Picture is worth a 1000 words

Wednesday, June 12, 2013



What a difference 3 years can make. In 3 years I have managed to regain 75 pounds. I am so disgusted with myself. I worked so hard to get to a healthy weight and I have regained all of what I lost. I have had a lot of stressful situations that I obviously have not dealt with in a healthy way.
For some reason a picture always manages to address what I seem to be able to ignore with increasing numbers on the scale and clothing sizes.
So, I start my journey again. I can do this, one day at a time, one pound at a time.

    Oh I love it! I had a wonderful Siamese, named Geisha and I always thought she was part human.
Enjoy your "chocolate"!

(Love the tablecloth, too.)

Buckle Up

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

I quite possibly am the biggest yo-yo dieter I know. Currently up 60 pounds from 2 summers ago I have decided (again) to try to get back in control. I have been living like a slob (Stacy and Clinton would cringe). I have been living in comfort in the means of yoga pants, yoga capri's, t-shirts, ponytails, etc. Yoga fabric is quite generous and it is rather uncomfortable to be back in clothes that do not STRETCH to accommodate. These workout clothes are appropriate for the gym but they do not say much for my fashion sense outside of the gym atmosphere. It is my goal to wear clothes with an actual waist that remind me of the extra baggage I am carrying. It is time for me to care enough about my appearance and myself to take the extra time each day to actually coordinate an outfit, style my hair and love myself a little. Instead of diving into the deep end and attempting to correct all of my dieting faults at one time; this time I am going to wade towards deeper waters and gradually change. This week I have been back to the gym (in yoga pants emoticon ) and I am wearing CLOTHES.

    I have done the yoga pants, before,. What a shock to feel the tight pants, once again!
It is a great way to gain control.
I like your steps, for the week!

Thank you for my pumpkin! I love Fall and hope you are doing well. emoticon

    I hear ya, honey. My problem is that so much of what I do (working out, taking the dog for a hike in the woods, working in the yard, volunteering at school, doing housework, doing laundry) lends itself so naturally to yoga pants and capris. I have regained 10-12 of the 30 lbs I initially dropped so the jeans that were comfortable or a bit loose on me are now not fitting comfortably at all. I am joining you in your vow. In honor of you, and to remind myself that excessive food has visible consequences, I will be wearing an actual waistband with zipper and button, tomorrow, except while actually working out. When I am honest, I remind myself that going out in yoga pants is barely a notch above wearing pajamas or sweatpants around - the official "I give up" uniform (according to Jerry Seinfeld emoticon). One thing I have always prided myself on is my ability to be truthful with myself, even when the truth is uncomfortable. The truth is, my jeans and other pants/slacks are uncomfortable right now. Right there with you, Sparkler! emoticon

New Kitty

Monday, August 06, 2012



My new kitty, Sulu. Such a sweet boy as he sleeps on my chest!

    Unfortunately, my sweet boy is sick. He has been sick since the beginning of September with chronic diarrhea and weight loss. "Non-specific colitis" per the vet. I adopted him from a shelter and he was initially tested for FIV; FeLV both negative. He has a LOT of symptoms of FeLV and I have a bad feeling he is positive. Vet recommends retesting at 6 months. In the mean time, my sweet little boy that should be full of mischief just sleeps most of the time and he is just skin and bones. It kills me to see this sweet "failure to thrive" baby wasting away. Kitty prayers and positive thoughts much appreciated!

    I really like all of these - thank you for sharing them. How are you doing? Have you made your fat cry today? I am happy to say, I did - twice! I am coming off a 2 week road-trip so this past week that I have been home has been all about resting up, and getting back into the swing of it with my routines, especially exercise and chores. Today, I am feeling like I am back to a more rested, healthier state. I have tracked my food and exercise, and gotten some things done, and did both strength training and cardio. My vacation was wonderful, and worth it, but took a toll as well. Have a great weekend!
