Isolated groups

Monday, June 14, 2010

Sometimes I wonder whether the best thing is to isolate fat people in groups with fat people
Alcoholics in groups with alcoholics and ex alcoholics etc
We have the same problem - being fat - Having a lifestyle and habits that lead to this state. How can we really from our hearts help each other when we have the same solution to problems-eating chocolate and cake
And exercise is not funny but a question of enormous selfdiciplin.

There has been made a test in US where a very fat person had to share apartment with a much too thin person. This was quite a success. I donīt know how this can be manifested other places. In Spark People fat and exfatpeople help each other. What about people who have never experienced a life where the distance to the next food store was of big importance and where the fridge could be the center of the day.
It was a thread in an art group here that gave me these thoughts: How combine art and diet? An artistic and very thin girl told me she sometimes forgot eating the whole day. This has never happened to me.
- Oh show me the way to the next (whiskey) sandwich bar - donīt ask me why - Donīt ask me why - Donīt ask me why!
It is said it takes 2 years to establish and maintain a new lifestyle for alcoholics. It must be the same for fat people. So first off with the pounds - then in with a new life style...

    Interesting and thought provoking.

I've never heard that it takes 2 years to establish a new and *really* clean life after alcohol, but I see no reason why it shouldn't be similar for any other major life overhauls no matter how long it does or doesn't take.

Misuse or abuse of substance is such a big part of ones identity that it takes more than removing the offending substance. One needs to be able to put something instead.

I've heard it takes two weeks to break a habit, but perhaps it takes 2 years before the new that you put instead becomes a real life change.

Wishing you the very best on your journey.

24.Pack the car for a trip with things for the new house emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
19. Screw down the things on the wall
18. Get an answer from my love about how many animals he will bring with him
17. Throw away as many things as possible. I have already given the things that could be valuable for other people
16. pack down the kitchen

14. clean clean clean and maybe repair some things
11. empty the shed

Will-power

Thursday, June 03, 2010

My motherīs aunt said to me many years ago:
Real will-power is

To eat one peanut
and NOT eat more

I must admit I am a week soul, so I seldom buy peanuts

  


Halfway

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Iīve lost 8 kg actually almost the double in pounds.
It is nice for me that me efforts work.
And it is encouraging to be on Sparks.
You know the struggle. And we help each other.
People that see me often say they donīt notice anything or I like you round or keep away from the peanut butter..
So it is my struggle and mine alone with a little help and big help from Spark.
Yesterday a lady I haven t seen for a long time said I looked good and how I did it.
Well it is a long story always trying new ways when the first is too boring and always looking the other way from snack bars and having defence food and water with me and trying putting exercise in the day. Hopefully every day.
About 15 kg is my goal. So almost everyday I give myself massage with creme so my flesh wont hang. It is nice with a positive attention to my body and maybe also stress relieving.
This is the halfway. And maybe I will not reach my final goal. Then comes plan B: Not going up again put maintaining some better eating and exercise habits. emoticon

Moving

In this month I have to use a lot of time sorting my things and packing and getting the last things done in my old place.
So my exercise will mostly be struggling with that.
Iīll try getting some bicycle tours to the stores and if Iīm fantastic get on the rollerblades. emoticon

    All that moving can be stressful so cut out a few minutes each day to gather your thought while taking a walk, a run or a bike ride, it will help you clear your mind and stay on track for packing! Good luck with the move.
