Be Happy with your size..

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

What i mean to say is.. dont try to be a size 4 when you just cant be that skinny. Sometimes we look at others and what size or weight they are and we think .. gee i need to be that skinny.. but it all depends on your bones and height.. i am skinny for me.. i have large bones.. and straight up and down and for me what i weight is good for me.. i dont think i would look good a size 4 or 2.. and really doesnt matter what size i am.. as long as i feel good about me and how i feel.. so dont get upset or bring yourself down if your not at a smaller size.. that some are.. just think of what is good for you.. that matters more..


Did you know??

Its how you dress also that make you skinny or looking fat..Did you know that?? sometimes too lower of pants will make you have that muffin top so you look fatter.. also if you wear clothes that are too tight. Not good.. cause will show all and you will still not feel like you have lost weight. So dress the best you can while your on your journey. Pick out clothes that fit right. Pants maybe fitting a little higher than than younger girls wear.. and see if you can see the difference.. Good fitting clothes make the difference and you will have more confidence and feel great about yourself! which is so important as we lose and want to look good.. just things i have learned along the way!

    And try not to make the mistake I frequently make--wearing clothes that are loose because I think I am hiding my fat!

    There is a show on tv called what not to wear, and I have picked up some tips from it, like wear straight leg pants, not tapered. And dark wash jeans look better, slimmer. tops should have a tiny bit of flare at the bottom, not straight up and down slim like junoir clothing. Fun show, the people leave looking so much different then when they started.

    I have a favoriate pair of shorts that are very loose now. I like to wear them when I'm feeling a little plump for the day. They make me feel good, and that makes me remember that I have lost weight and remindes me that I haven't gained it all back, and that I have maintained. I don't like any of my bumps and bulges to show. lol

    Wow, you are so right! Jeans don't need to be tight and show every little bump!

  So true. I traded in a lot of my babydoll tees when I hit 20.

Feeling great!

Thursday, August 06, 2009

I am feeling great theses days.. working out eating good.. have good habits in place.. so its working. I also realize i will never be perfect or have the perfect body but i am ok with that.. after all i am 58! At least i finally got in shape and can do all i love to do and have a lot of engery! It took me a long time to get where i am but was so well worth it. Now i try to help daughter and others and hopefully they too can do it! my daughter is doing so well.. shes eating better and exercising.. and got a good positive attitude. But hard for her sometimes with 3 kids and trying to do all with work and home. But i have a a lot of faith in her and know she will get to her goal. The good thing she doesnt have a lot to lose.. not like i did. And next year she will finally have the wedding of her dreams. I am so happy for her and so excited .!!!
So make each day count and dont sweat the little things that get you down.. you can ALL do this! Hugss Geri.. Love you daughter!!!

Hot days!!! hard to exercise....

Thursday, July 16, 2009

I find it hard to exercise on such hot days we are having here in calif.. but if i get out early enough before i do anything else i get it done and feel great!.. And then i am at daughters 3 days a week she has a pool and so that makes it so much easier cause i so love to swim and keeps me cool as well..
Exercise never was my fav.. but now i so love it and think of all kinds of things to have fun and exercise too.. like bike riding.. i love that and hadnt done it since i was a teenager and now i am riding like mad..!.. Also want to play baseball.. and play basket ball.. i think it would be fun to do with grandkids and my daughter and husband.,. and i am sure my son in law would join in too..! so make the most of your time and find fun ways to exercise~it does help so much with a lot.. moods and stress and emotional eating!!

Its a matter of what works for you!

Thursday, July 02, 2009

I have given advice to my daughter and to gf.. and many on here but it really comes down what works for you! my daughter is going on a vegatarian type life style( wont say diet) and if that works for her and she loses and is able to stay on that besides working out and all then thats great! We all find out what really is what works for us.. for me i go on treadmill almost every day and bike ride when i can.. also plan ahead on exercise and food and try eating little meals thru out the day biggest before dinner. Now thats what works for me.. I have lost 100 pounds or so and i plan on keeping it off for a long time to come.. ! Dont want to be lazy and think i still dont have to work hard to keep in shape.
So if your just starting out or been doing things and its not working.. try thinking what will work for you.. doing exercise in am?? or in evening.. should all be in a habit.. make good habits and they will last a long time!!
we all can do this if we help each other..thnaks for all who have supported me and helped me along the way..!

    It always comes down to one person-you! You are so correct when you say what works for you. We are all different and respond in different ways. That makes us all special and makes each battle our own. I have only myself to blame if I fail and I need to be accountable to me.
Thanks for sharing! Have a great 4th of July weekend! emoticon

    I totally's what works for each of us individually...I eat a lot of vegetarian meals, never was a big meat eater so I don't miss it. But that might not be for someone else. It takes experimenting, trying new things to figure out what will work for each of us!! The one thing that we all need and count on tho, is the support of our Spark friends...isn't this site just the best?!
