for real...

Thursday, June 03, 2010

why do people insist on shoving cake at me? is it really so freaking awful that i don't want cake? are your feelings really hurt when i tell you that i'm trying to be healthy and don't want cake? i mean, it's not like i am personally insulting you...it's not just YOUR cake that is unhealthy. i'm not choosing to single your cake out and personally offend it.

I DON'T WANT ANY DAMN CAKE! yet, you insist on bringing over a "really small" piece and sitting it on my desk and now it is staring at me and i'm afraid you are watching me so i can't just throw it out!

am i not allowed to participate in a birthday celebration if i don't eat cake?

    Throw that cake out! Forget about the calories, throw it out just because that person was SO pushy!

    I know what you mean! I'm fed up of people saying "One little piece is fine." They don't realise there are lots of other people who say "One little piece........"

sad, uneaten sub...

Friday, April 23, 2010

i'm sitting here at my desk attempting to do some work...next to me on the desk is my untouched turkey sub from subway. umm...i'm kinda hungry...but this is just not appealing. it has all the typical stuff that i put on my turkey sub, but the thought of actually taking a bite...just not working for me.

i'm not sure what the deal is...i think this may be the only time this week that i have gone to subway, so it's not that i'm in a rut...and i LOVE going to subway. although that may have more to do with the cute "sandwich artist" with the great smile and incredible eyes...

but anyway...what do you do when you are hungry, but not hungry for what is sitting before you?

    Eat the sub and go back and flirt with the "artist" some more while he's making your new sub.

    Well, if you were one of my cats I'd just say you'd eat it when you are hungry emoticon

If it doesn't sound good, don't eat it, but don't let yourself get too hungry and eat something not as heathy later!

a fresh start...

Monday, November 02, 2009

well, i need to get back on track. this has gotten out of control. i really lept off the wagon and ran in the opposite direction. but i see how my weight is all connected to the rest of my life and how that is also somewhat out of control. i started reading "does this clutter make my butt look fat" by peter walsh (the guy from Clean Sweep when it was on TLC or something). i'm not very far into it, but he is basically saying that it's all connected. my house is getting out of control...it's clutter central. i start throwing things out and then when it doesn't get any better i just give up. similar to my attempts at losing weight.

the book talks about what you need to live a more fulfilling life...and that living a more fulfilling life is really a key to happiness...and that the weight and the clutter really aren't the true issues. the real issues are being covered by and fed with the stuff and the food. and a lot of the real issues are related to how people feel about themselves...but i think it is interesting that he is drawing a comparison between weight and clutter.

so yeah, another self help book with promises and whatnot, but so far i really think the concept makes sense. i'm going to keep reading...and i do think that i need to make myself feel worthwhile. worthy of my own time and energy. because no one else is going to believe it if i don't first. if only i could figure out how to do that...

    I know the feeling. Kudos on coming back and trying again. Continuous effort is the key to a life style change - get up one more time than you fall down. Never give up, never surrender!

    Don't give up. It is the easiest thing to do. Sticking with anything is hard to do. i amjust glad that I am staying with school. I think that I was starting too many things at once, which isn't a good thing. Just keep it up and we will all get there together!

the curvalicious dilemma

Saturday, May 09, 2009

here is my pattern: i start a diet...lose a few pounds, nothing significant, and then i get frustrated and start to slack. i start to get into this whole mental/emotional debate. my feminist gut tells me that i should embrace who i am...but my superficial side wants to be skinny. but along with the ideal skinniness...i will lose the knockers that i love!! and the hips that i sometimes realize are kind of nice. i do kind of like my curves...just not the fat and cellulite that come with them!!!

how do i balance the two sides? when it comes down to it, i really just want to be happy...and happy with who i am and what i look like...but i'm not sure how that is possible. why is there so much emphasis on weight?? why is that so often associated with happiness?

also, is it possible to be healthy at any weight? or is that a myth?

i just came across this book:


sounds interesting...just trying to rethink the reason for dieting and addressing some of the media viewpoints that mess with my head!

maybe i should get around to that "love the body you were born with" workbook from my women's studies class...

i totally understand where you are coming from . . . *hugs*
would it help to consider that while your chest and hips will shrink so will the rest of you. . . you've got a proportion that isn't going to go away once you drop weight . . . the ratio isn't going to be that far off. so, in comparison to the rest of your body, your hips will still jut out and your chest will still be pronounced. you'll still be you . . . only healthier :)

you can do this :)

best of luck and with lots of support,
