Only 1/2 please, thank you.

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

So far my goal of only eating 1/2 of what I am served has been working! I find myself thinking **this is for the overall goal** everytime I take my knife and cut my food in half prior to eating it. Its actually easy and most of all, Im realy satisfied after eating just half of what I'm served.

The success in this journey for me will be through food! Its me falling for cravings and eating eveything in sight that has got me back to where I am now. I appreciate I can eat what I want (still staying away from a lot of fried foods), but by cutting it in half its all good. We will see how the month ends, but so far...THUMBS UP.

**cheers, with a half a glass of wine** ha!

    I had to stop myself from eating two bowls of serial at snack time a minute ago. This post was inspiring.

    Drives me crazy also. I don't think that people are learning spelling or grammar in school any more.

    Thank you for posting this, because it has irritated me as well. People may have been spelling it the same way that they pronounce it.

'Who wants to go out to eat?'

Monday, November 22, 2010

..Everyone raises their hands, but these same individuals look at me crazy when I ask them to join me in a workout or to take part in a biggest loser contest...

I really wonder if that will change one day.



Cancun and letting loose!

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Yes I did, yes I did! No, I did not pull a "Spring Break," but I totally let loose in Cancun. Every year I attend an event that takes me somewhere abroad. Last year was a cruise to Bahamas and this year was Cancun. Now last year was a blast..and this year was too. The difference? Well, although weight is ALWAYS on my mind and it makes me feel conscious about every outfit, etc I have on....THIS YEAR I DIDN'T CARE!!!!! This past weekend in Cancun, I put on a swimsuit (yeah, you read right...I still cannot believe that one) and went out on the crowded beach and went into the ocean--yes, I did. AND THEN, I walked my happy tail in my swimsuit (no cover up) to the even more crowded pool and particpated in the events there. I love it! I figured WHO CARES about these couple of dimples in my LEGS and these THIGHS that would make the chicken at Churches Chicken jealous...I just wanted to relax and do me with out thinking "you're too fat for that." So cheers to me for letting loose...I needed that for my own self!!

Umm..these were filled with water...

Thanks Cancun for that...and for topping off the 5 pounds total I gained this month (ha...)...I FEEL AWESOME!!!!!!

    It's a wonderful feeling not to be concerned about weight loss ALL of the time. Sometimes we just gotta let go and let loose. Hooray for you!!! I had a week like that last week. I threw caution to the wind and enjoyed myself. True enough, I felt horribly physically the next morning, but I enjoyed myself for that moment. I'm back on track now but who knows when I will do it again? I feel you girl, I feel you!!!!

I'll take that journey with you! I think you'll be shocked at how much you commitment to not work more than 9 hours a day will GREATLY improve you ability to follow through on everything else. Granted you'll still have "those" days, but overall, it's really helps!

Congratulations and, well, I was going to say good luck, but luck has nothing to do with it... Good times!

    Thanks you guys. Its good to know I can motivate, especially when I feel horrible about gaining weight. Too bad I've already violated one of my pleges; I've worked well over 8 hours today (this job kills me)!

    Ebone'! You always give me something to reflect upon & your pledge continues that great trend! Thanks for opening up and sharing yourself with us here at SP. You motivate me and help me stay focused. It's like I can feel where you're coming from and that makes my journey that much more real. I know that I'm not alone. Dirty 30 in October?
