Defining Moments in Life...
Yesterday, I went to the doctor for the first time in a long time. She was new to me, as my old doc moved to Sacramento. I needed to have my thyroid checked again as my hair is falling out like you wouldn't believe and both my mom and grandma ha... Read more
Mom had a tummy tuck...I want to be a healthy example by choosing healthy living over surgery!
This past week has been a week of massive change for me. I moved and no longer have a roommate, my mom had a tummy tuck and today I am back on track.
I was a little mad at my mom for getting the tummy tuck. She had lap band surgery about 4... Read more
Running alongside the band wagon, can't seem to jump on all the way!
I have been struggling. I gained 2lbs last week and I didn't think I did that bad. However, I have had stress higher than I have had in a long time and no sleep. Bad combination for weight loss.
I haven't been posting much, I have just bee... Read more
We can only control that which we have control over...
This past week has been terribly difficult for me. One of my family members is causing havoc on our entire family. I think a lot of it is stemming from that family member's significant other. I haven't been able to sleep well, my hair is falling... Read more
A little VICTORY at lunch today...
I have had a rough go over the last two weeks. This past week, I went to the gym twice a day, stayed OP and gained 0.4. I was frustrated. Since Saturday...I did okay. But was even more frustrated when I got on the scale yesterday and saw that my... Read more
Losing weight is such a challenge and cheating is so easy! Why?! Ugh!
This week was a tough week for me. I was doing great until Tuesday evening. I had my therapist appointment and thought it went well. I think it brought a few things up, well it must have, because all I wanted was frozen yogurt! So, I had gone to... Read more
The F Word..."Fat"
Last night...I was out with some friends for another friends birthday. I had finally gotten up the courage to wear my strapless top, even though I am super self-conscious about my arms. The night was going along okay, until we waited in line for... Read more
I'm becoming an EARLY bird and kinda LIKE it!
This week...I changed ONE thing initially. I said Tuesday morning..."I'm going to get up and go to the gym. I am going to do just 30 minutes on the bike or treadmill, then I can go home if I want to."
Washing Away Old Habits/Goals for 2012
So...Looking back on my last post, I need to understand that I can't cut out food groups or items completely, unless there is a medical reason. It just makes me want that particular food more! So, I had a mini Hershey chocolate and a Fanta on Sa... Read more
My New Years Realization...not Resolution!
Well...I just got back from New Zealand a few days ago...caught a cold from the flight home, but am finally feeling better. It was a great trip, beautiful country with a ton of friendly people! I met a lot of new friends and have to say it was a... Read more
What 2011 has taught me so far...
One really great thing that has come out of this tough and difficult year is that I have realized that I haven't "dieted" at all in 2011. I am starting to understand that my weight and health is something I have to focus on each and every day. I... Read more
Moments of clarity...
I have been struggling. If you have been reading this blog, you are well aware of that. I hope you don't think I have multiple personalities or anything. I just have two...Me when I am OP (on plan) and me when I am struggling to get back OP! I t... Read more
Had to get weighed at doctors today...3pts left for the day & its 1:38pm!
I wasn't supposed to be weighed today, had I known, I would have worn something different. I was in jeans, full jewelry and tennis shoes. Yep....back up again. Ugh! I thought I did fairly well yesterday. Today...I am running out of veggies and I... Read more
Yesterday was a ROCKSTAR day!
I have been struggling...there is a lot of change going on in my life...I am moving again (moved in July) at the end of the month, I am going from a 1BD/1BA apt to sharing a condo, I am trying to find a new job and my group of close friends have... Read more
Weekends are killing my good weekly efforts! Gotta get out of this cycle!
When I weighed in on Saturday, I had gained 3.4 lbs! I had exercised and had been pretty good during the week. The weekend was another story, not horrible, but not good. It always seems when I start exercising, I gain. I am learning to accept th... Read more
