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.

Thursday, November 3, 2011


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!

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...

Weigh In #2

O.M.G. Weighed in yesterday morning  and guess what? I was up +3.4 lbs!!!!! I could not believe it!!! The only thing I can tell I did different is this past week I dipped into my Weekly Points that WW allows you to have, and man oh man was that ever a mistake! I am so disheartened right now. I will write more later when I won't be so down...

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


Yesterday I had my first weigh-in since returning to the dieting/bloggin world a week ago (going to try and weigh in every Tuesday) and it wasn't bad I guess but I was hoping for more, but aren't we always? So I am down -1.4 lbs this first week back. It is depressing to think I had already lost this weight earlier this year, 5 more lbs for my all-time low so far...I think I can, I think I can, I think I can...

I was craving some protein this morning so I had an omelet with 1 egg, some egg whites, 2 slices bacon, spinach and little shredded cheese (sorry about orange plate!):

Later...dang!!!! I had some VERY good grilled chicken for lunch and was so hoongry I forgot to take a picture. Trust me, it was some good protein. I also had a couple of Nabisco Fig Newtons to take care of some need for a sweet.

It continues to be hot and humid here. I will be glad when it is time to make soup. I love all different types of soup but the thought of it right now is blech with this heat. It is hard to believe fall is just a few weeks away. That is my favorite time of year.

Haven't been smiling alot lately, here is a picture of my youngest niece, she always makes me smile--

Back from the Weekend

Didn't do so good this weekend, didn't track any points so I am fixing to try and "remember' and write it down best I can. I got home and got sad and side-tracked.  I didn't binge or anything, I just ate more than I should have. Jacob was sick all weekend, we haven't slept good in weeks due to night-time issues with medication in his pump, plus had family issues going on and work has been a volcanic, molten-lava filled pressure point for quiet awhile now...whine, whine, whine....I want to do much better this week and plan on exercising more. I know that helps in managing stress.

Did anyone try anything good yet on plan this weekend? I have been reading about the new Fiber One Brownies and think I may get some to have on hand with the chocolate monster hits.  How do these things taste? These look pretty good (but only a few bites!)

Started the day off with a Bagel Thin with some peanut butter and Polander's All Fruit grape jelly, 1% milk:
Lunch was a cheeseburger with 1/2 whole wheat bun, lite mayo, onion and one sweet pickle, with some raw carrotts (and yes I dipped those carrots in ketchup!):
Ran out at lunch and bought me some Fiber One Brownies as pictures above: 3 points per the 3 bites!

What kind of snacks do ya'll turn to when it gets down and dirty?

Thursday, August 18, 2011


Not alot to post about today, it is hot and humid once again, we didn't get much of a reprieve. Lot's of stressors today and I have had to fight to keep from eating anything and everything. So far I am still within my points so that is a positive. Hope everyone else is doing good.

Here are the eats so far: Bagel Thin with "fried" egg, didn't get to the nanner, I may get all wild and eat it later.

There is no picture of lunch, that went down the shoot too fast but it was a homemade pizza on wheat pita bread, few pepperoni slice, some low-fat monsterella and alot of spinach leaves. It was pretty tasty. Later in the afternoon I wanted to eat, eat, eat so I ended up having about 5 peanut butter pretzel nuggest with some Crystal Lite.

Dinner is just sliced apple and peanut butter:

That's my Thursday, see you guys tomorrow...maybe I won't feel so BLEH....

Today is What?

I cannot believe it is already August 17th, this year is flying by. Thinking about that also makes me sad that I quit trying there for awhile and lost that time I could of been striving for healthy. It amazes me it took me several months to lose 6 lbs and I yet I was able to put 6 lbs on in about 4 weeks. No use in whining about it, pick up, brush off and move on...
Started this morning out with a Green Monster and it was sour this time, I think it must have been the orange, but I drank it anyway because I NEEDED IT:
Got to work and a friend had made a "Low Fat Fruit Tart" and I had a small piece of that with some coffee (got some more fruit in) pretty good stuff even though it doesn't look too pretty, but I am still hungry, no protein this morn, gonna try and make it until lunch!
Lunch consisted of baked chicken breast with  Crash Hot Potatoes, got the recipe from Mel Gets Fit who got it at Pioneer Woman. It was pretty good, here is the recipe if you want to give it a try:

  • 12 whole New Potatoes (or Other Small Round Potatoes)
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • Black Pepper To Taste
  • Rosemary (or Other Herbs Of Choice) To Taste

Preparation Instructions

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make and cook them until they are fork-tender.
On a sheet pan, generously drizzle olive oil. Place tender potatoes on the cookie sheet leaving plenty of room between each potato.
With a potato masher, gently press down each potato until it slightly mashes, rotate the potato masher 90 degrees and mash again. Brush the tops of each crushed potato generously with more olive oil.
Sprinkle potatoes with kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper and fresh chopped rosemary (or chives or thyme or whatever herb you have available.)
Bake in a 450 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

What's For Breakfast?

I have been reading back through all my tracking earlier in the year and it seems everyday that I eat a good breakfast I have a better day and better week at dropping some. What are some breakfast ideas that you guys depend on?

Here is mine:
Bagel Thin with peanut butter and banana or little jelly, or fried egg
Baked hashbrown topped with 1 scrambled egg, little shredded cheese, 1 slice bacon
Oatmeal or Cream of Wheat
Cereal with 1% milk
Steel-cut Oats overnight in crock pot
Egg McMuffin

My problem is with it being so hot everyday I haven't wanted to fix "hot" food so I haven't been eating the oats and cream of wheat. Today my son wanted a hash brown so I baked a couple and made us what I call "Hashbrown Scramble." I always throw a little Frank's Hot Sauce on there.

What do you think of that Scooby Doo plate? Ha!

And here is what is left of  lunch by the time I remembered to take the pic: 2 slices Sarah Lee Delightful Honey Wheat bread, 4 oz. smoked ham, slice of pepperjack, 1 tsp. mayo and alot of spinach leaves, going to have either the banana or a plum after.

Dinner will be baked chicken breast with a salad and I am really hoping to get a walk in this evening.

Hope everybody doing good and did I mention my new Points Plus calculator has now gone bad (2nd one folks!) so I said to hell with it and I have returned to the Flex Points system WW had previously. I have everything I need to follow that program and that's what I am doing!! No more jumping back and forth, the broke PP calculator took care of all of that.

Addition: Need to Get Me Back saying "stay with PP program!" May consider it, but it's going to be WW with all my heart no matter if it's PP or Flex.

New Day, Old Plan

I didn't mean to be MIA yesterday but I ended up having to take the boy on the 21/2 hour trip (one way) to doctor to have medication in pump changed. The first of August the dr totally redid how it entered his body and for the last week it caused major problems at night-time (all night long some nights.) Can't have that with school starting this week. So off we went, my eating wasn't fantastic but it wasn't my worst of late.

I have made a decision that I am going to follow the WW Points Plus plan again and get back where I am eating points that are lower in carbs. I did my best when I followed this plan earlier in the year. Got to get back on the eliptical and start on the water.

Todays Eats so Far:
Bagel Thin with little Brumme and Brown, 1 "fried" egg, 1 slice bacon   7 points (I will add rest of eats later today AFTER I eat them)
 Here is a picture from our local newspaper I submitted when I took Jacob back in June to Destin, FL(just a little extra!):
Here is another of us enjoying the last of the day (I really don't have horns, that's just the ocean breeze blowing my locks around my head.)

and if anyone is wondering how the throw away puppy turned out: he's now as big as a pony and living the life of luxuary still at our house, he has his own pool beside ours:

Ya'll have a great day and I will see you again on Monday!!

Wednesday, August 10, 2011


I'm back!!!!! I don't know what happened but I have only now been able to post on Blogger after all this time. I am glad it is fixed and hope it doesn't mess up again.

Quickly to the nitty-gritty: Since I found out how bad my son's surgery is going to be I have been in a dark place and in this place I have not tracked, not exercised, nor really cared. I have been low...way low...searching inside to find what I need to get back where I was going. I have gained 7.4 pounds since my lowest number in May. I feel defeated, angery, hurt, fat, depressed, you guys know the drill.  I am tired, so tired and so mad at myself for this. I don't know which way to go, there is one part of me that wants to give WW a chance again, but there is the other part that says Low Carb! But I do know one thing, I tend to stick to WW better than anything and I guess that tells me something.

I haven't been away from all of you. I have been reading blogs daily and watching how everyone is doing. I want to start over now, going to reach down deep, take a big breath and see which way to go. Back at you soon!

This is how I have been feeling lately:

Vacation Time

Last post for awhile, I am heading to the beach, so I weighed in this morning since I wouldn't be able to post on Monday and I had loss of 1.4 so I will take that and run with it.  I have planned meals and snacks out for myself and will try my best to stick to the plan and not gain 5 to 10 pounds on vacation as I have in the past. Everybody take care and I will see you back on July 5th.

Protein Power!

I started the morning off with plenty of protein by having these DELISH protein pancakes. I have posted about them before but want to bump up for others to try if you didn't see the older post. They are easy to make and very good. I use a Tbsp. of peanut butter with a little agave as syrup for them for extra protein (even Jake eats them!)

Protein Pancakes
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
dash salt
Grind all together in blender and let set for about 5 minutes then I fry in unstick skillet sprayed in butter flavored Pam. Makes 2 small or 1 large pancake.

Then for lunch I had a hot dog on lite wheat bun with a few pork rinds (not the best lunch):
What's everybody eating today? Share any good recipes!

Summer Means S'Mores!

Summer-time is my favorite time to fix S'mores for the kids around my house. This year I wanted to lighten things up so I have been on the hunt for versions of this goodness and found these few at Hungry Girl:
Scoopable Bread S'mores
8 slices light bread, lightly toasted and cut into half-inch cubes
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 sheets (8 crackers) low-fat honey graham crackers, broken into bite-sized pieces
2 1/2 cups light vanilla soymilk
2/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
Optional topping: Cool Whip Free or Fat Free Reddi-wip

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 8" or 9" square baking pan with nonstick spray. Evenly place toasted bread cubes in the pan. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and graham cracker pieces. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine soymilk, egg substitute, brown sugar, and salt. Mix thoroughly. Pour mixture over the contents of the baking pan, making sure all the bread cubes are covered. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Bake in the oven until firm, 45 - 50 minutes.

Set oven to broil. Evenly top the baked dish with marshmallows. Broil until marshmallows are lightly browned, 1 - 2 minutes.

Allow to cool slightly. If you like, finish off each serving with some whipped topping. Enjoy!


Freezy-Good Whoopie S'mores
 PER SERVING (entire recipe, 1 whoopie pie): 172 calories, 2.5g fat, 175mg sodium, 40.5g carbs, 9g fiber, 19g sugars, 4.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*

This dessert couldn't be more appropriately named. After one bite, you'll say "WHOOPIE!" and beg for S'MORE...
1 Vitalicious Deep Chocolate VitaTop (or any other chocolate variety), frozen
3 tbsp. Cool Whip Free, thawed
10 mini marshmallows
1/2 tsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 sheet (1 cracker) low-fat graham crackers, crushed

Carefully slice the VitaTop in half lengthwise (like you would a hamburger bun), so that you are left with 2 thin round Vita "slices." Set aside.

To make the filling, combine Cool Whip, marshmallows, and chocolate chips in a small bowl; set aside. Place crushed graham cracker on a small plate, and set that aside as well.

Evenly spoon filling over the cut side of 1 Vita slice. Top with the other Vita slice, cut side down, to form a sandwich. Very gently press the sides of the sandwich into the crushed graham cracker, so the crumbs cover the exposed filling.

Freeze until solid, about 1 hour. Tada!


Do you have any good s'more recipes that are good for you?

Sum, Sum, Summer Time:
It has not been below 88 degrees in weeks with high humidity so as far as I am concerned summer was here along time ago. BUT, I did take Jake out last night and explain the summer solstice and we watched lightning bugs together. He is such an awesome kid and I am so lucky to have him.

I continue to battle a bad sinus infection. So far I have not gone and got my usual shot of steroids. The last time I did that back in March of this year, and took a steroid pack, I have not been able to lose much weight. Not sure if that was the culprit but I know the same week I took the shot everything came to a screeching halt in the weight department.  Anyhoo, started this morning out with a serving of Multigrain Cheerios and a small banana:

Lunch was a boring turkey on whole wheat with a slice of pepper jack and light mayo, unsweet tea and a fresh peach. Doing much better on water and calorie counting this week, now need to kick back in with the exercise.

Week 2 Recap

Gained +.08 but I am not going to sweat it with the week I had, I am lucky it isn't more.

Food: Counted everything and watched what I ate at the beginning of the week and then Wed. afternoon it all went down-hill for a few days.

Exercise: Not one day

Water: Little bit everyday

No it was not a good week, I was off to a good start and then got blowed away at the Dr.'s office. Next week I will be on vacation, so I am going to try my hardest this week and maintain next week. Things are tough right now emotionally and I DO NOT want to turn to food as I always have in the past and then just give up. I will get this under control.

Remember the little puppy someone threw away at my house? He is doing great and we love him very much. He is a gentle soul and I couldn't have asked for a better tempered dog for Jacob to have:

And so we begin Week 3 of the Summer Slimdown, I hope everyone had a great weekend and is doing good. Peace to All!

Down, Down, Down

and I don't mean my weight. I have spent the last 3 days on a trip to St. Louis where my son was evaluated for what needs to be done for his orthopedic surgery next year. After a full day of xrays and pulling and stretching the Dr. added a few nasty surprises to the already nasty mix. I have been devastated to the point I can't write about it or even think about it or I will go screaming into the street. Thank God Ronald McDonald House doesn't allow alcohol so I only stressed out on half a Mr. Pibb and 4 cookies. I stayed on-plan on travel day Tuesday but Wednesday and travel home yesterday was not stellar. I have spent the night thinking about why I started this weight loss journey and it was to get healthy so I can take care of my son next year when all of this hits. SO....I got myself up this morning and started over. I am not going to be commenting on any blogs for a couple of day, I am not feeling real positive right now don't feel I am the one to try and make people feel better. Next week we leave for vacation and I want to get my mind right to have a good time and not think ahead but enjoy the present. Take care Blog Buddies and I will see you on Monday.

Week 1 Recap

Made it through the first week of Summer Slimdown and here is a recap of my goals:

1. Food: stayed within my points this week, did have a couple of times where I ate something I should not, but tracked it and counted it; Loss for the Week: -1.2  

2. Exercise: to exercise 4 out of 7 days, 30 minutes each day. Didn't quiet make it, I did exercise 3 days this week at 30 minutes. Need to improve here.

3. Water: drink 64 oz. daily. I failed miserably here. I have the hardest time getting down water! Will try much harder.

Here are some shots of things I ate this weekend:

Green tomaters are in and cooked up a few in some olive oil instead of vegetable oil, very good Southern eating! ( I only had ONE.)
Lunch one day was a good sandwich with 2 slices Delightful Honey Wheat Bread and some shaved ham and turkey, little light mayo and lettuce with slice pepper jack, few fat free Pringles:

And this morning I tried something new for breakfast and it was pretty good--Cinnamon Cherrios with 1% milk. I will finish the box but don't think I will buy again, they didn't really have any taste:

Overall I am pleased with everything but need to work harder eliminating the processed foods, getting in my water and exercising more. I will keep up the fight and hope everyone else will too. I am going to be out of pocket until Friday and will not be able to post or check on everyone else. So between now and then everybody take care and DON'T GIVE UP!

How Hot Is It?

Not able to post yesterday, had too much going on.  Everybody doing ok? I started this morning out with 2 slices Delightful Honey Wheat Bread with some Brummel and Brown and 1 fried egg plus a banana for snack later in the morning. This is a very good breakfast and keeps me full until lunch:

And lunch was the best I could do--1 piece fried chicken without skin (took more skin off after pic) and some homemade coleslaw with fresh tomato pieces:
and then I went all buck crazy wild and added 1 small oatmeal raisin cookie (it went so fast no time for picture taking.)

All I have to say people is that it is HOT, I mean HOT, here in West TN. It's been hot for days and days! This is how hot it is and if you are offended in any way I am sorry but I still gotta post how hot it really is:
Ya'll have a good weekend!

Day 3

Read this on yahoo this morning, WW must be doing something right:

The best diet to lose weight on is Weight Watchers, according to weight-loss experts who rated the diets below for U.S. News. The Jenny Craig diet program and the Raw Food Diet come in close behind. Some other diets outperform these for fast weight loss, but long-term weight loss is more important for your health.

#1. Weight Watchers Diet
(3.8 out of 5.0)
This popular points-counting diet helps dieters drop pounds—and keep them off. In experts' ratings, Weight Watchers bested all other ranked diets for both short-term and long-term weight loss. But that doesn't guarantee it will work for everyone. Its average rating of "moderately effective" for long-term weight loss reflects the difficulty dieters have staying on the wagon, even when using the best weight-loss diet available.

I am going to keep at WW (I've been saying that since Feb.) and still trying to have my points in the low-carb range(not doing as well as I should on that.) But I do believe each person has to do what they think is best for their body no matter what program you choose it has to be for LONG TERM. What works for some might not work for others. I was wondering what "moderately effective for long term weight loss" means when people are figuring out what is a good diet and what isn't.

So on to Day 3 for all of us doing Summer Slimdown. I think on Monday's I will do a total week recap of my goals on the blog instead of trying to write them daily. I am keeping up with my goals and food in a notebook so even tho I am not posting everything here I am keeping myself accountable. What's everyone else doing? I would also like to post pics of what I eat but may have to do that with the cell phone since the camera is still not cooperating with my computer.

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

Day 2

In court all day today but took my water with me! Also, it's hot. Way hot. Way, Way, Way, Way Hot. More tomorrow...hope everyone is having a great second day.

Monday, June 6, 2011

Let the Summer Slimdown Begin!

Weighed in this morning for the Summer Slimdown and had a slight gain. Made me sick as I have tracked calories/points everyday and exercised nearly everyday this past week. Same ole same ole, up, down, up, down, but I refuse to give in and give up!

I will try and check on blogs and comment when I can. But I am determined to stick to my goals for the Slimdown. Going to divide them up weekly I think and post how it is going each week with the exception of the last week of June. I more than likely will not be around a computer that week.

So here we go with day One! Good luck everybody!

Here is a recap of my goals set last month:

Food: Changed! Follow WW Points Plus Program where I get 29 PP daily, with plenty of protein, fruits and vegetables, and keeping the carb count on the lower end due to my insulin issues. I plan on logging on My Fitness Pal, when I can, to track my calories to make sure my points are ranging between 1200 to 1400 daily. With my job it is easier for me to count points.

My end goal is to track daily and eat healthy limiting processed food when I can and not beating myself up if I can't for a meal. Weight loss would be a grand thing too (smile.)

Water: Water intake is a work in-progress for me. I tend to retain water and do not lose when I am drinking lots of it. I do not understand this, maybe I just don't drink it enough days to flush it out. goal is to drink 64 oz. of water daily, pure water, not tea, etc. and see what happens.

Exercise: I want to exercise 4 out of 7 days a week, a minimum of 30 minutes, by walking on elliptical, walking outside, resistance bands, etc.

My end goal with exercise is : Just MOVE MORE!!

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Here I Am...

I haven't blogged in awhile, been very busy and still trying to keep it all together. I am reading blogs and keeping up but just no time to write (off 3 days with no Internet didn't help either!) I am sticking to my goals and tracking all food. Exercise needs improvement but I missed a week due to having pulled something in my left knee on a walk I took on a gravel road last Sunday (God love the country!) I did get some swimming in and elliptical work this past weekend. Here is list of food from yesterday, can't get my camera to download pics on puter so still not sure what is up with that (oh, and it hasn't escaped my attention I have went from counting cals back to points, it is just easier for me to keep up with points than calories, I plan on checking calories whenever I can)--

Breakfast: Protein Pancake with little pb and agave syrup (10 points)

Lunch: Half ham and swiss cheese sandwich with lettuce and 1 tsp mayo (4 points)
            few chips and very little french onion dip (3 points)
            fresh cherries (0 pp)

Snack: WW dark raspberry icecream (2 pp)

Dinner:  6 oz hamburger with mushrooms and onions (6 pp)
             bake french fries (3 pp)
             large salad with Ranch dressing (4pp)

Total:  32  pp
Used:    3of my weekly points

GOT to start doing better on my water!!! 

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day and didn't forget those who have served us in the military and serve even  now.
This is my little brother, curently trying to survive and complete Officer's Candidacy School in the Army, keep kicking ass Darius! I Love You and so Proud of You!!
