Its been a while...

Wednesday, September 02, 2009

Soooo.... Its been a while since I have logged in and really been consistant with my workouts and everything. Somehow, I've managed to still lose a little weight. I am thankful for that because I don't think I could handle gaining weight right now. Anywho.... I am trying to get back on track, but it seems as if I have no time, and when I do I don't feel like doing anything! So we will see what happens within the next few weeks.... emoticon

Fluffy Friends 4 Life!???!!!

Monday, April 06, 2009

emoticon... emoticon... Ok, so this is the thing. I know that fluffly friends are in this weight loss thing 2gether, but ur never actually supposed to lose weight apart from each other.... right? I am so torn in regards to my feelings right now. I haven't seen one of my friends in a little over a year now, and just the other day she found me online. I saw some of her pictures and was BLOWN AWAY! She has lost SOOO much weight and looks so good. Instead of my 1st reaction being happy for her... I was bitter... REALLY bitter emoticon I just kept thinking... "why can't I be that motivated? I thought we were in this chubby girl life together" I almost feel abandoned... left behind. I want all my fluffy friends to be chubby w/ me until further notice!!! Selfish... I know, but I feel as if I am being left behind and I am slowly losing those that I can relate to....

    Hey, we all feel bitter sometimes. I think we have to be happy with who we are now to help us get where we want to be. You are beautiful, and seem to have a great personality, so don't be to hard on yourself. You can do this, and remember your friend has been there. If she is a good friend she will be there to give you alot of support and be there to help you through your journey. Also I have learned if you lose weight slow you will maintain it better. Please be positive and now it takes time . I'm here if you need any support. emoticon

Ah!!! I feel so defeated right now. I am back in the place that I promised myself I wouldn't be... at least not as quickly as I am. I expect to feel defeated when I reach a plateau or have made a little more progress. I haven't REALLY worked out in only God knows how long, I haven't been watching what I eat, and I have told myself all of this time that I didn't care... And where does that lead me today?....

To feeling defeated. I want to go to the gym and have an amazing workout, followed by a day of eating right and not being lazy. However, it has been soooo hard for me to get back on track. I am eating a little better now that I am past the birthday dinners and treats to sweets..... I almost feel as if its a loss for me to even try. I know.. I know.. I need to persevere and just stay hopeful... its just hard. When you feel like "blah", you don't want to do anything but walk in the ways of "blah".... does that make sense?.... Anywho, I'm rambling on. .... All this to say that I hope that this feeling of defeat will pass soon!

    Hon, you are AWARE and that is so important. Mindless eating can add so many pounds to us. Just being AWARE of what we are doing matters so much.
I was just reading an article this morning about Michele Obama and how she gets up at 4;30am t o work out and do the treadmill, etc. Just think of all that fancy food she has to turn down every day! She said that people on the campaign trail were always giving her FOOD. emoticon Just makes me realize that when other people can do this, so can we.

Biggest Loser & So on & So on....

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Sooo This was a good day as far as food and exercise goes. It was so ironic because just as I was feeling as if my struggle was so different from others, I was shown that it is completely the opposite. I had class tonight, and it is a group counseling class. We spoke about our concepts of wellness and surprisingly, almost every one of my classmates has had a struggle with weight.... even the thin ones. I felt more connected to them because I saw that they had the same issues with food and the same struggles with working out as I do. Some of them have lost over 100lbs and are working hard to maintain their weight loss. Their stories motivate me to strive for the "skinny" me. I've been overweight my ENTIRE life... for as long as I can remember and so it is very hard for me to strive for something I can't even imagine. Does that make sense?.... Anywho, as a result to our group session, about 7 of us decided to have our own Biggest Loser. At the end of our summer courses, we will weigh in and see who lost the most % of their starting weight. This should be good because we will hold one another accountable and will have that competitive edge to help push us along. I'm excited. YaY! I'll be sure to update on how this whole thing works out.

Brand New

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

So I'm new to this thing. I don't quite know what to expect, but I figure that this will help me stay accountable and get some of the support that I truly need. I officially joined a gym today and hopefully I have enough motivation to make it there tomorrow. I am looking forward to it all, but am scared at the same time.... Is that weird? I don't know.. I don't know what I am scared of and that is what makes it so weird anf difficult for me... Anywho *brushes shoulders off* It's a new day, a new fight and I'm on my way to a brand new me... emoticon

    I'm sure you are scared of failing. We all have tried to lose pounds and it is difficult. Look at this as loving yourself and learning to make good choices, where food and exercise is concerned. Yesterday I went with my son to the hospital to get his shoulder x-rayed from a JUDO injury on Saturday. I told him "Park at the back of the lot, as I need to walk." We didn't drive around the huge lot for five minutes looking for the nearest spot. We parked and walked in and by the time we got there, I laughed and thought, we'd probably be LOOKING still, if I didn't have SP.
