Ok so I lost another pound and a half

Monday, November 19, 2012

emoticon I lost more weight but instead of feeling happy I feel down.
Too many things going on and i seem to be having problems getting places on time.
Hubby is unhappy I am not sitting on the couch eating and watching TV with him.
I just want to loose the weight and i have to break old habits.
One moment at a time I will stick to my plan. So now I will get the kitchen straightened up

    Keep up the good work! I can totally relate with the issues you are having with your husband. Lets say I've had a great day watching my calories and exercising, and he comes along just before bedtime with pb&j and milk! Sometimes he eats two of them as a bedtime "snack!" And he is not happy when I don't join him. We have to make it clear that food isn't everything. It is so hard!

Hang in there!

    This is an emotional process! Just take it one day at a time! You can do this!

    I think everyone goes through different emotions when they are on their weight loss journey. I am sorry your husband is not as encouraging as maybe he could be but it sounds like you are determined to make a change and I really hope you are successful. Just keep focused on your goals and just take it one day at a time. emoticon emoticon

Ok, am back on the horse.

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I have been on plateau for two years... walking and less food did not make a difference .. so this summer I looked into joining a gym and nothing! So I changed what I am eating and no snacks between meals and believe it or not a little more food in the form of cooked and raw veggies.
So I have gone down below my tracker weight and if I hold it I will start changing my tracker more frequently. Sometimes not eating enough of the right kind of foods makes a difference.

I got permission to print this in my blog because it feels like my journey.
I cannot see into the distance but I must continue to travel the way to better health.

Keep on keeping on

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Every day I feel like I need to do more but some of the things like cleaning house and doing the necessary yard work get in the way of going to the gym and walking. I am lucky because I have people who are willing to walk with me and that keeps me doing some of the things I do. I also appreciate the people who have been so welcoming at the water aerobics classes at my gym.
So just to be willing and ready but I really have to take care of my home space.
So it looks clean and straightened. I have some things I really need to get rid of too. .
Things I haven't used in years that are taking up space that would make my life easier if I had access to it. I am heading to be a hoarder if I don't start giving things away now.. No It is not that bad but I am sure there are others who could use some of my abundance.


Sunday water aerobics

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Do or do not. There is no try. Yoda

I always liked that saying because so many of my friend say....
" I am trying so hard and nothing ."
But so often they are trying the wrong things.
Like interfering in another person's self destructive behavior instead of taking care of themselves.
Or obsessing about what someone else isn't doing for them.

So just for today, I will fulfill the needs of myself .
Only help those who can't take care of themselves like the elderly and small children.
And surrender to the will of God for me today.

P.S. I did do an hour of water aerobics.. I'll see if I can do a walk but I have to vacuum.

I enjoyed every point in your post. Not everybody is strong enough to just mind to their own needs. I hope today you are able to treat yourself as positively & healthfully as possible. Have a wonderful day!!

2.5 mile walk and water aerobics.

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I walked slower today because my friend was having a problem with pain in her shin.
but I also did a killer water aerobic workout at Cal Fit Roseville , California.
Really feel great and hope other bigger ladies will give these kind of classes a try.
I have not hurt myself ,yet. I feel so good. I am also thinking about getting a fit bit if only to help me figure out why I am still on plateau even though people are saying I look better and all my clothes are getting too big.
