Another Journey

Entering back into blogsphere and this time it is on a different space ship. After fighting FOREVER the need to deal with my IR problems I have chosen something to help get me started, jump start if you will, toward what I hope is the right direction in getting control of my carb cravings. I began the Medifast program yesterday and plan to follow it for as long as I can to get myself used to eating every 2 to 3 hours for my blood sugar and to help detox from the carbs. I will see how it goes, taking it day by day. I believe I will try and post my lean green meal for the day, but all the other meals are the Medifast meals and they are just with that said...

I will see you on Monday and start the blog journey...

Blogging in 2012

One thing I have learned since I quit blogging so much and have spent my time reading other diet blogs and comments is that when the chips are going down for a dieter the hate comments start. People can be hateful and cruel in their comments to the person who is struggling, starting over, stalled, bingeing, etc. So with that in mind I wonder is it a good thing to blog? Is it a smart thing to put yourself OUT THERE where anyone can pound on you? I'm not sure and plan on deciding how to handle this blog for 2012.  Until then I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Here is a little Christmas pic that always picks my spirits up (and I see it everyday because it's my wallpaper! ha!)

Do You Miss Me?

I miss you guys. I haven't forgotten anybody, I check your blogs daily. I am just not where I need to be and do not want to make this blog where I am whining and complaining that I am struggling, not losing weight, etc. The reason I am not losing...I'm not trying. No, I don't want to be where I am, and yes, I do have a time that I want to begin this journey again. As I have posted before, bare with me...I may not be trying but I haven't given up.

I have very good intentions but just can't seem to motivate myself into doing what I know I need to do and I am nibbling on everything in sight. Whine, whine, whine...Halloween candy, Halloween Candy, Halloween Candy...I hope to very soon jump out of the rut and back into the world I know I need to be in.  Ya'll bare with me!

Hey Everybody, after much turmoil and CRAP I am returning to Weight Watchers and to this blog. Won't be able to start blogging full-time until Wednesday, November 2 so I will begin to catch up soon (Weight Watchers starts tomorrow!)

Happy Halloween!

On Leave from Blogging

Due to some medical family issues I will not be bloggin for awhile. I will check in and see how others are doing, post if I can. At least I can say I've lost everything I had gained...but life is slamming me right now with my father and son, so keep us all in your prayers please.

Thank you

Ok...Here I Go Again...

It's just not working, I want it to work but it's just not, Weight Watchers Point Plus Program that is. Yes I have had this conversation here before. Yes, I have written, "I know I need to eliminate carbs due to my insulin problems." Yes, this is the same ole same ole I have been writing off and on since the beginning of the year. I am eating all my points in as many carb-rich foods that I can. I am eating within the points plus average of 29 points a day or less, and the weight isn't budging. I am miserable like this. I hate trying and no gains (or no losses only gains I guess it is better to say.) SO....for the upteenth time this year I am switching gears. My plan is to begin by going off grains, refined flour and refined sugar and then as I go look at dairy. I am going to hydrate more. I am going to exercise despite the heat and humidity (that is only an excuse.) AND...drum roll please...I want to be like Dawn at At New Dawn and get my ass off the scale. If I don't have the loss I expect I become depressed and feel like giving up. My mind-set is set each day according to what the scale says. My goal is to get up every morning and just work my own program and a month from now, two months from now maybe, whatever feels comfortable, check my weight.  Tomorrow is a big family get-together/dinner at my house. There is going to be hot dogs and good desserts. I have decided I am going to partake within reason and Sunday morning when I rise my program begins. 30 DAYS...I can eliminate bad carbs for that long, and go from there.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and a safe one. Please bare with me as I try and figure out what is best for me and for my health. I want to lose this weight to be healthy and BE HERE to take care of my son. I WILL do this!!!


P.S. I read a blog post on Princess' site that said, "why don't people post the weight? It's just a number..."  You are so right Girlfriend, I hate to say it but starting this I need to be honest:

Beginning weight 2008: 236 lbs
Today's Weight: 210 lbs

For as long as I can stand it, that's the last number for awhile...
