counting the days

Sunday, April 03, 2011

I'm counting the days until I can go shopping and not be wore out. My husband and I had to make a grocery store run. My blood sugar dropped and I got a Snickers Marathon Energy bar and ate it. It helped. I had brought our lunch with us. I had a green smoothie and he had a couple of sandwich's. When we got to the car we ate and got revived. That is awful that you are just wore out grocery shopping. It is a biggggggggg store but good gravy 30 pounds ago I could have walked it two or three times. Oh well it will come off. I must say fat not it.
I act like the fat does not belong to me. It is some kind of it. I feel like it does not belong and underneath all of this is the woman that wants to be free. I will free me. This wall of fat will fall to the way side and I will replace it with muscles and smooth skin .
I have enjoyed reading a lot of blogs today. It is so inspiring to read some of the peoples blogs that have lost weight and kept it off. They look like totally different people and they act different also.
I got my husband to take a picture of me today and I looked like humpty dumpty. Ohhh I just hate what I have done to me. I will put the picture up when I lose 50 pounds. I want to take a picture ever 50 pounds until I reach goal.


Ain't love grand?

Saturday, April 02, 2011

Well folks you made my day. All the encouragement, wise advice, just seeing all the love caring people have for each other made me feel like I can do anything. It does not matter how many times we start over as long as we do not give up. I had lost 130 pounds a few years ago and then proceeded to put it back on. Now I have 200 pounds to lose. It is amazing what we can do to ourselves, isn't it? Well I will never give up if I do I know I will just get bigger and bigger and you know your body can only stand so much and then it will die. I want to live and I want to lose this weight and encourage others to do the same. I know it will take at least two years but so what I have to live and I might as well be doing something healthy.
my husband and I went shopping today and lunch time came around and we went to an Asian restaurant. We ate soup and vegetables. I was real proud of us usually we eat a couple of plates full and leave so full we are sick. I forgot about the salt. I don't know why they have to put so much salt on their food. I guess we will have to start taking some food with us in a thermos. When we lost all that weight a while back I would put spaghetti or beans and rice , stir fry whatever in a thermos and we enjoyed that. But we love to eat out too. Someday you don't want to go through all the hassle getting ready to go somewhere. You want to just put your clothes on and go. Oh well I have rambled enough. Thanks again for being there.

I am really scared about my weight. I did not sleep very much last night from tossing and turning all night. My side would go to sleep and I would turn over, that side would go to sleep and I would have to turn over. I snored so loud that when I would go to sleep I would wake myself up. I woke up this morning realizing I was crushing my insides. I'm having headaches, neck and shoulder aches. When I walk very far the hips, knees and heart hurts from the strain. You would wonder why I keep losing the same weight over and over. I know I am killing my self with of all things a fork. My husband has gained 50 pounds and he is suffering also. We both decided to weight this morning and be truthful with what we weight. It was so hard for me to admit I weight 340 pounds. Its not like he did not guess I am morbid obese. You know love is blind but hey get real. I weighted 150 pounds when we got married so I'm sure not the same woman. I am just venting a little this evening. I know what I have to do and I know Spark and Spark friends will help me any way I need it. This is the first day of eating healthy to a better life.

    Getting back to SparkPeople is the best thing to help you on your journey and yes it's gonna be a long journey but if you make small goals it will help you greatly. Reward you self when you reach each goal but don't reward yourself with a food reward like a dinner out. I know my first instinct would have been to do that but we have to change our mindset off of food.. Maybe a movie night out or rent a favorite video night.
Hopefully your husband will support you thru it all and be understanding in the rough times.! emoticon If you are doing it together it is even better!! Good luck and remember we are here for support and motivation!
emoticon Today is the first day of the rest of your life. How will you choose to live it?

Whey protein

Saturday, March 12, 2011

Does anyone have any experience with this. The doctor put my mother-in-law on whey to build her up. I started drinking it yesterday after I did my weight lifting. It seemed to help me recover faster. I rode my recumbent bike today and did some wall pushups and I was trembling real bad and I drank my vanilla whey protein, added a cup of strawberries to it, and in just a little while I stopped trembling. I know it will take me a while to get back to doing all my exercises and lose the 35 pounds I gained. It will take a couple of weeks to get back on track and I hope the Whey helps.

    I used to use Whey all the time in smoothies, shakes, etc. I don't weight train, but it does help stabalize my blood sugar levels.

    I to use this sometimes, but only a certain kind. I have put banana, peanut butter, flax meal. Strawberry's, wheat germ, what ever you want. I buy Dr. Mercola, he has a web site. Using your Almond milk is good also. I like the chocolate Whey and the Chocolate Almond milk. I buy the Almond milk with out the soy.

    We use the whey powder in our smoothie every morning -- use diet blueberry juice (he also uses cherry and grape and pineapple) add a banana (we freeze them so smoothie is thicker) - then he adds all our grains (flaxseed, hemp, etc -) and he opens up omega 3 capsules and puts the oil in the shake -- My husband was in an accident and has a lot of pain ... this combo drink every morning has helped him regain some strength and stability that he had lost .... he depends on a cane to walk, but he does feel a lot better as medications were making him feel so bad ... his cholesterol also dropped down to 160 to 180 at all his blood tests ...

I would suggest it to anyone ... it is a lot of protein and we all need it. He likes the chocolate whey powder.

green drink

Friday, March 11, 2011

I am so proud I had a green drink for breakfast: 1 cup carrot juice, 1 frozen banana, hand full of Kale and a hand full of spinach, 1/2 c oatmeal, blend and drink
For lunch I had a green drink: 1 cup of vanilla Almond milk, 1 organic banana, 1 cup of blueberries, handful of kale and a hand full of spinach, blend and drink.
I did my weight lifting for about 20 minutes. I drank a glass of whey protein with water.
I have been walking a lot today also.
I will have spaghetti for supper and maybe an apple for snack.
I am proud I have stopped talking about what I'm going to do and how much weight I am going to lose and am doing something about it. No if, ands or buts about it. Its my year.
