I am getting frustrated with myself for not being able to tell myself no. I can envision myself skinnier, but I still eat the crap food. My husband was very supportive yesterday and yelled at me for making ramon noodles for lunch, so he ate them and I made myself a healthy omelette instead with some fruit. He also made some awesome broiled tilipia for us on Friday. I on the other hand, get home from work and just want something quick a...

I have some medical conditions that state I am supposed to have a high fiber diet, which I don't think I'm getting and on my daily intakes my carbs are always too high and my protein too low, which I know is contributing a lot to my tiredness. Can I get some quick, easy protein tricks? Also...yep one more thing. I don't know how to create the scale bar th...

Even before I decided to do this I would only have like half a cup of ice cream when we had it. Last night, I did NO exercise AND had about 2 cups of ice cream. Why am I resisting what I want so badly? Tonight we tried a new food (egg plant) and I made a nice healthy dinner. It was good and I'm full (too full), which is another thing I need to learn to deal with. It is a little late, but I am going to go use my ... Wed, 18 Sep 2013 19:52:49 EST working it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5488101 I am going to do this! I can do this!

I made a normal meal that I would normally make and as I was entering it in this morning to add to my tracker, I looked at it and realized that there are a lot of ways that I could have made it healthy for me and my family without losing taste. I am going to make it again next week (but healthier) and see what they think. I went and got a bunch of fruit and veggies to make my days go by faster. I find if I... Tue, 17 Sep 2013 10:12:12 EST Need help! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5486175 Okay, I need some help, some friends, etc... I not only want to lose this weight, I have to. I am 1 point away from being diabetic. I have been given a chance by my doctor to turn it around before I start on meds. I have absolutely no energy to exercise, so how do I motivate myself. All I want to do is sleep. I have cut pop 90% out of my life and have been drinking tons of water. I am eating healthier, but it is hard to do when you have to feed your family their food and still try to have mon... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 12:01:45 EST
