Once again

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Well what can I say. I have been emotional eating for about a month now. I gained somewhere around 7 pounds back. It has been very hard for me. I know that I am a little depressed right now. I guess I am just having a pity party all by myself.
Have you felt that no one really truly loves you or that no one really wants to be around you. Well that is where I am right now. Now whether this is really true or not I am not sure. It is just the way I feel at this time. I do not believe in forcing myself on anyone. So as the saying goes " it is what it is". I know that taking off weight is not going to fix this problem, neither is putting on weight.
Right now I am going to focus back on eating healthy and exercising to take care of myself at least. I shall keep pressing on, for this feeling will soon go away. This I do pray. I am not looking for pity. I have enough of that on my own. So back to finding the healthy me.


Moving does make a difference

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

My husband started his own gutter business about a year ago. Before this he was over weight. My husband was not one for wanting to exercise, eat healthy or lose weight. After beginning his new business which requires him to climb the ladder and hang the gutter, he has lost a lot of weight. The point being that it is a fact that the more you move the more you lose. He did not cut back on what he eats. He is just working the weight off. I have always said that you need to move as much as possible. I do not always follow this rule. However after watching the weight come off of him it has motivated me to get up off the couch. So lets all get up and get moving. emoticon

    I totally agree - I have been out of work for a couple of weeks now and I am starting to put weight on - boredom doesn't help and I am not moving as much cos I have all day to do stuff - well done to your hubby and good luck.

weight lose for this week.

Sunday, August 01, 2010

Yeah, I did well this past week. I lost 1.2 pounds. I was hoping for more. I will try to up my exercise this next week to see if it helps to take off another pound.
I have 14 more pounds to go.

    emoticon. I have been holding at the same weight since June but that is because of my exercise habits. Keep up the good work and I hope August will be your month for more weight lost.

shopping for bathing suit

Friday, July 23, 2010

Let me start by saying I HATE shopping for a bathing suit. At my age and my weight it is a horror story. If you really want to see what your body truly looks like, you need to shop for a bathing suit. If I were 20 years younger and 20 pounds lighter maybe it would not be such a chore. I guess I have only myself to blame for looking like a blob. The problem is that I love to eat and I love to cook. As I tell myself over and over again, I need to get serious about taking off this excess weight and doing more exercise. Not feeling really good about myself after seeing that mess in the mirror last night.

  Since you like to cook this process will be so much easier for you--you will be creative and there are a lot of great, healthy recipes out there. Good luck!

    Don't beat yourself up... use those images from the mall mirrors as motivation! Easier said than done, I know. Good luck this week!

Stress eating took me down for a while

Monday, June 14, 2010

Well what can I say. Things got really hectic at work. They are making a lot of changes. For about a month we did not know from one minute to the next if our jobs would be safe. I got so upset that I just started eating anything I wanted. I am still not sure about the future of my job. I did decide to give the whole thing to God where it belongs. My worry and over eating will not change anything except my health. I am now back to eating healthy and exercising again.
It is very easy to slip back when you are under a lot of stress. I could not believe that I allowed myself to just go crazy.
I now have peace that if it is meant for me to keep this job then I will if not then I wont. GOD IS IN CONTROL. I have taken back my control over what I eat and the activity that I get each day. I am looking forward to taking off the 5 pounds that I put back on during this spell.
