New man, new me

Saturday, January 05, 2008

I have been dating a new man and he's lovely.

I have to work off some seasonal indulgence because I'm back to wobbly tum and being overweight again (I can't eat and drink like he does!).

He's a superfit runner (very active job), slim and toned body and ... 16yrs younger than me, so that's quite a challenge!

    I was "sparking" around and fell into a thyroid group I hadn't visited and noticed your blog ... Wendy, my friend, good to see you! Congrats on the new love interest. New people: new perspective, yes? ((hugs))

My SPARK 10,000 Silver Trophy

Friday, April 13, 2007

Today, I reached 10,000 SPARK points and was awarded my lovely silver trophy, one of my short term recent goals.
After much critiscism from family/friends and some 'sparkies', who fail to understand my thyroid, carb intolerance and petite height limitations, I increased my carbs to about 70gms and cals to 1,100 per day and gained a few pounds back again, which annoyed me because I was only 3lbs away from never being overweight again! I'm going back to what works for me and lots of sweaty exercise, hoping to soon reach the magic target, no longer overweight. I hate it though when a few days after lots of exercise, you gain muscle weight and have to lose those few pounds again.


Sabotage !

My visiting diabetic sister and mother don't approve of my Atkin's low carb diet and keep trying to fill me up, convinced that I am now anorexic (they don't seem to notice my rolls of fat around the middle!) My fat-burning has stopped yet again, just when I had reached the 2nd positive colour on my keto sticks too. Testing my blood sugar when they do, reveals a much higher level than when I eat low carb. In a few days when my sister goes home, I can return to low carb eating again.

    Wendy I found some of your posts in an Atkins thread and they are inspiring so I checked out your page. Try to ignore your family, they love you but just don't understand. We each have to do what is right for us. I'm also sitting here in my size 10 jeans and today shocked someone when I told her I wore a size 20 less than two years ago. I still have 40 pounds to go to get to the BMI I want but tend to look smaller than my weight would indicate so maybe that is why - Good LUCK!!!

WOW! Size 10 jeans again!

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Although I have been trying hard with my low carbing and exercise, I hadn't lost much in recent weeks (ate with some friends) but now a few more lbs have gone forever. I celebrated by buying much-needed smaller size bras, 3 jumpers and a gorgeous pair of stretchy tight grey cord bootcut size 10 jeans. My BMI is down to 27.4 and I'm beginning to look and feel much better now.

    Hey Wendy - Congratulations ! You have done so well! Wow, to have a BMI under 30 - that's something I'm looking forward to getting to. I look forward to buying smaller bras too because I am too big up top for my 4'11" body. I know how you feel about not loosing a lot in recent weeks. I find that if I let myself have a weekend of being OFF, it is SO HARD to get back on track. My 50th birthday was on Jan 19, and my DH took me on a Birthday get-away weekend. Being off the diet all that weekend, I thought I'd get myself back on track the next week, but I didn't - and I actually gained 4.5 lbs that week! (I was so mad at myself) I think I've done better this week - I got back to my allowed meals last Friday, but I've been sick with cold/flu for 2 days and off work, so not eating my proper meals. But I will find out tomorrow night at my weigh-in. I have not been here lately - but I have been on a weight loss program and have been loosing since November. I am down 10.5 pounds (I was down 14.5 lbs before last week). I would like to figure out if I can enter all my weights here on the weight tracker for each of my weekly weigh ins since Nov. I can only see how to enter today's weight.

Yippee! I'm no longer obese!

Monday, November 20, 2006

20 November, I passed my obese borderline milestone and I'm now just overweight. Been trying to get there all month but my extra exercising added heavy muscle and the scales didn't go down.

    Dear Wendy,

Woo! Hoo! What a milestone! (I hope to reach it someday, myself!)

You deserve to feel proud of yourself for so many reasons. Self-discipline is hard and you've brought it to the level of being an art form.

Please give yourself rewards for these major accomplishments. If we wait for the world to reward us, we'll go without. Have a day of complete relaxation... listen to "your" music... buy yourself something nice (even buying the very best of something small) such as a luxury soap or a really nice candle... but please recognize your hard work.

You're doing great! Congratulations!

: )

  Thankyou for the message on my page. Congratulations on moving in to your new category! It must be so rewarding to get results like that and see all your hard work pay off. I am looking forward to that feeling myself!

Keep up the good work, and thanks again. I was a little scared about doing a page, and being honest about why I came on here, but as you say, everyone seems so friendly and caring.
