I am not feeling very good this morning. I had to go to the Eye Dr for a very swollen and irritated eye. I found out I have a ulcer on the cornea of my eye. I have to take three different meds. It sucks.

Reva,

I am so sorry to hear!

Hang in there - do you have dry eyes? I have dry eyes when I go very low carb, and I have heard of this from other people. Some people need some carbs to make mucus. I do target 50 carbs most days, some days I only get 30, but my eyes are fine now. I am miserable when they are dry due to contacts. I feel really good using some blackstrap molasses because it is loaded with iron and minerals - calcium maganesium potassium, etc.

Hiya, Reva!!

My kiddos start back to school on the 17th and 18th as well. Can. not. wait!! Can you hang in there another day or two? Have the girls gone back to their grandparents yet? Seems like they should have gone this weekend --at least in order to get settled in before starting at their respective schools. Hope it worked out that way for you. I pray there is peace and breathing room in your home now (as well as in your budget )

How's your eye doing? Hope the meds help and you won't have to face any surgery.

How's your stepson/nephew(?) sorry I don't remember) the one who joined the military? Hope he survived boot camp and enjoys it and the income!!

I am hoping to start exercising when mine go back. Think I may try aquaerobics/water walking/etc through our community center.

Praying you have enough in you to not explode before Wed!!

I haven't stepped on the scale in a few days so I have no idea where I am at. All I can say is that I haven't ate the best. Money has been very tight and not the best choices in the house. I am making a grocery shopping list for tomorrow. The kiddos go back to school and I can't wait. I am joining back at the gym and getting this weight off of my fat butt. I feel horrible not eating right and the great thing is that the food tastes horrible. I didn't miss eating all the nasty crap.

I have picked up a new hobby to help us save money. I am starting to do the whole extreme couponing thing. I bought my binder and my baseball card inserts. I just started it this week so I am hopping to come across some awesome deals. We need to save as much money as we possibly can and to get out of this rut we have gotten in over the summer. With seven of us we can always use the extra stuff I will be saving on. I have been watching a lot of you tube videos and I am overly excited.

nikki the kiddos head back to school tomorrow so it should be very soon.

Laura I know huh?!? Its sad to be forgotten so quickly.

kcmama my eye is back to normal and I am so thankful. I hate my glasses and don't wear them often except at night. I love my contacts and I couldn't wear them with the eye thingy going on. My step son doesn't leave for boot camp until January '12. It sucks but it is what it is. We are trying to make the best of the situation. He hasn't been horrible over the summer so I am praying we make it without any fall outs until he leaves.

Amber how are you doing hun!? I feel bad for not making it to your journal. I just feel over whelmed any more when I get on line anymore. I feel as though I am spending too much time on here and not with the kiddos before they go back to school.

Tomorrow is the big day. I am back at it full force. I went and did a huge grocery order today. I am joining the gym again tomorrow. It is time to stop farting around and get this dang weight off of me.

I got on the scale this morning and it wasn't pretty. I was at 274. No one to blame here but myself. I know what to do and how to get it off.

Kids are back in school so no more excuses.

martini I have to get right back to it. If I slack any longer I am afraid I would be back over 300 in no time. I have came to the conclusion that I need my LCF family and staying away isn't helping any. I know that no matter how hectic life can be I need you all.

Amber posting here daily is what has helped me stay strong for all those months. I am not giving up now. I am back at it in full force today. Its going to be tough but I know I can see a new low in the next month or two.

Laura you heard the Kaos in the background when we talked on the phone. That was actually a mild day. It was a summer nightmare I don't want to relive next summer. I miss you guys!!!!

nikki back at ya sister!

8/22 ~ 274
8/23 ~ 272

I was suppose to go to a coupon class tonight and I was looking so forward to it but they had to cancel it due to a family emergency. I have been really getting into using coupons. It is crazy how money I have been saving. I should have been doing it all summer long.

I am joining back to the gym today and can't wait. They are having a special for $45 for 2 months and $85 for 2 months membership and 2 months unlimited tanning. I am treating myself. ENOUGH SAID!!!!

I probably should tan but I sure do miss it.

I don't have a contract fee or not locked into anything and I love that. I just have to pay cash each month. The beds at Macs Gym is super hot at all times and I guess thats why I got spoiled to it so quick.

I scale is creeping down which puts a big smile on my face. I didn't make it to the gym Yesterday because time simply got away from me but I do plan on getting there first thing this morning. That way I can get it out of the way with nothing standing in the way. Since my step son doesn't have a job and isn't leaving until January I am going to take advantage of it and try and make gym time in the mornings for a while.
