Day 29 and losing momentum

Today is Day 29 and I feel as if I'm losing the zeal I had when I started on the 10th of January.  I was pretty focused on my health then. It is just that it is so frustrating staying on target when I feel that it is not doing any good.  The meds are obviously going to put the weight on.  So why am I being so strict.  Come the 10th of this month I will be able to go full force strong again because I will be able to eat more.  I had low carb tortillas yesterday with peppered chicken bacon and lettuce tomato and avocado.  All I could eat was one and I was stuffed.  I have to figure out how I can eat more.

I will be so glad when I and others can physically see progress on my body.  I'm getting super frustrated and I don't want to give up but I know how I am.  I know I need to do this for myself and my daughter.

Day 28 and had some struggles

This weekend was pretty difficult for me.  On Friday I ate quite a bit of mexican food.  I had a burrito and that shell alone is 20 grams.  But that was all I had for the rest of the day.  But I felt incredibly guilty for it.  It had no rice no beans just meat and pico de gallo.  The funny part is that it wasn't even that good to me.  Saturday I did pretty good I had mostly protein a few carbs.  I had Chorizo and egg with low carb tortillas and for dinner I had pork roast. 
Now Super Bowl Sunday was a large struggle for me and my daughter.  We went to a super bowl party and thank goodness there was food there we could eat.  But the food we couldn't eat taunted us big time.  The only way I think we made it through is that I promised her when we left we would go to the store and by us low carb ice cream.  And that is what we did.

Nevertheless it was a struggle for us both but together we made it through.  We probably overdosed on the low carb sugar free junk but better sugar free than loads of sugar.  My plan is to get on as strict as I can this week and go back to my blogging everyday.  I have literally missed a couple of days and I think that blogging helps me stay focused.  I don't really know why I didn't blog on Saturday or Sunday for that matter.  Friday I got up and running for the most part.  I was super busy but I'm realizing that it is so important for me to blog everyday.

Day 24 and it's hard to believe

It's hard to believe that I have made it this far.  It's like each day I make it through that day I feel that it only makes me stronger.   I can't wait to start reporting days I exercise.  I think once I hit Day 30 is when I will be reporting 2 different days.  My daughter before she went to school told me that she worked out this morning.  The weight loss has motivated her even more which I'm so proud of her.  I told her she was totally making me feel like a slacker.  I was like you should have woke me up.  lol!!!

I want a camera so badly so me and Erica can take pictures of our foods .  I'm sure that will happen in all good time.

Nothing much to report other than that today I have so much work to do it is super overwhelming.

Yesterdays Intake

Day 23 and what a busy today has been

Today has been a busy day with doctors and MVD but it was a very cool day today because I had to wait in the waiting room to be seen and I was able to spend some really good time with my daughter.  It's pretty amazing how quickly our kids grow up and I Thank God for my daughter as she is growing up to be an incredible young woman.

So after the doctor and after the MVD (which my daughter was super sad because she failed her permit test) we decided to get weighed.  So I weigh in and I am 227 which is 1 pound less than last week which means that me shocking the hell out of my system is working.  I didn't go up and I loss one pound.  I wish it were more but I have to take into consideration that I am on these meds, which I refuse to stop taking.  My daughter weighs in and whoosh!!!  She has lost 13 pounds from the last time she weighed in which helped the sadness a little.  I'm so proud of her and the decision she made on not being fat tomorrow because it is obviously working.

Yesterdays Intake
small bowl of chorizo y huevos
2 chicken breast stir fried with pasilla chilis
Pork Sausage with egg

My Goals
After weighing in I have come to realize that while I am on these meds if I want to lose significantly I'm going to have to exercise.  That is all there is to it.
