I'd love to be able to practice more self control, chosing the big reward that is delayed over small gratifications in the hear and now.

That is a positive thought! !!!
For me it is so fun to try to look nice and feel good about how I look. I ordered some new tops with pretty prints and sparkles. Too much of my wardrobe is gray tones or backgrounds. I am donating some tops that bring me down !!

Sorry to hear of it. Seems like a very tough situation.
How wonderful that your brother and wife are taking meals to your dad.
If they move away, wat will happen?

unfortunately, we are out of options. My brother & his wife take dad food. We can't give him money for groceries because he'll just give it to Brad. And we can't really buy him groceries because Brad & his druggie friends will just eat whatever we buy. So it's one meal at a time, just enough to make sure our dad gets something healthy to eat at least once or twice a day.

My brother & his wife are doing their best to move away because Brad is so well known in the area, and they have children with the same last name in school. Their son has already been asked if he's related to Brad when teachers see his last name.

Brad is 47 years old...way past the age to be doing the things he does.

I mentioned stable moods because sugar wrecks those!

Sorry to hear of those issues you have... I remember you wrote a blog about them some time ago. I can imagine that this must be a very bitter experience. My heart goes out to you.
Is there nothing that can be done in terms of hiding / locking away your father's financial stuff so the youngest son can 't get to them? I'm sure you've considered that already....

That's a tough one, Christina.

For me, routines are VERY important to stabilize my moods. It seems the least little thing that throws me off my routine can put me down in the dumps for weeks.
That happened week before last - I didn't wake up in time to get to my 6am class. BUT I still made sure to get in my steps and my flights of stairs every day. My 'down days' didn't last as long as they have in the past. I didn't do the best with eating, but because I got in my exercise I still managed to lose a pound! That was motivation to get back to eating as I should and kick it up a bit on my exercise.

emoticon

BTW, Christina. I'm having some major family issues too. My dad has 4 kids (sis & I from his first marriage; my 2 brothers from his 2nd). My youngest brother is an addict. He has stolen so much from my dad, and from his mom before she died this year. My dad just keeps letting him back in the house.
So the 3 of us filed an Adult Protective Services report. The case worker has been out a few times. She said she knows it's a bad situation, but because my dad is not suffering from obvious dementia, there is nothing that can be done legally. As long as my dad allows Brad to take advantage of him, it's out of their hands. It's really sad. My dad treats 3 of us with great suspicion, and we've never taken anything from him! Not even asked for as much as a single $ since we graduated. Meanwhile, Brad steals money from dad's wallet, takes his credit cards and bank card, takes anything in the dad's house that he can pawn for money.
It breaks my heart to see my father allow this to happen. But you cannot help people who refuse to help themselves.

Sugar is the enemy and I am letting go of the idea of having it regularly. I can't afford the consequences: terrible moods, flu symptoms, weight gain, promoting diseases like cancer.

Yikes I read today that diabetes 2 can shorten one's life by 10 years... and that if you have 2 close relatives (parents / siblings) who have it, your chance to get it is 25-70%!I want to be healthy and I want that desire to help me say no to temptations in the food department!

One of my reasons to work on weight loss is to be more fit and to avoid diabetes.

(I keep repeating my reasons here, please do the same, it's fine to repeat yourself, do it daily if you feel like it!).

I hear you. But please don't be hard on yourself. Weight loss is hard and maintenance is even harder, I hear. It's not like you're the only one who regained weight! I am right with you, for one! :)

my motivation today is that I want more peace with myself and my eating.

I get so mad at myself because I lost the weight before...and I let myself gain it back. I remember how hard it was to get the lbs off...so WHY did I let myself gain most of it back again?

When I get rid of it this time...it's gotta be FOR GOOD.

I just joined the daily Spark Challenge for Diabetes yesterday - I have not been diagnosed but I am hoping to learn more about the disease and do what I can to prevent it. Although there are usually no symptoms, I wouldn't be surprised if I am pre-diabetic based on my life style and risk factors.

type 2 diabetes runs in my family on both sides. I did not realize that genetics is part of type 2 diabetes. I need to do everything I can to better my chances of avoiding it.

I was listening to some music this morning...this pretty much sums it up for me:

I am SO VERY TIRED of being overweight! I want to feel better and get rid of some aches and pains.

I am doing well with exercise (currently on a 10,000+ steps/day streak that started on Apr 30!)

My challenge is food.
