This Lady Loser

Well friends, here I am again. Let me make a small confession and ask your forgiveness for a moment. Humor  me if you can.

My oldest son graduated college and my middle daughter high school. The nest is becoming emptier by the year. Life is exciting and although nostalgically sad, I am so happy and proud my children are good kids. They are kind kids with compassion and a zeal for life.

I let myself go yet again. Now, those of you who struggle with weightless can relate. Sometimes it is just hard. It's not that we stop thinning about being fat. For those of you who like me have been heavy you know, too often that insecurity and self defeat enters into many moments in every day. We cannot go to eat without fear of people watching, worrying if we will fit in a booth, not to mention the agonizing clothes shopping. Being fat is no picnic and definitely no walk in the park.

In truth I blame almost everything on my weight. People do not like me because I am fat. I do not get the job because I am fat. Life becomes a cycle of fat, fat, fat. We dream of the day we will be thin. We imagine ourselves thin. It seems at times all of life will resume a happy and perfect pace if we could be thin. Relationships will heal, people will like us, and so on.

So here I begin again. But let me assure you friends. It is not about what we think of ourselves. It is not about how we present ourselves to others. It is important to find that inner peace and simply begin again with some goals in mind.

1. I want to be healthy and live long.
2. I want to feel energetic and get rid of knee and back pain.
3. I want to honor my Lord with my care for my body. Ok, as I write this I would replace 3 with 1.

So, friends…here I go again. Don't give up on me because I have not given up on myself or you! Here is to our health!

Still Struggling to Be a Lady Loser


This is breakfast and lunch. Poached eggs, avocado and lunch was grilled chicken, black beans, chick peas, fresh mushroom, carrot, tomato and spicy ranch dressing. 

Let me tell you friends Gluten free is harder than I thought it would be. This morning breakfast let me feeling lightheaded and a bit weak. Same as yesterday. Today's salad lunch was energizing and I started feeling a little better. 

I need advice and input no Gluten free living. Please please comment below.

What has your background with weightless programs been. I have tried Weight Watchers. I am thinking of joining Nutrisystem. What feedback can you offer me friends. Going it alone has been so hard. I still have 3-4 of my 5 kids at home each day. Cooking and meals for them and dieting for myself is hard. Of course I prepare healthier meals, but they have junk and if it is not here they go and get it. I need some support and ideas. I am seriously thinning of trying Nutrisystem. What do you all think?

This Lady Loser

Happy New Year once again friends. What a whirlwind it has been so far. 13 days into the New Year and I am struggling with sticking to my resolution to get healthy and fit. I mean seriously it is on my mind night and day every day, but it seems I rock off to a great start every morning and then small like a snowball as the hour of 4:00 pm encroaches I begin to lose it. It starts slow, but as the evening begins to dawn I am seriously rolling off the path and find myself lost in the forest of weightless failure yet once again. Help friends. I need tips and ideas!

This Lady Loser in the New Year: A New Focus

You are as old as you feel. Although your genes play an important roll in the agin process, you are not preprogrammed to die. According to Mehmet Oz genes rely on energy which is in short supply for most of us today. The time and energy your body use for one purpose mean a short supply for another. The energy spent fighting off disease mean less energy for a healthful function of cells. The latest answer to increasing lifespan, calorie restriction. This calorie restriction will help genes redirect the energy they spend to maintenance and repair of cells. A 40% calorie restriction can lead to celling cells into maintenance which means once thing friends, healthy longer life in a more youthful body. Whent he rate of cell repair found in the maintenance equals the rate of cell damage due to unhealthy living the aging process stops according to scientists. To increase the rate of cell repair there are key thins one can do:

1. Eat right - more lean protein less sugar producing cards such as bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice.
2. Get rest - with 7-8 hours of sleep your pituitary is able to increase the level of growth hormone produced.
3. Take Omega 3- fatty acids/ DHA. These supplements deliver benefits to the brain, heart and immune system.
4. Breath Deep - stress relieving, awakening, and blood enriching. Breathing deeply enlivens the cells in the body.

Let's get ready to welcome 2014 with a newer and better approach to living. Let's stop aging in it's tracks!
