It has been way too long...

I am not really very good at posting on my blog spot, but decided to try again
My MS is getting worse when it comes to walking. My pain is bearable. I am doing different things to combat it.
Last Mothers day, by dear children shared the stomach flu that they all had. I haven't been that sick in many, many years. A couple days later, I was figuring out what I had eaten and how I really cut down because of the flu. I just kept it up. I have been journaling all of my food ever since. The good days, which are most, and the bad days, which are a few. I have held myself accountable. I have decided that I am too old to worry about diets. I eat, mostly, good foods. I do not eat processed foods often. It is like about 10% of my diet. I try to eat mostly organic. I am happy and I want ice cream. LOL! I have 2.6 lbs to go to get some ice cream. Ice cream is my down fall, so it is really the only food I am limiting.
Since I do not feel deprived, I am doing much better. Deprivation is the worst thing you can do on changing eating patterns. I also, am not bringing myself down for messing up. It happens and the next day will be ok. It is ok to be human. I have lost 17.4 lbs since Mothers Day. Is that going too slow? No, it is just right. Slow but sure, wins the race. If I hadn't started journaling, I would still have a huge tummy, now I just have a medium tummy. LOL! Will I be at my goal in a year? I doubt it, but anything is better then nothing.
I hope everyone is having a great Mid October day. It is warming up here, 54 and clouds.
