    That is great that you are trying to get into the healthy lifestyle again. I am actually just the opposite of you, I love to eat breakfast and drink water. But I am the same as you in that sometimes I binge eat. It is really important as you said to eat every few hours to prevent the binging. Best of luck and I would like to hear your inch measurement progress!!

2 sizes!!!!!

Saturday, January 28, 2012

I've been moaning and groaning the past weeks about lack of motivation, loosing weight is too difficult, blah blah blah. I haven't been logging into Sparkpeople and tracking like I should.

I've been trying to watch what I eat, and exercising
My funk was getting deeper and deeper
Ready to throw the scale out the window!!!

But . . .

I went window shopping to day. Determined to find something to wear to make me feel good in spite of my size. Found some cute stuff
I tried on a 20, much to big
Tried a 18, better but still a bit loose around my stomach and butt
The patient sales lady suggested I try a 16.
No Way! I was not in the mood to get my feelings hurt.
She talked me into it

IT FIT ! ! !
It was comfortable. And Baby! I looked good!
But, I thought, that is just one dress, just a sizing fluke with this manufacturer
So lovely Sara brought more clothes, pants, tops, skirts, all size 16, all fitted nicely.
I sat down in the fitting room and cried.

Away with you scale, I can't read it clearly anyway. (it was a cheapy)
Guess its time to bite the bullet and buy one that I can read and is more accurate.

Thanks all my sparkpeople friends.
Special thanks to my spark buddy LASTGOAROUND, you kicked me in the behind and it worked.

They say we should pay attention to other signs besides the scale.

The body needs starches, protein, dairy, vegetables and fruits and fat every day. Portion control is really key, 8 oz chicken, 6 oz red meat, 7 oz turkey, 7 oz fish, 2 oz cheese, 4 oz not from concentrate juice. A food scale and a liquid measuring cup are good tools for that portion control. 30 minutes of exercise 4 times a week would give you energy! I can sense your inner frustration with what you are doing and it sounds like you had some emotional eating with the disappointment of the job interview. Sorry you didn't get it, keep trying! I am more than willing to talk or give more advice. You CAN do this!

What is a 58 year old woman to do

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Some days I look it and feel it
Some days I look it but donít feel it
Some days, I just donít care
What do you do when youíve done what youíre supposed to do
Kids are grown; you are mother not mommy anymore
What do you when you reach the time youíve been looking toward
If youíre lucky enough to be employed, itís a job.
No more career, no more trying to climb the ladder

For the first time since I was a child, I am responsible only for me
No parents' dreams to fulfil
No schedule to adhere to
Only my dreams to achieve
Only my goals to set
Only my life to lead

What am I to do?

Watch me, I may surprise you

    Congratulations on your first blog. Keep up the good work. The more you put into you program (blogging, huddling, tracking food and exercise minutes, posting on your team pages, earning spark points) the more you will get out of your program- besides weight loss, you will get emotional support, friends who understand exactly what you are going through, accountability, focus, dependability...and the list goes on...
