Lost in a Hurricane!!

Monday, August 03, 2009

How many scales must a girl stand on
Before you can call her thin?
And how many salads must that girl eat
Before she don't look like sin?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

How many times must a girl look down
Before she can see her feet?
'n how many miles must she walk on
Before someone thinks she looks neat?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

How many years can this women exist
Before she's allowed to be free?
And how many times can she turn her head,
n' pretend that she just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin in the wind,
The answer is blowin in the wind.

    Hi Big hugs to you.
Being free is much more than what we weigh.
It is a state of mind and changing our perceptions.
WTG on your efforts.

PITY...party of one.

Monday, July 20, 2009

I think I'm starting to fall back into my old patterns once again. This was a rough weekend for me. I don't know why, but if it dawdled for just a moment and didn't look totally repulsive...I was eating it. It was downhill for me once I had the Chinese food, and then proceeded to scoff down the 3 Musketeers bar, (the one that my helpful hubby brought home for himself, but let it sit there for 4 damn days, until it screamed so freakin' loud, it actually woke me up and made me eat it at 2:30 in the morning)...how's that for willpower. Heck I got tons of will power what I need now is some won't power. Then of course...true to form, once I screwed up, I embraced the completely logical theory of..."Well I made a mess out of things once again, so I may as well eat whatever I want for the rest of the weekend, it really doesn't matter anyway." I know that's stupid but once again I do exactly what is expected of a self-saboteur. Oh why am I my biggest adversary? I'm getting so incredibly tired of this fight, sometimes I often wonder what's the point. Sorry for the pity party...I guess I needed to vent and to see in print just how big a bonehead I can be.

    Carol,

I've done the same thing, so don't think you are alone. I've heard ice cream and candy calling for me too. What I do is say, "Okay, I had a set back, but tomorrow is a brand new day! And I can start back to eating healthier."

We can do this!

    Carol, you are not alone. Just be careful because of your blood sugar. Other wise it's all cool.

A Time For Thanks

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

I joined Sparks in Feb 2008...now in July 2009 it's close to a year and a half later and I'm 92lbs lighter. But even more than the weight loss it's the changes that have been made to my way of thinking. I was diabetic that never took her illness seriously. I'm not trying to be dramatic here, but had I not joined Sparks and met a wonderful group of folks who taught me how important I am, God only knows where I would be now. There's a quote by Margaret Mead that goes: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” That quote could not be more genuine and I thank God everyday for my group of citizens who have so completely changed my world.

    Carol, I feel the same way. It's not so much the weight it's the knowledge, the friends, the benefits since joining. You are doing well. Keep it up!

How's it going...well let me tell you....

Friday, June 12, 2009

I really haven't increased my time spent exercising. I'm doing it everyday, but have stayed around the 15-20 minute mark, (yeah I know pretty lame, but more than I used to do). I did become very conscious of the number of calories I'm eating and have tracked everything I've swallowed over the past 4 days. I'm not really sure if the Byetta (day 3) has decreased my appetite but I think it has made me more aware of noticing the difference between when my body is actually hungry and when it's just my mind telling me I'm hungry. I've always been a big nibbler and boredom tends to push me into the kitchen a lot. I'm trying very hard to stay busy elsewhere. I wish I could wrap my mind around the "joy of exercise", but so far I'm still waiting for the euphoria and exhilaration of the "runner's high". So far it's just me taking those baby steps, plodding along, on the dreadmill starring at the console lights, in total disbelief that it's only been 4 minutes since I got on it!

    If you should ahve a low reading and feel light headed or get the shakes and irritable feeling after taking the Byetta have a couple lifesavers or 1/2 c. orange juice. I'm praying it helps you like it did me.
