down 6 pounds in a month

I have had tummy problems for YEARS.  and back problems.  and lack of energy problems.  After being sick again beginning of this month I finally said fuck it and quit soda.  Lots of water every day.  No more bad fast food and started walking just this weekend (really helped to loosen up my back).  And my god did I sleep good each night. 

I got to the point where I was scared to eat.  I can't live in fear anymore, of my own body.  And when I do feel good, and start eating crap again it's like I forget how shitty I felt just days before.  I have been through this cycle so many times.  I've probably posted that I quit soda and fast food before. 


Have I really been this dumb for 45 years???!  Guess so...

So yeah, down 6 pounds already.  Not starving myself.  Not really changing what I eat at home.  I keep one can of 7up out to remind me not to drink it. That if I have one soda, I'll want another and another.  There is always something that can replace that taste or at least distract me.  And then I'm good to go

I just don't want to feel like crap.  I don't want to be so excited over having ONE good day where nothing hurts when I should consistently have good days.

head wrap

Took forever, but turned out cute.  Will be donating these to cancer centers.

more fishing and crafting this weekend

Co-worker had a cocktails and crafting party Saturday.  I decided on etching glass for my craft   Turned out too cute!

More fishing this weekend...

Afterwards drove around Lyons/Boulder area and saw the some of the devastation from the flooding we had last year...watching it on the news and then actually going to see the "results" of the flood is completely different.  Part of the area is where my boyfriend grew up.  Made me a little sick to my stomach.

a taste of warm weather

which meant getting out the poles and doing a little fishing - no one around the lake caught anything, but that was okay - felt great just to be out in the sun!

st patrick's day hats

I belong to a site called wish upon a hero - you can wish for anything, and of course you can grant wishes... I just granted a wish for a family that wanted some st patrick's day hats.  I used my bear from 6th grade as my hat model ;)
