Well I have gained everything I lost and then some.

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Wow, I weighed myself yesterday and I was weighing 221.5. That's 2 pounds more than when I started SP last year. Ugh! I can't say I'm surprised but I can say I'm disgusted. I stopped going to the pool, before it got too cold to go. Over the holidays I lost all control of my eating. Also, I noticed it all started when I stopped logging in my food. Why, or why did I stop doing that? So I could eat whatever I wanted and not have to show anyone how poorly I was doing. My diabetes was out of control also.

So, there you have it. My confession to myself and to all of you. I will post a new picture during the week and start logging in again. It usually takes me a week to really get on the ball but I will log my food regardless.


BTW ... my diabetes has been under control again. So, I guess I have started eating right, at least for that.

    Thanks for adding me as a FRIEND. I'm here for support. Do read my last blog, as I'm dealing with my son, but hopefully all will go well.
I'm happy to see you have only gained 2# in the past year. SP has had to help you with that. I've added 15# back since Nov. 1st, so I sat down today and made some new goals, and told myself I GOT to get back on track and not let this stress get to me. I realize that I've been having a lot worry over it, more than I was admitting to myself, and EATING isn't an answer, but being HONEST sure is.

I've Been MIA

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Hi all, sorry I've been MIA so long, I've been out of sorts. I also went to prison to bring the inmates an Emmaus retreat. There were 16 of us from our church. the weekend went great! The Holy Spirit was front and center.

Confession time: I haven't been watching my food, haven't been drinking much water, and haven't been exercising. So pretty much program has been in the potty ... BUT ... somehow I managed to only gain 1/2 a pound. I think that's pretty good. I'll pat myself on the back for that because it means that even though I didn't think I was paying attention, I actually was, subconsciously.

Well, just wanted to confess and let you know that I am getting back on track.

Blessings to all.

Hi, I'm Just Here

Saturday, April 26, 2008

emoticon Today is my first day back in a week or so. I'm not in a good place but trying hard to get back with it by Monday. I'm not sure what's up with me. I'm sad, bored, and fighting eating because of it. So far, so good. I haven't been on the scale in over a week either.

I was supposed to go to a Red Hat function today but I needed the money for other things so I didn't go. I guess that's one of the reasons I'm bummed out today.

I do suffer from PTSD and I have my ups and downs but I haven't felt like this in a while and I'm not used to it.

My plan is to be quiet today. Go to church tomorrow and maybe go visit my daughter.

Monday I plan to go to Bally to swim ... Tuesday and Friday also. I have to make some doctors appointments on Monday also for both me and my husband. I hope someone holds me accountable to keep my plan.

I haven't been feeling well, pain wise, all week so I'm sure that is adding to my mood. I also missed going to Mass on Friday. I try to go daily because it lifts my spirit.

Well, I hope I haven't bummed anyone out. I'll be okay. I just had to share how I've been feeling, and sit on this pity pot just a little longer before I wipe myself off and get with it again.

Thanks for reading.

Many blessings, Yvonne


I Finally Broke the 213 Yo-yoing

Monday, March 24, 2008

First and foremost, Happy Easter everyone! Christ IS Risen!

For 4 years, I have been trying to break 213#. I would get down to 213/212/211 then would go right back up to 216 or higher.

With SparkPeople and all the motivation from this site and my teams, I have been below 213 for 2+ weeks. That is a record!!

Like I've said before, I'm losing slowly but that is my goal, 1# more or less, a week. I am happy with any loss, even a 1/4#.

This is very different for me. I have always wanted to lose quickly and a lot of weight in a week. I don't know if it's my age, my new reason for losing weight (to get healthy rather than for appearances) or a combination. But, I have set my goal at a reasonable weight (150) rather than an unreasonable 115.

I have come to terms with myself that it is more important to be healthy than to try and look like I did at 25.

So, thank you all for your support and encouragement ... even those of you that don't know you have encouraged me, through your SparkPages.

Blessings to you all and remember, WE CAN DO THIS TOGETHER and WITH AND THROUGH GOD!!

    Congratulations! I understand how you feel. I can be happy even if my weight loss is slow. I am so pleased with the increase in my strength and the change in my eating habits, that my exercise and eating habits will not change even if the weight loss is slow. I don't need to see a change on the scales to keep doing what I am doing - though of course we know how happy we are when we see the changes.

Every day I am so grateful for such small graces. I can't believe the blessings in my life. I think this is so important for people to pay attention to. I thank God when I can get out of bed in the morning!
