I’m not going to whine- too much anyway. Usually I’m feeling sorry for myself because I’m not a naturally thin person. I’m in good company. According to healthdata.org “Roughly two-thirds of adults, nearly 30% of children are overweight or obese” I say good company because we are not bad people, lazy people or stupid people. We just have not all decided to change our lifestyles.
That’s the truth – for me anyway. I am a naturally overweight person and I will always have to track and portion control what I eat. Forever. That is what this blog is about. Relinquishing apathy and accepting the truth that I have to control everything in order to stay at a healthy weight.
There it is. Acceptance and love. Love yourself – Love your body. It’s gotten you this far and thank goodness for that. Be kind to yourself. It’s not any easier when your angry with yourself. So pick being kind.
I am 2.4 pounds from my new revised updated edited goal. In January I gained 9 pounds sailing past my 2 pound goal weight margin and had to PAY. So because I knew it take me more than a few weeks to get 9 pounds off – I decided to bite the bullet and reset my goal down an additional 10 pounds. So I bought a monthly pass and set out to lose 19 pounds. By April I had lost 10 – that’s only 2.5 pounds a month and I was GOOD – I did not want to pay – I still don’t want to pay – I’m busting my butt so looking at 9 more pounds was getting really discouraging – I am tracking – measuring, weighting, eating the same points – same foods, same running/walking schedule- and the weight is coming off like molasses slow. So I adjusted my goal back up just 5 pounds. In April I had 5 pounds to go and now it is May 17 and I still have 2.4 to goal. At this rate it will be June before I get to goal – A whole 6 months. I lost 60 pounds in 9 months when I started in 2014. This is crazy.
Do you think I’m full of crap for complaining about having 15 pounds to lose? It’s all relative.
I am having so much fun. I tried Etsy a year ago and just couldn’t get my mind around how to keep it going, So I put it away and finally it was time to jump in again. I never stopped making my orgainzers for Weight Watchers members. I sold a lot of them to my Weight Watchers pals, and was encouraged to continue- I have just started learning how to promote on Pinterest and Instagram and Facebook.
I hope you will stop by my Etsy shop. Check out the sale I’m having! Use this code and you get a fabulous discount. THANKS2018 ( too cheeky?, I’m still learning).

Seriously- these have saved me from overeating many times. For the last month I’ve made 8 quart size mason jar salads a week – They are easy and depending how you layer them, they stay crisp and fresh for 7 days. You can add all sorts of protein to them but I’ve found I like to add the protein after I dump them in my bowl. I add what ever I have – boca burgers, hard boiled eggs, chicken, turkey, shrimp etc.
1 jar is 3 points. ENJOY
Here is my recipe;
First I make my own oil and vinegar dressing. It’s 1point per TB.
