I mostly have that under control these days, but I'm not gonna lie...I had a bit of a set back this weekend. I just got to feeling a little down about my weight. Frustrated with myself. Just for putting it back on in the first place. Dang it. I worked so hard to lose it the first time. Anyway, I had been doing so well and really felt like I should have lost 2 pounds this past week, but I just couldn't get under that 193 (it was 192.8 this by the way). I was getting down and frustrated and really wanted to just give up. A few months ago I would have. But my husband agreed to measure just one area (my waist) a couple of days early. It was 2 inches smaller than a month ago. That helped. Then when I put my workout clothes on I took a minute to just feel how loose they are. Same thing with my post workout clothes. There's such a big difference there, in fit and comfort level.
In conclusion....we must remember those non scale victories because they matter. I do have to say that it is a very good thing that my waist was 2 inches smaller or I may have just snapped. Honestly, I didn't do very good with my diet yesterday, I didn't do very good with my exercise either, but I survived and managed to be 1 pound down this week. I'll take that. I never claimed to be perfect.
I'm feeling very tired today, I'm guessing as a result of my diet over the weekend, but I expect to bounce back soon.
Have a wonderful day Spark Friends!

When you don't lose weight as quickly as you would like or were losing it is so frustrating. I'm currently on a mini plateau and it seems like no matter what I do my weight doesn't change. I found myself really getting worked up about it. I took a deep breath and reminded myself of all my non scale victories. I'm due to measure this coming week and I am hopeful I will see a change there. Also, I'll think about jogging today to see if it jump starts me. Have a great Sunday sparkles!

About my picture I posted. Seriously. I can't believe I posted it, but I did and I could cry just looking at it. I know from experience that that tummy isn't going anywhere....it will get smaller, but it will always look like that.
I have decided that you should see the whole me and I am not going to be embarrassed about it any longer. It is what it is and all I can do is continue to take care of myself.
It was hard to post that, but not as hard as it is to not be able to get on the floor to play with my son, or run around the soccer field with her, or being scared to go to an amusement park because my feet can't hold me up all day.
I said this time is different and I meant it. I keep saying I feel stronger this time and I aim to prove it.
Check me out....belly and all. I'm loud and I'm proud to say I'm doing something about it!!!
Rock on Spark world....sexy spare tire and all!

Fat turkey fat hen
We're not here for living
We're here for thanksgiving
Gobble gobble gobble
Fat turkey fat hen
To the tune of "The more we get together"
There are about a billion Christmas songs. I thought you'd like to have this little thanksgiving ditty in your head. haha.
Any who....something has been on my mind lately and it is quite off subject....
I was looking through some of my pictures from my healthy days. I had worked so hard and a frequent reward was a haircut. I got my haircut and I had on a shirt that didn't fit me before and my husband wanted a picture of me in it (it was a freeby shirt from a company that he uses that was really kind to him and he wanted to post it on their forum). I posted it on here because I was so happy that I fit in it. I was happy when I got it too because it was a small and I was thrilled that the owner of the company estimated me that tiny. After having been estimated at the size of a house for so long, it's the little things that count. Anyway...it was a good picture for me... My hair was done that day by the stylist and I never styled it like that again because it wasn't me, wasn't what I wanted, but still....I was so happy with that picture that I didn't care if I looked good or not. But my coworker saw that picture and said "wow, you look old". When I protested she said "no seriously, you look 50".
Now....let me tell you what I heard...
"Oh my gawd! You look so freakin old! You better not lose weight again because you're gonna look like you're eighty!".
I'm not gonna lie, it hurt my feelings. Pretty good really. I mean, some things just shouldn't be said. That was a couple of weeks ago.
And now.....well now....I find I don't care. If I lose weight and I look 50, I'll take it. You know why? Because I want to live a long time and I don't have to be pretty to do that, but what I do need is to be healthy. And happy. I won't let her thoughtless comment "weigh" on me any longer. I know when I lose weight my face tends to get to thin while the rest of me stays nice and thick. And that's okay.
Have a wonderful day today and whatever you do don't like other people bring you down. It's not worth it. Period.

Reading some old blogs I found a lot of funny stuff. I told on myself....a lot. Hilarious stuff right there...
I feel as though I need to find my funny bone again. Here's the thing...it's so different this time. The first time around I had a lot to learn about myself. Not just in how to eat healthy and exercise, but about a lot of bad habits I had built.
Finding my funny bone won't be easy, but I do think it will be rewarding. I can still be serious, but I love my funny blogs. They make this whole thing feel better, more fun.
Anyway, don't get whiplash looking for my new "funny" blogs, but definitely be on the lookout.
I shall astound with my profound hilarity! Well....perhaps I won't "astound" you, but I bet you'll at least chuckle.
Wishing you all a most spectacular day.
