I'm back! Guess what? I went to a hypnotist! She gave several post hypnotic suggestions for losing weight:
1. I have lost all desire for sweets, carbs, and fatty foods.
2. I have full control over my daily eating habits.
3. I eat for health and nutrition only.
4. I look great and feel wonderful.

It's really working for me. I've lost 10 pounds and have totally eliminated carbs and sugar from my diet with little effort. This upcoming week I'm going to try this detox diet which is called: The Ultra Simple Diet. I'll let you know how it goes. If anyone out there has tried this diet or hypnosis, I'd love to hear from you.

Good Luck and Love to Everyone!

Positive Affirmations

Thanks to Homevalley and for your comments and interest. It's nice to know there are people out there like you both. Well, I've been doing ok with the eating, but just really maintaining, not really losing. I really need to start exercising. That's not going so well. But, I have started saying a positive affirmation that I like: I am so happy and grateful that I now have a happy, healthy, strong, and slim body. Hopefully that will help. If anyone has any good affirmations please let me know.

Day Three

I did it. I changed the name of my blog from: Constantly Struggling to Lose Weight -to- Getting Thinner and Thinner. The entry below is what started it all, plus the comment from a fellow blogger, (check it out it's pretty good). Another blog also inspired me, (she has taken some amazing photographs), after I wrote the entry below, I went blogging for inspiration and saw her blog and she had taken pictures of signs hanging up in her home that said, guess what? "Everyday I get thinner and thinner" I took it as a sign (no pun intended). Thanks for the inspiration girls. Check out my my blog:

I woke up this morning thinking about the title of my blog. Has anyone read 'The Secret'? It was discussed on 'Oprah' not too long ago. It's basically about positive thinking and the law of attraction. Well, I was thinking that the name of my blog is not very positive. In fact according to 'The Secret' if I say and think I'm struggling to lose weight then that is what
I will continue to do and attract to myself. So, I think I should change the name of my blog to something more positive. How about: Rapidly Losing Weight, Think Thin, Skinny Minny, Dietista, or Everyday I get thinner and thinner. What do you think? Please vote for your favorite, or if you have any better ideas, it would be really helpful to me. Thanks and wish me well with my struggle (I mean adventure) today.

Day Two

Today was better, but not great. I decided not to go as extreme as yesterday. I set myself up to fail by dinner time yesterday. Today I took it slow.

Breakfast: coffee, a frozen waffle

Lunch: left over spaghetti and meat sauce

Dinner: shrimp and penne in vodka sauce

no real snacks except, a piece of gum and a piece of candy

Like I said, better but not great.

Day One

I decided today was the day. I woke up with a new sense of determination. I was going to lose weight now so I won't feel horrified about getting into a bathing suit in August, when I'm planning to go away.

I started the day off perfectly. A coffee for breakfast. Six walnuts (they are supposed to reduce your appetite) a little later when I started to feel a little hungry. Then a cup of green tea. For lunch, a small can of tuna and eight Ritz crackers. So far so good. Maybe I can do this. Six almonds this time when I start feeling hungry again.

Dinner time, I start to feel my determination wavering. The kids want sausage for dinner-uh oh. It's ok. I'll just have one sausage and no bread. Well, one sausage turned into two, but I didn't have any bread. The kids wanted ice cream for dessert. That's when I totally lost it. I had a root beer float. It tasted sooo good. But I felt totally defeated. So I drowned my sorrows with some frozen chicken wings and a side of ranch dressing.
