100 lbs goal: November 2013 - Week 5

This is the 1st day of week 5. Last week I didn't post as much. Apparently no one is on the website anymore. But I keep on being on. I haven't had cakes, or cookies, or soda, or cinamon buns, since the 2nd of November! Yesterday, I had to fight the urge so badly. I wanted something sweet and gooey and juky. 

I don't see that I am losing weight despite leaving sugar. I don't eat much, but as the so called "experts" tell us your body shuts down - I guess. I will start exercising tomorrow. I just don't want to do it now because my sister is still visiting and I have to deal with my other sister on a regular basis, i don't want to deal with both of them at the same time.

I start vacation this week and I can't wait. I don't think it is going to be a problem. We really don't do Thanksgiving. Though my little sister loves doing it. But this year she is having an operation, and she says she can't. I told her I won't and I really don't care. It is not really our tradition. Unfortunately, my brother will be visiting for that long weekend. And I know I should be friendlier to my siblings, but right now I'm fed up with them.

I feel emotionally crappy today. I wish I had someone to talk to or someone to go out with. Or at least some kind of interest. I don't know. I'll take my vitamins and maybe the emotions will stop going all over the place. I know that doens't make sense, and I know I'm babbling.

Oh, well, to the cyber gods - or anyone that is reading - I'll hang in there.

Hi I am not able to get on very easily but I saw your post tonight and thought I would say 'hi'. Hope you have some good exercise tomorrow, and good going on the no sugar. SJ

I can so relate. When I have those days to eat junk I think how much more successful I would be on my journey if I had someone to talk to or hang out with. It's hard doing this and being all alone

thanks for your reply. I'm still on the no sugar thing, but fighting the urge every day. What keeps me is that I feel guilty if I break the promise. I made a promise to my mom that I wouldn't eat sugar for a year - I made it on the second anniversary of her passing, so maybe it's her way of helping me now that is not here. Whatever works, I guess!
