Long time since my last blog

Saturday, October 05, 2013

I have lost 45lbs but I have been stuck for a bout a month still tracking still working out for at least an hour a day with 2 days of rest in the week. I know alot has been going on in my life that if it wasn't for spark people I'd be right back up to near 200lbs. But reading the articles and tracking and even working out yes working out has really helped my stress levels. I have been maintaining this weight but not loosing it has been alittle frustrating, but maybe once the STRESS (worry) of my life goes away, the weight will start coming off too. But again I am so grateful to all the wonderful blogs, articles, quotes and videos that have kept me sane during this time in my journey. Way to go sparkfriends. emoticon

Again another plateau, so very frustrating. I am doing all the right stuff. But now I think I may have to add calories, and this is so hard for me I DON'T WHAT TO GAIN WEIGHT! I have come to far almost 40lbs give or take a half a pound,depending on the week. This is probably the hardest thing I have to do. I am feeling like I am losing the get up and go, I have done new DVD's, worked out for more than an hour a few extra days a week given my body a couple of rest days, ate more protein, but nothing seems to be working, HELP. If anyone has any suggestion please let me know. Sparkpeople has been so great and I can't and won't lose my motivation...... emoticon

    I am going through a series of plateaus and it is frustrating when they occur. Hang in there! Just keep doing the right things.

what made me join sparkpeople? for a long time I was looking to join weight watchers (just did not have an extra $10 a week) so one day I went into my yahoo mail account and there was a blurb about the best online weight loss program, and I read it and it was sparkpeople I went on the site and joined but I was not active until about 2 weeks later, and after that I was hooked, I felt great started loosing weight from the beginning,lost 3 lbs my first week, and I have almost constantly lost at least a pound a week, with the exception of the time I hit a plateau an I emailed my coach and he helped me through it and I lost 2 lbs the next week. I try to challenge my self daily by either drinking alittle bit more water and or by working out by 5 minutes more a day. I am up to at least 1 hour a day, my next feat is to start running I have already did the walk-run at the track and ran 3/4 of a mile and walked 2 miles. I feel that sparkpeople saved my life.
I make recipes from Sparkpeople alot My favorite is the Kale with chirzo and beans, I love anything with Kale.
I can't say that I have an favorite motivational tip but I must say that drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day does help with hunger pains and craving.
My goal for this week is just to continue on my path of eating healthy and working out regular and keep tracking and keep getting that extra push I get from going on the sparkpeople site. This is my rock, My path to a better me (a weight loss of 37 1/2 lbs since the middle of September with 12 more to go to hit my goal, from a size 16-18 to a size 10) I love sparkpeople.

Haven't blogged in a long time

Saturday, May 11, 2013

I have a hard time blogging I am not sure what to say or what to talk about. I have been doing very very well with the help of Sparkpeople and all the little motivational blogs I have a hard time letting people know (I feel like I am bragging and that was always a sign that I was selfish). I am not being selfish I have lost a total of 37lbs since the middle of September. That is an amazing feet for me. I thought I was going to be FAT for the rest of my life. I still see myself at 191 and when I go clothes shopping (because all my summer clothes are huge) I still grab bigger sizes and I am shocked that I need a size 10. I never would of been able to do this if I didn't find Sparkpeople.

My journey has been awesome, there were great mountains that I had to climb, and paths that I strolled by just admiring the scenery. But I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I can not wait to see what is still ahead of me on his journey I still have about 15 more pounds to loose, and I know you all will be there to help me through it as I will be there for all of you. You are my skates on a downhill path. Thanks fellow Sparks. emoticon emoticon

    Don't be afraid to share. Think about the kind of blogs you like to read.

For me, I like to read the ones that share what is REALLY going on on the journey. I don't care if the journey resembles mine, I always find something interesting to reflect on that helps me understand something I'm dealing with now, an unsolved mystery, or i file it away for future reference. I'm doing that now with ideas for maintenance. Still a ways to go but that is now my source for nightmares, since I've never been successful with maintaining weight loss.

For me for writing blogs, some are just a recording of what's happening on this journey. Some record, or advertise, my progress on working to change to new habits, partly to hold me accountable, but also to have a record later. And other blogs are sharing some neon-bulb flashing insight which has just hit me that just might benefit someone else. I stifle thoughts that everyone else probably already knows that. But then I remember that it was something I didn't know or understand about the journey or myself, and that means that there is someone else coming along who HASN'T figured it out yet.

An then there are the rants about what the food manufacturers and advertisers are doing to all of us, but especially, ME!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your body image still being back at the old weight. I have a little bit different problem, and I wrote a recent blog about it, also. I've lost 55 pounds and I can pick out something that fits my frame by looking at it on the hangar in the store. But sitting here in the chair working on my laptop, I still FEEL physically the same size as I was last August before any weight loss.

That "bragging" you're worried about is a well-earned right. I think it's a required part of the process of beginning to recognize the new you.
