Yucky Peanut Butter

I just wanted to jump on right quick and tell y'all not to make the peanut butter that I made. It's horrible and bitter. I have no idea why I didn't get online first and see how to do it. Duh.

I'm throwing it out and making some almond butter in a few minutes instead because I have a bag of those. I'll let you know how it turns out.


I am discouraged.

One more thing...I went to the doc yesterday for some blood test results. The last time I was there was in December. He weighed me yesterday, and his scale only showed that I had lost ONE FREAKIN' POUND. I even wore lighter clothes knowing he was probably going to weigh me.

GAH! What's up with that? How is that even possible? His scales also show me NINE POUNDS heavier than my scale at home. My clothes weigh something, but not nine pounds worth. (I took my shoes off to weigh.)

I'm not feeling very encouraged right now. And you can say all you want about not giving the scale power and all that crap, but it does matter. Why have I been working my ass off at this damn diet. Right now I feel like it's not been worth the trouble. Seriously.

I will keep it up until I weight on Sunday, but I swear, if I don't see a vast improvement, I don't know what I'll do. This is baloney.

No need to comment on this. I'm just sayin'. No results after perfect compliance for nearly three weeks = discouragement. It's pretty simple.


  1. I go by my scales and not the doctors. If mine say I lost a pound then dammit I lost a pound. You will soon start seeing a big drop, I'm sure.

  2. Gadzooks.. if I'd eaten so good for 3 weeks and had that happen.. I'd be fit to be tied! But, the main thing is that you felt smaller, don't worry about the dang scales. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Go here and start an account . . it's free.

    You can track the calories in your food and any exercise you do and the calories it burns.

    It has helped me TREMENDOUSLY since July.

    I haven't been keeping it up since Christmas, so I need to return. It is so nice to just find the food and enter it . . or, if it is something form this area, I can add the food and nutritional value.

    Then, there is a place called

    where you can enter a recipe and it will figure the nutrition. Once I do this, I add it to the recipe so it is there . . and add it to Everyday Health so I can find it when I need it.

  4. Hi, Pammy Sue. I am a brand new follower, found you through Kris @ Simplify. I've read back a few weeks and always get a chuckle out of your posts. I have been battling the scale for a few years now. I thought I was doing everything right, eating what I THOUGHT was so good for me, green smoothies, yogurt, ZONE bars, etc. I kept putting on more pounds and my doctor finally told me to try the Jorge Cruise Belly Fat Cure diet. I started two weeks ago and can't believe I've lost almost 10 lbs. so far! When I started looking at how much hidden sugar was in the foods I thought were good for me, I was shocked! If you are on Pinterest, you can find a lot of info. there. It counts carbs and sugars. Just thought I'd let you know because I hate my damn scale, too. I would come home from being weighed and just want to cry. I'm getting a bit better, now! Hang in there and don't let the scale discourage you! If you're feeling good, that's so important. Good luck!

  6. I FEEL your pain, Pammy Sue. It gets harder and harder to lose weight it seems. I have to really count the calories along with cutting the carbs to get ANY results. And, its hard to get back on track once I'm off... and I've been off since last April. I've also gone UP on the scales. I know it is worth it to keep our weight in check... but it just isn't easy. hang in there, girl!! I'm hoping you see good results come Sunday!! blessings ~ tanna

  7. I made peanut butter once and I think it was just a mix of peanuts and oil. Maybe if you used Olive oil it would be healthy ?? I've been battling weight for years and have tried just about every ww group there is - weight watchers, easy slim, jenny craig etc. etc. After being diagnosed diabetic, I saw a dietitian from the Diabetes Association and she gave me a very simple diet to follow. Its probably best described as 'back to basics' but there are enough choices and best of all she took into account my likes and dislikes. I found that the less I thought about it all, the easier it seemed to lose weight. In a few months I lost 12 kg which is about 25 lbs. Sorry to ramble on here. Have a great weekend and relax - it will happen if you want it. xoxox

  8. I know how you feel Pammy. I diet and feel very virtuous for a week and then find I've lost a pound! Gah! as you say !! I expect to lose a pound a DAY at least!! Hate it! I'm aiming for a kilo ( but a pound would be better than nothing) a week before I go on holidays but I'm not hanging out to buy new clothes !!!

  9. Oh that is so disappointing! You have been working so hard on your diet! I am sure that there must just be a difference in your scales. Just keep going by what you have at home, and keep on keeping on. You will get there!!! Don't give up!!!
    Love ya,
    PS My friend Deb had some good thoughts! You should check it out.

  10. I agree with Beverooni. My doctor's scale if 8 lbs more than mine. Pick one, yours or his, and just go by that one. Consistency is key. Weigh at the same time everytime, go to the bathroom first (1 and 2, if possible), don't eat first, weigh naked -- try this only at home. However you do it, just be consistent, that's the only way to know for sure. Renee :)
