Taking Control

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

My last few blogs have been kind of depressing. I am so happy to have had a change of attitude! I have had an epiphany I wish to share with you. I am an adult. I know I can control myself; sometimes I choose not to. I know certain choices put my health at risk, but accepting it as my choice is so freeing. Even though it's a choice with negative benefits, I don't feel like a victim, and it's easier to not dwell on it. I feel like a million bucks! I have to hand it to Sparkpeople; they are helping me do amazing things. Be nice to yourselves today!

Try, try again

Monday, November 26, 2012

Well, I did not do very well at all this Thanksgiving. I overate by hundreds of calories. I was asked to make the pies, and we brought home lots of leftovers, which I haven't been able to resist. I still feel sick today! I don't understand why this happens; in my head, I know that eating is no way to combat boredom or emotions, yet I cave and eat anyway. All I can do is keep trying.

    I do my best not to bring home very many left overs. It really helps.

Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

I am so excited for Thanksgiving! I let myself down my overindulging at Halloween; but I have a plan in place to enjoy tomorrow without overindulging. In just the past month, I have become more reliant on how I feel physically in this weight loss journey. It is nice to be free from the scale. I do still use because I talk about weight loss with people a lot, and it's easier to share weight than inches. Anyway. I am so in love with Sparkpeople! It's molded me from a diet/scale freak to a relaxed, normal person, who is just trying to be HEALTHY, not necessarily skinny. Good luck to me, and good luck to you, my fellow sparkers!

Cravings

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Well, I just thought I'd post my thoughts. Kind of a general overview so I can organize my thoughts. I have been very successful with my team, Living Binge Free. I have a lot more control over my cravings. I may not be perfect yet, but I am moving in that direction; isn't that all we really need? We just need to move in the right direction, baby step by baby step.

Starting New

Friday, September 28, 2012

I am grateful for this year that I've spent in VA. I have met a lot of great people, and had some great experiences. We will be moving, and I am so excited to experience new things! I am trying to be more open to newness, after all, I spent my entire childhood living in one house, hanging out with the same group of people. I find newness so exhilarating! Wish me luck!

    yay for you. Moving is always fun. I tend to be in the same house for 15 yrs and by that time ready for a change. Within the next 5 yrs I may be in Delaware, Virginia, Carolina's....looking for a small house within walking distance to a lake or beach.

    it can be such a kick starting over and re-inventing yourself - you can get to know a lot about yourself in the process - good luck!! emoticon
