The number 2

Saturday, April 12, 2008

I have now met my 31 lb goal. Why 31 lbs? Because after 7-8 years it puts me back under 300 lbs. there isn't a lot of difference to most people between 299 and 300; but some of you know what a difference that one pound makes on your outlook in life. Well, my exercise challege tosay is to dance to one song and I am going to dance to two. One for the challenge and one to celebrate!!!!!

A better Today!

Saturday, April 05, 2008

I made better choices today. Yea! And I went out and walked a mile like I was late for an appointment. the only downfall is I am allergic to the outside air....LOL.... okay, so I am allergic to grass, and in the spring it really gets to me. Which is a real bummer! But I enjoyed my walk. I had fresh pineapple at dinner and it tasted so lovely, I wondered why I would ever crave anything else! The kids all enjoyed it an extra amount because I made a pasta dish as I went along, which I normally do, only this time I added some artichoke hearts, it was a little sour and no one really cared for the tase ~including me. LOL So I guess that is one way to really make your kids enjoy fresh fruit =)


One step back....now time to bike forward

Friday, April 04, 2008

Yesterday I jumped on my stationary bike and went 6.5 miles, 20 minutes @ 19-20 speed, intensity lvl on my bike goes to 16, I went as high as 11. I was so happy with my accomplishment. So...... why today??? I have to watch that I don't sabatoge my own efforts. I don't know why I do it, I just know I do. But today I found out my friend's daughter passed away. It was expected, but hurt none the less. I ache for her. I should have turned my pain into something powerful, like spending time on my bike or walking. But old habits die hard and I turned to comfort food. So, I have grieved my way. Now I need to work on healing myself. I am tired of feeling like the largest woman in a room. I am tired of imagining what people are saying about "the fat chick". Mostly I am tired of taking that stupid pill for diabetes that I shouldn't have and the pill for high blood pressure. I am ready to be healthier. I want to crave fruit instead of junk food! So.... here is to better choices tomorrow.

    Hi Kim, so sorry to hear about your friend's daughter.

I am reading a book called the Beck Diet Solution, How to think like a thin person, and it is teaching me so much about myself so far. This may be a good book for you to read to help you along your journey to a healthier lifestyle. Instead of purchasing the book I went to my local library. If you like when can discuss it daily or weekly and inspire each other. One thing I would say is follow every step even if you think that it is unneccessary.

3 pounds gone!!

Saturday, March 22, 2008

Three pounds down this week. It hasn't been easy and I haven't stayed on the diet very well. Which makes me wonder if I would have hit my 30 lb goal if I had stayed true to my new lifestyle? hmm..... no use questioning...just keep on going. I did too much of that and then deciding, well I messed this diet up, so I will start the next one on "Monday". How many "Monday's" of my life I wasted!!! I has supreme pizza this week. I told myself only 2 slices of a medium, but I over indulged and ate 4 (as I normally would) At 2, I am full. At 4, I am stuffed. Well.... next time I will do better. I had ice cream once. My hubby made me a giant bowl. I actually let some of it go to waste. When I had enough, I set it aside. It was hard. I kept it near me for awhile to make sure I didn't 'really' want anymore...just in case. But I was happy and had enough! I have learned that when I split a meal when i go out and eat, I am full. At Olive Garden, my mom and I split a pasta dish. It doesn't look like much, but I walk away more than full. The pasta, salad, and only one and a half breadsticks. Yea!! I have a lifetime of not knowing my own body to learn. I won't say it is easy. I won't say there are days I haven't binged. But I will say on those days I don't say I will do better tomorrow. I just try and do better at the next meal.

    Congratulation on the 3lbs weight loss, what an awesome accomplishment. I also have days when I say that I am going to have just 2 slices of pizza and before I know it I have had 3-4 while eating the crust off my kids slices. Pizza is just a food that I love and the only way that I don't over indulge is if I order myself something else and then only have 1 slice of pizza. Also what helps me is when the pizza is cut into squares instead of those huge triangles.
