OMG! Don't be afraid!!!

Monday, May 11, 2009

So my Mother's Day was spent enjoying a dose of chlorine at a local indoor water park! I got into my favorite bathing suit, though a little snug, not embarassingly so, at least I hope not. Hubby said I could be seen in it in public. I had a ball and though I still have 10-15 lbs to go before I am comfy in the bathing suit, life goes on. I rode the water slides with and without inner tubes and I can't recall the last time I did something like that, let alone just climb the stairs to get to them. My family had such a lovely day and all because I was willing to get out in bathing suit without too much fear!!! WOW!!! Thank you Sensa for everything. Less than 100 days in and I have lost 21.5 lbs and it is starting to really change my quality of life!!! Yeah-Me!

Blue Jeans

Friday, May 08, 2009

Got into blue jeans this week! I don't buy blue jeans in the 20+ sizes. So I had to get down to an 18W before I could get back into any I had put away. Got a pair on today! Size 16 here I come!


Tired of having no one to talk to...

Friday, May 01, 2009

So I am tired and lonely in a way. I have gotten 4 different people to try Sensa with me, but they are all nearly 3 months behind me in the program. So we don't have a lot in common in the way of successes to share. I feel like if I talk about my success too much, it will sound like bragging.

At home, no one discusses my weight, good, bad or otherwise. My kids are too little and my darling husband too politically correct. My best friend is too small (though she is an encouraging as she can be considering) and most of the other family I have are too far away or too judgemental to just be happy for me.

Yesterday I hit a major milestone to me... 20lbs lost and even though I could tell a few people about it... for some reason fireworks didn't go off. Somehow I thought they would.

I am not discouraged in my journey, just lonely for someone to share with. So I guess I will start blogging and even though I won't know who is reading it, it will give me a place to air my experiences without having to apologize or feel guilty.

    Thanks everyone... amazed that anyone even read my posts... this is so encouraging and everyone is so sweet. Thanks alot. I really needed a few kind words to head into the weekend with. Going to be seeing family on Sunday, and they are supportive... but they are all in better shape too, so I usually feel like the ugly duckling... see the picture of my darling brother in my gallery! Hard to compete with him!

    Twenty pounds is really impressive. Good job!

I kind of get how you feel about not having anyone to talk to. My roommate just lost 40 lbs in 3 months from this Benefit diet. I hate talking to her about it because, honestly, she didn't really work to lose any of the weight. I'm proud of her because I'm sure it wasn't easy for her to avoid food. That's the kind of diet where you only eat what they give you and absolutely nothing else. It did well for her but I'm going a different route (exercise and dieting within the realm of my financial means). I couldn't -afford- her diet if i want to... she spends a whole lot of money on that food every week, so that's embarrassing for me. And I also haven't actually lost anything yet that I can tell, so that's an embarrassment, too.

During Picture - 04/29/09

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

So I am not going to call this an after picture... have way too far to go still, but it is a "during" picture. It is funny how this picture doesn't make me feel as good as I did looking at myself in the mirror this morning... but I still know it is way better than the before picture I posted last night. This picture is after losing 21 lbs this year and 18.5 of that with Sensa. Don't know how long it will be before I take another "during" picture... but I will try to be brave and post it when I do. Fun Fun!
