I'm in Trouble -- with a capital "T."

Sunday, January 26, 2014

emoticon emoticon
I can't believe I've let myself down again and have gained weight. I'm really going to have to restore my sense of discipline and keep tracking.
I am going to commit to this today -- not starting on Monday. I will make it back down and continue on to my goal weight and I will succeed.
I know I can do it. emoticon

    No worries!! Try looking at this temporary weight gain ( I say temporary cuz you obviously care and that alone will drive you to succeed) as not just a numbers thing...I know whenever I have gained weight back it's almost 90% stress related.

You are in charge of you and sometimes when it comes to our bodies it's almost like saying no to a child....repeat, repeat, repeat and eventually no means no! lol

Best wishes to you on your journey! You got this! =D emoticon

    We all faulter at times, the trick is to do what you are doing, just GET BACK on track. Be determined to stick to it. And most of all BELIEVE in yourself and your goal.
You are so right YOU CAN AND WILL DO IT!!!!!

Smiles and Hugs

Six Weeks Later -- OH, NO!!

Friday, October 11, 2013



emoticon emoticon I came back with good intentions and everything in my world has conspired against me making myself a priority and getting back on the program.
Today, October 11, is my turnaround day and I will make every attempt to check in and work the program.

Thanks for all the support I got for my failed comeback -- I will show you that I deserved it by sticking with it -- no matter what.

I'm BAAAACK!!

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I'm coming back to the program -- I had maintained my weight loss and then due to stress and unconscious eating, suddenly I fell back into old patterns and suddenly, I'm up 6 pounds -- and I am determined to reverse it and get back on the path to weight loss.
I'm excited to come back and join the great people at SparkPeople and I know I will find my inspiration and determination.

I'm on my way!!

    Welcome back and the good news is that you came back after only a 6 lb gain, you didn't let it get too out of control. Many people will just continue to avoid the scale and continue to gain. You can get back on track and lose that 6 lbs and keep on going if you want to! You can do this!

I Can Exercise

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Who would have thought a couple of years ago that I'd be thrilled to hear that I wouldn't have to stop exercising because of an injury? My DH said that's how much I've changed, that the thought of not being able to exercise was upsetting and that I didn't turn to food.

For the back story, I took a fall a couple of weeks ago in the grocery store -- some liquid in the aisle. I managed not to fall all the way, caught myself on the cart, but smacked the the side of my foot -- which instantly ballooned up, I really had so much going on that I put it on the back burner and was doing mostly walking for exercise because I could do that when I was working. Well, this week I finally started going to class -- pain! I had an x-ray that showed 2 fractures to the side of my foot. Thank goodness I was referred to a great podiatrist and he said that the walking and light exercise was actually helping me heal -- the bones were lined up and I should continue doing what I had been doing -- no cast, surgery or anything. He said that if I hadn't been exercising at all, it would have been a problem.
This is the first time I can remember when I've handled an issue without becoming an emotional eater -- but it could be because I got rid of all my big (in case) clothes and if I gain weight I have to go out and buy new big clothes -- which is not going to happen.
This has proved to me that I can handle my new lifestyle of eating tight and exercise, even through the unexpected situations and thank you Sparkers for all your support.

    Good for you, but it sounds strange to say keep exercising on a broken foot--I'm just saying....

Made It -- Moving On!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

Well, I made it through the wedding, sinus infection, pulled ligament, cousin visit, daughter's visit and baby shower -- WooHoo.

I actually made it and I'm really ready now to take a little time for myself and get myself back to working out on a regular basis, not just walks. My foot is healing well and I've been released to go back to working out. My sinus infection is gone and I'm getting back on my eating plan -- and just joined the Teddy Bears for the fall challenge, which should help me stay on track.

For the next 6 weeks I'm going to make every effort to maintain good habits, journal what's happening and be ready for the big holiday season. I do have an advantage that at the end of October I'll be working out of town for a week and there will be no reason to buy Halloween candy and we're planning on traveling for Thanksgiving -- no leftovers.

Thanks to all the support that I get from Sparkers -- both from actual responses from others in the program but also just reading and being inspired by the wonderful and inspirational stories of others.

Let's look forward to the next great holiday season -- go Sparkers.

    You picked the right team. The Teddy bears rule! I like the way you are thinking ahead to the holidays. Good job! If they broadside you you can really fall off the cliff.
