Still Trying

Thursday, September 19, 2013

I did so great last year from August till January 2013. I dropped 25 lbs. Then life happened once again and I lost my father-in-law to cancer. I have since then gained back almost all of the weight. I just started back again in August and I have lost 11 lbs. I have done so great, but the last few days I have not felt great and ate a little more than I should have and WAM there goes 4 stupid lbs. I know it's just water gain, but It's still hurtful. I look back at my old post and wonder why can't I feel this everyday and do great. Then I start to think it's "just life" learn and move on a better person.

I also want to say that my son has been accepted for an interview at UAMS college of pharmacy. He has worked so hard the last 2 1/2 years at college to be able to apply for pharmacy school. I want to be a great mom and be there for him. In order to do this I must get my health on track. He has been diagnosed with high cholesterol. So I want to show him better eating habits and exercise habits. My husband also has high cholesterol.

I just wish I could find a quick fix and not every have to worry about my eating habits every again!!!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog.

    I know your frustration......pain sucks. Stress sucks. Death sucks.. And, most of us run to food. Something as minor as an elevator breakdown in my apt building ---- sent me to the fridge today. I can't walk stairs and I'm on the 5th floor. And......I have to walk the dog. Luckily, I have a dogwalker who will climb the stairs and help me out.
    But my reflex reaction to stress ---- run to food.

    It's a learned behavior-------so we'll just have to UNlearn it, right???
    Hugs, Libby
