Weigh in day

Friday, November 07, 2008

emoticon After all my whining yesterday I had a 2# loss and am very happy. It was what I ate and not how much.
Almost all my new pans I bought as my reward came yesterday. I still have an 8" skillet coming. The large 12" skillet is very nice but wasn't so pleased with pan set. But after I thought about it I was ok.The pan set is very light and didn't like that at first.But after I thought about it I changed my mind.Some days my hands hurt very bad and it will be much easier to use this lighter pans. I have always believed you get what you pay for and these were cheap. i put my old ones in a box but haven't got rid of them.We will wait til I have used these awhile. I will make some soup in them later today.
It is a beautiful sunny day today.I was getting tired of dreary cloudy days. Looking forward to a better week coming up.

  


Somewhat frustrated

Thursday, November 06, 2008


My weight is up and it is frustrating because I didn't eat a lot of Halloween candy.And have not been in a nice restaurant in 12 weeks. I am starting that deprived feeling.You all know what I mean.When you give up the good stuff you love for the sake of losing and you gain. I have eat more canned soup than normal and have been above 1500 cal a few days.But never go over 2000 cal so I shouldn't have a gain. I am hoping it is just fluid which is a possibility. I have been wearing my wedding ring and for some reason I took it off before I went to bed.Good thing I did as hands are a little swollen this morning.Another sign of fluid. I am not looking forward to weighing in tomorrow. I have only had 1 small gain in 12 weeks so I can survive another small gain. I am just afraid it won't be a small one.
The 2 books and 1 video I ordered for hubby to give me should arrive today. I don't get them until I lose another 20#.That may be awhile. Two of pans I ordered should be here also but set hasn't been sent yet. That is what I bought myself for losing 40#. I need to clean out old lids and some of old pans I don't use. I don't have many as I got rid of a bunch some time ago. I actually only have 3 pots and 2 skillets.I do also have 2 iron skillets but only use the larger one to bake in. At least I no longer reward myself with food.
The hawk was in back yard yesterday but wasn't able to get camera on him fast enough.He dove into bamboo tree which is always full of birds.He will be back. I would like to get one good picture of him. I got a couple before but they weren't too good.
I took a piece of deer meat out last night.Hubby's boss always gives us some from time to time.Usually at end of year when it is time to hunt again. I never looked to see what was in it and there isn't much.Most is marked sausage which I will use for chili and something wrapped in a corn husk which I have no idea what it is.
Well I better get my shower and fix breakfast. Hubby brought me home a big bag of tomatoes yesterday.I have been eating a lot of tomato as they are low in calories.

    If you have been eating a lot of canned soup, then you might have too much sodium. It sounds counter-intuitive, but more water will help flush out the excess sodium and get things back to normal. Again with the fresh tomatoes, make sure you don't put too much salt on them. Good luck and hang in there.

A new day for us all

Wednesday, November 05, 2008

I have been checking out others blogs I realized I hadn't done mine. emoticon
We have a new president and hopefully things will turn around.
I have been struggling to get the scale to go down and not doing so good. I can not see any way I will have a loss and am hoping for only a small gain or maybe no gain.I still have 2 days. I don't mind too much if I don't lose but I don't want to gain. When we gain we can't help but think about things we are giving up and wonder if it is worth it.
It is so dreary outside and that is always depressing. But it is a new day and a chance to do better

  


Vote It's a privilege

Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Just got back from voting for Barack Obama. I know a lot of people do not want to tell who they voted for but I feel if you vote for someone you should be proud enough to admit who you voted for. He was not my first pick as I truly thought Hilary would have done a good job.And I think that McCain is a good man at heart but I just think it is a time for change. And with Mc Cain it will stay the same.Plus I do not care for Palin
Altho I feel people should say who they voted for I don't think people should be arguing and getting angry because someone doesn't agree with them. Everyone has the right to their opinion. I was sadden to hear of a relative that was extremely nasty to someone who liked Palin and had a chance to meet her and shake her hand. I thought it was great. I do not like Palin but she is part of history and I would have loved to meet her and shake her hand. I am ashamed that my relative acted that way. I foolishly I guess think adults should be able to discuss politics without it becoming a battle.
Our voting place was so well organized. I was very impressed. We were in and out in maybe 10 minutes. And it was a big turnout.
But do vote for whoever you think is the best person. Isn't America a wonderful country.

Did very bad on eating yesterday.Daily calories hit an all time high.Not good. Have to get myself in gear if I want a loss by friday.
I have to go get blood work today so can't eat til after I get it done.Hubby is coming at ten to take me.
I made the candy corn popcorn yesterday. Made a smaller batch. I made 8 balls that were about 158 cal each. I only ate one and wrapped the rest and put in freezer.Don't know how they will freeze.If you really like sweets like I do they were ok but they weren't real great. Plus too much trouble to make.Messy and hard to mix everything together. Plus popcorn did not stay crisp. I won't make it again. Had hubby take rest of candy corn out to his van and he is taking it to work.Had to get it out of house or I would have eaten it all.
Will be concentrating on decreasing my calories back to where they should be.My night eating is still a problem even tho I plan calories for night I need to cut back.
There is no easy way to do this and it is very easy to let our guard down. And we can't let that happen as we know we can put weight back on in a blink. Not fair but thats fact.
