aaawww look at all us hairy heiffers getting our **** together and bringing it back to the LCF. <throws gang sign> I have been doing a lot of thinking lately (uh oh) and am slowly gearing myself up to doing what really needs to be done. The hard work. The really hard work. The really really ridiculously hard work. Next tuesday is my day. Boy back in school, hubby back to work, everyone back to the regularly scheduled program. I need to hit it and hit it hard. No more namby pamby. I have to cut the carbs, cut the calories and cut the crap. This is reality dawning on me. I need to lose 100 pounds. ONE HUNDRED POUNDS. This is not an impossible feat. It is not against all odds. It is completely doable. BUT:

Why do I think it should be cushy la la fairy land with unicorns and glitter cannons and roller skates and Bee Gees music? Why do I think I can just do the minimum and be successful? Reality and my expectations just don't jibe.

Expectation: Just do low carb, silly. It's easy!

Reality: ****. That's not enough.

The food is delicious, exercise feels good, what the hell is my problem? Why have I wasted 10 years ****ing around and not really doing it right? Not doing it until goals are met? WTH??

Meh. I have to go get dinner out of the oven for three little hungry boys. Be back later. I have a lot on my mind. A lot of organizing and prepping and steeling myself to do.

psssst Kitty! Go google Laci Green and check out her Tumblr. She has a lot of positive body image stuff going on, and it really is helping me get over myself.

Here is a link to the Laci Green positive body image stuff-- just in case anyone is all squeamish about her frank sex talk.

Oh Ang I just love you, I love that!! Man wouldn't that be a fun place???? LOL

It is hard but when we all do it together it is not that bad!! We all have our ups and downs, most of us have royally screwed up our systems which makes it even harder but it can be done!

Kitty- you crack me up too!!!

GOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING!

Day one back on track. For reals. Back to measuring and counting and weighing and really facing it. I'm okay. Spent the summer getting used to not being disgusted with myself, so I feel fine, despite the fact I'm HEAVIER THAN I'VE EVER BEEN IN MY WHOLE LIFE EVEN MORE THAN NINE MONTHS PREGNANT. Sheesh. If that can't turn me into a puddle of insecure goo, nothing will.

I will be doing my old fashioned daily reports again, but not until night time... I am locking myself out of the computer until 8:30. I have to. This here pretty much sums up my life recently:



And so I absolutely cannot have access or I will just fall into the internet pit. I'm dumb that way. So, I will be saying a quick good morning, and then I'm out until my full report at night. Wah.

Have an awesome day, everyone! I will!

Good evening, all!

Well, I'm not ready for reporting. I'm so tired! I did weigh this morning, and I did stay all low carb. That's really my plan for the day-- just eat low carb and walk the dog. Done and done. I got plenty done, and will do it again tomorrow. Thanks for the support! You guys rock! I'm in the early stages of getting it all together, but I actually am getting it all together. I have life goals, baby!

See you in the morning!

Yay Ang! GLAMAZON is back!!!!!! Love that graphic of the internet pit - geez I've been living in there!

Love your fierce determination. No more f*ing around for me either!

Amber you are right this is easier together - the highs AND the lows.

Hi Angela!

Decided it had been a while since I had made the rounds of the Journals so thought that I would try to check in on folks and see what is up. I guess I have missed what has been going on with you this summer so I will read back through to catch up. I began strict low carb again two weeks ago as I had managed to gain 16 lbs over the summer. I have dropped 10 in two weeks. Appear to now be in a holding pattern. Hoping I can make it through today on plan as I have a luncheon that I didn't really know/plan on for the Building Better Moms Group that I joined for this school year. Ugh! Hope they don't do too many luncheons!

Hope you are doing well on day 2. Take care!

Thanks,Kitty! How's school?

ooooo Amber, I love having my routine back. It gets blown all to hell over the summer, don't quite know why this disrupts my food habits, I'm dumb that way I guess. BACK TO BUSINESS!

Hi DG! Oh, That little pic of the internet pit is too appropriate for me. That is my life. Must. Make. It. Stop! If you are as badly off as I am, google Cold Turkey Internet Block, and it will lock you out of your trouble websites for a specified amount of time. You still have access to the internet, just not the websites you specify... I have a list of about 10 time wasters I have to keep myself away from, but the rest of the net I actually do need. Works so well!

Hi KC Mama! Nothing seriosu happening to me, just lots of wishy washy not following my plan and whining about it. Eh. I'm back. Have to. Getting too fat! Glad you lost most of your summer Blotation Device-- the rest will come off too!

So, did well yesterday, but I WAS STARVING becasue I ate too early, I had breakfast with my son, and that doesn't work out for me too well. 10, 2 and 6 work out best for me, so I just need to stick with that if I want to eliminate snacks. Otherwise, I have to have a snack to help me make it to the next mealtime. Actual gnawing rumbling hunger! Hate that.

So here's to another successful day! I am locking myself out again until evening. Making tutus today for a holiday bazaar in December... no last minute scramble for me!

Have an awesome low carb day, everyone!

High fives all around! Had another fine day, low carb food and dog walk. Made purple tutus. Exhausted. Still want to make full reports but, well, whatever. I'm good.

XOXOXOX

PURPLE TUTUS!!!!!

When I read what you said about that cold turkey program for the internet, I had an immediate NOOOOOOOO reaction. Do you think I'm internet addicted??? Um...yeah maybe!

Have a fabulous day. I'm feeding off your energy.

Amber if you divorce the hummus, who gets to keep the vegetables?

Shoot, I love hummus. No can do. Everything is out unless it's fat, meat, veg or berry. I'm trying to eat only three times a day (plenty of food) but man that's hard. Thats' my end goal, though-- just three nice filling meals and KEEPING BUSY THE REST OF THE TIME SO I DON'T THINK ABOUT FOOD. Yeah, that's pretty much the key for me, keeping busy. Trying! Have so much to do! Need to eat the good lc foods to give me the energy to do it. I am a naturally slothy person, so it is taking a lot of effort. Today, more tutus. Then I have to get back to my real business, costumes. Go! Go! Go!

DG the Cold Turkey thing is pretty great, it really really helps-- especially because it doesn't block the entire internet-- just the time wasters-- and it can't be reasoned with or turned off... once you click, you are DONE until the time you specify. It's a good thing.
