Well, the holidays are coming up.  I always seem to start some kind of diet just before the holidays and then it all goes to pot.  I plan on eating what I want just not as much of it this year.  I will have a house full of company.  Mom, grandma, brother, niece and her husband, my husband, and 3 children.  All will be staying here with us.  I am excited about them coming!  Haven't got to spend much time with my brother in a long while.  We are planning on lots of fun. 

My brother started Medifast back in January.  He has lost about 60 pounds.  He looks great!  I am so proud of him.  My mother-in-law started some new diabetic shot and has lost a lot of weight.  She looks great!  They have been a lot of the inspiration on my decision to finally take the plunge and lose the weight.  Of course, my husband and children have been the most. 

I saw an ad on TV yesterday about HCG.  I'm going on Wednesday to check it out.  I will let you know what I find out.  I know how things get all hyped up and turn out to be let downs.  Trying not to get my hopes up.  I'm sure it will be expensive because you have to be under the care of a physician.  We will see how it turns out. 

Till then...

Date Night

My husband and I had a date earlier today.  He has been working alot lately and he also helps out with the local football team.  Needless to say he hasn't been home much.  We had opportunity to spend the afternoon together to so we took it.  What did we do?  Eat.  Olive Garden and Coldstone Creamery.  It was very good. 

Have I ever mentioned that I LOVE food.  I love textures, tastes, smells, etc.  I love everything about it.  I love to cook it.  I love for someone else to cook it for me.  I love to cook for others.  I'm good at it.  I can take any recipe and make it better.  I call it my talent.  I LOVE food. 

If there is anyone out there that has any idea how to break this love affair I would "love" to hear your ideas. 

These last couple of weeks have been horrible.  I know that I have failed.  Food has won the short term battles lately.  I have all but given up.  Then I remember why I decided to try to lose the weight to begin with.  I look bad, I feel bad, I have a hard time doing anything.  I am unhealthy.  I would hate to know what my cholesterol is.  I'm sure that I am borderline diabetic.  I probably have high blood pressure.  I know these things yet I still LOVE food.

HELP!! I'm following a couple of blogs now.  They keep leaving one very important thing to finance all this healthy food!!!  I wish someone would please show me how to eat healthy on a budget!

Very frustrating!


I haven't posted in a few days.  I haven't been very good.  I don't think I will post my menu b/c it contains stuff like Sonic, Chick-fil-a, Schlotzsky's, etc.  You one had to tell me, or even teach me to eat bad.  Why do bad foods taste soooo good?  My conspiracy theory is coming to mind.  If you don't know what that the first post I made. 

I'm not even sure what I want to say today.  I am having such a hard time finding time to exercise.  My life is very hectic right now.  I have one child fixin to graduate.  She is keeping me very busy (not to mention my pocket book empty, too!)  My middle child keeps me running from one town to another to watch football.  My youngest is fixin to start basketball which will keep me busy running too.  After basketball comes then baseball starts.  When baseball ends then summer kicks into full swing with VBS, summer camp, and so on.  I spent good money on a membership and all of the sudden I can't find time to go and use it.  Not sure how to work all this out.

As I mentioned before....I love food.  The bad stuff.  The stuff that makes you fat.  Have I mentioned before that it is cheaper than the good stuff?  If anyone has any ideas on how to feed a family of five healthy foods (all of which are basically adults) I am open for suggestions. 

Trying again tomorrow.
