I did so well on Spark People for a year and then as I have done in the past I let life get in the way of my health.

I now feel it is critical for me to lose. Suddenly I feel if I don't do something now my heath is in real jeopardy. When we are feeling fairly healthy and have gotten away with bad eating habits we let all those excuses get in the way of dealing with our weight.

All in all I know that I can do this if I choose to. I remember once hearing Dr Phil say you continue to do things the same way if you are getting something out of it. Let us all look deeply into whatever it is we are getting from overeating. Whether it be comfort food, control or the pleasure of eating foods we like. We can control this if we set our minds.

I am back to tracking my food and taking care of me. Please join me!

    Actually some are just piled on a chair and the others are in boxes waiting to go through. I pulled some out already for the warmer weather and packed most of the heavy stuff away, but still have to sort through some others that are a bit too small to get back in to yet. Daughter has 2 more weeks of school, and then I'll have more time to actually go through these without being interrupted (or having to stop my grandson with whatever mischief he is getting in to at the moment)!

    "Don't get worked up over things you can't change" - good motto, but I still struggle with it. Maybe by 2109 I'll succeed!

    Hope you are immersed in love this week as well!

    I packed and carried boxes today. I took a big load to the local Goodwill.
    I'm not getting much done outside because there's rain tonight and tomorrow.
    Where does this stuff come from?
    Are you feeling better? Do you have bronchitis? emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    WOW!! That's a lot of stuff you cleared out in such a short time! Just plugging away at all the accumulated papers here and trying to sort through stuff. Hoping to get shopping for the stuff for our bathroom remodels this week. Already picked out what kind of tile I want (from pictures, not sure if they have it at the tile shop or how much it will cost), but have to look into a new, longer shower base, what shower door options there are, plus a couple questions about sinks, so I know if I can get the faucets I want for the bathrooms. Making it easier by using the same tile and fixtures in all 3 bathrooms.
