BYE BYE TO ANOTHER 2 LBS!!!

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

All my hard work is starting to pay off. Bright and early this morning on my weigh-in day, I got on the scale with no expectations only to look down and see that 2 more lbs have left town. YIPPEEEEEEE! HOORAY HOORAY! Am I excited? You bet! I've got 11 more to go until goal. And then I'll see if I want to go down further or stay at my body's most comfortable weight. I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

Wishing all a happy day.

    That is so awesome to hear about the weight coming off after being on the "forever plateau" as you describe it. All those changes you have been working on this year are really paying off.

A MILESTONE FOR ME

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I have to admit that I've been pondering this decision for weeks, unable to mentally let go of this security blanket of sorts. Although it's been over three months of no caffeine, I still held onto the old coffeemaker and remaining coffee on the shelf. Well, today I got rid of them both. Yikes, that was a big mental step.

(I am soooo tempted to retrieve them out of the trash.)

Sometimes that can be such a weight lifted off us - letting go of something that was holding us down in thought.

R.I.P. Robin Gibb & Donna Summer

Monday, May 21, 2012

Two more talents go away. My fave songs of theirs was It's Only Words, Massachusetts, and one other slow one I can't remember the name. And the voice of Donna Summer will be missed as well. R.I.P.

Americans Spend 1/5 of Food Budget...

Sunday, May 20, 2012

... on veggies and fruit, according to a report I heard recently. They said that, although people think that healthy foods are more expensive, when looked at more closely, they are actually not.

What's more expensive than all of the garbage that most pack into their carts? When looking at how many servings one gets from veggies, it factors out to be a lot less than the processed stuff we normally buy.

Wishing all a happy day.

    It comes down to quantity over quality.
There are some cheap non nutritious foods, but the healthy stuff is cheaper in the long run because you do not need the volume to satisfy you,

    I've found that it's cheaper or the same price to buy freggies as opposed to all the other junk people buy. It's all about perspective I suppose, and the people who generally argue that buying freggies is more expensive generally aren't eating enough anyway! (Funny how that works-- they don't know because they aren't buying them!)

    I have no problem buying healthy. It fits into my budget and Hamburger Helper is never on my list (I only mention it because it seems to be one of the most frequent things that pops up in the argument).

    I know....I have tried (unsuccessfully) to convince people that healthy foods are cheaper than unhealthy foods. I always fruit examples-- on my last receipt to the grocery store, a banana was 20 cents, kiwi was 31 cents, mango was 59 cents, cucumber was 45 cents, a serving of carrots was around 30 cents....and the cheapest thing you're going to find at a fast food place is a $1.00 fry or burger. Cost is really just an excuse people use to say that they cannot eat healthy, because they cannot afford to.

Coffee Drinkers Live Longer?

Friday, May 18, 2012

Yet another "study" has been in the news all day; coffee drinkers live longer. It's been over three months (today is day 106 in fact) that I detoxed from caffeine. It was a hard fought battle and I thought I was ready to throw away the old coffeemaker and little supply of coffee that remains on my shelves.

However, I have been jonesing big-time. Not because I love it. Not because I want it. But because of a book I read last week that I'll be blogging about soon. It's called "6 weeks to OMG," in which the author gives tips for a jumpstart to weight loss. And coffee is one of the tips for speeding up metabolism. I've been wanting to speed up this process. Tired of working hard at it. (yes, I know I'm being a silly rebel)

But I had to remind myself of how even a little bit of coffee makes me feel yucky. I got on some medical websites that listed the pros and cons of caffeine and reminded myself that I have a couple of factors that don't do well with coffee. So, it's been on the brain and what also kicked in is the thinking that everyone else in the world is enjoying it except me. (yes, just like a five year old)

Wishing all a happy day.

    Another reason that I do love my coffee ;-)
Do you like hot stuff...the capsaicin is supposed to speed up your metabolism, too.

    It's been in tbe news recently . . . I'm wondering who funded this study?

I don't drink . . . the health benefits of drinking are routinely touted . . . doesn't make me want to drink.

You're doing great! Slow & steady really does win the race.
