Red face Hello

Okay, here I am, I was here in this forum quite awhile ago and didn't stick. My counselor adviced me to come back and blog.

I lost a lot of weight for over a year, and then i got really physically sick because the way I was eating caused me uric acid kidney stones. Then I had to have surgery. I was adivsed to quit eating the way I was and eat differently.

The nutritionist wanted me to eat foods that I know set me up for failure. Anyway, I finally so my kidney doctor and he has helped with a better food plan.

It is such a struggle to get my focus back. The evenings are the worst. As soon as my husband goes to bed. I am on a roll. When I was losing, I went to bed when he did and did not get back up. I know I need to do that again, but I don't sleep. I have had insomnia for years and it makes me crazy. As soon as the sun goes down, I am wide awake.

So here I am up late again and snacking. So instead of continuing to eat, I decided to blog instead.

I don't want to go back to the constant struggle, I want my sanity back.

This is my first step.

Phew, and thanks to anyone who listened.

One day at a time right?

Hi Debbie ! It is good to see you here. This really motivates me. I want to have a great month myself . Oct 1 a great day to begin. One day at a time with me also. I do think and act better when I eat and drink on plan also. I just love the postive feeling it gives me. I have had stuggles also but , I will never give up trying. I have to take care of me because no one else will . I plan to blog more myself . I am starting my food and exercise journal today and giving myself little smilely stickers on all my good days ! I find it easier to eat healthy in the fall and winter for me because I cook more at home . I have more hot soups and more time to google healthy recipes. Good Luck and keep coming here . You can do it !

Hi Debbie, and I understand what you mean about the struggle with night eating. That was a real battle for me too, but I have recently broken the habit, so I know you can too. Hang in there.
