    It was quite an interesting read, the past 7 some years of weight loss. Noticing mistakes and obsessions. Im glad I have this journal.
     Losing weight is easy, keeping it off is the hard part.
Everyone sais make a lifestule change, and I did, and here I am again at square one.
    Determined, but apprehensive a bit. I am my biggest sabouteur, and I am affraid of my own character. I have to change that somehow. Just need to figure out how.
Good luck to me, and to all who are in the same boat.

Feb. 2nd, 2012

It's been 4 days and I've lost 4lbs.
I have been eating regular food(granted my regular food is lean meats,fish, healthy fats, greek yogurt nuts, salads, and while grains) with the addition of extra Veggies. Making sure I eat vegetables first, and making sure I stop eating when I'm full.
I eat with a glass of water or unsweetened tea - take a bite, put the fork down take a sip.
I leave at least two bites on the plate.
Today I had dessert:
1/2 cup Greek non fat yogurt mixed with 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 2 tspn honey, topped with 1/2 cup raspberries, and sprinkled with 1 tbsn crushed almonds - Yummy.
Next time will add brandy and instant coffee.


I am a master excuse fabricator. I sprained my ankle - twise in the past three months. It happened at the peak of my fitness level. I looked great, felt amazing , willing to do more and more and then bam...
At the time ditched the Jenny Craig program, it is a great program, but I got tired of frozen food.
So I started wallowing in my sorrow, driving myself to depression without the running high. I could actually run 3 miles in half an hour. Now I have to learn to walk.

What can I say - I stopped looking in the mirror, ate whtatever was there (not really enjoong the food even) . I was really in a bad place for a long while. Gained 20 lbs and a dress size, and lost my confidence. Thank G-d for my little sister. She literally pulled me by the hair out of this thing.

I am back. Fighting the battle of the bulge.

Logging my calories on loseit, and adding veggies to every meal.
