Journey to ONEderland . .

  1. It's a STRUGGLE but I am hanging on. . .

    Blogging has been a way for me to journal the journey, keep myself on track, be accountable, get advice and maybe help someone else while talking about my journey. I dropped the ball while struggling to maintain stability in my whole life. P3 is always rough for me but it had been getting a lot better. Throw life into the mix and disaster feels like it is raining down on your head. Being stressed and depressed feels like you really are walking around with a cloud over your head and the cloud ...

  2. Balancing Act

    My weight is the same this morning. There is a lot of flaxseed in everything I am having.

I have been having a lot of protein and flax smoothies and just wondered if I overdid it a bit. I don't think I am ever going to fall in love with veggies even though I am trying . . . I will just keep doing it until it has become ...

  3. Reaching for balance . .

    "Steak Day down 2.4 lbs. Still over LIW but considering how bad I had let it slide I am ok with it coming back down slowly.

    It feels like I am in training for how to live the rest of my life. I am taking things easy, going easy on myself and trying to keep the stress levels low. I am working on my meals, trying to keep the protein and fat content high, carbs low and getting the hated veggies in. I will try to keep my meals balanced and eventually figure out what is best so ...

  4. Working on Melissa

    212.2 ~ Up 0.0 ~ = 6.8 Above LIW

    Hi and Happy Sunday to you all.

    I am still working on correcting what goes on in my mind and how I react to what life throws at me. Julie I read your blog and the link that all these books have are that you really have to fix your behaviors and your reactions to different situations. Until you correct this then we will always return to old habits and problems because our reactions and the consequences of ...

    Hi, I just wanted to post an update on where I am on the journey and to thank you for your support and company along the way. It is great reading about your progress and struggles because somewhere in there it helps me with all the things I am going through.

    Mon 5 - Mar - 2012

    212.4 ~ Down 1.2 ~Down Net 4.4 Since R4

    " Finally got past last LIW for last round. I hope to never be this close to the 213-215 range anymore. This is me passing you to never return again. Those numbers got in my head and wrecked me the last P3. I am working on not letting numbers get to me or better yet . . Learn to get the best of them instead of the other way around . . . I have to conquer P3 and ...

  7. Round Comparisons - Reality Check/ Therapy Session

    It is time for me to be my own Therapist again. I am taking at look at the realities of my situation.

    So I was going over my spreadsheet and looking at the trend for my rounds and I tend to do really well on the rounds, I just sucked at stabilizing in P3. I am not beating myself up over it . . I am just looking at the reality of my situation and giving myself some motivation for the future by looking at what is possible if I stick to my guns and just hang in there between rounds. ...
