Day 56 February 25, 2011

I had to make a difficult choice recently and I was filled with guilt about making the decision. I thought of all the people who were depending on me and how I would feel if the roles were reversed. On the other hand I considered why I was making this decision- it was dangerous for me and could threaten everything I’ve been towards over the last two decades. I wasn’t willing to risk that.

I started to overeat-emotional eating. I’m learning that my food choices are not arbitrary, in many instances, I can pinpoint the circumstances that provoked my overeating. It is good to recognize the triggers. I keep learning more about myself as I walk this weight loss road.


Day 55 February 24, 2011


Good news!! With all the busy schedule issues I’ve had, today I weighed myself and I’ve lost 2 pounds!! All I’m doing is reducing my portions and trying to add a salad with my entree meals. I bought some fresh fruit and add it to my yogourt/oatmeal or breakfast item. And I visit the trainer once a week.Small changes but I’m encouraged that I’ve made a small step in the right direction. What changes have you guys made?


Day 54 February 23, 2011


I was looking at the topic for today’s Oprah Winfrey show and saw that Iyanla Vanzant would discuss recent events in her life. She’s had some hard times recently and she is being honest enough to discuss it with us. What strength and courage to bear your pain and shame so that we can listen and learn. For those who don’t know Iyanla is a life coach who teaches you how to live your best life. She was a featured guest on the Oprah show much like Dr Phil.

I think what I want to share from my perspective is just because you have a title that implies knowledge, it doesn’t mean that life won’t teach you a lesson or two. Sometimes the lessons are very public. Open your heart to learn from others without judgement. That’s a gift we’d all like to receive.
