I tried to be on track today, but it didn't work out so well. Why is it stress just says, Go straight to comfort food, and don't pass go? I have heard it said, that when we feel out of control, we eat because that is the one thing we can ... Read more

Not a good day

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      6 comments

Wow the days get by you quick don't they. I didn't realize the last blog was day 16. The past few days have been pretty much the same. I had a couple of days where I was ok with my eating, but mentally felt a bit down. Those feelings hav... Read more

Day 16

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      4 comments

Day 16 was a bit icy. Can we say DH calls to say he had just ran over his new $700 glasses with the lawn mower and destroyed them. I still made it through the afternoon without any major cravings. Then once dinner hit, I wanted comfort food. ... Read more

I am happy to announce I had another good day today in spite of a stressful morning. I had given my dog a bath out on the driveway. I tie her short leash around the bottom of the railing so she can't run from me. After the bath, I took her ba... Read more

Day 11 was another success. I hate putting that out there because the weekend is now upon me. I always seem to crack on the weekends. I'm thinking I might tweak the program I am doing a bit for the weekend so to not scare me away. Good thing... Read more

Day 10 - Change

I got up this morning, weighed, and thought, something has to change. I have been a lifetime Weight Watchers since the 1990's. Even though I don't go to meetings anymore, I always do the program I lost weight on. It's just second nature to kn... Read more

Day 9

Day 9 was a so/so day. I do really good usually for breakfast and lunch, then tend to want comfort foods for dinner. Overall, it wasn't a bad day for me. It could have been better, but at least I did more good than bad.... Read more
