Back on Track

Sunday, April 13, 2014

After reaching my final goal, I went nuts. The pounds were creeping up. I regained 13 lbs. Of course not happy with myself for allowing this to happen, I put on the brakes. Although I didn't go into diet mode again, I made a consorted effort to put all I had learned about nutrition into practice In short, I watched what I ate very carefully. I accepted the idea that I couldn't continue to eat a bag full of gummies in one shot. Since I love them so much, and couldn't eat them in moderation, I stopped buying them Boy do I miss those nights of snacking in front of the tv with my favorite treat. Still the scale went up and down. Then, I actually stopped trying so hard and just listened to my body.

I'm now back down to within a pound of my goal weight. I am very happy and sure I will drop that last pound. I will not celebrate this success by going out and buying my favorite candy. My husband even watched the portions he served me at lunch! That's 2 years in the making. my once diet saboteur has become my ally! That's the most pleasing of all. Good for you, DH!

Stand your ground and never give up! I changed my focus from"I" to you and shared my experience, strength and hope with others as I sought team blogs out to comment on. I have become "we" focused.

Keep writing those blogs. Love to hear about your successes and near failures. No ones a failure unless you quit trying. Hang in there sparkfriends, I'm here for you!

My Concession

Sunday, March 23, 2014

After 9 months of frustration, I, conceded that I had reached my set point of 143 and that the 125 of my youth was truly unrealistic for me. I also saw how I was unwilling to do what might be necessary to maintain such a low weight. Once I conceded and changed my tracker, I became comfortable in my skin and actually began to like where I was. My clothes that I had hung onto, fit and I didn't desire a thinner neck and face. I thought I might look like I was malnourished should I lose more. Actually, when I met my husband 10 years ago at 125, he said i looked like a stray kitten or a little Cambodian baby, and set to fatten me up. Fatten me up he did, until I finally stopped it at 199 lbs. That's when I found Spark. It's been an unforgettable, never-ending journey of 2 years now.

    The words "You shouldn't weigh what you did in your teens & twenties!" have been said on more occassions than I can count. There is something to be said in feeling comfortable in one's skin, at a healthy weight for a mature body.

God bless!

It's better to be healthy than to meet a certain number on the scale! You've overcome and achieved a healthy weight for this time in your life! emoticon

    I think you are wise to realize that more mature women should not aspire for the body they had as young grownups. Even young people like my DD1 at 26 has come to realize that the amount of work she needed to do to get down to 140 pounds was unrealistic for her. She was always slim and as a teenager had a 25 inch waist but she was also an avid dancer and was very fit. Today she is a fit young woman who enjoys dancing and rock climbing but to stay at 140 she would have to spend hours at the gym as well as work full time.

    I wouldn't call it a concession; I'd call it much wisdom.
