am i being really honest with myself or am i making excuses?

Saturday, November 06, 2010

how committed am i?
do i really want this?
if i am really committed why havenīt i got to goal yet?
why havenīt i lost more?
why do i loose and keep putting back on?
does that mean i really donīt want to loose the weight in the first place?
what are my reasons for coming to spark people?
why to i stay?
are those reasons still valid?
do i still want this?is it worth it?
are my reasons for going away from my healthy lifestyle on occasions?
are those reasond real or just excuses?
can i let stress get the better of me?
should i let stress get the better of me?
do i know how i got big in the first place?
do i still do the same things that made me big ?
when yes why?
have i any self control?
have i any self esteem?
do i even know what the last two are?
what do i want from life?what do i have to do to get what i want out of life?
am i doing them?
if not why not?

here are just a few questions i ask myself everynow and then and it is something i think we should all ask ourself now and then no matter how far we are on this journey or even if we are where we want to be.the trick is being honest when you answer.only you know weather you are being honest or not.i know i havenīt been as honest as i could be with my self.if i had been i am sure i would be further in on my journey than i am so all i have to say is


thankls for taking time to read this blog for me.hope it helps you clarify some areas in your life liked it helped me and please feel free to kick butt every now and again,my butt too.

    Wonderful Blog Karen .. Yes it is hard to hear the truth even from ones self..
I am so glad you are realising it is total commitment or why bother at all .
This is what I tell my self every day! When I wake up at 5.30 am and it is cold outside and just so lovely and snug in my bed..
Why would I want to get out and get dressed and head off to the Pool and Gym in the dark and the rain ?
.My answer to myself?
Because I want too .. I want to execise and eat well .. I want to be healthy and fit I want to see my children and grandchildren grow up and be successful in life ...and most of all I want to live!!
great Blog darling ... I love you !! Susie

    I think we all have moments of doubt...but I believe we need to figure our (small) treats in to our daily calorie (etc) ranges so as not to feel deprived and go off on a binge.

The greatest fears are the fear of failure and the fear of success! Are some people afraid to succeed thinking they won't need their Spark friends any more? Not true! I have seen lots of pages under Motivation ... pages of people at goal who say they are at goal for varying lengths of time because they DO stay on SP!

As to why we get big in the first place, there are probably many reasons. They usually involve just plain NOT living the lifestyle (balanced nutrition, fitness, water and sleep) that Spark People recommends!

For myself, just like Toastmasters and A Course in Miracles, I feel I'll be on Spark People FOREVER!

Here's wishing a wonderful friend an equally wonderful weekend! emoticon

    Hello my friend, Karen,

You are always very thoughtful and on point. You hit the nail on the head!!! It is most important to be honest with ourselves so we can learn and grow and reach our goals. I also believe it is a process and it takes some meat longer to cook than others and that is OK.

I love having you for a friend and thanks for taking the time to visit with me as often as you do. YOU are a VERY GOOD FRIEND. emoticon emoticon

Yes, very valid questions we all need to ask ourselves sometimes. One question I need to always ask myself is, "do I really want to have this because it feels good to eat, or do I just feel that I am not worthy of taking care of myself?"

Thanks for the inspiration and the constant encouragement, I know I would probably have given up if I didnt have your support!

i guess it is time for another update.

Saturday, October 30, 2010

sorry it has been so long since my last blog.it was not as if i had nothing to say but more the case i didnīt have the time.alot has happened since my last blog.first i was still putting on weight but the last 2weeks that has done a turn around and i lost 5 lbs.i hope this turn around will be around for a while and doesnīt decide to make another u turn.i guess that is down to me though lol.just altered one of my mini goals and that is to reach one-der-land by my 2nd spark anniversary(23lbs)which is 8 weeks away which will be an average of 3lbs a week.must just pull my socks up and my pants in i guess.also just noticed that i am only 2.5lbs away from my other mini goal and that is to loose enough weight to use the kids trampoline.plan to do that this week all being well but i wont be able to use it because of the op but at least i would know i could use it.this will be a big biggy for me.will keep you all informed.since the last blog my husband and the kids are all back home .ayman has been in hospital for 4 days .he is still ill though.zakariya is also ill.talking of zakariya we have been fighting to keep him in main stream school which had involved lots of meetings with schools,social workers,drīs etc.i am afraid to say we lost that fight and zakariya must go to a special school.which means now sorting out cancelling fees,sorting out new school fees seeing about getting help with the school fees etc.also have a lot more drīs visit test etc for the new school for his accessment etc.so will also be buzy with that for a while.have been buzy baking and organising things for zakariya to have a leaving party at his after school club and his school.baking cakes and doing goodie bags for 50 kids in total anbd i didnīt eat a single cake or sweet.hope this is a sign for the coming up halloween.re me.i am still having a lot of back pain(upper right shoulder blades region)with the lung embolies and still going twicw a week for the quick/IRN worth for my tablets amount.but with the iron injections i only have to go once a week now.woo hoo.i am still having a lot of pain in my right ankle bone ,the dr thinks it is athrose i have an appointment with the orthopedic on the 3rd of november but have to cancel it now as aymans lung specialist appointment is on the same day and time(the earliest the lung specialist could fit him in)and that is more important.who knows how long i will have tó wait for my next orthopedic appointment i waited 5 weeks for this one.so is life when you have kids i guess.hubby is also not well he has toothache and his dentist is on holiday till tuesday where he has an appointment.hands up who can tell me how my husband is acting(yes you guessed it like a big baby and that it is theend of the world.)so thatīs it up to know that is the total update i donīt think i missed anything out except this.

re-evalueating my steps.

Monday, September 27, 2010

for along time i have not been wearing my pedometer while i was on exercise ban i did what the dr said and did no exercise even though i was still walking to and from school etc. i didnīt see it as exercise but part of normal day to day life.i have a couple of spark friends who said i should have tracked it as exercise but i never did as i didnīt see it as that.now i am sorry i didnīt. i have missed 1000īs and 1000īs exercise minutes because of it,well today i put on my pedometer just going back and forth from the school 3 times ,going to my drs and going shopping.nothing extra,no extra exercise or anything have i done18,919 steps so far.(so much for gentle exercise.i per posed with another sparker who is having problems getting her walking in that we can do it together and we could both try and get 5,000 steps in.looks like that will have to be re evaluate.shall i now go for the 10,000steps per day instead of 5,000 or be more adventerous and go for 15,000 steps a day.before my op and exercise ban etc i always tried for over 20,000 steps a day but more often than not it was over 25,000steps a day.i still have a long way to go to get back there but at least i know why i get tired doing what i see as nothing when really it was the exercise that is making me tired and that what i have been doing on a daily basis was not nothing. emoticon

i had a word again with the dr and though for the tablets it is better if i avoid the listed foods in my last blog she said if i normally eat them i should do so and they would alter the tablets accordingly.i.e will need more tablets than if i donīt est them.

vitamin k is what the boody uses to thicken the blood and as i have 7 lung embolies my blood needs to be thinner which is why i should avoid foods with vitamin k.the tablets they used to help thin the blood are based on a substance used as a rat poisen.so i would rather take less than more of them if you know what i mean.so i plan to carry on eating the low calorie things i really love,i.e spinat and tomatoes but in moderation and make the use of all the other foods that are not on the list.it will mean that losing weight might be a bit slower as most of the things on the list are what i normally eat when trying to lose weight but the thought of taking more tablets to me is not a good option also the thought of my blood getting thinner quicker is a priority to me as many of you know my father died from a lung embolie and the thought really scares me.so though it is not as bad as i oritginally thought as the dr said if i eat the food on the list they can alter the medication accordingly the option if is there for me.so look forward not backwards and start everyday with a smile wheather you feel like it or not. emoticon

    Slow and steady always wins the race anyway, and many of us have proved that again and again. Every time I try something "quick and dirty," I end up worse off than I started.

As for foods, I could make a long list, but I'm trying to balance it all out.

    I have wanted a "fast" weight loss for so long, but my thyroid condition gets in the way of that. It's taken a while for me to be satisfied with slower progress toward my goal.

Stay healthy, eat what you can, find alternatives to your old favorites, but most of all, don't stress or think negative thoughts when you're losing slower than you would like. Look at this as a chance to discover new favorite foods that are low in Vitamin K.

There have been leaps and bounds in medication and treatment in the last few years so please do not worry that what happened to you father will happen to you it is highly unlikely.. Most men wait until it is too late to go for treatment ..
You are seeing your doctor quite often and she will keep a check on you ..
I hope you will feel better soon my love .. Love always Susie and Bobby emoticon

    Sounds like Coumadin? There are plenty of "diet" foods not mentioned in your list. But it would make it easier for you if you put your list into alphabetical order.

I agree with you - better to avoid the foods than to take extra blood thinner.

    I would definitely go back and ask them to give you a list of what you CAN eat. I noticed several things missing from the "no-no" list: green beans, corn, fish, wheat-free breads, lean beef, chicken, watermelon, raspberries, cottage cheese, almonds, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, bananas, etc. I would insist they give you a "doable" list and go from there.

I tried to think of good foods to eat as I was reading your list, lemons, limes, onions, leeks are the first that came to my mind. Then, I asked, did they give you a list of what you can eat? That would be helpful.

I know you will find a way. I BELIEVE IN YOU!!

    I see no mention of meats or pastas on that list. See if those are allowed?

    me neither steph till my sister told me and suggested i googled,which i did and this is the list that came out.tracy(my sister)was given a leaflet with information on k-protien which is what her dr calls vitamin k.

susie thanks for the suggestion not certain on the beans because my sister said they also contained vitamin k even though they wasnīt on the list when i googled.i also never really thought much about vitamin k and how important it is in our body.i didnīt even know it is what causes the blood to thicken and in some cases like mine to clot.see we all live and learn.

    Hi karen love,
I think you need to talk to your doctor or health consultant about this, they should give you a menu to follow .

I will try to help you sort this out
Perhaps instead of milk you can have coconut milk
Sweet Potato's
Green Tomatos's chopped and cooked
Red and gold bell peppers
Silver Beet
Kiwi fruit
Baked Beans
Olive Oil
These are just a few suggestions . But I would check with your health consultant before you do anything
Much Love Susie emoticon
