Baking, Cooking, Pondering

I've been doing all  the above the past week. I have new pictures in my digital camera to post, but im sitting in Federal Income Tax Law. We get a 10-min break, for a 3 hour class.

I've also been struggling with food. Do I eat too much? at the wrong times? I need to figure out what is going to work for ME personally to lose weight, and im struggling. I feel like i need to hit the reset button, start all over, reprogram my brain -- if only it was that easy. But im trying.

Dinner today was " nasty" in my fiance's words  -- some beef jerkey and 10 oz of unripe mangos. I wish I had more mangos and less jerky. But, honestly the only reason I even got the jerky was because of the protein content. How important is protein anyways. Esther told me someon told her that u have to take your body weight and divide in half, then eat that many grams of protein a day. Yikes!

Ugh, I have lots to decipher and I need to do it ASAP. I'm determined to prove people wrong. I get the feeling that people think I will never be thin, they sort of scoff when i talk about being thin in the future tense.

How much protein do you eat a day?


  1. I'm sorry you have been struggling! I know that you will find the right balance for you and your body. I eat a good amount of protein everyday (but in the form of eggs, dairy and soy).

  2. don't be so hard on yourself, you are a full time student, plannning a wedding..don't stress your self out..protien helps me not to snack as much, I do not get hungry sooner...
