Reunited

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

This week I've been reunited with my treadmill emoticon but it seems to be malfunctioning at the moment. My husband ( the fix it guy) is in Barbados visiting with our daughter at present. She was in a lot of difficulty the last week (she experienced two break-ins )one at her home and the other in her car, enough said about that, so he took off to help her re-settle and to assist her in any way he can.
So I'm here with my broken treadmill and awaiting his return to see what we could do about it. In the mean time I'm still hopping on and off of it when I can and making the best of our time together emoticon.
That's all for now, hope everyone is having a good day. emoticon

    It's too bad about your treadmill - I sure wish I had one. Hopefully, your DH will get it working soon. I'm sorry your daughter had some problems--I know that must upset you also. Keep up the good work and healthy lifestyle. emoticon

  I'm sure your treadmill is happy to be working out with you again. I would be very upset if mine went on the fritz. I love using for my walking and running routines. Hope things go better for your daughter and that hubby gets home soon so he fixed the treadmill. I'm sure don't want any more time away and having to reunite again with it. emoticon

Good luck on your journey.

Out of Control

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I'm having a horrible time keeping my appetite under control this week. I don't know if my body thinks that it must demand the reward of more food for having cooperated with me last week by giving up 2lbs., well I have news for this body of mine I not going to give in anymore , I have done so for the last few days and I have had enough, there is no satisfying this flesh, the more I give in the more it increases its demands on me and I can't take it anymore. I command my appetite to subside even right now.
See you guys around. Bye emoticon

    Your blog made me laugh. I know what you're going through . . .the more you eat the more you want--at least me!
Keep focusing on the goal your working towards and stay motivated by reading The Spark and reading positive blogs and articles. Yes, we can conquer our appetites.

    You are on the right track to beat this. I had that same problem the other day. Forgive yourself and go on. It can't be redone so go forward and forget the past actions. That is what I learned. You live for today and just one day at a time. Let yesterday go and don't worry about tomorrow. emoticon you have got a lot of friends there for you too. emoticon

    Also try drinking water flavored with Crystal light. Are you sure you are giving yourself enough calories for the amount of exercise you are getting?

    When I get that way I find 2 things work.
Adding more vegetables of different colors sauteed with a little chicken broth (no steaming for me), or grilled.
There something about seeing a full plate with lots of colors that seems to satisfy my cravings.

And if you add a small portion of beans, they boost your seratonin levels, add fiber, and keep your blood sugar steady to keep the craving demons away.

After One Year

Saturday, October 09, 2010

Today I realised that it took me one year to lose 30lbs. Exactly one year ago I started weighing myself and started a journey that brought me to spark people. I won't bore you with the details but I recommitted myself to this site four months ago and lost 15lbs. since. emoticon
While thinking about this I thought to myself what if it took me another year to lose 30lbs and I answered right back, that would not be too bad. I will be totally grateful to my body for allowing me the pleasure of another 30lbs in the next year. I know some may say another year? What's with that, but I realise this morning that I'll be okay with it, I'm not going to stress.
I am pressing on with my program but I'm also struggling with a lot of self doubt and I think the best way to handle it right now is to take things one step at a time and truly try not to be anxious about anything including my weight loss journey, there are other aspects of my life that need some adjusting and these areas will also be there after I've reached my goal weight.
Guys I'm looking forward to the rest of my journey, how about you? emoticon

Go Girl Go!

Congrats on losing the 30 lbs!

There is a benefit to loosing on a slower pace.

Think of it this way ... the slower losers skin has time to adjust and shrink on it's own ... the faster losers may have to have skin removal procedures so they do not look so flabby. Keep going girl!

Love,
Vera

    Great attitude! I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Even if it takes me another 9 months to lose the next 10 pounds, that would be ok. At least by this time next year I'd be 10 pounds lighter. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Tammy

    Thank you for sharing your journey!! I also lose weight very slowly but it's a steady 12# loss. We can do this--lets keep motivating each other . . .

    It's not a race, it's a journey...and it's better to lose it a healthy sane way than to wreck your metabolism and your health with fad diets. (I still remember drinking honey, lecithin, and cider vinegar...another magic diet that got me nowhere). I don't know about you, but I need to put more emphasis on the exercise portion of this formula. I even came across an article on MSNBC.com about the fact that on the whole we eat less but are heavier that people years ago. Reason #1...we are more sedentary. So lets both get off our tushies and dance away those fat cells. Have a great weekend.

Tired But Content

Friday, October 08, 2010

This has been a pretty tiring week for me. I walked a lot and tried to keep on my feet by doing my house work and also helping my younger daughter with hers. I'm plum tired, but the scale was good to me I lost 2lbs. and I'm so grateful. I thanked God and my body for co-operating.
I also thank all you lovely friends and well wishers here on spark people emoticon I'm promising to keep up the activity for the upcoming week God willing in the hope that I'll get more positive results. Bye for now. emoticon
