Thursday, June 04, 2009



I JUST LOVE THIS PIC OF THIS YOUNG MAN. THE INTENSITY.... HE IS NOT GIVING UP AND I AM NOT EITHER.

TO MY SHOCK MY EXERCISING HAD DROPPED OFF AND THAT IS ONE THING THAT I COULD ALWAYS DO. WELL IT IS TIME TO GET BUSY. I AM GONNA START OUT SLOW AND BUILD FROM THERE. STRENGTHENING EXERCISES NEXT WEEK START WITH 6 AND GO FROM THERE. emoticon emoticon.

I HAVE STARTED BACK POSTING WHAT I ATE. emoticonWWWHHHEEEWWWW SHOOT! DO I HEAR YOUR MR. EE?? LOOK YOU WILL NOT WIN. I MAY HAVE STUMBLED A COUPLE TIMES BUT I AM NOT GOING TO GIVE UP. YOU ARE A LAIR!! GET BACK!!! FOR TODAY I ATE emoticon emoticon.

I NEED TO GO SHOPPING FOR MORE VEGGIES AND FRUITS SO I WILL CONTINUE TO EAT MORE OF THEM. emoticon emoticonEE DID I TELL YOU TO GET BACK emoticon. I KNOW I CAN DO IT WITH THE HELP OF MY FAITH.

NOW I HAVE SAID MANY TIMES THAT I WOULD NEVER BUY ANOTHER BOOK FOR LIFE CHANGING BOOK (I WILL NOT SAY DIET BOOK.) BUT EE IS PERSISTENT SO AM I! SO I AM EXCITED ABOUT A BOOK I HAVE COME ACROSS..IT WORKS LIKE BECK 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS. YES IT HAS A LOT OF INFO ABOUT MR EE. HE HAS GOT TO GO. THE LORD SAID A RIGHTEOUS MAN FALLS 7 TIMES AND THE LORD WILL PICK HIM UP. WELL I AM GETTING BACK UP AGAIN IN FAITH. THERE IS NO SHAME IN GETTING BACK AGAIN. I WANT TO REACH MY WEIGHT GOAL BY NEXT YEAR. SO I WANT TO DO THIS, I HAVE TO DO THIS AND I WILL DO THIS WITH THE GUIDE OF THE LORDS HELP AND FRIENDS. emoticon

    I know exactly what you are saying. This morning as I was coming into work, I said to myself, "The only person that henders your progress is ME!" I came to that conclusion after saying I wanted to stop & get me some Red Vines from the Target close to my job cause they are so soft. Now eating the entire box 560 calories, no fat but totally all carbs! So where does all the sugar go? My midsection of course. Please let us know how you like the book?!

Blessings to us all on this journey!

    ...skids back in with 1 more nod & agreement.

in the past when u said u wouldn't buy 1 more, i say that about "low calorie diets" ~ i won't just try more diets... i need to find the skills & tools and foods and ways to eat and exercise that do help me. so i can create a lifestyle approach that works for me personally. nourish me physically and emotionally both...

it's ok to consider any & all ideas. if they are crazy making for me... well, i don't have to do them, right?

right!

woot!

Have fun exploring more ideas :)

    lol, u tell Mr EE!!! Woot!!!

i struggle with his cousin Mr BingeBoy and neither are welcome @ my house any more!!!

emoticoni think everyone's books & plans are ideas we can ponder & consider. It's important to distinguish if it is good for us or not. keep the good, skip the rest!

for example, Beck said do these things as rules... well that made me wanna do the opposite! lol ~ yeah, i have a very stubborn inner 2 yr old child that pitches royal hissy fits...

but if i look past the way she said things and looked at her idea... i found a lot of good ideas that really work well for me, like the Give Yourself Credit skill, 1 of my all time favorite ideas ever!

emoticon emoticon emoticoni can see your Spark rising & shining strong today, my friend :)

    Oh, how I love that picture!

Tonight on NBC is Farrah Faucet's two hour documentary on her fight with Cancer. If you know someone this would benefit watching, tell them not to miss it. She is now terminally ill, but has fought it for three years. Thank you for your support of my Nathan's Cancer battle. He went this morning for his last treatment for this Round. Then in a couple of weeks he will have the fourth and final week. emoticon emoticon

STREAKS CHANGED UP!!

Thursday, May 14, 2009

emoticon

I am a known night owl. But since starting metformin and daily duties I have been lots more tired. I know this is more stress on my body and I need to start taking better care of me. After all if I don't who will?? I know God will but faith without works is dead. I have noticed that I have more energy since going to sleep by 11:00. So I will try and keep it up.

emoticon

Now I did not start out eating while watching tv until I got married and joined hd eating while watching tv. Not a good mix. So I have decided to eat at least 2 meals at the table. Wish me luck LOL!!!

emoticon

Not eating over 2000 calories at any given time. This will be a challenge to me since I have Mr. EE on my back sometimes. He pretty much stays on his job. Sometimes my mega can yell him away. But I never forget to use my faith in Christ.

This just to remind myself of the changes I needed to stay fresh. Now I have to find some new exercise routines that fit my needs. May ask dr. since I am under his care.

    All of us eat in front of the TV!! I was raised to eat at the table, but then I got married and DH was use to eating in front of the TV. That is so bad for our family but I can't change him! And I feel bad telling DS that he can't eat in front of the TV when his dad does. But at least DS is active and burns lots of calories!!

Good luck on your goals!! You are strong and your faith is too! I know that you will be successful.

    My family is bad about eating all over the house and not at the table. I need to get better about that myself. Great job on getting more rest - hopefully after school is out I can get some extra rest in.

did you know? when we are too tired the body actually pumps hormones into us that make us hungry so we will eat & give it extra energy!

WHAT DO I HOPE TO LEARN FROM THIS SITE??

Friday, May 08, 2009



Well you never stop learning in life here at sp or in life in general. Each day is a lesson.

As an emotional eater...those who struggle with this beast can relate. Sometimes days are easier than others.

I am learning each day to use techniques that work for me and which ones does not work. chewing gum, distances my self from the thing that is screaming my name. Exercise etc.

Consistency, retooling, learning how to use portion control, exercise have never been a problem for me. I might not run as fast as others but I do go at my own pace and that is what counts. I have learned not to compare myself as for as weight, exercise type or pace. This journey is a individual one and I am sharing it with sp friends.

One of the things that I learned to do is using my sp megaphone when I hear those yucky voices telling me to over eat. emoticonGET LOST YOU YUCKY VOICES!!! NOW!!! Of course my faith has carried me thur the EXTREMELY CHALLENGING DAYS! I press on each day, week and if so year. Sometimes I am like this kitty in the pic hanging on for dear life but I am hanging tough baby!

    In "Shrink Yourself" by ROGER GOULD, M.D., he calls that YUCKY voice "Harriet" and says to tell her to SHUT UP. I call my voice "Spondulex" as when I was a child, my mother said a SPONDULEX as a brat kid like Dennis the Menace. (Now like Bart Simpson). BUT, I tell her to shut up, since she is such a liar, telling me "Oh, you can eat that and no one will know....." Then she criticizes and belittles me afterwards, so I don't want to listen to her, either.

    I am so glad that you made the comment about going at your own pace. I sometimes think to myself, "If I could only exercise as much as so and so, then I would be losing more." I need to remember that if I'm exercising at my potential, which I haven't been lately, then I'm doing what I should be doing!! Thanks for the reminder.

I think I'll use your emoticon idea when I'm stressed and start to binge eat!! You know I never really thought about that being emotional eating, but that is exactly what it is!! Thanks for waking me up to me own disadvantages.

    Going at your own pace is the key to success. I need to remember to use my emoticon as well when that voice starts to tell me to do the things I know will not help me achieve my goal.

    I like that determination! Yeah, going at your own pace is the only thing that works long-term, because then it's something you can maintain for life!

Keep it up!

SOMEONE WHO INSPIRES ME ON THIS TEAM

Wednesday, May 06, 2009




There is no one person that does that cause we all inspire each. When I want to scream someone comes and gives me a word of encouragement from the team. If I need prayers some comes and prays with me. If I need a loving push someone comes and pushes. We are all inspiring that is why are all here.

    I like your prayer for healing on your page - and I pray God heals you. Yesterday in church we were singing and one song said I surrender my pain to You - and I thought of you and had a little conversation with Him about you!

I hope you see and feel your body getting better daily!
