My relationship with food

Sunday, July 14, 2013

I have an unhealthy relationship with food. We have a love/hate relationship. I love to eat! I hate how my bad food choices reflect on my body. I am working to change that. This has been an up and down battle since I joined SP way back in 2007. Keep going!!

2012...*sigh* At least it's over!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Ahhh 2012. The year that everything was supposed to be great! This has been one of the worst years ever. For my career. For my family. For my health. For my weight. Everything!

The year started out good. I was finally moving forward in my career. Finally feeling like I was getting somewhere. Then about May, a wonderful opportunity happened for my family. We sold our house, moved, and staked everything on this. Things were going great....flash forward to December....

December changed everything. My entire family lost our jobs. Me, my husband, and two of our children. It was bad. It affected us. Mentally drained, trying to figure out what to do, where to go....just bad.

Things are finally looking up. We just got jobs, and are waiting to hear about a house. Moving back to where we used to be. I want to go ahead and get into school and finish my nursing degree. It's a little harder for me because it is my second Bachelors degree and there just isn't any financial aid available for that.

That being said, I packed on the lbs this year. At the end of December, I decided it is time to get my crap together. I am working on it! I have lost 10 lbs so far. Still struggling with alcohol. Still struggling with food demons. Every little thing. So hard! Since I joined the January fitness jumpstart challenge I am starting to feel a little better. I feel stronger. I feel better mentally. Just better.

I just hope everything continues on a more positive path. We can get through this. We have been through worse.

Starting over. Again. Seems harder when you are almost 40!

Thanks for reading!

    My dear friends and family member has no jobs. They are close to my heart.

It is hard. I will pray for you and your fall back in your drinking. Hang in there girl.

A member in my family loss his life for being an Alcholic many years ago but whenever stress came he hit the bottle. Then his liver was effected.

Another friend died being an alcholic. Just 40. Last year. My husbands partner in business.

So my dear hang in there. Don give in to that enemy. Think of self.
It can destroy your insides.

Looks like you got a hitch on alott of feelings so dont let the demon of drink get you.

It is so hard for us when love ones think we are picking on them but we just love them and then we have loss them. As they prefer the Demon of drink.

You are a very pretty lady. We all can be happy when things are good but when we get tribualations in life then that is when we fall but you know out of bad does come good. It takes time.

I will keep praying for you. If you have faith in God. Hang on to him. For strength.

    Glad to hear you found new jobs. My husband has been out of work since September. Just take it one day at a time. Things are already starting to turn around for you. Going back to school for your nursing degree will open doors for you too.

I am so sorry to hear about all of the setbacks 2012 brought to you and your family. You say things are looking up for you and I hope they continue to do so. I have been away from SP for about 4 months now and finally found my way back. Please remember that the support offered here is priceless. Good luck in January and then build on the positive for February and keep paying it forward.

New Pants.....Wow!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

OK so I finalllllly broke down and bought new pants for work. I am soooo cheap! I have been wearing the same ones since way back at my highest weight. These are actually a size smaller than I thought I would need! Woo hoo! The biggest thing has been the compliments I have gotten! So many people have asked me are you losing weight? You are looking thin! Wow I can not believe what difference a pair of pants could make LOL! I am the same size I was last week when I worked (I only work 3 days per week) and no one even noticed!

Moral! If you are losing, go get some new clothes! Even if it's one thing! It's crazy how big of a confidence boost I have recieved just this weekend. I have been all smiles! emoticon

    So true! And when I get "new" clothes (sometimes I shop at our local thrift store and find great bargains!), I make sure they fit without much room to spare, so I won't even think about getting into some bad eating habits! Loose pants give me a false sense of feeling oh-so-thin!

I gained 5 lbs this week. 5 lbs. You know how long it takes me to LOSE 5 lbs? It is so amazing that I can put it back on like nobody's business.

Well, time to work my butt off. I was out of control this week and now I shall pay.

    Don't feel bad, if it makes you feel better I gained 4lbs! emoticon

Don't worry too alot of it is water weight, I had a 4 lb gain once before and I lost 5lb the following week. I'm hoping it'll be the same although the 4lb is from 2 week's of bad eating, ugh.

I love your background for your SparkPage, where did you find it?

  5 pounds is a lot to gain in a week. Just think that some of that must be water weight. I know after a week of celebrations that my sodium intake would be high and I would retain a lot of water. Maybe you are the same.
I am glad to see that you are going to keep at it. You have been doing awesome.
