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.

In the 150's

Saturday, March 30, 2013

Finally made in the 150's. Only 18 lbs to my goal weight. and 4 lbs to short goal (that is by my 60th birthday on May 5th). 30 1/2 lbs gone I never thought I could do it. The greatest feeling ever.
"nothing taste as good as skinny feels" I have to give all the credit to all the motivation and support that I have gotten here at sparkpeople, it has made me feel accountable for me. I want everyone to feel how I have been feeling lately, It is so exciting and refreshing to have the energy, the strenght to take on challenges that I have never thought I could because I was so overweight and depressed. I love sparkpeople and I hope everyone does or will feel excitement and the accomplishment that I feel. Just keep sparking, because it is the best feeling in the world.... emoticon

down 30 lbs

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I can't believe that I have lost 30lbs for sooooo long I struggled I thought that I was going to be FAT for the rest of my life until sparkpeople... so much has happened to me in the last week. I went to the doctor and her nurse weight me and was so happy she was jumping up and down in delight and screaming on how proud she was of me, and when my doctor came in she was reading my chart and said " I was wondering why you looked so different" . My blood work was the best it has been in years I even got off one of my blood pressure meds. I went shopping with my daughter and took clothes into the dressing room and they all fit. I could not believe it. I was telling my other daughter who lives out of town about it (who has not seen me since Christmas and is coming home this week) said a saying to me NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS SKINNY FEELS,, that is my new motivational saying because it is true... emoticon

    Ignore the emoticon! Take measurements, judge by how your clothes are fitting. Check your sodium, too. This is sometimes a problem.

And, like BlueNose said, mix up your workouts. Are you strength training? That can help a LOT, also.

  Time to start mixing things up with your workouts! Also your body fat is turning into muscle and in time it will even itself out....keep doing the basics.....drink the water, eat protein and carb together. Also add in some new exercises that challenge your body and change the days you work out to kick start your body.

Don't worry, it will happen but it takes time and that maybe longer than a couple of months, DON"T BE DISCOURAGED as it happens to all of us on the journey as it is how our body works

  Weight gains happen even when you do everything right. Don't worry about it too much unless you keep gaining. Cutting back on exercise may explain it. You may need to adjust your caloric intake a bit.
