I've lost another three pounds, this week, so hey, I'm on the road. Not doing anything unhealthy, just exercise, and the calorie intake recommended by my doctor. That makes a total of four, so I just have to keep on truckin'. Cool!

Ok, so it's getting easier to keep in my calorie count this week. My body is no longer convinced I'm trying to kill it by starvation. But, habits die hard, so it's distraction time!
I've discovered that in order to not mindlessly eat, just because, I have to keep my hands and mind busy.
Now, I love to read, but there's only so much of that I can do before my eyes are exhausted, so I move on to sewing. I'm not much of a seamstress, it never interested me when my mother tried to teach me as a teenager. However, I then had kids, and wanted to be capable of making something for them, so I took up quilting.
I LOVE it. And now it's going to help me keep within my limits this week!
The first thing I did yesterday is make a dress I've been promising my daughter I would attempt. She is thrilled with it, she's only three so doesn't see all the flaws I do, and it was a GREAT starting point.
Now I plan to work on a lover's knot quilt for a couple I know who just celebrated their tenth anniversary.
Yes, distractions are good!

Ok, celebrate the little victories. Today is my official weigh in day, and I'm down 1.2 pounds! Yea! It's a step in the right direction! The scale is moving, and it's not going up. We can do this!

Ok, so I know how this goes, I've done this before. The first three days I'm REALLY grouchy, and CONVINCED I'm starving. Then it get easier. The first two weeks I will be seriously challenged, as my body tries to convince me that this is a REALLY bad idea. Then all the exercise endorphins will become almost addictive, and I'll find myself looking forward to exercising everyday, I'll miss it if I can't, and eating too large of a meal will make me feel ill. My body WILL adjust. And I WILL feel better. Soda will seem WAY too sweet, I'll crave water, vegetables will become my friends.
I know that's how it works because I've done this before.
Intellectually, I know that good things will happen two weeks from now, mentally, even if not on the scale.
For now, I'm still grouchy.
But...it will get better. And spring is here. Maybe I should take the kids to the zoo. Fresh air, sunshine, and a built in walk. Hey, it's a start. And you've gotta start somewhere, right?

Here I am again. 277 pounds, and no end in sight. I had gotten down to 250, and in less than a year, I ate all my hard work away. And why? Because I let myself get stressed out over personal relationships, and a long and seemingly never ending winter.
But you know what? Winter finally ended.
Yes, winter can and will end.
Will my weight gain? Or will an orange, lasagna loving cat continue to be my roll model?
To be continued...
