I just read a blog about credit card fiasco's and added my own 2 cents. These companies are on the way to extinction!! Here it is!
I can sure understand why people want to get rid of their credit cards these days. Those Companys are ruthless. I lost my job the end of last year, after working almost 26 years, and lived on Unemployment and my savings up until 2 mos ago. I now have no income, and I tried to explain to 2 of these high interest credit cards, that I was in the interim, as for getting my next income check. And those suckers don't care, I am still getting nailed for late payment fee (needless to say, I was never behind until now) and they are closing my accounts. I was floored at their behavior. Do these credit card companys know if they keep treating the "good paying" consumer this way, because of a minor setback, that they will lose us, and their company and their own jobs? Geeesh if only.

Today was good, I actually got off my duff, and walked a bit. I am not getting enough exercise. Because I hate it.
But know I need it. No matter how much I cut back on calorie intake, I still need some activity. I will just dry up and blow away, maybe skinny, but not very strong.
I do know it goes hand in hand, and geeze how much tv can one watch? anyway? I actually am, getting sick of it.
and too much time on the computer too. I need a life! lol

I have never been so happy with a plan, like I have here on Sparkpeople. I feel better, I look better, I do more, and I am getting back my strength, and clear skin.
But.......... sigh....... I have been telling friends, and family, and of course they see the results. All about Sparkpeople, and how it's turned my life around. They are like, ok I will check it out.
That's as far as it goes.
I am thinking, they don't want to give up their lifestyle, of eating fattening, sugary, calorie and carb high foods. No they don't. Or they would put more effort into seeing what Sparkpeople is all about. This is the most effective plan, I have ever been on, in my life. All you have to do
is follow the guidelines, that simple. That's why it's so hard for me to fathom, why they don't want to do it?
I worry about their health. I know they would be so more self-confident, and happy if they chose to do something about it. I am offering this website. I cannot do it for them, wish I could, but they have to do it for themselves. I hope as I keep up my journey, and lose the weight, and keep building my self-confidence, they might consider it. Here's hoping.

I am so ready for them. I am going to decorate and bake, and have a great ol time. Because, I am not going to mess up my progress by indulging in the bad foods. No I am not. But all of my friends want me to bake, lol. You know I think I can, and it will not affect me. So I will still make a batch of my most loved fudge. And I won't touch it. Because, I don't want to. How's that?
I just talked to my Brother, and last thing he said before we hung up, I need you to bake me a cake Sis. No occasion, he just likes my buttercream frosting. I swear, if we could add weight through our skin, I would be doomed, because everyone still wants me to bake for them, including my former boss. And what's really cool, is they know I can, and I will make it for them, not for me. So there, Holidays! Take that, I will not be defeated by you. Mark my words. Another reason I am asked to do these things, is that I am an artist with my foods, I like them to stand out, be inviting, and all my friends and family love that. My last endeavor was some little frog truffles, I did for a bake sale at work. I didn't make enough of these, but they were pretty intricate, and time consuming so I only made a dozen, lol, they didn't survive the first 5 minutes, because everyone wanted to take one home to their spouse. But I love to do it, it is my passion.

I have been asked by one of the members of Sparkpeople what I eat. I would allow my fellow sparkers to see my nutrition page, but I include my journal, and I put some more private thoughts on that. So here goes
Breakfast.... usually is cereal, I try to have very nutritious, fiber cereals, I like the kashi puffed cereal, or I like the generic brand bran, which has no hydrogenated ingredients, where all bran did. With a cup of soymilk, I like silk vanilla light. And of course a fruit, to sweeten. Most of the time its a banana I try to eat one every day for potassium. Once or twice a week, usually on Sunday I have an egg white omelet, with sour cream topping and chopped tomatoes on top, filling varies, I do like goat cheese and baby spinach, mostly. I change it up to not get bored with any of my food items. And I have my 1 cuppa coffee in the a.m. with silk creamer.
Lunch.... is usually my protein, I eat it early in the day. Either chicken breast, or turkey lean, or fish, or beans, usually homemade for the sodium control. Canned beans even rinsed, I cannot figure how much sodium is still there. I try different recipes with my chicken, and fish, my favorite at the moment is pecan crusted, I substitute almonds, oh my, but it is so
delish! And I add a salad, for my roughage, and raw vege needs. I either spritz on a dressing
or use a no fat dressing, or throw some mandarin oranges on it, with some almonds and not use a dressing, but vinaigrette works well with that combo.
Dinner.... is usually my steamed veges, its my smallest meal of the day, and I usually eat around 5, no later than 6 p.m. I have 2 cups steamed, with my still bad ingredient, until I can completely cut it out, and that is my Brummel and Brown. I love the taste, but it has bad ingredients. I have purchased Smart balance, so we will see.
then I have my snacks, 1 being another fruit, I only eat 2 a day, most fruit is high in sugar, so I feel 2 are enough for me, sometimes 3. I like Sun chips, good ingredients. And of course my organic popcorn, or I just nosh on raw vege's
And throughout the day, I drink the water. I believe this is what keeps me stable, and not wanting to eat more food. It keeps me full.
And I keep my calories at the low end of my 1200-1550 guidelines. Sometimes I have 100 more, mainly on Sundays, I just add something else, it also keeps my metabolism confused! lol
