Hello everyone!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

I'm thirty, now! Thanks so much for the Birthday wishes! I haven't written a blog, in a long time! Well, I'm traveling to Nigeria, on the 15th of July and I'll be back on the 8th of August. Be well.

Okie

Defining Doctor's Visit!

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Well, I just got back, from the Doctor's. I weighed in at 315lbs. That is way too much! I see the doctor on 7/3/2013, so we'll see what the scale says.

My highest weight (ever) was 330lbs. I am never gonna weigh that much, again. I am dead serious about this! I don't ever want to be that close to 400lbs again!

I owe it to myself, to do the best for my body. I am ready, for this challenge. I accept it, willingly, as there's no other alternative.

Okie

    I have always said I was going to lose weight, diet, work out but until I had a moment when I realized that I can't let it go on like this any longer did I finally commit! I think you for sure had that moment! I wish you luck girl! Anything you need, we are all here to help!

    That is why I found SparkPeople. I was tired of my doctor complaining and I didn't want to weigh more than the previous visit. I determined to lose 10 pounds by my next. That was last year, a year later I have lost 100 pounds and feel so much better! My doctor is thrilled and is dumbfounded at every visit! Some times you just have to draw a line and say no higher than here! Originally it was only 10, I continued because of the motivation and support I found here! You are on the right track, keep up your hard work and your doctor can't complain. Best of all you will feel so much better and have so much more energy!

Weekend Warblings!

Monday, June 17, 2013

I had a nice weekend. I gave my Dad, a watch and a card. He was very appreciative. I offered to pay for Brunch, but being a gentleman, he declined my offer. I have a Doctor's appointment on Wednesday, so I'll blog about it, on Wednesday or Thursday.

Thanks for your "warblings". It was the first thing I check out when I signed in here!

Naysayers are not welcome!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Hello everyone! I'm mad at my parents, right now. We've never had that good of a relationship, but it is what it is. My mother and father disapprove of the South Beach Diet Lifestyle. They don't agree, with it, because it says to eat six times a day. They think that's too much. I would be cool with that, if it wasn't for the fact, that I've done this diet before and they saw me lose weight on it. I don't know what the big deal is, as I agreed to give $100 to my Mom, for staying in her home. So what's the big deal, about me eating six times a day. It's not like, I'm eating for nothing. I bought food for the house, this past month. Guess what happened, my lips barely touched half of the stuff. Of course, it's because most of it wasn't healthy, but still.

I will eventually have to get a place, of my own. I am not up to defending my eating habits, on a constant basis. Thanks for listening.

Okie

    Parents have a hard time recognizing that their children have grown. At this point you have the right to decide what goes into your body, and when.

I'm struggling with this issue from the other side, as my 22 yo son is living with me, and paying for the space he occupies, and for his own food. I try so hard, but sometimes I still slip up and find myself trying to dictate to him how he should live, and what he should eat. It is none of my business and I know it, but he is my son and I love him.

I hope the 3 of you find balance.

    You might show them the book. South Beach was developed by a cardiologist and is recognized as one of the healthiest diets.

Good nutrition is important. . . . . . . maybe get your own shelf in the refrigerator and stay out of home stuff and do your thing! I don't use the word "diet" I like the SparkPeople Nutrition Tracker. That might give you some help to stay on your 6 meals, and as you say give you a good response their negative responses!
Keep SPARKING!

Slacker Sunday

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Hello, Sparkpeeps! I had a good day, yesterday. It would have been better, had I gotten all of my security deposit back! I left that apartment cleaner, than I found it! I got 120 dollars out of 300 deducted from me. I guess I gotta be happy, that I got money. I plan to use the money to do my hair, and take my Pops out to dinner, next Sunday.

I am on Day 9, of Phase 2! I will start adding back one more fruit, on the 15th of June. I am proud of myself, for sticking with the plan. I have things, that I need to work on. I haven't been exercising, because I just don't feel like it!

    One day at a time, girlfriend! In the diet, oops!, I mean healthy lifestyle, it's sometimes just one minute at a time! Don't discount your everyday movement as exercise. If you just walk in place for the time length of the commercials in just one 1-hr TV show, you are getting in 10 minutes a day!

    Every little bit helps! I am glad that you were able to get some of your deposit back. And it's great that you are working your plan! Keep up the good work! emoticon

    You are doing amazing on the diet, GF. I am really impressed. I don't feel like exercising either or really like eating.

It seems like landlords these day always keep part of the security deposit. Some are charging for things that are not allowed to like painting the apartment and every day wear on carpets. I watch court T.v. a lot and the judges don't let them get away with it.
