  • Super Tracey to the Rescue!

    8/26/2016 10:55:41 AM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    I was on call last night but it was pretty quiet. Got up at 6:00 am and went to the office. Got done at 8:00 am and headed to the new Publix for some groceries. My good friend (who is a chef) is coming over to dinner with his wife. We're both supposed to do appetizers - yeah right. I'm not even... Read more

  • 20 pounds in about 3 months...

    8/26/2016 7:05:34 AM, by ZOEWMU

    I'll take it. I tracked all of my morning fasting and 2 hour after meal blood sugars for the past month. Here is what I'm learning: 1) If I don't eat keto, my 2 hour blood sugars are higher. I can't lie to myself anymore and say that the food I put in my mouth doesn't matter. I can te... Read more

    8/25/2016 8:27:21 PM, by LADYPANTHERRA

    Well I have joined the 21 day challenge and am on day 6 of it. I had a 4 day streak and then missed yesterday. I made up and completed the goal for that day and pulled double duty doing today's goal. *L* Good news is I signed up for water fitness at the Y and did my first class today! Go me! Si... Read more

  • Emotional eating still dragging me down

    8/25/2016 6:44:49 PM, by OLYMUM

    Emotional eating is still dragging me down. The silver lining on the storm cloud is that I am at least aware of the situation and the emotions. I am aware of my feeling and my actions so I am able to curtail some of it. However, it is still sucking me in. I need to find another outlet. Ugh.... Read more

  • Shut Up!

    8/25/2016 1:05:04 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Was tired this morning because I didn't sleep so well last night. I was having that whole conversation in my head "you deserve a rest day- you've done so well - blah, blah, blah." A louder voice said, "You still have time to make it to the water aerobics class." So I told that other voice to SHUT ... Read more

  • Stress eating

    8/24/2016 10:04:04 PM, by OLYMUM

    The last two days have been so stressful. Last night I turned to junk food for comfort. Biophysically, I know why carbs, sugar, and fat are comforting. It is still frustrating that I am at a stage where I am turning to food for comfort. The comfort is so short lived. In the end, I still have my... Read more

  • Day 4 and Still Binge Free

    8/24/2016 3:29:03 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    No idea what flipped the switch, but I'm back in the groove. Been swimming laps every morning to start the day. THAT definitely makes a difference and is something I had already learned - exercise first thing in the day is the BEST for me. It sets the tone for the rest of the day, gives me more e... Read more

  • Vacation in the UP of Michigan

    8/24/2016 9:44:56 AM, by MISSA526

    Still on vacation with my friend from college. We've been walking a ton and sight seeing. It's been a lot of fun but totally exhausting! I realize now how out of shape I am! Definitely going to get to work on that when I get home. More walking today as we check out some waterfalls. I'll post a more ... Read more

  • Too much fat and too little protein

    8/23/2016 10:09:58 AM, by CH64412010

    So, I notice it is starting to get a lot harder to lose weight. The one thing I notice that I can work on is my nutrients. I do good on carbs, but I cannot seem to get my fat and protein down. I do not eat fish so eating lean meats pretty much leaves me with tuna or chicken. Which I do eat quite oft... Read more

  • Inner Child

    8/22/2016 3:22:20 PM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Hey, don't laugh. I didn't much believe in this stuff either. But she's in there. And she's been hurting for 54 years. She's been feeling shameful, dirty, ugly and unloved. She was neglected and abused and didn't deserve ANY of it. I have listened to the lies about her and hated her, too. ... Read more

    8/21/2016 11:23:43 AM, by NARNIAROSE2003

    Hey guys. You all know I've been struggling for months now. It's been bad - maybe the worst in years. No idea why. But I'm not focusing on that today. I am taking steps to make changes again. I won't give up. I refuse to. I am going to therapy - doing the "inner child" thing. Yo... Read more

    8/16/2016 2:20:29 PM, by CH64412010

  • Busy Productive Day

    8/13/2016 11:25:46 PM, by HEALTHIER-TT

    I went to the gym today and walked for 25 minutes. Felt pretty good. I'm still a bit weak since I'm recovering from a UTI. I'm on day 6 of a 10 day antibiotic regimen. I was sweating profusely, but it was needed to help get the toxins out my system. After the gym, I went shopping. A family friend so... Read more

    8/9/2016 9:55:13 AM, by CH64412010

    So, I have a real people phobia. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I don't do crowds and social events. I have to say after 4 months of being a member at Planet Fitness it has really got me out of my comfort zone, but I love it. I never thought that would be me. I will just stick to my treadmil...

    7/31/2016 5:50:08 PM, by HEALTHIER-TT

    So far my weekend has been going fairly well. I made it to the gym on Saturday and today. I walked for 25 minutes each time. I made my step goal both times. It is currently lower than before the heart procedure, but I will eventually get back to where I was. I cooked enough veggie loaded pasta ... Read more

    7/29/2016 10:18:30 AM, by CH64412010

    Well, I have lost over 50 lbs now. I think its time for a reward. I am thinking about a hair appointment and getting some highlights. What are some ways you reward yourself? Really want to do something for myself. I think on top of the weight lost, a new hairdo could really boost my confidence even ... Read more
