Day 3 - L or D
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      1 comments

It is day 3 of my Life or Death eating plan. Boosting protein, boosting vegetables, no sugar, no starches... This is the first afternoon I'm wishing I had some sweets. But it's the afternoon doldrums and I would probably be better served by ta... Read more
Life or Death
Monday, April 22, 2013      0 comments

Last night I was reading a book to get me thinking and motivated about going back to no sugar. The health concerns I have are really constant now and I'm back up to weighing what I did when I was full-term pregnant with my younger kids. That w... Read more
Up all night

I haven't slept much the last 12 hours. I did not go to bed until after midnight and then I was up every couple of hours or less. I've been using a CPAP to try to sleep better but I was really aware of it last night. My hands kept falling asl... Read more

I've been feeling worse and worse physically. My depression symptoms are still active except for crying all the time. I decided over the weekend that I had to take a stand and take care of myself. It's time to break the sugar addiction and to... Read more
No Will Power... I mean, none.

I know what I *should* do and yet I cannot force myself to do it. Sugar, carbs, whatever you call them, they are ruling my world instead of me ruling my world. I have been looking at all of these diet pills and OTC diet pills and I cannot ... Read more
Sugar Addiction

I am totally addicted to sugar. I have known this for years and yet I still fall back into that trap. I am not tempted by pasta or bread. I can pass by chips and salty carbs any day. Put a homemade cookie in front of me, especially one tha... Read more

I am back on the wagon again. I have been through many changes in the past two years. My son has been diagnosed with autism and my life pretty much revolves around his therapies and trying to keep our home liveable. It is not a bad life and... Read more

On the 8th day back on the lower-carb wagon. I don't know if I'm losing enough to maintain for very long at this current pace. When I make my own meals, I do much better staying within my limits. Taking the breading off of fish or pumping up ... Read more
Can I do it?
Friday, October 30, 2009      0 comments

Why can't I get myself in gear? Why can't I say no to the sugar and carb laden foods? I was looking through my photos (digitally) and just 2 years ago I was 25 -35 lbs less than I am today. Yes, I have seen both of my parents waste away from ... Read more
Changing weather... same ol' me!
Saturday, October 03, 2009      0 comments

Oh what a glorious change has come about this week in the weather. It went from record highs (104? 106?) to a doable 91. It just feels like I can step outside without a towel to mop my forehead. However, I am the same ol' me, with the same ... Read more

In the diet vs. exercise dilemma, this explains why it's so hard to do both at the same time!

I went today for a nerve conduction test on my hands/arms. It's a good thing I did my exercise this morning because I sure as heck do not feel like doing it now! LOL The technician was very nice and I have no complaints about that... I had th... Read more

I've jumped onto the treadmill 2 days in a row! YAY for me! Making myself exercise while my kids are home in the morning before school is working so far. They can play with the baby while I read/walk on the treadmill. I know something good i... Read more

Tomorrow I begin again, once more, to work on my nutrition (aka diet) and physical activity. I am not particularly excited about the eating part, as I feel at a loss as to what to eat. I mean, I know in my head what I can eat, but I don't feel... Read more
