Dangerous visit

Friday, July 20, 2012

I have just visited my mother
- And as usual I have put on more than 1 kg
The cubbards are filled with nuts
and chocolate
and there is buter and peanut butter
and crackers
It is seldom I go there.
I can think of what to do - now safely at home. What do you do?

    Nothing you can do...Let it go and move on! Beating yourself up over it is not productive.

Look at the good parts of your visit and focus on that. As you stated you don't go there often...hopefully you enjoyed it!

    It's hard to eat the way that works for me when I'm around others who indulge in snacks, etc.

I'm in the beginning stages of practicing mindfulness when I eat. I suspect that will help me more than anything else I've tried.

I usually overeat around other people in order to feed myself emotionally.

Happy day without focus on food

Saturday, June 09, 2012

As I wrote some days ago
Iīve noticed that slim people donīt eat in between meals.
And it is me who is the first wondering about next meal, and getting hungry

Yesterday I was called on my phone whether I would exhibit my ceramics in an art tent at a market near by...
I already had another -in my eyes important commitment that day -
A friend convinced I had to go - it is my life my job. So I gathered my things and went this morning..
From 9 am to 5 pm and I didnīt have time to prepare my lunch emoticon
I talked with people, had some ceramic work to do and took photos of the event
The sun was shining - I was beside a painter and we decided to do some exercise together some days a week in the local rowing club. I got ideas for my ceramic publicity and about different places to connect and I did not feel like eating in between meals.
Well I work alone with ceramics except when I teach.. Being with inspiring people completely got me from the track - always thinking about food. emoticon
Wonderful -But OK that day I sat down the most of the time..hmm This is the back side of exhibiting

    Thank you for taking time reading and commenting my blog.
Well I did buy some lunch .
My experience with being together with slim/thin people is that they donīt feel like eating and I do almost always.
I agree it is not good to make generalisations.
One always says why do people drink too much but not consider why do a lot of people not drink too much.
I have tried to study how thin people are different than me. My love, my friend I have just visited 15 days. My 2 brothers may be exceptions. They are all slim. Maybe it is them who are exceptions.
Anyway I try to help myself by studying them and their habits.
I also try to see differences between me before the age of 35 when I weighed 20 kg less and now. 20 kg overweight. And why I keep on getting heavy again after I have lost weight.
I see exaggerated focus on food rather than other things in life - maybe because I am always afraid of eating too much or eating something wrong rather than just focusing on other aspects of life. emoticon .. for me at least right now.

    First, like a magnet, I kept being drawn back to your Blog post, before I, finally, decided that I had to reply to it. I just do not want you to to have/get a wrong mind set (trap). Yes, I joined SparkPeople because like most, I want to lose weight, and I found SparkPeople. I gained weight because of an auto-immune illness and my doctor's put me on steroids, to suppress it; and one of the side affects is weight gain! Yes, this devastated me! Anyway, I just want you to know that for the majority of my life, I was slim; and I am disturbed by your statement that 'slim people do not eat in between meals.' This is an absolutely FALSE statement. This is like people making a statement about big people, that is not true, for the majority. Slim people, eat snacks, just like anyone else; the key is to eat in MODERATION! This goes for everyone. Anyway, I just wanted to give my opinion. Also, I am happy for you that you had so much fun at your show; that food never, even, entered your thought. However, everyone need to eat balanced meals; so never allow it to go too far, where you do not eat, anything, at all, for the day. I am a crafter, also; have been (because my mother did craft shows all of my life); and I, too, have the best times there (at the shows)!

Living with thin people and..

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

My love during 4 years is slim
And I have just spent a vacation with a girl who has become very thin
And me - I am the big one emoticon emoticon

What is the difference between me and them?
Maybe they are more physical active than me.
The main difference is that they never eat in between meals.
The thin girl can even forget to eat during the day. Once I drove a tour with her. I ate some breakfast. She ate a little. At lunchtime I went and got a wrap-up with chicken and vegetables and some mineral water. She did not eat anything but got a smoothie.
She had bought a little sandwich. She did not eat it until 7.30 pm.
I wonder how I began getting so hungry during the day. When I was a child I did not care less about food. The only thing I remember from my childhood is shepherdīs pie and the times I was forced to eat food I did not like.
Once I was on a tour with my grandmother and her friend. A day at dinnertime we had to find a place to eat in a hurry. My grandmotherīs friend would feel bad if we did not get food at this time. I was amazed. To day I am her - the friend.
I get in bad humour if I donīt get my food when it is mealtime.
It is very very seldom I have been so occupied with something that I have forgot eating in the past ten years.
When I am with thin people I suppress my hunger as I find it embarrassing it is always me - the fat one who wants food.
My new year promise was to focus on other things like my ceramic or.. in stead. I am trying. Than one day I fell in and bought a new cookbook with the worlds best diet and focused on food again and got fatter rather than thinner.

    Well - no inbetween meals except some fruit or vegetables and water instead of bred etc. This must be the conclusion.
Hunger is a rumble in the stomach rater than lust for food

A new chapter of life and new energy

Sunday, April 15, 2012

Alone now Without man and his Rott weiler- wo bit me.-
So now doors opens to me
I can have friends over - they were afraid of the Rott Weiler who jumped up to visitors to greet them
I can have people over for ceramic classes without interuptions by the dog
I can visit friends and family who live far away for some days
and I respect my need for working.
It is not nice to have to live alone. It also has advantages. ..

I have an exibition right now. Here I have been asked to join an internet side with other artists and craft people.
We would also like to do some projects together.
And then there is my own projects with summer classes. And an opening reception in august. And new classes this winter. emoticon
