November 1st

Saturday, November 01, 2008

So, its November 1st & Halloween wasn't as bad as it could've been for me. With the endless supplies of all types of treats & the rare occasion of tricks, I remembered our goals. So to me this is only the beginning of change for me. I ate more healthy foods yesterday than unhealthy. I have a bag of leftover sweets left but I stood on the scale & I haven't lost anything but then again, I haven't gained either. So I want to vow to recommit to my healthy goals & boost my physical endurance. I have been a lazy bum lately but have enjoyed the workouts that I have finished. I make everyday, a new beginning for me. What are your daily goals? I look forward to all comments!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog and way to go, on resisting those treats. I love your spark page, very inspirational.
We can do this, thru God all things are possible, we just need to ask for it.

May God bless you with strength and determination on this weight loss trial.

    I'm glad you didn't give in to temptation! I luckily was working Halloween night so I wasn't around candy. It's one of my weaknesses! Maybe we can be buddies and help each other out. Hope you had a wonderful day today and see you on the skinny side!

What's A Perfect Size?

Monday, October 13, 2008

Where does the media get off saying that Cheryl Burton a perfect size 4 with a realistic (curvy) body that she's getting fat?! I love her body for her but if she's fat, then I must be obese?! I know I still carry many pounds around but the fact of the matter that we in America must become realistic with a size that will make us happy. I know I wouldn't mind being a size 6 but I'm cool with an 8. What's your perfect size?

  I think thin is as beautiful as curvy. I know there are a lot of "curvy empowerment" women out there, but lets not forget the little guys born tiny with big hearts and minds too. They call me small yet mighty and I love my bony little bottom! I have been a size 6 with boobs but felt like I was walking too heavily for my taste and I've also been a size zero and felt oddly insubstantial. I sit right now at a 3. Mind you these are all according to American department stores whereas in Taiwan I'm considered a Medium instead of an extra small. And don't even get me started on the EU sizes and weight measurements they say what they are equivalent to in the US, and it never adds up. Numbers are just that. Numbers. Who really cares as long as your not a bitch. ;-)

    The perfect size to me is a nine. I was a size nine and I liked my shape. I was curvaceous and fit. I won't want to get so skinny that I look under nourished or bony. I want to look healthy and stacked. (smile)

    Lol, leave it to the media! I think they want all of us women to look like twelve year old boys!! So many little girls are worried about their weight these days and I blame a lot of that on the media! I'm deeply saddened and troubled by it! That being said, my average size is 3 because I am VERY small boned. Right now I am about a 5, and even though I look small, I also look soft. My fiancée works in the film industry and he's telling me that producers are starting to require actresses to gain weight! I'm so happy about that. I hope this boy thin craze passes soon! It's not even attractive! Curves are BEAUTIFUL!! It's what separates us from the boys, after all!

    When I first starting losing weight (before sp) I wore a size 20. Now I am a 14 I am pleased but because of health reasons I have to keep losing. Not because I want to be a size 4 of 6. Shoot I was a size 10 when I first got married. But after kids etc I am near 50. I would be pleased with a size healthier. If it is a 10 or 12 I will be happy with that. America concentrates on the outwards appearance too much. We also should concentrate on the inside too. I have come across some beautiful people but when they opened their mouth they became UGLY! I would rather be a beauty within that seeps to the outward.

    You have to be freaking kidding me that they said that!!!!! She is a FIT, FIT, FIT woman! I know that you guys have seen her dancing her @ss off on Dancing With the Stars!!!!! The people probably saying that she is fat are probably not happy with their size! This is teaching our daughters to hate their bodies. My seven year old was crying the other day and I asked her why and she replied,"Because my stomach is too big." I almost FAINTED. We have to watch what our girls hear. The media is ridiculous!!!!

The way that I am built, I think that I look my best at a size 4. I am a 6 now, but my belly/waist/whole midsection area needs LOTS of work!

    I have no clue what my "perfect size" is, but currently a 8. I think a 4, for my height and frame, will be where I land. I'm the same height as Toni Braxton, 5'2" (but I think she's too skinny).

    Hey Dee,
I get really annoyed when the media starts going on about celebraties who have great figures, but the media say they are fat. No wonder there is so many adults and kids with eating disorders.

My ideal size would be ( UK) 8-10, thats what i was pre-babies.

Do You Embrace Your Beauty?!

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

I always ponder this very question. Do I embrace my beauty? Some times I do feel beautiful but no in the beauty that is Alicia Keys or Beyonce. I mean they always seem to appear flawless & even with flaws they seem to shine. I hate that I lose weight in my chest area & thigh area before my waist! So this hinders that beauty in the eye of the beholder. My husband thinks I am super beautiful!! But when I peer into the eyes of this person staring back at me, I question my beauty. I am VERY grateful for that I do not have any facial deformities & that my skin with the exception of few age spot can be smooth & pretty. Some times men & women look at me but it only makes me feel self conscious. So to feel up to par, I put on something that I like to think helps enhance my features. I have several outfits that seem to propel me to the top of the world! So on those days when I am feeling below average & I need a boost: I do my most gut wrenching exercise dvd, take a shower, do a mini facial, get out my favorite perfume & put on my fabulous outfit & BAM!! I'm not quite Alicia or Mia or Queen Latifah but I'm feel fantabulous!!

So how bout you?

    I think you are gorgeous! I, for one, do not tend to embrace my beauty. In fact, most of the time I think I only see the flaws. I think I will try some of your strategies and maybe if I treat myself like I am beautiful...I will soon believe it.

    Hey Dee!

You look beautiful to me! Inside and out. I feel you though. I really do. I have to think about how God thinks of me or I get caught up in this world's standard of beauty, which is narrow in every way. :)

    Here lately I have been letting myself go. I don't have the energy to beautify myself. I use to care about my appearance when I had the right figure. But nothing fits right now, I am 50 lbs heavier, and I hate going clothes shopping. I can't wait to get my body back. People tell how pretty I am and I be like what are you talking about, I do not look nothing like use to look. It seems like only old men, lesbians, and married men look my way. I don't have a problem with neither group but I know I can do a whole lot better than that. Even when I fix myself up, I still don't feel right. I just want to be me again. I look at my old pictures and fantasize. I use to be beautiful. I gotten to the point to where I do not want to look in the mirror.
Everybody has flaws and we tryto hide behind makeup and fashionable clothes but when everything comes off what do we really see.

    I agree with Kathy and that true beauty lies within... but let me comment on what you are saying in your blog. I truly do embrace my beauty. I never wanted to look any differently... and was kind of shocked that I looked fat when I saw that photo in the newspaper. Perhaps I'm egotistical; although, I don't think so. I think it has to do with what Kathy says about inner beauty. For the most part, I'm a good person, and I look good.

I would have to say that I'm a little shocked to read this blog from you, as I would have to agree with your husband. You are a very beautiful woman. That combined with what I know about you makes you shine with beauty. I agree that, yes, I'd like to lose my waist before my chest and booty, but... that doesn't make us any less beautiful. God doesn't do ugly, each of us has our own unique beauty... even identical twins are not really identical. So, although I don't look like someone who society says is beautiful, it's for that very reason that I am beautiful and so are you.

    Do I embrace my beauty? As of late I have looked in the mirror and not liked what I have seen as far as strives are concerned with exercise. Yet, to be honest, when I look in the mirror that is only the length that allows me to see my face I feel really pretty; especially around the guy in my life (that's always good).

Either way I loved reading your blog and thinking about it all. I will also say that as much as I love Beyonce's look, especially her abs, I now know enough that she has a lot of people helping her with it along the way. Maybe if I had people, I could look the same. Hmmm, maybe I should get

Thanks, Dee, for the insight... emoticon

    Boy do I know how you feel. Being in the military, which expects you to basically be a guy, doesn't help your self esteem any, but you know sometimes I look in the mirror and think "Damn you're a hottie!" On those days theres nothing that can keep me down. emoticon

I know you already know this BUT beauty isn't what you see with your eyes but what you see with your soul, you obviously are filled with beauty, I know you are speaking of how we look at our face in the mirror and believe me with hair disappearing on me at age 51 I have to have self talks too but I do thank god daily for the inner life I have, I am not quite positive that the visual beauties are quite as happy as me : )

    I often look in the mirror and get upset with what is looking back at me.
But your right it's amazing how good you can feel by doing a good workout, having a shower, putting on your make-up and outfit that makes you feel a bit more confident.

Keep it up girlfriend you've got the right attitude and you are an inspiration to us all.

25 Tips for A Better Life!!

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

1. Take a 10-30 minute walk every day. And while you walk, smile.
It is the ultimate anti-depressant.

2. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
Buy a lock if you have to.

3. When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement,
'My purpose is to________ today.'

4. Eat more foods that grow on plants, and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.

5. Drink green tea and plenty of water. Eat blueberries, wild Alaskan
salmon, broccoli, almonds & walnuts.

6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.

7. Don't waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of
the past, negative thoughts or things you cannot control.
Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.

8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid with a maxed out charge card.

9. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

10. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.

11. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

12. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

13. Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.

14. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

15. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

16. Frame every so-called disaster with these words:
'In five years, will this matter?'

17. Forgive everyone for everything.

18. What other people think of you is none of your business.

19. GOD can heal everything in His plan. We just need to trust His bigger picture.

20. However good or bad a situation may seem God is in control.

21. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick.
Your friends will. Stay in touch!!!

22. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.

23. Each night before you go to bed complete the following statements:
'I am thankful for _____.'
'Today I acomplished______.'

24. Remember that you are too blessed to be stressed.

25. In all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your path and you'll be victorious every time!
