I am trying to become the best me I can and shed the weight that's protected me forever. I'm a single mother to a beautiful son. I was banded on 9/8/10 and my band is named Sasha...Ms. Fierce if you nasty!
Quick post because I should be in bed by now. I was watching this show called Heavy that comes and A&E and this woman says that her one of main goals is to be able to run and play with her grandkids. The nutritionist took them into a grocery store and had them look at some of the things they would normally pick up. The woman said "I've been choosing food over my grandkids" and I thought wow, how many things in my life have I put food above. Just life in general when you get this big your weight interferes with everything, it dictates how you live your life completely. I have robbed my son of many things in his childhood and I have missed out on so many things that I truly wanted to do, but I chose food instead. The thought that I have chose food over my son that I love more than anything is the world makes me sad, but it also makes me motivated. It is not too late...and I am going to make this happen. I owe it to him and more importantly to myself.
My sister works for A!r Canada and they serve (at least they use to, not sure now) these little cookies on their flights that I love. They aren't too sweet but they are delish to me and most importantly I recognize everything on the short list of ingredients. Well now that I'm trying to stop lying to myself and get my eating back on track with a more protein centered diet, I am trying to limit snacking. Well, it is also that lovely time of the month where my craving for sweets is at it's peak. Well W*lgreens the drug store sells these cookies and I knew they sold them in a pack of 32 but they also sell them where the cookies are pre-packaged in sets of 2 (built in portion control) so that's what I bought and they hit the spot when I need some sweetness. 2 cookies are 72 calories...in the words of Charlie Sheen...DUH...WINNING! I thought I'd share this Belgium made goodness with my friends!
P.S. I have really stepped my water game up big time, but if I have to keep going to the funky bathroom here it work that kinda takes away the pride I feel for getting my water in. This building is fairly new but apparently they didnt cap some sewer line under the building so the first floor women's bathroom has a distinct funk about it at all times.
I can't believe it has been 6 months, I can't believe I'm so stuck in one place, I've changed strategies this week so hopefully I can see some movement in the scale who for the record is no longer my friend. But I promised pics a while back so here they are although no noticeable difference can be seen from my last pics, but I can see a difference since some of my heaviest times especially in my face (of course).
