my garden

Sunday, May 11, 2014

I thought I'd share my garden with you.


Here are my tomatoes


My sugar snap peas


My jalapenos

I also planted cucumber and Anaheim chili's but still waiting.
I guess I have a green thumb after all. I was thrilled when I noticed this growth yesterday.

I'm a happy mom

Saturday, May 10, 2014



Today my 13 yr old daughter joined me at the gym. I've been trying to get her to for awhile. We walked there and back, almost 4 miles round trip. She tried the bike but didn't like it, then tried stair climber, then ended up jogging on treadmill. We were there 45 minutes and she did so well I'm proud of her =) I love love loved spending that time with my beautiful girl

I'm changing

Thursday, March 27, 2014

I was a bit disappointed when I had a small loss today. But I have to remember how far I've come in 5 months. I started October 28 2013 wearing size 20 pants and 3X shirt. Yesterday I bought size 12 pants and Large shirt. I'm so excited and amazed how far I've come

feeling depressed

Saturday, March 15, 2014

I'm close to 50 pounds down. I should be happy and proud. Don't get me wrong I am but that's not all I am. I'm grossed out by what I see in the mirror daily. The flab on my belly I can't get past how I feel. I realize this journey is not just getting healthy in my body but I have tons of work to do with how I think and look at myself.

Stay strong girl. You need to look at the positives....your almost 50 pounds, your healthier, you can move better, and many more. Maybe you need to sit down and make a list of positive reason for losing weight and a list of negative ones. I am sure the positive ones will really out way the negative ones. Keep up the great work and the accomplishment you have already done.

    Been feeling similar, just don't mention it much.
I might never have a model body, but smaller and so much more able to do things.
I think winter did not help anyone this year. . .

Try not to be too hard on yourself.
Let's slump along together and get past this ...

    (((Lisa))),
You really just have to visualize the person you WANT to see in the mirror. It is really hard getting the negative thoughts out your head when you are feeling that way, but you really, really need to look at that 50# gone....that is 5, 10# bags of potatoes!!!!!! That would be like me losing one of my ChowChows off of my body. That is a HUGE accomplishment. I am VERY PROUD OF YOU!!!!!!! emoticon You are AMAZING!!!!!

    When you mentioned, "I'm grossed out by what I see in the mirror daily" it just broke my heart. I had this negative mind chatter going on in my head at one time but then I had to change my whole outlook on life as I saw that it wasn't serving me or the lifestyle I truly wanted.

What I did was every time I wanted to beat myself up, I would silently scream, "I DISIDENTIFY" and then immediately move onto something, anything, that had absolutely nothing to do with that thought. Even preplanning it like making yourself come on SparkPeople and offering support or reading an informative article. Pretty soon, that negative self-talk changes. Fight the good fight! You are worth it.

    Lisa, awww I am so sorry you are feeling his way today. I know sometimes you just have to work through those feelings.

Some people write a pro and con list about their body image. The pro list usually wins because there is stuff like " my legs are strong, my teeth are white and even, my arms are strong, my heart beats hard, my feet carry me far, my rings still fit, My eyes shine bright, I can hear my kids (dogs, birds, wind, etc.), I can feel the wind when I walk, I can see the beauty in nature when I walk, I have a skeleton system that keeps me upright) .I know for me, this beats the crap out of my belly hangs low, my arms could make helicopter blades, my butt is too big (more cushion to sit on). I hope you can work rough this panther pal. emoticon emoticon emoticon TC
