What can I say? I'm still in shock over the smaller pant sizes. Nothing more to add. (smiling) Have a good day.

I've Been Talking to Myself All Day, Like a Raving Lunatic - 3 dress sizes down!

Sunday, May 10, 2009

Honestly? I've been a bit discouraged lately due to a plateau I've been on for awhile. But I got a reminder today that the scale is not the only measure of success. I went to get new pants and thought I was one size down. But I wasn't. Went a size lower and WOW! They fit! I had to check the tag about five times to see if it was a misprint. (smiling) That means, since I started this lifestyle change of healthy eating in October 08, I'm down a total of three dress sizes. I've been in awe all day, just beside myself with surprise and delight. Yes, it has rekindled my motivation, which has been there, but needed the flame to be fanned. However, wouldn't you know it? No sooner had I experienced this excitement, I was already thinking of the next couple of smaller sizes to be achieved. We humans are very impatient!

    Jesse, emoticon!!! Contrary to popular wisdom, the proof is NOT in the pudding; it's in the PANTS. Wasn't it terrific to see that the scale doesn't tell the whole truth - and nothing but the truth? I don't think there's any barometer of weight loss and fitness that's more faithful than our clothes...and you're THREE SIZES down?!? You inspire me!! Keep up the great work! - Sara emoticon

    Congratulations! I went through the same phase, except neither one of my two scales would agree on a number not budge from it. But little did I know that something was changing, until I tried a dress I haven't been able to zip up in more than a year!!

Hurray for smaller sized clothes. They never lie!

Revisiting My New, Heathy Eating Habits - #10 Hunger vs. Triggers

Saturday, May 09, 2009

Since starting this lifestyle change of healthier eating seven months ago, I have become more aware of the difference between real hunger and eating for other reasons like boredom, stress, etc. It has been very important for me to focus on true hunger and not social eating, which is one of our society's favorite addictions.

    You said it. Here's the real tricky part. At night, when I want to eat to comfort myself...and I KNOW I'm not really hungry - I'll still want to eat anyway!
and like you say, it Is a Societal thing, that we eat to Socialize, and for recreation. Its crazy. I love what you wrote on your page...about not having to obey your Feelings, but sticking to your Life plan. (I think that was you?)

    Good point Jesse,
I seem to do well during the day and at the last part of the day I overeat. Not 'cause I'm hungry, but because - well comfort eating, boredom, stress, I'm not quite sure...It seems like a lot of folks have the same problem. If I could just tackle this - I'd be OK. emoticon

    And that's a really major discovery process, isn't it? I find myself eating out of boredom, nervousness, tiredness - you name it. As for real hunger, I doubt I feel that any more than the average thin person, i.e., someone who hasn't had a weight struggle. I'm glad you happened to mention this, Jesse; it beckons me for lots of further work! - Sara emoticon

Revisiting My New, Healthy Eating Habits -#9 Weighing & Measuring

Friday, May 08, 2009

Prior to 7 months ago, when I began this lifestyle change, I hadn't weighed myself since 1980. Since I never had a weight problem, I always went by how my clothes fit. However, about 3 years ago, with hormonal changes and lots of stress, the lbs. started piling on. When I began eating healthier food, I resisted having to use the scale and measuring tape. However, I soon realized that they are tools to serve as measurement of progress. From one extreme to another, I went from never using the scale, to using it daily. I think that's too often; it drives me crazy to see bodily fluctuations each day, so I've compromised and weigh-in weekly instead.

  


Revisiting My New, Healthy Eating Habits - #8 Breakfast & Regular Intervals

Thursday, May 07, 2009

As a kid, mom always made me eat breakfast. But when the teenage years hit, I decided I "wasn't a breakfast person." That habit of skipping breakfast remained throughout my life and really didn't affect me because I never gained weight (up until the past few years, that is). So I didn't see the disastrous effects of skipping until I actually started this lifestyle change 7 months ago. Eating breakfast daily has made all the difference in the world, as does eating at regular intervals throughout the day. Before, I'd eat whenever hungry and never paid attention to keeping my blood sugar up. No wonder I'd be ravenous toward the end of the day! Seems so simple to do, but now when I deviate due to schedule changes, I can really see how my body responds now that it is used to the healthier way of doing things.
