Weekend success!

Monday, August 18, 2008

This is the first weekend that I did not blow it with my "diet." I think that part is starting to get a little easier for me. Hubby and I even got together with a group of our friends from church on Friday night and I still did okay. Luckily there were veggies and fruit among other things. I should have been the one bringing that type of food but nope I made brownies and little smokies wrapped in crescent rolls. I told myself that was for the kids! LOL Guess I should quit bringing stuff I wouldn't eat myself. Never really thought about it until right now but that is kinda bad. Hubby and the girls did eat some of it though...I'll have to think about that one. I should probably quit over analizing. This was meant to be positive so I'm going to keep it that way! I'm starting to feel like I can do this thing they call a lifestyle change!

    WAY TO GO!!!!!! I have yet to not "blow it" on a weekend. We took the kids to the fair this weekend and I resisted the elephant ear, but caved on a piece of frozen cheesecake dipped in chocolate and rolled in peanuts - YIKES!! I give you a high five, two thumbs up, and all the kudos in the world!! Way to set the example emoticon

The power of kindness

Friday, August 15, 2008

I have been through some emotional stuff this week and was starting to question myself. And then today completely unrelated to my situation this week a delivery of a beatuful thank you balloon and willow tree angel came from my sweet friend Carrie Dawn with a card that she had wrote "You're the best". If you read this Carrie (she is also a sparker) I love you!! You have no idea what your act of kindness did for me today. And then my sweet friend Alanna gave me a spark goodie teddy bear! If you read this Alanna (also a fellow sparker) Thank you! I love you and we've never even met...maybe someday we will! I'm blogging about this so I remember that I do have some good friends that love me the way I am. And even though I've had an upsetting week today is a brighter day!! I know this isn't a weight blog, but I wanted to remember the way I felt today and remind myself that it is okay to be me and I actually have friends that love me because of who I am!

My wedding ring is getting looser!

Thursday, August 14, 2008

I'm so excited! My wedding ring is starting to get looser. I can actually take it off and on! It has been stuck on my finger for the past two years. I've lost 7 lbs which isn't a bunch, but it's made a difference in my fingers anyway! LOL I've been really excited today. I just feel like this time I'm going to do it. I have had a few thoughts like "Wendy...it's just 7 lbs not 17 or 27 just 7" but I still can't help but feel excited!! I hope I can keep that momentum going. I changed my ticker to a present today...that's what losing this weight is going to be...the best present I can give myself and my family. I have been so down in the dumps off and on for awhile and as much as I'm ashamed to say it's made me act very ugly at times. It makes me mad that I would allow myself to be so crabby and hateful to the ones I love all because I'm feeling terrible about myself. My poor family doesn't deserve it. I'm really going to try to keep this positive energy going and try to treat my family like the loves of my life that they are.

  Great job Wendy! Seven pounds is 7 pounds. I'd be happy with that so just run with it!! Keep up the good work!

    Hi Wendy,

I can so relate! Just today I had to retire my wedding rings to my jewellery box. They are soooo loose I was afraid I would lose them. Thankfully I had a cheapie band that fits quite nicely and looks like a wedding band. When I'm at goal I shall have my wedding rings resized. No point in doing that now. :)

Congrats on making the decision to get healthy and lose the unwanted pounds. You have made a good start. I've know you've heard it before but just take one day at a time and stay focused. Don't let anything or anyone cause you to stumble. You will succeed if you continue to do what you are doing now.

Keep looking up,
