Attack of the Easter Bunny!

Sunday, April 08, 2007

Oooooohhhhhh the Easter bunny has attacked! He stopped by my house and left lots of chocolate goodies for my children. That is awesome for my kids but disastrous for me. I am a chocoholic and have been since I was a little girl. My mom jokingly says that my first word was 'chocolate.'

When you combine a chocoholic who is trying to lose weight with the arrival of the Easter Bunny you get a cranky chocoholic fighting the chocolate urge. I don't know if I can do this. I keep telling myself I can do it and I keep all my motivators at hand to look at and I have grabbed fruit to eat instead of chocolate but I don't think I can hold out any longer. I feel like devouring the entire easter basket of goodies! HHHHEEEEEEELLLLLPPPPPPPPP!

  Wow....I totally understand every entry you've made. After years of struggling myself, I have finally realized that I am not on a diet. I am on a lifestyle. Until I figure out a way to handle all the spring breaks and easters I hope to encounter over years and years of a healthy life, I am always always going to consider myself a failure.

Live a little, decide what you willl and will not do to 'handle' these situations in a way that allows you to enjoy the moment without giving up your lifestyle. This is a good choice to make for all the goals you have set for yourself.

You can do it.

bye bye pink dress???

Tuesday, March 27, 2007

I am beginning to think that wearing my pink dress for my sisters wedding is not going to happen. I feel like I am just not losing enough weight fast enough.

I am a fighter by nature and always fight to meet conditions I want that currently aren't unavailable. I can feel that fight kicking in a little bit so at least that is a good thing. I haven't given up all hope of getting into the pink dress, but the image is fading.


fell off, back on again

Monday, March 19, 2007

Yep, March Break came and my healthy diet left. I completely fell off the wagon over March Break but I am once again up and back onto eating healthy.

Something amazing happened to me this time when I fell off the wagon - I got sick. Literally, at the end of the week I felt incredibly sick in my stomach but it wasn't a flu-like sick, it was an I ATE TOO MUCH sick. For one entire day I felt like my body was detoxifying itself of the fast food and the junk food I had eaten. I have never ever had that feeling before.

So I am back and refreshed and ready to start my healthy living adventure once again.


the little engine that could

Thursday, March 08, 2007

I have been the same weight for over 2 weeks now and am a little down in the mouth about that. I like to see fast changes and right now my changes are happening too slowly for my liking. I just keep picturing the dress I am wearing in my sisters wedding this summer. It is beautiful and I can't wait to wear it, but I have to lose some weight or the dress won't fit. That is my biggest incentive right there.
I have to keep remembering the little engine that could - I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.
As I alway say to others - keep your chin up chick!

    hey there best friend!! I know you are going to liook beautiful for Joanne's wedding!! I have been where you are, and for me it took adding exercise and more exercise. Here's a question for you -- are you interested in doing a virtual 5k with me? I signed up for it, it is on my webpage. You can walk or run, go on the treadmill, di it whatever way you want and then just log in your time. It is on April 1st. Feel up to it? I think we should be keeping tabs more often, I know it helps me focus. How about it buddy??? Cindy

I have to try to get over my impatience. I always want results NOW, at this moment and I hate to wait. I know losing the weight slowly is better for me than a rapid weight loss but I find it frustrating to only lose so little at a time. And reaching a plateau where you stay the same weight for a few weeks - don't even let me go there! That is frustrating I could scream!!
