Don't even know where to start...

Sunday, July 06, 2014

I'm embarrassed to tell you, but I have been away so long, it took me quite a while to figure out how to enter a blog. My last blog was April 30th. I started out at 248 back in Dec. 2011 & as of July 4th, I weighed in at 252.4...Hellooooo...I am going the WRONG direction... not sure who I think I'm kidding. It seems like it was just yesterday that I said... let's see...my daughter, Jan-Marie is getting married in about a year...NOT the case...she is getting married in about FOUR months...not 14 months. My plan was to try & lose about 40-50 lbs in a year. Well that did not happen & it certainly won't happen in 4 months. I need to start shopping for a Mother of the Bride dress & I dread it because of my weight. About the only thing I've done right in the last month was to get back to riding my recumbent bike 5-6 & sometimes 10 miles a day. I feel like I just can't get a "handle" on it...can't get or stay motivated. I just finished having back-to-back cookouts & KNOWINGLY served stuff that was JUNK & not needed. My daughter, husband & I all do NOT need to sabotage our Battle of the Bulge & I have certainly done my part to do that. OK, that is my story, as of today. I SO believe that anyone can do ANYthing for 24 hours...now my intent will be to Walk the Walk instead of Talk the Talk. Take care & thanks for listening...

    Today is a new day to start again. One day at a time, one choice at a time. Starting over is hard but SP is always here to welcome you back and never judging! Best of luck on your journey!

    I agree that a gorgeous dress -- cut especially for you -- can help you feel beautiful! And...I've been there, too. There are many, many factors that go into obesity and its not surprising that it's a difficult journey. Some of them are built into our culture -- and we don't have much control over that -- but some of them are things that WE CAN CHANGE! I'm glad you're back. emoticon

    emoticon Janey. So glad you got here. I too left losing as much weight as I wanted to for my daughter's wedding and so, I have to look at the wedding pictures and it motivates me to get smaller now. I decided to have a dress made for the wedding. My seamstress tailored a dress to make the most of my size. It was a perfect dress and daughter says she only saw how beautiful I looked that day. I know, you will be beautiful too. Let's do the best we can. Who can expect more than your best? It will be a wonderful day, but boy oh boy, will you be exhausted. LOL SO pick yourself up and get on your foodplan today. emoticon

    You blog really speaks to me. I am having a big problem getting on track again but thanks to TOPS, have not gone totally crazy. I am just yo-yoing but ending up on the + side instead of the minus side. Keep on keeping on Janie.

    Janey, Many of us have been there, done that. You are not alone. But you are back here, and that's a good step. Please forgive yourself and move onward. You really can do this, maybe not in your past goal timeline, but you can do it. We are here for you.

    Sending all the positive vibes I can find your way! It seems to me like you may be harvesting some anger towards yourself. You shouldnt! By posting this blog and getting back on SparkPeople you are telling us all that you are getting ready to change your lifestyle!! Today is emoticon for you again, which means you get a new beginning!! emoticon

    If you're back on your blog, that might mean that you're ready to make some positive changes again! I hope you can find that motivation inside you; I know how hard it can be. As far as your dress goes, I suggest you just focus on finding a dress that makes you feel fantabulous, no matter what the scale says right now.

Almost lost another month...

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

I just checked my last blog & it was on April 1st...what a FOOL I was to not continue blogging. I don't want to bore anyone with all the blessed details as to why I have been missing in action...more like just plain missing...I am running along side the wagon, but I am still hanging on & hanging in there with SP...I DID get up this A.M. showered & got dressed (no nightgown today) & I DID track my breakfast & lunch foods. It is beautiful outside & I wish that I could get out & ride my recumbent bike, but I'm scared to death to hurt my back...I have quite a few things on my schedule in May & I can't afford to start over with my back. I have made some progress, but I'm not doing the happy dance just yet. My daughter, Jan-Marie is still my #1 Fan & I do appreciate her support & all of my SP friends. I'm convinced that I need to take it ONE DAY AT A TIME, instead of figuring out how many days & how many lbs. I can lose before JM's wedding. Everyone can do just about anything for 24 hours...so THAT my dear friends is my plan today. Take care & thanks for sticking with me on this journey...

I didn't log food for over 2 weeks and did start back today. I did drink my water but didn't keep up with my exercise. My excuse--just plain sorry-ness as mama used to say. I have the "can't help it" -it is and really need to get my act together too.

Don't give up, just flip and start over. Lately, I am doing a lot of "flips."

    Yes, just keep on keeping on. Even baby steps are fine when hanging on. Patience is the toughest part of this journey.

Breaking My Rules...

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Here it is past 10:30 P.M. & I decided to get on my laptop real quick...my rule is to be OFF the laptop by 9:00, to improve my chances of getting to sleep. I weighed in this morning, tracked my food all day & attempted two short walks. My back is a wee bit better. I would love to get on my 3-wheeled bike, but I really want to be more comfortable moving before I try that particular exercise. ANYway, I so appreciate all the love & supportive comments from my many SP friends. Take care...

Home Alone...

Saturday, March 29, 2014

HEY EVERYONE...haven't been blogging much, but I have been tracking my food & weighing in. I am still having trouble with my back & don't feel able to exercise. I'm being very careful, just walking around in my house...Husband & daughter are out of town but will be home tomorrow. Time to myself has been good, but I am looking forward to having them back home again....Don't have much else to say...working on my short term goals. Hope that all of you are having a great weekend, filled with love & laughter. Take care...

    Enjoy your weekend and hope your back gets better mine is Arthritis so it won't get better but have learnt to live with it as I don't have problems walking it when I go to bed and lying on my back it hurts.

    Take care of your back Janey and just do what you can. Walking around the house counts as exercise too, maybe you can walk for 5 or 10 minutes at a time. I love some "alone" time but it is rare. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay
