Summer 2015

It's summer time ! I am in the zone ! I'm learning to stop eating when I'm getting that feeling of fullness.

I am now mindful of when my stomach is getting to the point of feeling full and then just before that I stop eating, no matter what's on my plate, no matter where I'm eating at.

I also do NOT eat at the all you can eat places. Yes the prices are great BUT it's way to much of a temptation to overeat and using whatever feeling I'm feeling at that time to just eat ...
It's summer time ! I am in the zone ! I'm learning to stop eating when I'm getting that feeling of fullness.

I am now mindful of when my stomach is getting to the point of feeling full and then just before that I stop eating, no matter what's on my plate, no matter where I'm eating at.

I also do NOT eat at the all you can eat places. Yes the prices are great BUT it's way to much of a temptation to overeat and using whatever feeling I'm feeling at that time to just eat two to three plates of crap.

I have also cut out people who are negative to my new lifestyle and it's working. I have a lot of support here and in my family. I'd have to say that my beautiful smart granddaughter Kimberleigh is my greatest supporter next to her dad, my gorgeous son. And I'm blessed to have them both in my life.

I still live in a volatile home life but I'm picking out the good about it and that's how I'm able to deal with this in my daily life and it's working. I'm getting to a happy place at least for half of a day when my other half is at work. When he's home I just smile and keep up with the cooking and the cleaning of the apartment. This way the situation is at least partially healthy.

The stress has caused slight damage to one of my heart muscles so says my heart specialist and he suggests my moving out or getting rid of my other half. I have no where else to live that I can afford so I practice a healthy life as I've said above. So far so good.

I know that one day I'll be in a place with minimum negativity, my own home. Thanks for the support Spark friends !

Congratulations on your weigh-in results. My weigh-in is in an hour, and I had a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde week, so I'm trying to prepare myself to keep the long journey in mind! No matter what the results are this week, I mostly ate healthy, nutritious food and I exercised several times, so it is still a victory. But I'd be full of it if I didn't admit that it feels much more victorious when the scale goes down.
