It seems (after looking at my past blog entries) that I start wanting to get healthy in June. All I know this time is that I feel lousy! When I wake up, I don't feel well. Is it the diabetes? Age? Weight? I don't know but I don't like it. I want to feel good again. I need to be fit. Why can't I do this? I have discipline in other aspects of my life. Why not food? When it means so much for my longevity? I have to do this! I like healthful food. Why can't I stick to... Mon, 28 May 2012 09:05:08 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4353013 Today is a new day. I need to get this done. I know it sounds corny but today is indeed the first day of the REST of my life! I want the last half (?) of my life to be just as heathful as the first half. I've got to get it under control NOW. No more waiting. What am I waiting for exactly? The time is now. Sun, 10 Jul 2011 12:25:33 EST 7/7/11 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4347810 Well, here I am again :-( No further than I was a year ago. Lost another year. Still feel lousy. Totally disappointed with myself. When am I going to get it? I need to just invest a year getting my weight under control and then just keep it off. I'm tired of losing and gaining. I've been doing this for 30 years and I'm tired of it. TIRED. I need to make this happen NOW. Or I'm not going to be around as long as I want to be! Thu, 7 Jul 2011 18:09:00 EST Day 66 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3471717 I'm still not too happy with myself. I can't get back on track. I'm not using the nutrition tracker which is not helping one bit. I like the freedom but I'm not liking the results. No weight loss. Big surprise. No gain yet though, so I need to get back at it before I gain back the five pounds it took me 5 weeks to lose. And I have a vacation coming up... Mon, 26 Jul 2010 15:48:29 EST Day 40 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3417314 I'm really aggravated because I didn't lose a pound this week. Too many M&M's, ice cream and eating out. And I didn't use the tracker. I know what the problem is and I let other people get in the way of what I know I have to do. I'm disgusted with myself. I feel like this sets me back some but it's just one week and I didn't gain anything so I guess that's the good news. So I have to get back on track this week and get back to eating right! Sat, 10 Jul 2010 11:27:45 EST Day 19 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3351155 I'm finally to a point I don't crave sugar. To say I was addicted to it would be an understatement. Even after I was diagnosed a diabetic I kept on eating sweets everyday. I just ate less. I still have sweet things but they are sugar-free for the most part. I did have "light" ice cream last night for the first time since starting my new health regime. It was delicious! I thought that would be the hardest habit to break because I sooo looked forward to my 2 scoops of my favorite ice cream (cho... Sat, 19 Jun 2010 21:04:03 EST Day 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3312554 I had my first weigh-in today. It doesn't hardly seem worth it for a loss of 2 lbs in my first week. I used to be able to lose 5 lbs the first week of a diet. I know my metabolism is slower now at my age but... <BR> Oh well, better than nothing, I guess. And I haven't incorporated any exercise yet. So it will get better. Right? <BR> I tend not to stick with things if I don't see results. But this only my first week. I just am so sick of dealing with this. But if I can just give up 6 months of... Tue, 8 Jun 2010 08:15:59 EST Day 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3305689 Yesterday was a bad day. I went WAY over on my calorie count and I couldn't stop. I don't know what went wrong. It started out fine. I was craving a pizza but resisted. Saturday is normally pizza and a movie night but I didn't give in to it. But I made spaghetti instead and it wasn't much better. Ate too much! Then to top it off I had to have popcorn too later in the evening. Now granted I didn't eat the Raisinets that I usually do but I still had 200 more calories on top of going over for th... Sun, 6 Jun 2010 10:49:28 EST Day 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3301494 I have done pretty well today, other than having a cookie (it was delicious)! I went to the grocery store today and came home with nothing but fresh fruit and veggies. NO JUNK! I am going back to work next week and the challenge will be there. Everyone I work with loves to eat! I'll have to be strong because we always have someone bringing in something to eat or snack on. I always say I have an extra 25 lbs just from well meaning people bringing in food. And I can't say no. So the next 2 week... Fri, 4 Jun 2010 19:55:30 EST Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3294116 Today was pretty much like yesterday. I kept on track but it was hard. I find myself getting hungry around 4-5 and I have been eating lunch later than I normally would. When I get back to work next week I'll be eating lunch at 12:00, not 2:00, so I better plan on a snack at work around 3:00. And maybe something different at lunch. I better make that my biggest meal of the day. <BR> Other than that had some stress from family. But I didn't let it get to me by the way of food. That's a good cha... Wed, 2 Jun 2010 19:52:02 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3287561 Today is the first day of this journey. It is not one I that I haven't been on before. But the difference this time is commitment! This is not because I have an event to look good for or a boyfriend to look good for or emotional distress. This time I must lose weight for ME. I have to get healthy! And I'm going to do whatever it takes to get there. So watch out world! <em>104</em> Tue, 1 Jun 2010 08:40:07 EST
