So Insulting

Sunday, January 25, 2009

Hind sight, an amazing thing. When I was 303 lbs I stopped weighing didn't want to know. I broke my foot n had to use crouches NOT EASY BEING BIG. So I decided to lose some weight. My hubby was talking about I didn't need to lose N that he like the way I looked etc etc. Then he was like if it will make u happy do it. I lost the weight gained half back.

It's a couple years later, I m tired of hearing the Dr's tell me I wont be in so much pain if I lost some weight then I got pneumonia, start having to use a nebulizer. Dr's tell me more wont need it so much if I lose some weight .

I decide it's time to do this, hubby was really against it, but I started any way. Now he is my biggest support (he is enjoying the results). Well Sat @ my dil baby shower i was truly shocked. When of the young ladies from the church. Who I've watched grow up. Asked me if I was leaving my hubby, shocked I asked WHY. She told CAUSE GIRL YOUR LOOKING REALLY GOOD YOU CAN REALLY SEE THE WEIGHT YOU LOST. I informed her NO just trying to get healthier 2 b able to have a better life with my hubby. She apologized but I was upset. Then later on another person jokingly says HE BETTER BE TREATING HER RIGHT CAUSE IF HE DON'T WATCH IT SOMEONE GONNA COME ALONG N SNATCH HER AWAY. I'm still upset

Hubby & I discussed it & he also is upset then he informed me that it was a concern of his.
We looked at only other 3 people that we know that ever lost weight, although not related to their weight lost or so I believe I began to c y ppl r asking if my marriage is okay. 3 ppl lost weight 1st cheated 2nd cheated n left hers 3rd separated WOW
Opened my eyes, glad hubby n I discussed it hey if I didn't leave him during the legal problems n all those hardships I ain't going no place now. I know that he realized this before the discussion cause he now reminds me to do my workouts. He even walks with me to help motivate me.

I was feeling so good about ppl seeing my progress n realizing how serious I m about this. But a few 'jokingly' said comments were just sooo insulting. It will not deter me I WILL FINISH WHAT I STARTED. I will get healthier & loss this weight.

    Wow!!! People never cease to amaze me - the nerve of them asking of you were leaving your hubby. I know that sometimes those in our life sabotage us bc they are subconsciously afraid we might leave them once we become happier, healthier people. I think it is awesome and I applaud you and your husband for having the maturity and courage to talk about these things with each other. Kudos to him for supporting you in your journey to become a healthier you and kudos to you for being so open about your journey. Thanks for the blog - I'm sure there are many out there who will benefit from your example. Communication is SO important.

    I feel that anybody that truly knows you would not think you would leave your husband, That is ridiculous isn't it!

By the way Maga, You look great in those pics. Way to go! Proud of you!
I am glad people noticed your nice loss though!

    I have no means to relate to that. WEIRD is all I can say. I dont get bent anymore about other people's presumptions. Most of the time I have no clue what they mean, then when someobody explains it or I question...and I understand, I just count it up to their ignorance, stupidity, ass-uming...LOL
If you and your hubby both love each other, and take the journey to become more healthy and fit together or with support to one another, then screw everybody else or what they think. They are NOTICING a difference so that is progress, take the good for what its worth, and let go of the rest. dont let others upset you, dont give away your power, you are the only one who decides whats best for you, what you think, what you say, and how you feel!!! swmawk

Baby Shower

Saturday, January 24, 2009

Baby shower was a great way to get my steps in did over 12000. Yes I ate the cake but I did not go over my calories for the day. Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the peanut butter cookies, I loved the look on their faces when I told them that they were sugar free. Well time to get some sleep I have church in the morning

  


I Forgot How Good Fried Chicken Was

Friday, January 23, 2009

WOW! I forgot how good fried chicken was.
Tomorrow is my dil baby shower n I'm helping my son to throw it. So as usual I m makin my famous fried chicken (everyone always request it) I did make healthy peanut butter cookies too. But I tasted the fried chicken n ate3 pieces, WOW WAS IT SOOOO GOOOOD.
Yeah I know I should control the food n not let the food control me. After 2 days of being sick n not eating . I m regretting it now but its too late to do it. So instead of having regrests I m going to start execising again today. Not wait till I'm back to being 100%.
Well back to Baby Shower Prep

    There are worse cheats, at least you stopped at 3 pieces. LOL It could have been country fried steak with biscuits and dumplings. LOL I never beat myself up for going over range anymore...I only do it like 2x a week and only by less than a couple hundred calories. Easy enough to workout and compensate in the overall deficit for the week.
After three years at this...Consistency with exercise is my real issue. LOL
So have you tried using whole wheat, sugar substitutes/brown sugar or more healthy ingredients for your baked goods yet?

Day 71

Saturday, January 17, 2009

Well today is day 71 on Spark People.
It has been filled with many ups n downs for me. Being an emotional mess to begin with gets worse when going thru major changes like I m. I've loss 23 lbs since I began this journey. Even though I m making progress I m filled with so many days that I want to just give up YES, I know all the things to say n if it was some1 else going thru this I can support them but when it's my own demons it ain't so easy.
Hubby has been very support n is now actually pushing me to do what I need to. I was losing weight steadily with just walking n checking my calories, then I started to do the work out videos with the boot camp n my weight loss kind of stopped my weight only went down this week cause I had to take water pills to deal with fluid retention. So I think this week I'm gonna go back to focusing on walking being my main thing.

    Me too!! I always tend to overwhelm myself...piling on more and more things to track, to do, to exercise, to learn how to cook....etc. I always seem to do too much or go too far with exercise, or get too complicated or unable to stucture any real consistency with it.
It seems to me I lost the most steadily just by staying in range and walking after meals.
I decided to simplify again and yet progress onward with goals...yet witout adding to my daily need to do list or getting complicated with so much ST. I think the New You Bootcamp is enough.
So I walk, walking is great...but my body gets used to it and adapts. So I need to walk more often. When I get to 3x a day, I will walk faster, when i get to a certain distance within a certain time, I will interval my walk with jogging and just go onward from there.
