I didn’t eat bad today maybe a few too many points. The instructions from the doctor said it would take my body 3 days to get back to normal. I am tracking my weight on my calendar I have fluctuated from 139.8 to 136 this week!!

on another note stop by Jody’s blog she is having an awesome give away … note the shameless plug to get me another entry Open-mouthed smile 

also I have been thinking about what a VERY popular blogger posted the other day… ok no throwing rotten tomatoes at me now… she said she is “done with dieting” I think if you have the perspective that you are “on a diet” you are going to always struggle… So I asked myself am I on a diet?

I don’t feel like I am. I feel like I eat differently than I used to. I eat differently than a lot of people, but the word “diet” to me seems like something you do, then you don’t do… something temporary, something you do to “fix yourself”

I know this is sounding weird but this is my life now, I eat low fat, minimal processed foods with the exception being an occasional frozen yogurt, but boxed processed foods I gave up…(kicking and screaming the entire way…. Wait... Is my popcorn considered a boxed, processed food... Hummmm Anne you were so right about certain stuff… Smile) but I don’t crave it any more.. also little to no wheat (yep Princess you are right about the gluten… I feel so much better off it)  and now I have started to really exercise, outside of my 20 minute daily treadmill and I feel AMAZING!!!

so I asked myself (after reading this certain bloggers comments) am I on a diet?

NO!! I have changed my lifestyle and my eating habits and I feel a million times better than I did 2 years ago… NO COMPARISON!! 

I understand we all need to come to that place where we are at peace with our bodies, and I feel like I am finally friends with mine

ok enough outta me tonight Smile see ya tomorrow blogger buds


  1. Totally agree with you on diets. I have done a bunch of them in my lifetime and always lost weight. Then I would end the diet and gain it all back. We cannot continue in our old eating patterns and expect anything other than what we had. What I had was an extra 40 to 50 pounds hanging around. Ugh!

  2. Thank you, your post just "clicked" for me about the not-dieting. Much appreciated!
