Have you ever heard the saying "She has a one track mind." In my case its a good analogy. I tend to get very focused on one thing at a time. Which is wonderful if my focus is on my diet. This week however, my focus was not on my diet. My husband and I spent the week painting my little girl's room pink and our living room green. We went and saw a movie, looked at buying a new car (didn't get one), we were soooo busy.
I didn't go completely off and slip back into my old habits, but I did lose focus. I would not quite count my calories, or I would eat mindlessly, real butter, Reese's Peanut Butter eggs, which just so you know must be made by the devil himself . . . . Anyway you get the idea. So I went a little off the track.
Am I going to quit? NO
Am I going to berate myself? NO
Am I going to say I will never, ever eat real butter ever again? Not without my nose growing like Pinocchio.
Am I going to boycott the makers of Reece's Peanut Butter Eggs? Maybe
Am I going to get back on track? Yup!

Okay, put down the phone, don't call social services just yet!! My daughter is fine and sitting in the living room watching Nick Jr.
However, I have lost 35.4 pounds which is exactly what my daughter weighed when she stepped on the scale this afternoon. I have lost a very tall two year old!!!
The crazy thing is I'm always picking her up and telling her how heavy and big she is getting, but I used to walk around with that . . .EVERY DAY!! No wonder I felt terrible before, I was hiding a toddler somewhere!
Adam (my hubby) has lost the same amount almost. Together we have lost twins!!
Now, next goal, lose one of my first graders!! The weight not really lose one of them.

Okay, so a week and a half ago Thursday I ran out of my High Blood Pressure meds. I know I should have immediately called the doctor for my refill, but oh, no, not me. I figured I'd lost 35 pounds, I probably didn't need them anymore. So I made an appointment for last Friday, meaning that I would have been off of them for over a week. I thought I would walk in and my doc would say, hey wow, you are cured, lets get rid of those silly ole pills. It didn't QUITE work out that way. More like hmm, your bp is 145 over 100! Have you been taking your pills? So needless to say they are now refilled. SIGH! I know I didn't get hbp over night, so no it's not going to go away overnight, but one can dream.
On a good note, I am no longer morbidly obese, I'm just obese. I was also anemic last time, but am now on the low side of normal. So I'm at least moving in the right direction.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know I did!

I sometimes feel like a stalker on spark lol. You know the feeling, where you can't wait to log on and see what your latest SparkHeroes are doing. I've picked out some definate people that I am following closely. The people who have really lost 50 or more pounds and are still working their butt off literally to keep the scale moving in the right direction. These people have now become my heroes. Heroes like CoachDNuke, Treble02, Larosebaugh, SpunkyDucky and many others who inspire us to be better on a daily basis.
So what sets them apart from the pack?
Do they have some miracle pill? NO
Do they have some miracle diet? No-as far as I can tell they are each doing a different diet.
Do they have a genie in a bottle? No
Do they have a personal trainer and personal cook? No - well not that I know of.
Is it real easy for them? No- as far as I can tell, these people struggle with ups and downs and falling off the wagon and plateaus the same as the rest of us.
What sets them apart is their attitude. It is a never give up, never surrender, I'm done being the fat girl or guy, nothing can stand in my way, when life gives you lemons make fat-burning sugar free lemonade, when the going gets tough the tough do a 5k attitude.
Most of them have been doing this steadily for a year or more. Most of them see that life does not give you roadblocks it gives you hurdles, meant for you to jump over and keep on trucking.
THEY DON'T QUIT.
They may be losers, but never quitters.
So am I a quitter? Heck NO!
Am I a loser? You better believe it!
Am I a SPARKHERO? Not yet!
