I read the book 100 days of weight loss by Linda Spangle a few years ago, read it but didn't do the exercises or work. Well I joined the team while back here on spark and again did nothing. Linda Spangle the author is doing her 100 days so a lot of us are starting with her.
So I got myself a nice purple notebook, chose which food plan I wanted to do, ( dr recommended Health First by Steve Hirsch) so will do that. It is common sense but less food than I am used to. LOL HA of course it is silly!!!
Day 1 entails believing you will change your behaviours. So I used to do............. now I do.......... Here is my list.
I used to fear failure but now I am different. I will persevere and try harder and believe I am worth it.
I used to worry about being flabbier if I lost weight, but now I am different. I will work out with weights to my best ability and keep my exercise going and work at being toned.
I used to think that this is too hard, why bother, but now I am different. I know that it is hard, what in my life hasn't been at some time. So now I will embrace that I am strong and able and will do this for my health and well being. I NEED to do this.
I used to want junk and sweets constantly but now I am different. I will reach for fruit but only up to 4 servs a day, and drink my water. I will choose good healthy foods knowing that not only will it help me lose weight, but will make my body stronger inside and out and help protect from illness.
I used to eat my emotions, happy, sad, mad, glad no matter I would eat, But now I am different. I have many things I can do, journal, art journal, sew, quilt, x sttich when hands let me, scrapbook, walk, read. call a friend, talk to a friend on here... and thankfully talk to hubby. I have many options I don't need to turn to food. Besides food doesn't help at all.
My reasons are on the team page and my fingers hurt so not re doing them! LOL

Well started out with Allie and I walking, brought her home, and I headed out again. Have a spot to get to and then turned and came back. A few more walks with her, short ones around the block. Read, napped, and then we went out for a bit. Home and walked her, then went out again alone. Same area, same length. Now am done for the night. I iced my knee and feel okay for me. I say okay but all that know it is the regular pain, just not extra. Oh well I will be fine. I will survive and I WILL LOSE this wt.
So tomorrow Linda Spangle starts her day 1 of her book, and I am starting then too. There are a few more new ones on the team also. I have had her book for few years, read it but never did the work. That changes tomorrow. Be good to have a team and the author doing it, sure will be harder to just give up! lol
Okay going to go and get ready for tomorrow. HOping the driveway guy shows up, supposed to be last Friday and a few days before that, but giving him benefit for Friday as was pouring rain..... man..... well at least the roof is done, and hubby is sure he can fix the emerg. brake of car. So onward to a good nights sleep and tomorrow.

Just watched an episode of Extreme wt. loss with Chris Powell. It was the girl Sara who was only 4'5 and 245 lbs. Not once on that show did she say I can't, I won't etc. she did say at the beginning she didn't deserve it but once she got past all the previous bullying and the most abusive sister ever ( verbally) she never gave Chris any flack about not doing or not able. She ran a full marathon!!! her short little legs did it.
Every time I watch this show I get motivated, more than biggest loser cos he seems more real and more intuned to the people. and once again I think yes I have a bad back, yes I have to take care, but I CAN do this. SO PEOPLE I WILL DO THIS!!!!
Off to get ready for bed. We didn't realize that 60 mins had Robin Williams life on or we would have pvrd it. Oh well. Can't watch everything.
Night all, off to get my strength sleep cos I gotta walk tomorrow. LOL I did my upper body today, and my walking. I have to figure what more I can do. I sure hope the program at the pool even though it is restorative and only one hr one day it is also better than nothing and is $2 so I can afford to go!!! She said to call end of month as she had to find a new instructor, I sure hope some physio therapist steps up to the plate!!! OH man I have to buy a new bathing suit! Sure mine was worn too thin,
NIght all. HUGS
and my favorite word ever:

But hey it isn't a cold rain and I only have to walk Allie, so will put my already wet, still drying clothes on and go in a bit. She doesn't mind. lol She gets extra lovin cos we have to dry her off. What a girl. Seems good today.
Well thankful so thankful that the company finally came through and did our roof for us. Was two guys that were done one job and come at 8:45 at night, nearly dark! But when I went out this morning, you cant see where it was fixed so that is great!! I guess will give them a thumbs up after all. Now the guy with the driveway was to come but it is pouring so give him one more chance. Feels so good to know one thing is done and off that list and we got it for the cheaper price since was just an after another job. Was only 4 shingles off when he got up there.
Been feeling a sense of urgency with this wt loss and healthy biz which hasn't been there before, Not sure why but hope it will stay, not bother me but stay. I have eaten well, did my exercises and was able to go up to 10 lb wts. with all but one, so my elbow is doing better as is my shoulder.
I got a really nice panel of material that I want to make a wall hanging with. Well 3 as it has 2 sides and a middle. Going to cut the middle and make one then do the other two. I don't have any batting right now so will wait till next pay to get batting, only cheap thin but do want something and then put a back on it. So what I like, and said to dd I am getting that one, not the colours for where I wanted it but can change walls. lol
Guess better go, have lunch and get a bit more done. Lazy day weather wise but don't feel lazy. that is good, however a nap later may be nice! lol
HUGS I don't mind a day of rain in summer...
