The best discovery ever!

May 13, 2010

I have been out of the loop for sooo very long. Life seems to just happen sometimes and it takes a set back to put us back on track. I am nearing my 3th year reunion since my RNY. I lost 135 pounds in the first year and then maintained it until the past year. Since then, I have started to gain a few pounds here and there. I got burned out on many of the foods I ate regularly and I had stopped walking every day.  But the good news is I have found an amazing Shake that is the healthiest meal of the day and if taste incredible!  It is called Shakeology!  It is brought to you by Beachbody and I can hook you up.  Take the time to watch the video on my web site and  while you are there find some fantastic workouts for all levels of exercise. Shakeology comes with its own work out plan and is 100% guaranteed.     or

Do you find yourself wanting to eat anytime?

Feb 21, 2008

I think many of us have issues with food. I have always been an emotional eater. Before I had RNY I spent several months attending a support group for people addicted to eating or over-eaters. Most found food to be their choice of "DRUG".  I think when I was young Sex was my drug or the need to feel loved or a deeper connection with the opposite sex.  I did not feel love from my Dad until I was older and could see how much he loved us kids. He just not a huggy-kissy person.  Now I struggle with the same to a point.  But I have noticed that if I get mad at my husband, if I am board or worried, I want something with CARBS.   I am trying to pick up a bottle of water and drink it when I get that earge. (I never get enough water in anyway)  If you have this problem and can share what works for you. Feel free to sent your suggestions my way. I can use all the help I can get.  Thanks and God bless.

People say I am looking thinner.

I haven't lost much in the pass few months.  I am not going to worry to much. I know my body is changing. I am hoping by spring I will drop some more. I am getting closer to my goal. I do want to be under 200 by my Birthday in March. If I lose 10-15 pound by then I will be at goal. I think that is doable! Eating to live, not living to eat! 

Scale is moving slowly

Jan 21, 2008

Well after a month of stalling I have started losing a pound every day or two. I am trying to drink more water, and taking better account of what I put in my mouth. I am also trying to get back to walking. Since the weather change I am having to use my 'Walking Away the Pounds' DVD. I also picked up some light weights to incorperate into my walking.  I am happy to report, I have lost another pant size. I am starting to feel like my old self.  More free to be me than when I was trapped under all  that fat.   Thanking God everyday for away out of my hell on earth.

Stuck again

Jan 04, 2008

I need to write a song called stuck again. I know it is in part because I haven't been walking as much due to the weather but come on.  I still need to make me some kind of chart to get all these vitamins in everyday.  I also need to start writing everything I put in my month so I can find out if I am getting enough of what I need each day. I find this part the hardest to be consistant with. Making time my friend and not my enemy is another. I am still working on changing how I think and do things. It  is a daily struggle. But I will NEVER give up because I AM WORTH IT and I AM AN ACHIEVER!

I went to the gym yesterday and started drinking more water. I have lost two pounds. I hope it keeps going down!

I am choosing to exercise my american right to NOT be "politically correct". Christmas is the celebration of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ's birth. I refuse to water down the truth. After all, Jesus IS the reason for the Season.
So with that said
, I wish you a Very Merry Christmas!

Thankful for WOW moments.

Well I have reached my frist goal of a 100 pound weight loss by Christmas.  Next year will be a time of fine tuning my eating and exercize for a life time. I am excited to see the return of ME. No longer hid under all that fat. Thanks you God for answering prayer. I am so thankful.

Made it through Thanksgiving!

Nov 24, 2007

Well, I made it through the one day of the year I would have ate myself sick in the past.  It was refreshing and very eye opening to see just how little I needed to eat to feel satisfied, yet remain comfortable. My mom just found out she is diabetic. So I cooked about 10 sugar free desserts. Everyone was surprised at how good they were. My mom was really feeling sad until she realized how many choice are out there. I made a pecan pie with Steel MS, I made a pumpin pie with agave necter. I made a low fat cheese cake with stevia and several desserts with splenda,  sugar free pudding and pie fillings. Oh, I  made a really great peanut-butter pie with a chocolote crust too,  it was low fat, high protien and sugar free.    And I had a taste of them all with in the past couple days. The amazing thing for me in when I stepped on the scale this morning, I had lost 2  more pounds. I am only 4 pounds from reaching my goal of 100 pounds lost by Christmas.  PRAISE GOD!!!!

Hay, before I forget, I started making a new protien shake. Many of you know that I have started lossing my hair because I am not getting enough protien. I just HATE the shakes. BUT, I went to the whole food store in Clayton the other day and picked up a few key ingredients. Agavy nector for sweetening.  Great stuff!  Also Almond Milk and Jarrow's Caribbean Chocolate Whey Protein. I have been making at least one a day and I like it!    Oh MY! I better get to bed. Singing in the Praise Band for three services back to back can be tiring, if you haven't had your beauty sleep.Sweet dreams and God bless!

Happy Thanksgiving!

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
