I made it back online after my computer issues, and have found that the great momentum I had, had has dwindled. Oh, I'm not quitting but I find myself back at the starting line emotionally. <BR> <BR> Last week I thought I was changed forever and would never get off the road to success, and then....it happened I was unable to get logged in to Sparkpeople for two solid days. <BR> <BR> I was all but devastated because,I had gotten to the place in my head that I just knew I was... Mon, 5 Mar 2012 11:16:21 EST Happy Monday =;b http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4759315 I really needed a stern talking to yesterday. Thanks to everyone for the support. I managed to drink all my water yesterday. Today, I've already numbered and dated my water bottles, eaten and logged breakfast, and am headed to the gym before 9. I also got on the scale and finally saw a loss again. Amazing what a little push and some water will do. It's a great day! Much Luck to all my fellow Sparkers! MAKE IT HAPPEN! <em>68</em> <em>311</em> <em>306</em> Mon, 27 Feb 2012 09:11:13 EST I know the enemy and It's ME http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4757874 I need everybody's help. I have been doing really well up to now, but over the past week or so I've started noticing my old habits creeping slowly back into my days. <BR> It's so easy to ignore these little errors, little by little - 1 oz. here, a couple of chips there till finally one day - before you even realize it you have a great big monster to deal with. You aren't even doing what you promised yourself that you would do. <BR> Well not this time! It's only February 2012 and I bega... Sun, 26 Feb 2012 11:59:10 EST Emotionally I've had a tough week. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4746080 Menopause, hormones, anger at my self for being forgetful, I've struggled for at least a week with my appetite. Everyday it's been hard just to keep from eating. Today's recommended article was good and hopefully I got enough information to help with my cravings. I've been trying to connect to teams but haven't done too well. It's okay though because I realize that I have to! have to! have to! eat a good breakfast, and for me that means some protein early in the day, without that I spi... Sun, 19 Feb 2012 12:49:04 EST Obsessing over food vs wanting something sweet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4737515 I just lost a blog I spent 30 minutes writing so I'm keeping this short and sweet. <BR> I read another blog today about obsessing over food and realized that over the years of yoyo dieting I discovered a link with the amount of sugar in my body and the obsessive behavior. I'm grateful to now know that as long as I keep sweets to a minimum in my diet I don't have to think of food constantly morning, noon, and night GREAT Blessing! This understanding offers hope again of someday having a he... Mon, 13 Feb 2012 21:05:12 EST
