Tips…fighting weight loss!

I have researched tips..helps…and must do’s on weight loss… you can google it and find hundreds if not thousands of ideas…. I have sifted through them to come up with the ones I want to implement..

I can’t believe 2015 is here! Oh where has the time gone? I will turn 59 in May? Really? 59? OMG! 2014 was an incredible year for me.. became a GRANDMOTHER! My little grandson was born on December 20th! That little man has stolen my heart from the moment I laid eyes on him.. I love him sooo much. He has also saved his grandmothers life… on one swoop….one photo… one moment captured in time for ever… his first Photo of Himself with his Grandma….OMG! I cried….how in the HELL did I get this fat??? How can you even see this beautiful little baby boy among the layers of fat that he is laying on called his grandmother? When did I get this fat??? And why didn’t anyone tell me?
Let me back up a bit… if I was told to describe myself …I would say that I am a fun loving… adventure seeking free spirited person.. I love the ocean ..kayaking… swimming… hiking…meeting people..and want to enjoy life to the fullest…reality is…I am a big fat mess… I haven’t been to the ocean in two years… I couldn’t even begin to fit into a kayak let along ride in one… the only hike I have been on in the last 8 years..has been to the mailbox…or climbing the three steps into my house…adventurous? Really what is that? free spirited ? Really Beverly? Maybe back in 2005? And exercise? What is this again? I have a bike.. a gazzell…and one of the large balls to sit on… I have more weights than my local gym…and a WII that hasn’t been used in over two years… What happened..? I think I quit enjoying things I use to do..and fell out of love with myself.. Let me back up again… in 2005 I met the love of my life.. my soul mate..I was in the best shape I had been in for years…having come off a very one sided marriage that was full of lies and deciete..I had FINALLY found the my soul mate.. the man Who was a part of me.. my love. my heart my world…I had never met anyone like him.. ever… a Sgt Major in The Marine Corps ..a mover and a shaker who taught me more about myself than I had ever known.. He made me believe in my own self and the power that I had inside me..He let me be me..and loved me for it..we were equals…partners in love and life..and we were separated my thousands of miles..he in Germany me in North Carolina.. but we made it work..we learned everything about each other.. we talked for HOURS on the phone..we hated every moment we were apart and the best part of our days was when we were together..he made me whole…we shared things about our hopes and dreams and things about our past…that I had never shared with anyone..little things.. big things… he completed me…he was my “other” half.. we were lovers and best friends..we were inseperatable..and I still feel that way today.. but life and family…appreared its ugly head and we were forced to live stated apart, connected by love..and what was in our hearts..but duty called…and for reason I won’t explain..we have to live separate lives..peeking in on each other..and still promising our love..but apart.. is how it must be. some may not understand and that is ok.. but we shall forever be in each others hearts..I now know life changed so much for me..with him not in it…in the way I wanted.. and I didn’t want anyone else..I still don’t…and I have done a really good job of NO one wanting me..depressed and lonely.. I made up my own little world that I wasn’t going to let anyone else in…. I did it well..it’s easy Now to look back and re think my life and how I got here.. sometimes it’s painful…but I need to understand how I got here… to understand how to get back to my old self..my healthier self.. to have lost the greatest love of my life.. at times is painful..but knowing that I at least had it.. helps… so my grandson has let me fall in love again. something I never thought I would ever do again… I want to get healthy to live longer and to be in my grandson’s live as long as I possibly can… this little boy is saving my life.. he has given me hope… love.. and a reason to move on.. he is helping to heal my heart.. something that no one else has been able to do… I shall be forever a grateful grandma…here is 2015 being my best year yet! In my next post I will share how I am going to do this… until then.. have a great new year!soulmate

Educate yourself to a healthier you!

healthy breakfast
VS
sasuage egg and cheese

As I am traveling on my healthy journey I am trying to educate myself on the why’s and how’s of nutrition..recently I have started to track different area’s of nutrition…not only calories..but carbs,fat,Protein, Sodium and sugar’s…
In doing this I have started to made some comparison’s to what my life was like before in the matters of what I ate daily…I am trying to not only get healthy , but to understand the how and why’s so I do not do it all over again. I think the more I can understand about food and what it does to our bodies..the more we are able to make educated decisions that will benefit our bodies.
Today is my first of what I am sure to be..many comparison’s… I must say I am shocked at the results…it’s no wonder I am fat…in my mind …I was thinking..that One sasuage egg and cheese biscuit..would be better for me than say…donuts from Dunkin doughnuts.. or some type of pastry…but in reality it was worse!

Here is my first Comparison’s….

Item Calories Carbs Fat Protein Sodium Sugar
Hardee’s Sausage, Egg & Cheese 630 37 45 18 1520 4
Glazed Donut 260 31 14 3 330 12
______________________________________________________________________________________
Healthy Meal
2 eggs 120 1 9 12 124 0
2 ww toast 140 13 1 3 125 2
peach fresh 33 8 0 1 0 8
______________________________________________________________________________________
TOTAL 293 22 10 16 249 10

I was shocked that I was eating 630 calories for breakfast! 31 carbs and 1520 of sodium! And this was every week Monday through Friday on my way to work! OMG! And if someone brought donuts..I would eat one or two of those! UGH!

I no longer go through the drive through window at fast food joints..nor do I eat in my car.. I plan my meals..down to the last morsel…some might think this is too rigid for them.. but let me ask you this.. How are you doing with eating on the run? Would you be reading this if it was working for you?? Maybe being rigid is a good thing…and it could help.. I know one day it will all be second nature for me to eat healthy.. but right now I need a plan..and figuring out the nutritional value of what is being put into my body…is my priority these days! I urge you to do the same.. educate yourself..knowledge can be a wonderful tool for you to win your battle with food..we can’t eliminate food completly..so I need to learn to live with it..the best way I can..so that I can have a healthy body..yes, I am just beginning to learn about nutrition…but each day I make my numbers in my food diary on MY FITNESS PAL..IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD!
Give this a try…and get MYFITNESS PAL and start tracking your numbers…it will benefit you…and you will be on the right path to a healthier you! I wish you the best…

Addiction

Food-AddictI can’t imagine what its like to be a drug addict..to want a high so badly you will go through thousands of dollars just to get a high..I don’t like to take over the counter drugs unless necessary…let alone the hard stuff..when I had my knee operation..I didn’t like taking the pain medicine..because of the way it makes me feel..I would rather have the pain…how can you like how that makes you feel? And not knowing if the next high is going to kill you… or not..a chance I am not willing to take…why take something that isn’t going to let you remember what the heck you did the night before? I just can’t wrap my head around this…

I can’t imagine what it’s like to NEED a drink everyday… I have beer and wine in my frig that had been there over a year now..I know for some, that it would of been gone the next day….everyday they stop and grab that 12 pack on the way home…and finish it off..before bedtime…Don’t get me wrong.. I enjoy a nice glass of wine..but the rest of the bottle goes to waste…I may have a white Russian if I am out for dinner..but one is enough.. I’ve never been drunk…NEVER… Two glasses of wine and I know I don’t like how it make me feel.. I like having complete control…I don’t like how alcohol makes me feel.. I can’t understand why people can’t see that they can’t drive after have too much? If you fumble while getting the keys in the ignition.. don’t drive.. it’s a no brainer.. how do you like laying by the toilet and puking your guts out? Yet, You still enjoy doing it all over again..tomorrow.. Not me…lives and familes are ruined by alcohol…why do it?

I enjoy sex.. but I can’t imagine being addicted to it and giving up my body to anyone that I meet….or being addicted to looking at it…people meet in the back alley and arrange sex…with a stranger and then go home to their partner..and do it again.. I’d be afraid some creep would kill me.. or that I would end up with a STD..or even AIDS..isn’t this degrading to you? How can you be addicted to this? How does it even begin?

And don’t get me started on cigarettes…I’ve kissed a man who smoked and it tasted awful! I have lived with a smoker and seen his yellow teeth and smelled the smoke on his clothing.. I hated it.. how can you want to stick a cig in your mouth and do all that harm to your lungs! We have all seen the pictures of the smokers lungs…black with tar like substance …and the cancer.. they spend millions of dollars on campaigns to keep young kids to stop..and yet.. its a multi dollar business… no matter what anyone says.. it’s not cool to smoke..not to mention the cost of a carton of those things! How do you like spending all of your hard earned money like that??? Up in smoke!
No I can’t understand how a person gets addicted to smoking.. drinking.. drugs..and sex…..those things don’t interest me…however….
I do under stand being addicted to food.. I understand how it make me feel better after a long day at work.. I understand that no matter how bad my day goes..that I can turn to the freezer and reach for the half gallon of ice cream… and eat myself happy…
I get great pleasure out of eating.. it comforts my soul.. it can make a bad day better.. a fight..tolerable..it can heal my broken heart.. and make me feel better inside..I use food like a druggie uses a needle.. it make me feel better.. and it’s not illegal.. No one cares if I stuff myself and weigh 300 pounds.. no one says a word…

In fact many family and friends of mine are are enablers … my hook up..my pimp…my dealer…see they make things to eat that I like and they even encourage me to eat me.. oh I am not blaming them.. I am just telling you they are enablers..and they don’t even know it..

If I was a alcoholic..would you ask me over to your house and offer me a drink? Or if I was a addicted to drugs..would you ask me over and have some on a silver platter for me?
If you saw me destroying myself with alcohol and drugs.. you would intervene? Why of course you would..
then why don’t you do that for me..? The food addict? Why not encourage me to seek help for my addiction???
Why not talk to me as my weight rises..and not ignore it?
Do you think I enjoy being fat? DO you think I just eat to much so I am getting fat? Do you even care?
It’s a disease that is not spoken about..after all you don’t want to hurt my feelings, right?

I have often said that I wish I wouldn’t have taken up the food addiction vise.. why? Cause I can get no help..if I was addicted to just about anything else..my insurance would pay for me to get help.. and certainly my family would seek that help for me.. out of sight out of mind..with alcohol..drugs.and tabacco…
but not with food addiction.. I still have to eat.. and to someone that LOVES food and is addicted to it.. there is no half ass way to do it.. all of nothing..yes , I eat all…everything.. and then afterwards I feel guilt..shame.. and despair.. which in turns makes me want to eat more to make me feel better..its a vicious circle..one that is difficult to break..but I am trying..
I started attending OA, Overeaters Anonymous …I attend the phone meetings.. it helps me be more aware..of what I am eating.. and allows me to be accountable..this helps me..my family still doesn’t get it.. nor my friends.. and I understand that. it’s really ok..I need to get through this..breakthrough my addiction myself..and with GOD.. at my side..
I hope that one day people who have a food addiction will have a place to get help..a outreach program..even a in house program to learn how to eat again.. I am going to beat this food addiction.. even if I feel that it is the hardest addiction on earth to kick.. after all I can drive down one block and find a fast food joint..just waiting to help me get my food fix! Hell they even have Dollar menu …that I can always afford something to fill my need…I get to walk the isle at Walmart and find just about any food that I want to get my fix..and if I am lucky..they are giving out samples… and being the kind person that I am.. sometimes they will give me seconds! Every second of every day food is on my mind.. every where I look..on TV on Bill boards..in Magazines.. I can find food porn.. and something new that could help me stay in this addiction!
But I want out… I have to get out.. I need to get out..I want out! So step by step. I will fight back.. I am stepping up and taking responsibility for my choices…I am eliminating many unhealthy things.. I started with Diet Coke.. I use to drink 6=8 a day.. I have been diet coke free for three weeks now.. and I feel better already.. my heartburn at night has stopped.. and I thirst for water now.. the colder the better! Now I have eliminated fast foods..I don’t go.. I can’t go.. I don’t have control..it’s not good for me.. so I am removing it from my life…period..next will be packaged food…all packaged foods..then white flour…baby steps..tomorrow is my first face to face OA meeting .. and I am scared shitless! But I am going… I am not sure what to expect…but I am looking forward to this very much.. the phone meetings are great..but this will be even better! wish me luck.. .and to those who are suffering with food addiction.. please reach out to someone.. a friend. pastor ..doctor…ask for help… and find OA ..go to the internet and find the phone numbers and conference call code to participate..it does help..
Cheers!

Good Morning!

idid
I made it through the evening without touching that Blue Bell Ice Cream in my freezer! And I feel GREAT about that!! This morning I ate a sausage , egg, peppers and cheese breakfast bowl! Yes from Atkins! And I loved every bite! Now I am sipping on some hot tea..this first day of August, 2014..because it feels like a fall day! Only 60’s today, and chance of rain!

It’s now 9:57 am and already I have cleaned the kitchen..washed two loads of clothes..but a roast on to cook..cleaned out the pool…gave the dog a bathe…and finally sitting down to blogging…for just a bit…WOW! Far cry from Miss drag my ass out of bed girl! Energy is coming back.. and I like it! No heavy loaded down feeling…interesting observation..and all I did was change what foods I decided to put in my body..interesting..

I tons more stuff to do today.. still unpacking from my two week stay with my Mum in Ohio.. wishing I was still with her right now..ok slap my face and knock me back into reality…lots to do.. final exams to study for..(yek) and a bedroom to reorganize so our favorite guest can sleep in there when they come to visit!

Just wanted to share with you my changed in energy level..and my hunger pains are finally calming down..going to do some meal planning that I will share with you all later…I am going to save this as a draft..and finish this evening..
TaTa!

I made a roast today for dinner.. since I have a unhealthy relationship with food.. I wanted to make sure I didn’t sit down and eat the whole thing..so I made plans to make the cooked roast into several different meals. For my son.. I added potatoes, onions and carrots..he ate it for lunch and dinner..
10477069_10204293164146670_115858320012845446_n
I had a portion for dinner ( mine has roast, onions, baby carrot and French green beans…) and then I made three to freeze.. I added some french green beans and one chopped tiny carrot to each. I also used a cup of water and a packet of seasoning to the whole roast..total carb count is ( 2 carbs for seasoning, 1 for baby carrot & onion..and 2 for French cut green beans) Total 5 carbs for the meal. Plus No things in it I don’t want!
10440763_10204293164466678_4245444756713288026_n
I have wrapped them well with plastic wrap.. if they cook up well after freezing them I will be making more..keep posted for updates and recipes for my frozen low carb meals!
I like the fact that I knew that it was possible that I would eat the whole roast..and recognized that I needed to portion it out into meals.. recognizing these little things is important to my success !

Choosing a food plan just for you!

maxresdefault

I know I am probably get a lot of flack for my choice of food plan to follow..but your not me..no food plan is for each of us..if it was we would all be skinny! We have to figure out the road we want to take..count calories,low fat, low carb, paleo,weight watchers, tops, clean eating..no matter which one you choose..it has to be personalized for you..I’ve choosen low carb..because I can eat…there I said it.. I can eat real food..and not feel deprived. I love eggs..( ask me that in two months) I love meat.. oh I will miss bread and pasta..and sweets..but I wanted to cut out sugar..and white flour..I have experimented with cutting back on flour and do notice a big change in how I feel. Also I have done Atkins before.. I lose a considerable amount of weight. But had a false sense of security that I would never gain it back..and didn’t work on a Lifetime Maintenance plan. Big mistake on my part. And I have since understood the importance of maintenance in weight loss. No matter what plan you choose..you must always figure out and follow a maintenance plan of some kind. If not.. you will be where I am and doing it all over again!
I am all for convenience in the beginning weeks of following my food plan. .on days I work I just want to grab something quickly. And still stay on my program.. Atkins allows that! And tons of choices for me to choose from.
atkinsmeals

Atkins dinners are a big help for me.. And they taste great! I haven’t met one I didn’t like.. Right now they are a little costly..but I think they are worth it! Tonight I had the Atkins Italian-Style Pasta Bake.. YUMMY! I enjoyed every bite! I hope Atkins will continue to add to this line of products..my only word of caution is that you must limit the number of these you have a day. or It can slow down your weight loss. Atkins has a line of Protein bars.. Protein Drinks and even candies..
strawberryprotein
mmchchip</a They can help you through any sweet attack..and the protein drinks are to die for! Serve over a big glass of ice..and yummo!…The protein bars fit in my purse for food attacks and late meetings..stopping my hunger! And the best thing is that I stay on track! No trips to the vending machine or coffee shop! just remember to use in moderation!

I will be featuring my review’s on each new Atkins product that I try… nope I’m not a ATKINS paid spokesperson..but maybe one day I could be! Right now I will leave that to…….Sharon!

NOTES: Today was a good day… lots of energy again today.. I hope this stays!!! I get alot done that’s for sure.. of course maybe it has to also do with canning the cable TV!!! Planning my food intake the night before is really helpful for me.. I don’t have to stick to it.. their’s no food plan police out to get me..if I don’t go by whats on the plan.. but I am finding I am sticking to it…I like it cause sometimes I grab the first thing I see..when I’m hungry.. and it may not be good stuff…this way I have a plan…another VICTORY!

Water water water… I love water. But if I am being honest.. I do miss my diet coke.. I know, I know it isn’t good for me..but I do miss it.. I am drinking water, hot tea and some peach Iced tea , no sugar..mostly hot tea and water.. the peach tea is my treat! I should try and find a low carb protein drink.. I haven’t found a low carb one I like yet.. when I do I will let you know..

I am feeling so much better these days.. my blood pressure has stayed down.. and I am just feeling healthy! I am looking forward to a trip to DC in two weeks to see my son and daughter in law!! A little worried about the eating out thing.. but I am going to carry some approved snacks..and my water! I can always go for meat and salad..just don’t take me for pizza!!! EEEKS! It will be a fun time!

NOTES: TODAY I got more engery!!! Keep it coming.. I continued to upgrade my bedroom after rearranging it yesterday.. kept me busy along with doing more laundry…does it ever end??? I am finding that more and more..food is not the front of my mind these days… In fact if it wasn’t for taking medicine.. I would probably have skipped lunch.. not that I recommend that.. I just wasn’t hungry.. which makes me wonder.. if I am not hungry.. do I have to eat? I have to eat something cause my medicine kills my stomach if I don’t .. but the salad wrap… isn’t heavy..so I don’t mind it..but I am going to try and find something else maybe carb free to eat when I am not hungry and yet need to eat something to take the medicine..humm…have to give that a thought or two!!!
I like the fact food is getting less and less attention in my life..that will help me alot…of course when you have a food addiction and your hobbies are food related ( canning, baking, cooking..bread making) UGH! These are things I love to do…but I am trying to change somethings around so food isn’t so much a part of my life..small changes…like crocheting…that I like.. and you can’t crochet and eat that is for sure! So another change will be to change up my hobbies.. I also need to find a ACTIVE hobby… like hiking.. I use to love hiking..but with the bad knees that has changed…maybe kayaking.. I use to love that …anything in the water would be great!!!

Still loving the swimming.. been three weeks now.. its enjoyable for me..but I am very aware of my size..I wear a bathingsuite with shorts..and a top..they make me take the top off..even though it is made for the water..something about the fibers messing up the pool filter.. I reall doubt if My top will break the thing..but they have this NAZI pool police/lifeguard…who I think is a dirty old man and just likes to see our boobs! One day I will get the nerve to ask the director at the Senior Center..

Taking out the Cable in our house has really been a game changer…you don’t realize how much you just sit in a day and watch show after show…I have to “FIND” things to keep me busy! Once the weather is nicer it won’t be an issue..for now I have the cleanest house in town! And the minute your clothes drop to the floor…before you know it they are cleaned …dried..and back in your closent!! HEHE!

Lately I have been thinking about what I want to do when I get this weight off…and I have come up with a list of sort…#1 Help others win the battle against food addiction
#2 Travel as much as possible…overseas and state side..
#3 Become a travel tour guide? Mananger?
#4 Write a book about food addiction and bring it to the forfront of Doctor’s and other to help people get help for their addiction
#5 Write a guide to becoming active for those who are over 100 pounds over weight
#6 Educate others about this diease…food addiction…
#7 Go around in my RV to promote exercise and healthy eating to Those over 100 pounds overweight …churches…nursing homes…senior centeres..senior housing..retirement centers..

I am sure I will add to this ever growing list…but it is getting there!!!
Hope you have a great day!
Cheers!
