Reaching My Limit with Skinny Bitches

Thursday, January 27, 2011

Okay... so you know I talk about my roomates a lot and how I wish they would motivate me and what. But this has reached my limit. They ate some of my fresh bananas I bought the other day from the grocery store. Not a problem in most cases right ??? Well in this case its a big problem, especially since I use my fruits as replacements for unhealthy snacks. Now if we were all equally contributing to this factor in the house it wouldn't be a big deal. But they still eat out or are cooking things with a lot of carbs that are unhealthy for me to eat. They share with each other but not with me.. (mainly because they are closer friends) nonetheless this upset me today, because I felt that was something that they should have understood..... I wasn't always buying fruits and vegetables and salads. Now that I am if you want some ASK DAMMIT... don't just take at your leisure because you live there. Now it makes me wonder what else is being eaten of mine... thats "healthy" I left a very detailed note and I hope nobody got offended by it but if they did I am in the I don't care mode, because, this diet and exercise thing is important to me and even if they are not in the same boat then they can at least respect me I feel.

I want your opinions on this spark people family... if they do get upset how should I handle the situation and help them to see things through my eyes. Especially since they don't understand me counting the calories and me avoiding certain foods. They don't understand the backlash that can happen. I may have been a bit brash with them but still..... this is a rough journey and it means a lot to me to lose this weight and get confident again.

    First they shouldn't take your things without asking you first. They know you are trying to lose weight they just don't care about your feelings. When I buy healthy foods for me in my house and my sons used to eat my things up. I told them I didn't mind but, please ask first. Since then I haven't had any problems. I think you did right by leaving them a note.

    We talked about it, and they are upset because I think I think they don't support me, but we talked it out and its been diffused. I also got some fresh bananas... my roommate bought me a couple. We came up with a plan to make a meal together and I think that will be good for all of us, because they don't want to see me starve myself and I don't want to either. ;)

  Tell them how much your fruits and veggies are to your calorie intake....and that if it were anything else you wouldn't be as upset over it. Good luck with the roommates...and on you reaching your goals!

    Ugh, I hate roommates like that! I had one that would use my dishes then leave them laying around dirty all the time (and we had a dishwasher at that!). It was disgusting.

I wouldn't care if they got upset. It's YOUR food, and that's not right for them to take it if they haven't at least asked - esp. since they don't offer in return. You have to tell them or let them continue doing it - and you told them! I'd make sure that they'd know what's mine and to leave it be! I put my stuff in a certain place in the pantry and my parents and sister know not to mess with it.

    Thanks.... some of my friends think I overreacted since they don't normally eat my stuff we kind of respect each other in that sense of things, and part of me is just in panic mode like the other commenter said... so one less banana is one less healthy thing I can look to instead of cookies or cake or whatever... they think me leaving the note is going to cause tension, but I just want them to take this as seriously as I do. emoticon

    I think if you just tell them that you are on a calorie counting program and that you rely on your fruits and veggie for your daily intake. Ask them to avoid eating your food.

    Your roommates may not think what they did was a big deal. Your note should clear that up for them. I think you did the right thing in writing it. If they still don't get it, you may have to explain further.

Often, people who don't have weight issues have trouble grasping the fact that dieters are one "missing" healthy snack away from panic-ville. They just need to understand. Good luck on reaching your goals.

  They shouldn't get upset since they took something that wasn't their's to begin with. From now on, just in case, things that do not need to be refrigerated leave in your room. Also maybe you can label things as well so they know it's yours. Hopefully it was a mistake. Good luck!

WORKING OUT

Wednesday, January 26, 2011

So i am excited because i am going to work out today and thats exciting to me... I know but i know I can do it, and I am taking my friend Tonya's advice and looking at the fat content and the carbs as opposed to trying to get everything in. Being a college student its impossible to do it all right now... I am going to hit up a fast food place, but its all in moderation and I have to drink my water and work out. Today was the first day my fat count was high since i started January 3rd. Its almost February so I am excited I am keeping this up... and even though today I am tired I am pushing myself to go to the gym because I want to lose the weight so I can make this imbalance work if I work it out and do what needs to be done :D . I am also getting compliments about me slimming down and its exciting so I cannot wait until march when its my 23rd b day and I am rocking a sexy dress or May when I graduate and have another sexy dress on... I want the sex appeal so I can walk with my head up high knowing the "boys" want me.... only the men can have me though ;)

Sticking to it....

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

I went grocery shopping for so many diffrent things and I am excited about healthy cooking :D I know that sounds a bit lame but I am trying brown rice and baked chicken tonight.. This is a lot easier than one may think and thanks to the support of people on here I am doing well. A friend had me calculate my BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) basically how fast my body burns calories and I was surprised it burned so many at just a sitting rate... so the only reason I was getting fat was my eating habits once those changed and I cut out the processed and the fast food the pounds fell off... since I exercise it probably is higher..... but me getting all the protein I can and healthy food is going. I am so happy that the pounds are coming off and if everybody doesn't understand why this is so important to me then they were never in my position. So I am going to stop looking to my roommates and friends and family and look to myself for the inspiration.

    It does feel good to know I can go home and cook a healthy meal especially when every now and then I slip when eating subway (which is not that high in calories but high in sodium because their meats can be processed :(, but at least with sodium I can drink tons of water and work out and sweat it out... calories will be stored as fat if I don't move it move it.) emoticon

    Congratulations on making those changes! Doesn't it feel great to put all that healthy food up at the register??? The first time I had the belt full of fruits, veggies, greek yogurt and whole grains, I was so proud of myself that I stood there taking pics of it all on my cell phone!

Feeling a bit in the middle.

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Even though, I am losing weight and all that is good and I am sticking to my dietary needs and everything. I feel like I have hit that plateau where I am not losing anymore. Its hard finding clothes that fit and it makes me feel very sad that I am not losing any more weight, and I also am still lacking the support from outside sources which makes this journey hard but I am still going to keep doing it because its important to me.

    Don't give up you can do it just keep doing what you're doing. I was in a plateau for months until I started to workout harder maybe you need to change your exercise around a bit try something different that is what I had to do and it worked for me. Hang in there!!

    Stick with it, because it is so easy to slip up and then the pounds sneak right back on. I was on a plateau for months last year and then all of a sudden the pounds started rolling off again. I could have very easily have given in. You just can't give up. Hang in there. You can do it.

Inspiration

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I am losing weight and starting to really feel good about myself. I have inspiration from a lot of places. Some are my inner wanting to lose weight, and others are from just wanting to be a better person. I want to be a healthier me so that motivates me all the time, and seeing my clothes get bigger and people telling me how they see the weight loss is exciting. :) I am need to workout with my crunches again, but since I am injured for the time being I haven't been doing it. I am walking however and still doing some cardio. :)
