Feeling Crappy

I guess I somehow lost those first 6 lbs too fast, because now either my pancreas or liver is aggravating me again. I remember when I lost the 65 lbs the first time around I got this bloated feeling under the left side of my ribs in front. It wa... Read more

Feeling great. Almost everyday I've been back, I have had a very bloated feeling under my ribs. I have only had 5 cups of water so far today, but also ate differently today. Every diet I've seen tells you to eat cereal for breakfast, so I did al... Read more
That Daggone Sodium
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      2 comments

I try and try - but there is so much hidden sodium in the foods - I try dusting it off the chips & if I have french fries I do the same. But, I still go over the amount I'm supposed to have. I canned my own veggies to help with this, but get in ... Read more
Still Keeping With It

Everyday it becomes a little bit easier to eat right & exercise. One of my problems was not getting enough to eat, based on my activity level that day. But wanting to lose weight makes it hard for me to want to eat. Drinking all the water leaves... Read more

Need To Be More Aware Again
Monday, November 06, 2006      1 comments

I have slacked off in awareness of what I need to do. By this, I mean I am not as careful, nor have I had time to log everything I need to log. I am not eating over my calories, but am eating the wrong foods. I have a bloated feeling more often ... Read more
