Its been awhile..

Monday, August 01, 2011

So don't know if anyone noticed.. well i know Carly did..but Ive kinda been m.i.a. for awhile. I've had so much going on and like usual when things get tough i put myself on the back burner and worry about everything and everyone else. Cant believe i went almost 2 months without being on here. Well it showed on the scale too..I had gained back at least 10 pounds. I know its from stress and not exercising. I told myself i had 2 weeks to at least get back to the weight i was before all this craziness before i left for the wedding and I did it. emoticon Yea im not at my goal weight like i wanted to be for the wedding but i have to keep telling myself. Self.. you have lost 29 pounds and for the most part you have kept it off. Be proud of what you have done and know that we are not done yet. Now my pep talk doesn't always work and evil Kim shows up to say you failed Kim you didn't hit your goal..your going to look huge standing next to your teeny sister in front of everyone and people are just going to point and compare. This is the Kim i daily battle with and no wonder i eat for comfort and sit on the couch instead of get up and move..shes not nice. When im here on SP i feel like i can do what i set out to do and so no matter what comes up I have to make a promise to myself to stay on here and fight for myself. Promise me yall will keep me in check because sometimes i feel like i need help fighting Evil Kim...
On a positive little nephew is now 10 months and Ive only gotten to see him 2 times. I'm 1000000000% jumping out of my skin excited to spend time with him. I will get to see all of my family at the wedding and the love of y life will get to meet the rest of the family he hasn't gotten to meet yet. There are so many positive things happening this week yet i focus on the negative. Pray i can keep my chin up and feel proud of what Ive done rather than self conscience while standing up next to my sister. I'll post pictures when I can...
Always feel good to vent on here.. emoticon emoticon

    I noticed you weren't around toward the end of the last challenge...I wish I'd posted on your page so you'd know you were missed.

But I'm really glad you're back now!!! I hope you're on 5% next season with us Starfish!

    Hey Kim
I've been on spark people for 2 and a half years and I just keep moving my "goal" date forward. You can do the same, too, and it's not a failure! Failure is quitting and never coming back. But you're back and that is a success in and of itself!! emoticon

Got a dress to fit in...

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

My sister is getting married in Aug and I just got my dress in...I thought it would help me motivate myself to order it in a size to small and it almost fits and well now im freaking out. Yes i know its only May and I have plenty of time but I really REALLY am getting nervous. I figured if I lost another 10-15 pounds I could safely fit into the dress at ease and maybe even have to get it altered smaller. This is the 3rd 5% challenge I've done and I start off really well but toward the center and end I get off track and dont keep up with my exercise and I'm really hoping this challenge I can stay focused especially since I have a goal dress to fit into. I started going to the gym with my roomies last week and i've always had a gym phobia. I felt very comfy and now im excited again to exercise! Glad I have supportive team mates and friends on here who keep pushing me. I will fit in my dress and ill post a picture here to prove it :) GO STARFISH!!

    That is a great motivator! I agree with others - leave it out somewhere so you see it often, and try it on once in awhile. If it fits or not - either way will be motivating - to get you rocking on your weight loss or to congratulate yourself on your success! Yay! Rock it, girl!!

    You are going to rock that dress! So glad to hear that you are starting to enjoy exercising. I used to HATE to exercise, and I would only hit the gym with my friend. I was way too afraid to go on my own. But I kept at it, and now, my friend has slacked off and I am totally addicted. Stick with it. You can do it!

    I think it is exciting to buy new clothes with the motivation of fitting into them. I also like keeping old clothes to try and fit in them again. Good luck!

    I have something at the end to keep you motivated this time. Why the gym phobia? I love the gym. I don't care that I am no the skinniest person there..I tell myself that I am there for a reason. Kind of like going to church...I don't go there because I am "perfect"...far from it, but I go for a reason. You are going to rock this challenge, and that dress come August. Hugs!!!

From birthday to birthday (Pics)

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

emoticon emoticon

So I was playing around with this new photo thing i got and i always wanted to do the side by side comparison thing. I cannot believe how much i can tell a difference in my face from 2 years ago! This comparison alone has made me feel 20000000x better about my WL journey. 2009 is the year i met my boyfriend and to look at that and look at now it feels awesome to know hes never seen me smaller before and the smaller i get the more self-confidence i have in myself and the healthier our relationship is getting. He's loved me since day 1 and i couldn't be luckier to have such an amazing man and i want to feel great and look great for not only myself but for him as well. Its been a tough week because i gained and anytime i have a gain i get bummed out and just want to pout about it. This picture has put the fire back under my butt to keep going and finish this journey Ive started. I've come a long way so far and i'm to close to my goal to quit now. Thanks everyone for all your support and kind words. Its means the world to me. emoticon

Where did my motivation go?

Friday, March 04, 2011

emoticon The past couple of days have been difficult. I wanted to just eat everything i see and i cant get full. Today was bad...i stayed within my calorie range but what i ate was bad. Im here to vent and get it off my chest so today my food consisted of... bowl of special k for breakfast not to bad... then lunch came and i was hungry, home alone and looking for anything. I ended up eating not 1 but 2 corn dogs... because i felt so bad for eating them i then ended up doing some Wii fit. I felt i had redeemed myself a bit. Then.. when dinner time came around...i wanted Chinese. My roomie who is dieting with me said we could ONLY if we split something and had soup first. I agreed and we both got egg drop soup which is very little calories but the sodium is HORRIBLE but it did knock the edge off of being "starving" then we had some white rice and orange chicken. The chicken ended up being really overcooked which was in my favor so i didn't eat much but i felt like i have failed for the day. How can i not have enough self control to just say no and eat something healthy? We weight in on Sundays and im really really worried about it now. I have so many events coming up and all i can think about is not being at my goal weight by then which you would think would be motivation enough but some days i just get in such a slump and well that's why i come on here and just ramble.. Sorry Ive been Debbie downer i just needed to get it off my chest. Tomorrows a new day right?... maybe i haven't fully screwed this week up and Sunday wont be as bad as im expecting.. emoticon

    Sometimes we just have those days. And though it is easy to say and sometimes hard todo, you need to just let it go and start fresh when this happens.

It could be worse you could hve done like me and od'd on twizzlers and ike and mikes!!

Hang in there. You can do it.

  i think we've got to be able to allow ourselves to have 'meh' days. days we could've done better, but for whatever reason... we fall short.
your day was not that bad. sure, those foods aren't healthy. but are you eating them everyday? nope. do you realize you shouldnt eat them much? yep!
everything is fine in moderation! i think it's important to take some lessons from this: make sure to have healthy food in the house, etc... but you had the most responsible chinese food experience i've ever heard of!
ultimately- do NOT beat yourself up over this. you stayed in calorie range AND you exercised- we have to allow ourselves days like this or we'll get burnt out.
let the guilt go!

    Don't give up!! Think of how far you've come, think of where you'd be if you had never started!!! We all have days of wanting to eat way too much or making not so great choices. It's life, it happens and we need to enjoy it. Start again and keep going!!! You have come too far to quit now. What about the rest of the week? Did you get in your water and exercise? One day doesn't make or break your week, month, or year!! Phil 3:14 "I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." ESV Forgive yourself and continue on your journey!! Don't forget to smile!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You will be okay...tomorrow is another day. You know sometimes I think when we get close to goal, we secretly sabotage ourselves. I don't know why...fear? But you know what you want, and you know how to get there, so you make it happen! You have come too far. Sending you lots of prayer and support.

If you dont stop your going to wither away...

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

emoticon emoticonI got to finally drive tue for the first time in over a month and now that i can im just driving bc why not.. ive been stuck in a house for over a month and its like FREEDOM haha. Soo.. I went to lunch with my love today it was very nice. I always enjoy getting to spend extra time with him. Hes my biggest fan as i am his and when i get to see him it makes my day 20 times better. On my way back home from lunch i stopped into work for the first time since i left on surgery leave over a month ago. All the girls looked at me and said.. holy cow you look great! My boss told me if i didnt stop i was going to wither away lol. As silly as it is it made me feel good, like i was actually losing enough for people to notice. So i went from having a HORRID low day yesterday to having a feel great day today. So i wanted to share my small feel good moment with my spark friends. Yall have no idea how much you encourage me and keep me going. Thank you STARFISH for all the kind words emoticon emoticon

It has been a hard winter and then being stuck in the house recovering. You deserve a spin or two around the block. If you make it as far as "home...look me up...laughs
