I'm Jealous and Proud at the Same Time

Monday, April 30, 2012

My boyfriend has decided to lose weight. Since I found him attractive extra pounds and all, this decision was about him wanting to feel better about himself when he looked in the mirror. I totally support him and his efforts. (This is the good girlfriend talking.)

My boyfriend has decided to lose weight. His weightloss efforts have resulted in a 10:1 ratio of pounds lost. For every one pound I lose, he loses 10 lbs! I'm as jealous as Tonya Harding when she plotted Nancy Kerrigan's ice skating demise. I don't wish him any ill will, but by golly I wish the ratio was a little closer. (This is the bad girlfriend talking.)

May the best girlfriend win!

AHA! That's What They Meant!

Monday, March 12, 2012

Guess what I just really figured out? Food's main purpose is to fuel my body. That's it. Nothing else.

If I use food as entertainment, I'm in trouble.
If I use food as a close friend, I'm in trouble.
If I use food as an anti-depressant, I'm in big trouble.
If I use food as anything other than fuel for my body, I'm in trouble.

Each additional pound I have on my body is the result of using food for something other than fuel for my body. Food has not been a great friend, confidant, or anything else.

Annual Physical Dread

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

I didn't quite stick to my plan in 2011. Okay, okay, I completely jumped off the bandwagon. Now it is time to face the music. In two weeks, I will have the dreaded physical. The moment where the doctor looks at me and states that I am obese (as if I didn't notice). She will tell me that obesity is not good for my health (as if I haven't noticed the pain involved in carrying an extra 100 lbs). She will ask me to try to loose the weight (as if I am enjoying the extra arrangements required to survive being plus-sized in a skinny worshiping world).

Oh, how I wish I had sticked to the plan from last year!!! Hopefully, I have lost at least a few pounds. So I can at least tell her that I have not had a net weight gain. Although between us, I lost 30 lbs last year and gained 25.

Things will be different this year. I have a much more realistic plan and the SP family. But oh the joy I will experience in two weeks...oh the joy.

    I understand how you feel. I think it would be great just to be very honest with your doc and explain that you have a very real plan, a great support mechanism in SparkPeople, and that while you did regain some weight in 2011, you did lose and will do it again. He/she may be able to give you more encouragement than scolding with that type of conversation. Good luck with your appointment and congrats with your new commitment.

Someone Like You

Monday, November 28, 2011

I've recently become a fan of Adele (for those of you non-music aficionados, she is a female singer from London). Last weekend, I listened to her song, Someone Like You, that speaks of a lost love. While I definitely thought of a past crush, I sometimes feel like the younger version of my body is a lost love that has moved on with life without me.

"You know how time flies, only yesterday was the time of our lives." [Adele]

I remember that girl, trim and strong. I definitely wonder if I will see her again.

I will keep fighting to lose this weight that is making the completion of some other dreams a little harder.

Maybe somewhere along the journey, "I'll find someone like you."


Missed Ya'll!

Thursday, October 20, 2011

In an effort to shake things up a bit, I went back to a previous weightloss program that garnered me great success. This old plan had just been revamped and I was nosey. After almost two months on the system, I realize that I miss SparkPeople. I miss the simplicity of SparkPeople and the ease of the mobile app.

Don't get me wrong, I still have great fondness for the other program. I have love for it, but I miss ya'll. I am now using SP food tracking to participate in the other program until my subscription runs out.

My goal is to loose 17 pounds in 10 weeks (12:01 am on January 1, 2012).

I'm baaaa-aaccckkk!
