Quick post

So I missed posting yesterday because I woke up yesterday morning with extreme vertigo.  It was so bad I threw up a few times yesterday morning.  Today I still have it but it is much better.  I wouldn’t trust myself to drive though.  I’m going to try to get some things done today but not sure how much because it really isn’t very comfortable looking at a computer screen.  Yesterday I didn’t eat much due to the nausea.  I guess this is all I’m going to post for now.


Petulant Child

I was so stubborn for so long about my food intake. I was like a petulant child who wanted what she wanted when she wanted it. I let myself get up to 284 lbs. and getting extreme heel pain before I finally GREW UP!  I can’t let that petulant child get away with her wanting everything when she wants it.  She needs discipline and now I am giving it to her.  It is funny that all the pain I was already in from multiple joint arthritis, the not being able to go on real hikes with my boyfriend, my other health problems – you would think those would have been enough Read more…

Day 3

This should say March 16 – not sure why it says March 17 since I wrote it on the 16th.
Well I went over my planned calorie intake today.  This will be trial and error, I’m sure and I’ll learn what I can eat and what I cannot.  I am still trying to fit in exercise into the equation.  I have to at the very least take a short walk with Lucy and, of course, I need to do much more than that.  I am determined to do this.  I think I am going to not use and just use fitbit’s food diary.  I used both the last couple of days and the fitbit seems to have just as good of a food listing.   Okay that’s all for now.  I know.  Boring post.  I’m tired though and need to get to bed.

The journey continues …

So far, so good as far as food goes … I am still working on getting more exercise into my life.  I really feel that this is it; that I am truly going to do it this time.  I am working on changing my way of thinking about food.  I truly want to believe from the bottom of my soul that I am eating to live and not living to eat.  I have always admired those people who despite how Read more…

The Beginning

March 12th – the day my new life began.  Through talking things through with my dear friend, Andi McCaffrey, I knew it was time to begin this journey – this sojourn to my new life of being healthy.  I know it is not going to be easy.  I can be lazy sometimes so difficult is not something I look forward to.  But … like Andi reminded me … I don’t want to die.  If I keep going the way I am going, I will die much younger than I should.  I want to one day be able to take hikes with my boyfriend, Gary, the love of my life.  It is embarrassing to try to go on a simple nature walk Read more…
