Thoughts, Confessions, and Wishes...

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

As I said in my last blog, this has been a very busy month for me. I do, however, have nothing major planned for the last couple of days of the month.
I spent today with my grandbaby. We had a blast, as usual.
I have never been so sore in my entire life. Over the last few weeks I have done a tremendous amount of lifting and going up and down stairs. I suppose that had a lot to do with the soreness... but I would have thought by now I would have become somewhat used to it. I guess I am showing my age. *sigh*
I weighed in today 2lbs heavier than last week. This was my first "gain" since I started back on WW in Jan. of this year. I am not shocked at all... it has been very difficult for me to eat right while bouncing back and forth between here and my daughter's place. I don't always have the extra money to go to the grocery up there AND here. I also feel like I can't hurt my daughter's feelings by saying, "no, I can't eat there"... or no, I can't eat whatever it is she has planned to cook for me. I really struggle unless I am home and cooking for myself. Truth is I just haven't been really good about journaling either. On the brighter side, I am back home, and I am ready to get back with the program. I know that the word out in the "weight-loss world" is that you should never deprive yourself of something you want bad enough, however, for my own personal self... I ALWAYS struggle to get back with the program if I just take a few days of indulging. Maybe its just me....but that's how it is for me, which is why I really hate straying from staying away from those things I KNOW are not healthy and act as trigger foods for me. Please pray for me as I try to get back my momentum.
Another update on a personal level, my new "final" hearing is slated for the end of July. Ugh.. I just wish this was over. I also wish I had a dollar for every time I have wished that lol. emoticon

    Of course you don't want to be rude and not eat what they have.

    However, sometime I do little things... like put mustard or ketchup instead of mayo.I add vinegar ,water, milk or such to make the dressing not so much fat. Or if hat isn't available, I just put a generous teaspoon instead of 2 tbs or 1/4 cup. There is bunch of things like this..

    But 2 lbs is not too bad, unless it's every week or two. emoticon

    It's good to hear from you again, Mellie. I was wondering about the final hearing date, and hoping you were hanging in there...I know it's been such a long time to wait.

    I do understand what you're saying about finding it much easier to control how you eat when you control the surroundings. Me, too. I think maybe you could count as positive the fact that in the circumstances you only picked up 2 pounds...and they'll come off quickly now that you're back on track. It'll be okay - you know that.

    Have a GOOD day today, and know that there's a whole "cloud" of folks here cheering for you.

    Mellie, ugh on July! You MUST, also, do things just for you, selfish or not, often! You have done so well with your weight, let the body get used to this arena. emoticon

    I have been wondering how you were doing and when your "final" hearing was to be. I pray that it is over for you soon! And that you will be able to get back "on program" without much effort. It's good to hear from you, Mellie!

    You are in my prayers and I hope it's over for you very soon. It's always a struggle to get back to the program after a person has been off for a few days, so you are not alone. The good news is, each day is a fresh start and you CAN do this! HUGS!
