I just lost my idenity in this blog a couple of weeks ago. Nothing is the same and 23 additions are gone along with the coloring design. Hello stress, back in my life again? Holiday eating and gaining or being on guard and constantly denying and saying no over and over again? I will not allow that kind of stress to interrupt my seven week holiday celebrations this particular year. Last year was a depressing transition that made me sick the whole season. Yes I ate on Thanksgiving, and I probably have a gain, and tonight is my weigh-in. So what. I will put my vigilance on hold and just enjoy what is left in my life as far as time and family goes. In the back of my head is knowledge of how to get healthier and live a little longer, that will be brought to the front of the line with my New Years Resolutions. Sorry if you are looking for motivation about dieting it won't be found here at this time. I will try to at least find articles to post once in a while to refresh the reason for this blog. I need technical help again to reestablish the state of this blog as it was three weeks ago. Thanks for your patience.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Though it goes against our senses to think so, what seems to be a bad alternative may be the best one.

healthy foods

See this is an example but we have to be aware of the portions. When choosing processed foods (not a good idea) make sure you do read the label to see what you are putting into your body.

too little too late

I have too much to say and not enough of time, as usual. Big deal, I'm losing about fifteen pounds a year, but, at that rate, it will take almost ten years to reach my "before-babies" goal weight. I don't think I have that much time to spare. I was five feet two inches then, I'm now four feet eleven inches. For ten years I was a boarder-line diabetic, now I'm in the ranks of daily medications. The only thing that has stayed the same is my dishonesty within myself about why I am overweight. Today it is the medications, but in reality I have always known that a more active lifestyle will always make the change that is needed to continue a consistent weight loss. Of course I could go the route of decreasing calories, or cutting way down on empty calories. The choice has always been mine, the buck stops here! As a matter of fact the weight I have lost has caused some skin to change its' molecular structure, that I am not too happy with either. Now let's get to the heart of things. Don't fail me now, I promise I will lose more weight if you let me be okay in that area again (medications and procedures, I don't like.) But when you get to be my age you are happy every day that you are just beathing, and that I am. After all I don't mind going home, but I have a lot of lose ends to tie up, if it be His will. Now this is not a goodbye. It is just speaking in retrospect and being honest with myself. I am doing good but I pledge to do better.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Effective weight management demands that you require more of yourself in terms of personal integrity, honesty, and maturity.
