Green Monster!




I finally tried one today!

I made mine with:

1 banana
1/3 cup plain, fat free yogurt
1 cup skim milk
1 cup spinach
some icecubes

I like these kinds of drinks ice, ice cold so I put in some ice cubes, it also made it nice and frothy. I didn't taste the spinach at all. This made a huge smoothie so I shared it with my 12 year old son. He loved it. He was skeptical at first - he said it was very green! But he also said he couldn't taste the spinach and he recommended strawberries for next time.

I had it as my snack before bed. I have diabetic medication I have to take before I go to bed and I have to take it with food, normally I have a glass of milk or a piece of toast, but I think this may be a new habit to get into. As well, it helps me get in some more milk and another serving of fruit and vegetables.

Saturday Catch Up

Good Saturday Morning (well almost afternoon!)

Once again the "boys" are still in bed. At this rate they will sleep their Summer away and it will be Fall in no time! Although I do have to admit I enjoy the peace and quiet and alone time every now and again.

Looking around me, the house is a mess. It's like this every Saturday morning - I'm not sure how it happens from Friday night to Saturday. Friday night it doesn't seem so bad but in the cold light of Saturday morning....it looks like a bomb hit.

Last night I went to a meetup with some WW on line women for the first time. I had never met them before and was a little nervous because I kind of just invited myself to their get together and they were very gracious and let me join in. I felt this way when I went to my first BookCrossing meeting as well, but I ended up meeting some amazing people who have become great friends over the last 5 years, so I figured I had nothing to lose but a few hours and so much to gain.

There were four of us, Miheartbreaks4u, NowMotivated and Kate1981 (from the WW Canada site). Really nice, funny women. We laughed alot and talked about a million things. I would definitely like to meet up with them again sometime.

I changed my Weigh In day from Sunday to Friday so my weigh in this week was 228.2 which is a total of 21.2 lbs so far. I am really just taking one day at a time and at each meal making the best choices I can and reminding myself that this is forever and forever is a long time so the sooner I make it a habit and not a chore, the easier it will be. I don't deprive myself of anything and just track it all. If I know I ate unhealthy food one day, I try to balance it with a really healthy day the next.

I have no real plans for this weekend - houseclean, laundry, return a mattress to Ikea, read (I haven't picked up a book since last weekend!), get out for a walk, enjoy some fresh air, meal plan for next week....I am sure the hours will fill themselves. Oh..I want to make some more pumpkin muffins from the Oh She Glows website as well as her flax seed power muffins. They look so delicious. At some point I have to work on fixing the boys computer - Windows won't load properly and I think I'm going to have to reformat and reload Windows - oh joy! Well I guess, for having no plans, I do have a pretty busy weekend ahead.

The 15 Week Challenge starts today and I'm very excited about it. I'm looking forward to the first challenge of the week, which I think may be rewriting a recipe to make it more healthy. It will be fun to decide which recipe I want to submit for the challenge, I do this all the time anyway, substituting butter/margarine with yogurt/applesauce and using Splenda for sugar, whole wheat flour for white flour etc. In my mind, healthy is not just lowe calories (or Points in the WW world) but also making it better fuel for our bodies to use and digest. My biggest concern as a diabetic is keeping my body out of insulin surges and the best way to do this is lots of fibre, small balanced meals and staying away from what I call "the whites".


White bread, white pasta, white flour, white sugar, white rice (with the exception of basmati which has a low glycemic load). I find when I do this about 80% of the time, I feel so much better: more energy, more alert and just ... lighter! And the pounds do come off easier as well..and my blood sugar is more balanced.

I guess the housecleaning fairy is not showing up any time soon...so I am off to start that!

Have a great weekend!

Mid-Week Wins

It's only Wednesday.

I've been reading some other blogs tonight and there seems to be an overwhelming sense of "it should be Friday" and I have to agree.

Although it is only Wednesday, I've had some great "wins" in this journey this week.

1. My boss bought Timbits and Ice Capps for our office on Monday and I had NO Timbits and a small Ice Capp made with milk and ate one of my pumpkin muffins while everyone chowed down on fat and sugar laden Timbits. I knew I couldn't have just one - it was actually easier to have none.

2. Same day, DeWalt Tools was at our site doing a promotion and ordered pizza for everyone. I had brought my lunch but I haven't learned to say no to pizza yet (my Italian half can hear it calling) so I had two very small slices with cheese and vegetables.

3. I was getting dressed this morning and two pairs of jeans I tried on were too big. Not loose, but silly big, like they didn't even sit at my waist and were falling down. (To clarify, I've only lost about 20 lbs so far but I am definitely losing inches from my waist and hips)

4. I ordered a roasted vegetable sandwich for lunch today and took one half of the bread off and just threw it out! Didn't even miss it.

5. I have been checking my blood sugar regularly, remembering to take all my meds and vitamins. Sounds easy? Not so much when the day gets crazy and time runs away from me.

Today I signed up for the Biggest Loser 15 week challenge. I am so excited to start this. It may be just what I need to keep focused all summer when everyone around me is eating ice cream and sipping on daiquiris!

Summer is here! Over 30C today and should be in the 30s all week. It's about time!!!

Something new and delicious!

Over the last few days I discovered this blog "Oh She Glows". The cool thing is that this woman lives in the Toronto area and runs a bakery out of her home. She has some amazing recipes posted but this one really caught my eye as I love pumpkin any time of the year.

Almost Nuttin Pumpkin Muffins

I made a batch tonight and the one I ate was delicious. I only made 12 huge muffins so they came out to three WW points each which is still a great low point snack. These are about the same size as coffee shop muffins so definitely worth the points. Dense, moist and full of pumpkin-y flavour. I'm packing one for a snack tomorrow at work. If you like pumpkin you must try these.

I forgot to post my Weigh In yesterday. I was down 1.6lbs which puts me at 230.2 lbs. I feel like I have been yo-yo-ing the same 2-3 lbs forever. I am hoping the end of June will see me back in the 220s and staying there this time...well until I get into the two-teens of course :)

Eating wise, I'm doing ok. Planning really is the key for me and I've been doing that pretty consistently.

Exercising..not so much. By the time I get home from work, cook dinner, clean up and get everything ready for the next day..I'm just exhausted. Den really used to do alot and now that I am doing it all, I am really noticing how much. I know that exercising would give me more energy..but how to find that energy in the first place? Just do it!!! (I think I've heard that somewhere before!)

I'm on a second medication for diabetes and my blood sugars have been amazing. I've cut way back on what I call "the whites" - white bread, white sugar, white flour, white rice and white pasta and it really does make a difference in how I feel and with my weight loss and blood sugars. Hopefully if I can keep this under control then I can go off the second medication.

Just finishing up my tea and then I'm off to bed, it seems by 10 these days I can barely keep my eyes open.

Father's Day

So today was an extra special Father's Day.

We almost lost my husband Dennis to a brain aneurysm 4 months ago and this would have been a very different day if that had been the case.

He is still recovering and today he wasn't feeling his best so we had a low key day, but we were all together, which is the most important thing, right?

Everyone, except me, slept in until almost noon. Then we went to lunch at one of our favourite weekend restaurants, The Texas Longhorn Cafe. Steak and eggs for breakfast :)

We came home, Den had a nap, the boys played Warhammer and then Iain bbq'ed burgers for dinner. I made chocolate pudding and Dream Whip topping for dessert. Now everyone is chilling in the living room doing their own thing, me on the computer, boys chatting, Den watching Iron Chef.

Life is good today.

15 Week Challenge

http://amysquesttoskinny.blogspot.com/2009/06/15-week-challege-preview.html

So...come on guys....check out this blog and sign up with me. We can be each others' cheering section!

Little Helpers

Ah...another morning to myself with everyone still asleep.

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there!

When the boys (inlcuding Den) get up I'll make pancakes and bacon and lattes for breakfast but for now, I am enjoying the peace and quiet again. It's still overcast and damp - I have never been so sick of rain! Hopefully later will be nice and we can go for a walk.

I was thinking this morning of little things that make this weight loss journey easier. Individually they are not big things, but each one makes the journey a bit easier, and that little bit of easier all adds up.

1. Daily Pill Container
I have so many pills and vitamins I am supposed to take and I always forget to take something. Rarely do I forget everything but somedays it will get to be 5 p.m. and I'll realise I've missed something I'm supposed to take with every meal, or something that should have been taken on an empty stomach. Keeping up with the vitamins and meds truly does make me feel better, this week alone is proof of that and when I feel better, I am more motivated, more energized, sleep better and am just a nicer person all around.

So I finally bought a round pill box, it has a little wedge for each day of the week. I've been filling it up on Sunday nights and putting it in my lunch bag which I always take to work, or leave on the dishwasher at home so its handy and then when I sit down to eat I just grab my little box instead of having to go through the cupboard to find the right bottle. It's a bit old-ladyish, but its working!

2. Carnation Instant Breakfast Mix
For me, this is the difference between having breakfast and not having breakfast. Although this isn't the most nutritious thing I could have for breakfast, it is a good substitute for nothing and I get some milk in as well.

3. Weight Watcher E-Tools
I can track my food and activity. It calculates my points for me or I can add a food using the information from the nutrition label. For about $22 a month, its a good tool for me and I would highly recommend it.

4. Reading Blogs
I find reading others' blogs is more helpful than even writing my own. When I'm tired or feeling disappointed or discouraged, I can always find someone who has someone who has something uplifting to say or who understands and I always feel better.

Non Scale Victories this Week

Short but very sweet post tonight!
  1. I can now do my bras up at the tightest hook.
  2. Someone I saw today for the first time in 6 months said "You've lost weight!"
  3. Capris that fit in April are now very loose.

Sex and the City and Carb Hangover

Good Morning ~

I am sure it is a "good" morning somewhere, just not here. Rainy and overcast for the third &*(*&^ day in a row. Did someone forget to tell Mother Nature it is almost the end of June in Toronto? Where is our sunshine?

Last night I spent with my my friends from work, the same women I went to Buffalo with last week. We had planned a Girls Night: Sex and the City movie, Chinese food and cheesecake. I didn't get home until almost 2 a.m. I feel old this morning.

We had a nice night. It began much later than planned as two of the women had to work late and we didn't end up all together at S's place until after 8 p.m. I had left work around 3 so I could go to Costco to pick up cheesecake and run a few errands. At 6 p.m. I was still sitting in Panera waiting to hear when S would be home and I was starving! So I had their Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad with Chicken. It was so good and very point friendly and filling!

When we finally got to S's, she had munchies and then we ordered Chinese food. By the time the Chinese food came I was starving again. I only had about 1/2 cup fried rice and 2 chicken balls and 1 slice of tiramisiu cheesecake but this morning I feel bloated and fuzzy headed (what I call a carb hangover). Today's plan is lots of water and fresh vegetables to detox my system.

Overall, I had a great evening. We laughed so hard! The movie was fun. I have never been a huge fan of the TV show but I have had a crush on Chris Noth since his early L&O days so it was a pleasure to watch him in the movie and I am a bit of sap for love stories.

Right now, everyone here is still in bed and all I can hear are the birds chirping outside and the fridge running :) Sometimes I forget how peaceful peace and quiet can be. Soon enough Den and the boys will be up and chaos will reign for the day. But for now, me and my Carnation Instant Breakfast are enjoying the calm.

I have no concrete plans on how to spend the day, but should give our bedroom a thorough clean and sort out stuff - we have way too much stuff. Oh, good thing I just remembered...I have a coffee date with a former coworker at 1. I swear I am losing my memory as I get older.

Eating what I want.

Hello everyone,

First off, I want to say I am in a much better frame of mind today than I have been in the last week or so. I have been eating and sleeping properly and it makes a world of difference!

I've also gotten in the breakfast habit again. Breakfast is the hardest meal for me. I just don't feel hungry when I wake up and I don't like to eat until I've been up a few hours. So I've reconquered that challenge with my Carnation Instant Breakfast. It's easy, quick and doesn't feel like "food" and doesn't leave me feeling like I've eaten - in a good way! If I blend it with ice and skim milk it tasts like a decadent chocolate milk shake. Then about 2 hours later I have a snack which is more like a breakfast. This has worked in the past and I know will work if I just stick to it.

Secondly, I've been planning meals, grocery shopping and cooking again - most important thing for me is to be organized, it makes me feel in control and gives me a better chance at success.

Oh...the junk food part. Today at work my coworkers went out for greasy burger and fries and we had leftover cookies after a meeting. I didn't go with them, I stayed at the office and ate my homemade tomato vegetable soup, which was delicious and I really enjoyed the quietness of being the only one in the trailer for an hour - sheer bliss! I also didn't eat any of the cookies. I wasn't hungry and they weren't "calling me" you know? I knew if I ate one, it would be just because they were there, if they weren't there I wouldn't think of having a cookie....and that wasn't a good enough excuse. If I had really wanted one, believe me, I would have indulged and just figured out how to count the points. There have been times in the past, and probably will be again, when I did eat them just because they were there and they were yummy.

So...although I was virtuous this afternoon, I did drive home wanting junk food. I had to stop at Costco on the way home and I avoided the snack bar, I just picked up a Coke Zero because I wanted something sweet and I find that Coke Zero is very sweet tasting so it satisfied my sweet tooth. When I got home, I made two chicken wieners on Smart Thins Hot Dog Buns with salsa and fried onions. I had it with a glass of my special lemonade (crushed ice, Real Lemon juice and a teaspoon of Splenda), its my new favourite drink and is helping me wean off of Diet Coke/Diet Pepsi. I was full, I probably could have left half of one of the hotdogs, but as usual, I was eating so fast that my brain didn't register full til about 10 minutes later. But it felt like a real junk food fix and definitely was worth the 11 points to satisfy that itch.

I know if I hadn't done that, I would have had a lower point dinner and then grazed all night before finally giving in to something junky i.e. chips, cookies, cheese and crackers etc. I still have 7 points left for the night and I usually have a skim milk latte and arrowroot cookies before I go to bed because I need to take diabetic medication before I go to bed and it has to be with food.

I think today I realised that I can eat what I want if I truly want it and I can make minor adjustments to meals to make them more WW friendly and use my points better.

Being "the fat girl".

It's not often I feel that way. I'm blessed with a high self esteem and a wonderful family and amazing friends who have always loved me and supported me, no matter what my size. I gained my weight as a young adult, early twenties. Until then I was a normal size, never "slim" or "skinny" but well proportioned and no rolls of fat!! Sometimes when I catch sight of myself in a window or in a mirror when I'm not expecting it, I am still surprised that the heavy woman staring back at me...is ME.

I rarely feel bad about the way I look. I'm blessed with good skin, healthy hair and I have to admit my best feature is my eyes. I think I have a good sense of humour and I am relatively intelligent. I've never felt "ugly" or "self loathing" the way I read some people describe in the WW forums or in some blogs I've read.

So this past weekend I went to Buffalo shopping with three women from work. These woman have come to be very special to me and I can already see, just after a few months, that we will be lifelong friends. I will call them S, A and Ad. We vary in age from Ad being 34 to A being 55. We all have a similar sense of humour and share our love of life and can laugh at ourselves. The only difference? You got it. S is size 4, A is size 2 and Ad is a curvy, but still slim because of her height, size 12. Me? Size 20. So you can imagine shopping with these women this weekend was slightly difficult. Everything they tried on looked amazing. Even if it was the wrong colour or style - everything fit. They would grab 10-15 things to take into the change room to try on and we'd have fashions shows. Me? I'd manage to find 2-3 things that I thought might look ok. Nothing looked amazing. Nothing made me feel beautiful. I know I'm being hard on myself. I have lots of gorgeous clothes and I look pretty good most of the time...but next to these "physically beautiful" women, I just looked fat. Cute, but fat.

Summertime clothes are particularly problematic for me. I have horrible upper arms. I call them "batwing" arms, all the Tee shirts the last few years have been with cap sleeves, showing off....upper arms...the one part of my body I really, really don't like. It's hard to find tee shirts that have real sleeves. Most of the time I wear 3/4 sleeves or I put a shrug or a shirt over a teeshirt or tank to cover my arms.

I'm also only 5' tall. Which means that the lovely "empire waist" style makes me look pregnant because it doesn't fall in the right place for my body. V-necks are cut too low, meaning I always have to wear tank tops or camisoles underneath. Pants never hang properly (even petites!) and the rise is always too long.

It was truly a day of hating how I look, hating how I felt about hating how I look....

There's no point to this post - just self pitying and I hope that typing it will make me get over it and move on to a new day.

Progress Picture - June 2009

June 2009 - about 225 lbs - pants are way too big, they were falling down!

Jun 12, 2009

Thoughts and stuff.

So yesterday I went to a bariatric surgery class.

Let me back up.

About a year ago..actually last June 20th, I went to see a bariatric surgeon on the advice of my doctor and endocrinologist. He said I was an excellent candidate for bariatric surgery (he recommended gastric bypass) and felt that I was at a point in my life where I am healthy enough and strong enough to minimize most of the risks associated with the surgery and to make the most of the success, i.e. young enough to still lose a significant amount of weight and healthy enough that I wouldn't get an infection or have trouble healing from the surgery. My BMI was borderline to be a candidate but he felt that with my history of diabetes and my parents history of strokes and hypertension, this was a good move for me.

Fast forward 4 days and I lost my job.

I was scheduled for the nutrition and psychological evaluations later in the year so I did those, then I was scheduled for a "class" to learn about the surgery and procedure as well as what life would be like after the surgery. I had to cancel this class because I was working temp at the time and couldn't afford to take the day off to attend. I rescheduled and it took over 9 months to get another appointment - yesterday.

Throughout this time, I had decided to "try one more time" to do it on my own and I was having great success until Den became ill and my life went to hell in a handbasket for a short time, I'm sort of getting back on track but finding it very diffuclt, I've not given up, I'm just not as dedicated as I was and it is showing. I've gained back about 5lbs that I fluctate up and down with over the course of the weeks, which isn't bad considering there was a time I would have put it all back on and then some.

Anyway, went to the appointment. I have to say that I was the smallest person there. I almost felt uncomfortable. There were men and women from their early twenties to about 60 or so and I think one gentleman said he was almost 500lbs.

We learned about the actual surgery, the risks, the possible complications and what life would be like after surgery. It was obvious to me that some people there thought this was going to be the magic bullet to fix their life and hadn't understood how much their life would change.

To be completely honest. I love food. I always have. I don't think I eat badly. I eat good food, but way too much of it and couple that with an underactive thyroid and diabetes and I have set myself up to be obese with a difficult road ahead to lose it. I know that as I lose weight, my diabetes will get better and my thyroid may or may not start working properly. I don't have high blood pressure or heart disease - yet. Both my parents had strokes at 55. My mom has always been a heavy smoker and is only about 20lbs over weight. My father has never smoked and has a normal body weight although he did develop diabetes after liver damage due to some drugs he was on after his stroke.

Where was I going with this? Honestly, my thoughts are so scattered. Do I want to do this? Do I want to investigate further?

The surgery is covered by our Provincial Health Plan so the wait is quite long about a year, unless I go to the US, but then the aftercare is problematic, I really don't want to drive over an hour each way after surgery for aftercare. The only major risks all my doctors see is the risk of surgery itself, anathesia and the risk of damage to my liver or intestines/bowels during the course of surgery. The statistic is about 1 in 200 for fatalities, but those people normally have underlying health issues that are exacerbated by the surgery, I'm not in that category. The deaths related to "accidents" during surgery is more like 1 in 500.

My endo put the risk in this perspective. I were to develop heart disease and had to have valve bypass or surgery to recover from a stroke, the risk would not be important because it would be saving my life and it wouldn't matter how sick I was at the time. Bariatric surgery will lower my risk of having to have one of those emergency surgeries and most likely, extend my life.

The surgeon said that not having the surgery means that I am at a 1 in 10 risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke.

The other issue that after what we have just gone through with Dennis - do I want to put my life at risk for a weight loss surgery? Is that being shallow and selfish? Do I want to put my family through another life/death situation knowing how much they were hurt and scared when Den was sick?

At this moment in time, I'm in a holding situation. Next week the surgeon's office will probably call me with a surgery date, like I said, about a year away. I can just leave the date hanging in the universe until about a month before and then make my decision. During that year or so I can continue on my own journey and see how far I get. I can change my mind at any point. I don't want to feel like I have that as an "escape route" because I don't think of it that way. After surgery I will be able to eat 1-2 oz of food at a time and may have intolerances to some of my favourite foods, chocolate, pasta, tomato sauce, oranges....

Like I said, I love food. I love eating, I love the nurturing nature of food, the comfort it gives, the love it shows and the love it shares. Its not just about "eating". It's about family and tradition. Its not just giving up the taste of chocolate or oranges, its giving up the ritual of chocolate cake for birthdays and homemade pasta on New Year's Eve.

I'm rambling. Like I said, my thoughts are everywhere on this.

Thoughts

It was a crazy weekend. I felt very ill and was in alot of pain with my back. I broke my tailbone over 2 years ago but it never healed properly and sometimes causes me alot of pain. I think driving to and from work for an hour each day and not sitting in a well made chair is contributing. I can't do anything about my commute but I am going to see about getting a better chair. In my job, I spend most of my day sitting and although it doesn't bother me during the day, I think cumulatively, the effect of a crappy, cheap chair is taking its toll on me.

I do get up every 45 min or so and walk around the trailer and I'm up several times an hour to the photocopier and filing cabinets so I'm not constantly in one position.

Eating wise, I did ok over the weekend, today was crap...when I don't feel well and don't get enough sleep, all reason goes out the window and I tend to undereat rather than overeat, but I don't eat "good" food. For example, all I ate all day was a bagel with butter around 9 a.m. and then an order of fries at noon. Then I came home and I had corn on the cob for dinner. Not alot of food all in all, but all high in "points" and low in nutrition.

I'm going to bed early tonight and hopefully will start anew tomorrow.

I've decided I"m not going to post my food journal every day any more. I used to do it because I needed somewhere to record it, but now I am using WW online, I don't need it in two places, so I'll use this blog to more record my thoughts and ideas than my food journal. It would be great if the WW site had a blogging option as well!

Our weather is still crappy. Hopefully summer will arrive at some point before Labour Day, but right now we seem to be experiencing a balmy and wet Spring. Nights are cold, sometimes at freezing or barely above, and days are dark and dreary. Hardly inspiring.

WW Food Tracker

Well, yesterday was an interesting day!

I started out meeting a friend for coffee after work and then we went to Buffalo to pick up something from Target and then had dinner at Red Robin.....so points were off the chart!

That's ok, I had a nice night out with great friends and I've not done anything like that since well before Den went into the hospital, it was a welcome change of pace and even more so since my friends drove!

Feeling a carb hangover today and definitely bloated from all the sodium, so lots of water on the menu for today.

I am now working downtown right by the lake so yesterday I went for a 15 min walk (baby steps!). I had a million excuses why I couldn't walk - didn't bring the right shoes, didn't have my ipod, it was too hot and on and on, finally, I just went outside and put one foot in front of the other. In summer sandals, rather than walking or running shoes, my feet didn't last long but 15 min is better than 0 minutes..and today I did bring my sneakers so I'll aim for 20-30 min at lunch today.
