I must be ready

Monday, October 13, 2008

I was reading some blogs the last few days and I am not having any of the problems that I see some people are having. That's a good thing. Of course I only started my journey in early July so I guess you could say I am still on the honeymoon. But then again maybe I'm just plain ready. Ready to be done with all the games. Ready to do the work. Ready to pay the price for my foolishness.

Every once in a while a picture of someones heart (from biggest loser this year) with all that yellow fat running through it all over it looking real NASTY comes to my mind and I just want to puke! To think I did that to me! Well! Enough is enough I don't want to be like that! So Yeah I am ready.

So, when you lose all the weight and you get to a good goal does that fat magically disappear or do I need a surgeon to cut me open and peal it away?

Yeah I'm ready! emoticon

    I'm ready too but I find it hard to stay on task and cannot keep my big ole pie hole shut. Love to bake, love cookies.

Oh, I looked at your pictures. The reason why you think you look silly?? My 18 year old daughter takes the best digital self portraits. The real trick......must do it with one hand. She has developed a real talent for taking photos of her and friend when there is no one to snap the camera. It is amazing, now if she could learn to do laundry. Enjoyed your page. Some of your comments really hit home.

I felt good when I saw the scale read 295.4. Actually I did a little happy dance in the bathroom. It was when I read the thread in team 300 plus congratulating me for making it in the twos that it really hit me. What I had done. I needed to wipe my eyes. It felt that good.

Happy Labor Day

Monday, September 01, 2008

I have had a very good Labor Day. Just putzing around the house cleaning off my computer table. Yeah!! The remainder of the computer area will be worked on tomorrow after I exercise. I must set up my new computer. I love to play games and decided when I bought my new one I would use my old one for the games and I won't be going on line with it.It is just so weird, when I come in it looks like I am seeing double. Whatever works. I did very well calorie wise. I hope every one else did good today as well.

    LOL, I know what you mean about seeing double! I bought a new computer last year:) I've just been trying to help Judy (SASSYTHING52 / on our team) who just bought a used computer at a garage sale and apparently the previous owners had kids who played lots of games and now Judy's having a hard time with it . So I agree keep the old one for games, lol!

I'm glad you had a great Labor Day! Have fun with your new computer! emoticon

I made it through another Busy Day!

Sunday, August 31, 2008

We were busy today. It was good though. Just before supper time my brother-in-law picked up his grandson and we got to have Silas overnight. I love that boy so much! It amazes me that even though I didn't ever give birth to any children that I can feel this way about another human being. He is almost 3 and is sleeping in my bed. I am so tired I hope I don't wake him up when I crawl into bed. I was good on my nutrition and I am one happy camper. I feel so blessed.


I feel like a total pig!

Friday, August 29, 2008

My sister and I were tasked with sitting her grandson Silas 2 months shy of age 3. It is so not our ordinary routine that I just knew my diet would go south. I sort of prepared for it by making sure I took water and something to drink for lunch and a bunch of grapes in case I needed something before we took him home for lunch. Silas thinks of me as his playmate! I love that myself! He does wear me out.

We walked to the park from his house which is only a couple of blocks away. I could hardly make it. My hips were in so much pain. I have just started walking and someone suggested that I take two canes along and they said that might help me. They have helped but I forgot to take them with me this morning.

We brought Silas home with us and I put in a small self rising pizza in the oven for Silas and Beck's other grandson Zach who is staying over for the weekend. We got them situated and we started to prepare our lunch. I felt sort of bad because I knew I was going to take some pizza. I was so glad the boys ate at least some of it. i had t small pieces. But it sure does add up. If I had stopped with the lunch I would still have been okay but I made a pig of myself at supper. Well today is done and I can start a clean slate on Saturday. Labor day weekend!!! ugh!! That is another day. I will get back with you tomorrow pm. I should have Beck's will power!


Okay I had to figure it out! I was over my limit by about 240 Calories.

    Today is a new day! All of this is a new way to live for you. You are learning a new behavior. Like anything that is new, you will need to practice before it become a habit. Give yourself room for mistakes and credit for successes. The best piece of advice I can give you is failing to plan is planning to fail. I know you can do it! Hang in there! emoticon

    Hi Susie!

It made me sad to see you say (especially in the title) "I feel like a total pig" and "I made a pig of myself at supper". (250 calories over?) How about next time "I ate more than I had planned at supper but I went for a long walk to the park and had a great time with Silas." That's a much more kind thing to say about the situation.

We all really need to guard against the things we say to ourselves and to others about ourselves. (And comparing yourself to others doesn't help either:) We're not perfect and there will be times that we blow it.

So do the best that you can and plan, plan, plan when you know you're going to be in tough situations. And if it doesn't work out then it is what it is and just do better the next day.

The more you practice turning those negative thoughts around the better you will feel about yourself:)

I'm glad you had a fun time with Silas! 3 year olds are so much fun! You CAN do this! BIG emoticon
