Back at home

Monday, April 13, 2009

We're back in Lahti now and I should get back to my normal eating routines as well. I had so much chocolate yesterday and I've already had a lot today too. IT'S EVERYWHERE! Easter is like that, I guess. But it's so hard to stop eating once you start. BUT I HAVE STOPPED NOW and everything will be okay again. I'm getting back to my healthy diet again.

Other than that, I had a lovely time at home. My sister seems to be doing a lot better already. She ate almost normally all the time I was there which made me so incredibly happy! Hopefully she'll leave those eating issues behind once and for all.

I've done nothing special today - yet. Tommi and I were planning to go to the movies later this evening but we'll see. I'd love to do something special to enjoy the day off - tomorrow it's back to the normal daily routines again.

I'll update later. There's something I need to get off my chest but I don't have the time to write about that now.

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE! I hope you had a wonderful Easter!!

    I'm happy your sister seems to be doing well, let's hope she keeps it up. But it sounds like you didn't do too bad yesterday, so congrats!

    Girl you think you did badly yesterday??? Just check out MY food log from yesterday. I had a whopping amount of calories for my lunch yesterday. Hubby & I went to this wonderful BBQ place called Boomerz and I had almost half a rack of ribs, pulled pork, salad with ranch, baked beans, and then we split a dessert called a gooey bar that had ice cream on top!!! OH & forgot to log the big piece of cornbread & butter I had with it.

But oh was Easter. Glad the sister is doing better. I wondered about her several times this weekend & said a silent prayer for her...also said a prayer for her in church yesterday.

OK...more spark stuff to do so later gater!

Weigh-in day!

Saturday, April 11, 2009

Since we don't have a scale at the flat, I usually only get to weigh myself here at my parents. I was really nervous to step on that scale today because it had been such a long time since I last weighed myself and I fell off the wagon somewhere along the way. I had mentally prepared for some weight gain so I was really surprised to see that I hadn't gained ANY weight since the last time I was here! I'm still solidly at 154 pounds!! Granted, I haven't lost any weight either - BUT I DON'T EVEN MIND! I'm so happy I haven't gained a pound!!!!

This gives me hope. This time last year I weighed 190 pounds. Now I weigh 154. I've lost almost 40 pounds already! That's A LOT! I forget to give myself credit for that. I only have 24 pounds to lose and I know I will shed those extra pounds and meet all my goals before I know it. I feel so happy and hopeful right now! I CAN DO THIS.

Today's been a great day so far. Amanda (my sister), Tommi and I went shopping and had some coffee earlier today. We had such a great time - I couldn't stop laughing! I'm so thankful for my amazing sister and boyfriend. They mean the world to me. Speaking of my sister, I think she's doing a little better already. She had a milkshake and half a cookie today and she's just having lunch. She's been herself this weekend. I know she still struggles constantly to eat normally and it's not easy - but for the first time in months it really seems like she's trying!

Thank you all for encouraging me to come here this weekend. I think my presence has made things clearer for her and she's cheered up a lot!

That's me feeling happy and relieved that I hadn't gained any weight!! :)

    That's so great! Congrats on maintaining, and now that you're back on track I'm sure the rest of your weight will be off in no time!

At my parents' house

Friday, April 10, 2009

We arrived here this afternoon and I'm really glad I came. I missed my sister and she apparently missed me a lot too. It's always so good to see her! I don't know what the deal is with her eating issues since I haven't been here that long yet but seems to me that it hasn't gotten any better. I hope I can be a good role model to her and get her to eat normally again. I would love nothing more!

We have no special plans for tonight: we'll just stay at home and watch some movie. I bought some lowfat candy (Friday has always been the one special day of the week when I can have my guilt-free fix of my favorite treats! But, of course, in moderation). I might go a little over my calorie limit today but I'll stay well below 2000 calories so I won't gain any weight. But I won't be losing either... I have to be careful though! I don't want to lose my grip this time!

I'll eat really healthy tomorrow and I'll also work out. But today I'll focus on spending time with my sister and enjoying a good movie in great company.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!!

    I will say a prayer tonite that...and actually now...since we are in different time zones...that tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday, you are able to break through her shell & convince her to take care of herself. Of course this could be tricky, since she made the comment she would just as soon as die...didn't you say that once? Anyway, I pray that God gives you the strength & knowledge of what to say or not say & that other people will come to your defense & join forces with you to help her.

Have a great Easter, ladybug!!! emoticon emoticon

    It is so wonderful that you can spend time with your sister and family. You made the right decision to go and maybe your healthy eating habits will impress her that her eating issues are very dangerous to her health. Be persuasive but not pushy. She needs a good role maodel and you can be that for her emoticon

Today's outfit

Thursday, April 09, 2009

Here's what I was wearing today:

I had a great day today! Confessions of a Shopaholic WAS ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS! So funny! I loved the character of Rebecca Bloomwood and could definitely identify with her! If you haven't seen it yet then you absolutely should! Marley & Me was great too. Very touching!

I had some popcorn and nonfat candy at the movies. I had healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner but went a little over my calories for today. I didn't go over any other nutritional goals though, which I'm really happy for. I had about 1700 calories today (I shouldn't go over 1500 calories) which isn't that bad - could've been better but it's okay, I made my decisions and I stand by them. I'll make up for it tomorrow!

The main thing is that I had a lovely day with my friend and my darling, I saw two good movies, had some popcorn, worked out and I'm really happy right now.

I'm off to bed now. Have a wonderful day!

Thank God it's Thursday!

Thursday, April 09, 2009

I'm off to school in a minute but I thought I'd update before I go. I'm so ready for the Easter holiday! Today's the last day of school and I couldn't be happier. I need a break so badly, I'm all stressed out and falling behind in millions of assignments I should've handed in ages ago. Now I'll hopefully have time to get all those things done. What a relief that would be!

I have a great day ahead of me! First, I have classes from 10 am till 2 pm and after that, I'm going to the movies with a friend (Confessions of a Shopaholic) and almost right after that I'm meeting Tommi for another movie (Marley and Me). Haha! So, there'll be a lot of sitting and maybe just a liiitlle popcorn involved. But I don't want to overindulge! I'm off to such a great start! (Although I went over my nutritional goal for fat yesterday... I feel a bit bad about that. But now I know better - I'll stay away from beef from now on!)

Okay, I guess I'll be going now. Have a wonderful day everyone!

That's me saying BYE BYE!

    I hope you enjoy your movies...I'm dying to see Marley & Me. My best friend saw Confessions of a Shopaholic AND Marley & Me & she said they were both great! Good you are taking the friend (girl I assume) to Shopaholic. That's prolly more a chick flick film & not sure if your boyfriend would like it or not. I am dying to see them both though. She said I will really enjoy Marley & Me. Don't tell me how they turn out....just enjoy!!!
