Think Happy Thoughts!

Oh man! When it rains it pours… and then it freezes and covers everything in a deadly layer of hazardous ice! Argh!

Just when I started recovering from Thanksgiving, my monthly pimple and crazy cravings flare up! I am up 2.5 pounds since last week which, wait… THAT TOTALLY RULES!!!

Today is Thursday! And last Thursday was Thanksgiving itself! I’ve made it through THREE huge feasts, plus the onset of my period and only gained 2.5 pounds! Woo hoo!

Okay, maybe it is a little weird cheering about gaining 2.5 pounds, but seriously, this past week was down right brutal!!!

Hopefully by next Thursday I will be back to my “Pre-Thanksgiving” weight of 145.50! I’ve been keeping up with my exercise, and my calories have been really good today! Then I’ll work on getting back to Pre-Aspartame Detoxification low of 139...

I should pick out some great rewards to work towards those goals! It’s been a while since I bribed myself decently! I better get to it!

Sigh, Thanksgiving was a disaster for me. The family and I visited relatives in Atlanta for a week and I started out good, and even Thanksgiving day went pretty well. But I had very little control over my food and as each day passed, I got a little more out of control.

But I thought I'd get home and get back into my routine. But then, I got home, and dh and I had an emotional discussion that gave me insomnia, which made the next day hard because I don't have a lot of control when I'm tired. And, I was stressed about something else (have to paint our rent house and get it ready to rent within a week.

For the last four days I seriously ate like crazy. Who knows how many calories! Maybe 3000 or more a day! I haven't counted like usual, but it has been horrible, emotional binging like crazy. I've been scared to even touch the scale, so I don't know how much I've gained. I'll weigh in tomorrow.

Today it stops (or I'll go crazy). I've calmed down, I'm writing down my cals again. I actually felt a sense of relief when I sat down this morning to my bowl of oatmeal, stevia, and blueberries. Its sort of becoming comfort food for me and I never liked oatmeal before!

Needless to say, this was/is a scary experience! I feel like I am on a roller coaster sometimes!

LOL, sorry for the huge post! Your blog is an inspiration for me!

Hi Jess,
How long have you been keeping a blog? I've been reading it for some time, but was wondering how it all got started.

This all started with a little static webpage I made to share my success with Friends and Family. I would update with the page with new info, and lose all the old information. I did not like losing the previous pages. But then my friend "Vigilant" suggested I switch to a blog!

My Original Blog is found at and is Full of ads and pop-ups. YUCK! I got sick of my readers being "spammed" so I moved over to blogger.

Slow but steady wins the race! Eat less, drink lots of water, don't feel deprived!! Exercise and lifting weights help a lot!! I have lost 145 lbs. so far!
