My Journey

Life is too precious to be upset or unhappy with oneself. I appreciate all the beauty around me. I appreciate everything that I have. My children, My home but most of all my husband. I am worthy of having happiness. I am worthy of feeling good in my own skin. I am thankful for my health and the ability to change my destiny.
We are all deserving of a life filled with happiness, laughter and smiles. But without sorrow, would we know happiness? My journey is about acknowledging my choices, changing my direction and accepting happiness in all things.

  1. r5 p3 d1

    Here I am again. In a familiar place but felling different. I've been in P3 many times in the past. Not successful in my eyes- as I always gained back a minimum of 5 lbs above LIW. Some rounds I gained it all back. Each round I made mistakes, and I own up to making those mistakes. I've compiled a list of things that have worked for me and I am now trying to stick to that list.
    I'm eating whole foods. Staying away from processed foods would be best for me. I'm using olive oil, evoo, ...

  2. Another round week 7 done

    Last week I forgot to skip on my skip day-- so I had to change it from Sunday to Monday-- no big deal. It didn't affect my hunger or my weight loss. It was to be my last week on P2. It was a slow round, with no stalls. Very small losses in weeks 2,3,and 4.. but then nice losses in week 5. Week 6 losses were average. Tom was expected toward the end of week 6, but arrived a day late.. again, no biggie. But now that Tom is here- I am not losing anymore and in 2 days I enter P3. It doesn't look ...

  3. Another round week 6 done

    This past week I have had a total loss of 3.2 lbs. It's great to know that I can rebound and catch up with the average. Hopefully, the losses will continue my last week of vlcd. Feeling good and starting to see a difference in the way my clothes fit.
    Today the scale was teetering between 126.8 and 127.2-- it stuck at 127.2.. hopefully tomorrow it will drop to the lower. In the beginning of a round it seems overwhelming to have to be in P2 for over a month and half. The large quick ...

  4. experiments with OREO's and rats

    Interestingly enough when I was teaching yesterday, another teacher had given me a research paper that included a study about rats. The university of Connecticut produced the study.
    The rats were given an option of eating oreo's or sugar water- the rats chose the oreo's.
    Then the rats were given the option of having cocaine or morphine and the rats chose cocaine.
    And then the rats were given the choice of having oreo's or cocaine- and the rats chose the oreo's!!

  5. Another round week 5 done

    The week seemed as if there were no losses to be jumping up and down about. Until this morning, I had a 1 pound drop which gave me a loss of 2.2 this week. My weekly losses have been far below normal this round. It's my own fault for trying to tweak the protocol. I don't do well with tweaks-- the original protocol works best for me. When am I going to realize that and stop trying to tweak it?!?!
    I'm finally into the 120's-- by the skin of my teeth. lol

  6. Another round--week 4 done

    It doesn't seem like it's been a month. Although as I think back, the first 3 weeks dragged and I was constantly thinking about P3. But no more. I've settled into P2 thinking. I'm just hoping that the scale gets back on track and starts showing some more losses. For the past 2 weeks, I've only lost about 1.4 each week-- which is about 1/2 my norm. I am close to my lowest weight, but not close to goal. When I review my journal, I think I've been eating too many veggies. For the first time, ...
