3/23/08 On Track and going down again!

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Happy Easter to everyone!

This is my track and it's going down again. I had a long talk with myself and I have to do this better than I am right now! My Mom is on the same medication and has gained 16 pounds. I finally realize, that I have to understand that I'm not hungry, just craving carbs. I CAN DO THIS! I have to stick with this and get it done!

Thanks for another great week!

    Lynn, you can do this! I know it's hard when meds make you crave carbs, but we just have to continue to tell ourselves that, it's just a craving, not real hunger! The image you chose is so beautiful and a great metaphor for your next journey.

    The wonderful thing about medicine is all the side effects. Maybe when you feel the craving for carbs you could try doing something like reading or painting your nails something to keep you occupied. Just a thought dear friend.

    Och I looked at my weight loss chart the other week and realised since I've been on the thorazine I've not lost so rapidly but I have lost - just slower. You know you can do this. You know what you need to do, food log, water and exercise. Basic I know but you can do this gal.

    Hugs from snowy scotland.

    Good for you, Lynn! Medications are a bear to overcome when you are trying to lose weight.

    Just remember that, unlike your picture, you cannot just get on the downward path and coast. You KNOW this will be more like rowing upstream without a paddle!

    But you CAN do it! We'll help!

    Lynn... you will overcome! I believe in you and more importantly now, you are expressing that you believe in yourself! Keep on that positive track and find work arounds! You can do it.... Kathy

    I agree - knowing is halfway to controlling. Bless you - carbs are a beast of craving normally, but I am sure you will find a way to control and beat them!

    Lynn, I know it will not be easy, but at least you know what is causing your cravings and this will help you fight it. Get your boxing gloves out and show them who is boss. You can do it!

    You can do it!! Keep listening to the good angel sitting on your left shoulder, not the devil sitting on the right!
    I am routing you on!!
