I read this on Facebook today and it touched me.
For today, bask in being enough. Good enough, beautiful enough, happy enough, tall enough, sweet enough, enough. You are complete.
I read something else and the comment was "Human beings love transformation."
Think about this for awhile and think of the different kinds of transformations. I am working on my own transformation, not only physical but emotionally and mentally.
How do we react to transformations? Can we handle it? I think I will give it a try.

Today is weigh day. I tried talking to myself saying its okay if you don't lose anything, its only been a week, its okay if its a couple of pounds, its okay. I got on the scales and low and behold I had dropped 10 pounds. wow, I know I am holding a lot of fluid but I also know somewhere in there I dropped some fat too. I love a good start.
I went with my husband on a short business trip and we stopped at Wendy's and I got a small chili for lunch. I also had brought me a energy bar for the evening. We got home around five and we ate some stew I made yesterday. It was good. I'll have a couple of snacks this evening apple and yogurt and that will finish the day. I am so proud of me for not even thinking about eating something unhealthy. Usually when we go riding or on a business trip or whatever we snack ever so often. None of that today, yeah!!! I pray the good days like this out weigh the bad days. Maybe I'll just be a changed person and never be tempted and the weight will just fall off. Well I can dream can't I?

Its a mystery

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I can't believe what 6 days of staying on track has done. I have more energy, I slept better last night, I'm not hurting as bad in my joints. Isn't it amazing how if you give your body a chance it will try its best to heal itself. I have been eating very clean. My system is cleaning out. I am eating about 25 to 50 percent raw the rest cooked vegetables. I made a big pot of stew with lean hamburger meat at 95 percent lean. My friend raised some cattle with no hormones just plain natural and boy you can really tell the differences. I'm not much of a meat eater. I use to like fish and tuna a lot but I'm getting scared of how we are polluting the oceans and seas. I don't know what we will end up eating if the world does not wake up. We are not made to eat genetic engineered, radiated, hybrid seeds, etc. Why I let myself get this big is a mystery. Well not really I go off and get a bunch of fast food, sweets etc and we all know that stuff fats you like a pig in fact I think I heard or read they fatten pigs with a lot of this stuff. When I am mindful of what I'm eating and what's in it I am very choosy what I put in my body and I naturally loss weight. Its been a while since I've been that way but I have started back right 100 percent. I'm trying not to be angry at myself for looking for comfort in the wrong places. Do you find yourself going off in a coma? You know you do not think of what you are doing? You eat and you come to your self and a whole bag of cookies or candy are gone a quart of ice cream is gone. I mindless eat. I have my mind on it now. I write down everything I eat.

    emoticon This was a very encouraging blog. I need to be more conscious of getting in my fruits and veggies. I am writing down what I eat so I am aware of what I need, now just to get in the groove.

    I cannot think of one heavy person who has not asked that question. What I personally feels is, you can't loose until you are mentally ready. For me, It's an inside out job. The mind has to be ready, the heart has to be ready...then it happens. Anyways, that how it works for me.

So very happy to hear you are at the ready & doing it point!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Create the life you dream about

Monday, April 04, 2011

I saw this on facebook this morning and I like it. Author unknown: Create the life you dream about, step into the dream easily. Let the dream energize your waking moments believe more deeply, fully and certainly. I am taking a break for 10 or 15 minutes and I am visualizing a year from now or two and seeing me in the clothes I have in the closet I can not get in. I dream of wearing my hats again, going shopping for more hats. I dream of my granddaughter and I going shopping and having lunch. She told me other day she wanted to be pretty like her nana. I had to fight to keep from crying. She is five. I told her she was so pretty now.
She said as she flipped her hair, "I'm blonde". I have got to be fit and healthy to keep up with her. I must lose this weight and be able to live and enjoy my family. I know I can. My sweet husband said he felt like it was his fault last year we had lost 30 pounds and he had lost all he wanted and when I started bringing in chips, ice cream and candy, he should have said no thank you I want to keep on track. There is no way I would have ate all that stuff in front of him. I would have give it away. I told him its no ones fault that we gained it back except our own fault. We have to stand up and say no thank you. Who says every birthday, every outing we have to over do or even eat. I made some kind of people mad at me when I lost a hundred pounds a couple of years ago for not eating but I don't care if they cared about me they would not push food. We had to stand up for a lot of things in this world or get swayed into things that are not good for us physically, mentally, morally, etc.
It's time to go cook supper. I have to remember to get up and move around, take breaks, clean and cook. I love my Spark when I am Sparking and its hard to get away from it.
I must remember moderation in ALL things.

    Keep your dreams alive. I am a believer in visualizing what we want to accomplish as we work towards that goal.

    emoticonblog,we have choices to either eat that or say NO and eat something our body really needs.I can relate to your blog.I am constantly looking to my past when I weighed 125 and wore a size 10 and I just want to cry,sometimes I do and I just think positive and know I may not get back to 125 or a size 10,but as long as I am at a healthier weight and getting fit,I can live with that.Here's to moderation, emoticon emoticonYes we can! emoticonDiana:)

  Never stop dreaming about the life you want. If you don't dream and plan things out in your head how are you ever supposed to make it there in real life? I wish I could remember who originally said that, but it's not my quote, just one I really like to hang onto and bring out when I feel like I need it.

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.
