Ya know Raini.. That puddin' is still sitting in the fridge! I've been away from my home since yesterday at 3pm. I've been on plan, went to a wake, dealt with distraught people, saw a body that should have NEVER been open casket, slept without my kidlet or hubby in tow, and STILL stayed on plan. I stayed strong!

Even today my friend that I went to see and go to the funeral with went into the local bake shop to order his sister a baby shower cake. This particular bakery has the infamous "clown cookie". It's a little sugar cookie man that is made into a clown with icing. It's a favorite of mine and my bff. So we went inside. I would've stayed in the car, but he wanted my opinion on the cake. He ending up buying one and I had NO desire for it AT ALL. That is a FEAT in itself honey! I am a sweet-a-holic. My fav food on this whole earth is cake. Birthday cake in particular. No lie. It's my fav food.

When we were in town he showed me the poor guys explorer. He was tboned by a garbage truck. There was literally NO driver's side anything. No roof, door, window, steering wheel, nothing. So I was VERY shocked to see the family had his casket open for viewing. It was VERY apparent that they had to reconstruct his face because he looked like a 55 year old man. He was only 23. It was disturbing to say the least.

After the funeral my bff(Best Friend Forever) Keith and I went back to his house and cleaned all afternoon! He keeps his home immaculate! I always love to help with folding or cleaning the kitchen. Come to think of it. I do it at all my friend's houses! LOL I love it.. Put on some loud dance music, straighten, and declutter.

Eventually his boyfriend came home from work. He(Keith) made us dinner and then I set out on the road home.

Ohh Keith and his mother also gave me 9 flats of sweet potato vines, vinkas, and geraniums(well just two of these)! When my mother comes to visit tomorrow (Sundays is mama visiting day) we are going to get some planting done! I am soo tickled.

I'm getting a head start on planting! I'm heading out now. I know by the time this is all said and done with I won't be able to move with my back! It's worth it to me!


Just had two jimmy dean sausage patties (I prefer Tennessee Pride ANYDAY). The JD's is just too grainy. Bleck! It won't keep me from eating it though! LOL

I'm back for an update! I am still on plan chugging along! I have no cravings, no cheats! I do need to eat more and drink more.. I am choking it down the best I can! =D I've subscribed the a bunch of the induction friendly threads.. I will get some ideas for menus there. =D It's our spring break this week! So I get to sleep in! WOOT! My fil took my son to Discovery Place and I have the house to myself! =D I'm going to clip coupons, look through circulars, sweep, mop, then it's upstairs to do laundry and straighten up stairs.

Ohh PS if I hear one more time about how it's 4 20 I am going to scream. It just pisses me off.

Thank you for inspiring ME!!! I keep messing up, but I know if I can make it through one totally cheat-free day, I can make it through two. And then I'll be back on track!

And it's gonna be a housework day for me, too. I've been off-island all day, every day, since last Friday (except Sunday, and we were out of the house most of the day.) So time to catch up!

I'm human.. I slipped yesterday (LATE in the evening). My hubby gave me some distressing news about his job and I had a cupcake to settle my nerves. But like I tell everyone else. I am not defined by or ashamed that I make mistakes. I am human. I know I am an emotional eater. I always have been. This might sound sick to say, but I am VERY proud of myself for sticking to ONE cupcake. I binge when I am in distress. Today was like nothing ever happened. The same ole comforting food I've had for the past month. I was talking to my bestie Keith on the phone today. I told him I would like to eat how thin people do, not like how thin people splurge. My eating before was one giant splurge after the other. I'm glad I dealt with my stress the best way I could and it didn't get any uglier than it did. The whole day before AND after that moment was great. One day I might look back on that moment and refer to it as my "planned cheat".

I'm not ashamed and I'm not embarassed. I'm just me.

Back up in the saddle, Miss Rebecca!

I happen to know what it means to be proud of a cheat that just includes "one" of something, because years ago I would have eaten a whole bunch, too, if under stress. I'm thinking it's all those stressful moments that added up to one very overweight me!

You're smart enough to know that you need to get back on track, and you will! I'm proud of you!

It's been a while since I've been in here.. I'm down to my lowest weight ever on this board.. It wasn't because I was low carbing. I sure do miss it though and I'm gonna get back up on that horse. I'm excited to get this going again!

Thank you Christine! I decided earlier that i was doing it! I haven't prepped for myself so it looks like eggs for dinner for me tonight! LOL In my opinion waiting till tomorrow could go until the ends of the earth! That's why I'm starting now!

It's been a while AGAIN! I've been die hard calorie counting since December 31st, 2012. I'm down from 250 to 239 BUT I've had a plateau since then. So I've decided to LC the rest of my way! So I'm on this journey again! =D

My dear friend Meghan has been my gym/diet buddy for the past couple weeks! I love it. I just didn't have anyone in my life to support me like that and I could relate. We have about the same amount to lose, but we are two different body types. She's a 5'9" buxom glamazon and I.. Well I'm shaped like Mrs. Peanut with tooth pick legs. I embrace my good qualities JUST as I loathe the bad ones. =D I think I'm a typical insulin resistant body type.. All my body fat is in my gut.. I have thin(ish) legs and arms so it literally looks like I'm a cocktail olive on toothpicks! We decided literally yesterday after our workout that we would start low carbing! We went straight to my house and trashed any an all foods that would trigger us! We went to the store and bought some staples until I could plan meals (eggs, cheese, butter, heavy cream, frozen veggies). Ohh! Where I'm going with this was.. I weighed yesterday in at 242 and this morning I'm already down a lb! I know in my brain that it's a normal fluctuation of my body... But I take it as a positive, a reinforcement that I am doing the right thing! I just had a string cheese for part of my breakfast! I think I might make some homemade ranch and have a boiled eggs on a salad. Not sure yet! =D Or maybe just some bacon since I have to go work out. =)

I had a great day! Last night I was forced to go to bed at 11pm last night. I had a sugar withdrawl migraine! Boy was I sick! My friend and I got Keto strips and hers was pretty dark. Mine was a little lighter (I think because I got Buffalo bites at bojangles) I accidentally poisoned myself. At least I know from now on to avoid that food. I'm ok with that. My other friend susan gave me a gagillion packets of Crystal light so I am super jazzed about drinking those. I am feeling satiated and full! I am on such a positive kick!

Day four of induction! I'm getting over Induction flu! WOOT!! I kind of OD'ed on crystal light last night! =-D I made my tummy sick!My friend gifted me a GIANT ziplock of crystal lights to go. I was excited and I was trying all different flavors. I would put one to-go pack in my 23 ounce water bottle. I think I had three! I won't do that again! I've decided to still consume the CL to-go packs, but limit myself to a couple a day. I DID see a weight change/loss on the scales this morning.

I've found that I'm just not that hungry today! I had to choke down a cheese stick! I have noticed the only thing I get overwhelmed about is menu planning. I'm a plan on the fly kind of girl and meal planning stresses me out! I don't know what my dysfunction is about this topic, but it frightens me! I know in my heart that planning meals will be an integral piece of my success. It's like boarding a boat and setting sail with no plan or destination. I'm not doubting myself or this diet.. I just fear for the unknown.

This is a sad yet exciting feat for me! I'm almost back to my original HIGHTEST starting weight! Embarrassing, but true! In 2003 when I first started my LC journey I was a new mom who was suffering from terrible back problems. I was unhappy and an all around miserable person. I was in NO place to take control of myself or my weight. I'm in a completely different place in my life. I'm ok with reaching this weight again, because I'm a different person now.. Wiser I hope. =D

I'm 238 today! Wahoo! I feel SOO good! People are already commenting that my body is changing! I am so excited! My food is delicious! I feel happy about my choices! Sorry I'm so giddy! I'm just tickled with myself!







Sorry they are so huge! I'll fix it (somehow)
