A New Day and A New Attitude

I had to weigh this morning... just to see. Today's weight, 243. Down by 2 pounds from yesterday.
New Me at sent me the best link yesterday. Thank you for that. I really needed it. It explained how the body's weight fluctuates and that we really shouldn't worry about what the scale says. It has alot of interesting information in it. I suggest that you read it if you get the chance. You can find it at
It's worth the read. There are alot more things to be found on that website, I just haven't had a chance to read them yet, but I'm going to bet that it is good useful information.

So I feel a bit better about life today. I am going to start writing down what I eat and how many calories are in each thing, that way I will have more of an exact count. Also, I am going to have some peace and quiet more often in the evenings. I think part of my problem is chaos. It's not that my house is chaotic, it's noisy. I don't like noise. I like quiet. My husband, on the other hand, must have noise. He's the guy that turns on the t.v. as soon as he gets up in the morning and as soon as he gets home in the evening. The worst part is, he will come into the bedroom (where I'm sitting quietly) and turn the t.v. on and leave the room. DRIVES ME CRAZY! I really feel like this added noise adds stress to my evenings causing me to eta more. I had a quiet day yesterday here at home and I only had 977 calories for the day. It was soooo nice to have a peaceful day. So how are my evenings going to become more quiet? I don't know yet. My husband and I are working on that. But I do know that it will get better.

So I am off to work on Labor Day. That's ok, though. I only have a couple of people to see this morning and then I get to come back home. I will see one more this evening too. I will have the emergency phone though and if it rings, I will have to go back to work, but other than that, it's not like really working today.

Thanks for reading... Hope you have a wonderful day!


  1. I've had to get back to writing down what I eat, too. I really lost focus over the weekend, but today I added a daily food diary to my blog. I think it will happy.

    I agree with you about noise. I much prefer a quiet, relaxed atmosphere in my home. I only like the TV on if I am actually watching it. My hubby will turn it on, watch it for a bit, then leave the living room to come downstairs to the office to play on the computer. The sound travels and I can hear that TV all over my house. Drives me crazy!

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. LOL...Love this post my friend and very good information...i like the quite too and nooise is just that...a bunch of great job on the loss you are on your way baby!!

  3. A food diary is a great way to help keep you accountable. The very act of writing it down does magical things even if you have to estimate your calories. A food diary has always been my secret weapon. You can do it!
