Adjusting my patience factor...

Saturday, July 27, 2013      1 comments

I am going to need some time to adjust to the fact my weight loss is going to take longer than I want it to. On reflection it took me three years to pack on the emotional weight, and I maintained it plus or minus 25 pounds for an additional... Read more

HOLY MOLY

Saturday, July 27, 2013      2 comments

I had a cheese quesadilla at Denny's thinking- oh, it's appetizer sized, probably better than a full breakfast, when going out this AM with friends and landing there for coffee talk. That teeny tiny two dollar menu thing? SIX HUNDRED AND... Read more

Perspective and Commitment

Saturday, July 27, 2013      0 comments

Those I have known who have successfully lost and kept weight off all have the same key in common: They changed how they lived, and how they relate to food, permanently. They weren't perfect at it, and in most cases it took well over a year or t... Read more

Back at it....dug out now

Saturday, July 27, 2013      3 comments

It took a full week to recover from the emotional whirlwind of knowing my 13 year old dog and best friend has kidney disease. We lost our walking time together (he also had a minor local surgery which put in on rest and in The Cone of Shame for ... Read more

Almost dug out....

...I started logging my food again and had a successful food target- got enough water, ate a low fat healthy breakfast, small healthy meals throughout the day. I did break my fast food ban though...but it wasn't a complete disaster. I got a mcdo... Read more

Digging out

Wednesday, July 24, 2013      0 comments

I ate OK today and just gave myself some slack and a lot of love. It's been a while since I've been emotionally wiped. I was on a good run and am out of practice of dealing with wringers. We are having a heat wave and I have no AC so I've ... Read more

A big ol' mess

Tuesday, July 23, 2013      3 comments

For the first time in years, I cried at work. Between the dog saga and work stress I just blew a gasket. I'm still struggling. I'm spending some time with friends tonight. Right now I'm chilling with my dog. We can't go for a walk because he had... Read more

My dog is NOT dying....

Monday, July 22, 2013      3 comments

So the vet called to apologize for the message, when he got my message that I was basically freaking out. The kidney disease is NOT in the advanced stages, it will be manageable through diet and a medication and in two months a blood test will l... Read more

My dog is dying

Sunday, July 21, 2013      4 comments

I adopted a dog in 2002 when I was still married. During the divorce, I got the dog. In fact, "I get the dog" was the second thing I said when my husband said our marriage was at its end (the first was a reactionary "I gave up kids to be with yo... Read more

A weird sensation

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      6 comments

On my walk today, and in my clothes today, I felt thin on the inside. I haven't felt that way in AGES. I felt comfortable in my body. Sure I could feel the uncomfortable of the pounds that remain on my body that I need to lose. But I am so certa... Read more

Do it anyway, even if you don't feel like it.

Sunday, July 14, 2013      6 comments

I was all set to mope about today instead of go walking. Zero energy, zero motivation. But I have a dog, and he didn't get to walk yesterday and I couldn't deprive my doggy. It paid off. I met several strangers and chatted it up. I got my ... Read more

You are SEXY....RIGHT NOW.

Friday, July 12, 2013      1 comments

A certain weight NEVER qualifies you as being sexy or nonsexy. Being sexy is a state of mind. It has absolutely nothing to do with your number on the scale. Let me explain through example. I was at an ideal BMI through most of my teens and ... Read more

Hunger-hunger or emotional hunger?

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      2 comments

I can tell now the difference between true hunger and emotional hunger. It's taken me a lot of failed attempts at this to be able to truly understand the difference between the two. Before I eat, I do a kind of check in with my body and min... Read more

And now for something completely positive...

Monday, July 08, 2013      3 comments

My inner judge is having a frickin' field day today telling me how fat, ugly, annoying, and stupid I am. It's killing me. It's been a while since I've felt this negative about myself...even though i did to the 'right things' today. Those o... Read more
