Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 20

  Day 20 Yahoooo! Day 20 and still going strong!  Who would have believed it 2-3 months ago, I could take on really loving my self and trusting the process for my health and spirit.  What an accomplishment and  all due to people who believe in me.  They jump started something I had inside and inspired me to take life on for me.  To not only look at myself, but to those who may cross my path in their own health challenges and life situations. I am in full speed and going on to…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 19

Day 19 Today we went to church and I packed my breakfast and lunch to take care of myself and even my family. No need to deal with wanting to eat and not having the right food. It is truly incredible to have gone so far into my health plan. I can hardly believe that it has been over 40 days doing the detox. I feel fabulous, and look forward to taking care of myself more and more each day. I still have that hair on my chin and now I have been…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 18

  Day 18 Today my husband and I went to the movies. I must say some old habits try to call me in. The popcorn smelled good and stale, and I just loved the habit of having it at the movies. But my health and sanity prevailed. I did get through the rough moments and enjoyed the show after he stopped smacking and acting so pleased with that junk! Being in the mall, was a bit challenging too. All the candy stores and small eateries were jumping alive with smells and joy! But, then I…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 17

  Day 17 Today is Friday and I got up with a mission on my mind. The day has been planned out and I am up and running. I received some discouraging news, but I seem to handle things much differently. More calm and ease, even though I am not comfortable with the news, I am not engaging in the behavior I used to. I notice also the ease in which my body recovers when I exercise and do something new. No sore muscles and no pain for any length of time. I know that…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 16

Day 16 Days are flying by and I seem to have a new interest in exercising.  Moving so much faster and so much easier.  I have thought about taking on my treadmill again today and look forward to making my hour on the beast a true up hill walk. Are the days getting shorter or am I so busy with ‘stuff’ time management is a problem.  I feel so much more even and not so emotionally up and down with the food thing.  I have noticed that now, it is truly a way…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 14

Day 14 Well, girl today is a new day. I have to take care of myself and plan my day. This has taken my joy and deflated my spirit. Too ashamed to write it out to see it on paper what I have done. But this i know is not good. You are only as sick as your secrets. I called my son and told him. Man, that was the best thing I could have done. He told me how wonderful I looked and how my health is shining. I know for me, that…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 13

  Day 13 I have had gas, runny stools, and total discomfort early this morning. Belching like a man, and it had a terrible odor! What was I thinking? I feel awful. Not worth it all. I have had such a toxic headache from last night. Well, I am telling myself to get back on board and do what is best for me. My mind and mouth feel awful. And I want to reverse the food choices I made yesterday. But I have to get on track. I know how great I felt and this…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 12

  Day 12 TMother’z Day today, What a great celebration. But I did have some slips! Yes, I loved my beans, both red and black with my brown rice. Salads with avocados were delicious. And then came the potato salad! Remember the carb lady?! lol! Well, she struck and I fell into her lap. Isn’t it funny how we eat things when we don’t even want them just because they are there. And, it seems that once you get that taste you almost give up and go full force, head on into an eating binge….

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 11

  Day 11 Today is Saturday and I have decided to celebrate with my daughter’z fabulous beans on Sunday. So today, I will eat raw for the most part and will give myself permission to eat the beans. I really want to think more consciously about what I do. I feel so terrific, having this permission isn’t really all that great. Why change something that is working For one thing, I want to stay on the path I have chosen. Not making a plan in…

Mona’s Quest to lose 70 pounds – Day 10

  Day 10 What an incredible morning. I had my hair in protection mode and finally had it done by a professional courtesy of my third oldest son for Mother’z Day.  I could really tell how much I have changed. My face looks clear and slim!  I almost didn’t recognize myself. I also, had the wonderful opportunity to attend a luncheon recognizing women who are making a difference for other and all women.  Yes, I said luncheon.  I felt so great, so healthy, so clear about choices.  The luncheon was delicious by all…
