Thanks Jenna.

Not sure how much I weigh because my MIL has no scale (probably a good thing). I still feel lousy from my week long carb binge but I did well yesterday. I ate LC and resisted some temptation I knew that would follow (signs of withdrawal I guess). However, I know consumed too many calories for dinner. I am going to try to eat less today but keep the fat high, mainly to keep the cravings down.
Not sure when I am going to get power yet-it doesn't look good though. It's been very difficult to be displaced but I try to keep it in perspective. I am also going to try and not dwell on how I messed up big time during a crisis/high stress situation. Lesson is learned and now I have to think only how I would handle that differently.
Today, I want to get things done-if places are opened. Flu shots for the twins, reservations for my dd's b-day party in December and reservations for my DH husbands bday. I also want to find time to work on graduate school work and stop by my house and grab some more items and clean a little.
There truly is no place like home....

This is about the 9th I have no power in my home and staying w. family.
The kids are getting restless and we all miss home. We are blessed in comparison to so many others.
The past 2 days I have eaten well and I have noticed that I am slowly getting energy back. My plan is to sway dinners around here so that it fits my woe.
Tonight-hamburgers and hot dogs!

On top of all this, it looks like my area is now expecting snow!
This all has been very trying BUT I am hoping things will start to trun around real soon.

Here's hoping for the very rapid, positive turnaround!!! You have been through so much. But it's always good to count blessings to for WHAT we have, like you said.

Take care, and I'll check in soon!

Hugs, Jenna

Still no power.
But tomorrow I will be back at work and trying to get into some sort of routine similar to the one I had living w. my mil.
So, instead of hoping there will be a change this weekend- I am going to just put into my head that I will be here for a LONG time and that this is my new "home" for a while.
The thoughts that I would only be displaced for a short time has left me to NOT work on work and graduate school related stuff. So today and tonight, i am going to get something done for each.
I guess patience is key...
Still have not checked the scale-thankfully this one here is not working. I want to give myself a week of eating right before I do check the scale anyway.
It truly is amazing how lousy I felt eating sugary and carby stuff vs. eating lc.
It DOES make a difference.
Thanks for checking in Jenna-how are you doing w. your eating?

Luca,

Sorry to hear that things are still so challenging for you. Must be very exhausting and frustrating. I hope you can get some things accomplished this weekend so that it feels that you have some sense of control...I understand the feeling.

My eating has been, MEH. Not so good the past few days. I do feel lethargic and generally BLAH when I eat carbs like pasta or potatoes like I have been doing for the past 2 days. I don't know why I do it---it doesn't even give me that much satisfaction in the first place. I need to get back on track. Fortunately, I am still, for some reason, able to maintain on the scale. I am thankful for that. Thanks for asking!

Take good care and I'll check back with you soon!

Hugs, Jenna

Finally home today! Lights are on!
I weighed in this morning at 161.6.
This means I gained about 3 pounds since the hurricane. I am definitely ok w.that as i thought I gained like 5 or 7-so I will take it.
I am so tired today but I am working on getting the house organized again and our family routine re-established.
Good thing is laundry is done but I need to go food shopping and put away everything we brought over to MIL.
I also have a ton of Halloween candy which I am bringing ALL to school.
So happy to be back home

Well, I just saw pics from 2 years ago that were on my MIL's camera.
I could NOT believe how I looked!?
I cannot ever look like that again. In the one picture I was wearing this awful dress that I remember having to buy because it was the only one that would fit me...of course it was from the Large dept. of the store.
Some days I feel myself slipping and making some bad choices BUT I know after looking at those pics...it just can't happen

Today I weighed in at 160.6.

I think this is just water weight coming off. But whatever it is I am happy w.the scale going down.
I feel like life is slowly getting back to normal. Laundry piling up, homework, etc. I can't wait to go food shopping this weekend and actually have ALL the things I usually have in the fridge. I really, really want to incorporate exercise into my life. I want to use the treadmill at night BUT I am just sooo tired. Ugh...However, logically, a half an hour is such a short amount of time of my day that there really should NOT be any excuses. I'll see....

I am slowly getting back to eating the way I should be. But I am finding I am so hungry lately....I am trying to just eat more fat.
Tomorrow I am going on my first food shopping trip since the hurricane and I cant wait.

Hi Luca,

Glad to see that you are getting things back on track!

Have fun shopping tomorrow. You'll have to let me know if you have any creative ideas for LC meals. I am always looking for new inspiration!

Take care---

Hugs, Jenna

Today I weighed in at 159.8.
I ate come pretty bad things last night w. my hubby-we used to ALWAYS snack on bad food late at night while watching TV. It actually was a super bad habit that I picked while we were dating and I know it contributed to my weight gain over the years. Since this woe I rarely do that w. him but last night was one of those nights where I could not resist--
ugh-this friday my dh and i will be going with friends for an early b-day celebration for my husband. i really wanted to be in low 150's at this point and rock a really nice outfit-but that did not happen. still i did buy a cute dress that i would have never been able to wear last year at this time so i guess that is something to proud of......
thanksgiving is going to be challenging as well....

So today I weighed in at 160.8.
It's been a rough few weeks. I looked back in my journal and I have been bouncing around the same few pounds since September. There really is no excuse for it-it's all been me.
I know this seems like a funny time to be re-committing myself (day before a big ol' feast like Thanksgiving) but I AM going to do this and get control again.
I did not come this far to blow it & end up where I was 2 years ago.
Looking good, new clothes, & all the energy is just too good to let go of...
Tomorrow, I will be at my MIL's. I plan on eating lots of turkey and decent side dishes, salad, and any veggies -no potatoes! no desserts!
I also plan on eating well in the morning before I go to Thanksgiving, in hopes that I will stay full and not be tempted .

Hi Luca,

How did your Thanksgiving go? I didn't do TOOOO bad with the eating, but I also skipped this scale this morning, just to give myself a break.

I understand the bouncing up and down on those same darn pounds. It is so frustrating, but I know that I only have myself to blame. I hope to get back on track soon.

I hope you have a great holiday weekend! What are you up to?

Take care and talk to you soon,

Hugs, Jenna

Hi Jenna.
Thanksgiving started out ok but then went really bad..
I ate a low carb breakfast and lunch thinking that would of helped me feel full for dinner and eat accordingly. Turned out I caved...I ate a few side, not too much but then blew it during dessert time. MY SIL made homemade apple and pumpkin pie and like an addict, I ate it.
I am pretty sure I did the same thing last year so next year I am NOT going to eat a breakfast or lunch and eat a few things I like during dinner as a treat. I think I would of did a lot better if I approached the day like that-I would of ate many fewer calories. So I blew it big time. The scale read 165 today! I know some of that is water weight BUT I am in serious need of a kick in the butt! I am now also fighting a cold which I believe that carb overload has contribute to.
I am not going to give up though.
How are you doing Jenna?

I am sick again, so I am taking the day off tomorrow. I have so much to do around the house with so many Dec. b-days. So off to school the kids will go and I will be getting things done....

I joined a "challenge board" on this site. I think it is helping (so far) to keep me accountable and to find my groove again. So hopefully, the trend will continue.

Today I weighed in at 158.6. This is usually where I get stuck on the scale for different reasons.
I am still sick but got some stuff done today. Tomorrow starts a new month. The first day of for the last month of 2012 and I want to make huge progress. I went to the mall with my mom today and saw the cutest dress I want to wear to my work's x-mas party. I don't like getting attention BUT I do like feeling good about myself. I just might have to go get it this week!

I have my daughter's b-day party today at home and I am cooking and busy.
I am hoping to make some good choices. I know I will want wine.. I made some dips that maybe I can have w. some peppers w? I'll see. But I plan on staying away from sweets, chips and macaroni.
There will salad and wings I can munch on...so I'll so my best.

12.10

So I did my best at the party-I ate one cookie and that would of been fine BUT I felt like I did something so bad and then just kept eating. I ate LC stuff BUT I was full...

This is something I want to overcome for sure. I added in extra calories plus more than 1 glass of wine that led to bad eating on Sunday as well. Feeling disappointed in myself made me feel anxious. Anxiety and stress makes me overeat.
Therefore this morning I weighed in at 159.
I was able to get to 156.6 this past week so I am so annoyed that I got derailed. The challenge board that I joined gives me I think 23 more days before the New Year to lose some more weight. I would love to be 153 or 154 by New Year's. I am hoping for some progress by spring of 2013- like maybe even the 130's like 135! God, I am not sure when the last time I ever weighed that number! A girl can dream right!?

I have to come to the realization that I DO not need as much food as I did before. I need to stay the course.
Tonight is my work's holiday party and I am hoping to stay on track-I may have a glass of wine...not sure.

I am a little confuse by it but I will take it.
Work and school and home has been busier than ever. The hustle and bustle of the holidays are here and I am feeling the pressure to get it all done, all while enjoying the time with my children. I am done with looking at new years as a time for resolutions. I think of it more like everyday should be accounted for as a new start or a new day to try your best to make healthy decisions. That is the way I want to look at it....
Although, I DO want to look amazing this summer and wear a nice bathing suit and get a special dress for a wedding this July.

Oh mY! I totally derailed this past few days. The dress I wore yesterday did not fit as well as it did about a week ago when I was 5 pounds lighter. So, I am mad at myself today and I ate on plan today BUT my cravings and emotional state wants me to eat everything in sight!
Ugh....have to get back on track before this gets really OUT of control.
