I put him first

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I've been tied up, tangled up, and caught up in a dead end relationship.
I've been focused on changing while he was focused on changing me too.
I've been hitting emotional road blocks, being unsatisfied, unhappy, and out of control...

"Last night I cried tossed and turned, woke up with dry eyes.
My mind was racing, feet were pacing.
Lord help me please tell me what have I gotten into..."

But one day last week I stopped it.
I got tired and put me first.
I told him, "I don't want you anymore".
I told him, "I want me, I choose me."
So I'm off of that roller coaster and back on a more stable track.

"Yesterday I told myself I was gonna be okay.
Gonna start a new day be truly happy.
I was gonna take control of me..."

I was on an emotional roller coaster.
"Loving you aint nothing healthy.
Loving you was never good for me..."
And I'm so glad I got off.

    You go girl!

Life is way too short to let someone else control your life. I'm so proud of you for taking that control back and I know it wasn't easy.

Today is Day One for you ~ the beginning of the rest of your life.

Congratulations! I am looking forward to reading future blogs from you!

5 Dollar Footlong

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

So I think Quiznos and Subway got together and said, "Let us ruin Tenecia's weight loss plan, buhahahahahahaaaaaa!"

Ok, well maybe not, but I really need to stay away from both establishments. I have gone footlong crazy. I guess it is better than a burger, but all that bread can't be good for me, and you know I have to pick up a bag of chips to go with my sandwich.

    Subway's is not that bad if you get the wheat bread and no cheese or mayo. I know, kind of boring. I only eat veggie subs from them and I get no cheese, spicy mustard and all the veggie toppings. I have not eaten a whole footlong though, I just get the 6in. Try getting the apples instead of the chips.

    Yes girl they're tryin to sabotage all people tryin to lose weight. I saw subway had a special(don't really care for them) didn't really tempt me, but when I saw the commercial that QUIZNOS!!! had one I was like damn! damn! damn! why'd they had to go do that. Definitely gotta stay away from there!!! I love me some Quiznos. emoticon

    Look at it this way- you could buy a chicken breast footlong, split it in half, eat half for dinner one night and the rest for lunch the next day and with baked chips- could be much much worse!

I have lost my zeal for the gym. I have been watching what I eat, but I can't make it to the gym. I think my desire to go is coming back, I really think a buddy would help the situation!!!

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Thursday, May 08, 2008

I knew the numbers were big, but I didn't know that there was a big difference in appearance. These pictures are helping me stay on track. I didn't know until today what I had accomplished. That is the same shirt in both pictures, I was popping out of it before, and today I had to pull the string to hug my waist and it was still too big.

    I LOVE pictures (as you can see on my page). It is true, they keep you motivated and help you see how much your work has paid off.

Sometimes the #'s don't do it, you need a visual! You look good girl and it is an amazing difference!

Can't wait to see more!

    You are so right, a picture is worth a thousand words. A picture shows what your eyes may try to conceal. You go girl. Keep up the good work!

Potato, Potato

Wednesday, April 02, 2008

I was watching a special on weight loss and a woman said something that put weight loss in perspective. Often we look at all the weight we have to lose and don't appreciate the loss, pound by pound. After losing 5 pounds, try walking around the grocery store with a 5 pound bag of potatoes. You will find it is heavy and lugging it around can become tiresome. This is the extra weight that you had been carrying on you.

A year from now you will have wished you had started today. ~ Karen Lamb

    This would definitely be a reminder to be thankful for each and every pound gone! Those bags of potatoes are heavy! ;-)
