I wrote an article

I wrote an article I want to share with all of you about my losing weight and getting ready for the up and coming New year.
To Be A Healthier Me For New Years

Been a few days.

I have not felt so up to writing this past week. I am suffering from the Winter blahs. Its below 20 degrees here and i am feeling very closed in. I am not sure about this winter, its for the dogs I tell you. I am doing pretty good with cutting my food intake, but making all these holiday goodies are making me anxious to have the holidays be done with already. I know I need to learn self control, but why does food have to be so appealing on so many levels?

Weigh In: 259.9

It gets better with time.

I am realizing that by slowly cutting back, the weight is going to come off slowly, I am okay with this. I am being asked why dont I try this, why dont I try that, well I just want to do it this way. I want to train myself to be healthier and have better eating habits. I know I am going to make mistakes, I am human, but this way I can move forward from them and still be okay. Since I am cooking for the holidays and its only us going to be here I am making it more healthy and I dont have to make as much food. Wit the weather getting really crappy out, and me not having the correct Winter gear I have not been walking. I need to get a move on that.

I need a new friend, I broke it off with food :)

I didn't do as well as I wanted today, I didn't do bad just not as well. I realize today that I need to get out more. I need to keep the promise to walk daily, if not for exercise, but also for my sanity. I am seeing more of a pattern since I quit smoking. I stress, I open the fridge, I'm mad, I open the fridge, I'm bored, I open the fridge. I need another friend besides food.

B-3 eggs scrambled, 2 slices of toast
L-2 slices of American cheese, no bread
D-I am proud of myself here. We went to McDonald's and I had a grilled chicken Caesar salad and a bottle of water. I only used 1/2 the dressing, ate slow and was full before I finished. I didn't nibble on anyone else food, not even one fry. I walked out with a smile on my face :) A small accomplishment, but a good one.

Im irritable today but feeling better, if that makes sense

I dont know what to do with myself and its making me irritable. I think I am doing okay though. I went for a walk this afternoon, just my daughter and me. It was nice mommy/daughter time also. I think I am doing pretty well. I am staying positive and even trying to make it a family thing. I will be doing a Unit Study on the Food Pyramid later this school year so this is a good start on explaining things first hand. My goal right now is 20lbs. I have no time goal just 20lbs at a time and Ill be very happy. I think if I set my goals too large they will seem out of reach.
