    yes, I know its a lofty goal........ but I know I can do it if I stay on course. Avoiding alcohol and sugar seem to be really big on my successes list. When I do both of those - and watch the overall calories, and move everyday - the weight comes off at a fairly steady pace. Its when I give in to the dessert or alcohol cravings that I find myself in a stall. I have 38 weeks to go -- thats a touch less than 1.5 pounds per week. I know its possible to do it -- might be tough at times, but its totally possible. I don't have quite 50 pounds to go - and likely I won't get under 140 as history tells me that seems to be my set adult weight --- this morning I was 183.6 so thats really 48.6 to my dream goal.......... 43.6 to my realistic goal. So, if you look at that way, 44 pounds in 38 weeks is pretty doable. I'm determined! And I feel confident that I will be able to keep the weight off now that I've been eating this way for so long. By my birthday it will be 20 months since I changed my diet to primal/paleo. I think its pretty much a part of me now. If I don't actually make it then I know I will be close - but I have to have a goal weight date set or I tend to do the mind game thing of "oh, this once won't hurt.......... " Those "onces" come far to often unless I can see a date on the calendar that I want to acheive my goal.

    Thanks! I'm gonna give it my best effort!

    Its o'dark thirty......... I woke up with aching legs and couldn't go back to sleep with hubby rattling the rafters with his snoring! I rubbed peppermint lotion on my legs and they are feeling better now, but my tummy is empty. I'm snacking on Almond Butter - but the cheesecake is sorely tempting me. I.WILL.NOT.GIVE.IN! cheesecake will NOT help me reach my goals! It will taste good for a few minutes, and then will cause hours of guilty and remorse for succumbing to it! And will postpone my joy of seeing the scales drop --- so, the cheesecake will stay in the freezer. AHHH.............. its feels good to win over the cravings.

    We talked a bit about our Feb. 5th wheel trip. Hubby wants to go down to the Redwood Forrest while we're down in Gold Beach. Its only an hours drive from where we are going to be "camping". I'm hoping there are some good trails to explore while we're down there too. I'm looking forward to doing more hiking this coming year.

    About Thanksgiving...... I sent out an email asking for a tentative head count --- saying we are trying to figure out seating for the group. So far a couple families have responded - but not the one in question. So, still don't know whats coming........

    I should try to go back to bed. Sometimes hubby stops snoring around 1 am............ I love that time of night! If I could just get him to lose about 25 pounds......... he doesn't snore very loudly when he is a lighter weight. But he seems resistant this time - like a defiant child. If I try to get him to take off a few pounds he rebels and eats all the junk food he can get his hands on! Big BABY!

    night all...........

    Samu66el........... seriously? I wish there was some way to get back at these people. Like find out what their email address is and send them 3000 messages every single day! GGGGRRRRRR!!!! Its so annoying!

    Okay.......... I a little happier this morning - 182.4 Back down to my lowest recorded primal weight. Thats was 3 weeks ago - so it took me 3 weeks to get off the weight gain caused by a weekend of rum and snacks. See, this is why I track. I can go back and look at my food logs when the scale went back up and I can see exactly what went in my mouth - cuz I write it all down. Tracking is important -- yes, annoying and time consuming -- but important so we can see where we are going wrong - and where we are going right. WRONG = rum, diet coke, sugar. RIGHT = staying with the program, eating "clean". I've had many days of RIGHT lately and it feels wonderful! And the scales are a direct reflection of what I'm doing. It doesn't seem matter if I walk or not - if I eat WRONG the scales go up. But if I walk and eat right - the scales go down. Simple concept - yet sometimes so hard to do!

    I'm on a mission to see 179!!!! maybe next week, huh? It could happen. Its a long shot - but it could happen.

    I have a small window of no rain, according to Accuweather - so I'm going for it. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    Any of you on the East Coast have any ill effects from the storm?

    I hit the little death triangle also!

    I walked 40 minutes this morning. Thats all the energy I could muster! Isn't it amazing how a poor nights sleep will just suck the energy right out of you! Course, I could also be a bit weary from the 3 miles I walked yesterday. According to Mapquest I walked 2.25 miles today. That is probably as far as I should go cuz any farther and I pay for it in leg pain that night. So, I'm giving y'all permission to scold me if I push it passed 2.5 miles tops. My longest route is 2.57 miles. Thats the most common route I take. I've just recently changed my path in a more straight shot - home to Cummings Elementary school - round trip is 2.25 miles. I like this route cuz it seems to have the least traffic. A nice quiet walk down a beautiful street! The birds were extremely noisy this morning! More like a spring morning than a fall morning. Wonder what all the commotion was about?

    Just had 4 slices of perfectly fried bacon! I often cook it too crispy -- and then I start to think I eating little cancer causing wafers or something! Today - golden brown with just a little soft fat - PERFECT. Since I had a midnight snack of almond butter I need to skip that little treat this afternoon - otherwise my calories will go too high. Dinner tonight is 5 oz of pork and mashed cauliflower.

    I am surprised that I am loving this tea with no sweetener in it! Green Tea w/Pomegranate! Thanks Pedi for the tip! Green Tea is supposed to a good source of antioxidants Plus, its a boost to my metabolism, as the the caffeine gives me a REV! vroom vroom! But have to admit - right now I just want to take a nap.

    Today is mail/deposit and patient charts at work -- hopefully there is lots to do, cuz yesterday I only worked ONE STINKING hour! I mean.......... yes, I love not having much responsibility - and I love having the freedom to work pt - well 2 pt jobs, plus the mom responsibilites, and house stuff - but still. I have it pretty good and I love my husband for allowing me to have this freedom. He likes me not working full time cuz I can get things done that wouldn't otherwise be so simple to do.

    I should be heading for the shower........ have a good day everyone - and for those of you on the east side of the country - blessings and safety as you dig out from the storm!

    You keep up that determination and you will have fantastic results.

    Be sure you don't overdo it with the walking though. I know you have fibro and not chronic fatigue, but they are awfully similar. Pushing too much makes things worse. When you can do 2.5 miles and still be raring to go, that's when you should expand your limits. I haven't tried to walk any further, but it doesn't take me as long to feel better afterwards, so I'm making progress.
