The answer was Yes!

Thursday, June 18, 2009

My husband, who is Jamaican, had an interview at the US Embassy in Jamaica today regarding a Visa. He phoned about an hour ago . . . the answer was YES. Finally my love can move. We have been working on this for 8 months - he can't travel outside the islands until he has the Visa in hand - it's been a long time coming.

They deliver the Visa to him on June 26 and then we can start making plans. Likely I will fly down there for a short vacation and we will come home together. OMG!

Woo Hoo - the answer was Yes!!

Betrayed, Again

Monday, June 15, 2009

The little voice in the back of my head told me to step on the scale today. I usually just ignore that little voice when it whispers about the scale. Today, I did not. I brought the scale out from its hiding place and got it set up in the bathroom . . . I stripped to my birthday suit and took a step. Oh my . . . I could feel the anger before the digital scale stopped sputtering.
I stood there, staring down at what I thought was a cruel joke. Yup, betrayed, Again. WTF!

I stepped off the scale and put "it" back in the closet.

I've been on this same plateau for over two years. This latest course of action my doctor has me is supposed to move me off of it. So far, not yet. SERIOUSLY!

I do all the right things and yet . . . Nothing. emoticon

Well, that little voice will be silenced for awhile and the scale will just live in the closet or maybe at a friends house. My anger has been reduced to mere whimpers and the tears continue to threaten. Today's weigh-in was just another betrayal and a cruel joke.

I stand resolved and look forward to my works out this week and my efforts to walk more.

A friend has a theory, "maybe you're trying too hard" - could be. She continued with, "let go a little and have some fun" - maybe. It has been more fun since I joined SP.

Until the next weigh-in I'll just keep moving and shaken my tail. emoticon

    I've noticed if I'm strict on my calories and stay in my range, then splurge 1 day a week by about 200 calories I can usually jump start my weight loss. My only problem up until this past week was I was splurging whenever I wanted! Good luck!! I have faith in you!!

    Shake it baby. Way to stay in the game, despite your 'betrayal.' You will beat this.

My Own Challenge

Sunday, June 14, 2009

I'm going to challenge myself to walk more. I love going to the gym and working out but I hate walking around town. In fact, I try to avoid it at all cost. I am determined to break that habit and thought process immediately. I know it won't be easy but I am determined and I know I can do it. If I can stop drinking soda I can certainly walk more. emoticon

    WOOHOO!!! You can do it!!!! I started by walking and slowly progressed to running when walking was no longer a challenge. Quick plug, I love Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds videos, I use them when the weather or kids have me stuck in the house. They are a little more than walking, they involve light weights or resistance. I saw amazing changes when I started the videos, until they were not much of a challenge anymore, my go to now when I use them are the 4 and 5 mile ones (they really give a great workout still.) They have 1-3 miles also! Might be something worth looking into!

Congrats on the soda! I know when I quit it was tough!

You are doing AWESOME!!! Keep up the great work!!!
