It's Still There!!!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

This is crazy...I joined the Virtual Walking Team on September 1st. I am so addicted to virtually "getting to Canada" I have to force myself NOT to walk all the time. I know this sounds crazy, but the weather here has been nuts, 80's one day and then 50's, windy and rainy the next, and then back to 80's again emoticon I forced myself to stay in on the cooler day so that I would not get sick. My husband says that have have lost it and should be commited lol. I have to agree with him, I went from NEVER doing any exercising to walking 21.66 miles last week emoticon I am so excited...however...I looked at the scale on Monday and it hadn't moved (up or down)! Craziness, I know I walked my butt off, but when I turned around it was still there!!! Oh well, maybe it will change this week.

    I blogged a bit about the number on the scale recently. There are some things that are better measures of your progress, and you'll know what they are when you feel them. I'm sure you feel more energetic, for example. You should write these things down whenever you notice them...they really motivate me...maybe they'll do the same for you.

Keep up the great work! You're awesome! emoticon

I have met my breaking point

Wednesday, September 03, 2008

Hi everyone. I hope that everyone had a great Labor Day weekend...I did...I got Married on Friday! I am so happy, but at the same time I just wanted to cry myself to sleep Sunday night when I looked at the pictures.

The first one that stood out to me was the one that is entitled "Oh my gosh...I look like Roseanne Barr". That one made me laugh, I could hear her goofy laugh when i looked at that picture.

The one that got me was the one entitled "The point when I knew I had to change". I NEVER look at my whole body in a mirror because I don't like what I see. If I could draw who I feel I look like, noone would know me except myself, (I know that sounds crazy) even my face would be different. So, when I saw this picture, I was shocked at how big I have let myself become. I noticed that even my wrists are big, and i see them every day, but when I see the whole picture, WOW I am shocked!

I work at Wal-Mart and see people on a daily basis who can't shop without stoping to rest or they can't even walk and I think " I will never let myself get that big", but guess what...I am already there, I have just been dealt a healthier hand...for now...

    I know the feeling. I was walking down the street one day and happened to say to my dad 'if I ever get that big, shoot me' while walking past someone who looked really overweight (yes I know, it's mean and I shouldn't have said it) and my dad had to tactfully point out I was already bigger than this person.... that was an eyeopener.

    Hey, I think you look beautiful! Congratulation on your marriage. I know that we as women can be so hard on our personal appearance. I do that to myself all the time. Also you do not look like Roseanne!

    You know, it was interesting to see you write that. I used tell myself all the time, "Well I know I'm big, but at least I'm not THAT big." But I am. And when I finally accepted that I wonder how many people used to look at me and think the same thing about themselves.

Congratulations on your marriage!!! And I happen to think you look absolutely beautiful!

Consider us Shake n Bake. You can do it and we can help!

Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Friday, May 30, 2008

Today I began reading Inspiration to Persperation, a book that I bought through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This book will be a big help to me in my life because it helps me to set and attain goals. ANYWAY... I was looking for a notebook to write my goals and action plan in and found a cute bright pink one. I looked at some others but this one seemed perfect, when I turned it over it said that a portion of the procedes go to the LLS. THEN I went over to get some pencils...and there were ones that matched and also supported the LLS. I know that this is a sign that this is the right time to get in shape and do something with my life.
I have trained with the LLS twice and both times was unable to raise the money that I needed to compete in my events. This was very heart breaking to me, but maybe if people can see that I can lose weight and get in shape then they will know how determined I am to succeed in an event with the LLS

    My mom had AML, one of the worst leukemias for her age group to have. I say "had" because thanks to a mini-bone marrow transplant, she is cancer free right now! When you support groups like the LLS, it helps people like my mom! So thank you! :)

(PS. It sounds like you have the determination to persevere and achieve your weight loss goals, I am glad you are on my BLC team!)

    You may have figured it out already - but there is a time zone setting you can change so that your blogs/trackers will match your time. It's on your Start page, in red under START - Welcome Less3Hug! - it'll say account/email preferences. You can change it there. :-)

Good luck with this journey and I look forward to getting to know you on the Black Knights forum!

Jennie ;-)
