Suddenly I'm In Such a Rush to Lose the Rest of this Weight

Monday, April 20, 2009

Today it hit me like a tidal wave... I can't stand the rest of this fat hanging around and feel like I might start being in a big hurry to get it off my bones. It's important to be careful and do healthy, wise eating. And to keep focus that there are no shortcuts. I just hate the feeling of having the rest of this weight on me. It feels like a million lbs instead of just 17 more.

    Those last few pounds - and that last little bit of fat! - seem to be released from our bodies so slowly! What frustration! Stay with healthy eating and exercising...nothing else really works in the long run. You're so close now! I'm rooting you on!! - Sara emoticon

    I know what you mean -- "hurry up already". Try not to focus on the weight-loss, it will drive you crazy. Try some new exercises, get outdoors for a hike, fill in your spare time with physical activities to distract your attention from food. Learn something new (dance class perhaps?). The time will go by quicker when you're not watching the days of the month or the minutes on a clock. Keep up the good work!

    I think we all get like that. I know I do. Thats when I have to focus more on how far I have come instead of how far there is to go. We magnify it in our heads, and we want it now, right now. But looking at from a bystanders view, they would only be thinking about how well you have done, not about whats left to do.

Getting Rid of Fat Clothes

Sunday, April 19, 2009

I am sorting out my sizes and giving my fat clothes to charity. These bigger sizes don't fit me anymore and when I have a split-second thought that maybe I should hold onto them "just in case," I banish that thought immediately. I cannot ever allow fatness again. It was the most miserable of states to be in and caused a lot of collateral damage that I'm still working to repair. I still have work to do on these weight issues.

    I did the same thing. Tossed out (or gave away) all the BIG stuff. Bought a bunch of NEW stuff. Plus all the SKINNY jeans I HAD been hanging onto were NEW again! emoticon emoticon

    I know exactly how you feel, I thought of holding on to a few items of clothing just in case. But as yourself, I don't want any reminder of my heavy-ness. I gave all of my clothes to the Goodwill. Keep up your good work. emoticon

    Hey, Slimmer -- this is just GREAT!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon!!!
I love that you THOUGHT about keeping them, but decided there would be no JUST IN CASE!! That took guts. You spent the money on the clothes and were a different person wearing them and those days are over. As the slimmer you emerges it is great that you can celebrate in new duds! Congrats!!

    I took everything that was too big for me and tossed it in the collection box that is conveniently located outside my gym...

...felt damn good to stand there and put those clothes in there and they are then taken and sorted and put to use around the world for those less fortunate either by being used by the less fortunate or the funds from the resale being used to benefit the less fortunate.

I MUST BE NUTS!

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Yesterday, I was walking through each store and restaurant in a nearby mall as part of membership development for the local Chamber of Commerce. I entered this bistro-like cafe with delish aromas everywhere, and a full view of their bakery items. I gave them my info, and put my business card into the jar thinking that maybe I'd win lunch whenever they had the drawing. The lady behind the counter beamed and said, "oh, you put your business card in there, so you get this for free." She held up this huge, homemade, yummy-looking chocolate chip cookie and I didn't miss a beat. Before I could think twice, I said politely, "Oh thank you, but please give mine to someone else who'd like it." I had a huge smile for the rest of the day, marveling that I didn't even have to think twice about the decision. Nor do I yearn for goodies anymore. Now, the amazing part of this is that I used to be the sugar queen of the universe. So, I must be nuts to have passed that up! But now that I've been eating healthier, my body doesn't crave the junk anymore. I also know that I'm an "all or none" gal. That is, there's no way I could have had just that one cookie and enjoyed it. It would have been a trigger for more, no doubt. Wow, I could never have passed up something like this in the past. But now it's not even a consideration. Whew, I'm impressed! (smiling)

Parts of My Body Returning! Hooray!

Friday, April 17, 2009

Amazing, but I am finding parts of my body that have been MIA during my past couple of chubby years. My upper arms' flesh doesn't hang down and my muscular definition is returning. I can feel my abs where I'd despaired at the possibility of never finding them again. When I zip my pants, I can actually see the zipper! It's all good. There are so many benefits to weight loss, that I have to keep them in mind during the times when my motivation leaves town for a little while. (smiling) Have a good weekend, sparkfriends. emoticon

    I do know what you mean!! I've been embarrassed to say it, but my knees are re-emerging -- I can find them and see them again. Sad that I couldn't before but fabulous that they are here now!!

    Sounds like you're looking "ab fab" these days, especially since you can see the zipper again! And the upper arms, too - wow! Isn't it fantastic to see the way this has paid off so handsomely? You have no idea how much you're inspiring the rest of us by sharing these amazing changes with us :) - Sara emoticon

Seeing the Scales Next Set of Lower Numbers Is Thrilling

Thursday, April 16, 2009

I realized this morning, as I head out to yet another professional networking meeting where there will be ever-present food temptations, that it's so thrilling to see this new next set of lower numbers as I weighed myself. I'll keep that in mind as everyone else is shoveling donuts and big, fat egg dishes down their gut. (smiling) Have a good day, everyone. Once again, thank you to my friends for all of their great support. I never take it for granted and am very appreciative of all your words of wisdom.

    I always think of what it took for me to do what I've done and then shoving egg dishes and doughnuts in my kisser always loses it's luster!

Keep up the good work and the mindset! You'll see the rest of that weight fall off!

    Yes it is such a thrill when the scale moves below a ten mark! I am also keeping in mind that summer is right around the corner. Summer = less clothes to hide behind.
Or in my new attitude. summer = me in my slimmer sizes.
