Cooking and food prep

Friday, January 23, 2015      0 comments

I cleaned out my refrigerator and freezer today. I threw out a lot of freezer stuff that I should have cooked and didn't. I am starting to cook all of the proteins I purchased yesterday now and freezing the rest. I bought a LOT of meat! Four fr... Read more

I walked for three hours without sitting. This is huge for me. No spasms and no swearing and no panic because I could feel my back giving out. I just focussed on my breathing and my posture, leaned when I could, propped my foot on a shelf or car... Read more

i went to the movies tonight with my friend. I packed a container with frozen grapes and brought a bottle of water. My friend had a big soda and nachos and even though those nachos smelled amazing I was perfectly content with my grapes. I ate th... Read more

Mini rant

Saturday, January 17, 2015      1 comments

It really annoys me when people look at me and assume that I have an uncontrollable relationship with food. I am not a food addict. My weight is not the result of a food addiction. Look I like food and the wrong foods at that but I get so sick o... Read more

I am extremely obese. There is no way around it, that is my reality. I'm so heavy that my doctor said that no matter how hard I work at it I will not be able to lose weight without surgery. As much as I like him I do not agree with him and am go... Read more

Okay just to get back on my program I weighed myself this morning. So my official weight loss from 12/18 to 1/16 or my first month of healthy eating choices is 14 pounds. Today I'm heading out to lunch with another friend but a salad is on the... Read more

Weigh in

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      0 comments

I have been weighing myself at work and since my last day was Friday I can't do that anymore. I invested in a scale. Just to be on the safe side I weighed myself before I left Friday and it matches what my home scale said. So as of today I have ... Read more

Well I had a pity party weekend and ate once a day and badly at that. I'm back on track today though. One of my co-workers stopped by to talk for a few minutes and inspired me to eat the veggies I have in the refrigerator vs. running out to gra... Read more

Holidays over

My daughter is on her way to the airport now to fly home. I hate saying good bye to her but this time is different because she said "See you soon" and that was music to my ears. In March I will be moving to New York and we will be within a coupl... Read more

Eight pounds down since 12/18

Wednesday, December 24, 2014      5 comments

I know it's mostly water but I'm glad to see it go nonetheless. I have stopped eating junk and fast food (for the most part). Despite my resolve to get healthy my body wasn't listening and I ended up sick again this weekend. I've spent the last ... Read more

Re-set my goals

Thursday, December 18, 2014      1 comments

I have been really stuck in a rut. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until one of my friends said "You've sure been sick a lot lately" on Sunday. I realized that I have been sick a lot, tired a lot, irritable a lot etc. I also have develope... Read more

Small victory

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      2 comments

I went out to lunch because one of my team is leaving today. It was sad and bittersweet but I planned my food and I ordered what I planned. I had one small piece of bread and left the rest there. This is a victory for me because usually I order... Read more

Catching up with myself

Tuesday, October 14, 2014      0 comments

I'm slowing down so I can catch up with myself. It seems I've been experiencing one thing after another this year. This weekend I went shopping and bought healthy foods. I cooked on Sunday and I'm set for the week. Yesterday and today I skipped... Read more
