IT'S A NEW DAY....

05/16/2014 I KEEP FALLING BUT I AM GOING TO KEEP GETTING UP. I STRUGGLE WITH NIGHT EATING AND HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME WHEN I MAKE MISTAKES WITH FOOD. IF I EAT A PEICE OF PIZZA I THROW IN THE TOWEL. IT'S REALLY TIME I GET REAL ABOUT THIS AND PUT IN A LITTLE MORE WORK. I CAN DO THIS. I KNOW I CAN.

My name is Allie. AS LONG AS I CONTINUE TO KEEP TRYING I AM GOING TO MAKE IT. WHY IS IT SO VERY HARD TO LOSE WEIGHT? WHEN I WAS YOUNGER I WOULD GO ON THESE EXTRAVAGANT DIETS AND EAT 6-800 CALORIES A DAY FOR A MONTH AND LOSE 30 LBS. TODAY I AM DOING GREAT IF I STAY IN MY CALORIE RANGE OF 1500 AND USUALLY I AM EXERCISING AT 10P SO I CAN ADD MORE CALORIES TO MY COUNTER. UGGH. IT'S SO TOUGH. I HAVE HAD MANY OBSTACLES AND INSTEAD OF SAYING, I STINK, I JUST CAN'T DO THIS, I AM GOING TO SAY, WOW, LOOK, YOUR NOT GIVING UP AND YOU ARE GOING TO GET THIS. LOL. AND I WILL. I HOPE I DONT HAVE TO REWRITE THIS BEGINING AGAIN. TO GOOD HEALTH.. :)

TODAY IS A NEW DAY AND I AM GOING TO LIVE IT. I AM 45 YEARS OLD AND I WEIGH 257LBS. I HAVE BEEN A PLUS SIZE FOR MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE. IT ALL REALLY STARTED AFTER I HAD MY SECOND CHILD. I NEVER TOOK OFF THE EXTRA 60 AND JUST CONTINUED GOING UP. I ALSO FELL INTO A WORLD OF EASY TO PREPARE FOODS FROM THE FROZEN FOOD SECTION IN MY GROCERY STORE AND A COMPANY CALLED SCHWANS THAT DELIVERS QUICK AND OOEY, GOOEY PREPARED FOODS RIGHT TO MY DOOR. I ALSO HAVE ALWAYS TURNED TO FOOD FOR COMFORT EVEN SINCE I WAS LITTLE. I REMEMBER SNEAKING FOOD INTO MY ROOM AT NIGHT BUT AT THAT TIME I WAS INTO GYMNASTICS AND RUNNING SO I BURNED IT OFF. NOT ANYMORE. I WAS IN A TERRIBLE CAR ACCIDENT WHEN I WAS 19 AND HAVE HAD MANY SURGERIES TO MY JOINTS SINCE. I JUST HAD A KNEE REPLACEMENT IN FEBUARY OF 2013. I HAVE MEDICAL ISSUES SUCH AS FIBROMYALGIA, ARTHRITIS, AND STOMACH PROBLEMS SUCH AS IBS, AND I HAVE FLARE UPS OF DIVERTICULITIS WHICH IS AN INFECTION OF THE INTESTIN AND VERY PAINFUL. I AM SO HEAVY AND IN LOTS OF PAIN. I HAVE MIS PLACED MY MOTAVATION AND TRYING DESPERATELY TO FIND IT. I HAVE LOTS OF PLANS BUT IT'S BEEN A HURDLE FOR ME TO FOLLOW THROUGH. WHEN THINGS COME UP OR MONEY IS TIGHT, OR I DONT' FEEL GOOD, I USE THESE THINGS AS AN EXCUSE TO GIVE UP. NOT TODAY. TODAY I AM GOING TO FACE MYSELF HEAD ON. I AM GOING TO FIGHT THE INNER DEMONS. THE FIRST STEP IS TO SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. I AM SEEING.. :) NEXT STEP IS TO MAKE SOME CHANGES. THIS IS NOT GOING TO COME EASY BECAUSE I AM SET IN MY WAYS. I THINK FAILING HAS BECOME A PART OF MY MAKEUP AND THAT REALLY SCARES ME. I GIVE UP ON MYSELF AND PUT MYSELF LAST. I AM READING THE SPARK SOLUTIONS AND GETTING READY TO FOLLOW THE CHALLENGE THAT STARTS TOMORROW 6/24 AND I AM SO EXCITED. I HAVE THE FIRST BOOK THE SPARK, BUT I HAVE GOTTEN EVEN MORE OUT OF THIS SECOND BOOK. I CAN DO THIS EVEN IF I DON'T HAVE LOTS OF MONEY,EVEN IF I DON'T DO IT PERFECTLY, EVEN IF I HAVE SLIPS. IT'S OKAY. I CAN JUST START OVER ANYTIME. I AM REALLY SEEING FOR THE FIRST TIME THAT OBSTACLES WILL ALWAYS BE THERE. THAT'S LIFE. BUT I NEED TO MOVE THROUGH THEM AND NOT GET STUCK IN THEM.

Personal Information:
Hello, My name is Allie and I am happily married. I currently struggle with fibromyalgia, depression, and arthritis in my low back and a few other spots. I know losing weight will benefit me in so many ways but I have struggled with my poor eating habits. I am not going to give up.

Other Information:
I am a self help guru. Love my self-help books, (Louise Hay is one of my favorite authors.) I learn a little from each.
I love the ocean & try to go as often as I can. I love children, animals, & nature. I love life. Now, I just need to start living it instead of viewing it.

Good choices one by one are so much easier to do than promising to "be perfect" from now on. chris

Keep looking for positive successes. The scale can be a tool or it can be the enemy and certainly for me it bounces back and forth. Giving up the "diet" mentality has helped me so much. Instead I am focusing on positive choices. If I choose well then I am succeeding and when I don't choose well then I try and figure out why. I liked that when you felt low you jumped on the bike or went to post on teams. Good choices. Just one choice at a time and the side effect is eventually your body will learn to trust you and release the weight.
