Ready to make a difference

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I am already working out really hard on my cardio. I am also working hard on portions and monitoring EVERY bite...also drinking the water. I still falter but I know once I get in the zone with the food control I have it made!

    Good luck to you this round! I know I have the same struggle..I have no problem working out but it's the food that is out of control! I have a plan in place to get that beast under control this round too! You can do this! Once you get the food intake under control it will all be ok!

Here I am again...even tho I think this might have been more for the newbies. I decided to do it too. Sickness...depression. All of these. I have been fighting with lyme disease, COPD.. sleep apnea...and a few other things as well as stress. I also have panic disorder. SO when things get to me (daily) I feel like I am miserable, alone and most likely dying...and that food might as well be my comfort. I am still having tests done and know that mentally..I need to lose weight to better some of the conditions I already have. But it seems like so much on me at once. I struggle thru and do well for a while then a new health issue hits and knocks me for a loop. I am sure others whom I am aquainted with on the teams already know this. Thats my blog in a nutshell. The things that hold me back are clear to me. Making them go away not so sure.


C-Change the unhealthy habit I wish to . Nighttime eating. By days end my stress is crazy and as I begin to unwind and I have to take something to help me sleep by the time it relaxes me more...I begin to want to eat everything. I want to instead drink a glass of water and think of something else to do until I am able to sleep. I think I will make it a stretch time. I do not have a dedicated diet buddy or anything or I would say thats the time I would call on them to strengthen me. That is not to say I wont be supportive and considerate of them, I do not need someone just for myself...but someone who needs me to with a likeminded be there for each other, I have 0 support at home.

    I was mainly thinking of someone who didnt mind sending a few motivational texts and checking in via txt messages. It just seems to help me. I had a few before but they are now off the wagon. I dont want to invade anyones privacy with phone calls. But i did so well a while back when i had a txt buddy we checked each others calories for the day after dinner and pushed each other to get off our butt. We only sent a few a day but it kept me accountable.

    You have just said some of the things I go through to the "T"!! I get the munchies so bad, it's a joke! I have been finding some things that work for me...carrot sticks, celery, herb teas, but to take my meds and get into bed and stay there!! I am willing to talk on the phone, we have a bit of of time difference, but if reaching out helps, and gives you the support you need, by all means lets talk! We can message each others phone #'s. Thanks for your blog, you are very inspiring! Jill

    I'm here! I'm not good on the phone but if you have AIM I could talk to you via Instant Messenger. Send me a spark mail if you're interested.

I have problems with nighttime eating, too. It's gotten better since I've made a rule that I only eat at the table. Then even if I'm having a snack it's at the table instead of in front of the tv or the computer. It keeps me mindful of what I'm eating, and has helped me a LOT.

We have a lot in common, though I won't go into it all here. Just shoot me a message if you want.

Once got to me

Monday, August 02, 2010

I was under 350..solidly! 345. A couple of months ago. Pain hit...was diagnosed with pneumonia. Then lyme disease...lost a brother. Still undergoing tests. Gained again...back to 365. So discouraged. But I am here.

    I am so sorry to hear about your brother and on top of that your illnesses. I know it can get discouraging but keep a positive attitude and I know you can get back on track.

    Life does that but you have to realize how important you are, you are more than your weight. Keep plugging away, I've been down that path countless times it took a scare to realize that I had to change the way I lived my life. I'm down 94 lbs in 2+ year and excited about life. emoticon emoticon

Not gonna try...

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

To explain what all happened this time. Sickness on top of sickness...let me just say that. As with every time I am blazing along with my next big milestone goal seeming just in reach, something knocks me on my ass. I was working out harder than I had since my 20's and was losing steadily...two months ago.

Lots of pain , depression and fear later... I am back up ten LBS. or so and dont know where I am going from here but know where I long to be. So...I come back here, ashamed of myself once again but knowing I tried my hardest. Knowing I was doing all I knew to do to move in the right direction and something out of my control hit...still being tested not sure what all is wrong but going to try to work again. One day at a time. Maybe slower this time. But hopefully in the right direction at least. Please send positive energy, prayers....whatever you believe in..I can use some !

    Glad you're back. You're in my prayers. I hope you get to the bottom of what is wrong, and that it is nothing serious.

    Will definitely send positive thoughts your way. I hope your testing all comes back okay or that at least the sickness is nothing serious.

So glad you found your way back. Don't get discouraged. You have shown that you know what to do to reach your goals. Once you take care of you, then you will be ready to "hit" it really hard and see all those results on the scale that you desire!

    Don't be ashamed of yourself. Life happens, and sometimes losing weight has to take a backseat. That's just the way things go. No one's perfect, and the important things are 1) You SURVIVED what life threw at you, and 2) You're back here ready to focus on yourself and your health again. Both are definitely things of which to be proud, so send yourself some positive energy, too! :-) Welcome back, and good luck!
