252.6 This is what happens to me when frustrated and angry. Angry at other people, but since I can't say anything, I take it out on myself.
Will have to do double today on diet and exercise just to get back to 250 by tomorrow (if possible!).

250.8 Kept the promise to myself on protein, but had some fruit for a snack in the a.m. Lunch and dinner was protein. More drama at the lodge did not help my stress levels, but I've got to learn to "shake it off" and forget about it. too much to do to let mean thoughts in. One more weigh in for the final 4 July challenge tomorrow.
Doctor said next option is knee surgery. I asked to postpone it until October, give me a chance to get some more weight off. They will call me next week to schedule. Now I have focus, now I have a reason, abracadabra, so be it! Thanks God!

250 No gym yesterday. Having my premier protein and yakult for breakfast, dr's appt in a half hour. Not sure how long that will take.
Don't know if Windows 10 installed yet or not, check on it later. Luncheon with the girls then Vets cook out. Busy day, sticking with protein.

251. 2 days in a row at the gym. Rode the bicycle for 3 miles, 15 minutes, yesterday. I have to work Bingo 11-2:30, but I'm packing my gym clothes with me so I can go there after Bingo.
Tomorrow is my 9 a.m. appointment with the orthopedist, weigh in for July at "One for All", luncheon with the ladies and Vets cookout tomorrow night. Probably won't make it to the gym! emoticon But no excuses for Thursday...... emoticon

251.8 Taking inventory for Wednesday night's cook out and then shopping. Hoping to come back and hit the gym for some cardio. Had salmon last night and another serving is holding as leftover for today. Then I have another piece to cook, may use that with crab on salad. Yum. emoticon

Way too much drama at the lodge yesterday. Glad I don't have to be there today. Now I can sit back and take care of myself.

251.8 Still no gym. Worked at the lodge from 10:30 until 1 pm prepping for today's car show. Stayed on track with eating except for some Herrs Jalapeno Poppers corn puffs last night. Won't do that any time again soon, woke up with my throat raw and coughing, had to eat some frozen yogurt to calm it down.
Having a big chicken salad before I go to the lodge this morning so I won't be tempted. Tomorrow we have to empty and clean the walk in, and then I think I'll have some time off!

252.8 Had some fruit yesterday, early in the day, with my Mexican omelet. Then a big salad for dinner. Not too bad, but more carbs than usual.
Going to go make my eggs and spam for breakfast. Then have to help make breakfast burritos at the lodge. I really want to go to the gym after that, I have not been in a couple of weeks.

252.4 Yesterday was 254, forgot to make a post. Not bad after having a flour tortilla, Fiber One Fudge Bar and some refried beans last night. The beans were sooooo good! Back with the program today, lodge meeting tonight. Going to drive up to Longmont and see DIL today since the next 2 days I will be busy.

252 last night was a struggle after listening to all the woes from the weekend at the lodge. Glad I didn't show up! Managed thru God's help and AW diet root beer to not do too much damage. God help me today! please? I'll be right in the thick of it tonight and the board and Executive Committee meetings. I'm a lover, not a fighter, but some of these folks need trainers to control them!
Off to Bingo this morning to work, packing my own lunch since they do not see fit to make the food the way I want it made.

252.2 talk about yo-yo! just looked and I weighed 252.4 last week, on Monday I was at 250.8! All that good weight loss and then like a rubber band I snapped back up to almost 256, coming back down now.
Finally ended up doing my wash and putting clean sheets on the bed yesterday. Stuck to all protein which is why I am back down. I'll be busier than a dog scratching fleas next week, so just eating protein will fit in quite nicely. Headed to the store to spice my Chinese soup (I have yet to make), then play Bingo today.

253.2 Doctor's visit today. Cholesterol was up, he said double the meds to 20 mg. Knees still hurting, he referred me to a orthopedist. Lost 5 pounds, he told me to keep doing what I am doing. Not all bad, will continue with high protein.

255 at 1:45 pm. I had one serving of canned mandarin oranges and went back to bed for a couple of hours. Still not feeling great, but much, much better. Tossing the leftover sub and pizza, no more for me thanks! emoticon

255.8 Tossing the other Italian sub and the other 7 pieces of pizza. I was sick as a dog last night and this morning. It has been years since I've "thrown up", but last night I did. Then laid there fighting it until way into the morning. no more order-in pizza for me! emoticon

252 Too much salt yesterday at lunch, ate dinner late. Refused to get involved in the drama last night. Rosalie had cooked the chili some more, so I divided it into containers, froze 2, put one in the walk in and took the leftover home. Then I got out of the way. It gave me a chance to socialize in the social quarters and talk to several people about things going on in the lodge. Today is Bingo and then I'm going to come home and make some Chinese pork soup, lots of veggies. emoticon emoticon emoticon

252.4 Ca rumba! Loving it! Tempted last night but then got to eat some meat from the party I was hosting and I held out and didn't blow it! emoticon
Brunch today (too late to call it breakfast!) 93/7 lean hamburger, slice of colby jack pepper cheese, TB Pace Salsa, TB light sour cream and one wholly guacamole 100 calorie pack--410 calories. emoticon This will keep me going until dinner!
Going to the lodge to cook the green and red chili for the cook out this week, then I can relax..........

253.8 cutting back on carbs today. Lazy day, wrote an article for the Elks paper, confirmed who will or won't be working with me tomorrow night at the lodge as host. I have brought my last suitcase out of the closet to organize its contents from my move in April 2014 (!). Mainly loose photographs I need to put in photo albums. I've had some pretty crazy dreams the last two nights, I wonder if I work on it tonight what kind of dreams will come? emoticon

253.4 132/105 104 before tapping I goofed and turned the TV on first. Time to turn it off and get a better start with the BP.
Had the chicken, sausage, mushrooms and peppers off 2 kebabs last night for dinner. Passed on the corn and pineapple, even though it smelled scrumptious. Passed on Bingo as well, they had the microphone turned up too high and I was worn out. more later......

254.6 119/91, 95 after tapping.
The burger with green chili did not hurt yesterday and I have to work Bingo again, so I think I will stick with my standard spam/egg/cheese breakfast and have the burger for lunch.
After Bingo I'll be help prepping and serving at the Drug Awareness dinner at the lodge. Probably have kebabs and salad.
Ended up having creamed chip beef over boiled eggs for dinner last night.

BP 114/89 after second session of tapping today.
I had a cheeseburger w/o the bun and smothered in green chili for lunch--yum! at least it gave me more protein. I'll fix either a taco salad or crab salad before my meeting at 6:30 tonight.

I was able to stick with the salmon and salad last night, but ate the apples from a piece of pie! Did tapping again this morning and will fix my go to breakfast of spam and eggs. I work selling pickles at the bingo today and get a free "lunch"--only problem is it is all carbs and fat. The one "healthy" choice-club salad, uses processed meats and cheese and not enough of them to get any protein. I may peel a couple of boiled eggs and take them along to add to the "salad".

10 minutes on the elliptical, 10 on the bike.
5 oz can of tuna, 1 TB whipped dressing, half a green pepper cut in strips and 1 piece of string cheese for lunch. Took my B6, B100, Vit C, Potassium, Magnesium and Vit E with lunch. Now I'm going to the lodge to help prep the steak dinners for tonight.
Drizzly day, but for a change, I am not down!

Did my tapping meditation today for 14 minutes, checked my blood pressure 120/99, better than yesterdays 144/95!
Turkey spam, 2 eggs and 1 slice colby-pepper jack cheese for breakfast and it tastes absolutely yummy and satisfying!
note to self, get up earlier, tap first, then fix breakfast.......

3 days of Chinese food, but I did not gain any more after last week. I also added 3 days of exercise. Total loss 6 pounds in 14 weeks. Hoping that now I've identified the biggest trigger, being around smokers, I can choose to avoid the overeating. emoticon emoticon

I think I dreamed it out last night, my struggles with the last few weeks. I've been working around smokers and silently craving cigarettes, but I quit almost 5 years ago! So I've been eating and drinking more and haven't been able to follow anything. Now that I know, hopefully I will be more mindful of what I am doing.
Great Chinese food last night, so the scale is up again. It WILL go DOWN again! emoticon emoticon

Thanks Joann. After a completely horrid food week, I am calming down again. Weight went back up to 258 yesterday then down to 256 this morning (thank God!). I had made it to 249 a couple of weeks ago, then mentally lost it. My twisted mind thinks I don't deserve to be slim and I have to break that barrier! I deserve to be healthy and happy and active and fit! emoticon emoticon I declare I am and will be!

Down, then up, down, then up........... I need to get moving! It has been rainy the last week and I haven't been able to force myself out of the house. I'm responsible for cashiering at bingo today and there is a huge jackpot for tonight's bingo where I will go to play! Errands to run, then pack for GA the rest of the week. 8 am flight out on Saturday, 7 am flight back home on Tuesday. I know I will get walking in the airports, hopefully I will get some on the ground in Valdosta.

I had the wrong address for the session in Golden. I drove through snow, ice fog and on snow packed roads when I didn't have to! What a mess that was! emoticon
I'm back to eating 3 meals a day, mostly high protein with some popcorn and WW ice cream pops thrown in. The balancing act appears to be working, emoticon is headed down.
I'm going to try and take it outside today when it warms up a little more and carry my 3 pound weights to walk around the block. I may just be losing muscle, I haven't done anything but cardio and then only once since the 13th. I need to keep all the muscle I can! My IT Band is really giving me fits right now so I have to mix it up.
emoticon I was taking turmeric for a few weeks before my blood work and my C-reactive protein dropped 10 points. emoticon I wasn't having the problems with the ITB, so I'm going to go back to taking the turmeric and see if it helps. That 6:30 wake up call with a leg of steel is no fun.

Had a Saturday slump, but kept calorie range down. Body is rebounding from just protein and I'm having trouble getting back to just protein. emoticon Wore the SPAT on my panties over the hip and it did not work. Today it goes back on the shoes.
I have a training class in Golden this morning, unknown what the day will bring. Thank you God for another day of freedom and sunshine!

Ate Long John Silver's fried fish yesterday and even though I picked off the breading, the scale jumped up another pound and a half. Looks like the remainder will go in the trash today!
So much to do, all day to do it, where is my motivation when I need it? emoticon

good news or bad news? I have an appointment for a steroid injection for my knee next Tuesday. The computers were down when I went to see the doctor. I explained how much trouble I was having walking and told him what the orthopedist told me about bone on bone arthritis in my knee. He asked why he didn't do a steroid injection--I don't know! So he set up for me to come back and get one Tuesday. If that doesn't work, then it will be knee replacement surgery. I want to be able to walk again!
Not doing well in controlling my eating, but will keep trying to shake this off and move forward.

Snow on the lilacs this morning. Doctor today, 2nd try on inventory tomorrow. Bingo last night was fun, quality time with DIL Debbie, didn't win any games. I'll probably come back and take a nap after the appointment!

Scale continues to creep up. Not giving up. Lots to do this week so no gym for a few days. Hopefully the muscle will start burning some fat! Plan to keep making better choices, 3 meals a day. Hopefully busy enough no snacks needed. emoticon

having a rough time getting back to SB diet. I've had the munchies the last 2 afternoons.
I made it to the gym today and the SP tracker tracked my workouts on the elliptical, bike, and treadmill--hooray! Gave me the highest step count I've registered yet. I had to track my strength training.
Sad that it does not compute total calories or sleep, it would be perfect then.
ah well. Have to get up early and head to the lodge to do inventory there and learn some more. Will probably eat lunch there. I'll be interested to see how many steps I get.

Lost my focus. In a lot of pain yesterday from my knees and back and had nachos deluxe for supper last night, washed down by 3 drinks. Better today but still craving junk. It doesn't help that the scale keeps bouncing up and down 2 pounds.
My SP tracker came today! Easy to sync, hope it inspires. It is certainly easier to use than the BodyMedia. I may just wear the BM to bed to keep track of my sleep until August when my contract runs out. It quit measuring exercise a couple of days ago, even after cleaning. I'll test out the new tracker tomorrow at the gym!
Tonight is Elks lodge meeting so it will be another late night. But I can sleep in tomorrow! yay!

Weight back down most of the way, water gain. I ordered the SparkPeople tracker yesterday, I didn't see an option to have it show on my signature. Maybe after it processes and ships it will show it.
The Body Media is not tracking exercise any more, just sleep, steps and calories. I'll keep using it for the steps and sleep until SP gets here, then I'll drop it all together.
Happy to be eating at home again! Fixed salmon and broccoli last night for supper.

Weight bounced back up 3 pounds after crazy eating yesterday. My fault, my choice.
Today I chose to go to the gym and walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes, back to my protein and vegetables.
Ordered the tracker from Sparkpeople for myself and my brother as my BodyMedia device is no longer tracking activity. I will miss the sleep monitor, but the company was bought out and I can no longer order a replacement.

Interesting that I lost more weight the week I was eating out then eating at home! Portion control? Hope it works this weekend. I have 2 brunches to go to, neither are loaded with vegetables.
Stupid BodyMedia tracker is not showing any activity for 2 days now, even though I've been going to the gym. I'll try cleaning it after it charges again and see if that will help. I really hate to change to a different tracker, but I will need to do it in August when my monitoring contract runs out.

Even though I ate out for lunch and dinner, I lost weight yesterday through smart choices. Met with friends for lunch and ordered the chopped salad--it was totally diet friendly! I couldn't see the blue cheese dressing on the salad and could barely taste it. The turkey and ham included with the greens could not have been more than 2 oz total!
Last night's dinner with the Elks, they served chicken with lemon and caper sauce, roasted potatoes, mixed vegetables (corn, peas, green beans, carrots), tossed greens, rolls and butter. I had the chicken with the salad and ranch dressing and nixed the rest. It didn't even hurt too much!
Today I have another lunch with a friend and we're going to a soup and salad place and tomorrow night an installation dinner at the Elks (salmon). Then I can lay off eating out for a while. (whew!)
The nice thing about the 2 challenges I'm on, they keep me accountable--today is one weigh in and Sunday the next weigh in; so I have to keep eating healthy continuously. Not perfect, just healthy.

Talking to myself...........

"If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."
Henry Ford

Since my husband died, I haven't been able to think of one good reason to lose weight. This past weekend I went to a Garth Brooks concert and walking 1/4 of a mile wore me out! I've been in denial about how out of shape I am. That sparked me to face myself and restart the South Beach diet this weekend. I CAN LOSE WEIGHT. I AM LOSING WEIGHT.
Like the little engine that could, keep repeating, "I think I can", I think I can, I think I can. We are what we think.

Rain and snow outside. Perfect day to use the Walk Away the Pounds tapes. Started with the one mile, I made it half way. I will work it again when I get home from working Bingo.
I was going to make a veggie quiche for breakfast (no crust), but ran out of time. I'll make it later.

Picked up my hemmed gown for the Elks and dropped off my white dinner jacket to be cleaned and pressed. Went to the gym, but I was wore out! Completed 10 minutes and listened to my body and left. Picked up 4 dinner plates and a mandolin type slicer. I was looking for a slicing fork, to make even slices in meat, but couldn't find one.
Ended up laying down for an hour, don't know why I was so tired. Made a hamburger topped with cheese, chunky salsa and light sour cream for supper. With a couple of cups of coffee, I should be able to make it through tonight's meeting, then early bed! still a good day.......

Not totally SB yesterday, I wanted to use up some of the left overs. I made it to the gym and kept portion control on dinner. Messed up with my tracking, the ham and cheese should have been snack or lunch.
V8, 2 oz roast beef, 2 eggs and 1 slice ultra thin cheese for breakfast. Headed for the gym to do my strength exercises and cardio this morning, then take magazines to DIL and wash clothes and dust this afternoon.
I picked up some hummus and fresh asparagus yesterday for snacks. Either hamburger or salmon for dinner tonight, salad for lunch.

owning up. entered my current weight and measurements to start the pound a week challenge with the 55+ pounds to lose team. I gained 9 pounds since I measured last.
After all the walking Friday night I gained muscle (and weight). stiff, sore, and lazy yesterday. Today is a new start, a new day, my present to me.
Going back on the South Beach plan 2 week start up guide.
Back to the gym today, then grocery shopping, then prepare meat and veggies for lunch. Lots to read for motivation, God has given me everything I need to succeed.
