What is it???

Monday, March 18, 2013

What is it that makes someone think that it's okay to tell someone that they look like they have gained weight? I had 2 people last week tell me that...you know what that does to my self esteem?!?!?!?!?!?

    Wow. People are stupid!! Are these goofballs close to you?

Consideration for other people is one of my big sticking points, maybe to the extreme. It drives me NUTS when people say and do things so offhandedly without taking a moment's pause to consider how their actions might affect someone. I'm so sorry you had an encounter like that!

    Yeah I don't know. I don't even like family telling me that. My grandma-in-law, lol, used to tell me all the time. Like duh, as if I DIDN'T know that already! (I really did gain weight at that point). But come on...that really would bring someone down. If you have nothing nice to say....... emoticon

HEY!!!

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Well, it's been MANY days since i have posted a blog so i figured i would do one today. Why wait? So today i ran and i ran 2.82 miles in 12:08. That was the first time i have ran in weeks so i was very surprised that it was not too bad. Before if some of you remember i was having trouble with shin splints...so i took a little time off to heal and today i had a pain free run. I was completely excited. I felt somewhat accomplished. I ran longer than i had before bc i didn't feel any pain...but the only thing was is it was so FREAKING cold that my chest started to hurt.

Just wanted to say hey to all of my friends and hope all is well!

xoxo

    Awesome time! I'm with HOLLY -- I am a more slow and steady runner, and I don't know that I've ever been able to boast a time like that! Way to go!

Is it possible?

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Is it possible that someone can have a 4 lb difference from saturday to wednesday??? I weighed saturday and weighed around 185 today i weighed and i weigh 181...that just seems unreal...

Need some input before i get all excited and then it's not really weight lost.

    Woohoo! Especially in the first few months, the fluctuations can be pretty big. Maybe you did more cardio-centric exercise that week, maybe you were retaining water, maybe the Scale Gods smiled on you...so many things affect it! But take it and run -- that's great!!

Yes, it's possible! I agree that it was probably water, but it's still a solid loss.

Keep up the hard work. Some-times you will work just as hard or harder though and the scale won't budge. So... remember this great moment. LOL

    Wow...okay, well i was worried bc yes i did have a bad diet week last week and ate all kinds of really unhealthy food. That makes me feel better...I'm so shocked. I expected to get on the scale this morning and see a few added pounds but thats a great surprise! Just wondering if it was even possible.

THANKS SO MUCH!

    Yes. You could have been holding on to some water weight. You did have a bad diet week last week so your body could have been holding on to a lot of sodium, etc.

Horrible...just horrible.

Friday, January 25, 2013

So this has just been a bad week for my diet. First off I had the rotovirus throughout the weekend then had to go on a business trip to MS and was there for 2 days where they feed us the most unhealthy food and i had to eat take out for 2 nights as well. I feel horrible....i didn't loose my pound this week and the DH just says "well, just loose 2 next week." I look at him and said "SERIOUSLY!!" If it was that easy i sure as hell would loose more in a week than what i am...

I haven't tracked any food or exercise.

I'm kicking myself in the ass right now as we speak. Monday starts a new day.

I miss my friends!

Love you all and hope you have a wonderful and healthy weekend.

    This week will be better, right?:). My husband is one who tries to be supportive and always ends up saying something that gets him in trouble:). He lost 50 pounds in 5 months...I lost 10, so his support sounds about the same as your hubby's:). The good thing is they try!

I know it's sooooo hard but try to find a few positive things that you've done this week. You went on your business trip... That's great... you have a job. :) I know husbands try. Mine stuck his foot in his mouth this week too and upset me, but I know he loves me and is just trying to support me.

Thinking of you. Hope you have a great weekend.

What is it????

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

What is it in our heads that tell us just one won't hurt??? I go in to a convinent store to pass donuts....freaking delicious yummy oeuy gooey donuts. In my head i hear "get just one...it won't hurt." But i also know it won't be just one. That 1 donut will send me into binge eating throughout the day. So, did i get the donut you ask??? NO I DID NOT! I ignored that little voice in my head and avoided the donuts while exiting. Lol. I just want to know what makes us think that just one won't hurt............

Good for you... Think of the donut as all your "HATERS" the ones that love you would give you hugs and happy thoughts not a stupid donut. LOL!!!

One for me will hurt... so you're not alone.
