Emotional Eating

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      2 comments

I did great up until lunch today. I got up and made a great smoothie. I weighed myself, so I am now at 294. Then I bought the plane ticket for my 15 year old to go live with his grandparents. For my next step, I ordered pizza. I'm n... Read more

Day 2 Juicing... and other issues

Monday, June 24, 2013      2 comments

Got up this morning, but did not want to wake up. My muscle relaxer really did its job last night. I had to go to the office, so I gathered up my breakfast and lunch and headed out the door. I took apples and carrots since I would not be ... Read more

Sunday 6-23 Day 1 Reboot

Sunday, June 23, 2013      1 comments

I started today without a juicer as my friend did not give me the cleaning tool. It has now been ordered and I should receive it in a week. Not feeling hunger pains at all despite the limited foods. I followed all the recipes from the Day... Read more

This morning

Wednesday, June 19, 2013      3 comments

I woke up this morning with my hands and feet swollen. I am going to assume it was the salt from the french fries and quarter pounder. I was hungry before leaving for the grocery store and the kids said they were starving to death, so I ran th... Read more

Take 15 million..

Tuesday, June 18, 2013      0 comments

One of these days, my healthy eating patterns will stick. Maybe when I am not feeding a family of 6 with two teenagers and a husband who is a foodie. I started yesterday to make a smoothie for breakfast. Then I left the house and ended up... Read more

Trying Once Again

Tuesday, April 05, 2011      2 comments

I've decided most of weight loss is a lot like quitting smoking. I am going to accomplish it eventually, possibly after 5 or 6 times of REALLY trying to quit. I quit smoking 4 years ago, and I'm sure I can lose the weight. I've had severa... Read more

Made it through the weekend

Monday, June 14, 2010      0 comments

I started off my weekend doing something stupid - My ex sent me an email designed to start a fight and I actually jumped right into it. I managed to type back without going overboard and I think I may have nipped it in the bud by putting the ba... Read more

The Decision

Friday, June 11, 2010      0 comments

I spent a month tracking everything on Sparkpeople. I exercised. I hurt. My lower abdomen hurt from undigested roughage and I ended up having CT's. I felt great emotionally. I worked hard. I went to the doctor and I had gained three lbs. ... Read more

To surgery or not to surgery?

Sunday, April 18, 2010      1 comments

So, the time has come for me to make some decisions. I need to lose weight, obviously. But the question is "Do I take a more drastic approach to weight loss this time?" I met with a bariatric surgeon a few months ago and thought about getting... Read more

Today's Update

Wednesday, March 18, 2009      0 comments

I am looking for an online journal I can record my day to day health issues. That way I hope to access them from my different computers. I need to track my symptoms, what the allergens in the air are, what I ate (I can use SparkPeople for this... Read more

Health Issues

Tuesday, March 10, 2009      2 comments

I started coughing pretty bad back in November. Started to have trouble breathing or feel like I had a tight chest. Go to see the dr in December and start a cycle of "here try this medicine" for several visits. One dr says it's bronchitis, an... Read more

I am back. I took a long time off from getting healthy. I think most of it had to do with work schedule. Before this I was going to the gym at work everyday. I'm going back today and will get myself back on track. I need to change my ... Read more

My Mother

Wednesday, June 11, 2008      0 comments

My mom is an inspiration. I just talked to her for almost an hour getting advice on my feet, the walking shoes and how I finally sound like I am truly ready to get healthy. She gave me the name of her shoes that she uses for walking. She's go... Read more

I will live, but man do my feet hurt. After a weekend of not doing much, I think due to depression of my older kids going to Myrtle Beach (and gaming on LOTRO), I got back to walking yesterday. The question is: Are my feet injured from the wa... Read more

Back on Track

Monday, June 09, 2008      0 comments

My older boys left for Myrtle Beach last Thursday. They'll be gone most of the summer. I'm ok with them going. They've gone before. But the initial shock of how quiet the house gets without them is rather disconcerting. So, I'm afraid I sta... Read more
