Wow, yesterday was such a great day and today was even better. Hubby got a call from the ear surgeon's office and he has an appointment for Wednesday afternoon, can't believe it.
I had an awesome food day yesterday but sure blew it big time today. Future DIL came into town to do some shopping and wanted to go for lunch. Well no problem right, something light and easy.....that's where the trouble started....she wanted Joey's Only. Now if I had only not let my old habits kick in and order the 3 piece fish and chips and to make it worse I was full half ways through but kept going and ate it all. This goes back to my childhood when eating out was a priviledge and if you ordered it, you ate it....all of it. One half of my brain was saying it is ok to stop and the other side was saying "don't you dare, you are not wasting food".
SkippyMom you are so right I should be able to lose with what I eat and you must have read my mind because I did ask the doc when I was there on Friday why my metabalism is so slow. He is running some thyroid tests and a few others with big names I can't pronounce so see if there is some type of chemical imbalance. He also thinks part of it maybe due to my IBS....I don't want to get too technical here....but when things do not work the way they are supposed to for days at a time the body has a tendancy to obsorb all of the fat and calories that would normally be eliminated. He put me on a high fibre supplement called PGX to see if that will help.

Someone mentioned that I should be doing this for me and not because of events in my life. I want you all to understand that I truly am doing this for me. I am simply using the events as a calendar to set goals for myself. They really have nothing to do with my wanting to get rid of the weight, I want to do that to be healthy so that I can enjoy these events more. They are simply motivators and small time lines so that I do not keep looking at the big picture and try to envision losing 130 pounds. It is much easier for me to look ahead 3 weeks and say I can get rid of 15 pounds as opposed to trying to set a date when I will lose 130.
I am so thankful for all of you, my online friends. You encourage me and you are always there for me and that means the world to me. Hugs to you all!!!!!
