Going over

Saturday, May 12, 2012

Instead of not writing down when I go over or feeling depressed, I am looking at my food intake to see where the trouble is. Today, I found it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the stir fry. The other day it was whole wheat tea biscuits with raisins. Both of those foods are OK. But not in the quantity I had them.
Trudging along

Lost 10 pounds, what a difference

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

On my trip to China and getting a cold after led to me losing 10 pounds. What a difference!
My sugar is three points lower, basically normal in the morning. Going up stairs is easier (All that stair climbing China also)
But I still feel my weight dragging me down. So working hard on recording my food and exercise on Sparkpeople. Don't want to gain this weight back!
Actually chose a half bagel rather than a full one this morning at a breakfast meeting!
Go me.

I'm back!

Now almost vegan due to milk and egg sensitivies. But still not losing weight. Got to get back on the exercise trail, winter stops the walking. Have to work on portion sizes. Off we go again.


Fat Running

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Further to my post. I was driving to church with my daughter this morning and I saw a fat woman jogging very slowly down the path beside the road. I spontaneously cried out, "You go girl!" Then realized the car window was open.
Did she hear me?Maybe not. Did she think I was someone mocking her? I hope not.
If I see her again, I really will make sure she hears me!!!


Shush! I'm Running

Sunday, August 14, 2011

My daughter is a runner. She's going in a half marathon in the fall. It has helped her so much, not only physically but as a non-medication solution for depression. She had a nasty breakup with her fiance (the rat) and I have to say she is doing well, reacting as a normal person would. I give credit to the running.

She would love me to run, but I am obese. I have been walking however, a half hour, a mile in 30 minutes with the dog. I've been doing that for quite sometime.
Yesterday morning, I ran. A slow jog for one to two minutes. It wasn't as bad as when I tried to before. Too puffed to make my little goal of partway down the path. But today I did it! My two minutes to the bend in the path! I pretended like I had gone through the ribbon to win a race. The dog looked at me funny. LOL.
But it's a secret. I am deathly afraid the runners who use the path will catch this fat old lady starting to run.
But I have a goal. A one kilometre run (OK jog, prob. walk) in September. Won't my daughter be surprised!

    Woot Woot!!!!! I am so proud of you and your DD. You know, life throws us total curve balls (like a ratty fiance!) but honestly, she's learning how to handle these huge disappointments and she clearly is learning how to handle these situations in a healthy manner.

Depression is indeed much more manageable with activity, so very proud of her for sticking to it! My son also has problems with depression and I have talked him into getting physical activity in the morning before his day starts so he gets the benefit of the exercise AND sunlight. It is helping.

As for me, I have been walking for years now and really got "serious" about doing it right when I joined SP in Feb. 2010. You won't be diong killer miles to begin with, but you're doing it the exact right way . . . building yourself up to your goal. GOOD FOR YOU! I think your daughter will be VERY happily surprised. You go!!
