wow! where did 2008 go?

Posted by: billie In: blogging helps

My sleeping late is making the days go even faster. I have got to get back on a normal sleep schedule. That is one of the things on my list of to-dos for the new year.  They say that getting a decent night’s sleep helps with hunger control and weight loss. My high protein plan […]

focusing on the protein now

Posted by: billie In: blogging helps

I think that making sure i am getting plenty of lean protein with each meal and snack is making a difference.  Those damn empty carbs just make me go crazy. I’m not necessarily a big fan of the high protein diets for the long term.  I mean sure i lose weight pretty quick right off […]

last night i had a little incident…

The crime is: neglecting one’s own hopes and goals in pursuit of self-sabotage in the form of total disregard to the opportunity to exercise in the favor of an all evening binge on sweets such as ambrosia, 8 hershey’s chocolate bells, 2 pc fudge, more ambrosia, a few nuts, 4 more chocolate bells and a […]

Posted by: billie In: blogging helps

I hate being sick, i’m so glad it only happens about once a year.  I’m also glad my husband and daughter went with me to the bank and grocery store today, i was a zombie by the time we were finished.  Then i came home and laid up in my bed and watched the most […]

I woke up really sick today.  I just feel awful.  I did manage to weigh myself and i was down to 188.  I guess coughing burns a lot of calories.  So, since i am down in weight, i am modifying my mini-goal to losing 8 lbs in the next 3 weeks. I also want to […]

Merry Christmas!

Posted by: billie In: blogging helps

We had a nice family day at my house today.  It is strange but nice to have my husband at home all day.  I still feel sickly, but i am not letting it get me down too bad.  I have eaten all day.  I don’t know who these people are who don’t eat when they […]
