Dr. Orders

Thursday, March 28, 2013

The last time I went to the DR. he had told me that I had to lose 20 lbs. I weight 178 and that was in Aug of 2012. I now weigh 161 lbs! I only have 3 more lbs to go but I'm not going to stop there! My ultimate goal is to get 150! I would be so excited!

You can do it.

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I have a friend that I work with that is a mother of 6 whom of which her oldest is my age. Her mom was a health nut and died of cancer. She is very overweight and struggles with self image. She was trying nutrisystem which is all packaged foods and not the healthiest choices. She has tried weight watchers and didn't like it. She has turned to me for advice and help on getting a grip on my image and weight loss. She seems skeptical about eating clean and exercise. I reminded her that not everything works for everyone and she has tried everything else. She has 4 grand babies and I asked her "wouldn't it be nice to run with them?" She said it would. I have learned that there is so much resentment against her mother that until she addresses the baggage, I don't think that she would ever lose the weight and enjoy the awesome beautiful person I see!

She is going to be joining a gym and going to try it my way. We'll see! But I have faith in her! She can do it!

Look at your clothes

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I've posted before that when I look in a mirror I see no difference in the way I look. My clothes are getting bigger. A size 16 to 12 is a huge difference.

I've been thinking about it. Everything that we say is "smaller" than something is because we have something in mind to compare it too. When I look at myself I don't have another bigger me standing next to me to compare to.

Looking at the way my clothes fit is definitely evidence enough. To over come the perspective of lack of change I have to remember I have a different perspective of my body. The only true way to notice is to take pictures and measure my body. This to me logically speaking is one reason why people have eating disorders. You don't see changes in yourself and you keep comparing your loss to that of others and therefore not seeing/feeling confident about it.

Take pictures and measurements and you will see a difference. The evidence matters. Don't give up.

    I definitely agree!!! The scale is NOT your friend! Going by old picutres, clothes and measurements is the best indication!

Had an amazing weekend! Went on a hike with my Husband and dog. Its the first time I've ever been able to keep up and not need to really stop. We stopped for water and not exhaustion. I feel so good! We got a lot done too!

Hubby and I went clearance shopping and I bought another size 12 pants b/c i have 3 pairs of pants I can wear without them falling off. :) I haven't weighed myself lately but I've been working on toning and muscle building so I know that its not going to be completely accurate. :) But I know the last time I weighed myself it was 172. I blame that on only working out 30min instead of an hour. I hope to change that as I get more comfortable with my schedule and routine. :)

God Is good!

    It's a great feeling when you can look back on your day and feel proud of the little things that you accomplished. Keep up the good work.

God is Good!

Friday, March 01, 2013

God has answered my prayers! We have accepted a position a local college in dining services. I started this past wed. I love it! It has been such a God send. On the other side, the are expecting the world from me so the pressure is on. I don't want to disappoint anyone. I am just going to keep falling on my knees in prayer and Give all I have, even if it kills me!

On a different note. Despite my exhaustion I'm still hitting the "gym" and leaving it all on the mat! God is good! All the time!
