I've been craving salt and sugar like crazy!  I think my hormones are way out of whack.  I wonder what I could do to get off this rollercoaster cravings ride?!

Celebration at the Doctor's Office

I had my yearly check-up with one of my doctors today.  Guess what?  I weighed twenty pounds less than 14 months ago!  Woo hoo!

I'm very excited to have stuck with the food journaling, started back to walking a couple of times a week, and lowering my sugar intake.

Getting healthier!

Started my food journal again three weeks ago.  Down 12 pounds!

Looking for Help

This weekend I just looked at my husband and said, "I need your help.  I'm so tired of being fat.  I just want to be my normal again."  Bless his heart, he tried to be sweet about, but he's a realist, which is why I love him. 

"You know what you need to do."  Yes, he's right.  I do know what I need to do.  I just need a jump start.  So I'm trying this three day military diet - high protein, low carbs - to see if I can get my body losing again.

Losing for Life

I've been on blood pressure medicine for about six weeks now.  Of course, the doctor says most of my troubles would probably go away if I just lost weight.  Why is it so hard to get back to a normal weight?  The combination of stress and over-eatting has left me at some of my highest numbers on the scale.  At least, I'm still lower than my highest weight ever, which was at 8 months pregnant!

I really want to lose 100 pounds for life!!!

I am what I eat

So I should be cookies, cake, ice cream, and candy bars.

Walk a Mile

My neighbor and I have tried to walk in the mornings -- 5:15 a.m. comes really early! But I'm developing shin splints which have left me sore and achy all day at work. I've stretched and stretched some more but haven't found any relief yet. I haven't tried ice packs yet. Maybe it's time for new shoes.
