Well good for me

Friday, August 22, 2014

Well good for me its Friday and I have followed my program do my exercises and ate healthy.
It sure makes you feel positive and confident when you follow your program. I was reading some of the blogs Spark puts out and they are very good and helpful. I am so proud I found Spark.. I have been here a long time and they never let me down. I may have let me down but not them.
I had to add 100 calories o my program from 1300 to 1400. I was waking in the night with a headache and when I got up in the morning I was trembling and had to eat breakfast before I could even drink my coffee. I had started burning 180 to 202 calories on my bike and my heart rate was 85 to 90 percent plus doing more reps on my weight lifting. My heart was acting strange beating kind of off. I added the 100 calories in the form of yogurt. I started watching what I was eating closer making such I was getting enough nutrition. It worked no headaches, no trembles, no off beating heart. So on I go seeking for health.

    Awesome. I don't think you are letting the program down. You don't want to get sick. I think that was a smart thing to do.

I am giving myself a present.

Thursday, August 21, 2014

I had a great work out this morning. I mean I tore it up. I am doing the recumbent bike to strengthen my knees. They are giving me fits. I can hardly stand for any length of time. The weight I have lost is really helping. I just need a good 100 hundred pounds off. But it will happen in time. I am giving myself a present of one year of eating 1300-1400 calories, recumbent biking for 36 minutes, weight lifting, chest, back, shoulders one day, next day do abs, arms, legs. I will stay as busy as I can. When that present is fulfilled I will get another present until I reach my goal. I really will love having these presents of health. I will show my appreciation of these presents by sticking with my programs and getting healthy. What a joy to have the privilege to do this.

Life or death

Saturday, August 09, 2014

I am proud I decided to show my weight. I have decided to stop hiding and be honest with myself.
I am the one who decided to do something about my weight and be healthy. No one is making me do this. I will be proud of every good decision I make. I will follow my plan every day, weigh twice a week. I will post on Spark and share my victories and failures. I was meditating the other day and I saw in my mind a pair of scales I had loaded one side with fast foods, processed foods, processed sweets, fried foods, on the other side was fruits and vegetables, teas , lean grass grown meats with no hormones or antibiotics, one side glowed with health and life the other side was death. I knew I had to make a choice. What did I want, life or death. I have decided to live and be healthy. I can do anything I set my mind to do. I keep thinking about those scales and I want to keep them before me to remind me of where I am going. The choice is mine.

    It sounds like you are motivated and have a solid plan. Make the best choices that you can, but be forgiving with yourself too. It might not be as black and white as you think, but it is probably good to have an image that keeps you going. Good luck!

I must stay strong

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I was looking over my blogs and I could have cried. It seems like I will be all excited and will eat right, do my exercises for a while, lose weight and then I mess up. This is over and over for years. I steadily get bigger and bigger. I topped out at 348 a couple of months ago. I could barely walk I am in so much pain. I started eating healthy and exercising and so far I have lost 16 pounds and have got a little relief on my knees. I have got to stay on my program or I know I will be in deep trouble. I hate to think what will happen. I am holding strong. This past weekend I had a family reunion and then Monday had a funeral. I did not mess up my program. The pain in my knee is keeping me mindful but what a terrible way to stay on a healthy program.

    Stay strong emoticon We always have motivators, whether positive or negative. Sometimes our negative motivators appear as pain; be grateful that you recognize it and act accordingly. My motivator right now is negative also, a very bland diet due to a stomach problem. If I don't follow it, I will spend all day in pain, and life will grind to a standstill. Keep the faith, in God, in yourself, and your proven, workable program. emoticon emoticon

    You & my daughter are in the same weight range but I keep cheering her on. With every failure remember there is success. Gaining the weight didn't happen overnight. So it will take more that one (1) or two (2) tries to get it figured out.

God bless & be encouraged!

We have all had set backs & cried & got up & tried again & again &
again & so on.... emoticon so smile, we got your back!

    Hopefully it will get easier as the weight comes off. You may want to spend some time thinking about how you will maintain your loss this time. emoticon

Handling crisis

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

My mother-in-law died today. She was 83 and could not walk, could not feed herself or sit up long.
She got pneumonia and could not fight it off. I have found myself wanting to overeat today.
So far I have kept it under control. I don't know why I think I can find comfort in overeating.
It is a lot of tension when families are not close and will not talk over things. I know this is not making much sense or maybe it does. I'm sure a lot of people have problems in families. I will hold it together for my husband and son and I will think better of me than to mess up my health.
Remember my family in your prayers.

    I am dealing with a similar loss - my stepmother died on Saturday and so far I am holding my own. It was VERY hard during the 10 weeks she was in the hospital but that also covered three holidays - Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years - I had a small gain but mostly held my own. You have my deepest sympathy and my prayers as well - family crises are a time when it is often difficult to maintain - PEACE and LOVE go out to you as well.

    So very sorry for your loss! It will be difficult for everyone. Yes, many of us have families with lots of tension in them. In our family it is between my DH and his sister. He wants nothing to do with her. I try to "keep the peace" and end up causing more problems, so I just try to let him deal with it however he sees fit. Regardless, it sounds like you have thought this through and have made a decision to manage your choices very well. Good luck! There will no doubt be more stressful days ahead! (((Hugs))) emoticon emoticon
