coming to visit as well. Stressed a little about this. Wanted to make sure house was perfect. I think it will be ok. My husband has been coming over to help clean and help me while I haven't felt well. Dad comes tomorrow with his girlfriend who I am meeting for the first time - hope that turns out ok. I am then on a plane to Madison on Tuesday for training for a couple days. They will be here when I get back, hopefully not bored to death. :)
Hope everyone has a good week!

I have lost a few pounds (although my ticker won't show it since I gained some after my initial weigh in), am doing better about tracking my food and goals and am generally feeling a little better about myself. I think I am also getting used to being by myself again. It has almost been a month since my husband has moved out. I think that has also helped. It has been pretty bad for a while. I have agreed to go out with him tomorrow evening - dinner and a movie. It's our anniversary. It is kinda sad for me I guess. I suppose it will be nice to go out. I'd like sushi. :) Sad that it isn't really an anniversary for us. Maybe he thinks it is, not sure. For me, it's just a reminder of what should have been. Tomorrow I will try to be good calorie-wise. No crap at the movie theater! But, I would like some sushi and miso soup. I'll have to look up calories beforehand. :)

Yesterday was wasted with a migraine and then I slept in today. Still not feeling my best. I hate migraines and I get them all too often. I am hoping that now that my husband has moved out, stress will be reduced and maybe they will happen with less frequency. Or maybe that is wishful thinking. Seeing my neurologist again on Wednesday. Seems like medications don't work very well.
It would have been nice to have time to continue getting my house back together. I am still working on getting things cleaned up after his move out. Getting an estimate for new carpet today. Since I don't have furniture in spare bedrooms, seems like a good time now and the carpet is so bad. Hopefully, they show up soon. I'm wanting to try a new spark recipe tonight. :)

Yesterday was a bad day. My husband came over to pick up the last of his stuff and to get the cats. Tension was high. I ate horrible food all day long. Today was a new day. I didn't get up as early as I liked, but oh well. I have been very frustrated with work, but didn't take it out on my body today by eating bad food. I had a great salad for lunch and tried the Flat Out pizza recipe on here for dinner (very tasty). I did snack on some Triscuits, but they are my weakness. I figure I could have worse weaknesses right? Still have some housecleaning to do and it's getting late which is stressing me out a bit. I am excited because tomorrow, I will have furniture in my living room and office again! That, I think, will make me feel a little more human.
