Weight: 229.2

Looks like a beautiful day here......but bear hunters out training their dogs all over the place.   And since there is a bear...nearby...this is a busy spot.  Slept  in later today than usual....when I don;t have to get up to cook breakfast for D...I guess I can sleep in a bit...who knew...LOL

Wanting to get on the exercise bike...but just getting over some sciatica...so not today...hopefully tomorrow.  

I am really loving those little Salonpas pain relieving patches...they really work well...and let me sleep a lot better.

Planning a medium activity day...so that this passes.

Progress as of today: 23.6 lbs lost so far, only 84.2 lbs to go!

happy-1 on 07/11/2018:
I will have to try the patches for my neck!

bearcountrygg on 07/11/2018:
I just looked at the box....and they are ok for necks......and I get some residual relief even after the 8 hours when I take it off....


Donkey on 07/11/2018:
I'm going to have to remember Salonpas the next time I have back problems.

Do you eat bear?

bearcountrygg on 07/12/2018:
Salonpas...wonderful...bear….NOPE...in fact D's fun is working with the dogs...and training the dogs...he loves to chase the bear...in fact...the dogs and even the bear seem to enjoy it...he has never actually hunted the bear....he won't eat it so he won't actively hunt them.


horn_of_plenty on 07/12/2018:
i have used those salonpas in the past...i think i liked them also!

 I am feeling like I have traveled back in time a bit........

I feel like I have again made peace with food...all food...there is NO bad food..

There IS eating for the wrong reasons and I'm not doing that

There IS overeating and I'm not doing that either

There is also enjoying small amounts of everything...savouring it.....and enjoying it without guilt.

I took the power away from the food....and placed it in my hands where it should be.

I'm not counting, I'm not over eating, I'm not stuffing myself with anything,,,,including so called healthy foods.

I'm waiting for hunger, I'm eating enough of what I want to get rid of the hunger...and no more.

Sometimes I go ahead and let hunger be....un fed....for awhile...I actually always did like the feeling of hunger

I've gone back to my old ways...from my thin days.....it's only been a few days.....but food has it seems..lost it's power over me.......

I'm not going to say that I HOPE it lasts......I will make it last...because it works for me

I'm finally back to eating like a thin person

The scales are dropping

I'm finally back in the zone...and I'm not tempting fate....so I won't be talking about what I eat....maybe some day when I'm super secure in what I'm doing.

Back in the day....family would tell me I needed to eat more...but I stuck to my guns and did what I wanted to do...and it was successful......we know ourselves best....we know what works, what doesn't and what triggers us to go down the road.......I won't be posting what I eat because I don't want to trigger anyone else that is following their own path...........but I will post losses and general life things...maybe someday I will feel secure enough in this to talk about what I am eating......

I will say that the quantity of food I am eating has become less...but it is more enjoyable...so that makes up for it

Going through photos...I can see in old pictures...the quantity of food on my plate...and others.....( it was eye opening).....I'm looking back at what my parents ate.....an aunt that said my uncle and her shared a sandwich,...another aunt that plays bingo at burger king and wins a hamburger...so she eats half and saves the other half for the next day.......quantities got majorly messed up around here....and I'm back in the zone...and happy about it.

Hi BCGG!

I love your entry because it all makes super sense! Even that book I’m reading that I told you about – supports the fact that we know ourselves best, children are born (most children) with the internal signs to know when they are full and when to stop eating. Children deprived in the womb and children who are restricted actually lose those internal signals! At least one study has shown this. Internal body signals is always the best way to go. We must be hungry to know when to eat…you have a good thing going.

bearcountrygg on 07/10/2018:
All things I knew all along...but apparently I wanted to do it "right"....LOL.....like paying a diet business….UGH...should have stuck with what I knew all along....I feel like it's old home week.....it's comfortable.


happy-1 on 07/10/2018:
I had a really hard time learning what was hunger thirst or bored/lonely. I still work on it. Proud of you.

bearcountrygg on 07/11/2018:
TY......for me...hunger is ONLY...rumbling stomach......everything else is an imposter...or aat least that is the way I look at it.

It's not even 9 AM yet.......and...while I have not even thought of breakfast yet...I decided to make an early morning trip to the grocery store for meat and eggs......and realised..that D was out in woods...with the dogs...sniffing out bear...and he had left his coffee at home.....D NEEDS his coffee...I called him...he hadn't realized.......he had found a bear track...and had 1 dog out of the truck........then he realized he didn't have dog water either.....( we are really getting old here)...so I agreed to bring them too him....so at 6 this morning I was heading into some serious forrest......made my deliveries.......and got out of the forest...yeah....and survived it...( our old joke...is turn right at the trees...then go straight...and turn left at the trees)...well...I maneuvered that OK...headed for the gas station...then the grocery store....while at the store he called and said the tree guys were on their way  ( only 7 weeks late)..so he headed home...I finished up at the store...and when I got here..he was here...as well as the tree cutters...and trees were coming down!!!!! Well...things are FINALLY getting done in no mans land.........celebration time.   so.......I've had part of a cup of coffee...and part of a can of diet vernors ( it;s a michigan thing)....and need to eat.and no idea of what to have.......I love these busy days.

EDIT

Just going to be a busy one here today.....it's only just begun...so I will be sticking to the cals.......between 1,200 and 1,500.......It seems that I just end up there anyway...rather i count as I go...or wait until night and figure it all out.........and the less I think about it all the better........

Maria7 on 07/09/2018:
Wow, what an interesting post! You are very brave going into the bear-land forest for real. Happy for you that you got your trees down. Can you see better now? Will probably help reception a lot.

bearcountrygg on 07/09/2018:
We still have a lot of trees...just the dead ones came down......but now with a wired in phone and internet...we are getting better receptions......but still live amongst dense forrest….one of D's friends treed a big bear...near by yesterday.....so they are out and about around here...


Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2018:
what an adventurous and exciting morning!!!! i'm glad it all worked out for the BEST!

never heard of Vernors! :) it must be only in Michigan as you said!! :) we have too many other drinks anyways!!!!!!!

Hey, look at those new numbers! Way to go!

The way I look at spending $$ on the house is that if it makes your overall life better and contributes to the well-being of your property or increases the resale value of your home, then it's worth it.

bearcountrygg on 07/08/2018:
Yup...calling it maintenance...one of those expenditures that are not fun...but do make our lives better...and make the house more secure and liveable…..it is worth it...you are right.


Donkey on 07/08/2018:
Lunch is well-done - bravo!

bearcountrygg on 07/08/2018:
Just making it a simple day...the less I think about food...the better...working on seeing it as fuel...NOT FUN! LOL

Well...life is just being life right now......... scales are down....food has been put in it's place......and some things are getting done...and some things are frustratingly undone.  

Last night the evening eating stopped...because I made it stop.......and wasn't very hard.....a firm NO to myself was all it took.  A quick review of what I had eaten for the day ( in my head).....let me know that I had eaten enough...and anything else was unnecessary......so it was actually easy.

A few days not "dieting"...put me back in control....so of course...I have to tempt fate again...LOL....just to make sure...LOL.......Scales were great this morning...and today I count...because counting or not...the fact is...I should be able to lose counting...or not counting...or restricting food types...or not restricting anything......truth is...I should be able to control myself in ANY situation.......the planets should not have to align...the mood should not have to be perfect.......it's food for cripes sake...not oxygen....I can control it in any situation. Food should have nothing to do with my mood, my happiness or unhappiness, my busy days or my boring days......food is fuel and nothing more.....food has been escalated to celebration, a cure for boredom, a mood booster, a pacifier.  So today....food is fuel...and that's all that it is....I wouldn't think of putting anything other than gas in my car...and today...I'm gassing up my body.....LOL......all righty then................................

5:30 to 8:00.....first coffee and the news, made D's breakfast....2 loads laundry, switching out another rms curtains...took  some down...prepping to get the different ones up, bath, hair, make up and dressed.  A game of words with friends...with an old friend....ck'd facebook, still not hungry...so not eating yet. A littl Dr Phil.

8:00 to 9:00....2nd cup coffee, sat down with D and planned our day...it will be a long one...guy arriving at 9 tonight to plug up openings in roof vents....against bats...stripped bedding and finished washing up window area in bd rm, breakfast = banana and a boiled egg....didn't get hungry until at least 3 hours after getting out of bed....good to reaffirm...I do not need to eat  first thing in morning.....folded a mountain of laundry...washer and dryer still working.

9:00-10:00.....took bags of cans and donations to car...neatened car, D can take the dogs back to the woods tomorrow ( guiet time will be over)...so I gathered some truck foods for him ( HE'S HAPPY)....made bed,  put up bd rm curtains.

10:00-11:00.....charging phone, putting laundry away....sorting bedding for donation...found lots...no king sized beds for us anymore...so we don't need to store that stuff....now theres lots of room in the laundry room cupboard  :)  Washer and dryer still going....another different tree cutter coming...( this is getting old)...tonight

11:00 to 1:00......Paperwork, mail, new mail lady and boy is she confused...the next door neighbors first name is the same as D's...and both of our last names start with the same letter...and our addresses are only diferent by 1 number.....she's really confused...LOL...I opened an add that belonged to the neighbor today.....need to start watching that now.  Prepared lunch and ate.....phone ringing a LOT.....Lunch was pork chop, beans and rice, and lettuce, cucumber and ranch.

1:00................laundry still going...and I will finish it over the course of the afternoon...also dishes....other than that.....I think I will relax for awhile...

4:00....decided on crackers with toppings...so had tuna  salad and or peanut butter on crackers...and mixed berries

Donkey on 07/07/2018:
This will be interesting to see if a day of tracking will help or hinder. In theory, I think it sounds like a good idea -- sort of a "realty check". However, this is something that I do not do (I do not track calories), so I'm not sure why I do think it's a good idea -- periodic tracking, here and there.

I hope today is successful on the food front! And congratulations on a very good weigh-in!

bearcountrygg on 07/07/2018:
Thanks...and so far so good on the food....getting back to the old..wait until I'm hungry thing is the best for me.

graindart on 07/07/2018:
Really wish I could see food as only "fuel". That would take care of my weight issues.

Your mention of bats reminded me of when I was an early teenager visiting my uncle/aunt in northern British Columbia, Canada. They lived year-round on a lake in the middle of nowhere where there were other cabins that were mostly used during the summers. They made some extra money each year by getting other peoples cabins ready for use each year. Bats were a problem and often times ended up in the fireplace chimneys. The way they got rid of them was to hook a garden hose up to the exhaust pipe of a dirtbike and smoke them out. Probably would've been easier if they just blocked the chimneys off at the end of each summer to prevent the bats from getting in.

bearcountrygg on 07/07/2018:
That was inventive...I don't think I would have ever thought of that....My first memory of a bat was my parents taking my grandparents to get groceries...when I was a kid...and as we all walked into the house while it was dark out..each carrying a bag...a bat followed us in, it was inner city...but something I had never witnessed before.....the men were swinging things at it...I'm surprised it didn't die of fright...LOL...it found it's way back out the door.


Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2018:
seeems you are getting a productive day out today!!!! and congrats on making some healthy choices these past several days. It feels good to be proactive indeed!!!!! and i see you are loving your coffee today...do you drink several diff types? or always the same exact type?

bearcountrygg on 07/07/2018:
I use K cups...so I switch it up...sometimes flavored...sometimes reg...sometimes decaf


Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2018:
yeah, thank gosh for variety...we have a k cup variety at work too..it's GREAT!

bearcountrygg on 07/07/2018:

Windy around here today.......lady tree trimmer coming today to give us an estimate...after cancelling yesterday......after a short stop here.........but we alredy had an antenna guy on the roof anyway...so it worked for all of us.

Less eating was going great...thought about food only to plan 2 meals a day...and then prep and of course eating....but then last night ,,,the aimless late eating at 8 to 9 started....and before I knew it....I was eating without even realising it...it started so well...but got off track without a warning.... I actually had to stay up late because I had eaten so late...I didn't want to go to bed with a full stomach.............slept good though..........I'm giving it another shot today......and will try to remember not to eat in the evening...I think that is probably one of my hardest times to resist eating....( is it something about ....last chance to eat for the day????......is it get it before it's gone?......is it boredom and tv watching?.........is it the old habit of getting in the leftover calories or points for the day from the past?)....I'm not sure...but somebody needs to lock up the kitchen after 5 around here.

What a day...tree service is so undependable....I don't even want to think about it.........got the new house phone day before yesterday...and they sold our number to ADT home security and we have in two days,....gotten 4 calls because we were chosen to get a new home security system,,,.....HAHAHAHALOLOLO...NO!....One call from KEITH...who speaks indian...one call from a female...and I have no idea what she said at all..other than SECURITY SYSTEM...another from a woman with a firm hold on her mandarin accent....and then a guy from california who knew our names, address and when i told him he was the 4th in two days...he felt bad...admittied it was through our new phone provider...and couldn't stop himself from still trying...to sell us ADT.......

Eating going fine today.......not allowing myself anything other than liquids tonight.

 Spent a fitful night......I see naps in my future.....big big thunderstorm last night...I Love those.....but rough night anyway.....tree down across driveway...and a guy is coming at 9 to put up an antenna to help our cell phone reception...this hopefully will work...$400 for the antenna...plus whatever he charges today....life just got a lot more expensive...and now we have a land line too to fall back on......so much for downsizing...LOL

Had a nice 4th.....and didn't write anything down...and didn't think about food other than to just put a nice meal on the table....and when I added it all up this morning...I ACTUALLY ATE LESS THAN USUAL!!!!

I truly do better when I don't think about dieting...D has always told me this....I knew it...yet I keep writing things down...weighing and measuring...diets make me fat....doing the same thing and expecting a different result is truly insanity....

Last night our satellite went out so we lost the tv reception.....we could only watch pre recorded shows...and I went to the den and watched a PBS show about healthy eating for fatty liver.....for about the 4th time.....she said...throw away your scales......stop dieting....eat whole foods.....women should have a waist circumfrance of 35 inches or less...and men 40 inches or less......it made sense.....I know I'm a junk food junkie...so....that makes it difficult...but the no scale thing made an impact.

So....I'm going to give it a few days.......not think about counting or listing at all...then weigh in and see how it goes.

EDIT

Busy day here...washing and hanging the curtains that were lost for 3 years.....antenna guy here putting antenna on roof.....and we have given up on our usual tree service...so a new one is coming tonight for an estimate.....truck oilchange in between......and I've been up and about for hours.....going up and down the stairs should add plenty of exercise for the day...no time for anything else......

Noticabley less food eten so far........not writing food lets me forget food....just me I guess

Donkey on 07/05/2018:
This is why I'm not relying on a food scale this time around - although I still think it would be very helpful. I'm focusing on the types of foods I eat, and not so focused on portions--- although that's probably why I'm maintaining at these numbers and not losing. Oh well...

bearcountrygg on 07/05/2018:
The more I think about, weigh it, count it, write it...the more I eat....D had me right all along...I knew he did...but my virgo sign wants to write everything down....well....not this time....I feel better accepting it this time...I knew it...just didn't like to not be recording it.


horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2018:
I will talk more soon about dieting and how to think of it, according to the book i read. it is insightful for ME and offers ME such good advice on a more healthy approach to a positive lifestyle and how not to dwell so negatively about weight...and make it more a postive focus on movement and exercise to feel good, rather than for weightloss. it's really helpful.

remember it's just not the number, but how you mentally and physically feel. I recommend getting out for a walk when it's doable. and when it's hot to walk in the evening as sun sets or after it sets....maybe you and hubby can create a new healthy routine that you enjoy. can be a short 10min walk to start / and only 20 min fully for a long time would be VERY healthy.

instead of looking at the number, try to see it as how you are feeling. this seems to suit you more...?

sorry about the $400. things are so $$$$$$.

bearcountrygg on 07/05/2018:
Yes...walking is now on the agenda….we are walking around here more...and I'm making myself walk the stairs more....I'm definitely eating less too..


Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2018:
and with more exercise, less time is spend idle and wanting to eat for boredom :) plus, you will feel good by walking...the endorphins!

Going to be a warm one........I'm planning a quick grocery and drug store, post office trip this morning...and then back at home....I will decide after that........maybe just take the day off and read and get caught up on recorded tv shows.  I'm thinking of setting some weight loss and  exercise goals for myself.....it is way too easy for me to coast on those............I'm also looking at the food supplies that are here...and wanting to make use of all of those....I'm thinking of some creative ways to use all of it up......soooo many cans of plain veggies.....would make some awesome vegetable soup....but summer isn't my favorite time for soup...although it is plenty cool in here so maybe that will work anyway...we also have cases of snacky kinds of things...that aren't too high calorie.......and I'm considering just opening a box...and using it until it's gone....the boredom should keep me from over eating......I'm also seriously aware...that I need a lot of 1,200 calorie days..........the scales get stuck on the 1,500 days.....it shouldn't be that way but it is.

I've read some interesting facts about being heavier than you'd like but being healthy...i think you fall into this category...??

I'm reading a very strange book, in support of weighing more but being in good health. ie - no diabetes, no high blood pressure, etc. It's called Fat?So!

bearcountrygg on 07/03/2018:
I wish I was more comfortable at this weight......but it is way too much......my metaqbolism is so messed up...that as a former boss told me ( he was a marathoner)…..I was doing permanent damage on that weight loss clinc (keto) 400 cal a day diet..and he was right...then add low thyroid...and it gets worse.....I won't give up....I have what drs have told me is a small frame....I really shouldn't carry this much weight....Book sounds like it's worth a read though.


horn_of_plenty on 07/03/2018:
yeah, the book is obviously opinionated - not scientific.

the author relates her views to the reader backed up with others' opinions added into her book as well as scientific research she gathered just to back up her points. it's funny at times...i think she's also been a comedian? it's worth a read to get into the mind of someone who has chosen to be fully comfortable at her weight (she does exercise and eat her vegetables she says). she is 270.

Looked her up...I can see why you may not finish her book.....I don't think I would care for it. Makes me smile when I see all of these things out there on FB...like Tattoo acceptance in the work place...LOL....like telling facebook that they don't want to be judged...yet....they don't mention their work ethics at all......I think this gal has just decided to try to convince others...to make herself feel better......today...at the store...there was a guy with tattoos all over his face....and he proceeded to turn on his music...on HIS phone...and blast it as loud as it would go...to drown out the store music...the woman that was with him looked embarrassed...just another case of trying to convince others that we should accept his ways....like it or not....I think we can all draw our own conclusions...and I think she is making excuses.....

Spending more time sleeping lately...I've been taking benedryl for the tick bite...because there is a round rash...about the size of a golf ball...but it's not a bullseye rash...and my tick lady was not the type to cause lyme.....so I'm hoping that it's just an allergic reaction to a bug bite.........I sure seem to be attracting bugs this season...UGH...anyway...benedryl puts me to sleep...even the childrens dose ( which is what I'm taking)......wonder how many calories are in that stuff....it is sure sweet.

i doubt too many calories, but if it's not sugar free, there definitely are some!

i'm gonna look it up as i've always wanted to know...

well i found thru a search that liquid Nyquil has almost 100 cals per serving!!! i could believe it...maybe it's slightly less ?

Hugs... anxiety. Things like tick bites and rashes and bugs give me the worst dreams.

I'm pretty calm about it...but D is worried.….I think it's just an insect allergy reaction...he's convinced I'm doomed...LOL...he feels guilty because he thinks he brought it in on his clothes.

I am not so comfortable around bugs or insects either!

bearcountrygg on 07/03/2018:
aas long as I can see them...and get them...I'm okay/…...but this crawling on me at night is nasty...I hate ants anyway.....I guess the tick has me a bit unnerved....
