Back again to Spark people

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

To day I walked a 45 minute tour
And for the first time after a long pause put exercise in Spark People.
It is a storm to day so I ran down to the sea to take some photos
And just look at the waves.
I also got some photos of some flowers and an old farm
And picked some black berries.
When I came back I saw a sentence by Søren Kierkegaard, the famous Danish philosopher:
Never lose the happiness of walking.
Walking can nurture big thoughts
and take away even the worst sorrows
In Danish:
"Tab for Alt i Livet ikke Lysten til at gå.
Jeg går mig hver Dag det daglige Velbefindende
til og går fra enhver Sygdom;
Jeg har gået mine bedste Tanker til,
og jeg kjender ingen Tanke så Tung, at
man jo ikke kan gå fra den."
Søren Kierkegaard (1847)

My new home

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

The house
When I bicycle to the stores - I bicycle along the seaside..
I am very happy that I moved to this place.
I see possibilities in life
Where my former home was filled with barriers
I have been away from Spark People a long time as it took incredibly
long time to get entry to the internet
My weight is about the same but I am lighter anyway as I am so happy I have moved.
Some of my good friends have already been here to visit me although it took almost 3 hours with public transportation..
People I have met around here are friendly I have joined a rowing club
And soon I will start teaching ceramics
There is 2 apple trees so I have bought a fruit and vegetable presser so I will have completely fresh juice



Now I´ve moved

And I´m happy
But witout internet untill august 18th


Slim and slender - How

Saturday, June 26, 2010

How do slender people do?

All males in my family and 2 of my sisterinlaws and my love are slim and slender


eat slowly
Are physical active
are fussy about food - it shall taste good or be of good quality - This differs
Focus on other things than food

What have you noticed - What is good for you?


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 don´t 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 - don´t ask me why - Don´t ask me why - Don´t 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.

- Joan
