I will win this battle!!!!

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

I have been struggling with my weight since I was 13 years old and if I knew then what I knew now, I would not be fighting this war with my body. Growing up as a child of divorced parents, I spent most of my time alone listening to music, watching television or out riding my bike. Then as I entered my pre-teen years, I found myself turning to food more and more, especially when I got angry or upset with my mother, brother or someone else. I would sneak food into my bedroom, eat as much as I could when no one was home, I felt guilty about it later but I continued on eating. I was a wallflower whom everyone ignored, no matter how much I tried, I could never fit in, not even with my own family. Now that I have two kids of my own, I want to be around for them as much and as long as possible. I have started eating right, walking everyday, even though I know just walking isn't enough to get in the shape I want to be. I will never give up on myself and I will win this battle!!!! Thank you for reading and God bless!!!!

    Of course you will win Misty................
I am so happy for you that your back on the healthy band wagon.
I've done pretty good this summer. Not perfect mind you but I've learned to be nicer to myself and THAT my friend took a long time. It occured to me that I would never think such poor thoughts of a friend had they fell off the health band wagon and felt badly for it. But I would think poorly of myself and that is wrong. I decided to be my own best friend especially during this time. It's like I have wasted 49 years of my life. Why was I so terribly hard on myself? I don't know. As long as I've changed I guess it doesn't matter.
I'm super proud of you.

Why can't I lose weight?

Thursday, April 19, 2012

I am changing my eating habits, drinking 64 oz. of water everyday, eating more fruits and vegetables, trying to exercise more when I am able. Why am I not losing weight? I have had my thyroid checked and it is healthy. I am eating smaller portions and trying to limit late night snacking. I don't see what more I can do.....

    Are you tracking your foods? If so, make sure you're measuring correctly. I was surprised when I started measuring things how OFF I was.

And "YES", your body needs time. I exercised and ate well for 2 months before that scale started moving. I confess I was disgusted with it, BUT I knew I was doing right and I knew I was feeling better. So hang in there.

You can do this, and you are so worth it.

My first blog ever

Sunday, March 25, 2012

This is the first blog ever so bear with me. I am at my wits end and no longer know how to deal with the pain I feel in my body nearly everyday. I work at Wal Mart as a cashier and am on my feet nearly 7 to 8 hours a day, please know that an average work week for me is 30 hours a week and by the end of each work day I can barely stand on my feet let alone exercise due to my legs and feet hurting so bad. I am writing this blog in hopes that there is one or more persons who can help me find ways to deal with this problem. There is so much I want to do outdoors but my feet keep me from enjoying my life the way I want too. Any and all advice will be so very much appreciated. Thank you and God bless.
