Transformation, there and back

Friday, January 27, 2012

For my BLC-18 team we have to write a blog on our transformation.

I used to feel like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders, when I was at my heaviest. Being on Sparkpeople, I learned that no matter how old you are, you can make a difference.

I'm 4'8" and at my heaviest 113 lbs. My gyn told me I had to lose to at least 102. I knew this was possible because I did it before.

On May 30, 2009, I was 94 lbs. I was at my skinniest ever, felt good and trim. My thighs were at their skinniest ever as was my rear. I was making good progress on my arms, too.

I'd put in an hour on the treadmill listening to my music as I walked, I'd put in time for strength training. I only wish I could find my notebook with all my info from back then.

Then, I had to visit up north for almost a month...no treadmill...no bike.. lost motivation. I did have weights and a thighmaster (still have it :-} ) I even took some video tapes. I didn't have the time I had at home.

I had gone up north to help my mom pack up and move down with me. We had to go through everything, pack up what she wanted, figure out and tag what she wanted to sell...mainly all her furniture.

Imagine having to give up your house and almost all your belongings to move to someone else's house. But, I digress.

I lost most of my motivation and when I came back home, I didn't have the time and didn't put much into what time I had. I ended up going right 'back' to the person with the weight on her shoulders.

I gained back the weight and inches and lost the pride I had in myself for what I had achieved.

I never got back to being that person...yet...but I have hopes and trying to get that determination back. I just don't put the time in that is needed, but I know I want to get back to 'there' with the skinny thighs and butt.

    You know you can do it you have done it before. Just get the mind set and you can do anything.

    You can do it!! It's all about getting back to that mentality you were at before. I know I am having the same problem right now...hopefully sooner rather than later.

If you are from another country, what was your slang of the 80s?

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

It would be interesting to know what your slang was like where you live. Much different from the USA slang?

    Courti they were way different for the UK.
Fag = cigerette
Jelly sandwich = cop (their cars were white, red stripe, white)
Bird = hot girl
Pony Boy = wild and cool guy
And that is all I can remember..........ha

    Thanks. My BLC team is doing the 80s so I was curious about other countries. I know a lot of actors come from Canada. You give us the actors, we give you the shows. :-}

    Canada gets much of it's TV from the US so your slang became our slang ..... Although I was working days and did not have any way to record the show back then, so I really did not know what any of the slang words meant!

Like, oh my gosh, that is so tubular!!!

This week's theme on my BLC-18 is 'The 80s'!!

Here's some sites for the lingo.

Here's a little quiz of tv shows, fill in the blank. (you have a box at the top of the quiz where you type the answers and if it is correct, it'll automatically go into that question, you can skip by just typing answers to the next one. I didn't get to all of them before time ran out, but I skipped ahead to the ones I knew.
Good luck.
