Life is a choice. Happy is a choice... You can either go hid in a cave and let life happen or you can embrace it and make choices to get you where you want to be.

Happy isn't something that happens when you lose a 100 lbs.. Happy is what happens when you decide to face adversity and decide to learn from it and smile anyway

Never, ever give up on yourself. You are too important to crawl into a bag of chips and stay there forever.

150 pounds....wish that was all I weighed, but again, no ones fault but my own. Michelle, and anyone else that swings by, I'm back up over 200 pounds, I am so ashamed, disgusted, angry, and any and all other words I can think of. But like you said Michelle, no one to blame but me.
So I am on a mission, I have had a healthy breakfast, one of know that will stay with me, and I am TRACKING. I have used any and all extra points, heck I problem even have dipped into the 2013 allowance, but Michelle, I'm going to do this. I know there are sure to be days that I go astray, but I'm going to take a line from Nell......I know I can't have a little and I know it will get me in trouble, so I'll do without....something like that. Nell has a lot of good stuff.

Okay my friend, congrats on the loss, take it and run with it.

Oh my friend. Last night my hubby and I were talking and he said he didnt' know why I got so upset about my weight. He was perfectly happy with me just the way I am. What did I weigh anyways but about 135. I started crying. I weigh 150 I told him and i'm only five foot. Yup Joan I have the hanging belly, none of my clothes fit, and who is to blame for this misery? MYSELF. Do I give up? Nope I keep on trying. I had a wonderful OP day yesterday. I had no weekly points left so I had to behave. I had earned four AP"s but I wanted to show myself that I could eat within my range. I DID IT. And guess what Joan...I had a few fritos in my taco salad. So I can have a few of the "bad" things as long as I just add them to the good. Humm something new to work on.

On a good note. I lost 1.2 this week. I had a week where the numbers went down instead of steadily up. So i'm ready to take on this week. I can only work this program one day at a time. I'm a food addict and I can't have just one.

In yesterday's post Michelle hit it right out of the park. Like Michelle, I am still on my pity party, and I feel almost sure that some people have read my post of late and thought, ''oh just get over it." Man oh I wish it was that easy.

I feel my belly hanging low again, hate that. My thighs are rubbing together again, hate that as well. Every joint in my body hurts, hate that just as much as I hate the hanging belly. I look as if I have a baby elephants butt, and I keep wondering how long will it be until one of my neighbor's says to me, ''you've put weight on." Yes, I do not have the most tactful of neighbor's. But, no one to blame for any of this but me, I keep asking myself, ''how do these people that have been lifetime make it look so easy." I know the answer, ''they live the lifestyle.'' They made this a lifestyle change where as I am still looking it and using it as a DIET!!!!! Pisses me off to be so whatever it is I am right now.

So what do people like Michelle and I do??? Two choices the way I see it......

1. We keep trying, we keep falling down and we keep getting up.
2. We could crawl back into our little cave with our box or bag of whatever and never ever be heard from again.

Speaking for myself and I hope Michelle or anyone else for that matter will stay with me, and keep plugging alone. I know what it is for me, its not eating too much of the healthy stuff, it eating bag after bag, box after box of all those things that get me in trouble.

I have to remember, each day is a new day, a gift from the man/woman upstairs I not only should respect that more, but I should respect myself more. On we go.
