Laughing all the way!

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I have made it three weeks eating healthy. Today was my weight day. I gained one pound. For some reason that struck me funny. I have counted calories, wrote them down exercised some. In general did a good job this week. I admit I could have exercise more but I could not get my food right and I would have low sugar. I think I finally got it. I needed a little more protein.
I also know how good walking is for me, for the blood sugar and over all feeling stronger and good. So this morning I went out to walk. I got to walk five minutes and it started raining. That struck me funny also. I will wait between showers and make another lap, little rain won't get me down. I have done real good these last three weeks and I am looking forward to getting my life back like I want it so these little things like scales, rain, dropping blood sugar is funny. Its just another little things trying to set me back and it won't work. I use to let the scales rule me but not now. My clothes are looser, my attitude is wonderful. I can be just living life and I will have a flash of when I reach my goal and I laugh. That strikes me as funny also. This transformation is so great it makes me laugh. I know this is a long process but what fun I will have and I will be laughing all the way. emoticon

All in a day.

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Its thursday and I am making my menu out for the day. No thought of doing anything different.
I am just glad I have today to make some good choices. I am trying to eat a lot of vegetables all different kinds. I am enjoying thinking up good things to eat for my husband and I . We have decided not to go out to eat for anything. We loss better when we do. I am eating kale everyday.
I never give it a thought to make a salad out of kale. That's what I'm having for lunch, apiece of salmon, big bowl of kale,spinach, bellpepper, garlic, onion, mushrooms, sauté them add to bowl, small tomatoes, sprite of Bragg amino acid spray, some dressing that the health store makes that is vegan, hot peppers. That is a lot of chewing but you really get satisfied. I'll have snap beans, new potatoes and turnip greens for supper. I will have popcorn and pistachios for a snack tonight. I had oatmeal, honey, almond milk and banana for breakfast. I'll try to work in 1/2 cup of pineapple somewhere today. I try to stay around 1300 calories sometimes 1350 . I know the more vegetables, whole grain, fruits, whole wheat pasta that you will lose and be a lot healthier. I am so looking forward to the transformation that will occur as I stick to eating healthy.
I read somewhere as you lose weight your world gets bigger, you are not taking up so much space. You notice things that you have not noticed before. Isn't that neat? You can sit in any chair and not be afraid of it breaking or you hanging over. You can sit in booths and be comfortable. You can walk through a crowded space and not be all over everyone. You will not be the biggest person in the room. All kinds of things that a person who is not obese does not worry about or even think about. That's what I want and will get.

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.

yes we all get discouraged with our weight loss, but we all have to support each other. emoticon

    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.
