Weigh in

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know I’ve lost 10.5 lbs since last week. That is all thanks to eating veggies and fruit.

So I cheated yesterday. I had gluten. I got sick. Real sick. Sweating real bad. It was gross. More details but I’m not gonna share. Heh.

Gross.

Well this is the weigh in update. I’m going to post a recipe and some food that people with celiac disease can eat.

Confirmed.

Life has changed for me. It just hasn’t changed for me, it also has changed for Tony too. I have found out and has been confirmed that I have celiac disease. I am okay with the news because I can finally start getting healthy. I know what is making me sick all the time. I’m tired of feeling weak, time to start feeling strong!
Now, the doctor also said my thyroid is also very high, but she said once the weight comes off, that will ease up as well. But with that being high, it will be hard to lose weight. But I’ve been eating right and will start exercising on my days off. It is a start! It’s more than what I do now.

What the awesome thing about this change in my life, is that I have great support around me. Tony made dinner last night for us, all gluten/wheat free. He made chicken and rice. He spiced the chicken up good, and everything was great. I am happy that I can have the foods I love, but just with different sides.

Another thing that I have been doing this past week, is leaving the fast food out of my diet. I can’t depend fast food anymore. It’s literally killing my insides. When you eat fast food every day, it is something that you depend on. It’s like a drug. You depend on it, because it makes you feel like yourself. I know it’s only been a week, but I feel so much better without the fast food.

At work has been difficult for foods though. I will tell you that for snacks I have been eating carrots and grapes. (My two favorite things in the world!) At work, they give us free snacks when we hit our numbers, the snacks that they give are chocolate, chips, ect… I know on my first day, I picked up a kitkat bar, and gave it away. I had my grapes and my carrots to depend on.

This disease will not define me. It will only make me healthy into the person I want to become.

I will be weighing in on Friday to see if I lost any weight with changing how I eat.

Engaged On Christmas!

You read the post title…That’s right. Your little writer on The Sam Slam is engaged! We are so excited.

 

We are so cute!

We are so cute!

I just wanted to say how thankful I am for his family. They are just the best. Words cannot describe how much I appreciate and love them. They definitely given me the best Christmas to remember.

Okay, so not only did I get a beautiful ring, I also got a Hello Kitty bike, an iPad mini, Tardis cookie jar, sonic screw driver (obsessed with Doctor Who!), a spanking brand new camera, and more Hello Kitty things, a stuffed Piglet…..and did I mention I got engaged?

I’m excited, who wouldn’t be?

So now the real challenge awaits…What type of diet should I go on for this wedding? Oh wait, I’m already on one. You know the one, where I can’t eat wheat, rye, breads, stuff that makes my stomach twist in knots because I’m allergic to all that kind of stuff. I’ve decided that going to get my 4th meal these days, aren’t the best option for me.

There is this girl on facebook who weighs more than me but lost 53 lbs, and you can tell a difference. She is beautiful no matter what, but she is losing the weight for herself. That’s what I want to do, I just don’t have the best will power. If I eat the food with gluten, I get sick. When I eat the food without gluten, I’m like a bright light bulb, ready to explode. I can tell you right now, I hate having celiac disease. Why can’t I eat all my favorite foods?

:)

🙂

It’ll be okay though. I am a little bit broke at the moment. (All of us get to these moments…) But once I do get caught up in all my lovely bills, I will be shopping for healthier foods. Right now, rice is my best friend. Tony did make me chili this weekend. It was delicious. And then I was hungry for pizza, and so I ordered it, ate it, felt horrible after I ate it..So it really does cost me when I eat something bad. So I’m just going to stick to my rice.

My apartment complex is big, so I guess I could go walking the whole complex, but it’s freezing outside. It goes into the twenties at night in georgia. WHO WOULD OF THOUGHT THAT WOULD OF HAPPEN? It’s depressing. I can’t wait till it’s warm and I can start riding my awesome hello kitty bike. 🙂 Best dayyy ever!

Well thanks for reading my rant.

SATURDAY!

News in my world:
Thanks for coming to my blog and reading about my personal life. I can be quite a catch. This past week, which was an awesome week, I got to have more time to myself. This time that I had, I relaxed, made dinner, and even caught up on a couple TV shows I have been missing. I also caught up on my sleep.

Pocket, my small dog, he’s a little bad. He’s finally survived a week without having an accident in the house. That is great, because that means he is finally being obedient. With him being over a year old, I thought it would be harder, but he’s being so good. Also, I will be posting a video on Wednesday starring him. He does something I would like to share with the world.

 

Android or Apple?:
I own an Android and an Apple product. Whatever you do, don’t ever ask which one I like more. I would never be able to answer that question. I love using my Android as my phone. I love using my iTouch for everything else. Tony just recently bought himself an iPad, which I use a lot when he isn’t around. I absolutely love it. The only thing you can’t do on the iPad is do word documents, which what this is. I usually type everything up before I post it. Sometimes, I even write it down.

The difference between Android and Apple App Market: Android has great apps, but not as great as the Apple App market. There are so many apps on the Apple market, I wish that Android had. I know that the Android Market is a lot bigger because of all the different phones that has the Android OS on it, but Apple is just amazing.

What is one app that you know an android user wouldn’t find on the Apple app market? Temple Run. I am so addicted to this game. Tony is addicted as well. Tonight, at our family’s house (with the UFC fights on), we are playing this game to see who can get the highest score. Tony so far has 205,000. I have 145,000. And the rest are under that.

What’s NEW and EXCITING for this week?
As seen on Yahoo news, maintaining your metabolism is good for a lot of reasons. So if you are trying to lose weight, or just to look fit, here you can find the top 20 ways to keep your metabolism good, or get it right the first time! 20 Ways to Speed Metabolism

What to expect by Wednesday?
My answer to that is simple. I want to have a planned out diet system. I want to see how long that can last before I try my next diet. Have you ever tried a diet that did work and kept off the weight? Please let me know. I would try anything.

Yours truly,

Samantha

New Year Resolution

This past week, I have decided to put my new year resolution to test. At the beginning of the year, I went to the doctors to get a check up and see how much I’d weigh. At that time, I weighed 4 lbs more than what I do now. That is two weeks later exactly.

I feel healthier, and I even act like I am healthier. I’ve done a lot of thinking and how to do this major change.

I have decided to change my eating habits. I am such an emotional eater, it is not even funny. I love to eat food. I’ll eat when I’m happy, I’ll eat when I’m sad, and I’ll especially eat when I’m upset. That’s who I was. This is the biggest change ever to me because, it’s something I really want.

Every morning before I take my dog, Pocket, outside for a walk, I will drink a glass of water. Water helps make yourself more full before you eat. It also helps your body digest the food you are about to it. When I come back in from the walk, I will eat just one slice of whole grain bread. White and wheat bread are bad for you.

I also write in my ipod what food and how many calories I eat in a day. I do not go over 1200 in a day. Instead of eating 3 meals a day, I eat 3 meals with 2 snacks. I also eat my dessert before I ate my dinner. It gives it a better chance to burn that calorie off. My dessert is typically that second snack in the day.

When you are bored, you eat. When I’m bored, all I do is think about food. I fiddle my thumbs and just think about how much food I want to eat.

I want to provide you with some information that I have found online that helped me lose this 4 lbs.

1.) Drink a glass of water before any meal.
2.) Eat a meal. In 3 hours, have a snack. After that, wait 3 hours and have lunch. In another 3 hours, have your dessert. Then wait 3 more hours, and have your dinner.
3.) Get rid of the bad foods, so when you crave them, grab an apple. (or something you know you will like)
4.) If you sit down all day, walk while you are on break at work.

I hope to share more information I’ve come to see.

Always,

Samantha
