Getting my Pollyanna on!

Thursday, March 08, 2012      4 comments

So, today I woke a little down still. When I started Sparking I opened an email from a fellow Sparker who told me how helpful I was to have commented in length on her blog. I actually seek out people I think need a lift and try to lift their s... Read more

A normal day

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      3 comments

Today was a pretty good day. I'm off tonight so at least my meal is hot and not heated up in a microwave. I chose Chicken Milanese tonight. I sleep through lunch when I am off and only have a snack during my normal working hours. I usual... Read more

Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it

Tuesday, March 06, 2012      3 comments

So, as usual I ordered two things for dinner. The dinners are so bad here you aren't sure if you will get what you ordered or whether it will be edible. I have eaten so much chicken you can't even imagine. But, the best choice yet again wa... Read more

I feel fat today even though I am staying ”between the lines” so to speak on my program. I at the right amount and do all I should toward my goal. But, I woke up feeling fat. Why is that? I guess it is going to be another “let’s think about w... Read more

Have you ever met someone who has never been overweight? I'm not putting them all in the same category. You know them vs us. But, I have noticed that SOME people who have never been overweight don't get those of us who are. I tried runni... Read more

Being Tired

Friday, March 02, 2012      0 comments

I really need to get more sleep. Every time my day off comes around I blow my sleep cycle. I try not to but something always comes up to mess it up. I want to go to the market, or Bob goes to work and kisses me goodbye which is a death sentenc... Read more

Monitoring my moods

Thursday, March 01, 2012      0 comments

So, I am trying to monitor why I eat. I have always thought that I eat for a ton of reasons. I still do. But, it appears the one that is uncontrollable is anxiety. It has happened a couple of times in the past two weeks. I get this undercur... Read more

Everything in moderation

Tuesday, February 28, 2012      2 comments

I wish I were home. At home I could be snacking on vegetables more often. For now I have to snack on whatever I can find at breakfast. Since I am overseas I worry about fruit that doesn’t have a skin. So, I have to get bananas, apples and... Read more

What do you do when you are bored?

Monday, February 27, 2012      2 comments

I find that when I decide to lose weight I create distractions. Now my life is busy anyway, but I seem to get an awful lot more done when I go into diet mode! I find that it seems to keep me from thinking about food so much. Things I d... Read more

How many of us have let ourselves go when we gained weight? We gain weight for a lot of reasons. My life took over and I got busy and before I knew it I was hugely overweight. I’ve been a little overweight all my life. I think 15 pound... Read more

A friend turned me on to a couple of coupon sites. Groupon and Social Living. You can find deals in the area you live in for hotels, spas and outings. We will be in Chicago and St Louis in the fall so I have been searching those areas for dea... Read more

I talked myself out of it

Friday, February 24, 2012      2 comments

So, it is now hours past dinnertime. I struggled greatly tonight at dinner. I am not sure why. I tried hard to analyze it. I could feel it physically, like an undercurrent. Strange. I've never paid much attention to it before. I've just eate... Read more

You're not the boss of me!

Thursday, February 23, 2012      2 comments

I have very little time today but I just realized that I have given food too much power over me. I have been living my life wondering what my next meal was going to be. Granted because I like to eat and because it gave me comfort when I was bo... Read more
