I need to get on board, hold myself accountable and just get on with life.

It seems that my focus on losing weight and all my talk about self care has been just that for so long now.

I did some soul searching, thought about why WW and LA Weight Loss worked in the past and decided accountability is a big part of their program.

My weekly blogs will be a stream of consciousness that I can look back on to monitor where my head was at in addition to see where the scale went ...up or down.

The blogs stopped but the accountability has not because the buck stops here. I can't go another month, year without getting closer to my goals because quitting is not an option.

My Goals:

My goal is to turn back the clock by losing 100 lbs. I realize now that a quick fix will not do but rather a dedicated and concerted effort toward developing a new lifestyle is truly the answer.

It requires dedication and consistency and maybe being a little easier on myself. One of my biggest problems is turning one mistake into a binge which makes it harder to get back on track. I think Dr. Oz called it a U turn but I would say it's more like driving right back out of the ditch you dug.


My Program:

Had success with Weight Watchers way back in the day and does anyone remember LA Weight Loss. The one thing they both have in common is counting exchanges which to me is a simple way of keeping track of your macros which seems to be in vogue. I started intermittent fasting but found it limiting and soon as I feel deprived I go on and on with a world tour, never ending last supper. Now I figure 12 hours without eating is a fairly solid effort in giving my system a rest.



Personal Information:

Fresh start #970...new chapter is my constant mantra. They say that has something to do with being a Scorpio. Live in Calgary, Alberta Canada

Refer to myself as Babe as it is an old nickname from childhood that my dad had for me and I joke that to claim it you got to name it......let's hear it for a self fulfilling prophecy.


Other Information:

    Colette, thank you for your sweet message! I got home from the hospital two days ago and am continuing to recover at home. It's harder at home, though, because everywhere I look I see a job that needs to be done. However, my husband and daughter are helping me a LOT! I'm really surprised that they've both so completely stepped up to the plate. It's always been hard for me to accept help, but this time I'm sort of enjoying being waited on hand and foot!

    I hope you are doing well. How's the weather? It's still quite chilly over here in Japan. Take care.

    It's Friday once again, and time to get our check-up from the neck up so we can be ready to enjoy our weekend! I think you'll find that these jokes will be just what the doctor ordered to tickle your funny bone because they're really quite humerus.

    For those of you who are uncertain of the meanings of medical terms, I thought I'd provide a few I've managed to find and decipher for you.

    "Medical Terms for Dummies"

    Artery - the study of fine paintings

    Bacteria - the back door to the cafeteria

    Catscan - searching for the missing kitty

    Cauterize - managed to made eye contact with the nurse

    Enema - Not a friend

    Fester - quicker than someone else

    Fibula - a small white lie

    Nitrates - Rates of pay for working the night shift; normally more than the day rates

    Outpatient - a person who has fainted

    Urine - the opposite of "You're out!"

    Vitamin - What you do when friends stop by for a visit

    I hope these haven't been so upsetting that they've made you nauseous.
    If so, lay down, take two aspirin, and call your doctor in the morning.

    Enjoy your weekend!
