I had an epiphany today! I understand why I'm so out of whack and being so hungry! The stupid time change!
As I have gotten older, it really messes with me i have noticed. It only took me over a week to figure this out! Something for me to be aware of, obviously.
Some of you noticed that I had lost a couple of pounds. Thank you for the congrats but really it was because I was up 3 pounds so while I am happy the scale is going in the right direction, it feels like less of a victory to lose weight I have already lost.
Let's look at the evidence of the last year. While the blue line is pretty, the yellow one is where I'm supposed to be. Yea,not good. I'm gonna be posting another graph soon. Its gonna be more yellow and more downhill.

I have been so hungry this week! I hate days like that. I have gone over my range every day this week. Some stupid choices that were too high calorie (half a Costco muffin) , some just plain overeating ( did I really need that extra meatball? Did I need cheese on that). ITS REALLY ANNOYING AND IM SICK OF IT!
Somewhere, I will find that I-dont- want -or -need -it- button. Where did I leave it? Can I borrow yours?

So I got myself a fit bit the other day. I really love it and am having fun with it. It is very easy and it tracks my exercise, steps, going up stairs, calories burned and consummed and my sleep patterns which is super interesting. I think it is going too help me fine tune things and hopefully, help me start moving in the right direction. It is very ,motivating.
So I have 2 more weeks left in the first course of ambren. In 2.5 months, I no longer have hot flashes, severe mood swings ( I am a woman so I still have occasional ones!), I am sleeping better and OK I will just say it, less sexual um, issues? I have not lost any weight. At all but that just proves to me my hormones are not the issue...
So I give amberen 5 starts and so far, I'm at 4 stars for the fit bit ultra.

Happy Sunday Veteran's day!
My big news is I got a fit bit Ultra. I had a bit of an issue with the website at first but I got it up and working and have worn it for the last few days. It has been very interesting as I am getting used to it. I walk alot more than I think I do, for one, which is pretty cool. I imagine as I use it more, I will learn alot and I think this will help me fine tune my self so I can move forward and lose the rest of the weight I want to lose.
I went to a racing banquet last night that I planned and I was very happy with how it turned out. I made up a bunch of trivia questions about our club, bought some door prizes and had everyone answering questions during the awards so I got to be the MC and it was a blast. Everyone had comments and jokes and I started handing out tickets when people made me laugh. I got a lot of compliments and some said it was the best one ever (out of 19!) so I am very pleased that everyone had a great time. That was goal.
Today, Frank and I went and saw the new James Bond movie which was pretty good so we had a peaceful day. Back at work tomorrow and can you beleive it is almost thanksgiving?????
I want to know today, what are you going to do DIFFERENT to help you reach your goal.
Mine is my new fitbit.
Let's stay focused, ok? WE all have alot of challenges coming up in the new few weeks and months. Let's be strong, focused and happy.

Hope you had a good week and have something to be looking forward to this week.
I have noticed alot of posts about being thankful this month (challenges, thanksgiving etc).
I think it is really important to be thankful becuase no matter how bad things can be sometimes, there is always something to be thankful for.
I see the coverage of the east coast devastation from the safety of my california home and I cannot imagine what those folks are going through. I have donated to the redcross and I hope you will find a way, however small, to help those who are suffering.
You can always pray or send good thoughts. It doesnt cost a thing but a moment of your time.
Meanwhile, I want to tell you why I am thankful today.
My husband is a great guy. But sometimes, he just blows me away.
Today, we went to walk Stitchy. When we got out of the truck, he had a shovel. I asked him, "what are you gonna do, kill me and bury me? LOL." He said no (thank goodness) and he started chopping and shoveling tumbleweeds that had been growing over our path. For a quarter of a mile, I walked behind my hubby as he cleared a path so I didnt get scratchy and stickery.
I mean, really? How adorable is that? How charming and thoughtful and well, MANLY is that? I felt like a dainty little cherished princess.
After the quarter mile, the area we walk opens up and we are clear. He carried the shovel the whole time cause he said, "ya never know!" He looked pretty sexy carrying that shovel today and I told him so!
Im thankful to have the kind of man who would do these things for me and I want to be the kind of woman who would equally do something to make his life easier. I dont think I was for awhile. I was too focused on me and I was too caught up in my own head.
Not anymore. Starting this weight loss has been so much more, it has started me on my path, free of tumbleweeds, to living and enjoying my life.
Today, I want to know what you are thankful for. Lay it on me.
