Mouth on Lockdown

Ok maybe that's a bit drastic but considering the trouble I had with my pants this morning,I'd say it's warranted.

I lost a little over 30 pounds a couple years ago. I did WW on-line and it worked great for me. I was on track for a very long time but the past 6-8 months...not so much. So, after my food p.o.r.n dinner on Friday, I am going back to WW.

Trouble is, last time I was helped with Lean Cuisine for lunches. Lean Cuisine is not exactly local or organic. I need to learn to cook healthier and with less fat (butter is my frenemy). I need to use less of a heavy hand with my olive oil pour and...since I am being honest...the ice cream must go. Ice cream has become more of a habit than anything. I am blaming summer on that last one.

I also need to exercise more. My morning doggie walks and weekly football are just not cutting it. Yoga helps tremendously but cannot cancel out ice cream, ya know? I actually felt my plantar fac... whatever....acting up. I think this was the final straw that convinced me I needed to make some changes...again. ;)

So I promise not to bore you with success stories. I may try to make you laugh at failures though so bear with me. Also, P will now have to eat the same things I do so he may be begging for food at your door. Don't feed him, he won't go away...trust me on this one.

WW is the ONLY thing that ever worked for me.

In the last two years I have given up, but if I was ever so inclined, I would try WW online again.

Good luck!

I know what you mean with butter. I could eat it by itself (sounds disgusting now I've written it down, maybe I'm cured!)

I LOVE ice cream ... and unfortunately, I LOVE potato chips too, and can't seem to avoid them when I'm eating a sandwich ... I need a good salty crunch, and pretzels just don't cut it ... sigh.

I have the same reationship with butter.
I should probably join your crusade but there is just so much good food out there.

I've replaced butter with Smart Balance light, i like it. I don't know if it does much, but i don't feel as guilty, oh and Turkey Hill makes a good frozen yogurt.

Hmm...I struggle with my will power towards weight loss and exercising. I LOVE running, what I don't love is motivating myself to go. And it seems like if you love something, you'd REALLY want to do it, but I struggle. Maybe your motivation will help get me moving...

I am the Queen of the YoYo Dieters. Seriously. My highest weight - twice in my life - was 221pounds. I have scaled the scales from my lowest of 133 - my mom kept asking me if I was anorexic and I told her no but she DIDN'T ask if I was bulimic, which I WAS. Oy. From the day of my hysterectomy on April 7th I have lost close to 30 pounds. Not the best way to lose weight. And it's been compounded by having my gall bladder taken out last week. BUT! It's given me a start - a PUSH start! - to get healthy and keep this weight off. I was far from 221 but I definitely wasn't Slim Jim, either. My gall bladder was very, very sick - I posted a photo of my gall stone on my blog...ya gotta see it if you haven't! Dear Hubby and I were talking last nite and he said he knows the hysterectomy was beyond my control but he wouldn't be surprised if my gall stone came from the years of abuse I've put my body thru trying to be thin. I am in 100 percent agreement with him. He told me if I ever let this all get out of control again he'll be very disappointed in me. So will I. I'm rootin' for ya, sister...but keep it SENSIBLE!!! Don't end up likeme.

If P makes it all the way over to my house and still hasn't been fed, I promise I will not feed him.

I will cheerfully add him to my collection of M.I.L.M.* and just do what comes naturally.

Hello. Good luck with all of that, and please keep us up to speed with progress. I weighed myself last week at my folks' house, though I don't know why as it has not changed in a decade.

Start running - you know you can do it!

Good luck with your new regime and farewell the butter.
