The surgeons office called and i am scheduled to have surgery Monday afternoon to remove my gallbladder that has been bothering me for over a year ! i will be happy to not have the daily pain but i am just starting to get back on track with my weight loss & hope i will be able to resume light exercise not too long after the surgery , nothing hurts the weight loss effort more than being immobile for weeks . i am also a bit nervous since i have never had surgery before and hope not to be at the hospital very long , i am keeping a positive outlook that all will go well and i will be back sparking asap !!!!!

I guess restarting my meal plan & exercise the week before thanksgiving is not the smartest thing i have done or is it ? I really don't think thanksgiving dinner has to be a bad thing , why do i say that ? I have a plan !!!! i am going to make sure there are lots if different veggies to choose from & a large salad , i am making the stuffing so i can make it less fatning by using low fat ingredient & whole wheat bread . We have decided with all the food we are serving we do not need desserts ( the kids don't know yet ) . as long as i watch my portions i should be ok , last year i did not gain any weight during the holiday season actually i lost weight . I did it once & i can do it again !
We are working hard this year to teach the kids about healthy eating & portion control , one of our issues is not to get the kids to eat salad but to limit their use of salad dressing , my step daughter on more than one occasion has grabbed the salad dressing for a second time drowning her salad in it & then dumping a bunch on her potatoes( she is really sneaky because she know she is not supposed to ) Kids will be kids, but we are making progress ! oh that reminds me of the time the decided to put chocolate syrup in their cereal , we have not had the stuff in the house since ! LOL
The last couple of days we have been getting rid of all the bad/ snack food in the house & have decided not to buy any more , my big problem is the way grocery stores sell their stuff , there is nothing wrong with having the occasional bag of chips , but they sell them around here 4 for 5.00 so our stupid reasoning is why would i pay 2.00 for 1 when i can have 4 for 5.00 !!!! BECAUSE WE DON'T NEED 4 BAGS OF CHIPS THAT'S WHY !!!!! lol !!!!! the next few weeks will be the hardest till we get used to our new way of eating , eventually the sugar cravings stop which is nice :) My husband had decided to do this with me this year ( last year i did it alone ) & i guess the kids have no choice !!! LOL
Big victory i would like to tell you about we went fishing this summer & My step son who refuses to eat any type of fish really wanted to go , so i told him if you catch it you have to eat it ! He kept his promise & ate what we caught , now he has decided that trout is good , so we just tell him every white fish is trout !!! LOL he's actually curious about trying more fish & seafood , he does not always eat much but at least he is eating it !!!! Yay !!!!
if any of you have any advice on how to deal with picky eaters ( my step son ) or how to keep the portions under control (my step daughter) it would be greatly appreciated :) it makes it really hard when we are pushing one kid to eat more only to tell the other they cannot have seconds or even thirds.
Hope everyone is having a great day !!!!!!

This morning in woke up and told myself no more denial , get on that scale & see my actual weight ! i had reset my weight on monday , i guessed where i thought i was by how my clothes had changed sizes . i was going to wait till monday to see how far off i was , but this morning i got up and said waiting till monday is not going to change things you need to know now so you can start today no more waiting !!!!! i got on the scale & closed my eyes , after a min i looked down & was surprised to see i was 20 pounds off !!! i had convinced myself i was 20 pound heavier than i actually was !!! i am still 5 pounds lower than when i started last year . This time i am going to take it slower , last year i was on a mad dash to loose as much as possible because of the wedding , i was sparking , in biggest looser at work , and my sister in laws all started Weight Watchers and everyone was comparing their loss to mine all the time , it was too much pressure , after the wedding i felt like i could live again i had felt soooo deprived , i told myself ill take 2 weeks off , well 2 weeks turned into 4 which turned into 5 months , there were changes at work ( I'm gone 12hrs a day now ) & family issues & i am waiting for gallbladder surgery and in pain most of the time, i was told it will be at least another 4 1/2 months to see a surgeon :( But i am not going to let all that defeat me , i will do this but at my own pace this time .

Here i am , starting over again from scratch , i told myself i would not let myself gain back all the weight i lost & i did ! I have not weighed myself in months , i just can't do it ! I had to go buy new clothes because none of my jeans fit . i am totally uncomfortable in my body ! I told my husband over the weekend no more junk in the house , i worked out last night for the first time in months ! i brought a healthy lunch , i am officially starting over ! i have to make myself a priority !
All Summer i have been working & away from the house 12 hrs a day , dealing with family issues that i should not have to deal with & i am awaiting surgery and in pain most of the time . These issues have caused the workouts and eating plan to totally disappear :(
It's time to get back on track ! So now i have to find the courage to get on the scale so i can reset all my goals . I can do it ! no excuses !
