30 things about my weight loss

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I am horrible about blogging but I saw this set of questions and love it. I thought I would take a bit and answer them here so as I progress I can look back at the answers.

1 - stats? - already in spark tracker
2 - How tall are you and do you like your height? 5'6" yes I like it except when I need something out of the top cupboard.
3 - A picture of thinspiration - What features do you like about this person? healthy look of the person
4 - What is your greatest fear about weight loss? Putting it back on.
5 - Why do you really want to lose weight? I want to live long enough to meet my future grandchildren and be healthy enough to play with them and travel with my husband.
6 - Do you binge? yes I am a stress binger - I am trying hard to change that.
7 - Does your family know you are trying to lose weight? My husband does - I tell my small daughters I am working on being healthier.
8 - Workout routine? I don't have one yet except try to be more active each day.
9 - Did people ever make comments about your weight in a negative weight? Of course.
10 - What is the hardest thing you gave up? Diet pepsi - I am still struggling without I do ok for awhile then go back to it.
11 - Your favorite thinspo blog? I read lots on sparkpeople and look at skinny taste everyday.
12 - What do you normally eat? I don't like to get into a routine of eating the same thing I get bored with that then will end up eating something I shouldn't.
13 - Are you losing in a healthy way? Yes this time I am.
14 - What is your ultimate weight goal and when do you expect to reach it? 150 I reach it when I do - it is too far away still so I am looking at the smaller goals first.
15 - Are you a vegan or a vegetarian? no but I find myself eating more meatless meals.
16 - When did you first decide to lose weight? I have been losing weight my whole life but never keep it off - I got serious about it in September 2012

21 - What are your clothing sizes? I started at 24 and am at 18 now.
22 - what is the lowest weight you remember? as an adult 190
23 - did the media play a role in you wanting to lose weight? no
24 - How do you feel? Great I feel better and still motivated
25 - Have you ever purged? NO
26 - What excites you about reaching your goal weight? Better health and being able to keep up with my family
27 - How do you deal with being around food? I make sure I have healthy options
28 - Do you want a gap between your legs? Of course no one I know likes having their thighs rub together
29 - Definition of beauty? Beauty is an internal thing - it does not come from a persons looks
30 - 10 facts about you - I am changing the way my family eats. I can do more physically. I am a better mom and wife because of my change. I love being outside. I love experimenting when cooking. I am ever changing. I love music. I love the beach. I am going to do this. I am never going back to the way I used to be.

14 years is too long

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

14 years ago today we lost my dad. He did at the age of 49 - leaving us - his children - fatherless at the ages of 24, 18, and 10. I always stress eat around this time of year - and last night was no exception, but at least it was only a short period of time - where before I would have drowned my sorrows with food for a week. I am sure he would prefer that next year I celebrate his life and passing with healthy food and a healthy life - LOVE YOU DADDY!!!!

    I'm sorry for your loss. I tend to get very emotional around Mother's Day since my mom left while I was younger. I would emo eat and then Bach myself for it, and continue the awful cycle. This year I am making sure that I keep my emotions in front of me so that if I slip (and its ok if I do), it is not a horrendously days long type of thing like in the past.

I'm proud of you for noticing the slip, but the stopping it from getting an worse. That is HUGE! I am proud of you.

Your dad is proud of you NOW. I just know it.
And next year will be even better.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I know how you feel, it seems like no matter how much time has passed, things will never be the same. Everybody deals with it in their own way, just remember there are so many great things in life and so many things to be thankful for, enjoy them! emoticon

I have crossed that line

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

I have officialy lost just over half the weight I set out to lose - It is hard to believe!!! And how did I celebrate? By deciding I could put in a large flower bed ( it is WAY more work than I thought).

Stuck in the Middle (well near the middle anyway)

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I am once again stuck - this time though it is 1 1/2 pounds away from the halfway point. I have tried eating a few more calories - a few less calories - doing less - doing more. Maybe it's my bodys way of telling me it needs a bit to adjust to the way things are now!!

I have been sparking through a mobile app but not going on through the pc - I have continued to lose, but have missed the social part of the site - wish they would add that to the app - for now though I will have to log in and give some sparks to my friends!
