Frustrated that my blog erased today... and it was good!

Monday, May 10, 2010

This morning when I woke up.. everything was great. I was excited for the day..

Than I started the day.. and I was still feeling pretty good.. but than things started to go down hill once I hopped on the computer.

1. I wrote a wonderful blog about how I love losing weight.. than I hit a button (Idk which one) and everything was gone.. *sigh*

2. I logged onto Facebook and saw that RA interviews were happening again. This made me sad.. that I wasn't invited for an interview. I am and would be again a great RA.. time for me to move on.

3. At the same time of logging onto Facebook I saw the guy that I kinda like and stares at me but NEVER says anything.. now is in a relationship. I. do. not. get. this. Am I just an objectified and being treated as a sexual object in the sense that I am good enough to stare at but not good enough to talk to.. ARGH.. Also last week he was fighting over my attention. WTH! Seriously, frustrated.. but you know what.. it doesn't matter anymore. It does make me sad.

Between 2 and 3, one can see why I am not on FB as much these days.. it brings me down majorly!

By the way, I lost 2.4# this time. emoticon I will try to focus on that.

    If it doesn't make sense it's not true. Judge Judy says that and it was the first thing I thought of when I read about potential guy. He doesn't make sense so I think I'd stay away from him.

Sorry to hear about your blog being lost - I hate it when that happens.

And finally, congrats on the weight loss!!

    Better things are waiting for you, and the better you look the more opportunities will come your way. Build friendships and have fun. The more people you connect with, the more you will discover the type of person who really touches your heart.

And Congratulations on the 2.4# Keep up the good work.

No room for prejudice in my heart or the world!

Friday, May 07, 2010

Today, I had trouble deciding what to blog about and than I got an email about this which happened at a nearby college. Perhaps God brought this to me.. to pass it on. I am not sure but I do know I got a button on Wednesday saying: No room for prejudice in my heart. Please know this is truer than ever before. Go to the link and read the article.. there is no room for prejudice in this world.

Please pass it on.

    Stupid people do stupid things. It's great when they get exposed in public. The problem with things like facebook is that it makes it easier for bigots and slanders to spread their venom to even more people, and post videos or pictures of an innocent victim. It's not just prejudice; it can be used to cyber stalk anyone.

No Respect..

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

That's it! I am seriously frustrated.. I feel that my friends are not respecting my 100 day challenge. They know for 100 days I am trying to go out to eat. I know it is a long time and it is not like I am expecting them not to go out to eat.. Anyhow, they invite me.. and I cannot say no and we go. And, I break my 100 Day Challenge.. I am just frustrated. I don't know if it is with me or them.

In addition to this, my friend said he would take me to Red Lobster after I said Applebees is not good for my WL. *sigh* I know Red Lobster is healthier for what I order but still. We agree to meet 1:30 and be hold he is 30 minutes late. Yes, he did call me.. but I don't understand why he had to run to the town in which we were eating in before we went.. (I hope that makes sense.)

Besides that, I don't know if I am going to get my super walk in today.. *sigh. I know I need to set better boundaries.. and this is partly my fault but STILL! This weeks weigh in shall be interesting..

I hope your day is going better than mine.

He is here now so time for me to go..

  I have found that if I am going out to eat or am going to an event that is food-centered, I eat sparingly my other 2 meals. This works well for me and I can still be social and not afraid of going way over my daily calorie amount.
Good Luck!!!

    I am so glad you wrote this because restaurants are usually my downfall too. I have been meaning to find an article on SP to help with that. Here's what I found:

http://www.sparkpeopl
e.com/resource/nutrition_articl
es.asp?id=544

85 restaurant strategies. Believe it or not I do better at Old Country Buffet because I head straight to the salad bar first. But, when I go to a "sit-down" restaurant I never order a salad if it doesn't come with the meal. WHY?? You would think that at OCB I would go wild with all the choices but I don't. I don't even think their food is really all that good so it's easy to stay away from a lot of it. Salad and a hunk of ham and I'm happy!

Anyway it helped me so I thought I would pass it along.

    I sympathize. My friends claim they are all on diets, but when we go out, you would think we were celebrating Thanksgiving. Just some suggestions.

When you don't want to isolate yourself... Every restaurant does have 'legal' foods you could order, and you could even ask for a 'doggie' back right from the beginning and only eat half the portion. Or you could order an appetizer and a salad.

    Thanks everyone.

TORONTO_GRRL_79 - The guy I ate with actually has heart problems so sometimes he cannot walk and sometimes he can. Today, he couldn't.

MYSHARONA6 - I did get the salmon (over portioned, of course) and 3 biscuits. I am thinking it will be okay since I only had 600 calories in for the day before that. It is kind of chilly out now.. but yes, I definitely need to get some exercise in.. even if it is for my sanity!

    Sorry to hear things are so frustrating for you. Try to make the best of the rest of the day. Make yourself something for dinner instead of going out. If your friends ask you out, politely refuse and suggest doing something else after the meal.

MYSHARONA6 5/4/2010 4:19PM

    It really is tough to stay the course. I used to think of the right thing to order when going out, and then when I open my mouth, something else larger and with too many calories would come out. There are good choices out there; it is just ordering them.......Hard to do sometimes.

I think you will figure it all out. We have to go on living and there are birthdays and events all the time. I cannot tell you how much birthday cake and ice cream I ate in January, February, March and April! Everyone has birthdays then. But you do your best. Just keep exercising....walk, walk, and more walking. It will all be okay!!!! emoticon

    I hear you! It's so hard to say no to spending time with your friends! It's one thing if your friends are all into healthy stuff and you can suggest and physical activity instead, but mine (and yours too from the sounds of it) are not! They eat, they watch movies ... luckily my friends aren't big drinkers! And places like Red Lobster, it's still difficult for me to get the healthy choice when what I REALLY want is something else. With butter. I just keep telling myself it'll come with time.

The important thing is to make sure that your weight loss fits into your life. You can't change your life to fit your weight loss plans! (Or maybe I shouldn't say that ... personally, I know that if I do that it'll never last, but you gotta do what works for you!)

Jeans Reward Turned into a Shopping Spree..

Saturday, May 01, 2010

As many of you know, I went on a shopping spree.. did I ever! Initally, it was going to be just jeans.. as my reward. Well.. it turned into much more than that.

Jeans. At least two of the four pairs are size 16s!

Shirt galore!

5 pairs of shoes! Regular sandals, dressy sandals, ballet style shoes, and zebra hightops.

1 Braclet.

Here is a photo of it all.. from Maurices, Goodwill and good ole Walmart!



[Sorry that it is hard to see it all.. but you get the picture.. haha.]
