Yeah, woo hoo, I lost another five pounds. So glad I staying consistent I love the way I feel , like I am unwrapping a present to me. I can't wait to see what happens along my journey and what surprises awaits me. It feels real good when I lay down at night and my stomach is growling. I'm enjoying the feeling because I know I have fed my body healthy today and it has enough nourishment and that growling is just my body losing some more fat, so I just smile and sleep very sound indeed and in a few days I will weigh and see what surprises await me.
Good night sweet Spark friends and may your stomach also growl and don't forget to smile. emoticon

Proud of me

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

We went off for a couple of days and just relaxed. We really enjoyed it.
We ate lots of vegetables and fruit and did not go over our calories. I'm real proud of us.
What was so funny was I had no desire to over eat or eat anything that was not healthy.
I am so pleased that I'm really looking forward to my transformation and doing something about it.

High and resolute courage

Saturday, July 03, 2010

"We are face to face with our destiny and we must meet it with a high and resolute courage. For us is the life of action, of strenuous performance of duty; let us live in the harness, striving mightily; let us rather run the risk of wearing out than rusting out."
Theodore Roosevelt
This touched me and encouraged me, I hope it does the same for you. emoticon

I was reading a book and they were talking about if you have a lot of weight to lose and you keep losing and gaining you are afraid of something. I am trying to figure out what I am afraid of, maybe my joints will quit hurting, maybe I'll have lots of energy, maybe I'll be able to wear cute clothes not that awful stuff they have out there now, maybe I'll be able to inspire others, etc. I promise you I can't understand why I do the losing and gaining. I don't think I'm afraid of anything. All I can think of is what a plus it would be for losing the weight and staying at the same weight for ever. Folks say, well you must be getting something out of it or you would not be doing it. Bologna!! I hate with a purple passion this weight and I want it gone once and for all.
Any body out there that knows the magic answer I would appreciate a line to let me know the secret.

    IMABE1FORTY posted this list in her blog:
How you kill yourself with food.
You use food:
to kill your sexual energy
to kill your uncomfortable feelings
to kill your need to self-express
to kill your need for intimacy
to kill your risky dreams and hopes
to kill your personal power
to kill your passions
to kill your awareness of self and others
to kill your desires for freedom
to kill your urge to dramatically change your life.

We should all agree to no longer be afraid to LIVE.

    I am definitely afraid of letting others down. Not to mention myself. I can lose the weight but then others look to you for inspiration. How did you do it? They seem to watch you more closely. Sometimes, I think I have found comfort in being the fat girl. I can hide there in the back ground not being noticed as much. People seem to not expect as much.....Afraid? Yes the fear is there in more ways than I think I have even discovered. Accepting me for who I am and what I am trying to cover goes on and on. Why else do I try to hide under all this extra weight!

    To find out what you are afraid of commit to your program 100%. Eat healthy, drink plain water-plenty of it, and daily exercise. Once you start losing weight consistently I can guarantee you you will indeed find out what you are afraid of....perhaps change itself.

    The only magic I know is to believe in yourself. You are a beautiful person with so much to give to yourself and others, don't allow any book, or anyone try taking that away from you

I would be proud to call you friend emoticon

    It would never occur to me to say the gaining is because of a fear of something, but I suppose in the case of people who are very overweight, like myself, it could be likened to a fear of facing feelings. I would eat to avoid confrontations between my expectations and other people's abilities which were in danger of bubbling, stuff down the disappointment because of a fear of being disappointed again? I suppose it could be seen that way. Dealing with the emotional issues finally stopped my gain, loss, gain, loss cycle. Maybe I should say, facing my fears LOL
I enjoyed this blog post, thanks.

I don't know what I'm afraid of...
I guess it must be counting calories... because I totally refuse to do it and that must have something to do w/ me not being able to reach my goal.


I don't know what that book was talking about...
but I personally think that I'm not controlling my portions (which I never have prior to sp) and that's the reason why I'm not losing weight. I'm sure there is some inner struggle that keeps me from breaking through this... but I can't tell you what it is. I know that discipline gets the weight off. I also know that carelessness gets it back on. My goal is to not be careless and work on the discipline.

    I've given this a lot of thought as I yo yo through life. Sometimes I think I lose the weight just so I can enjoy putting it back on. I know that sounds sick, but that's what keeps happening. And everytime I get down to where I want to be I swear that this time I'm keeping it off. Honestly, though, I know where regaining some of it has come from: Quitting smoking, switching to the night shift, a decrease in activity due to surgeries and injuries. Just so frustrating. All I know to do is keep on keeping on.

    Don't dispair -- there are no magic bullets unfortunately, but the determination you have to lose is you mainstay. It takes awhile, it won't go away all at once, and if you are angry enough and want to lose bad enough, then you will be able to start out. Little steps at a time. One day at a time. Each day is the only day you want to take care of. Don't get on the scales all the time. it will only discourage you as weight goes up and down 1 or 2 pounds just from fluid retention. Do your schedule every day. Even if you mess up one day, start back again the next day. We are all trying to lose and we all have ups and downs and back slides and have to gather ourselves together again and keep on truckin'. And you have lots of SP who've "got your back". emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The clock is running out. Woe is me.

Thursday, July 01, 2010

I am trying to eat healthy and exercise where my body will heal. I feel like I must above all things eat as healthy as I can and move, doing whatever I can do. I feel like the clock is winding down as I abuse my body with bad food and not enough movement. I feel such an urgency to not mess around and get this weight off now. I can not do all the exercise I was doing my joints are hurting, my muscles are knotting up and I have been feeling terrible.
In the last week I have dropped my calories to 1200 and am walking, nothing else. I am feeling better and dropping weight also. I know I am kind of rambling but these blogs are kind of like talking out loud, so be patient with me, I am still learning about me. I feel like I have an addiction to sweets. I don't know when to stop. One is never enough. I just don't bring any around. I get enough sugar in the food I eat. If I never touch sweets I do real good on eating healthy. I feel like if I don't stick with this program and get this weight off once and for all and I mean in the next year and a half I will not be here to enjoy anything. I am praying that I have the chance to do this. I hope everyone that reads this blog and needs to get weight off takes this real serious and gets it done. We are all here for each other.

    Keep working at it, and you'll get there! Take whatever size steps you need to-baby steps forward are better than standing still or going backwards.

And it sounds like you really WANT to make this change. That's a good sign you can do it. You won't really make any progress if your heart's not in it, but having decided that you CAN and WILL change your lifestyle goes a long way to getting you there. Sounds like you've got that part down.
