I am at a crawl one step at a time with my Toolbox!!!

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I have many tools in my toolbox, Spark people, weightwatchers, Overeaters anonymous and fasting as needed.

I used all of my tools at different times. I start my day with a reading of inspiration and a direction on where I would like my day to go. I accept that whatever comes my way is a opportunity to grow and become a mature me everyday.

Sometimes the hour to hour and day to day can provide me with more of a challenge than I can accept, however I am flexible and adaptable. emoticon

I have an appointment with the WLS surgeon on July 9th. I am humble and patient one step at a time.

I will continue to use my tools in my toolbox and continue to be accountable for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Thank you all for your words of support and acceptance.

Back on Track: I am Recovering Food Addict, Back to Step One

Monday, May 27, 2013

OA= Overeaters Anonymous my program choice that is working for me

Step One: I admit I am powerless over food that my live had become unmanageable.

Spark people is part of my tool of recovery, When I do not track my food, when I am not reading new blogs and sharing strength and encouragement, when I am not stretching my body of adding Leslie walking DVD then that is a sign that my life is becoming unmanageable.

Step Two:Came to believe that a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity.

Spark People is part of my tools of recovery. My greater power that restores me to sanity is the wealth of information that I can read and learn right at my finger tips. I have many, many power of examples to draw strength from that bring me to sanity on Spark People.com.

Step Three: Made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God.

Spark People supports me in my choice, by just making information available to me and I make the final decision.

I have lost 1.5 pounds this week and I feel great my mind is at peace. No confusion. I body feel great no sugar, no white flour only whole wheat. So far so good. I have 10 days, abstinence= 3 meals a day no white flour or sugar.
Thank you All for you wonderful words of support and prayers God is doing for me what I could not do for myself.

Janet
Have a great week!!!!

    Thanks for your honesty and being willing to share your journey. I have found that SP is a safe place to share my struggles and feel understood and receive support from people such as yourself that are struggling too. We are all making forward progress as we support one another and overcome together.
My very best to you. Thanks again for your continued inspiration.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I especially like how you wrote that "the wealth of information" is part of the "power greater than yourself." You are right -- all the information and encouraging blogs on SparkPeople IS power. I guess that's why at 4:00 am, up in the middle of the night and very anxious, I'm reading your blog. PEACE!

    Glad to see you are making good choices. I plan to do the same. I feel I am addicted to food or an overeater too. I looked at the OA plan and it scared me to death. I have been able to do South Beach for quite awhile and was very happy with no cravings. I plan to incorporate that in with my Spark Diet. Good Luck to you!

Binge, Binge, Binge

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

It all fell down on me. I had a binge. I have decided to go back to OA on my knees. I need help I am willing to accept help to connect with my higher power who I choose to call God.
I can not do this on my own. For those that do I send a big thumbs UP.

Step One I admit I am powerless over food that my lives had become unmanageable.

My eating effects my mind, body, and spirit. Awareness brings change.

I will start tomorrow with a pray then start my day.

Thanks all for your loving comments I have so many loving friends and I feel honored reading all the wonderful comments.

Please pray for me

Just after I posted this, I happened to read the following:

Coach Nancy says:
Never feel bad about what you have done. Feel good about what you can do.

    You CAN do this! You are stronger than food! Drink more water to feel more full. Find more fiber filled foods that taste good, i.e. Fiber One Brownies YUM!

Week 1 The Spark Solutions and 5% Summer Challenge

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

I am a busy camper this week. I took on more than I can manager however this is a Janet life story. emoticon

I was not able to get things perfect like I wanted, however I did not stop or give up.

Being in sparkpeople I have learned progress not perfection. I have made lots of progress.

1. I created my own fresh veggie platter. I tried to take a picture of it, next time I will.

2. I walk back and forward in my hallway in 5,10,15 times a day.

3. I am getting to sleep faster and sleeping well.

Have a great week my Sparkfriends

Janet

Starting another Journey over and over again.......

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I am on the path again, I am so ready for this challenge.

I am choosing a low carb food plan about 100 or less carbs a day. I will make adjustments when needed.

I will be walking with Leslie walking away the pounds.
15 minutes a day. Not all at one time 5 minutes here and there. Adjustments has needed.

I plan to stay busy with spring cleaning ahead.

My plan is to focus on Mind, body and soul. Keeping them balance do my best and forgiving myself and have fun.

Keeping in touch with Teamates, new friends who sense my commitment and who offer support.

This is where my journey will continue. These are things I have learned about myself by taking accountability for my actions.


My goal is to preserver my body for as long as I can.

So with faith and adventure I start this path with joy and peace. I will reward myself seeing the difference in my attitude and habits.

I am looking to reach my goal by the grace of God.

I have got the ok for gastric bypass surgery. It seems God is not through with me yet.
