OMG--5 days!! Who'da thunk it possible???

Monday, February 21, 2011

Almost weigh in day and I am sssoooo wanting to weigh early! I have been on program without fail and the suspense is killing me!! My greatest challenge has been portion control more than anything, but it seems to be going well. I measure/weigh almost all that goes into me and if I can't weigh it, I overestimate to be safe.....I am a very analytical person so the "numbers game" is rather enjoyable. Just keep going one foot in front of the other!!

    That is such a great attitude towards weigh in that for motivating me

    My greatest challenge has been portion control too and exercising.

Like so many others, I am attempting this journey AGAIN! This addiction to food is a very difficult opponent to overcome. I will do it one MEAL at a time, not one day at a time! Wish me well... emoticon

    I do wish you well. It is a never ending battle, but we have to keep trying.

The "first" day

Sunday, January 24, 2010

Well, here I am again--trying to start this journey! Boy, this is almost as hard as arriving at the airport for checkin....do I have any "illegal" items such as twinkies, chocolate peanuts, etc. I just want to leave this "airport" and successfully start my journey. I see my doc tomorrow and I know what she is going to say--my blood sugar is too high! So tell me something I DON'T know. As a nurse, I have suspected this for several months--I have been doing morning finger sticks so the news will not be a surprise. And, it does run in my family--too many pounds on board!!

I would like all the help that I can get. I need to do this or my health is doomed. I need to get out of the gate and take it one step at a time.........
