It's been a while but I'm back
Monday, May 15, 2017      5 comments

It's been a while and I tend to go back and forth. I don't know if this will ever be easy but I am grateful to be back. I was thinking and then I was praying and I asked God out of all of the ways that I have lost weight what should I do. I own ... Read more

This is ridiculous, it is 2:08 in the a.m. and I am up because my stomach is cutting up so badly and I know exactly what it was, it was the frosted mini wheats and probably all the crackers I had today. A few months ago I was on South Beach Phas... Read more

Motivated to Keep Tracking
Tuesday, May 14, 2013      3 comments

I am blown away but how much tracking my food is totally changing the way that I eat. The first day I tracked I went over my calories (which was fine) all the other days except for Mother's Day I have actually been under. In a way, for me it is ... Read more
First Day of Tracking
Saturday, May 11, 2013      5 comments

My first day of tracking went really well. I expected to be way over my calorie count but I really only went over it by 169 calories and for me that is amazing because I've been having horrible binges like almost every day for the last few weeks... Read more
Tracking and going really slow
Friday, May 10, 2013      6 comments

I've decided to go slow really slow, I realize that being hungry just scares the tar out of me and it goes back to being a child and having a lot of hungry days. I learned back then to stock up on my eating because I did not know when I would ea... Read more

Yesterday, not quite so good
Thursday, June 09, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday I was going to fast. It's something my church always did once a week when I was growing up, but it was not good for me. I ended up getting really hungry and feeling overwhelmed and I ate just about everything in my kitchen, now I woke ... Read more

It's working. I weighed in at 199 on June 2nd and today I weighed in at 194.8. I guess the best part of it is I haven't starved myself in anyway what so ever, but it's amazing what just being aware of what I'm doing does and affects my life. I'm... Read more
