So, today marks my one-year anniversary on FitDay! Whew! When I started, I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. I remember a friend (a casual user of the site) had mentioned it to me, and I thought, "Oh, I'll see what that's all about." I had no real intention of starting a 'weight-loss program' or anything, I just thought I'd put some food in the log and see what it said. Here I am, a year later and minus almost 37 lbs (although probably more like over 40 lbs, if you count from my highest weight recorded a couple months before FitDay.) Anyway, on one hand, I wish I had gotten farther in this year, and probably 'should' have been able to, but I realized what worked for me was not setting goals that are very strict, because I had a tendency to fall off the wagon at the first sign of failure. I think I've gotten over that maybe a little. Additionally, sometimes life gets in the way and you have to take a break - I got my insulin pump in the middle of March, and basically didn't lose a pound between then and the beginning of June, so I could focus on that. Anyway, just wanted to mark the date, and say a HUGE thank you to you guys - I really mean it when I say that without you all, I wouldn't have lost 5 lbs.
Yesterday was a total, disastrous fail for me. I absolutely cannot have buffet-type foods in the house. I don't think that I've eaten a single, healthy thing since Friday. Sent 4 boxes of food to my husbands bank yesterday for their lunch, daughter took 2 platters of sweets to work yesterday (a restaurant, which is kind of funny...) and I still have some left.
Today, I promise to do better. Now that I have room in the fridge, I have to restock on fresh fruits and veggies.
Lots of errands to run that can't wait and we are having really severe thunderstorms today. (Wind gusts between 50-70 mph are predicted.) Should be interesting! (Live dangerously... run with scissors, I always say! )
Have a wonderful day and I hope it's sunny and dry wherever you are!
I think its safe to say that I fell off the wagon. crap.
Oh well its time to suck it up. I did well yesterday and went to bed starving. It will take a few days to get my body back into routine after going away to Halifax for a few days. All we did was eat out at restaurants - it was nice to get away though. I will try to think more positively for the remainder of the week but feeling pretty poopy right now.
Hope everyone is well!

I have only been able to browse the responses. I hope to be able to read and respond to more posts. To say that things have been stressful and crazy does not even begin to decribe things here. But I took what I hope are some positive steps (see goal 5) and I am hoping, praying for the best.
