Not Thinking

Monday, November 10, 2008

I got this bad habit of not thinking. I know how to eat. I know how to order when eatting out. I drink plenty of water. Since I started this new chapte in my life, I've taken much better care of myself. When I go food shopping, I make sure I m not hungry & I do not buy sugar filled junk food(much to my husband's brokenheart). MY PROBLEM is sometimes when I'm visiting people or @ that rare family gathering, even @ church functions or meetings, I will pick something up & start munching without thinking. It's like I go on automatic pilot, I just don't think. I find myself eatting potatoe chips instead of the fruit. emoticon

    When I first joined SP, somebody in one of the team threads suggested a way for people who love potato chips to stop eating them. Take a bag of potato chips, pour into a blender and liquefy. I haven't tried it, salty things are not my downfall, but what I read from others it works. The yuck it turns into turns you off potato chips.

Stick with it and eventually even at the family or church gatherings you will choose healthy over unhealthy. You will probably start taking healthy dishes and they will be received with YUMMY! That's what happens to me now.

It's My Turn

Sunday, November 09, 2008

Well I'm new here n I m tryin 2 figure it all out. I m basically the CAREGIVER. U know the type, always taking care of every1 n running out of time 2 take care of self. I have 3 grown children, over the yrs I took in a few run aways, I even had a foster child, n until recently was raising my 3yr old grandbaby. Unfortunately I lost both my mom & her mom to cancer, took care of both of them, I m now taken care of my father who is disabled(his wife left him last time he got sic). I've had bad health for the last decade, suffer from depression, Well thanks 2 my beloved hubby (9yrs although he was my 1st love , we found each other again after 13 yrs), I m now startin 2 take care of myself. I stated walkin a mth ago, this wk I start exercise also. At my heaviest I was 303lbs, its went up & down over the yrs. I m now 265lbs. I don't know how 2 put myself 1st, my hubby spoils me. Sometimes I just think it's 2 make up 4 the past. I can now say IT'S MY TURN, but can I really do it.
