Today's a new day and an opportunity to stay on plan. I was reading some other blogs and see that I'm not alone when it comes to giving in to holiday tempatations. In fact for me it was not even the holiday temptations. I resisted the holiday... Read more

After a month and a half of staying on plan and losing 11 lb., I gave in to temptation on Friday and was not much better yesterday. I got on the scale today and the number definitely reflected how bad I was with my choices the last few days. I... Read more

I am so thankful for all the prayers since putting Jasmine down on Saturday. I've really felt the power of prayer. I've been sad yet peaceful. I feel like I'm grieving in a healthy way and I attritubute that to all the prayers. I'm not using... Read more

I am very sad today as I had to put Jasmine, my cat of over 15 years down yesterday. She had her lung removed 5 years ago and survived cancer. She did so well that I'm grateful for the 5 years after that that I had with her. Recently she spen... Read more

Wow, just one good day of clean on plan eating and I feel 10 lb. lighter. It's amazing! I've gotten all those food thoughts out of my head. I write my food down, call it to a food sponsor and commit to eating that and only that for the day. ... Read more

Well, last night I got so out of control that no amount of food was doing it. Roger is out of town and I just let the house go and got into the food. I talked to Roger last night and he really encouraged me to go back to Greysheet. He told me... Read more

then came home and got back into the grazing/snacking mode. Geez, it's so frustrating. I went out of town for several days and we ate very healthy. I made healthy choices, ate only 3 meals a day and no snacks. Today I found myself back home ... Read more
Be a friend to yourself

In my devotion time this morning I read that we are to love God, love our neighbor and love ourselves. If I can love God and my neighbor, why is it so hard to love myself just the way I am. I wouldn't talk to a friend the way I talk to myself ... Read more

My calories are not where they should be to lose weight consistently but they are better than they were 3 days ago, much better. Also, for three days I have committed to log my food into my food tracker and have exercised 2 of the three days. ... Read more

Sunday, October 11, 2009      0 comments

Keeping a food journal and staying connected is not only keeping me on track with my eating but it is helping me to learn what works and what doesn't. Yesterday I remained hungry all day which caused me to graze. I also ate out and made some f... Read more

to have a plan and stick to it. It really is that simple. Failing to plan is planning to fail. In one Sparkmember's signature line she writes about commitment saying "you are either IN or OUT. There's no in between". That really spoke to me... Read more

Today is the day for me to stop the pattern of bingeing and restricting. I will follow a modified Greysheet plan and eat ONLY what I have planned. I have entered my food for the day into my nutrition tracker and it is a reasonable amount of fo... Read more
Trying a new pla.
Monday, May 25, 2009      2 comments

For me structure is so important in my life and structure with my food is a must. There are many food plans that work but the key is sticking to it. I'm trying Wendy Chant's Conquer the fat loss code. It is structured yet it allows for "life... Read more
