OK am back! Well weighed in last night -- no gain but no loss either. I should of known as this week wasn't terribly good, but I thought it wasn't horribly bad either -- but whatever. Good result for a success next week!

I hit the grocery and got my eats for this week....and today has been great so far! I have been logging my food and will post it tomm on here. I also am going to start logging on the weekend as well, as that is my serious downfall. I am going to see my sister so prob will be some eating out -- but can make good choices even while eating out right!!?? YES! Christy posted about eating out and making good choices and mentioned me on her video...heeee that was exciting!

Sorry again for the whole link and not a cool click thru thing, I'll figure that out one of these days!

She mentioned I have some medical issues, and yes I do...I have MS (multiple sclerosis) -- I don't know if I have mentioned it on here before or not (or maybe one of the OLD posts I made private) -- I don't feel like looking right now to check! hee But I was diagnosed almost 2 years ago -- I was having some issues w/ my leg which turned into barely able to walk, I went to the hospital and they admitted me -- went thru some tests and viola I was diagnosed! I had never had anything wrong w/ me nor ever been to a hospital --- very scary!! My leg got better and today looking at me you would never know. balance is bad, memory horrible (so forgive my if I repeat myself on here! ha) and at times my legs feel "weird" is the best way to describe it! Plus I get tired easily. Soooo -- for my health I have got to lose weight...there are claims that a better diet can help w/ MS -- lessen your symptoms and also without the weight on me I'm sure I won't tire as easy too. So what better motivation do I need?? It really makes me upset and mad to know my health depends on it and yet I continue to not do the things I need to do.

Ugggh! But am trying some new things -- posting, reading blogs and developing some friendships on here to be accountable, planning and attending WW. So -- this week my goals:

-- Log my food for all 7 days
-- Make good choices while eating out this weekend
-- Plan my meals for week (have wed-fri done, need to do for sat-tues)

Those are my simple goals for this week. My main one is logging my food all week. Next weeks goals will involve some exercise. I've GOT to start incorporating that in my life. My WW leader is doing a virtual on line boot camp. I tried the link I wrote down but it's not working so have an email into her to find out what it is. I think that will help too -- and should be fun!

Ok am off, better get to working -- hope ya'll are having a good week!

    Hi, Christy!

    Just had to leave a post about the MS - that sucks! My dad was diagnosed with MS (primary progressive) about 18 years ago, with very similar problems. It started with his leg, too. He also has the memory problems and everything else! In the last 2 years he got serious about dropping the weight and really changed the way he eats. He ended up losing about 65 pounds and hit his goal weight. Obviously it didn't reverse what's already happened, but he did say he feels light years better than he did before, with respect to the MS.

    I noticed one of your goals is doing well while eating out this weekend - that's my weak point! Once I get there I just feel like I need to indulge! Anyways, you can do it! You just have to focus on doing the next right thing, whatever it is in that moment, ya know?

    OK, I feel like I've gone on forever, but I just wanted to give you some positive thoughts!
