I'm a little scared...

Friday, September 12, 2008

I have had a pretty good summer overall, did a lot of fun things-the beach, etc., lost around 15 or so pounds, so that's good, but I had to write down something that happened to me Wednesday. I chose to overeat like I used to earlier in the week-Mon., Tues., Wed.-using the excuse-and I fully understand that's all it was-that my sister was away on vacation so I'm home alone, I'll eat like I'm on vacation. Well, I found that I felt it went against my now usual pattern of eating sensibly during the week, so maybe it was a guilty conscience but I also became violently ill Wed. nite, and up came my food I had stuffed into myself earlier in the day. And while it certainly could've been food poisoning, I have been feeling "psychically" off for a few weeks now, I truly feel in my gut it was my body rejecting the hurt I'd caused it. Which has scared me to think that my mind is not totally in control, and if I stray and don't take care of it the way it's now used to me taking care of it, my body will become angry and let me know it's feelings. I wonder if this has ever happened to anyone else? To that, though, I, as many of us do, have a hard time staying within my calorie range during the weekends, so I spent some time on it and I've devised a new food plan that is within my calorie range for the weekend-Fri. nite, Sat. and Sun. Wish me luck, and I'll keep you posted on the other thing-I have my first Reiki session with my friend Lynn who does my massages-I'm really looking forward to it.

    I read once that the intestine reacts to food in a way that mimics reactions in the your digestive system really was telling you something! Now that you know how your healthier body reacts to these foods, you can act accordingly. Consider it a wake-up call, and don't worry too much about it.

Have a great weekend!

    I hope you Reiki session is wonderful! About you body getting mad...i have a story for you that happened to me during a juice fast last year.

I had just finished my week long juice fast and was back to solid food, though only raw foods. I was invited by my fiancÚ's family to dinner. No problem i thought, i'll have cooked veggies or something. However, they took us to KFC. I love KFC, though i really shouldn't. It was also buffet day. I ate a chicken breast, mashed potatoes w/gravy, and a whole slew of other things. It was mighty tasty for all of about 20 min. Then my body revolted and emptied itself on the ride home along the side of the road.

I can eat it now, but i really have to be careful of portions. A little is ok, but if i eat too much, i'll get sick. I sill can't eat fast food burgers or tacos. Just chicken. You body will always let you know what's up, all you have to do is listen. However, its not mad at you, it just wants you both to happy together.

Congrats on the weight loss too! Good luck on your journey!

Weight Loss Goals

Wednesday, May 07, 2008

So, I like the idea of setting specific dates to lose a certain amount of weight-I do this with a SP buddy of mine and it's kinda fun-even if I don't quite get there by our pre-arranged date, I do eventually get there, I don't get upset, I just keep doin' what I'm doin' and continue to lose weight-1 pound at a time. So my first self-imposed goal was to get to 250 by my birthday, and I missed it by one lousy, stinkin' pound! But I did reach it the week after-so I sorta made it-LOL! So my next goal is 235-which was my highest a few years ago-by, let's call it July 4th. Then 200, then 191-which I weighed in my twenties-I'm 40 now!, and downward from there! I know I've done good work, but, honestly, I couldn't have done it without you, SP! emoticon


My new pants finally fit!

Friday, May 02, 2008

Well, I've officially broken 250-not goin' back there again-I remember my first blog entry I lost one pound-now I'm up to 19 and it feels so good-even tho' I know I have a long way yet to go I'm on my way-so far, so good, but honestly, not without a few (thankfully minor) bumps in the road.

Anyway, last month I bought two new pairs of pants-and not the knit, stretchy fabric either-I bought them in a size down from what I was when I started losing weight-and today for the first time I am comfortable wearing one of those new pairs-they slid right over my hips and fit perfectly! Both pairs were loose when I got them but I had faith that someday soon they would fit-and one pair does-the other pair are jeans-haven't tried those on lately-I might have to loose a little more to get into those but now I know I can do it-I'll keep you posted.

  Congratulations! It does feel good, doesn't it? Keep up the good work and before you know it, you'll be buying even smaller sizes.

Slowly, but progress nonetheless...

The past couple of weeks have been kinda stressful. I lost 2 friends, one died of brain cancer, the other, my elderly hamster, Danny. Danny and Dee were hard to lose, as we all know losing someone we care about is never easy, but I still did manage to stay on track (almost, but not quite) every day. I even went to a buffet and ate responsibly! I have to say, though, SP has some wonderfully educational and motivational articles on messing up-I guess it is common. I'm really working hard on no longer beating myself up, or deciding to blow the whole day because I overate at one meal, and work on moving forward, like taking an extra walk, or remembering I've come a ways now, JUST MOVE FORWARD. I've got some of my fave articles in "My favorites", feel free to check them out. On the upside, my jeans and spring jacket-which I've just put on for the first time in months, ARE LOOSE! Not by a ton, but it's noticeable to me; and I think the best part is, a couple of people have noticed my weight loss and commented on it-which is probably the best motivator in the world. I also notice, and maybe this is weird, but it's easier to get around-walking, exercising, climbing the stairs. Ok, that's it for now, I'll introduce my new little hamster friend I'm picking up tonite, probably here but most definitely on the Pet Lover's Group. Keep strong everyone-I'm rooting for us all!
