it's not a diet it's an alive-it

Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2006
I suppose I need to buy a scale, Iíve never had one since I left home when I was 19. It was and has been denial. At first a scale wasnít something that was necessary. Then life happened and denial continued.

I can only tell you that Iíve kicked sugar. Iíve also been eating breakfast every single day. I always eat one of theseÖ

Old fashioned Oatmeal (not the microwave kindÖthatís not the healthiest for you)
Wheatena (has low GI rating and is filling)
Kashi cold cereal (this brand of food is one of the best out there)

If Iím running late in the morning for work I stop at Chick-fil-a and get two fruit cups and a small cup of coffee. This is suitable but not as filling as real cereal and usually Iím hungrier for lunch earlier than if I have oatmeal or wheatena.

Iíve also been taking my vitamins religiously and can actually feel myself lacking energy if I wait too long in the day to take them. Theyíve been great for my energy level.

I have NO idea how much Iíve lost and have decided to get myself a scale for Christmas. It will be my gift to myself so to speak because there really is no more denial. But at this point I am more focused on my overall health and will wait for a report from the doctor the first week in December regarding my weight and health.

I bought a slow cooker and have begun to make easy satisfying meals with lean meats and tons of veggies. Chicken and sweet potatoes are amazingly satisfying when cooked in a crockpot. Who knew?

Iíve been drinking water and adding a higher content of PH to the water with a liquid supplement. I drink water exclusively but have added in 1 measured cup of juice every few days to my diet. I just have to watch the juice intake because itís loaded with sugar, which really is ridicules. Why canít they just sell healthy real juice?

I have no idea how much weight I've lost I only know that shorts and pants that were tight two months ago can now be taken off without unzipping or unbuttoning them. That feels like progress if you ask me.

Iíve also been busy with class, yes finally back in class. It feels good. But of course, more stress back in my life. The book club is reading Wuthering Heights so Iím on Chapter 5 and so far itís slow moving. I think itíll pick up though, I have this strong feeling about it.

Thatís about all thatís been going onÖ..
