Day 144: or Day 13,140.. Depends on how you look at it. :)

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Today is my birthday. It's rather weird to be honest. I don't feel 36 at all. Especially since I've been losing this weight and eating healthy and exercising. I still feel.. I don't know, 32 sounds like a good age to me. :)
Last night I went to dinner with some girlfriends to celebrate and had a really nice time. We went to an italian restaurant that had a gluten free menu and was able to make this one dish vegan. It was so nice to go out and not have salad. I also had 2 martinis! Yum! I really kept my afternoon snacking under control knowing I wanted to indulge. I didn't think I would of had that after dinner martini on top of the before dinner martini but it was good! lol! And I did good on my exercise yesterday so I weighed in good today, back down to the weight I was the other day at 159. So anything down from here will be a new low! Yay! Crossing fingers that will be a birthday present for tomorrow. It would be fun to see 158.anything :)
I tell you, if you really want help with control when eating out, not eating gluten or meat or dairy really helps. They had ordered appetizers plus there was this yummy looking bread and dipping sauce, but it was easy now to not have any because I haven't had anything like that in so long, but I could imagine if I had just decided to just go on a diet or something and try and not eat it how hard it would have been. It makes it easier I think when it's just something that is never on "your menu" rather than if it's just something your cutting back on.
So, nothing too special planned for today. My youngest is home sick again, for the 3rd day in a row with fever so we'll just be hanging out. I'm good with that! :) I'm definitely going to get my exercise in and I want to make a big pot of soup. Gotta love a low key day. :)

Day 143: The Best Part of Getting Fat..

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Yes, I said that right! lol! I REALLY think the best part of getting fat is that you really appreciate your body more when you start to get it back. I always thought before I gained all of my weight (back in my skinny days) that my ankles were too big or I wasn't firm enough, or.. I could go on. But NOW that I saw what fat REALLY is, I so much appreciate more my body and shape now that it is returning. Now, that I saw what big ankles really look like, I love my ankles. lol! I'm really loving my body that I used to never be happy with even before I put on so much weight. I almost think every skinny person should be fat just for a day, or a week, just to be able to really appreciate what they have. I know I didn't. I almost appreciate and am thankful for my fat days because of this new revelation. If it wasn't for my fat period and this struggle of regaining my body back, I wouldn't have this renewed outlook, which will hopefully stay with me. I have GOT to find a good before pic to look at any time in the future if I start to complain about my body even after I'm at my goal weight.
I went to the doctor (GYNO- fun, fun) and was thinking about this on the way out. That it was nice to be able to walk tall and proud and not feel like I wish I was a turtle and hide my head in my fat shell. I'm glad that I can look on this whole period of my life now in a positive light instead of the negative one that I was looking at it in. I learned a lot. I now do not look at people who are extremely over weight like I used to. I look at them with understanding and knowledge of how they feel. I am a better person I think for having gone through this time. Maybe we all are.

    So true! I remember when I was thin, I hated my stomach and I would never wear shorts because I hated my knees. Who hates their knees? I wish I could go back and slap 15 year old me in the face and make her realize what she's got. I love my body more now than I did then and I am MUCH heavier.

And congrats on getting in the 150's!! Woo hoo! emoticon

    So true Sara.. I am also glad that I am while I am losing this weight because it is not to impress anyone. It is to make myself feel better about myself. If my husband finds me more attractive, that is even more of a bonus. It is for me, it is for my health, for my strength, and for my overall well-being!

    I was just thinking the same exact thing about my knees this week as they are coming back to light. The old saying goes, "You don't appreciate what you have until it is gone". In our case, we have the opportunity to do so when we get it back! For that - we should CELEBRATE!

One of my girlfriends has had up and down weight struggles like us all; well, she recently had a set-back of 10 pounds, but "EVERY" time I see her at the gym, she goes through the ritual of grabbing and pointing out what has to go... I keep telling her to focus on those things she does like. It's so easy to fall victim to not liking ourselves.

Long story short - we have to stay with our healthy lifestyle, not take things for granted, realize that no matter what the size, NO ONE is perfect - and LOVE OURSELVES!

Day 142: Check Your Wheat Bread!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

For so long I've been hearing, Make sure your wheat bread is 100% whole wheat. So that's what I've been doing (for the kids, I eat gluten free). Well, yesterday I was at Walmart getting bread and a few other things and I was trying to decide which brand. I learned once again why you should always look at labels EVEN on something as innocent as wheat bread. One of the top 2 or 3 ingredients in the 100% Whole Wheat bread was... yep, you guessed it, High Fructose Corn Syrup!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I thought I had been doing so good getting all of that out of the kids diet and here it's been hiding in their bread! I checked a few different ones and it was the same in Walmart brand, Nature's Own (I was surprised by that), and Merita. BUT Merita does have a Smart Wheat that is 100% Whole Wheat but does not have the HFCS in it. I got that one. It's a little more than Walmart but less than some others. Just thought I would share. I had never thought to look before.

I am hopeful that it will change when more people realize how bad it is and stop buying products that have it in them.

    I know I spent some time in the stores checking all the breads and it is sad to say that the majority of them have HFCS. I thnk we need to get together and write petitions to these companies for them to discontinue using the stuff. I'd also like to see some of the sodium removed from many of the products we consume. I just don't think it's necessary. I believe this is part of the weight problem that is affecting more and more people. emoticon

    It is very important to read food labels. I forget what brand it is, but it is 100% ww and there's no HFCS. I wish more companies would be more responsible about ingredients they put in their foods. The obesity rate is ridiculous. I also think if the price of truly healthy foods would come down, more families would be able to provide a healthy diet for their families... Of course there are those who could care less what they put into their bodies or their kids bodies (my family growing up, one reason I got to where I was). I hope my new habits inspire all of my children to do this for themselves and for their families when that time comes (hopefully not anytime soon!).

Day 141: Let's Try This Again..

Monday, May 21, 2012

I swear that time is flying! It always seems like it's Monday again! So, here we go. I need to pep myself up for another week, and hopefully another bit of weight loss. I'm wondering if when maintaining, if it will then be a little more relaxed. Yes, still exercise everyday. Yes, still eat right, but maybe just a little less.. I don't know..life or death determination behind it.
I'm a little nervous with Memorial Day weekend coming up. This is when we start to go up to the mountains a good bit. This is great and scary at the same time. I go up with my parents so I'm not the only one in charge of food. Very scary. Also, now don't laugh, I won't have a computer so I won't have my life line of Sparkpeople to come and pep myself up for the day. To get out negative feelings and fears. To force positive thoughts into there place. I might have to suck it up and use a real journal for a few days. PLUS, I will be giving up my streak! Look at all of these days in a row I've been able to keep this up. I don't want a speed bump to throw me off course and make it a lot easier to keep me off course. I HAVE GOT TO FIND THE STRENGTH to make it through these trips up there without throwing everything I've worked for away. I CAN DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS! I have got to grow a back bone. I have got to be able to say, "No thank you. I do not want to eat that piece of pie, that bowl of ice cream, that milk shake, and greasy fried chicken. I want to eat the way I want to eat AND THAT IS OK. It is ok to be me. I DON'T HAVE TO BE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I DON'T HAVE TO EAT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! It's not the end of the world if I make my own meal if everyone else is eating a way that I don't agree with. I don't have to be forced to eat things I don't agree with. I CAN STAND UP FOR MYSELF!! I CAN DO THIS!!! I AM STRONG! I AM BEAUTIFUL! I AM WORTH IT!!!

Day 140: This Week.. Last Week...

Sunday, May 20, 2012

This week I want to continue to make good decisions. I want to eat right, eat healthy. I want to try a new recipe! SARA72121 has inspired me once again to want to try something new instead of just eating the same old same old all of the time. I want to do a DVD work out at least 4 days and the treadmill at least 5-6 days even if just for 15-30 minutes. I want to do ONE thing that I've been putting off and take it OFF of the procrastination list! My weight loss goal for the week is to lose 1.5 pounds which would bring me to 157.5, well into the 150's!! YAY! I CAN DO THIS!!!

Last Week I am proud of myself for losing weight DURING TOM! Yay! I am proud of myself for doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred 2 days and Coach Nicole's 28 Day Bootcamp 2 days. (I want to try and do that again this week.) I am proud of myself for getting 100 points in the SASS challenge! Yay! I am proud of myself for doing the treadmill on 6 out of 7 days! Yay! I am proud of myself for making another girls night out date for Wednesday!

    Congratulations! Getting into the 150's is amazing! I'm so happy my food journey could inspire you! If you're going to try one recipe the chickpea cutlets is definitely the one to try! It's so delicious and it's chewy, almost like a piece of meat. Just be careful when you're making them. I don't know if I didn't get my chickpea pieces small enough or what but they kept falling out of the dough while I was kneading it. I had to keep pushing them back in. I also think the recipe would be ok with 2 Tbs of olive oil instead of a 1/4 cup if you want to cut some of the fat and calories out.
