281's Departing.........

Thursday, May 10, 2007

I hope you know that I will not miss you, I am leaving today with no regrets and i am leaving to a happier place, I am currently at 239 and I am not missing you. I think about you from time to time, but I think that you know we weren't on good terms for the way I got to you and now I am not even going to stress because I am going down to a better place. I'm taking that midnight train to Georgia!!!!!

No Excuses!!!

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

Its funny I think back some on my weight of 281 and listening to the Michael Baisden show today prompted me to something I had already thought before. We tend to think that because of our relatives, family, or race that it is just natural for us to be thick. It is so not true. We think that we have to have the bubble butts, and big boobs, or we wont be womanly. I am not saying I want to be a stick thin girl no, I want my curves just as much as the next woman but its time for us to get off that bus of the fat back in the greens, the over sugared cobblers, yams, fried chicken and macaroni and cheese and find other alternatives to help us teach our kids today to be healthier. We owe it to our future, corporate america is thinking that fast food is the way to go, a woman on the radio says she is 5'2 weighs 195, eats out 3 times a day and only have a bowel movement every other day. What is wrong with this picture. She is not picking healthy alternatives to help take care of her body, The sad part is that we cannot save everyone...........................This is not just a struggle within me to get my own weight in check but to help others. Why am I starting to feel this way????

    I can totally relate. It's a woman in my suite that I am trying to get on the band wagon, but she keeps refusing. I'll continue to try though

Day 8!!!

Wednesday, May 09, 2007

I am thankful that this has been a good experience so far, I am glad that its hard and that I am doing fine in the process. I am not missing meat at all, I am glad that I have support here when I need it and that my daughter is as cooperative as she is. I have asked her on a few occasions if she would like some meat and she said no, so that helps me out a lot.

Day 7!!!

Tuesday, May 08, 2007

Woo Hoo...........I am just excited that I am making it through this. I ate salad for dinner, and today so far I have had oatmeal, applesauce, and a yogurt for breakfast. I just ate a salad that included (lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, corn, and light french dressing) . I love salads you can do so much to them to fix them up. I plan on having some stir fry veggies over rice for dinner tonight. I am glad I have done this, its not bad, I am just eating my veggies, I am focused on my goals.

    I absolutely love salads too. I could eat a big bowl of salad with just veg's on it with italien dressing but i'm watching my portion sizes so I eat a little salad instead of a big bowl. Keep up the good work.

    It sounds like you are really enjoying not having meat. Good for you! I haven't had any since the beginning of February, and I'm never tempted when others are eating it. Keep up the good work!

Day 6 is Here!!!

Monday, May 07, 2007

Okay today is day 6. I am still hanging in there, thinking of doing this more often, I don't feel like I am missing anything. I have actually opened up my meatless options, I am doing pretty good. I have been thinking about a few things this week that I keep noticing that keep coming up things that test my will power or the will power of others.

Fast solutions are not always the best solutions...........quick and easy fix are not something I want to take a part in to lose my weight. I really want this to last forever, I don't want my body to think that it needs the help of something else in order to lose weight. I am using this site to help educate me in the natural process of weight loss; food, exercise and attitude. These are my 3 biggest factors I am focusing on because I want this to last forever.
