I Didn't Want To But I Did

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

I did it .................It was hard, but I did it.

Since joining SP. I have always posted artwork on my page. I use to tell myself it was because I didn't want my real pictures on the web, but who was I lying to but myself. I had to ask myself, if you still wore a 10 would you have a problem with your pictures on the web and the answer is NOOOOO!!!! I would probably be all over the internet (just kidding - the web can be a dangerous place). I took photos of myself in workout gear early this year and when I downloaded the photos, I cried so badly my daughter called my husband at work because she didn't know what else to do....Today she didn't even want to take the photos. I had to promise her I wasn't going to cry. I almost renigged on my promise. I had to take several deep breathes, but I held back the tears. I love taking headshots and bodyshots when I am dressed up, but the photos I took today are very different breed. Well theres no more lying, no more distorting the truth. Pictures say 1000 words....I actually feel somewhat relieved to post these pictures. I still cringe when I open my page, but I have one of two option -- complain about it or change it. I have got to change it!!!!!

Have a great day!!!!!

    Oy - you hit the nail on the head for me. *sniff*

I'm just not brave enough to take the pictures yet. Plus, if anyone I know comes across my page, they'll see the big bad numbers right there and my pic to verify it. Ick.

Once I lose some, I'll join you and snap the pictures. Until then, you get cookie monster. But that's a close resemblance! LOL

BTW, your art is beautiful!! But your picture is great as well. Someday you'll be glad you have that photo. A big *high-5* for having the courage to post it.

    I love HONESTY!! Very good for the soul... You CAN do this! We all can! I am gaining momentum daily on my journey. Keep up the pace on yours. Thanks for motivating me. I hadn't really acknowledged why I haven't put
'me' up. I love the art work though! :) Be inspired because you are teaching your daughter soooo much by all your choices to be healthy and the perseverance to continue your journey. See you around...

  I'm so proud of you. And your pictures are great. Remember, it's not where you've been or where you are, It's where you're going and what you become that matters. Take care and you can do this just take it one day at a time.

    LYNNAMIN, great for you for being brave. I think most of us can relate, but more importantly, I think posting pics helps us to see where we are and can serve as an incentive to get where we want to be. I'll see you there :~) GTF

Hydro Colon Therapy

Monday, October 29, 2007

Well, I did it.

This weekend I had my first Colonic....For those who are not familiar with this process. A colonic is is an alternative medicine form of body cleansing, sometimes associated with naturopathy. Similar to an enema, it involves the introduction of discrete amounts of purified water. The fluid is released after a short period, and the process will be repeated multiple times during the course of a treatment.

A number of cancers and diseases begin in the colon. When our colons are impacted and our bodies are not eliminating waste properly -- toxins build up. These toxins cause things such as bath breathe, ache, skin rashes, constipation, irretable bowels syndom and worst of all CANCER....

I've decided to take a more holistic approach to weight loss. Not just focusing on the number on the scale or how my clothes fit, but more importantly what going on both inside and outside of my, because whats happening inside is a direct reflection of how I look and feel outside.

Have A Great Day!!!!

    Did you not love it? I had 1 about 2 months ago & I'm going back for 2nd & 3rd sessions (which they recommend). At first I was a little leery & embarrassed but my tech was so totally great, nice & funny & we had a good time (weird I know!). Great job on taking the "holistic" approach!

    (1) How many treatments do you do?
(2) How long does it take for the effects of the colonic to start working?
(3) Would you recommend it?
(4) Is it painful?

I've considered doing this, but I'm such a scaredy cat!

I'm on Cloud Nine, Ten and Eleven!!!!!

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

Okay where do I begin.....

First --- I received about 10 compliments on my weight today. It has to be inches because I have only lost 5lbs. I actually do feel more tight and toned...

Second -- I received two complimentary tickets to the Hawks opening game next week. They're playing the BobCats, wish it was the Mavericks (GO DALLAS) but they were free. This will be date night for me and my hubbie.

But this is the biggest of them all....Monday my girlfriend calls me and tells me she wants to take me to New York for my birthday. All expenses paid (flight, hotel everything)........ She told me just send her an itinerary. I am going on the SOHO shopping tour and then were going to take the Statue of Liberty and Ground Zero tours....
