Know what to do but

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Trusting the process is very hard.
I am eating less calories but more than I need to loose.
I have upped the intensity of my walks and I believe we are going to join a gym this week to make more diversified exercising possible.
My mind knows what it wants to do but my body is just not ready for the next step.
I have been floating at my current weight for two years.
Hubby has lost down to a 32 waist and back up to 40 several times since 2007.
He won't listen and brings things into the house I should not have.
I feel like he comes in and says ... let's go out and eat ... I throw out my prepared lunch and we eat way more calories than we should. And i have to walk more to keep my weight stable.

It is the anniversary of my Mother's passing and I feel sad remembering the family drama of last year... But I have to keep believing that the process is in place..I have to just do each day with honesty and predictable behavior. I have pounds to my next goal. I know what to do. It is keeping remembering every moment of every day how much better I feel now.
I need to remember I will feel so much better. And maintenance will be so easy.

    Every time I get together with my family I have the same problem. Food has always been the center of all family gatherings. This does make it hard to eat right and to stop when your mind is telling you to, especially when they keep offering you another serving. LOL I just have to stay firm and say no thank you. It is hard but it is part of the learning process and the realization that you are the one in control and not the food.

    My pilates teacher had the same problem. She told her family if they brought the fattening/trigger food into the house she would toss it out, and she did. They stopped bringing the food home. Good luck!

Back to work next week

Friday, August 10, 2012

Work part time at a cafeteria at a school. Just serve the food, clean up and leave.
So I have time in the morning to go to Mass with a walk before or after.
I try to meet people but I can do it all by myself.
I have two walks set up next week one on Monday and one on Thursday.
But I must contact my tuesday walking partner to get back into the swing of things.
I am thinking of joining family fitness, which is really close to my house and has one in the next town over if I want to meet someone there. I am really jiggly and saggy. I do not want people who go to a gym to see me. But if nothing changes ...... I won't stop jiggling. But the sags will be worse. Oh well thank goodness for spandex.

    Good idea! Most people that go to the gym are more concerned with how they look and what they are doing than in others, so don't let that be a deterrent! I appreciate all you do to help with the new team; I think they are progressing nicely.

  Sounds like you have a great plan! Don't worry about what others see. Think about how good you'll feel! emoticon

Didn't purchase the picture.

Monday, August 06, 2012

Back when went to Hearst Castle I had a professional photo of hubby and me.
It is in my photos. It lets people see how big I was in my 2x outfit.
I went on a cruise in San Francisco Bay and there was another picture taken.
but I didn't purchase it not because I thought I was still looking too fat but because my outfit was really unflattering.
I had brought two outfits to wear on the Hornblower starlight cruise.
But it was cold and I decided to wear a short dress with slacks.
But I did not bring a jacket that matched with the dress.
So I was wearing this little casual pink jacket with an evening dress.
It looked horrible.
So from now on I must decide what I am wearing and take pictures of myself in the outfits.
Before I go and embarrass myself.

I really need to understand that I cannot just throw anything on and have it look nice in a picture. Pictures take planning.

    Ahh! Pictures don't necessarily have to take planning.. way back in my photography days they used to tell us normal photographers take about 2 rolls of film and normally use 1 maybe 2 out of all of those! I have kinda carried that with me since then.. Normally when I take pics of myself I have to try at least 10 to find one I really like lol! So I guess you just have to experiment with what you like and what you don't like. I am sure to the rest of the world you looked awesome though! :)

Going to a hornblower dinner cruise

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Off to an evening with hubby..
He is being lovely.
He is being kind.
We are just going to spend the day together.
But if I don't get off the computer and go he will get irritated.
I am good at irritating him...

Know your strengths.

Miss granddaughter

Monday, July 30, 2012

She left things all over the place, i had to clean.
She ran me ragged all over 6 flags and the state fair and old sac and maritime museum.
but I really miss her sweetness and her quiet ways and her just being around.
I loved every minute of her being here but I am glad her mom is taking such good care of her.
Love them forever.
