I'm Ba-ack!

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I thought I had been here a few months ago, but when I looked at the date of my last blog post, it was over a year ago!! Time flies! But now I am back and I am going to try (keyword - TRY) to keep at it. I have lost 20 pounds and got stuck on that darned plateau once again. Then I lost momentum and let things slide last September when my husband was hospitalized and received a heart transplant. Talk about stress!! This is his second heart transplant, so I should have been ready for it, but it was stressful nonetheless.

I have not put any weight back on, but I haven't lost any more either. I want to be down another 20 pounds by the time I leave for a trip to Dallas on July 10. This is not going to be easy, since my husband LOVES sweets! This happened right after his first transplant. He went from someone who rarely ate desserts and sweets to a chocoholic dessert junkie! The big issue? Transplant recipients become diabetics and most of them are insulin-dependent for the rest of their lives! So who should NOT be eating sweets?

Okay. Rant over. Now it is my time to be strong and resist the temptation of those chocolate bars in the freezer and the cheesecake and other yummy stuff he buys for our dessert nearly every day. I CAN say no! I WILL say no!! I can pretend an apple is a brownie, or a banana with fat-free yogurt is cheesecake. REALLY I can. I think...

    Welcome back! Congratulatoins on maintaining the weight during the stress of your husband's transplant. Hopefully you can convince him that fruits make great sweets and that they are much better for him!
