Back at it again...
Monday, July 20, 2009      1 comments

Well, lots of changes since I was here last...I left my old job for a new, more challenging and ultimately better one---went back to old eating habits out of stress and anxiety. My eyes are as good as they will be until the next surgery (ne... Read more
So...it isn't easy
Tuesday, June 02, 2009      1 comments

Getting back on track after eye surgery hasn't been as easy as I thought. Reading is difficult enough that it makes logging my diet not very fun. It is really true that when I don't log, I slip backwards in dietary choices. Today's vow: I W... Read more

Well, I am back. Had retinal eye surgery on April 6, with some concern that I would lose enough vision that I wouldn't be able to return to work, or to the computer either, for that matter. I'm pleased to report that my vision is doing bett... Read more

Well, the weigh in was disappointing, as my weight hadn't changed since last week. I think I've followed my diet plan well, although I still haven't incorporated exercise---I was feeling down and tempted to go buy a rich piece of cake at the hos... Read more

I am in the process of interviewing for a new job. They like me and now it is time to negotiate salary. I'm very inexperienced at this, and it's hard to talk myself into asking for more, even though I guess it is expected....it feels like I am t... Read more
Good Weekend

I decided to try on a dress on Sunday that I haven't worn for 2 years, because it was too tight. Guess what?! I wore it, but it will be the last time, as it is now too big!! HURRAY! It seems like all I blog about here is how good things are... Read more

Well, even with the worry that my food plan allows for too much food, I'm down another 2 pounds! Hurray! I am amazed that this has worked so well so far. I think that all of these years, I not only overate with stress, but because I had a ... Read more

Here we go again...I hope the trend continues down. This week, I have been great at staying on task and no binges. It seems like a huge amount of food I am eating, and I have been experimenting with some new recipes, which have tasted great. I f... Read more

Still going strong. I love the Greek Yogurt I tried last week---it is so smooth and creamy, and tastes almost like Cheesecake. I can portion it out and it is like the best dessert food you've ever tasted. I am finding out that the better ca... Read more

Last night I was so stressed and angry with myself and the girls that I reverted to old behaviors. Spent the evening lying on the couch, eating. When my daughter didn't want to finish her supper of nacho's, I ate hers as well as mine, resulting ... Read more

Yesterday I was crowing about how great I was at ignoring the cake my daughters made, and then when I got home last night I was stressed from work, in a hurry, hungry, the house was messy, etc, etc, and there on the counter was leftover pizza!!!... Read more
In Control of my intake
Thursday, March 12, 2009      0 comments

My daughters made a cake 3 days ago and it has been sitting on the counter all that time. In the past, I would have made any excuse to go into the kitchen when every one else was gone, so I could carve out a small piece, or maybe a huge piece, ... Read more

I'm so excited to weigh tonight. I have logged my food intake daily and really stayed with the program. Now I have to have faith that it did something for the pounds. If not, I need to concentrate on the fact that I am in this for the long haul,... Read more
