    Me too! I'm also pushing for the lower 160's by the end of July and a total of 50 lost by the time I turn 50 (which is in just under 6 months). We can do this! emoticon

How do you all reset?

Thursday, June 27, 2013

So here is how my day goes from time to time- I wake up and do great- Then lunch happens and I mess up- or I choose to eat something that I know is going to be no help to my goal of being 150 before I die ;) ........ then I am like- OH THE HELL WITH IT I will just start over tomorrow! Now, that makes me crazy b/c I know that I just need to refocus- How do you all do that- help :)

    We all have ups and downs in our journey to healthy.
I read an article that said when you are truly ready to lose the weight, you will make a habit and stick to it. I also ready that if you do too much too fast, then you burn yourself out and that's why you don't keep up with your good habits. It's best to change little things, one thing at a time. It takes 12 weeks to make something a habit on average.

    It is hard, but I try to remember that its more about my calories for the week/month. So if I blew it on lunch then I can't keep eating too much because I'll be in a deficit for tomorrow. Having said that, it doesn't always work, but it does sometimes.

    How did I miss that you were back on Spark? It must have been during my mini-break. It's good to see you around, again. Anyway...

First thing is that I eat pretty much constantly. I don't ever really allow myself to get hungry because that's when I'm more likely to say f* it and eat whatever tickles my fancy. Also, I don't know what your problem foods are, but I have issues with sweet stuff. So, I make sure to work sweet things into my day. Some of my go-to sweets include flavored almonds, Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter, hot tea with cream and Splenda, fruit (especially apples), and Fiber One bars. Then, you just have to make the committment to take it one meal at a time. Every time you eat, make the effort to consciously decide what you are going to eat. Own your choice...no matter what it is. Take back your power and let go of the guilt that you are feeling, because it only makes it harder.

Pouring it out.......my heart......

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

Well, I am just all about blogging the last few days- I have had so many emotions pouring out of me that I just have to put them somewhere- so basically, I found out that a lady that my husband has been working with for a long time- who I had SERIOUS reservations about- turned out to be a villain to my family- I cannot tell you how many conversations that my hubby and I had- and I told him....I do no trust her.....I dont know why- I just dont- he assured me that I needed to squash it- that it was all in my head- turns out it was SO not in my head- He abruptly quit working for her about 6 months ago- he told me that it was over some money/ hours breakdown (he is a contractor and she is an interior designer- who hired him to help on jobs she was working on)........she is single, after being divorced twice- and she has no kids, nothing to do but owrk, make money, remodel her home, take care of her dogs....etc etc etc.......well, my husband and I went on a marriage retreat last weekend- and while we have a great marriage and an amazing relationship- I could just tell that he had been struggling with something and finally this weekend he set me down and told me that she had been begging him to leave me and our 2 little girls for months- and finally she waited until everyone left one day and went after him- I am so upset- I want to hunt her down and just take her in my hands- but I have been reaching out to my girls for advice and comfort- and trying to realize that there is nothing else to be done- my husband did all that needed to be done- he just walked away- I wish that he would have left her sooner :( that kind of breaks my heart- but now I am left with all of these emotions- he waited 6 months to tell me- he said that he knew he had to tell me, but he knew what a hard time I would have with it- and he jsut wanted to wait until he felt like it was the right time- so now that all this time has passed- it is somewhat old news to him- not that he is taking it lightly, but to me it is like it happened yesterday- I do have to throw in the inevitable- and I am sure that you all can identify with this- she has a great body- no scars from babies- no stratch marks- no nothing- and now, with the info that my hubby has given me- I know that she made sure that he saw all of her before he even had a chance to register everything- it makes me want to cry thinking of all my loose hanging skin- and the thoughts that there is no comparison- God, I am crying my eyes out right now- how could someone do this to my family? To my babies? To top it all off, my husband is one of the sweetest nost caring people that you will ever meet- that being said, I know that we have passed by her a couple of times and they have waved to each other- and said hi in passing- of course, I have to be honest...not sure how I will handle it if I ever lay eyes on her- but I want him to hate her as much as I do- to know that she tried to ruin not only my life but my babies- I am sorry- I just had to get the poison out!!

    Women and some men like this are the scourge of the earth. I lost my Husband to one of these evil witches, she put it out there, and he was weak. They lasted 3 years with 1 child, she left him and the child. He has also been married 4 times. I chose to not remarry after we split up.
Anyway, you are one lucky woman to have the strong husband you do, because it's very hard for the weak ones, when these Black Widows are searching for the weakest of men.
Your marriage is strong, keep the faith, and trust your Husband, he came to you and told you what was happening. Most would not.

    I have to say I was amazed to read this. You are such a beautiful woman and I can understand why your husband chose you. Your beautiful, your honest, you are caring, and your all around amazing. She obviously couldn't do half the things that you have. She a very weak and pathetic woman to try and go after a married man. She obviously doesn't think much of herself if she is looking get a married man. I bet you she is only doing it to make herself feel good. I am sure she hates herself. Your husband obviously loves you dearly. Men just for some reason like us can't see when the opposite sex is attracted to them but the same sex can. No worries hon it will get better because you have a beautiful and strong family! emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and friending me. I think all these women below my comment have excellent things to say. He chose YOU. He got honest though it took time and he walked away from a bad situation. That woman was trouble. Though I know you're so torn up inside about this, I know you're strong woman and can make it through this. Try not to dwell on the what-ifs and stay in the present moment...where you have a beautiful family that was not destroyed by some piss-poor passerby. Depression and anxiety are deceiving and tell us to worry and fret over things that have happened and things that might happen when really we just have the stay in the moment and breathe. You are poised and faithful. Believe you will get through this and talk out your feelings with someone you trust.

    Don't let this ruin your marriage. Be careful that you don't talk about this with hubby while children might hear. Get past this and time will heal some of those wounds. Hubby was smart enough to recognize the danger in this woman and get awayfrom her. Good for him!

    first, i think it's great that your husband was honest with you, even though it took so long. second, props to him for rejecting her and getting himself out of the situation. a lot of guys aren't that strong. now, for you! you're a million times better than this woman! you repect yourself enough to not go after someone elses man. you are strong and motivated, as your stretch marks, etc indicate. and most of all, you're not selfish like her. she's obviously very sad and lonely and unhappy with her own life. that is no excuse to try to ruin you and your family's happy life. keep your chin up and lean on your husband. use this to make your relationship stronger. it may take a while, but you will come out happier and stronger once you weather the storm together. be honest with him! let him know it upsets you that they still have contact, not matter how little. his job is to make you not doubt him or lose trust in him.

    Wow, I'd want to "take her down" if I ever saw her. (Our womenly instincts are usually always right!) Your husband obviously loves you and walked away from her and the job. That says a lot about him and his dedication to your family.

To me she is the worst kind of person. She may "look good" on the outside, but she is pure ugly inside! Others see through such people! Besides, stretch marks and "saggy skin" are badges of honor for us moms!

Hang in there! Remember that your husband already "chose" you when he married you and he "chose" you again!!! You should feel great about that! emoticon

P.S. You are beautiful!

2nd day- making it count too!!!!

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

You know, I have always heard that the hardest day is the first day- I have struggled with an eating disorder that really only one person in my life knows about- and I am trying so hard to just be on auto pilot this week with all other things in my life- and turn my main focus to my food and exactly what I am putting into my mouth- I need- and I AM (LYNN) getting back to the "safe" place for me- I am having a kick start week to help me focus just on the calories - not worrying about what it is that I think that I want to eat- but just making sure I do what it is that I know I am supposed to do.......................................I
t is so hard when you LOVE food- I mean, I seriously love it....I love the smell, the texture, the taste.............so, the first day back for me is CRAZY hard- but I did it yesterday! Day 2 is here- and I have conquered! I am so excited- I know that when I start feeling and seeing the results- my motivation will gain speed and I will be back in the drivers seat once again-

***Thanks sparklers for taking the time to read my blog- I am in serious need of some encouragement right now- I have a serious weekend- that as I said before, absolutely spun me for a loop- things are fine, they are going to be fine- but I just have to work through all of these emotions on my own and of course with the help of the good Lord above- and without the help of food-

Thanks again for taking the time to read me :)
