Sleepy Time

All is well in the Princess home. Human child is asleep in her room, furry chihuahua is asleep on the floor, non-furry chihuahua asleep under the covers, and Casey asleep there as well.

I've been really down lately. Pretty much about being overweight. Its not that bad, and it could be worse. But, this is the most I've ever weighed, and perception is everything. I do so well during the day eating fruit and protein and veggies...drinking my water and working out. Then comes the dreaded evening. I'm too tired and hubby is too tired and it is just way too easy to scarf down junk. Ooops. There goes my healthy eating choices for the day. Then after a few days of this I feel even more horrible about myself, and the cycle continues from there. This cycle must be extremely painful when you apply it to overindulgence in things that can kill you--like drugs or alcohol. I think I should turn my attitude around and be thankful that I don't have those problems. I don't have a problem at all really.

There are millions of people around the world that would trade their problems in for some weight to lose, or not looking picture perfect for Cancun.

Discipline. Its such a naugty word. How did I make it through college and law school and all that discipline needed to study, and I can't stop myself from a bag of chips when I get home from work!

hugs, love and chihuahua kisses

Don't beat yourself up! You have accomplished so much so please try to cheer up...continue with your diet but don't worry if you have an occasional lapse...just enjoy your trip to Cancun, ok? Oh, and when are you leaving? I will miss you but will know that you are having a fantastic time!!

Thanks for stopping by & yes, it really is sad for Steve's family!

I know it is hard to be disciplined, specially when it comes to food...and like you said: the evening at home! I would be happy with a tossed salad but I have two hungry men (husband and Mr18)and there goes a perfect diet day... have a happy wednesday!

I'm 35 pounds overweight. Again! I'd lost it all and was looking "hot" and then life, medications, etc. got in the way. I am starting my diet on Monday. I plan to eat healthfully and watch my portions and take the weight off slowly. I need to learn to eat.
I came from a home of junk food and so I do not know how to eat.

Thanks for the positive comments, guys. I'm usually a happy, chihuahua kisses filled blog. I'm not sure how I got so bummed.

Don't be hard on yourself about the weight. It is a tough battle, I am fighting it too.

First don't knock yourself on this! We are all in this boat together! I have found that removing all the bad snack helps. And for me substitution does work on the calories, maybe not the taste but if you continue to focus on the goal then it does make it better. I have found like you the night is the worst! We eat a later dinner and that is my big meal for the night. Then when I wander in the kitchen later I really try to anylyze why I think I am hungry! Am I? Or am I bored, tired, distracted, angry? All are reasons I eat at night! I have one really filling snack,(salad, or pita sandwich or rice cakes with cream cheese) around 9ish and that seems to help! Just keep trying and don't let it get you down! My kitty hugs and kisses go to you! Hope the girls don't get upset by the cat hairs!!

If you figure it out, would you let me know. :) I've struggled my entire life with my weight, so I understand how you feel. Some days are better than others, and it's hard to love yourself when you are unhappy. L, you are a beautiful woman inside and out. Seek Him and you will find your answers.

I know what you mean. I have absolutely no willpower!

Hey there. Sorry you are feeling down. But don't apologize. People who are always happy are even more boring than those who are always complaining! ...Of course, I doubt anyone ever accused you of being boring. Hope you perk up soon.

Hey there =) I've been reading your blog for awhile now, but just decided to comment.

(Agh...I just realized how creepy that sounds, sorry!)

Anyhow...I can sympathize! I find it's much easier to restrain myself from junk food while at work. As soon as I get home, I have access to a fridge and cupboard full of goodies.

A tip my doctor gave me recently...if you're ever feeling snacky-hungry, drink a glass of water instead. Sometimes our bodies mistaken hunger for thirst.

But stay strong sistah!

believe me, I know the feeling.

Just believe in yourself. DONT BUY THE CHIPS! And keep on trying - and no beating yourself up. You're awesome. Your hubby loves you. Your doggies love you :)

Those chips can come at you from nowhere! That is why it is best to have Chihuahuas standing by to help you get rid of temptations ;). It is ok to feel a bit down... especially if you are changing/watching your eating habits... it is just natural :)

Love, Oreo

I know what this feels like. I'm going through it right now. Every day, I try to make good choices for what I eat, but then I have two cups of coffee, a gazillion diet cokes, and perhaps even some tea! I know that if I could cut my caffeine down, I'd be golden, but I'm stuck in this habit of overindulgence. You're not alone in your fight, but I hope you do not give up.

I know I could tell you not to worry about Cancun or what you will look like, but I have a feeling, if you're anything like me, that you will still feel this way. Take heart in the fact that your self-worth is not defined by the scale nor is it defined by the shape of your clothes. It is simply, thankfully, defined by you.
