Well, I am officially back on my "fat" medicine now. Cozar. *Sigh*
My thyroid function was worse than borderline this time so I'm also back on the levothyroxine again. *sigh* *sigh* On the bright side she said
that it would probably help me to lose some weight....that and eating healthy in moderation and exercising for at least 30 min 5 days per week....why do they always say that.....because it's so true! I know this....I just don't do it for some unexplainable reason!!!

Didn't do too good in the eating department this weekend...but I guess I could have done worse too. I'm going to try to really cut my calories back some this week to see if the thyroid medicine might make a difference! Cross your fingers!

Started a new Memorial Day challenge with some of my LCF's today. Maybe a fresh-start is just what I need. The weather has been beautiful here in south Alabama so maybe being outside and moving more will make a difference!

I have been sliding down that slippery slope of no return!! I don't know why I do this!! I just went on a free for all bing these last few days just eating whatever looked good to me....knowing that it is not an option for me! I weighed 5 pounds up from Friday this morning and my hands and feet felt all tight and puffy and swollen, from all of the salt I'm hoping. Anyway...when I say that number on the scale this morning I got dressed and walked for 20 minutes, which isn't much but it's all I can do so that my legs won't be sore tomorrow....yes, I'm that out of condition!!

I ate a bowl of oatmeal and for lunch I ate a small portion of the regular stuff I cooked for my family....then got up and put my plate in the dishwasher instead of doing the refill I've been doing for the past few days! At least that's a start back in the right direction. I hate it when I feel so weak and out of control!!!

Getting back under control finally I think! Now I have 20 pounds to lose to be back to where I was not too long ago! I hate losing these same pounds over and over again....I don't guess I hate it enough not to regain it over and over again though do I now?


that's what I'll do when I weigh in for my challenge tomorrow I'll bet!!

One and a half days of very low carb behind me! My boys are back on the progam with me so it should be easier to stay on track but a lot more
"work" involved with keeping us all fed!

**sigh*** ......derailed again! I don't know what is wrong with me! Why I can't just stop eating more than I need! Pretty mad at myself this morning. Already messed up with a fast food breakfast! Why couldn't I just have coffee....than a better early lunch, but no! Gravy Biscuit from Hardees'!

....carrying on from here though. Got to. Maybe the new 4th of July challenge will help!

I seriously hope nobody reads this but me! I'll be everybody would think I'm crazy as many times lately that I've "restarted"!

But today is another day and another restart! I'm trying the JUDDD lifestyle and hope it will work for me.

....onward and upward!!!(downward in this case!)

I just did one and half miles of Leslie Sansone's Walk Away Your Waistline (with the Walk Belt)!!!! I am so proud of myself for a change instead of feeling guilty about what a failure I was today!

On my second "down day" doing JUDDD and feeling pretty good about it!
Down to 185 this morning, even after an up day. Truth be known, that
up day yesterday was actually a down day when compared to what all I've been eating these past few weeks!!

Been kind of out of control in the house on this rainy day. My down day turned into an up day and then some today. Tomorrow is another day.

WOE-hopping again.... I can't do these down days on JUDDD...or rather I don't want to do them. I am officially counting calories now. I've been around 1200 and trying to only eat between 10 am and 6 pm and
doing WATP most nights. I'm happy here for awhile. Back down to 185 again at least. I am expecting s l o w so maybe I won't be too disappointed!

OUT OF CONTROL with my eating. I was sitting here thinking "tomorrow will be better, I'll start tomorrow, etc."......then I decided that I would start right now. I got up and did 1.5 miles of my new Walking Away the Pounds dvd. I feel so much better and a lot less hopeless about things!

"They" say the more you exercise the more you want to exercise! I'm going to see. (I will probably look back at this post in a couple of weeks and laugh!)

.....maybe not! This could be the turning point! It's got to start somewhere so why not tonight!

Leisha so glad you did the walking tapes, exercise does help with releasing some wonderful endorphins into our brains and helps us with depressed thoughts. I hope this is the turnning point for you to get healthy but I have been where you are a time or 2 and just wanted to encourage you in this journey to becoming healthy. Gotta go, getting ready to go to Zumba class, endorphins here I come.

Hi Leisha j

I hope you don't mind if I take this and put it on my journal. It's an eye opener for when you ONLY lose 1 pound

Maggie....How sweet you are! Thank you for those encouraging words! I honestly forgot about the endorphins making you feel better and less depressed. I knew something happened though! I plan to do it again tonight but by the time I get through "cutting the okra" in the garden with it being 100+ degrees today I might not make it! I'm sure going to try though!

Valentine.....(I didn't get your name before I started posting, sorry) ....I don't mind at all if you borrow! I'm glad you brought it up to the "top" so I could see it again! A pound doesn't seem like a lot until you look at it like that! I still say ewwwww!!!

Happy to hear this Leisha! I think it is always good for us when someone in the family gets what we are doing. Good just on keeping the carbs low.

Have a Blessed day!

Thanks Melanie and Maggie! You are both always so sweet to "drop in" here and encourage me! I'm going for my mammogram and PAP
smear and check up in just a minute. I dread it so but it is necessary. What I really dread is seeing my doctor after gaining 20 pounds since last year! She was so proud of me last time. I had
lost weight, was walking everyday and taking my supplements and was
off of my blood pressure medicine. NOT TODAY! But, hopefully soon again!

Things aren't going too good in the self-control/will power department for me lately. I've lost my mind and can't find it! All of my clothes are getting too tight for comfort and I ache all over from carrying these extra 20 pounds I've put back on while I still had 20 more pounds to lose still!

Been getting food ready for next week this afternoon so maybe everything will get back on track for me.....maybe!!!!

Have you ever considered never having those bad foods again? I'm only saying this because I feel that for me, I am one of those people who can't have "just a taste" because I can't stop. I truly feel I have an addiction to sugar and starches. I can literally eat myself sick and all it takes is a "taste" to the cravings back and then my mind starts playing tricks on me. Whenever I derail, it usually takes months of "tomorrows" and 15-20 pounds gained till I get back on track. Last August I started a new job and was under a tremendous amount of stress and I have since gained all my weight back. When I started that last time, I went in with the mentality that I CANNOT have those trigger foods and I got down to 189...that's amazing for me. Then I started my new job and all it took was 1 lousy muffin at a morning meeting that derailed me. And here I am with tons of mini-restarts behind me at 245! That last derailment only confirmed in my mind that I cannot eat sugar or starches. I lose control!!!! Good luck to us! Stay strong. It can be done!

Back down to 190.8 this morning! If I can just get back in the 180's again I think it will be easier for me mentally! I honestly don't remember going from the 170's to the 180's. It was like it happened overnight!
