I realize now I am an emotional eater. And that I really don't know how to eat like a healthy person. I went from being anorexic, to trying to eat healthy and following my overweight boyfriend's ways. He would eat quickly, and in large quantity.... Read more
Getting up and moving
After my walk last night, I thought it might be nice to take one of the dogs on a walk this morning. I know they don't go on walks often enough, I'm just not up to it most days. I'm determined to make more of an effort, and after last night went... Read more
That gross feeling
A reminder to myself of why I don't eat fast food.
So, today I had planned on having a rotisserie chicken and roasted potatoes for dinner. Homemade, of course! But on the way home a storm rolled in, and I know we lose power a lot. Last time we... Read more
How did I get here? ... Again?!
I totally got off track. I quit SP because I thought it was too much effort, all the tracking and reading and writing. It just felt like too much to do for me. What I've realized since then is the only reason I was losing any weight was BECAUSE ... Read more
I've learned so much on this website. I think one of the biggest is to enjoy and celebrate even the littlest victories. Lost .6 pounds instead of the 1 i was hoping for? It's still a loss, which means I'm still on my way to my ultimate goal - s... Read more
Hello, 131! How I've missed you.
Been awhile since you've been around...I've missed seeing you on that scale! Where have you been? No matter. You're here now, and that's what counts.
But, I hate to tell you, you're not here to stay. Don't worry, I'm not replacing you with you... Read more
Why I should
I want this to be a motivation for days like today when I don't feel like going to the gym, just using the Wii when I know that may not happen, and I know it's not enough.
I want to shop at stores like the Gap, Limited, Forever 21, and Victori... Read more
So last night, the husband decided he wanted pizza for dinner. I already had planned ravioli (not the healthiest, but certainly not pizza!) but he wanted comfort food after a bad day at work. Me, being sympathetic and I guess an enabler, said or... Read more
Trying new things
So here I am, watching biggest loser with the husband (who is snacking on an APPLE!) I won't say anything, but can I just tell all of you how PROUD I am? I know now I'm having a positive influence on him. Hurray!
Anyway, back on topic. I'm wat... Read more
So disappointed in myself this weekend! I know I have self control, but why does it seem to run away just when I need it? The husband wants to go out to dinner. Ok, no problem, I can order a salad or a light dish and fill up with some lemon wate... Read more
A while back, I learned portion sizes. I was shocked by some of them! And when I compared them to what I was eating, what I 'thought' was a portion, I was even more shocked. Boy was I off base!
This weekend was a real wake up call. The hubs an... Read more
I cannot believe I did it. I feel like there must be some mistake, no way is that right! I actually lost a pound? Even though I didn't exactly have the best week ever? Wow. Amazing. What will happen next week?! This definitely motivates me to ge... Read more
I had a pretty healthy eating day, so I'm proud of that at least. I almost met my protein goals, but it is hard! Crazy hard. I'll have to get creative to meet and continue to meet that mark.
I just woke up from a half hour or so nap. I am not ... Read more
Slowly but Surely
I didn't go for that pizza last night, instead I ate the broccoli Mike left. I was so proud of myself, for making the right choice!
Today I learned that I am just not getting enough protein in my diet. I'm hitting all my numbers but that one.... Read more
Today I learned
Today I learned I do have self control. I DO! We had a frozen pizza for dinner tonight. I know, I know. I had plans to make a pasta dish in the crockpot but silly me forgot to defrost the meat! So it's defrosting for tomorrow. So we had pizza an... Read more
