Will it last?

Friday, December 04, 2009

I stepped on my scale today just to see what it would say. I was doing this daily but decided to go a few days with out. So this time I was surprised when the numbers 332.5 came on, It was nice surprise and just to be sure I checked it again. Now I am just hoping it stays the same for weighin on Monday.

To my Sparkfamily, have wonderful blessed weekend emoticon

    Isn't it nice to get those little surprises? I got the same surprise when I got on the scale this morning. I too had not been checking my weight because I've not been eating all that healthy...not especially eating real bad but I could have been doing better. anyways...I decided to get on the scale this morning and was surprised to see a 5# loss. it really made me feel good & I did a little happy dance. LOL. I now only have 5 pounds to go to be at the weight I was at 2-3 wks ago.

I know we can both do it. We just need to set our minds to it.

change of plans

Monday, November 30, 2009

My goal for thanksgiving was to spend more time with my extended family and yet it was only partially achieved. We had unexpected guests, which was an exciting event and were happy to have them. I was able to go back and forth between our guests and my family as the dinner was right next door to our house. So yes I felt blessed

BUDDY_LOVE 12/5/2009 12:42PM wasn't from lack of trying that you couldn't spend as much time with your family. Unexpected guests around the holidays are always nice (well...usually, LOL). We've recently had to cancel several holiday shopping trips because stepkids showed up unexpectedly (they almost always call before coming over)..but they were nice surprises because they came over to decorate the yard for Christmas & put lights on the house! So we had to cancel our shopping trips on both days & today I will be heading out to do that in about an hour.

I'm so glad you were able to spend time with both parties. I would have been hard pressed to pick just one!

I am ready for change and have chosen that day to be socialable. Since my son journeyed to Heaven I have been an almost recluse among family, and now that I have a little courage and curiosity I want to know how the rest of my family is doing. I plan on staying and enjoying the company of family and friends.

So to my Sparkfamily, have a blessed Thanksgiving Day

    It is hard to be around others when we are so sad. I fight anxiety & panic issues though so sometimes going somewhere for me is just out of the picture. But since I've been making a concerted effort to get out more (I even joined a crochet group 1.5 yrs ago!), it has helped with my self esteem & given me the strength to change other things in my life (like my eating habits!). I also bought a membership to our local zoo & a 'hands-on' museum. I bought these 2 memberships specificially because they are geared towards children (I have 6 grandkids). It forces me to get out of the house & do something because i don't want to disappoint my grandkids. I also bought a gym membership thinking it would force me to get out of the house more & get healthier in the process. Let's just was a waste of $900. I just couldn't bring myself to go. Everytime I would head out of the house to heart would start pounding, I'd get light headed & dizzy & feel like i was going to pass out. and instead of forcing the issue & making myself work through it, I just gave in & gave up. With the other 2 memberships I can't do that because I would never disappoint my grand kids for love, money or my disabilities. I make myself work through my issues & deal with it on the spot.'re did the right thing. How did it turn out? Just think...if you made it through this ok, with your mental faculties can make it through anything!

    I'm so proud of you JoeAnne, Riley's Mom, for taking this step. I'm not that far along, I'll go most likely to be with family but i will drink and pretty much stay away from everyone. I'll be too upset to eat so I don't have to worry about going over on calories. You are an inspiration and I hope you have a blessed holiday.

Slowly but surely

Monday, November 16, 2009

I've been holding at the same weight now for 4 weeks, and for now it's an okay thing. I know I really need to be consistant with the exercise to make things change, not just for weight but for my diabetes (it's been too high).
I did catch up on most of my Bible study, but that also needs to be consistant. I used to be an early riser, but now it seems I can't/don't want to get up, anyway who would want to leave their nice warm bed if they didn't have too? Ok I'm just lazy, but I'm not giving up on myself, besides this is the time of year when the sadness/depression overcomes me. I can fill it's chill already in the late afternoons when I'm home alone.
So please keep me in prayer. Thanks sparkfamily emoticon

    I was thinking about that myself. I mean staying at around the same weight for longer than I would like. I came to the same conclusion that I needed to be more consistant with my exercise. You are not alone! So when you come home in the late afternoon and feel SAD try to think of your blessings and Spark friends. I will keep you in my prayers.

    Holding your weight is a good thing, congrats. I have been there and I just want to tell you the tortoise wins the race every time, we don't need to go fast, we each have our own pace.

I am reading "Lose it for Life" and I have to tell you my inner being is much stronger. We have to surrender it all over to God, we can't do it ourselves. Funny I could apply that to all areas of my life but never thought about that with food......

keep putting one foot in front of the other and you will win!

    You are in my prayers JoeAnne, Rileys Mom. Have you considered getting a light for SAD (seasonal affectice disorder - depression) I've heard wonderful things about them and my mom got mine at big lots for $20 you sit in front of it for 30 minutes while doing your hair or make-up or reading a book.

I'm glad you are almost caught up on your Bible studies, hopefully that brings you some comfort. I can't wait to get back to church now that lake season has ended but this agoraphobia is kicking my butt.

Keep sparking and you will break this plateau. I have faith in you.

    Way to go, being a the same weight is good. At least you aren't gaining weight. Remember the slower you loose it the better chance you have of making the right choices to keep it off in the end. You'll do great!
