March 28, 2018 - Wednesday of Holy Week
So many things have crossed my mind this morning.....clean, cook, don't binge, Brendie's retirement, being alone every day, and so on.  Watching Wuthering Heights brought on tears. Saw that movie so many times and it still gets to me emotionally.  I prayed, asked God to help me,  He will in his own time.   Reading an 1890 directory in South Bethlehem, found out that Irish people lived in my former area on Buttonwood St (Evans).  Not many other nationalities at that time.  I guess that's why Holy Infancy Church was always called the Irish church, they were the ones who lived on the south side at that time.  Keep me safe Lord.

Forgot to mention, read another book, yes one more book about how to manage eating by Dr Glen Livingston "Never Binge Again."  It's very interesting.  Is it just another to add to my list of failures?  Could be.  It's not what's written in the book, I must be the one to change things in my life.  Until that happens I will go on reading books and putting them on the shelf to collect dust.  Is that what I really want?  NO of course not.  I am one of many others who have a difficult time of it.  We all fall, get up and start over.  Keep trying and stop this insanity once and for all.  Hmmmm could it be an emotional disorder?  Good question, any answers out there?

3 Day Christmas Eating Plan

In SparkPeople's Beck group, we got an assignment to write down all the foods we expect to eat
for December 23, 24, 25, 2017.  Wow that's going to be interesting.  Will post my plan in SP.

I guess if you aren't a SP member you won't be able to see the posts...sorry.

Back to Beck

I know, I change too much.  This time I'm sticking it out forever.  The Anti-Inflammatory plan had too many food selections that made my stomach upset.  I have a sensitive one.  And if I took away all those I would be starving.  Maybe that's how their followers lose weight.  Just kidding!

I am in the process of reading and digesting Dr. Beck's Diet.  I am taking notes and re-read them every day.  This time around it's a very serious matter.

Be back in the near future.

It's been a while since I posted anything in here.  Too many other things to get done.  OK maybe it's an excuse.  The Beck Diet was a lost cause.  For some reason I lose interest and fall off the diet.  I do try but I fail over and over again.

I am beginning another food plan, the Anti-Inflammatory Diet from the famous Dr. Weil in Spark.  I read a lot of his books and never knew he had a diet plan for people like me who have inflammatory diseases and auto-immune issues.  Besides hypertension I also have psoriasis that drives me crazy, IBS that flares up once in a while, peripheral neuropathy, and God knows what else.  I need to lose weight big time.  I am not doing so good in fact I was eating more than normal....No more cookies!!!!

That's it for now.

The Diet Trap Solution by Dr. Judith Beck

Joined a group in SparkPeople called Beck Diet Solution based on her first book which I didn't read yet.  I will be learning day by day how to recognize when I am about to overeat and perhaps take another course of action.  It all seems so incredible to me but I am more than willing to try my best.  I have had this horrible habit for way too long.  Time to change!!

Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge

I finished the Challenge to curb a sweet tooth.  Yikes 22 days without eating sugary stuff.  I didn't think I could do it, but I did!!

Now I am beginning another challenge -- 30-Day Diabetes Weight-Loss Challenge!  I'm not a diabetic yet, but I am on the borderline my doctor tells me.  So, I have to get on the stick and start doing something about it NOW.

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I'm participating in a 21 day challenge to tame a sweet tooth in and so far I haven't eaten sweet stuff.  I don't like getting on the scale every day, once a month is good enough.

Starting Over

It's 20 days into the new year 2016 and I decided yesterday it was time to get real and begin eating the right kind of food again.  It seems I do this every couple of months.  Once I get comfortable with my eating plans I guess I give myself permission to eat everything.  I know I can't do that yet I do it.  There has to be something I can do to stay on the eating plan.  At 70 years of age you would think I found the answer to that.  But truthfully I haven't.

Another Year is Coming to an End

I read on Facebook that Yahoo, GMail accounts were hacked.  So what's new?
It's December 2013 -- soon the holy season will be here, then a New Year.  Looking
forward to all things happy and new.  I still need willingness big time to follow the
program, I'd like to be abstinent again.

2013 New Year

Another year rolled by so fast.  I forgot I had a blog here....duh!  Does anyone really want to expose their personal thoughts to the whole world?  Just check facebook and you'll find out the answer.  I gave up making New Year's resolutions until I finish doing what I promised to do last year.
