My Resolution for 2016 - Do Not Eat Unless Hungry

My old mantra (getting skinny is more fun than getting fat) was getting stale, even though it is still true. I have begun to suspect that I have an eating disorder (binge eating) and that my focus on sugar, while noble and not wrong, may be missing the mark. If I can really not eat unless hungry (with some exceptions, of course), and if I can be reminded of this every time I open my spark page, I think I will see more success than I have over the last two years as I have watched my weight ...
My old mantra (getting skinny is more fun than getting fat) was getting stale, even though it is still true. I have begun to suspect that I have an eating disorder (binge eating) and that my focus on sugar, while noble and not wrong, may be missing the mark. If I can really not eat unless hungry (with some exceptions, of course), and if I can be reminded of this every time I open my spark page, I think I will see more success than I have over the last two years as I have watched my weight creep up a little.

I have been a proud and happy member of SparkPeople for 8 years. It is an extremely important part of my life. I feel like I am the ultimate work in progress. After an initial loss of 40 lbs. in 6 months, I have struggled. My struggles have included gaining back some of the weight and just bouncing around at a certain level. I think things are finally moving in the right direction again.

I have been plagued by the sugar monster. I have made quite a few false starts in my efforts to control my sugar consumption. However, I have read many books and watched many videos about the dangerous effects of sugar, and they are finally beginning to sink in.

Another goal I have for 2016 is to become a better role model for my fellow sparkers. I hope you get some inspiration from my page.

Personal Information:
I have lived in Northern NJ for most of my life. I have two great kids, a 30 year old daughter (attorney and aspiring tri-athlete) and a 27 year old son who is an assistant basketball coach at a junior college. I have also been married to the same guy for 38 years.

Other Information:
For most of my life I was not much of a reader. At some point I started listening to audiobooks and loved them. I especially liked Michael Connelly and Sue Grafton. But recently I haven't done it so much, partly because I currently have a relatively short commute.

I work as a technical writer in the pharmaceutical industry. It is contract work, so I am not sure how long my current job will last.

Thank you for my goodie. My grandma is one of the most special people that has ever walked this planet. She is a complete wonder and joy and I love her so much and if it is her time to go then I will miss her very much. I am being selfish but I don't want her to go, I need her and cannot imagine my life without her in it.

My grandma said to my mom that she wished they could just chop her head off and keep that because that is the only thing that is not in pain. My Aunt Vivian was shocked because my grandma had told the doctors that she was not in pain anywhere. My grandma just does not want any extreme measures.

Thanks again for your kindness and prayers it really means a lot to me.

Prayers are needed for my Grandma, she will be 94 next month. She ended up in the hospital last night with a diagnosis of congestive heart condition. They sent her home this morning and she is currently resting. My mom and dad are on their way over right now and hopefully will find out more. They don't know much at this point. I did not sleep very well last night.

Thinking of you! Hope you did not get any more snow. 5 degrees is far to cold for me. Stay warm and tell the hubby to stay home to wait until it warms up a little.

You rock girlfriend!!!

Have a great Wednesday.

Mini-challenge for you: Change YOUR focus ...

Focus on: What you can do, not what you can't do
Focus on: What foods you can have, not foods you can't have
Focus on: How far you've come, not how far you have to go
Focus on: What you're doing right, not what you're doing wrong

Say "I don't ..." instead of "I can't ..." It puts the power to choose in YOUR hands. YOU are in control because You are a Champion! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for my gardening tools. I really do need new ones, mine are all breaking.

Hope you don't get another snow storm. Stay warm and dry. But.....you do have to go outside and make a snow angel. Whenever we get snow, which is not very often, but when we do I go out and make a snow angel. I then try to make a little snow man but the snow never sticks together it is to powdery. Keep warm.

Have a wonderful day today.
