I think I like this GI diet a lot. It isnt hard and already I just feel better. I dont feel as gross or as bloated as I did before.
I did lose a couple pounds, but then we went to the in laws for 5 days which was very difficult. I was able to resist many things, but not every thing.

The walking has been difficult. I noticed after a few days of more activity that my leg (the one that was broken) started swelling where the incisions were. It began getting really painful, and very sensitive to the touch, so I decided to take it easy for a while because I don't want to injure myself again.

Once I get my house clean (which is a total disaster, and which I am taking a break from doing this second) my plan is to get back into doing some more activity. I am going to start with the Wii Fit, something that is not too strenuous on the leg and then work up to some more things. :)

It's Been A While

So its been a while since I have updated.... so here it is.

I have been going to the doctors a handful of times in the last couple months for some feminine issues. Along with these I also had my blood tested for a bunch of stuff.

One was diabetes. My levels were 6.1mmol/L which is pre-diabetic. I had them tested again and my result was 5.1. This is still ok but my doctor now wants test me every year to keep an eye on it.

Also I was diagnosed with PCOS. Having PCOS can make it hard to lose weight and insulin resistance (which means trouble metabolizing sugar).

So because of this my doctor has suggested following a GI diet. So far it has been great!!! It reminds me a lot of the old Core program on weight watchers, but not as many restrictions. I don't have to count a points or calories! Definitely less stressful. I bought a book about it and it has helped, and has given me some recipes to start off with, because sometimes the hardest part is to get started.

I have also made sure that every day I go and take my dog out for at least 1 walk. Our walks for now are about 20 minutes. That is about all my leg can handle right now, and I have made my dog lazy, so he cant take much more either for now (we will work on that together).

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Particularly these cookies........are EVIL!!!
The are SOOOOOO good they are evil.

I will choose these cookies over any other, and I have eaten too many of these this last week.

I have counted every single one, so I am being accountable, but they are so tempting (and there is another bag in the pantry)

Besides that I have been doing pretty good, tracking everything and making sure that my points are on track.
Tonight dinner was very yummy!!!
1 chicken breast
1 cup white rice
Mushroom soup sauce w extra mushrooms added
cooked carrots
1 cup milk
TOTAL: 13pts

Doing Well

What a difference planning my dinners have made to my eating. The last 2 days have been great! I think knowing what I am going to make for dinner ahead of time has actually made my eating during the day better.

I haven't been extra hungry or felt the need to snack on crap (except I did have some cookies last night but they were counted)

My only issue now that I have to work on is getting up at a decent time, so then I will actually eat lunch.
Today I did not have lunch which caused me to eat dinner at 6pm instead of 8pm, and this also means that I am sitting here with 15 points left. I am not going to try to make up those points today, because that seems like a waste to eat that many points in crap because I wont be super hungry later. Tomorrow I WILL make sure I have lunch, or at least some more snacks or fruit in the middle of the day to push my dinner later.

Yesterdays Dinner: BBQ steak, Caesar salad, baked potato (13pts)

Todays Dinner: Breaded, fried pork tenderloin chops with applesauce, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, sidekicks cheese pasta (14pts)

So after my little pitty fest yesterday, I decided I was going to FOCUS FOCUS FOCUS!!!
I have figured out what I am going to make for dinner for the next 8 days (including today), then I went to the grocery store and spent $130.00 on fruit, veggies and meat.

Now that I have a plan, I think I may do a lot better at this.
I even talked to my mom and she is going to come over every week and WI with me since she wants to lose weight too :)

Now I just have to plan my breakfasts and lunches

Utter Blob ---- Yup that's me!

So how many times do I have to re-commit before I actually take myself seriously and do it??? Any guesses? any insight? anything will help me at this point.

I sit here feeling sorry for myself, feeling like an utter blob, eating complete garbage and I don't do anything about it.

I really need to find motivation but it is really hard.
This was so much easier when I was doing it with someone else. Maybe I can try to get my mom to recommit with me since she talks about needing to lose weight again.

I really have no excuse. I am not working so I am home all day every day. I can get off of my lazy ass and do something but I just don't. I no longer have any physical restrictions either (well there are some things I still can't do yet, but not because the doctor said I cant, just that my leg doesn't have full motion)

I just need someone to come here and kick me in the ass!
Any takers?
