Hello there!


Wednesday, January 30, 2013



Ok so I have been failing miserably. Every attempt I make anymore just doesn't last. Is it because I have become to comfortable where I am at? Not sure. I do good for a week then binge eat for four days. It is awful.

So as of yesterday I have cut out sugar. I'm "planning" on 2 weeks on then a cheat meal. Meal not cheat day. Probably a Friday because that's when Jeff likes to eat out at a restaurant . Not to mention my CARDIOLOGIST told me to eat low carb. This surprised me.

Thank you to those who continue to support me and follow my Facebook page!
12,000 strong baby!

Here are some random pics since I haven't been on in a while..









Have a great Wednesday everyone!

    You're looking pretty fabulous!
We do the Friday cheat meal, as well. It gives you something different to look forward to at the end of the week, and you've certainly earned it!

    I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one! I've been struggling off and on since the holidays, and I hear that alot of people have been struggling that long. I think alot has to do with the colder weather too. We crave the comfort foods! Nice and warm and filling! Challenges are so good for us and that's what I've been trying to do and have been having better luck. You will too, with your sugar cut-back, etc. Good for you! It's the little things we do that add up to big thing! emoticon emoticon

    It's so good to hear from you, Sparksister! Remember, every positive step is a TRIUMPH! emoticon A poor choice later doesn't take it away or turn it into a failure.

    I know exactly how you feel! I'm struggling to take those next steps into low/healthy carb. I know it can really help cholesterol levels, etc but for some reason I keep wobbling back and forth. I'm encouraged that your cardiologist told you to do it though. emoticon emoticon

    Yeah, after a while of cutting out the sugar even a grapefruit/raspberry tastes sweet, and a strawberry is like candy. I think it only took me a couple of weeks before I really started to notice how sweet foods really were.

As for the carb thing- it's surprising how little I notice just cutting out the toast with my egg in the morning, and doing lettuce wraps instead of tortilla wraps. Just baby steps for me.

I know a 'cheat meal' for me may lead to a binge day/couple of days, so I have to tell myself the date meal out is no excuse not to eat well every other meal. Therefor, I don't call it a cheat meal, just a meal out. It's all psychological I'm sure.

Great to see you around again!

    I am on track again - 1 month - thanks mostly to my Lose 2 Win team. I was unable to do anything longer than a few days for over a year. Will this never end. I hate when people say make lifestyle changes - I will always like the foods I like and my brain seems to have a will of its own.

January a winner - will lose 7 to 10 pounds this month. First big losing month in a real long time.

  I know it is upsetting but this too will pass. Take one day at a time and don't stress as that will just produce cortisol and could lead to weight gain.

Eat more protein in your diet and everytime you eat a protein, eat a carb

    I'm in the same place as you - just sitting here giving myself a pep talk and reading blogs! Trying to find that motivation while eating a healthy breakfast and planning the day!

  you can do it after a while you won't even enjoy the sweets. it took me a long time but now if I drink soda it does not even taste good. I drank a six pack a day and now I do not even like it.It shows your body can get used to anything.Also never liked sweetners instead of sugar but now I do not like sugar. Keep pushing and don't give up
