Days 1, 2, & 3

Thursday, January 03, 2008

Can't believe this is the end of day 3 already. The first 2 went very well. Today (3) was somewhat harder. I kept wanting to eat.

I do feel good about getting some projects started and accomplished. Then again I look around and see all that needs to be done and I feel overwhelmed!

Once I get my Christmas stuff put away, I think I'll be able to take on some of these other projects and I am forming a plan of where to start. Already I have a project that will delay my other plans. The husband of my dear friend who died recently called last night and wants me to take all her craft supplies. I couldn't refuse so will be getting that next week. I hope to pass it on to other crafting friends.

Keeping busy will be a help in keeping me away from food!

    Oh my goodness, Joan! How funny! Just when you've determined to clear the extra things away, someone you can't refuse offers you another batch of crafting items. Sorry, but I just had to laugh at that one!

I've missed you and I'm going to email you and Marcie after I finish this note.

Good luck on your 21 day challenge. I'm on day 14 of mine, so far so good.

A New Start

Monday, December 31, 2007

It will soon be 2008 - a new year and a new beginning for me. With DH's passing, I am facing a whole new set of challenges and am still working on the old weight/health one. The holidays have been hard, but the kids have been helpful. Thank God for my large caring family!

I've set my goals and am ready to start anew with the food and exercise. I am also starting on decluttering my life and surroundings. I am working on setting a budget and looking to see if I can manage to stay in my own home or what will be the best plan of action. This uncertainty has been keeping me awake at night. I need to let go of the worries and trust that it will all work out. Spring will come and all will be new again.

  Hi Joan.

I just read your blog. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I loss my dad 5 years ago and my husband Tom just lost his mom in Sept. I have seen the trial that my mom and father inlaw have and are going through. I know what it is like to lose an immediate parent and a parent that I couldn't have ask for anyone better to be my mother inlaw. But I have never lost a spouse. My heart is with you and I will keep you in my prayers.

Hugs
Mary

Time Flies - Day 16!

Thursday, September 06, 2007

Can't believe how fast time flies! I've been forgetting to write here. It's already Day 16 and for the most part, things are going well. I found when I don't eat for instance I had to fast for a blood test, I don't feel very hungry, but later in the day it seems to catch up with me and I could eat everything in sight. When that happened, I really tried to make the right choices and to watch the portions. I think it pays to eat a fairly regular times, eat sitting down and slowly and to only eat until I feel comfortable. These are the habits I am working on and they are helping.

    Good job dealing with your cravings late in the day. I'm glad the challenge is having an impact on your eating habits and lifestyle.

8/30/07 Day 9

Thursday, August 30, 2007

Weighed in this morning and am down 1.5 lb. which brings me back to my lowest since joining SP. Waist measurement is also down by one inch. It's great to see results. I haven't been missing foods, but there are a few times that I just want to put something in my mouth - must be for some emotional reason. I need to try to figure out what the reasons are for wanting to do that. I think it will help me to recognize what those feelings are when I know it isn't hunger. I also need to use more vegetables all day and to limit my grain/bread intake.

    Congratulation on the weight loss! Kinda makes it all worthwhile doesn't it? You could print those figures up real big and tape them up next to your goals. Pat yourself on the back. You're doing great.

Day 8

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

I had this all written out and forgot to post it. So I will try to remember what it was.

This day was a bit harder as I wanted to keep on eating even though I was comfortably full. It was a frustrating day in that I was unable to do the things I had planned. Instead I ended up baby sitting a 3 yr. old GD while her mommy caught up on some needed sleep. Life seems to be full of interruptions and short on time. But tomorrow is another day. And I think I finally put a stop to my feeling of needing to eat now. A big glass of water helped.

    Nothing like a specific commitment to get one over those inevitable bumps in the road. BTW, I really like the black and white photo of London, at least that's where I think it is. You are over a third of the way to your goal, GF!

    A whole week on your plan --wow!-- you're doing soooooooo well. Days like today do happen. They can be so frustrating. But you got through it! And you have been doing so well. Keep it up -- we're rooting for you. RAW! raw! raw!
