Watch me fly to my goal!

Why does it seem that when I get sick I bloat all over the place? I was hoping that five days of hacking my guts out would make it like crunches or something.
I'm discouraged, but got a gazelle so I can work out at home when the gym is too far away.
Another month to succeed in!

Ok, my weight isn't as bad as it looks, because I lost 2 pounds and gained back one.
I have been without a car for 2 weeks, and got it back today. HOORAY!
Good news, I made the President's list in college- 4.0! Proves to me I still have a brain that works.
I am very disappointed that I didn't do better with my weight loss, but gives me something to shoot for next month.
I think I'd better warn ya'll in advance.

All I wanted to do today, besides sleep, was pass my Anatomy and Physiology II test. I did ok. When I came home from school, I wanted to make some cookie dough and eat it. I didn't do it! I am so proud of myself.
This past week has not been very good. I am looking forward to the 5th so we can put some positive numbers up.

Another week, another lesson

OK, what lesson do I learn from a broken vehicle, no energy, and dark chocolate? Your guess is as good as mine! I borrow a car from Patti (thank you so much, sis!), I rest more and eat only the amount of chocolate the package says is one serving. I also put it in the drawer in my back bedroom so it isn't so available to me. That makes it a bigger pain to get to, and sometimes it works!
I've stopped doing the points. I quit last time, too, because with my schedule it just didn't work, nor does it work now... I am eating smaller portions of whatever it is I'm eating, and that helps me. I wish there wasn't so much stress in my life. I guess that just gives me the opportunity to learn more and more and more patience. Maybe I'm just a slow learner.....

Ok, a little success spurs me on

I lost 2 lbs this week. I didn't think I had lost any, but now I am stoked. I got a nasty cold last night, but with essential oils and herbs, it is almost gone! I love God's pharmacy, and a little reflexology goes a long way, too!
Sunday night was better than Saturday, and today is good, too! I am cooking chicken enchiladas for dinner, and then will have my vitamins before I go to bed tonight. I must drink more water today, too.
Tomorrow, the gym at 6:00, so it's early to bed tonight.

I don't know how I did today because I haven't looked at a scale. It's been a very depressing, emotional night. When my husband hasn't had his pain pills, or they wear off, he is a different person and it's hurtful and scary to me.

Today is the day I do all my measuring, get angry at myself for being such a big slug, berate myself, and move on to what's really important. I will need more energy to have all those emotions in one 24 hour period, but I'm a woman, I can handle it! Self-recrimination will be these next 24 hours, and then it's got to be over!
To help lose weight, sniff your meal deeply 3 times before even taking a bite of it. Your appetite will diminish!
Now, let's all try it and see if it works.
