CURVYNANNY's Recent Blog Entries


Saturday, August 22, 2009 I'm having a blah kinda day today and thinking about what I will need to do to boost my weight loss...before joining the group from church I had alread hit a plateau but I thought that perhaps the support and encouragement from others close by (friends and aquaintences) would help me to "begin again" hasn't...I am sit spinning my wheels on the plateau. So, I've been thinking that I may need to add some calories for a few days and see if that will kick start this thing into gear agin...I remember from going to Curves that sometimes we need to do that (and it does work so long as you don't relapse into your "old ways" and get back on your diet as before). My weigh in is tomorrow...I will decide what to do after that...according to how it goes. Pray for me. Thanks.

    Definitely DON'T GIVE UP! emoticon

Don't make it a race, make it one day at a time. Getting HEALTHY takes a while when we are not into a healthy lifestyle.

Build something new on each day or each week. Go slow and make the changes last. Don't try to conquer all at one time.

Here for you!

    a spark friend left me with some good advise for plateaus and you can find it on a site on my page called "calorie cycling" just join up and you will find information on how to do this. I have not used it or taken the time to figure it all out as I have not needed to use it yet, but it does make sence and the sparks people using this system are finding great results.

What ever you do DON"T give up! we are all here for you, the weight will budge eventually just be patient. Aside from that site I mentioned, two other ways to get the scale to move again is to shake up your work out by trying something different with a little more intensity or lowering the calories a bit.

Take care and let me know how it goes.

    those darn plateau's can really put u in the blahs, try adding some weights. strength train doesn't have to be like the olympics or body builder's, just making your muscles stronger can help with weight, bone mass, and so many other thing's . you can just use one lb weights , walk with them on tred, or incorporate them into workouts you already do, muscle burns fat,plus gives you more energy emoticon

Making today count in memory of my mom...

Thursday, August 20, 2009

August 20, 1929 was the day my mom was born...she passed away on October 17, 1999. Had she lived we would be celebrating her 80th birthday intend to celebrate it by making today count toward improving my health...thus improving my life. She had wanted me to be healthy and happy...the last time she saw me I weighed my heaviest (404)...I believe she would be very pleased with how far I've come...I will be disiplined and determined today...I will not give in to temptations and I will stay focused...I will do this because God is all about me being well...I will do this for me...I will do this for my family...I will do this for my friends...and today I will remember to do well because my mom would want me to...she believed in me...I will believe in myself!

    love yourself as god loves you unconditionaly for you are a beautiful person, as I am sure your mother smiles down apon you, and is your guardian helping you each step of the way.

The lord sais, " we are never given more than we can bare" and a master said "There are no mistakes, only lessons to learn" so may we learn every day and work towards making ourselves better in every way.

Keep up the good work, and don't do like I did, I stopped coming to sparks for 6 months and got no were. It really does make a difference being here for each other.

I'm back.

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I've been away from SparkPeople for awhile now (I did confess to having a bad habit of beginning things and then giving up)...but I really haven't given up...just lost my way a bit. I have been able to lose some weight since leaving...I was at 304 when I was here last...I am at 291 now. I cannot express the feeling I felt when I stepped on the scale and had a reading of be under 300 pounds for the first time in nearly 18 years was the best feeling ever! I have been so encouraged since then and am trying desperately to reach for one mile stone at a time...setting my goals at 10 pound intervals so that it is not too overwhelming.Hopefully I can finally realize some tangible success...I am determined to see this thing through...I am praying for discipline daily.

Fair and walking (beyond)

Monday, August 04, 2008

My day would be much NICER if I had avoided the fair! Okay it's Monday now and I am so HURTING! Fairs should be against the law! Tell me again how this too much pain to walk--walk to relieve pain--in worse pain fom walking--so now what? No, I haven't given up, just not as "hesitantly entusiastic" as before...hahaha!!! Seriously though, I can bearly move and wonder how I am supposed to walk in this condition. It's so frustrating and discouraging.

    You've overdone your walking at the fair. It will take awhile to get rid of the soreness. Maybe, try to walk only for five minutes, than after it gets easy, up the time another five minutes, so on. When we are hurting ,it's hard to want to do the exercise that we know we need to be doing. We didn't put in on overnight, so we can't expect it to come back off overnight. I hope that you haven't given up. I hope too that you are well. Take care.

    I am right there with you. I have a hard time getting all my house work done because of back pain. Frustrated doesn't even begin to describe how I feel. But I won't give up and neither should you! emoticon

The fair and walking

Sunday, August 03, 2008

We took our grandchildren to the fair today. They had a ball! I am proud of myself I walked more today than I have in I can't tell you when...but I am HURTING BIG TIME now! My back is totally gone. I hope I will be able to roll out of the bed in the morning.

    The one big thing that you did ,was give it a try. I hope that you were able to get out of bed ,after this walking ,too. Our muscles can sure get sore ,and we find ones that we didn't know that we had, when we first start doing any kind of exercise. Starting is one of the hardest things to do ,sometimes. I almost forgot that I wanted to tell you I like this heart,too. You are doing good with this project.
