Arg....life causes a detour...again

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

So, I was doing great.....and then my b-day hit. I figured "hey, it's my birthday, I deserve it!" Bad me! So, I gained weight almost instantly (water from sodium, but still) and I got into the mentality that I am fine the way I am, why should I change, society should, blah-de-blah. Then came the cookies. I LOVE baking, just for the fun! I am proud of myself for resisting to the best of my abilities. I ate only half of what I would have before, if that! But, alas, my butt and thighs don't care if I show a little restraint, lol! Sooo, I got back up to 290, and I felt sooooo horrible. I started doing better, just eating less, but not tracking. Got down to 281, but, then came the poptarts! THEY SUCK!! 410 cals for 1 package? WTH?! Up to 289 I go! Anyways, started watching my cal intake yesterday and already lost 4lbs. Prolly just water, but it counts! I have also been put on Metformin for my PCOS. Hopefully it will help my metabolism. I just loooove having PCOS AND hypothyroidism.....it's a joy! Can you feel my sarcasm? Anyways, I hope I am getting back on the right track, because I need this for my health; physical, mental and emotional. I do not DESERVE food, I need it to SURVIVE. "Eat to live, not live to eat", to quote Dinotopia, lol! OH! I even colored my hair my fave color as motivation! PURPLE!! It is fun, but my shower looks like I massacred pink, blue and purple care bears!! emoticon

    You did what so many of us do, so don't beat yourself up too much. There is no magic formula to this losing weight thing-just lots of trial and error...or in my case, lots and lots and lots of error, along with some trials! You're learning-about portion control, reading nutrition labels, tracking your food, and learning how to deal with food in a realistic way. We need it to live, but if we're eating too much of those empty calorie, less nutrition dense things (like, um, poptarts?), we're not gonna live as long, or at least as vibrantly as we could.

You will be fine, as long as you keep learning from your journey and are willing to keep modifying what you're doing, until you find things that work for you. Good luck!

Beginning Week 2

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Hooray!! Starting week 2 on this fantastic journey 11 pounds lighter!! YAY!!! I am also quite proud of myself for facing a major phobia yesterday! I have this irrational fear of stairs I can see through. I am also very skittish without my glasses because without them I am legally blind. So, my fiance and I went to a local motel pool with a water slide! YAY......or so I thought! The two story stairs above the concrete floor were see-through! Even the platform where the slide began I could see the concrete floor two stories below me! EEEEK! BUT, with the help of my AMAZING honey, I got up there! And that slide was worth it! I went up not once, not twice, but 10 times! I AM NOT GOING TO LET FEAR OF ANYTHING STAND IN THE WAY OF MY GOALS ANY MORE!! If I could do that, I can do anything........well, except fly or something crazy unreal like that! Anyways, I hope everyone has a great and productive week!!

    Awesome news! You're really lucky to have such a supportive honey to be there for you. Of course, you're also doing a great job of facing up to your fears, and doing some great work on the weight loss. Go you!

    LOL! I am glad I am not the only one afraid of those stairs! Even if you don't lose any weight you have gained knowledge AND you should be proud of yourself for being able to get through a bad week and not give up! Just believe in yourself, girl!! You can do this! If you ever need to talk just drop me a line! Good luck at weigh-in, but don't judge yourself too harshly; your human, enjoy it!! emoticon

My first entry! Sorry if I babble!

Friday, May 11, 2012

Well, here I am 6 days into my new lifestyle, lol. I have lost 9 lbs, a lot is most likely water from cutting down my sodium intake. My fiance is sticking with it, also! Poor guy has never "dieted" so, he is kinda depressed and upset at being hungry. But, he is doing a great job, I am so proud of him! I am also so very, very happy he wants to be right along side me on this (our) journey to health. It means so much to me! I can't wait to see the look on his face when the number on the scale drops for him! Just to show that all this is not in vane! I am, also, quite excited to see my numbers drop. I hope that by his birthday in September I will be back to the weight I was last year on his birthday. Speaking of birthdays, mine is in a couple of weeks. I will turn 25 on the 25th. I am going to let myself splurge on ONE small cupcake. I mean, you only get one golden birthday, right?! Nah, I just figured I won't feel too deprived so I won't lose ambition! Well, that is my post, hope I didn't ramble too much!! Night!

    The thing about blogs, is that they are like journals, but we share them. =) They are not only to share our experience to others, but they are also self therapy in letting out emotions. You didn't ramble one bit. =) I am glad to see you and your fiance are doing this together! That is always added motivation and accountability that never hurts! 9lbs in 6 days is WOW! The most I have ever lost in one week was 7lbs. So good for you. Even if it is water weight. =) And emoticon on your first blog with SP! =))

    Lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one prone to rambles! Yeah, that is my prob with getting to a pool, too. I grew up in apt buildings with pools most of my life, so since I moved out of the last one in 2006 I have been in pool withdrawal, lol! I am a water baby! When ever I go for walks I think about the t-rex, makes me laugh! Thanks for reading and leaving such a nice comment! Hope you are having a great night! emoticon
