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 did it!! Early!! Today's official weigh-in-drum roll, please-234!! I know that's still waaaay too much for me to weigh but I surpassed my self-imposed goal of 235 by July 4!! Next up, breaking 200 by, let's call it by Dec. 31st! Ok-I'll keep you posted.

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!

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.
THANK YOU SPARK PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!

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!
