New Country, New Job, New Home.....heck let's shoot for new body!

Hello All!

I am Deb. I live in the Yucatan, Mexico. 8 months ago my hubby and I moved here from Arizona. My husband owned a construction company for 20 years and alas the economy, as we all know, really beat us up. My husband is 49 and I am 44. We decided to re-invent ourselves. Kids are grown and doing their own thing so why not. My husband is a body builder and his true passion has always been excercise.. so we sent him back to school and he became a certified personal trainer. I obtained my teaching certificate to teach english as a sencond language. We sold everything we own and bought a little home in Merida, Mexico. He has done extremely well. He has several clients and actually started a school helping trainers here get certification. I just got hired on to Merida's largest language school and start teaching classes the end of March.

I have always struggled with weight but I am now at an all-time high. I started the HCG at 295 and I am now down to 290. So off we go...

I look forward to getting any advice .

Good luck to all!!!

  1. OK I am done pouting.

    I stopped posting for a few days because PMS had me on a weight rollercoaster and also an emotional rollercoaster. One night I broke down with a spoon and a bottle of peanut butter and said to hell with it. My husband walked in to me watching Supernanny pouting sucking on a peanut butter laden spoon, peanut butter on my knuckles (it was a costco super Jiff Jug) talking to the TV. I looked at him and grunted "wuth?" ....He reminded me that I should do what ever made me feel good... and ...

    Apparently that extra pound I lost missed it's buddies and decided to return. GRRRRRRRRRR..... So instead of finally hitting 20lb loss I am back down to 18 lbs loss. Somehow I need to break this pack mentality with these darn lbs.

    Fly away lbs.... leave the nest.... I have nurtured you now go find a new home...

    I lost the pound I gained plus one more this morning. I want so much to break the 20 lb mark!!! I was good yesterday but oh my I am actually having fantasies of baked goods! I am PMSing and I usually crave yummy stuff like sweets and pasteries. I ate my evening apple and imagined it was a boston creme pie. Then my hubby sat down next to me and ate bean dip and tortilla chips. I was bubbling with envy and then I fantasized shoving the apple core into his ear giving him apple lobotomy.

    I was doing so well... My hubby even gave me a stuffed monkey that has candy and I haven't toched the sweets (although if one can mentally absorb something I would have after staring at them for 10 mins with my super powers) but I put it up on a shelf and went on with protocol.

    Then he surprised me by picking me up in the evening and driving me to the beach. We went to our favorite restaurant there, Flamingos. Here in the Yucatan the tradition is lots of botanas (appetizer goodies) ...

  10. Down a pound

    by , February 10th, 2011 at 07:07 AM (New Country, New Job, New Home.....heck let's shoot for new body!)
    I am at 280 so I have lost 15 lbs. I know that is great but I am greedy...lol I wanted to wake up and lose another 3... sigh... Yes Deb a pound is good. My hubby reminds me that most ppl don't lose 15lbs in 2 months but well you know... I want the fat fairies to come and take more when I go to sleep.

    All have a good day
