The dream come true!

Friday, March 13, 2009

I always dreamed of losing a lot and being skinny.. but never thought i could do it! And funny thing is i always thought i was always fat.. and i wasnt.. when i lived at home i was skinny but my parents made me think i was fat.. so its all how we think of ourselves and how we grew up and our self asteem. And of course i gained a lot after my kids and for different reasons but now i delt with why i gained and when i got here i was so ready to lose and be a thinner me! And after more than a year i did it! And i tell you.. you dont realize when you have been so over weight as i was.. just the little things mean so much.. just doing stuff you couldnt do before. It is a dream come true and i will never been that fat person again.. I have a new outlook on life and do so manmy things differently , and most of all i love myself!!!!!!!!!!!

    you are really inspirational! I am looking forward to getting there- I have always had a distorted self image- when i was in high school I weighed 115 and thought I was a blimp- oh to go back to that!!! (The weight not high school , not my favorite years)

    I remember when my fat weight was 135! My highest weight in my pregnancies was 164! Who would have thought I would top out at 228 to 232!!! It is so nice to be getting slim again! I remember some referring to me as skinny when I was growing up but by age 14 I wore a 36 D bra. My measurements were 36 22 34! Well I am back to the 36 but it is a B now and the 22 inch waist is now a 33 and the hips...well about 42 but my age is 57 now and menopause is the frontrunner in my life now! I keep wishing the hot flashes were me sweating off the pounds and inches but it doesn't seem to work that way. But I am only 8.8 pounds away from the weight the Dr wants me at...so I am well on my way too!

Geri you look really really awesome! I am so happy for you! Hugs and Love for you, My Friend.

Reached my goal! so doing a new one!

Sunday, February 01, 2009

I did reach my goal and feel awesome! was a long year but i made it! A lot of ups and downs but i was very determinded to do it and wouldnt let anything get in my way! Now my husband wants to lose weight and is walking with me and eating much better. And that is hard for him cause his work hes a cook!So hes around food a lot. But he sees me doing it and he wants to be healthy and look better too! so i am doing another goal,a little smaller just to keep me going and so i dont slide back and start gaining. Not worried about nummbers on the scale just want to challange myself. !! Now everyone can do that.. keep challanging yourself to do more and more its what keeps me on tract..

A new year... Some sad stuff

Friday, January 23, 2009

Well its the new year and been busy.!!! I have lost about 100 pounds now and working out each day.. challenging myself to keep going and be more fit and healthy! working out 60 mins and more.. not always on treadmill some days doing exercise dvds... keeping it fun and keeping my self on tract!... .The most important thing for me is to be healthy and to be close to my family and friends and keep in touch with them. So trying to do that.
I love SP and trying to help as many as i can.. I sure i have helped some..!!!

The hardest thing this year is when my brother in law(husbands brother) and his wife were in a big fire( their traller) and she was killed and he is in the hosptial with 2 to 3 degree burns over his upper body. We are going to see him this weekend and see some of husbands family as well.. we were always so close to this brother and his wif and kids hen we used to live in bay area, we lost touch when we moved to where we are now, but got back in touch a few months ago at a family gathering, My husband cried when he saw his brother and it was a wonerful visit for him ! Now this happened and its so sad, all we can do i hope and pray my brother in law will make it thru and be ok..

make each day count cause we never know when something might happen to any of us!! Hugss and love to all.. Geri

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family as you face this tragedy. Your BIL will need much support in the weeks and months to come as he deals with the loss of his wife and recovers from his injuries. He is especially in my prayers.

I got my husband to walk with me!!

Monday, January 19, 2009

Was a awesome weekend! First for having my daughter and family over for dinner on sat night , and second for my husband (my Big supporter) went walking not just sat but sunday too!!! Sat we walked around where we live and i walk faster so i am ahead of him, but went well and walked for a hour. Then sunay we had to go to walmart to take back a small heater that just kept tripping the electricty so wasnt going to work for us , so we walked there and waled home.. about 4 miles all togerther , I got a good work out that day cause i did 50 mins on treadmill( i wanted to do 60) . Husband did great even thou i know he was sore after and complained a little that i walked him to death.lol I think he loved it and will do it more on weekends since most times we dont do a lot, trying to save money.I felt so good so engergized and so close to him , which i have been waning to do something like this for a long time.
Its the little things that really do make the differerence and make you happy!

    Hi Geri,

I am so glad that you had a wonderful weekend. You are a role model in so many ways to me. I pray some day that we get to meet each other and spend sometime together. I hope to get back into working out six days a week starting this week.
That's a good that you and your husband went walking together for the both of your health and relationship. emoticon

How i am now..

Friday, January 02, 2009

Its january now and i started on this site in january and i am almost at my goal, but doesnt matter if i am at my goal or not, I am happy i have lost all i have!!! Its been a long journey and i have learned a lot and have grown as a person and have tried to help some on the emotional eaters team which i am so like!! And i know so many are still struggling with emotionalk eating and i know i have in the past and still do a little but i have learned to deal ith it in different ways. I want to thank everyone who has been a good friend to me and helped me get to where i am now! Its all worth all the work and effort and will change you for life! This is a life style change not a diet! So keep moving and YOU all will do it too!

    Hi Geri ,
I am so proud of you for making your goal. I started in February and there is no way I will make my goal seeing I am about at the same weight I started out at. I will not give up but it is hard to be excited for me seeing I am no where near my goal. I think I have been eating emotion lately . I really need some one to keep at me with my eating and exercising everyday and tell me what I need to do to get this weight off.
You are someone to be very proud of you just keep at what ever you are doing . emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
