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!

Struggling to overcome the past and live in the present. I was born to be strong and healthy, I need to let it happen. I feel so ungrounded!

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.

Waiting for my Prince Charming appears to be a lot like waiting for a Fairy Godmother, silver bullet or miracle pill.......
I found my Prince and then lost him to cancer. In between we laughed and loved and argued, and I stayed the same. When I made up my mind, I could do anything. Since losing him, I haven't been able to make up my mind to do anything.
But it is time, it is today, my very favorite day! I hope we can all help each other and enjoy the journey!
Time to let go of the past and live in today, live for wonderful gift of today, the present (of all presents!). emoticon

Swiss cheese and pretzel crisps for breakfast. Headed to work Bingo, then meet a friend to take our dresses to be hemmed at the seamstress. Not sure what I will pick for lunch, but planning on chicken with noodles and peas, salad tonight. Focusing on 3 small meals a day and a small snack. Tomorrow the gym (I hope!).

Back from Phoenix and where do I start? Feeling a bit overwhelmed this morning. I've been up 2 hours and have done nothing but go through emails and talk to DIL on the phone.
I have to go grocery shopping today, which diet will I follow this week? above all needs, I need to focus and eat healthy. I still have to sort through my snail mail, then drag myself out of the house to do something, anything! emoticon

But not enough. When the snow came flying, I stayed home! Snow or not, I have to get out today and tonight.
Tried the counting sugar diet, variation of all low carb-high protein diets. It did kill my cravings from the get go, but I need my fruit and milk! Can't believe a cup of skim milk has 13 grams of sugar!
Anyway, I'm still going to Phoenix Saturday! Yay!

Feeling pretty good today. I went to the gym 5 out of the last 7 days, 2 sessions of strength training, 3 days of cardio. It's a start! The music makes all the difference in the world! emoticon

YAY! took the Ipod to Best Buy and they adjusted the volume for me! Super! now no excuses for not doing cardio.

Had some of my breakfast casserole that is loaded with broccoli in addition to southwest hash browns, eggs, cottage cheese and some cheddar cheese, 98% fat free cream of chicken and about a pound of no skin chicken breast. Very low fat. I had a tuna on toast at the Bingo with a small bag of Cheetos. Not sure what will be for dinner.

Very little if any rain/snow overnight and none today. It is still cold out.

Looking forward to getting up early tomorrow and hitting the gym!

Been to the gym twice this week. 5 cup salad with cucumber and tomato tonight. Been working all day trying to get the sound turned up on my Ipod so I can use it at the gym for motivation. I may have to take it to an apple store and have them show me. I need my mojo back!
Working Bingo tomorrow, so not sure how things will go. Forecast is for rain tonight and snow in the morning.
I want to focus on more veggies and less processed junk in my eating. It is only 18 days before I catch a flight to Phoenix! As will be traveling with my skinny, "normal" friend for 5 days, I might even lose some weight! At least I will be living healthier........... emoticon

Cautiously optimistic, scale is going down, mood has leveled. Depression did a number on me this past year with mood swings. focusing today on loving me and loving my body with healthy choices.

Love working the polls! making new friends, one offered to sponsor me for the Elks Lodge and I put in my application. They all seem so open and supportive and loads of ways to volunteer and help others. I need to keep busy, help others and feel like I make a difference.
Lost a pound a day so far this week. It would be sweet to continue at that rate until my birthday, then I would only be obese and not morbidly obese! emoticon

got up early, showered, went to the garden to pull the covers off the tomatoes, some were frozen. emoticon Went to the gym, then grocery shopping. Found Banquet Cheesy Potato Bake, having that with green chili and 3oz roasted chicken for lunch, all for less than 400 calories!. nothing boring about this lunch!

Medicare blues...........finally got signed up for a drug insurance and supplemental, still don't know how much it will cost me. Appears the new insurance will cost about $380 per month compared to my $209/month since I retired. Not what I had anticipated, but I am hoping it will be manageable. I'll know more after my first round of prescription refills when I enter the "donut hole". emoticon
going to go to the gym to work out tonight and take a mat pilates class. can't seem to get up early, have breakfast and get out before noon........... emoticon

Hi: LINWINAGAIN, thanks for adding me as your friend. I have been trying to answer on your page, but its just not happening. I am not very literate on the computer some days, I am sure is my goof.
I did enjoy my gardening this year, and now I am enjoying reaping tomatoes, swiss chard, and beans. I know what you mean about the heat.

Getting better now that summer is almost over. I'm probably the only one who just doesn't like summer! I just can't take the heat in the summer, fall is my favorite time of the year.
Canned tomatoes from the garden last night, went to the gym and road the bike for 50 minutes, then went to the garden to pick some more tomatoes for canning. Tomorrow I'll go to the garden first thing and pull out the weeds and plants that are done for the year.
Fixed a huge salad of greens, zucchini, cukes, tomatoes, green beans, artichoke hearts, asparagus for lunch today. I'll use up some leftovers for supper tonight.

I wish Robin had figured it out. His death blew me away, he's only a year younger than me, but he was so creative, brilliant, talented, loving............. It broke my heart. I grew up "with" him in Colorado when he was playing Mork and Mindy, Aladdin, and so many others. I don't generally mourn actors that die, but this hit me like a train.
I don't generally watch the Emmys either, but I will tonight to see Billy Crystal give his tribute to Robin. I will hear it, not sure how much I will see because the tears have been flowing all day. Even doing my strength training today has not dried them up.
Going to go make a pot of red chili for supper.

bwa-bwa-bwa! tired of my whining, time to get to work! been losing the same 5-10 pounds for a couple of months, tired of the yo-yoing and lack of focus on my part. I have a big job ahead of me to figure out how to survive retirement with my finances, health and sanity!
need to get physical today at the gym and the garden, then start writing random thoughts in my planner/diary to explore my options.
have a great day everyone.........

plugging along, waiting for phone call to set up health care thru Medicare. I hit the big 65 Nov 1st and trying to figure out what to do to avoid the "donut hole" on drugs. I went from 4 scripts to 7 this year and look to have to pay $6k in the first month on any plan............ emoticon

depression is so weird. meds keep me "happy", but not necessarily productive. Today i finally had enough of my dirty house and vacuumed and mopped the floors, cleared off some of the kitchen cabinets and now ready to read the paper....... hope this next week is more focused...

After being lazy since Tuesday (lots of rain), I made it back to the garden to pull weeds in my patch, trim back the zucchini, went to the gym for half an hour on the bike, then back to Home Depot to get some props for one of the tomato cages that fell over and to stake the cucumbers so they will grow up the trellis. 5 hrs of just messing around, but lots of fun!
pulled some little beets to cook for supper and 3 little cukes. the tomato plants look like they've been treated with radiation they are so big and green, like something from the old sci-fi flick The Swamp Thing............lots of blooms and fruit, but none ripe yet........

made it back to the gym today and did my last tour of "duty" at the garden. Now I can concentrate on my patch!

water weight back up today, I don't know what will be the result when I go back to the doctor, but I will never give up! I'm eating better every day and keeping portions under control, eventually I will reach the weight my body needs.

Having my first cucumber from the garden for supper! along with boiled cabbage and a hydroponic tomato from the grocery store, maybe a lean cuisine spaghetti.....

Went to the movies instead of the gym, saw The Jersey Boys. Really good show, it focused on the music, not the mob or sex.........

Tomorrow back to the gym and garden emoticon

34 days until 8/29/14 and only 31 pounds to goal of 224. 10 more pounds to lose this month to go from morbidly obese to "obese". I am finally heading in the right direction again.
I went to the Mother Cabrini Shrine yesterday and walked the 327 steps to the top, very slowly........ emoticon but I made it, emoticon and I was rewarded with a fantastic 360 degree view of a thunderstorm brewing in the mountains and sweeping across the plains to Denver and beyond! You could see clear to the horizon to the east, see the cars headed west on I-70, the surrounding foothills and rising mountains. Absolutely awesome whichever way you turned.
Today I need to check the progress of the garden, pick up the weeds, go to the gym and farmer's market. I may go to Heritage Square in Golden to walk around. The last time I was there they had a dinner playhouse that I took some friends to see, both the friends and theater are gone now, but that was about 9 years ago. It will be good exercise to walk around at any rate.

Finally shaking off this funk! so glad to be back in Colorado and starting to settle in more. My old Body Media Core armband gave out this week, so I ordered a new one today. Following South Beach/low carb eating, it has been the only way I could lose weight in the past. As much as I love bread, it loves me more and sticks to my belly, thighs and hips! Looking forward to football this year, hoping the Broncos will give Pat Bowlen something to cheer about, God bless him!
I'm headed for the gym today, then have my wash to do, then I'm going up to the Mother Cabrini Shrine and try to make it to the top for more exercise! I'm going to start taking advantage of living here in Colorado and use it for my cardio!

47 days until 8/29/14 and only 35 pounds to goal of 224. 14 more pounds to lose this month to go from morbidly obese to "obese".
Slight slip. my motivation went down the drain this week for some reason. I think it was when I figured out the budget for the month, let's just say it was not pretty! I hate being broke! I just have to watch my p's and q's and wait until next month and all will be well.
In the mean time, I made a zucchini pizza crust that tasted absolutely fantastic last night! nothing like bread, but it was chewy and satisfied and that's all that matters to me.
Off to the garden to see what is happening............. emoticon

Added beans (chili) to the mix and did not lose any weight yesterday. Went to the garden and worked for 45-60 minutes pulling weeds. not much after, came home and sat in the a/c, had a salad. Picked up sugar free Eskimo pies at the store on the way home and had one.

repeated the chili tonight, we'll see what happens tomorrow.

53 days until 8/29/14 and only 32.2 pounds to goal of 224.

a little disappointed this morning, then I "got real" and realized if I can keep losing .6 pounds a day (which is a lot!), I will reach my goal! With it only being day 5 on the SB, I'm still losing and have lost almost 7 pounds. I was a little hungry last night, but I only had a snack for lunch and then a regular amount for dinner. I need to be eating more during the day to keep my body stoked and get back to exercising at the gym.

I watered the garden and pulled some weeds this morning, called my brother and just finished lunch. I had 2 flat bottom taco shells with slow cooker salsa chicken, Santiago's green chili with cheddar cheese on top, and a Yoplait. Now I have to check out some SB recipes, make a shopping list and go to the store. I need to cook some meat for the week and more veggies. I need some new stuff!

54 days until 8/29/14 and only 32.8 pounds to goal of 224. Going to see the new Transformers flick in 3D with my DIL in about an hour. not planning much else, but I need to "do" something for exercise. Tomorrow I have to pull weeds in my garden and check on the watering, go to the farmer's markets for my week's supply of tomatoes and cook some kind of meat, get stuff for salads and other veggies......... and the beat goes on!

Figured out today I only started the South Beach Diet for real on Wednesday, which means I have another 12 days! I've got to check out the recipes so I can make pizza! that is the only bread I miss right now.......

37 days to 8/29/14 goal of 15% weight loss, 33.4 pounds to go. South Beach, no alcohol and green tea with lemon appear to be working! made it to the gym and did the wash! yay me! emoticon

37 days to go. I am continuing with the South Beach Diet, no alcohol, and green tea with lemon as well as add some exercise. I worked out on the treadmill for 30 mins and recumbent bike for 35 yesterday. I'm reading the book on how to super charge the SB diet, I want to do the core exercises today. I may go to the garden tonight and pull some weeds before the fireworks. emoticon

Breakfast was leftover Ruby Tuesday's salad bar with added 3 oz of salsa chicken. I treated myself to Ruby's and kept to salad bar, chicken bella with spaghetti squash. and, I ate half only! but my dessert was yoplait, 2 slices of cheese and pistachios emoticon it is okay, I still lost 1.2 pounds, after losing almost 3 pounds the day before. I will be careful now, because the loss may slow down............

40 days to 8/29/14 goal of 15% weight loss, 38 pounds to go.
picked up some pistachios and broccoli at Sam's Club. Unable to find the South Beach diet book there or at Walmart, so headed to our local used bookstore. Since they are "downtown" Arvada, I will get some walking in and take time to explore! "downtown" is about 5 blocks long and 2 blocks wide.
this afternoon I'll read the book and do my wash, steam broccoli for supper with some slow cooker salsa chicken and a tomato. Salad for lunch

Doctor follow up today. First time I saw my medical record notes, ever. New doc shared them with me and set up schedule for follow up testing of cholesterol, upped my blood pressure meds and told me I have atherosclerosis (build up of plaque in the arteries). He recommended the South Beach diet (low carb) and set up blood tests for a month from now and then follow up with him. whoa.
so, all stops pulled out, anything I can think of to help me get the weight off, anything that has helped in the past, will be used in the next month. I want that 15% off! emoticon

Hi Graphics2! if we never give up, we will succeed!

42 days, 38 pounds to go to make my 15% goal by 8/29/14. I managed to lose 5.8 pounds this week, the same 5-6 pounds I've been gaining and losing for the last month. This time they are staying off!! emoticon

Got up early to go to the garden and water before it gets hot out and I'm still sitting at my computer playing around. My Body Media still is charging, so I can use that for an excuse for now.

Will go to the Arvada Farmer's Market after the garden, for some tomatoes and other veggies.

43 days to go. Going to a self help seminar today, hoping for tools to help self! Vegetarian lunch being served, may go to TGI Fridays after or probably talk myself out of it and come home, we'll see how it goes.
