Life's troubles

Friday, May 21, 2010

Today was a tough day emotionally for me. Family and financial pressures.
I did well with my eating though, and exercising.
I raked the heck out of my driveway as there were tons of pine needles and pine cones.
I wanted to go for a walk, but ran out of time. I have an overnight trip tomorrow, but will
try to get something done, even if it's dancing around in the hotel room. Yesterday I printed
out some pictures of what my goals may look like. One is of a girl who I think is successful
because she's living the life she wants to live, she's a friend of mine on Face Book. One is of a woman that does yoga, and she is very fit and happy looking. One is of a church, because I wish I was off on Sunday and could go to church. One is of a guy who I think is very nice...and maybe a future date. I think this was a positive move. I still need to feel better about things. I'm trying. I was encouraged by people who made comments on my blog yesterday...thanks to all of you.

  


The Reluctant Spark

Thursday, May 20, 2010

I'm very reluctant to do this. I have tried it before, but with out much conviction.
I'm 53 and have been through it all before. I feel I'm doomed to be fat forever.
I wonder if it is even necessary to loose weight. I know it would
be healthier, I would look better, be able to buy jeans or anything off the
rack. I wouldn't have to hide from mirrors or camera's. I'm also single, and it would
improve my chances of meeting "the one"..do I even want to do that? When "the one"
comes along, I should be ready. Then again aren't there plenty of fat women who have
men who love them no matter their size? Shouldn't a man love me at any size?
One of my problems is that I can't love my self the way I look now, so how could I accept
a man loving my body the way it is? I don't look anything like the girls in movies and tv,
or what a women is supposed to look like. I just see a big blob...who wants a blob?
My problem is an overall reluctance to live life really. The fat is not only genetic, but it is also symptom of overall lack of discipline that spills into all aspects of my life. I'm a horrible time manager. I look at things and don't deal with them until it's absolutely necessary.
I'm the queen of procrastination. I have too much clutter in my life. My house is not
like those seen on hoarders...but I do have too much crap. I always say I'll take care of this
or that when I'm on vacation...but vacations come and I don't do it. I'll find any reason not to
do something. Is it laziness or just a lack of desire? I think I have desire but no motivation to
back it up. So...by joining this and blogging I hope to find motivation. Today I walked for 45 min.
I live in Tahoe, so just step out the door and there is beauty. I went to a beautiful river today.
It's a first step. It's hard to walk here in the winter...there is snow and ice for months on end, but now I have no excuse. I'll see what I can accomplish tomorrow...I hope more than today.
If this seems like a downer blog...well..it's how I feel. I'm being honest as best I can.

    I feel that this has been a lifetime pattern. Complacency/remorse.

You can change it.

Perhaps you are too afraid of having life not have this pattern.

That is pretty standard. We all are afraid of change. We can't control it.

    One step at a time - the whole project is overwhelming. Find something you can do today, like your walk.

Be gentle with yourself.

    YOU CAN DO IT. TRY NOT TO GET TOO DOWN ON YOURSELF AND JUST REMEMBER THAT THE BEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF IS SLOWLY. MORE OFTEN THAN NOT WHEN PEOPLE LOSE WEIGHT REALLY FAST THEY END UP GAINING IT BACK AND THEN SOME. HAVE A GREAT DAY AND KEEP US POSTED ON YOUR SUCCESS!! emoticon emoticon
