food for thought

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

why is it that everyone calls it food for thought? well here is my food for thought my daughter is coming home after being gone for over 7 mo visiting family up and down the west cost. several things have gone on scents she has been gone. one my girlfriend and have gotting closer then we have ever been, there is no real big fighting and we just works together. it reminds me every day why I fell in love with my girlfriend in the first place. the other 2 things that big have happen in are house is that my girlfriends parents have moved in cuz her mom is getting up there in age and was getting hard for her to take care of herself when her husband was at work. and last change in my house but the one I find most important my son has come out of his box. he more open and has grown so much.

so now my daughter after turning most of my family agents her and not wanting her back, she is coming home. so here my question or ask for help. how do I keep my house the same? how do I keep out the crazy? she hurts her brother if she gets a min. she has fits when the focse is not on her. she has what the doctors call the worse case of ODD they have every seen.

and for the ones that don't know what ODD is here is it is all short and sweet.

as an ongoing pattern of anger-guided disobedience, hostility, and defiant behavior toward authority figures that goes beyond the bounds of normal childhood behavior. Children suffering from this disorder may appear very stubborn and often angry. Common features of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) include excessive, often persistent anger, frequent temper tantrums or angry outbursts, as well as disregard for authority. Children and adolescents with ODD often purposely annoy others, blame others for their own mistakes, and are easily disrupted. Parents often observe more rigid and irritable behaviors than in siblings.[2] In addition, these young people may appear resentful of others, and when someone does something they don't like they prefer revenge over more sensitive solutions.

so now any thoughts?

by the way we are on day 3 of keeping track and working with each other to loses weight and its working out great. we even went out walking a little. I feel great and I can tell my girlfriend feels good to I can see it in her face.

Sunday, December 29, 2013

only 2 more days and we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014. its times like this that make me think about my life. and were it is heading. I think everyone takes a hard look at were they are and were they are going. I am a great mother and see it everyday in my kids faces. they are turning out to be great people. the one thing I think of very much is how I still weight 200 lbs. I have been trying for years and still not got it off. I am hoping 2014 brings some changes. in the passed I had no support this year I hope my girlfriend stick what to she says and supports me with the weight loss. we will see. and I will try my best to blog every day. Nope not going to have my girlfriends help. I just had a fight with her about what we eat. She wants to go vegain and I don't. I told her I support her and will fix her food for her, but I will not eat that way. She got mad. Any ideas how I do this on my own. I have tryed for years and I'm still 200 lbs

    hmmm I've never tried eating vegan before. Guess it wouldn't hurt to try it for a trial period. It could be just the change my body needs to start losing weight. May help get some toxins out to the system and curb some cravings.

Time for a New Year

Thursday, December 26, 2013

so why is it that every time the new year comes to ge one thing people put on there new years resution is to lose weight. I don't know why people do what they do I just can speck for me. I have been trying for years to lose the same 80lbs that I still have on me. every time I start to lose the weight something seems to go wrong and I give up. earthier I get busy with farm work that I don't have time, or I get made fun of and told I will never loss the weight. or my one single biggest problem is living with my in laws. they don't like the healthy cooking so they buy unhealthy snacks. and I can tell you now I have not made it to the point of will power and say no. I try I really do but its like putting candy in front of a baby and saying don't eat that. RIGHT just not working. so how am I to do it? how am I to get the weight off. how is this year going to be different? what can I do to make it better. anyone got any ideas I am open to them now.

Living with the IN-LAWS

Thursday, October 10, 2013

i need some with trying to lose weight and living with the IN-LAWS. my in laws moved in my house cuz they had no were to go . well that ok my girlfriend didn't get to see them much so this will give her the time to spend with them. i never knew how hard it would be to have so many heads in the same house. when its my paycheck and my money comes in not much is said to what is bought for the house as in the means of food. i buy it, it gets cooked, if i dont want junk food in the house just dont buy it. now here comes the problem once a month my in laws get there food stamps and want to use them to help with food. that nice and all but then when we go shopping they spend most of it on junk food. things i should no eat. when i talk to my girlfriend about it all she tells me is that they dont have much to help out with the house so i should be happy that they are helping out. i am happy they want to help but i dont want the junk in the house. i find when its in front of my face i eat it.
and this problem alone makes me mad. how is it 15 years ago i could walk away from drugs"when i got pregent" but i cant walk away from food? how is it that food has more hold over me then drugs? i am always told buy people its imposable to walk away from drugs with out help. but that is what i did 15 years ago i just turned my back on drugs and walked away and that it was so easy but i cant walk away from food? what makes my problem worse is my girlfriend says if we could use the help and it makes them feel good but then because its there money i dont get to always pick what i want and dont want in the house. but once its in the house its "food" seems to have more control over me . how do i et them help out without seeming like a A** when they bring food i my house i dont like and how do i work on telling my mind no?

    Have them tell you some of their favorite recipes and meals, pick the healthier ones, then make a list of the ingredients and ask them to get the stuff on the list so that you can fix those dishes for them. Worth a shot.
