Time to get a plan....

Saturday, September 13, 2014

I have gained a few pounds and I have not made any progress in a year.

Which isn't all bad. I gained 3 pounds and lost 80.

But I have 30 more to go!

I need to make a plan.


Or Keto?

Should I start exercising?

Time to get a plan together!!

    First of all, you look great. Many people would be happy to be just where you are now. For that, you should be commended.

Should you exercise? YES. It may not help you lose weight at all unless you really push hard but it will help you maintain lean muscle mass while you lose weight. If not, you'll burn muscle mass too and end up weaker. It doesn't have to be super strenuous, but walking 30 minutes, methodically lifting light weights, flexibility exercises, that sort of thing are a real help. Determined yardwork, moving boxes, and a daily walk will get you there. You don't even have to join a gym to do that.

I wouldn't recommend MediFast due to the cost and the problem you'll face once you get to your goal. Then what? Might as well figure out what you like NOW nutritionally and then make that the life plan. Otherwise you'll risk rebounding as soon as you go off MediFast. I like Keto, but it may not be sustainable as a long-term diet. LC is very sustainable. I am keto'ing until I reach the goal, then LC from there.

Good luck!

    Whatever your plan is, be methodical and make changes that you can stick to forever. Sure, it takes longer to make those kinds of changes, but then you never have to do a do-over!

I need to find something I like to do!

Friday, May 09, 2014

Yesterdays blog was kind of a downer, but it needed to come out.

I need to start from the bottom and find out what I like to do before I can involve anyone else.

Since I can't go out and dine or have cocktails, I will have to look at other entertainment options.

I could try a movie. Bring my own snack and get a diet coke. Some theaters might have coke zero or diet dr. pepper now!

I should scour the internet for lists of things to do and see which ones I like. I guess what scares me is I feel like I could return to eating and drinking and find out I don't like those anymore either. Maybe I don't. Then what. Argh.

So, today will be about:

1) Internet research on things I would like to do. Get list, print out and underline cool things!

2) Watch a movie at home tonight without stopping it more than 2x.

3) Get exercise in

4) Get some cleaning done

I have a plan! Let me get it done!!!

What a crazy world!!

Friday, May 09, 2014

I have thought about dating, but I go through the pictures and the idea of having coffee with someone just seems kind of like work. And then it is time to close out that window.

What would I do on a date besides coffee? My therapist said " The sky is the limit". He is wrong. Not being able to drink and having to watch my weight kind of leaves just about everything off the table. He mentioned hiking. Well, that would be great if we didn't live in a dirty desert and it didn't involve bugs, etc. And there is nothing good to see around here. Then I started reading about sober people having sex, and no one had anything good to say about those experiences.

American ads put up all this social eating and other food ads. But if you eat like that and eat that food, you won't be able to wear the clothes in the other ads. HOW INSANE IS THAT?

I think I will pass on the dating. It is bad enough that I am suffering through this. No need to make someone else suffer too.

    I can eat out. It is just why bother. Ordering is difficult and then most of the time I am disappointed when it gets to me. If I make it myself, I avoid that.

As for the sex, maybe they are. But I guess it is more about my anxiety as to it would never happen. I guess it is all for the best.

    Wow, honey, if you're suffering through weight loss you're doing it totally wrong. Paleo has some of the best food choices on the planet! I eat out all the time.

Sure, you can only have one glass of wine if you're trying to lose fat, but like Miss Sofi said, sober people have great sex - no boozy haze to deaden the senses!

    I don't think you should force yourself to date if you're not interested or ready. I'm sure there are plenty of sober people having great sex too. emoticon

Remember the colors?

Friday, March 07, 2014

Remember these?

I got them!

I got the green in a 30 for 30 dollars and I got the purple in an 8 for 20 dollars.

If you wait long enough, the world goes on sale and it fits!

I will try and get some pics!!

Non Scale Victories

Monday, February 17, 2014

I participated in an interview at UCLA last week where I got paid. It was a research study where they asked you a bunch of health questions.

It was a young woman asking me questions. She asked me did I have heart disease, cancer, etc. Then the question was obesity. I think she was expecting a "no" answer. I said since I was 6 or 7. She said she was surprised because and she just looked at me. That was kind of awesome.

Not that I look like a twig, even though I still weigh 174 pounds I actually have started wearing large shirts in the regular women's section. I have not been able to wear women's regular size tops in 8 years. My top half is bigger than my bottom half (size 8). I bought a shirt at Ross last week from of of my favorite designers where I usually get their stretchy shirts. I got the cotton shirt! I tried it on. I was kind of shocked. Even though I have not lost any weight in a while ( and I have not gained!! and I have not been HUNGRY!!! ) my body seems to have gotten smaller.

I lost 40 pounds and I am not dieing keeping it off.

I can do this!!

I think the longer you keep it off the more your weight seems to " shift" around and sort of reposition ! I am so happy for you !!
