My Day Off

Friday, January 16th 2009

This is day off from work. I guess I thought it was my day off from dieting. I started out by eating 2 fig bars before breakfast. Than I had my breakfast of cereal . I am still hungry. But I am going to wait. What am I going to wait for? I am not waiting to raid the pantry, I am going to wait for lunch. It is so cold outside, it really seems like a good day to munch. I have been thinking all week,about making cookies today when my grandchildren come over. I most likely will because I don't want ...

Just Waking Up

Thursday, January 15th 2009

It is the coldest day of the year here. It is supposed to get to the high of 29 degrees. It snowed last night but it wasn't much. I looked out the window and it looked like someone took a sifter and lightly dusted the lawns and the housetops. I was actually dreaming about snow in my warm cozy waterbed. I had a brand new Charger car and people were skidding on the ice all over the place and I was just confidently driving my new car. Than all of a sudden I was standing on the side of a mountain ro...

Wednesday, January 7th 2009

It is so quiet today, except for my Doberman barking outside wanting the dogs across the fence to come out and play.

I have learned no one can put a value on me except the value that I accept. I am valuable. Just as I am today, I am valuable. Losing weight is not going to make me more valuable. Losing weight will give ...

It seems so Simple

Tuesday, January 6th 2009

It seems so simple to lose weight. Eat less calories, exercise more. My husband has preached this to me for years, it is his favorite speech to me as I go on my endless rabbit trails of diets. He is British and we lived in the UK for 5 years. That is where I started going to Slimming World where I was told I could eat everything I wanted of certain food groups. I lost weight but very, very slowly. Than I started WW, I did exceptionally well on it. I lost weight almost every week, loved the meeti...

I started my annual spring cleaning, before spring. This house could not wait for spring. All the company is gone now from the holidays. I am also spring cleaning my diet at the same time. It is time to not only lose weight, but learn how to eat healthy food,that I enjoy . It is really nice to sit here at my desk, without clutter everywhere. Sometimes we just need to declutter in order to discover who we really are underneath all the clutter. I need to go and make my lunch, and hopefully it will...
