Happy New Year to You and to Us! Lets make 2012 the year for great losses and healthier us!
I have to say that since my journey began last year on October 2nd, I have managed to take off 35.8 LBS at a nice pace, low as it should have come off and I had not once set a real goal for myself when I stared however not long ago when someone asked me if I had any goals and I suddenly felt I really would just like to be out of the 260's and into the 250's. It could be 259.9LBS as long as it was not 260...well I am currently 264.4 and while I am happy because I am no longer where I was when I started of 295.8 which really could have been more since at the time I was using my Wii to weigh myself and seemingly when I got my new digital scale I found that my wii was off by +4lbs. I could have been 299.8 which means I was just 2oz shy of the BIG 3"s!!!
Anyway I am going strong with what I now believe by all measured and accurate accounts is really a 39.8 LB loss to date, however I am currently on the "New New - Digital Scale" 264.2 which is 1.9 LBS up from from where I was on my last weigh in day. I have not experienced a gain before and I am not about to accept that I have now when I have done everything to not go over my calories, fats and carbs and in most cases these last few days I have not eaten enough which may actually be the problem!
My 4th week into my journey I did actually have a .04 gain though it was when I was wearing heavy jeans on my wii and believed that was why the reading showed me that gain! maybe I am just thinking to much about this, and when I wake up later tonight after I get off work today at 6am and get some sleep, perhaps I will be the 259.9 I would be happy with and could say I met my 1st set goal, and or I will just be happy if I see the scale back down to at least 262.3 which is where it was last weigh-in last Sunday!
Still NOTHING is going to stop me!!!
I hope that all of you reading this know I really wish you all well this year on your journeys, and I hope that were all lighter, healthier and much happier for all the great losses and new friends we have made along the way.

Well if this is not a lesson learned for me about eating something I just knew was bad for me then I don't know what else could have happened to me to wake me up and realize I need to go on my 1st instincts regardless of how bad I want to make someone else feel good for their time slaving over something in the kitchen.
Hubby just had to go and make his famously delicious Sausage and Ground Beef Lasagna for an office party at his place of work last night, and while I told him to take it all and not leave any behind he came home with some for my mom yet there was more than enough left when I asked him if so and to warm me up a piece. I just knew I shouldn't have but I did and now I am just not feeling well at all. I have heartburn which I have not had in a few weeks now not to mention the other end is suffering and the only good thing is it seems to want out of me more than I do as well my pedometer is getting quite the workout as I run back and forth to the bathroom.
Part of me was just feeling bad for dear hubby who stood all morning when he should have been sleeping and cooked this beautiful yummy looking lasagna and I did not even take the time to taste it. I thought if I told him to take it all in the dish he baked it in to work that it would not slide around while he delivered it to his work place and would not possibly make a mess in my car.
My mom who waited all day to eat some was upset when I told her I made him take it all to work with him, so I asked him if there was any left to bring her home some. I had no idea when I asked him later on in the evening which is like my lunch hour since I am a night worker to warm me up a small piece that there would actually be any leftover do so. Now I hate myself for eating it. Not sure of the nutrition facts but chose someones recipe for what I think was perty much the same and its 569 calories, 21 grams of carbs, 39 grams of fat though a healthy heaping 34 grams of protein I am just feeling like I wish Lasagna of any kind was never invented!
I know sausage is bad for me, why did I not realize and or remember he makes it using both ground beef and sausage DUH, figure I should have stopped after the 2nd bite when I did realize. NOoo not I, it was delicious, and I ate the whole piece even though a nice small portion from what I would normally have eaten before starting my journey towards a healthier smaller me! Big deal it did not make me any less ill!
So anyway that is all I wanted to say. I hope now that this has happened to me I have learned my lesson and I wont ever again try to make hubby feel good for cooking things not only bad for himself but obviously extremely bad for me. Just because he can't learn to stay away from fatty foods and he wants to stand all day and slave over the stove to make them for a party or otherwise, I certainly don't have to eat them and if my body says don't do it long before I have even put it on a plate or the 1st bite in my mouth then I best listen to what its saying to me or else its going to make me pay in a bad way for not listening to it!
I am actually learning what I can and can't eat. I have noticed in a big way what I should not put into my mouth and I can't wait until I am feeling better so I can not only workout but I can then focus on what I am going to eat for my next healthy meal and you can bet your butt it wont be Lasagna let alone sausage of any kind ever again.
Still feeling Ill
