BMI
Sunday, May 30, 2021      9 comments

Today I decided to calculate my BMI from a website for one of our local hospitals. I was shocked to find out that 41 (my number) is Morbidly Obese. I have been losing weight since January and was feeling really good about myself. At 218 pound... Read more

Started NOOM on January 2, 2021 at 244 lbs. Finally got a smart phone and needed it for the app. Today, May 16, 2021, I am 1 lb. short of my goal of 215. I have been logging my food and my weight every day. It was surprising to see the weight lo... Read more

Who Are You Blaming?
Tuesday, April 13, 2021      5 comments

All these years, from childhood, I have used food as a reward. I have curly hair and my mom had straight hair. Every time she brushed my hair, I screamed. Washing my hair was a nightmare. To appease me, she would bribe me with candy. As far... Read more
But I'm Still Hungry
Monday, April 12, 2021      5 comments

I have always felt more comfortable with something in my mouth. Started smoking at 16 and sucked on cough drops after I quit. Gum worked to satisfy until my teeth were replaced with crowns and the gum stuck to my teeth. Snacks have been filli... Read more
Hooray for May
Saturday, May 16, 2020      7 comments

So far, so good. I am adjusting to real food and have eliminated Nutrisystem meals and Dr. Gundry's products. Unfortunately, Dr. Gundry's products made me break out in a rash and itch all over. I am in the process of getting a refund. It... Read more

I am eating more of the food from the dining room these days. Staying away from fried foods and bread as much as I can. So far, so good. I am maintaining my 20 lb. weight loss.... Read more
May 1st Commitment for the Month
Saturday, May 02, 2020      3 comments

This has been a stressful week. My cell phone company informed me that the network no longer supports my old style phone. I had to finally give in and buy a smart phone. The first one I bought cost over $200 and would not work. They wouldn't... Read more
Way of Life
Saturday, April 25, 2020      8 comments

Eating the food available to me this month has worked out. I am not purchasing additional Nutrisystem meals. I am enjoying the meals being cooked in our kitchen, especially the desserts. I am watching my calories and feel good about the fact ... Read more
Renewing My Commitment
Saturday, April 18, 2020      2 comments

Easter is over. My birthday is over. I only gained a pound for my birthday. I have been thinking about what I can do to stop the snacking. One snack isn't so bad, but I find that I eat 3 time when I start craving a snack. I just started d... Read more
Down A Pants Size
Saturday, April 11, 2020      6 comments

Well, I gained 2 lbs. this week. I know why and am addressing it. In the meantime, I have dropped a pant size. I am happy to be comfortable in smaller pants. It is hard to be cooped up in this beautiful weather. It snowed, covering the... Read more
Easter is my favorite holiday
Saturday, April 04, 2020      4 comments

I love hard boiled eggs. I used to sit at the table after we colored them and peel and eat them. The past few years we have been coloring eggs here for Easter. They let us keep some that we colored. This year we probably won't do that, but ... Read more
Sabotage
Saturday, March 28, 2020      3 comments

Yup, here I go again. Easter candy bought and partially consumed. I laugh at the Noom commercials. The people learn what they are doing and magically stop. I know what I am doing, I love to eat. I eat to celebrate my weight loss. That sabo... Read more
One Month Status

I am happy to report that I have lost 11 lbs. and 9 inches in the past month. I had already lost my first 9 lbs. and hadn't sabotaged myself before starting Nutrisystem. So that ends up totaling 20 lbs. that I have actually lost. I am f... Read more
Weekly Checkin
Sunday, March 15, 2020      2 comments

I am struggling with snacks. I figure, maybe, if I write about it, it will stop being an issue. To compensate, I have snacks in the house that are around 150 calories, instead of the high fat, high sugar snacks I was eating before. I was... Read more
