YESTERDAY: NO ROOT CANAL and a offical CROWNING IN a couple weeks..TODAY: SCALE NEWS..

So the solution to the question and the question being my mother... simply there is no solution to her behavior now.. Right now.. I have to turn the this and focus on me. I have had a good eating week and non exercising week. We might go for a walk tonight.. I am hoping on this, although it does look stormy out. .
Yay Honi no replay or dejavue of last summer.. NO ROOT CANAL FOR NOW!.. my dentist put in a filling in the second tooth.. and preped the back tooth for its corination.. I had to have two shots though so my jaw is kinda achey right now but otherwise I am in good shape..
On the scale front:

STATS
STARTING WEIGHT: 190.4
LAST WEEK'S WEIGHT : 186.8
CURRENT WEIGHT : 185.6
TOTAL LOSS :1.2
Steve just said this is so slow.. and I agree it has taken me 4 weeks to lose 4.8 pounds.. shesh.. but I guess its going in the right direction.. so thats what matters.. a pound a week.. 52 pounds a year.. so thats okay..
AS USUAL I AM CHANGING MY PLANS I DO NOT THINK I AM GOING TO LIMIT MY WEB WANDERINGS TO WEDNESDAY .. AS I FIND STUFF.. YOU KNOW ME I JUST GOTTA SHARE... SO TAKE A PEEK:
OPRAH DOES ANOTHER DIET ***more power to her.. she can try everything will all of her help etc.. but the truth is.. and each of us knows that singular truth.. that it is really about eating 3 healthy meals a day .. a couple of snacks and exercising.. old fashioned common sense.. it is slow.. it is frustrating.. but it is the best way.. not that I am plugging WW because I am on it.. but I want for nothing when it comes to eating.. I vary my menu plan.. so there is nothing I really miss.. THE ONLY THING I AM NOT GOOD AT IS EXERCISING>> I EVEN HAVE THE WATER THING DOWN...Eliminating certain food groups is not the way to lose weight.. I know .. I know what you are thinking I have business saying that.. look at me .. I am no model of health.. nor a diet guru. Yet to me, in the long run eating in moderation and PORTION CONTROL and Exercising just seems to make the most sense.. When you cut out food groups unless it is medically necessary .. your biggest cravings fall into that food group.. Done it.. Know it.. and wishing her the best....
WELL HAVE A VERY HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND !
WISH ME WELL
WISH YOU WELL TOO!

Slow and steady wins the race. Forget how much you lose each week. Focus on the fact that your mantra has continued to preach portions and a common sense approach to things.

Here's to NO root canal! I HATE the dentist. I'm glad you were able to dodge that bullet!

I hope you and Steve will find some time to take a ride on the motorcycle this weekend. Get away from the everyday drudgery!

The scale is moving in the right direction Honi, yes it takes time but good things are worth waiting for. Just look at how long you waited for the right husband to come along, he was worth the wait and so will your weight loss.

Glad the tooth thing is no worse.

Who won the race, the hare or the tortoise?

You have a good attitude and that makes you a winner.

Whew! I'm so glad you avoided the route canal!

What works for you is the same thing that has worked for me. I think it will help us in the long term.

I'm really admiring your positive attitude! :)

Slow and Steady TOTALLY wins the race. ;) You're doing awesome! My eating habits haven't sucked lately, but I really suck at the water thang. hrrrmmmmph.

Happy Long Weekend, girlie!

Everyone is different and here's to a celebration of those differences! We all have a path to walk and only we can walk it. I know that when I eat carbs, all I want are more carbs and more carbs. I cannot balance it with some protein and some sugar. For me, I need to avoid the carbs as much as possible. If I eat enough protein, I have no carb cravings. For me, exercise is going to be my new "craving." I find that if I do not get my heart rate up then I am not feeling as well that day. Best wishes to you feeling well and motivated. Live as well as you can and let the rest follow.

YAY for you all around!!! :)

I agree with you on the portions. As I found a saying over at Shaping My Way, http://shapingmyway.blogspot.com/2008/04/shut-up.html, "Eat Smart. Move With Purpose." I so love this statement! So I encourage you and everyone this weekend to eat smart and move with purpose. Honi you have come a long ways and I am very happy for and with you! Have a great Memorial Day weekend! :)
