Don't leave behind

Thursday, September 04, 2014

I learned one simple thing this week, DON'T LEAVE CALORIES OFF YOUR DIET! I left calories for about 6 days this past week and didn't loose but gained 4 oz, That isn't a lot but it let me know that leaving calories is not a good thing. Your body stores what you don't eat and therefore I didn't loose anything but gained. I have also learned it is better to eat a little more each day than leave calories behind. Believe me, I have learned a hard lesson!


Bonus Spins

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

What has happened to our Bonus Spins? I was in the process of getting mine yesterday when all of a sudden then disappeared and now I can't find them. Did they take them away? Have they hidden them an I just can't find them. I really liked the Bonus Spins.


Getting disappointed

Thursday, July 17, 2014

I am getting disappointed I am not loosing weight. Lost 2 oz. this past week and have been on a 1200 calorie diet for over a year. I don't know if my body is gotten used to my calorie count and I should go up to more calories a day. I am really disappointed that there is not a counselor we can physically talk with. I know talking with people who are going thru what I am going thru will help me, but sometimes you just want to talk with a live person on the phone.

Maybe I should up my calories to 1500 a day and just see what will happen. I am a sedentary person due to chronic illness. Just thinking about exercising make my joints and arms hurt! I know I need to, but the pain can be so severe that I just want to stay on the couch with the heating pad.

Anyone else having this same problem. Maybe we could message one another for support.


Food, food, food

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Tomorrow is God and Country at our church. It is really a nice service followed by pot luck. There is so much food to choose from and so many deserts. I discussed this with my husband and we are forgoing the pot luck for fish at home. I can control the calories I eat and bypass the DESSERT table!

Why do we impose so many deadlines in our lives? We have for getting dinner ready, getting the kids into bed and so forth. Why do we impose on for weight loss?

I have been trying for over a year to loose 12 pounds. Sounds simple doesn't it? Not for me. I have had so many goal dates I just don't set one any more. To me it isn't about the length of time I lose the weight, but what I learn along the way.

I have been down to a loss of 10 pounds only to have surgery and gain it all back. There was nothing I could do about it. My husband couldn't cook for me. The church we go to cooked for 12 days and let me tell you there are some really good cooks at church. I have been trying to loose that 10 pounds ever since.

If It takes me another year to loose the final 6 pounds I will not beat myself up for taking so long. I will dwell on the fact that I am now controlling my portions, weighting and counting my caloric intake. To me that is far more important that the loss of the final .

I will eventually loose the final 6 and feel really good about getting to my goal. I will dwell on the fact that I now know the correct way to eat and feel good about myself.

    Great attitude! Great blog !

I agree with you : I no longer put a timeline on my weight loss goals. For me, setting a date builds pressure, which that tends to make me gain. So I focus on making good choices as often as possible, and trust that my body will do what it needs to do.
