The Easter Bunny Didn't Come

Sunday, April 12, 2009

The Easter Bunny didn't come this Easter, and that's ok, my waist-line is grateful.


Errr, "Fat and Useless"

Monday, April 06, 2009

I heard someone call herself "fat and useless" today. It saddened me a great deal. Not just because it obviously came from a sad place, but also because it is frustrating to always see the adjectives 'fat' and 'useless' used together. This individual was externalizing something the world tends to reinforce often.
While i would argue that very few people are actually all together 'useless.' I would argue even more strongly that, even if by chance someone is useless, it has nothing to do with their weight.
This implication that because someone is overweight, they are somehow less productive, or less needed is so FALSE it infuriates me.
In frustrates me that people's weight are seen to be a reflection of every aspect of their life, which is truly not the case.
People are people regardless of their shape, colour, hometown they deserve the same respect.
ERRR, since when did body size or type dictate someone's ability.

    I don't know when that happened, but I've heard it said by others two, my mother included. It breaks my heart to hear her of all people say something like that. Hopefully, this will change someday soon :-)

    you'll get back on track. I find when I go home to visit and don't have control over what I eat I always eat more then I should. Also I went to the in laws last weekend and ate like there was no tomorrow but I also had surgery on the 21 of july and hadn't eaten a lot in the three days before going but you'll get there make small changes each day and remember your goals. good luck angie

    Remember you didn't get to this place in a day or a few weeks and it will take time for you to become accustom to eating better. You can always detour and return having learned more about yourself. Don't beat yourself up even if you did gain. You know what happened and you're not ready to lead that lifestyle constantly again.

I've been at this for almost 9 months and have learned so very much about myself from each and every detour.

Enjoy your journey to a healthier you.

Week 2

Sunday, June 24, 2007

Grrr. The week was ok, i'm getting better at staying within my caloric range (up until last night), though i didn't loose any weight, which is ok cause i lost so much last week. But last night was the worse, i don't know what it was but as soon as 8 p.m. hit i swear i started eating like everything in house, I ended up going like 500 cal over my zone... err. Frustrating cause i couldn't stop myself. But todays a new day and im determined to stay within my range.
Next weekend will be the biggest challenge with the holiday coming up. I'm going out of town, which will be fun but inevitably there will temptations galore. I'm certain i can do this though, I just need alittle determination.

    I love your attitude!! Today is another day. Remember one day doesn't blow everything you have accomplished. I have had many of those days over the 9 months that I've been here @ SP and each time I learned something new about myself.

You CAN take a detour on your journey and return to your path. Good for you!

First week!!

Saturday, June 16, 2007

Ok, so its the end of my first week on SP and I have weighed in at 170, which is a 5 lbs loss. I'm kinda surprised since i have gone over my calorie range i think ever day but one...but then again i exceeded my weekly exercise three fold, so i guess it evens out. I ran 3 k yesterday which was super exciting, it was hard, but totally worth it.
This week I am making it a priority to focus on two things in particular-- 1) Not going over my calorie range for the day and 2) NO eating in front of the TV (why does Dr. Phil come on right at dinner time???)
Anyways i'm off to the gym to do the strength training i skipped out on yesterday in lieu of the run.
Peace. Passion. Pursuit.
