TRIXY101's SparkPeople Blog TRIXY101's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community 1 Day at a time :) Well, I am 1 week back into Spark. When I went to the Doc last time I am on the verge of having to have meds to control my Sugar. This does not make me happy. SO I jumped back on Spark and enlisted help from my family and friends. After 1 week i can feel the difference in the way that I feel and I can tell when I eat somethign that raises my sugar. The weekend is the toughest for me, but I think I made some good choices. I also think that I have a long way to go to make good choices all... Mon, 30 Apr 2012 10:51:49 EST Outcome of Girls night So last night I did meet up with the "girls" and had Nachos, they were yummy but I felt kind of yucky after eating the entire thing. So leason learned!!!! <BR> <BR> One good thing is that one of the "girls" noticed that I had lost a few lb. That makes the efforts worth it even more. I have seen small movements on the scale, I feel better, but when someone notice that is "icing on the cake". <BR> <BR> Off to do something to get the blood pumbing for the day. It is cold and nasty here... Sat, 18 Sep 2010 10:23:19 EST Girls night So I am meeting up with the girls tonight for NACHOS, do I eat nothing all day or do I just snack? I know I will eat the entire NACHO and refuse to have guilt over this. <BR> <BR> Just wondering what others would do????? Fri, 17 Sep 2010 14:11:11 EST Doc and Diet So after many years of going up and down on the scale I have always had a clean bill of heath from my doctor. No sugar problems, my chorlestoral was always normal too. Well, that is not the fact now. My sugar is HIGH and my chorlestoral has spiked the WRONG way. <BR> <BR> So for 2 weeks I have been faithful to the Sparkpeople. I have logged my food, use my own menu and Spark menu also to get some ideas as to what I should be doing. <BR> <BR> My biggest problem is that I am afraid t... Thu, 9 Sep 2010 09:10:36 EST Lost my way Week 2 2010 Today is Saturday, my worse day of the week for eating. Well I have no choice to watch what I eat because I slipped off the wagon on Thursday and Friday was not any better. Everyday I know that I have to think about what I am doing in regards to eating. Those 2 day's I was not thinking. I let the rest of the world get to me. Why??? Don't know but I did. That is what happens to me. I do great most of the time. That other 10% of the time is what hurts my weight loss. I am still goin... Sat, 16 Jan 2010 10:10:35 EST Weigh In week of 01-11-10 Ok, so I weighed in at WW last night. I lost!!!! <em>224</em> BUT, alway a but, it was less then a lb. I was very disappointed with 3/4 of a lb in 2 weeks. <BR> <BR> After the weigh in I just wanted to eat. Not the good stuff. <BR> <BR> Lets see what next weeks weigh in brings. <BR> <BR> Tue, 12 Jan 2010 10:55:10 EST The Spark I broke down and bought the book last night. I kept telling them myself that I did not need another <BR> diet book. After reading the first chapter this is not just another diet book. I was up until 2 am reading the book with out even knowing it. I only read the introduction but, I went back and read some of the stuff over again because it made sense for everything in your life not just your diet. So as I read through the book I will keep everyone that is reading this blog what is so di... Sun, 10 Jan 2010 11:35:36 EST Week 1 2010 Maybe this will keep me on track if I just lay it out for everyone to read. I have started the year off not bad. I joined WW before Thanksgiving to me keep me awear of what I was eating. It seemed to work, I lost 2 lb. Not a great feat to lose 2 lb in 6 weeks but it is WAY better then gaining 10 over the holidays. I have had a really good week this week, now the weekend is a different story. It is always so hard to stay on track when I am home for 2 day's. Going to meet with an good ... Fri, 8 Jan 2010 11:46:53 EST I did not know So on Tuesday of this week I stopped at Meijers to get something and decided to pick up a pre sliced bowl of fruit. It had pineapple, canalope, honeydew melon, strawberry's, and last is blueberry's. I almost did not buy it because of the blueberries. For as long as I can remember I have curled my nose at the thought of eating a blueberry. <em>24</em> But I did it, I put the blueberry in my mouth and guess what?????? <em>38</em> I liked it!!!! <em>29</em> <BR> <BR> That just sh... Thu, 8 Jan 2009 11:01:18 EST Sunday at the Park With a turkey meatloaf in the oven and the wind blowing outside, off to the park we went to fly a kite. I have not done this in years. I think I wanted it more then the kids. The park was wet but still they wanted to play. While the kids were sliding down the slide Mandi and I did sprints in the stones on the play ground. She won, big surprise. They we tried Jumping Jacks, that was not easy. I ended up with stones in my shoes. We had brought a soccer ball. <em>131</em> with us so Tan... Mon, 14 Apr 2008 13:55:38 EST Another week another pound Well, I will weigh myself in the morning and see the fruits of my labor for the last week. Up and down the scale goes. I know what to do but finding the time to do it is.........well the hard part. If there were just 4 more hours in the day or even just 4 more hours on the weekends. Yeah I know I would still be looking for hours. Sometimes this is a battle that I don't want to fight. Other day's I am good to go. I guess when they say pick your battles, this should be on of them. Mon, 19 Nov 2007 01:47:46 EST Weight Watchers Well, I went back to WW today for the first time in 3 months. Wow, how fast the weight comes on and how slow it comes off. I had lost 35 lb at WW the last time I joined. That was last year in March up until October of this year. I have gained back 15 lb in 3 months. I know what I am eating is wrong, but I can't seem to stop putting the food in my mouth. I want to try but I have lost the drive. How do you get back on the wagon?????? Do you just keep trying everyday????? I guess I have... Sat, 6 Jan 2007 21:44:21 EST
