Johanne's Journal, 20 September 2012

It's Thursday and I gained! Boy, how I gained!!!

Well, that goes to show why, if you're smart, you don't take a hiatus from FS. Just those few days of not tracking my food was enough to fall back into old habits. This site really is a god-send. OK. I'm back. No more vacations for me. The new holiday challenge starts in 4 days and I am going to take it seriously. Bring it on!!!

My new mantra: "I want to be healthy more than I want that bite of . . . whatever!" I need to get this weight off my knees and that poisonous omentum off my belly. (That's the hard one. I'm shaped like a little, old gent now. LOL!)

I'm off to take down trees . . . Johanne the mighty tree slayer. And, if I gather a few more wild grapes along the way, so much the better. Everyone have a great day and remember, we're in this together!!!

I'm thankful for:

Waking up!
Cooler weather.
Delicious goat stew.
Generous friends.
My funny "alligator chain saw". Safe for little old ladies to use!
Wild grapes. They're so sweet but so tiny!
Fatsecret and my many buddies here!!!

It is amazing what getting out of a habit can do to you. I made the same mistake and I am paying for it. I gained 10lbs, UGH, BUT two have already come back off!

I also can't wait until monday TBL Holiday Edition! I'm gonna work my butt off (hopefully some belly to lol) on that challenge! Looking to lose 30-40 lbs in those 12 weeks! People can gain weight over night, but it takes hard work to lose that weight Grrr why can't it work the same way lol.

So good to see you back aboard the "FS Ship". We are blessed to have this site to help one another, keep track of what we put in our mouths, learn new things. So glad you are up and about, but I second the comment about the chainsaw, be careful!!!!! XXX

Hey Sandy, this chainsaw was made just for little old ladies. It has covers on both sides of the blade and if you don't have both hands on the triggers, it turns off, so you can't reach anywhere near that covered blade. LOL! GO RED!!! We'll do it together!

Angel_face, good luck with those lbs. I'm right there with you! Go RED!!!

Gigi, it's good to be back. FS is a wonderful gift to us all. I know we're all just guinea pigs for Share Magazine, but that's OK because we are also able to see what works and what doesn't and have access to all that information as well. Love you lady!
