walking group

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I recently inspired a few people that saw me walking my usual route.They started waiting for me and would come out and walk with me.3 people turned into 13 and now 18!One young lady told me she's been wanting to tell me how much she wanted to lose weight and saw me "MELTING" I laughed and told her the only secret i have is its never too late,TOO LATE IS DEATH,she hugged me with tears in her eyes and said Can i start today walking with ya'll? We waited while she changed clothes and kept at a slow pace until she adjusts. I live about 3 miles from that neighborhood but have made friends.An old guy has given me summer veggies(we have a big garden)we give him potatoes.I'm on a quest to invite as many that wants to come along.

    That's awesome! What a great thing to have so many be inspired by you and want to be a part. I would love to find people that would walk and motivate me. Maybe I just need to set out on my own and see if anyone joins me.
Keep up the good work! emoticon

Naughty friend

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I have this friend that i know cares deeply about me.SO why does she stop doing right and tries to poopoo on everything i do?It's like "well ive quit exercising and dieting,you should too" Then when i give her a LOOK she jokes her way out of it!Yesterday,I wanted to walk on this wonderful walking trail i like and she offered to drive me.We walked all the way around and she says I need donuts!she proceeded to stick the donut in my face and taunt me.So i grabbed it and threw it out the window...She is A N G R Y at me now!hahaha and i dont care!!! She needs to respect me i would never do that to her!!

  Sometimes a positive change in our lives makes our friends/family members take a more critical look at theirs. Don't let her get to you. I have a mother in law that has yo yo dieted all of her life and she giggles when I eat something she perceives as "bad" and tells me I'm "being naughty". I have had to remind her that I'm 44, the mother of 3 and long past the "naughty" stage. I also tell her that no foods are off limits to me, that I can eat what I choose to eat, as long as I track it. I had birthday cake on Sunday and she was very critical about the size of piece I had. She didn't know, nor did she NEED to know, that I had burned over 500 calories in my work-out, plus whatever I burned cleaning the garage, vacuuming and washing 2 cars and cleaning my house that morning.

I tell my children to "get glad in the same pants they got mad in", so I guess this applies to your friend!

    I have had to work hard to not obsess over the scale. I would weigh myself everyday and now I am down to once to twice weekly. I am due to measure this week.

    Be sure you are tracking your measurements. It looked like I was going to face my first week without the scale moving (I've been on SP 7 weeks) but then I remembered I hadn't taken my measurements for a month. SO great to see the inches I had lost.
Also, since I have keep practically ever pair of jeans for the last 10 years (when I weighed 47 pounds less) I keep a pair of too small jeans handy, and yep, every week they get closer to fitting....There is more than one way to keep me motivated...hope some of these work for you too!

    Woo Hoo! I personally had to stop tracking because the numbers make me crazy. I just have to listen to my body and it seems to be working, lol.

    There are soooo many posts on here regarding the evils of the scale!!! Keep track of how you are feeling and how your clothes are fitting! I actually sent my scale on a vacation because it was driving me crazy :)

Thanks so much for your offer of support!
I felt the same way when joined in early January- I think the positive attitude of SP is definitely contagious!
