Cle's a Fataholic on a Mission!

Hey Peeps!!!

I'm back after a long, long break....I'm hoping that journaling will get me back on track! Since last July I've gained about 60lbs! Ohhh Emmm GEEEE!!!! So I'm back to take this weight off and more. I'm not as addicted to the scale anymore, definitely not letting it control my life. I'm in a very happy place, and with everything I celebrate with food. Today is day 1 back on low carb! I'm not a low carb fan, but I know it works wonders and I drop the weight quickly. I'm not disciplined on weight watchers or anything for that matter. I know consistency is key, and motivation keeps evading me. I've had encouragement from my girls, but I can't seem to get it together...So here I am, planning to use this journal for accountability and needing/wanting to see results! My girls are coming to visit me in month and a half! I need to get up on it!!!! I have this beautiful weather so there's no excuse for me to get moving even though I know I lose without exercise. I want to tone as I go, and not be loose....so here we go!

Menu for today so far:

B: Bran cereal & Boiled eggs
L: Wings
D: Not sure yet

Sooooooooooooooooooo I go to my allergist and apparently I'm eating something I'm allergic to almost daily and because I'm on these meds they can't tell what it is. Soooooo I have to cut all my meds off so it can be out of my system when I get tested next week and the week after. So not only can I not take my meds, I can't even take advil if I get a headache I have to suffer through it. TOM is scheduled to appear and I can't take anything for it.....and I have to follow an eating plan which is basically fruits and veggies and 1-2 servings of protein a day. I'll prob still lose but I'm going to be one irritated lady. Poor people who have to be around me....and to top it off....I was going to adopt a dog and he told me no!!!! I forgot how therapeutic journaling could be....rant over!

Good Morning!!!

I ate on plan yesterday and it was surprisingly easy and STRESS FREE! I don't want to stress about everything I put in my mouth but obviously I need to be aware. It's all about making good choices ALL DAY long!!! Today is going to be a busy day...but a good one...Although I'm fat, I'm happy...in such a good place...I have no complaints about life....(the lotto would be nice) but I'm surrounded by great friends and family who are genuine and that's more than enough for me!!!!


B: Oatmeal with fruit
L:Not sure yet, it will be a working lunch


Tennis tonight.....TOM is here so I'm just happy I have energy and I can still workout...The steroids are working their way out of my system so I can LOSE and not just maintain!

Hope EVERYONE has an awesome day!

I think all our lives would be great if we could just stop stressing about the foods that we put in our mouths. I am learning NOT to stress(I hear that stress can show itself in cortisol, which is not good for our bellies) about so much. I think we need to use the tools we are given, scale, exercise, diet but not get crazy about it all. You are happy about yourself today and that is all that matters at the moment in your life. Sounds like you are off to a good start with lots of support.

Have a wonderful day.

This is the day that the Lord has made, I WILL rejoice and be glad in it!

Thanks for the encouraging words, yes it's great to feel stress free but I don't want to be loose with my eating.
