I'm feeling cranky

I started a new diet today and I'm hungry and cranky. I know, how cliche is a new diet at the new year, but I had to. I got on the scale today and it wasn't pretty. I guess I've started to eat my way back to happiness since Mom passed. Problem is, I'm not getting back to happiness and getting unhappier by the pound. :(

Another thing I'm irritated about is my blog's background is now white when it should be dark gray. I don't know why it changed but I know when it did. I signed up my blog for Google Analytics so I could get some insight on my blogs traffic. So now until I can figure it out or just change my template, I'm stuck with this and I don't like it. I just don't get this html crap. If anybody knows how to put your own picture as the background of your blog, please help. I've googled it and found out how, it just doesn't fit right! grrrr! I need a cookie.


  1. Hi Jaime! Thanks so much for the sweet birthday wishes and I think 40 is the new 30! I'm cranky every time I look at the scale but today I actually exercised for the first time in like- a year!!LOL! Anyway, good luck on your new goals and hang in there girly! When you figure out the picture in the background thing- let me know too..hee,hee!

  2. I can't believe you said the word D.I.E.T. uuggghh!!
    ok, really, i can't even go to sleep until I decide which one to do for a month. I lost alot when the whole low fat fad blew through the 90's and I lost alot on the low carb thingy in 2000's (1-10). Seeing how I'm the new 30 (40) i find I can't abuse my body the way I used to with the same results?!!
    Let me know how it works out for you....

    BTW~ Love your new blog!!BAH!!!


  3. I'm sorry. You are not alone, I started eating my feelings after my brother & mother-in-law passed w/in months of each other. I didn't start a diet this new year, I can't make those work, so I made a promise to myself to take the time to walk or do a little something everyday. Gonna get younger this year. haha So far so good. I already feel better & less hungry. Hopefully I can keep it up for the long haul, I'll be praying for you too.
    Wish I could help with the blog issue, I struggle at it. The white is kind of nice though. :p don't eat a cookie!

  4. I know this sounds lame, but the dieting thing will get easier. I started my diet about last October or maybe earlier. And at first it was torture. I was hungry all the time and the sugar cravings were like crack cravings! (I assume). But you know what, after about 2 weeks, I just didn't think about sugar anymore. And I even after a little Christmas indulging, I still can live on a lot less food than I used to. Hang in there! it will be worth it.

    p.s. Sorry, I dont know the html stuff...I have brilliant friends I get to do mine for me!

  5. Jaime...Happy New Year and I see you are making resolutions like I am...I hope we can both keep them!

    I watned to check to see if you got your telephoto lens over the holidays and how you like it?
