Doc visit

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

So recently I went to the doctor and had told him about a rash that was on my backside....it turned out it that I am sensitive to yeast and my doctor told me to cut out carbs completely...he said good carbs such as sweet potatoes and anything like that I can eat but no breads or the like...no pasta no rice nothing like that....before that though the nurse weighed me *hangs head down* I weighed in at 400lbs...400lbs you've got to be kidding me?! so looks like it's just meat, veggies, fruits for now....if ya have any suggestions for me please comment

eating more when I'm sick

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I have a serious question for y'all and this may vary from person to person but when I'm sick or not feeling very well I tend to eat a lot more....I know that others tend to eat a lot less when they're not feeling good or are sick but I do eat more....so the question is this: Why do I eat more when I am sick/not feeling well? and less when I'm well and happy?

    For comfort?

    Me too, the only time I don't is when I have the stomach flu, but other than that my husband is amazed at how much I eat when I am sick. Someone once told me it is because we feel like we can eat more because we are sick and food comforts us.

I don't know how true that is, but it may be the case. We all need comfort when we are sick.

Forgetting how exercise felt like

Thursday, January 17, 2013

I forgot how it feels to exercise because I have been lazy for a bit and today I walked up to the market to buy some stuff for dinner upon arriving back I said to my mother "damn I forgot how it feels to exercise" because the back of my legs felt like they were on fire. my mom says "take one of my muscle relaxers" in which I responded " no mom I need to feel this, remember no pain no gain" and she said "yeah". the thing is I only walked .8 miles not that far.

    I like the feel exercise brings to my muscles. BTW, good job at refusing the muscle relaxer. Just remember to stretch a bit. That will help.

    Spark can help but the emotional end of things is going to have to come from you. There is a reason that you are carrying around this weight. Maybe you do over eat but most big people I know actually eat less than every skinny person I'm close to. Probably because of the guilt and fat girl rules. Can't be the first one to the buffet. Can't be the last one to leave the table. Blah blah blah. Stupid guilt trips we lay on ourselves because inside we feel like we deserve to be punished for being this way.

I used to blame my body. Tell myself if I'd gotten better genetics than I would be as thin as my sister. Believing that right down to the atoms that made me up that I was inferior. I don't know if that's you but considering your plea for confidence I'm going to guess that it's not very far off.

You don't know me. We've never met. (Hi by the way!) However, you have to believe that a lot of us have been in your shoes, are still in your shoes, and more than any diet or exercise routine, you need to forgive yourself for not being everything you thought you could be. That's the past. You're never going to be in high school again. You're never going to be able to do it over. The only thing you can do is thank your body for getting you this far, learning to love it, appreciate it, nourish it, and insure that 5 or 10 years down the road you don't look back at this moment and wish that you'd made some different choices. Baby step it if you have to.

Pick a bad habit. Eating in the middle of the night. Not getting enough water. Drinking too much soda. If a whole routine isn't working then focus on just one thing and change that. Keep at it for a month. Keep at it until you aren't even hungry after 8 or crave water instead of soda when you are thirsty. Then when you think you have that one down, pick another one. Maybe it's waking up 30 minutes early so you can fit a small workout in before you have to get ready for work. Eventually, you'll have so many good habits going on that your body will have no choice but change because you're changing. We should never love our bodies less than some guys love their cars.
