Tired of talking about it!!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I got side tracked. I got to reading some of my past blogs. Wow, up and down, up and down.
Here I am again bigger than ever. If I don't get this right I am not going to be here to enjoy any kind of life. I'm tired of talking about the weight loss, what to eat, how to exercise, how not to exercise because I'm so big. I just want this weight gone once and for all. I'm tired of worrying about it. I only know one way to lose weight and that is to count calories, do the exercise that I can, eat lots of vegetables and fruit. I'm not big on meat. I like fish and some chicken. If that does not get the weight off then I am dead. I have to do this for me.
Oh well that's enough of that. One day at a time is it.

    One day at a time is my mantra. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is a mystery. Never give up because we are worth it! emoticon

Say a pray for me.

Saturday, April 21, 2012

Well i have reached an all time high. I made myself weigh this morning and it took me awhile to get over it. I weighted 354 pounds. As you can see I decided to eat what I wanted and not do any more moving than I had too. Well here I sit scared to death that I will have a stroke or a heartattack. I would not even look at Spark to get help. I know this has to stop now. I really do want to live. But my actions say different. What is wrong with me that fast food, sweets and junk are more important to me than having a life that I enjoy. I very rarely go any where where I have to walk. It hurts too much. I wear the same old big clothes. I want to have fun, wear cute clothes, go to interesting places with my husband . All I know to do is start this day eating healthy, walk as far as I can, log my food in at Sparks, check in everyday and read other peoples struggles and victories.
If anyone reads this say a little pray for me that I get my life back.

He might have won if he had stuck it out.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all up hill, When the friends are low and the debts high and you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit. Life is queer with its twist and turns as every one of us sometimes learns and many a failure turns about. When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow you may succeed with another blow. Success is failure turned inside out. The silver tint of the clouds of doubt and you can never tell how close you are. It may be near when it seems so far. So stick to the fight when you are hardess hit. Its when things seem worst that you must not quit.

This and that

Saturday, June 25, 2011

I put one cup of vanilla almond milk, a frozen banana, 1 tablespoon of cacao, 1 tablespoon of honey and froze them in the freeze. Oh so good and my husband even wanted him one.
Its fun to think up healthy alternatives to thinks that are too many calories or they do funny things to you like binging. I looked on Spark recipes and they have lots of raw desserts.
I like using agave nectar for sweeteners or honey. Honey is my favorite. A neighbor brought us some fresh squash and zucchini and they were wonderful. I chopped up an onion put lots of spices and olive oil and cooked for about 20 minutes. You can't beat fresh food. Another neighbor brought us some tomatoes. We have been enjoying bacon and tomato sandwich's.
They are so good. We had a garden last year and we really enjoyed it. This year we just don't have time. We are building a little log cabin in the woods on our place and we will move into it when we are through. We are doing all the work so it will probably take a year or so. We are just enjoying doing it at our pace. I wanted a special door and we hunted high and low for someone to make it out of cypress. We found a man to do it. I wanted big heavy hinges and straps half-way of the door, I wanted a speak-easy opening at the top, lion head knocker and black clavets on the instead of the door. We found a beautiful lock set that goes with it. It looks like an old door to a castle. Well it will be our little log castle. The ceiling in the living room are vaulted and I found the perfect chandelier for it. It is so much fun hunting for unique things. And the best part is we will have it paid for when we get through. We are only doing it as we can pay for it.

    I just discovered vanilla almond milk! I don't use cow's milk. I am so excited about your log cabin! I dream about retiring to one...

    Building your own home is such an admirable endeavor; and so good for physical fitness. And, the added benefit is being able to make it as unique and fitting to one's lifestyle and personality as possible. Congratulations.

    This reminds me of my parents when I was younger. They bought the 15 acres first and paid it off then while doing that they saved up and paid for all the stuff for the house and my dad and papa built the whole thing. They have been house payment free since 1990.
I remember how fun it was back then picking out the stuff for my room. Now that I'm older I've enjoyed finding yard sale finds and painting them into something that is different and gives it a new look, so I know how much fun you must be having.

No lose in four weeks!!

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Its been four weeks and I have not lost a pound. Two weeks ago I upped my exercise to riding my stationary bike for 36 minutes and to weight lifting 25 minutes and my treadmill for 35 minutes. I put my calories up to 1500 to be able to do the exercise. Spark recommends eating more but I just can't do that yet. I have always lost weight on 1200 calories and I really don't know how to act eating this much. I am used to being punished for being over weight.
You must eat 1200 and eat stuff you really don't care for but it is diet food. You must be irritable and fainting, that way you know you will lose a lot. I have lost 100 pounds a couple of times and have not kept it off. I wonder why? I was on a diet. When I got off the staving I ate everything in sight and went back to fast foods and sweets. Wow, did I really think I would keep it off. Well this time I am changing my attitude about food. I eat what I like. I can have anything I want. I have to make wise choices. Will a couple of bites satisfy me? Why do I have to have the whole thing? The only thing I have given up is processed sweets. That was my choice. I have had plenty in my life so I don't think I will miss them. I do eat a little honey , 1 tablespoon. If I really want some ice cream I mix up a frozen banana and almond chocolate milk and freeze it and I have ice cream that is good for me and will not make me binge. If I want a sweet I eat fruit or mix a few nuts, honey and cocoa and freeze it and you have a sweet that is healthy. I don't want them often but they are there if I want them. I am learning for the first time to enjoy eating healthy. I feel so good. I feel like when I finish my exercise in the morning that I can do anything I set my mind too. I'm tired of fighting this weight. I want to eat and enjoy life and feel good about myself and for the last three months I have.
I know the weight will turn lose when my body feels like it should. I will continue eating like I am and doing my exercise. I know I did not get this big by eating 1500 calories and exercising so its no biggy that I have not lost in 4 weeks I will sooner or later. And if I never loss another pound I will continue eating 1500 calories and exercising and be happy with my life.
I know I will be a lot healthier.

    I've had quite a few stalls ..... I now go in and see where I think changes are to be made ..... I've cut back on carbs somewhat and that did the trick ... takes a change every once in a while.

    That is frustrating. Do you have a food in your diet that you eat every day? One you don't think you could do without? If so, try not having that food for a week and see if that might make the scale move. I am a firm believer that our bodies will crave food that are not very good for us and eating them will stall us out. I have found through blood tests, that the food the tests say my body doesn't tolerate well is usually the food I don't think I can do without so now I just use that as my gage.

How are your measurements? You may just be redistrubting and gaining muscle.

    happy you are doing so well....I have decided not to pay attention to the scale...I might go to weighing in only once a month or something because I get discouraged when I feel I should be down more... SP also had me increase my calories when I started exercising more so I haven't lost that much but I feel better and that is what is important.
