Have you ever seen the women who live on the Gold Coast? Let's just say they do not carry plus sizes in their stores. It is unheard of to see a fatty walking around. Plus, most of the women barely eat so you won't find any super high carbs on the menus. So that has been good for me. Seeing a more healthy lifestyle and feeling empowered since I have so many good choices.
I have lost a few pounds by being in West Palm Beach the last two months only because of the Sauna atmosphere and the lack of supply of foods that I am addicted to. I have partnered up with someone who is trying to lose weight and will be back home in two weeks.
I am going to commit to track my calories for two week and to do physical activity at least 30 minutes everyday.
Wishing all of you a successful two weeks.

I fixed a carrot cake and a cherry pie this week since everyone is off work or coming home for the Holiday. I just finished wiping out the last piece of pie and have ate, not nibbled at the carrot cake all week.
I did it mindlessly, like a thief in the night. Why I ask, Why? That will be my obsession for the day.

This week has been a real upset of my fantasy about the first week of Spring and my fantasy about weight loss !
I started off sloshing around in the two inches of wet snow. Even in the snow the birds get it, they know it is Spring. I heard chirping and calls even amidst the snowfall. It gave me a real thrill to hear those sounds. It dashed my hopes that the hoping for the trees, that they will have their first buds, may be a bit premature.
The chirping also kicked-off my dogs nervous anxiety about the world around him. When he heard those calls and chirping, he quickly wrapped himself around one of my legs and hid between them in fright. I comforted him. Then took him into our home and began playing with him to relieve his fears.
So at that moment I realized: I have been obsessing about other facets of my life and have not been focusing on me. I focus on Spring, my Daughter who is grown, or I worry about my Husband,the dog, my business.
Then I thought, if I could only channel a 1/3 of he energy on me and let myself be happy, instead of self-destructing I can find my weight loss goal.
Today, I begin that focus!
Does anyone else go that extra mile for others and not for themselves?

I started taking a Probiotic pill about 45 days ago. It was an off the shelf, "One a Day" product. I felt weird. I saw my Doctor and he didn't see the symptoms as anything other than my immune system working efficintly and he suggesed it could be Menopause. Aww I thought its something else.
I felt like I was running a fever everyday. I checked it, I wasn't. It made my glands swell, and it was noticeable my lymph nodes under my arms were "hot" lets just say. Well I got to tinking what have I done differently. I gave up soda. That didn't make it stop. So, the only thing left that was different were the Probiotics. I stopped taking them.
Magic....all systems are back to normal.
I wonder if that was te problem. I stopped taking the and the symptoms stopped. I miss the regularity of the effect it had on my whole digestive system. Is or has anyone else experienced the same thing?

Oh my was I optimistic. I still am optimistic. The approach, was good on the 13th and distraction worked. I did get anxious but not overly anxious where I thought my skin would melt away from me having the hot itchy feeling.
On the 14th I relaxed my rules because it was Valentine's day and my Husband gets very excited about sweets. We went out to the Steak place, I did great making healthy choices with the entree. It was then dessert time and we split a piece of the German Chocolate Cake and I was trilled. I didn't feel guilty, but satisfied.
I have done great the last two nights otherwise...zero chocolate!!!! Zero Chocolate kisses, pieces, bars... Nothing and I didn't even think about it.
I instead read how to improve my Word Press blog in the Instruction book I bought this week and before I realized it ... it was bed time.
I am still going to put in place a committment to the stop behaviors I put on my initial blog onthe 12th. I got two really good comments that helped me immensuely. One, someone cared enough to take time out of their day to give me support. Two, other people deal with these same issues and I a NOT, alone.
