No. I am not sick!

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Lately people who i haven't seen in awhile have been coming up to me and hesitantly telling me i look good...then they say...are you ok? i tell them yes. they then ask, so you lost weight on purpose? i assure them i did lose the weight over a long period and quite intentionally and that i am the healthiest i have been in years.
i just feel weird when people ask me if i am ok.

    thanks mandylove. i live with my mom and i know she is jealous of my sucess. she keeps bringing home stuff she knows i like to eat but don't anymore. she had lost a lot of weight on weightwatchers but has gained most of that back and says she's just not ready to be thinner. she is miserable..she says she is proud of me yet she tries to sabotage me.

    Remeber some people have a hard time when someone is doing something they feel they themselves can't do. You've lost weight and so they may be a bit jealous. Don't let them get you down... and congrats.

    Its either they think your on some type of drug or sick. These are the same people that need to be on the same thing I'm on.

    I hear ya!
It's like when people say, "Oh you're losing weight? You look great."
Does that I mean I looked like crap until I started losing weight?
Some just don't think before they speak.
Congrats on your continued good health.

so this is what success feels like.

well...it appears that i've hit that first goal. i passed it by .2 lbs and when i put my new weight into the weigh in thing, it changed my goal to 174.8 instead of leaving it at 175. i'm not going to let myself rest here too long. i am changing it to 150 pretty soon, but it's nice to know i hit one big goal in my life. i'm excited.

I have been at 175-178 for a month but I am very slow at loosing my fat.
I just have to walk, walk, walk.

so close, yet so far

Monday, October 18, 2010

friday when i weighed in i was so excited to see 175 on the scale...but it was 175.4. i am .4 lbs from the goal i originally set when i weighed 260 pounds. i had a feeling as i got closer to my goal that i wouldn't be satisfied with ending there...and i was right. as soon as i hit that i am going to change it to 150. i'm excited to continue this journey. i am about 7 or 8 pounds from being "normal" on the BMI chart. i went from well into the obese range to overweight and now i am almost normal..wheeeeee.

i'm still me, can't you see?

Thursday, June 17, 2010

it's weird, this losing weight thing. i can't say it's been hard. i am not tempted by sweet treats and whatnot...and it's weird that for about the last two or three months people have been suddenly noticing i've lost weight. it's sort of embarrassing when people walk up to me and say OH MY GOD look at you.....or just not recognize me at all. i feel way healthier, but i really don't feel all that different. i mean, i am still the same me...though a happier version of me. i look back at my "biggest me" pictures and i can see that i don't still look quite like that, but i still don't feel thin by any stretch. i'm not sure what i'm trying to say...when will my head catch up with my body? when will i quit trying to try on x-large shirts? if i don't try things on i always buy the bigger size, assuming it will be just fine. i take a lot of things back.
so, i'm just wanting to see the me that everyone else sees.

    This is something that takes time. A person gets so used to seeing herself a certain way that, when changes do come, they're hard to accept, more often than not, whether good changes or bad. Keep up the good work, & I think you are starting to see the new you that's just a part of the you you've always been. I don't know you, but I can see from this post that you're starting to see another part of yourself here. :)

    thanks for all the encouragement.
today i put on my biggest levi's to go do outside work in. they fall off...so i put on my belt. it falls off. yay. lol.
it's cool i at least have the advantage of being tallish. i can look thinner than i am. when i tell people i still have another 25 or 30 lbs to go they look at me very doubtfully.

    You will adjust. Or so everyone tells me! LOL. I also look at clothes and think they are to small, put them on and they fit or are baggy. Congrats to you

i was so excited to get up and get on the scale this morning. i started at spark people weighing 260 lbs. i didn't feel huge..but i was. today i got on the scale and weighed 198 lbs. i almost cried to see my weight start with a 1 instead of a 2. the small things in life are huge to me right now.
i'm still not a skinny minnie, but i am so happy with myself and my progess.
thanks sparkpeople.
one of the best parts? i am no longer obese, but merely overweight. that is such a relief
