I couldn't even get through the first set of 17 days on the 17 Day Diet. I am a loser, and not in the good way! I have decided I just can't do diets. I'm done. It's too much for me to have to follow a set menu, let alone shop for it and cook it. It's just too stressful.
You know what else is stressful? Looking in the mirror and seeing a 45 year old morbidly obese woman who can barely manage keeping the house relatively clean, let alone go out and ENJOY LIFE. THAT'S stressful!
I have been obese or morbidly obese since I was around 8 years old. That's too dang long! And I don't feel like I've EVER really enjoyed life. Well, I WANT to enjoy life! I want to enjoy time with my grandbabies! I want to be able to take a little walk up the street without hurting and getting winded. I'd like to be able to actually RUN for once in my life!!!!
So what am I going to do, if I'm done dieting???
I'm going to learn to eat much more healthily and get off my dang butt and exercise!!!! That's what!!
Today, I opened up my brand new Ninja Ultima blender that I got for Christmas, and made my family a fruit smoothie. And I'm going to start having them every day. I also went out and walked for 5 minutes on the treadmill that's been in the garage for almost a year. I know 5 minutes isn't much, but it's all I could do without making myself hurt really bad, which would probably be my excuse not to do it tomorrow. So, small steps!
And NO MORE DANGED DIETS!!!! Life changes! Yes! Perfection? Probably not. But if I can stick with healthy changes 99 percent of the time, then I think I'll be ok!

I haven't done well at keeping track of my foods the past few days. My 1 year old granddaughter was here over the weekend, and I was a little busy. But I did do pretty well at keeping with the right foods. I did a very small little cheat on Friday night. My hubby made homemade pizza and I cut a couple little bites off. It was weird, cause I had been feeling very exhausted and after having those couple bites, I actually felt better. I haven't been having my tea, but other than that, I've been doing good. And, if my old bathroom scales are being truthful, I have lost about 13 lbs! Can you believe it?? I know it can fluctuate, so I"m not going to get to crazy about it, but that makes me feel good!

I want CARBS!!!! *in my best Cookie Monster voice*
I am quite sure that I am a carb addict. No, I don't eat candy bars and donuts. I want NOODLES!!! Ramen Noodles, Egg Noodles, Spaghetti, I don't care, just so long as it's some form of pasta!!!
Why are you laughing??? This is serious withdrawal, folks... ;-)
I know it's only my 2nd day. So, what's your point?? Pffftttt.... I made NO CLAIMS of being strong willed, did I?? No siree Bob.
Hello. My name is Shannon and I'm a carb addict.
Hey, you in the back there.... would you please stop laughing????
All kidding aside, the cravings are badish, but I'm hangin' in there! Only 15 more days to the next cycle!
...I get carbs then, right??

Ok, so I finally decided to actually start the 17 Day Diet today! This is what I look like now. Let's see how different it is at the end of my first 17 days!
I am totally psyched about it! I've done really well so far, and it's almost 7pm. I've only had 2 meals today, though, cause I got up late, which is a matter that needs worked on all by itself. So far, I've only eaten around 450 calories today! Can't say that I burned very many, since I only walked about 10 minutes, but it's a start. I have been feeling so exhausted here lately, though, and just couldn't do any more than that. It's better than nothing. :-)

I really do feel like such a failure now. I get all excited and say "I'm really going to stick with it this time.", and then, here I am, months later. Not a pound lighter. Actually, several heavier.
I've become The Blob.
I am so ashamed of myself that I just want to crawl into a corner somewhere.
Or do I?
I don't want to crawl into a corner. I want to get up and enjoy life! I want to work in the garden. I want to jump on the trampoline with my kids. I want to go jogging, for pity's sake!!!
But I can't do those things if I crawl into a corner, can I? It's not likely.
So, here I am. Again. With the best of intentions.
Isn't the road to H. E. Double Hockey Sticks paved with good intentions??? Yeah, that's what I thought.
So, how do I keep myself on track? Could somebody puleeeeeze tell me this??
Well, either that, or a Spark Mentor could come live with me. What?? There are No Spark Mentors that come live with you??? Geesh!!! LOL
I guess it's up to me. I know there are all sorts of people out there that are wonderfully supportive, but somehow I still feel very alone right now.
I guess I'll just take it one day at a time.
