Horrible day----

Friday, April 05, 2013

I had such a horrible day......... emotionally my body is drained. I even hit McDs today which I never do I am up 6-7 lbs and frustrated with my back issues and the fact I can only walk for exercise any more. Then you have a man giving you pills to loose weight and saying who cares about the side effects if it works UGHHHHH

I started this journey because I wanted to grow old and be able to move still with my arthritis and health issues-- yes losing weight is a plus because I am so short but very hard when I am limited to just walking, no weights etc.

I will try to start over again and see where I get.
Pick myself dust myself off
Also my fiance and I broke up -- just really bad bad day!!

    First I apologize for seeing this a few days late. I know how awful those days are.
second .... You and I have about the same weight to lose, which isn't a whole lot. So why take the weight loss pills?
Exercise ..... last year I lost 10 pounds by walking and riding my exercise bike and my diet. I don't lift weights, I don't do crazy dvds, or running, or dancing ..... just walking and riding my exercise bike. I could have lost more but .... I got sick and could not kick the fatigue for awhile.
Oh and just for the record .... I gained back those 10 pounds I lost during the holidays that has spread over to Easter. So I understand your frustration with that. But you lost the weight before and you will lose it again. (so will I.) I've heard it said many, many times that walking is the best form of exercise. That it is the most nature, so it's easier for the body to handle. And weight loss isn't about how many push up you can do. It's about burning more calories than you take in. That's all. So it really doesn't matter how you burn those calories.

I can't imagine how hurt you are after your break up. I have no wonderful words of encouragement. ........... I hope that you find your happiness again soon. emoticon

    That does sound like a pretty awful day. I'm so sorry. I hope that things pick up on soon. At least as we grow older we learn that these dark times can't last forever. I hope you have success and joy on the horizon. Take care of yourself.

What is your why??

Sunday, November 18, 2012

What's your why.......................??

Why are you here? What was your goal? Have you achieved it yet?

Jillian Michaels says “If you have a why,, you can tolerate any HOW”-- I truly believe this.

My why is a healthier life, weight loss and to help my arthritis. I never dreamt that I could lose 15 lbs and 15 inches, I never believed that I could run again or endure Jillian Michaels workouts but I can.

For every journey we need a why, it has taken me over 40 years to see my “why's” and “how's” I am grateful for the journey that I am still on.............. the rest of my weight loss may take another year but I am here to stand by my statements and back up my why's so I may encourage others (SPARK THEM) weather it be in weight loss, new living, moving on after abuse, loving your children, your spouse, your friends, your mom................

My whys shall bring me through the next 40 years how about yours??

    My why would be to stay healthy and independent in my old age. I need to just keep that in my mind and I will get there! emoticon
