Responding to another persons Blog, just helped me !

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hi Everyone ! I'm having a couple rough weeks, but doing well. Today I responded to a blog in the attempt to help and to support someone, at the beginning of a separation, during their struggle. And till the end of my reply, I realized the blog had helped me...... So I thought I would share my response. First of all I congratulate you for posting this blog for two reasons. #1 SP/SF are so wonderful, caring, and always their to support you. #2 I'm on my 3rd week of separation after 17 yrs of marriage. My kids are grown and on their own. And I always used that excuse for not taking the time for myself. I also started loosing weight, advancing at my work. To go home to criticism after a long day at work, cleaning the house,laundry, and making dinner it started to hurt me emotionally/mentally. It was the hardest thing I ever did. But also the best decision for me. I can tell you after 3weeks I still have days that I'm thinking, is he taking care of himself, is the house being taking care of, does he have clean clothes. Then theirs days I have to giggle and say to myself, Who cares if he has clean socks and underwear! he he he I CAN SAY THAT I'M HAPPY WITH MYSELF !!!! And that's what matters..... So Thank you for posting! And hang in there... I am !!!

    Getting through a separation or divorce can be so very difficult. You get used to living a certain way then you have to change almost everything overnight. But no matter what, you have to decide rationally if you are being treated the way that you should be treated and that is what ultimately makes or breaks the relationship, in my view. Separation / divorce can be rough, but it may be the best decision you've ever made for yourself.

    Taking care of yourself is priority, and I commend you on being strong and logical, and a good listener to another who is going through the same. You are so right; you have to look after yourself, you have been doing the same for your family ... of course you will think of your family , because you are a caring and loving person.

    It takes time to get over a relationship, this has been your way of life for a long time. It is like a death, because it literally is the death of a marriage. But it gets better with time, especially if you shift your focus to other more important things, like YOU!

UNBELIEVABLE

Saturday, January 05, 2013

UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I'm not sure where to begin this blog at !?! Well, I haven't weighed myself since the holidays,. But at my weigh in today I couldn't believe what I saw... "I lost 2.5 lbs." I thought for sure that I gained weight.. I stepped on that scale 3x. LOL... Needless to say it made me happy and pushed me over the 25lb weight loss mark. emoticon emoticon

I'M READY TO ROCK AND ROLL !

Friday, January 04, 2013

I had good holidays, great food, and my family around me. That being said, I'M READY TO ROCK AND ROLL ! Time to start this year off fresh, clear the mind, and feed the soul with good healthy exercise and healthy food. Of course i gained a couple lbs. But I got excellent advise from a spark friend not to stress about the holiday food, and enjoy what's important. And that did make my holidays more enjoyable. (Thank you Ken) Once again thanks to my spark friends for support, and to all SP emoticon emoticon emoticon

Its sooo hard!!!!

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Its so hard to get past all this christmas food, especially since I'm cooking it. Of course I dont know how to cook the right serving amounts. I got to cook BIG batches. So I end up with so much food when everyone leaves. I tried to give it away... However.... dont tell my family , but I did make alot of nutritional changes to the ingredient's.. And NO ONE noticed. Yes I did over eat a little, but the damage could of been much worse. I tried ! I'm very happy that everyone likes dark meat of the turkey which I love the white meat.. I have enough of that for this week and also put some in the freezer. I used fat free gravy, nobody noticed that. LOL In the filling I used whole wheat bread, egg whites and chicken broth. Anything that I normally used reg milk for I used almond milk. The deviled eggs I used fat free mayo, I was a little worried about that one, But not a word from anyone. So I was grinning while I watched everyone chow down. I was just blessed to have my kids all eating at the table at the same time. And yes , they all left before it was time to do the dishes. You gotta love them anyway.. LOL...

    Great work!

Holiday dinners are going to be a higher calorie day, thats why I try to eat on the low end of my range for a few days before and/or after- and kind of "bank" or save some extra caloies for it,

Must have worked, I ate more on Christmas, and still lost 2 lbs for the week!

Best wishes!

    Good job on finding ways to cut some of the calories from your Christmas feast! It's cool that nobody noticed as well. My personal opinion when it comes to these feasting holidays (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter) is to enjoy them. There are 365 days in a year and only maybe 10 of those days does food play a major role. So enjoy the food without going crazy because there are plenty of days to come that you can be super diligent and make all of the right decisions!

So Far Soooo Good !!!!

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I can hardly believe it ! Yesterdays weigh in concluded in a total weight loss of 20.5 lbs. I did hit a plateau for a couple weeks and didnt loose anything. I'm trying different foods and seams like it's working. I always want to THANK my SP friends cause they are always on my mind and are ALWAYS there when you need them. emoticon emoticon
