I weighed in initially at 225 and then crept up to over 230. I am now weighing in at 224.6. Yea! I have been using the recipes on spark and I have subscribed to Cooking Light - I absolutely love this magazine! Now that I am living without my husband, I have rediscovered my love for cooking. I am not eating out all the time. I feel better. And, what I think the most important part is, I love what I am eating and don't feel like I am on a diet! I do still have the occasional craving for... Thu, 19 Jul 2012 14:06:41 EST Been so sick... I have been sick for 5 days now. Feeling better than I have been feeling, but jeez, this is the worst I have felt in quite a while. :( Have a respiratory infection, sore throat and had a fever for a few days. On antibiotics and doing much better, but it has thrown off everything - food tracking, diet, hydration, medications, etc. Ready to be back on track. Tomorrow is a new day. On the plus side, since I have been sick, I haven't been eating too much. Maybe I lost a little weight. I'... Sun, 3 Jun 2012 23:11:51 EST Feeling a little better about myself I have lost a few pounds (although my ticker won't show it since I gained some after my initial weigh in), am doing better about tracking my food and goals and am generally feeling a little better about myself. I think I am also getting used to being by myself again. It has almost been a month since my husband has moved out. I think that has also helped. It has been pretty bad for a while. I have agreed to go out with him tomorrow evening - dinner and a movie. It's our anniversary. It ... Fri, 25 May 2012 22:10:58 EST Migraines suck Yesterday was wasted with a migraine and then I slept in today. Still not feeling my best. I hate migraines and I get them all too often. I am hoping that now that my husband has moved out, stress will be reduced and maybe they will happen with less frequency. Or maybe that is wishful thinking. Seeing my neurologist again on Wednesday. Seems like medications don't work very well. <BR> <BR> It would have been nice to have time to continue getting my house back together. I am still work... Mon, 14 May 2012 17:41:11 EST A little better? Yesterday was a bad day. My husband came over to pick up the last of his stuff and to get the cats. Tension was high. I ate horrible food all day long. Today was a new day. I didn't get up as early as I liked, but oh well. I have been very frustrated with work, but didn't take it out on my body today by eating bad food. I had a great salad for lunch and tried the Flat Out pizza recipe on here for dinner (very tasty). I did snack on some Triscuits, but they are my weakness. I figure I... Thu, 10 May 2012 21:55:28 EST Overwhelmed I'm not sure where to start. I know I am not getting enough exercise, I don't eat right, I don't have anything resembling a routine as far as sleep or eating goes. I am recently separated from my husband. Feeling depressed. I know that change needs to happen, but I feel so overwhelmed sometimes it is just sometimes easier to go back to bed. I did finally buy some furniture to replace some things he took. Maybe I'll feel better when I have a living room again. My furniture will arrive o... Tue, 8 May 2012 16:56:22 EST
