Wish I Hadn't Eaten That...

Monday, March 21, 2011

The last few days have been a series of, "Wish I hadn't eaten that" moments... My appetite has been out of control and I really need to get a grip. I leave for my trip in less than 3 weeks. I should have lost 10 pounds by now but I am only down about 5 and who knows what the scale will say tomorrow... I don't even want to get on it... SOOOOOOO..... Tomorrow I refocus and get back on track. The only positive thing I can say about the last few days is that I did still exercise. In fact, I bought a Dance Workout game for the Wii. I tried it out today and even though I suck, I had fun. Tomorrow I focus and buckle down and lose at least 3 more pounds before I leave on vacation. I know I can do it - I believe in myself!!

    Man we are not having good weeks are we! I am in the same boat with you. I feel like I watch what I eat...I am not perfect I have some things that I shouldnt have been I know in the overall scheme of things that I am doing good and that eventually it will show whether on the scale or in my clothes. So.....keep up the good work, take the downfalls just like we take the upsides of things. We can do this and we will do it the right way! I got your back!!!!

Wanted to exercise today and I thought I better not, my ankle has been swollen the last two days. I just want it to get stronger so that I don't have to go slow on the treadmill - I feel like it is holding me back. I am not a patient person and I know that watching what I eat helps and walking slow is better than no walking at all but I am still frustrated... I am in the "Let's Exercise and Lose Some Weight" mode and I don't want my frustrations to overcome that - it is hard enough to get motivated anyway!

Dear God, please help my ankle to heal and become stronger each day. Please help me to be patient and understand that You may have a reason for this obstacle. Please help me to remain motivated to make this a lifestyle change this time instead of continuing to live this cycle of losing and gaining. These things I ask in your son Jesus' name. Amen.

    Oh how come I didnt know you were struggling like this. You are doing fine! You just need to take it slow and let that ankle heal the right way. You are walking at least three times a week and I think after you walk you need to put your leg up and relax it and maybe ice it/alternate heat and it will be right before you know it! Also motrin for the swelling!!!!! Keep doing what you are doing and you will be back to normal before you know it! I love you and times have turned because now you are motivating me! Hang in there!

    Look at this as another chance to meet a challenge head on and overcome it. Before you know it you'll be back on that treadmill!

    I am in a wheelchair and use a walker. There are exercises you can do in a chair even.

Here is a link to a few:
(just copy and paste)

Hope it might help.

Back Again...

Monday, October 05, 2009

Okay - after several months off it is time to get focused again. I have regained 10 pounds since my last weigh-in in May - it takes so long to come off and look how quickly it comes back on - NOT FAIR!!!

If I can really learn to incorporate exercise into my routine, I know that I will be better off. I stopped everything - watching what I eat and exercising - that is my downfall.

I could make excuses - work has been so stressful lately, I haven't had time, etc... - but they are just excuses. If I want my health to be a priority, I will make it a priority.

I am getting back on track today. Wish me luck!!

    Oh my poor little Ms Kelley!!! We did so well together on this last year and we will get back into the swing of things. We just gotta realize that we have to make us a priority. We have both had "other priorities" this summer and it made us fall off that wagon but I am so ready to get back on there if you are! Having you right down the hall helps and as long as you keep me in check I will keep you in check and we can get back down to our "LION KING" weight again and be looking fine!

Back on Track

Sunday, April 19, 2009

This last week has been tough - eating-wise. I have not done well at all. I thought I would give myself a really free day on Easter and it kind of lasted all week. I really think I have a sugar addiction and eating all of the candy that I did has made me hungrier. I can blame it on the fact that I will start my cycle this week but that is just another excuse. I have got to get back on track this week - No, I WILL get back on track this week. I want to look good when I visit my family in May. I did not spend the last 6 months losing weight to let one week blow it all for me. I've got this!! Go Me!!

    You got this GO YOU!!! Okay I will blame it on me and Gale because we left you during a holiday and friends shouldnt do that to friends!!!! You will do fine. You gained a little and probably if you would have worked out then that little bit of treat that you gave yourself wouldnt have hurt so much. We are back we are going shopping on Thursday and we are going to look HOT for the Lion King!!!! You are truly my Godsend. I dont know what I would do without you to listen to my woes and geez they seem to be flowing in right now! My momma will be here sometime this week she is gonna wanna leave because I will be crying all the time!!!!! Stay strong and know that I am here whenever you need me! GO YOU!!!!

Jeans - Jeans - Jeans

Saturday, April 04, 2009

All I wanted was a new pair of jeans that fit. Doesn't seem like they should be that difficult to find, right? I have lost about 25 pounds now, I should find something no problem, right? In and out of the mall in maybe an hour, right? WRONG!!!!! I spent about 3 1/2 hours at the mall trying to find some jeans. Why do designers today think that all women love the stretchy jeans? I can't stand them - I don't want something that clings to me like a second skin, Hello - I have body issues and don't want to feel like everyone is looking at me saying, Geez, didn't she look in the mirror before she left - can those jeans get any tighter???? All I want is a pair of jeans that are 100% cotton but they are very hard to find. I even tried on some guys jeans today - they were probably the ones that fit me best - SAD!! And if I did find some jeans that were all cotton, my thunder thighs made it so that they wouldn't pull all the way up OR if they did, they were low rise and then the muffin-top fear made me quickly take them back off. Thank goodness it is getting warmer out and I can get away with capri's - at least I found a couple pair of those that fit...

If anyone knows of some great jeans that fit a pear shaped body - let me know!!!!

    I'm also pear-shaped, or as I like to say, hourglass with a solid base. emoticon
I'm living in Japan and finding it sooooo hard to find bottoms (jeans) that fit. Most japanese women don't even have a butt!
My waist-hip size difference is 40cm (approx. 15 inches), and japanese brands trousers are only 20cm wider in the hips than in the waist. Now, try to imagine how THAT looks. emoticon
That style might be good if I ever get pregnant, coz then at least I'll have a belly to fill that huge gap. emoticon

    I love you! You have issues just like me....muffin top! Pear shape? Where? It isnt your body that is bad it is the jeans. Trust me I know jsut like you. I cant find dress pants anywhere!!! We so need a trip to the city....I was thinking the weekend of the 25th maybe? Or heck maybe we just need to take a day off of work and go together! I like that idea better .... pick a day and we are going to the city! me and You dresses and jeans or dress pants! We will find something there!!!!! I am game if you are and I dont want to hear about how you cant take off work because you are so busy. I know you have enough leave days and heck with work. We deserve this....we can invite Gale if you would like but NOBODY ELSE!!! Girls back by 4:00!!!! I love you!

    Hey there, I was just scanning new blog entries and stumbled across yours. I also have a pear shaped body. I like jeans from New York & Co. They have a stretch to them but aren't overly clingy. They also tend to fall mid-waist which I like for controlling my tummy. :)
