Finally, photographic evidence!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Last time I wrote I said I'd been avoiding cameras. Well, all of a sudden I have a few recent photos of myself so I thought I'd share!

First, my brother took the photo below yesterday at Weetamoo Woods in RI where we went hiking and came across some very friendly horses. :)

I am 5'6" (or 5'5" and a half-ish) and was 174lbs yesterday, so that puts me deep into the overweight range. So, I was actually pleased that I don't look, in my opinion, THAT big. I mean obviously I see much, much room for improvement, but I don't think I look....fat. Just a little wider than before. I was worried I'd look much, much bigger actually, because I haven't weighed this much in a long time...not since 2004 or 2005...and back then I think I looked much bigger (there are a few photos of what I looked like back then on my gallery). OK, I was actually even heavier in some of those photos, but I think I looked MUCH bigger. And I was a little worried I'd be looking like that again. But I really do think that I have much less fat now than I did in 2004 (though still way too much), and a lot more muscle. Go strength training. However, if I want any of this muscle to actually show, or to look less wide, I really need to lose weight. At least, like, 20lbs.
Oh, and by the way, my legs look weird because I was wearing capri-length pants rolled way up on my legs. It was just me and my brother, so I wasn't trying to impress anyone, haha. :)

And here is a photo from Friday night...I like how I look, but my hubby looks drunk...because he WAS a little drunk...hehe. Please don't judge! He wasn't the one who wanted a photo taken in the first place, and he certainly wouldn't have shared it. :) I'm sharing it because my hair isn't crazy in it. :) This one really says nothing about my weight, but I thought I'd share anyway.

    Don't you just love it when you can hang out with family -- or friends who are like family -- and just be yourself without trying to impress anyone? I think you look happy and healthy. Push on to your goals!

I get the same way- WIDER... and even though somewhere I do have some muscle, my fat covers it as well :-) and I think I weigh about 174 as well. And.. for once in my life, I have pics where I don't think I look huge in either. Just saying... I can totally relate to what you are saying.

It just goes to show that every person's body is built differently and that freakin' BMI index is not the be all and the end all. You're a beautiful woman.

The End of Overeating

Thursday, August 09, 2012

I've been reading _The End of Overeating_, and so far I've been disappointed. The first several sections of the book were about the tricks that food processing companies use to get you to eat more - using a combination that is difficult to resist of sugar, fat, and salt, and sometimes chemicals that mimic all kinds of flavors. When I was reading these chapters all I wanted to do was eat more sugar, fat and salt! Counterproductive. Now I've finally reached the behavior modification section of the book in the back, and I'm not done yet, but it's been really nonspecific. It says that you need to develop rules for yourself that govern your eating, such as "I don't eat French fries," or "I don't eat dessert." I don't see how rules like that will help me stop overeating. Maybe the last bit of the book will be more helpful, but I'm not optomistic.

I've been finding it extremely difficult to motivate myself to count calories or restrict my eating at all. Even after my last blog with a few specific rules I didn't follow through. I've gone out and bought size 12 summer pants because my 10s don't fit. I'm hoping that maybe writing about it will get me moving again.

As always, I HAVE been pretty good about exercise lately, espeically my strength training. I haven't been to Body Pump in a long time...I've been out in the strength room with the big burly guys. I realized recently that I squat more than my own bodyweight...185lbs. I'm moving up with almost all my weights except for biceps and shoulders, which are my two weakest areas where I seem to always plateau at the lowest of weights. I'm not as consistent with cardio as I should be in order to lose weight, but I have been getting some cardio in.

In some ways I've been too complacent about my weight. I think it would probably take a photo (but I've been avoiding cameras whenever possible) or some horrible mirror angle to snap me into reality and make me realize I need to do something. I see the big numbers on the scale but don't think I look that bad. I also have been just a teensy bit obsessed (okay, tremendously obsessed) with TTC (which isn't working so far...), and kind of just lethargic lately. It's like I spend all my energy at the gym and don't save any for other stuff, like coming up with a better eating plan.

Today is my last day of work for a while, so I have time to come up with a plan to get back on track. It better be a good one, because I really need it.

    185 lbs! Man... If I did that... I would be one giant knot of extremely sore, overworked muscles! You are super strong Susan!

I've had similar feelings about some books before- in my never ending quest to find my "answers" for overeating and how to get over my eating issues. Then... at some point, I just gave up, because deep down, I didn't want someone else's answer I guess. I had to really distance myself from all that stuff to start feeling whole again
and to be open minded!

That pic of you ( even though it is only your face) that you posted on FB .... is just really, really prettty!

    Oh, boy. I hope you can find your motivation soon. I read a comment above about sharing what was eaten with those that will keep you accountable, and that would mean today I have eaten a large unknown quantity of M&M's (peanut butter of course) and my morning pills. That is totally embarrassing, maybe I could find a buddy to do that with!! Haha! But I think batch cooking and freezing stuff into meal portions is a better option. I have been trying to count calories but not motivated like you, but I think maybe after todays brekkie I will track for the rest of the day! Maybe that will start a streak?!

    Thanks for the insightful review - I had that book on my list but it sounds like the intended audience isn't people like us who are well-educated about what it really takes to lose weight/get healthy. You are definitely one of the people on this site who knows EXACTLY what it takes for them and their body to lose/gain/etc. Thanks for the update - I always love reading your blogs. I hope the TTC starts going well - you are in my thoughts!! xo Liz

    Hmmm....Overeating is a huge huge issue for me. I fight it daily. I began tracking again a couple months ago and that helped, but as I'm sure you know, became tedious. I then enlisted the help of the man I'm seeing and his sister and nightly, we now share what we've eaten for the day. It still gives me the "publc" accountability I need without having the tediousness of the tracker. I also am back to measuring portions and we batch cook to help with planning meals ahead.

I am a firm believer that you have to find what works for YOU so that you can stick with it. You are really doing well. I've been following your blog for a long time. And you are still here. Still working hard. Still searching for exactly what works for you. You are tenacious...just keep plugging away. You'll get there! :)

    Maybe you should start out slowly with what you eat. Instead of limiting what you eat, choose to limit how much you eat. Try this for a month. Next month, try tackling another eating problem like limit yourself to fast food 3x a week. I don't know your eating habits, but you can adapt this to how you eat now.

I'm currently reading "Secrets of a Former Fat Girl" by Lisa Delaney, and I really enjoy it. She talks about how she was before and how she has lost the weight. She gives lots of tips about both exercise and eating.

    I thought that book was sub-par as well (glad I'm not the only one!). Lately I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the conflicting diet advice floating around out there (...do eat that, don't eat that, do eat that, but only this subset of that, etc.) I'm actually taking a break from "nutritional advice" at the moment and trying to figure out what I feel best eating (energy/health wise AND emotionally...if my food is going to be forever depressing, I'll never eat it no matter how "good" it is for me). So I'm no help, but you're not alone!

PAPER_WINGS18 8/9/2012 12:23PM

    There's nothing worse then when we "lose" our motivation to watch portions and be more mindful of it. I wish that it was as simple as an on/off switch, but it's not. :( I think you have a LOT on your plate(like TTC!) and that because you are putting so much effort in there, the "other stuff"(like food intake) is easy to slide on a bit more. Especially with the stress you are probably feeling with that. Be patient though, I have no doubt it'll happen when it is meant to be. & hey, at least you are still keeping up with the exercise! Usually when I lose the motivation to track food or watch portions, exercise falls to the side too.

Four Day Mini Challenge

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Hi everyone... just thought I'd share that since we are going to Cape Cod this weekend, I'm on a mini challenge to prepare. I started yesterday. I'm not tracking calories (probably should be, but I've been doing this long enough to know in general how much to eat to stay in range), but I do have some rules:

*smoothie for breakfast
*batch-cooked meal for lunch
*something small for dinner, things like fish or chicken and vegetables
*optional: 1 small drink, 1 small dessert
*snacks: 1 baggie almonds, 1 hardboiled egg, fruits, vegtables
*water
*cardio
*strength/stretching Tues/Thurs

I'm doing this Monday (yesterday) through Thursday the 26th. We're leaving Thursday night for the Cape. Basically I should always be doing these things, but for right now it has to be a bit stricter.

One Choice Instead of Another

Thursday, July 12, 2012

It's a little after 5 P.M. and I'm hungry. I was just about to eat a granola bar AND bring a brand new box of crackers to the computer with me...but then I thought about how I've made it all day so far with only healthy choices - smoothie, coffee, almond milk for breakfast. One serving of a batch-cooked meal for lunch (white chicken chili). One "just a handful" bag of almonds and cherries for snacks. Almost 90 minutes at the gym. And now it's practically dinner time. So I put the processed snacks away (they're my husband's anyway) and decided to heat up a bag of frozen mixed veggies and get dinner started early.

I haven't been blogging lately because I am so embarrassed to be weighing in the 170s. But I did see myself in a two-way mirror yesterday and saw that I am definitely not as chubby as I have been in the 170s previously - I have more muscle now, I just know it. Also, I was super proud of myself at the gym a few days ago when I saw two different men bench pressing the same weight as me. I'm chubby, but I'm getting strong.

    Thatta girl! Way to make an awesome choice. When faced with yummy addictive processed food AND hunger I rarely make the right choice...so impressed that you did!! Also, I hear you re: muscle and a different body despite the scale weighing the same. I think it's much better to have some muscle and weigh more than to be "skinny fat" with a low # on the scale. I just started intensive strength training and I would much rather see definition than skin and bones. Have a great weekend!! Liz

    Susan... I have been stuck in the 170s forever and... unlike you, most of the time in the upper range-lol. It's almost comical and even though I don't even have a scale anymore ( it broke and has not yet been replaced) I am pretty certain, I am still in the 170's.. hoping for the middle, but not all that sure.
Anyways.. keep focusing on how strong you are and how toned you look--- yeah.. you might not be perfect, but the thing is.. the number doesn't define you--- it's just a phase... and I know you--- once you put your mind to weight loss, you make it happen... you have proven that over and over and over again!

Over 3 weeks since my last blog...

Friday, June 29, 2012

I've just really had nothing I want to write about. My weight is embarrassing, so I don't want to talk about that. I've been on track with my exercise just about forever, and back to tracking my calorie intake for the past couple of weeks, and though I initially saw a drop of a few scary-high pounds at first, I've been stuck with my weight still way too high and not moving ever since. I know the number on the scale isn't everything and I have some muscle, but I don't fit into last summer's shorts.

School has been out now for a week and a half, and I've enjoyed having very little to do. I have one more week of freedom and then summer school. We refinanced our mortage to save about $80/month and had the closing the other day. The closing was in the city at 10 A.M. and then afterward we went for an early lunch and then I spent the rest of the day in the city while Jess went to work, and then met up with him for dinner. I spent several hours at Barnes & Noble..I read a few fitness magazines, and then I read a book about eating paleo. I was wondering whether to try it, but then I read online that it's one of the least safe and least recommended diets out there. I already try to avoid too many grains while I'm trying to lose weight, but I don't really want to give up dairy or beans, and don't seem to have any negative reaction to these foods. Anyway, after B&N I went for a long walk around the city and luckily despite the ominous clouds there was no rain storm, and then met Jess for a lovely dinner.

The next day (yesterday), I went BACK into the city (I live in the city, technically, but I mean the part of the city tourists would actually go to) to get my hair done. It's a once in a great while treat for me. Well actually it's not a treat at all....I hate trying to figure out where to park (and ending up paying $32 for valet garage parking), the huge expense of the hair treatment, the 3 hours it takes to do it, and the sting it brings to my eyes...but I LOVE having straight, shiny, soft hair. I wanted Yuko but my stylist siad my hair wasn't healthy enough. :( (I bought a deep leave-in conditioner to help fix that situation) and got a Pure Brazilian instead, which is like a Keratin but new. The best part is that there is NO waiting to get your hair wet or creased. With other procedures you have to wait 2 or 3 days which means, of course, no working out, no going outside if it rains, and no showering! Ew! This was a bonus. But, this procedure REALLY stung my eyes - the chemicals had the same amino acids that are in onions apparently...I was sitting there under the dryer crying away... and also it only lasts 2-3 months, and it probably won't be that straight after I wash it...she did say it eliminates frizz which is great for summer. But you know what else would be great for summer...NOT weighing 172...ugh. I'm rambling. This is why I don't blog anymore.

    LOL!! I love your rambling! Keep blogging, please!

So, I am going to give you a hair suggestion - stop using shampoo! I haven't used regular shampoo since October and my hair has never looked better. You could buy something called "no poo", or use a tbsp. of baking soda in a cup of warm water. I condition using 2 tbsps of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water. The main ingredient in shampoo, sodium laureth sulfate, makes curly hair frizzy, so look for a brand that doesn't have it.

Enjoy your freedom till summer school starts!

    Ugh I'm with you on the weight thing right...I don't wanna talk about it but I KNOW that I have to personally face this and do some serious changing if I want things to get better. I've heard a lot about paleo and I think it's great how it encourages whole, unprocessed foods, but I agree...I can't cut out beans and dairy and I LOVE my fruit! Hope you are able to find what works best for you. I know you will. Plus everyone's body is different and responds differently to eating plans.

Totally random and maybe weird, but I totally thought about you the other day and wondered if it was time for your hair procedure- your annual summer event-LOL!
Like I said, I'm weird.

And I know you-- you'll figure this weight stuff out!

    ^^agree with SRBROWN2! SOmetimes we just get in ruts where we eat and do the same things over and over again and our bodies just need to mix it up! I knwo you eat pretty healthy so maybe just try varying those healthy foods up?

It will come off. SOmetimes our bodies just do crazy things, as sucky as it is. Stay consistent and you will see changes!

    The weight will come off. Have you tried varying up what you eat? Also, try new workouts. I know it's hard, but you can do this. Don't give up.
