sometimes you just need to sit back and think

Saturday, March 17, 2012

This is what I have been doing.. I weigh most everyday... so I know I am eating ok.. I have learned this over the years... that NO sugar is not part of my life style.. and fried foods are bad for us.. we all know that... we are all working very hard to change our livestyles so we can be healthy and strong... by the way.. No you do not have to be 110 pounds to be healthy... I personally would look like the living dead at that weight... actually I would probably trip over body parts if I didn't have them strapped to the body if I were to be that weight... so a healthy weight to me is what ever you can maintain and feel good at...

For me that would be 135.. the girls are still there... the behind is still up where it belongs and the clothes look good... problem is getting there.. hmmm so I went from a very active life style to a pretty sedate life style.. so I either get a job that requires me to burn a few hundred calories a day more or I lower my calorie intake... thats simple math... problem is living with it... I know the horrors of going to far below the daily suggested requirement... and I am living in a body that knows all too well what going over that requirment could mean...

So for me... and this may or maynot pertain to you... but for me... I need to cut back on what I WANT... and what I GET.... I love salads... yesterday we had a salad for lunch.. so yummy... and I realized I really miss my 'lunch salads' I didn't loose weight all that fast doing my lunches this way... but I felt better.. I stopped because of dental problems.. the teeth are still not up to 100% but I hope they get there... I have 4 weeks till I see the dentist again... lets just say.. I have been in more pain than if I were to deliver a baby a day for 2 weeks straight... I'm on the mend... and salads are back in my diet.. YAY... so back to my plan... I need to keep the daily calories low... so I can eat what hubby fixes for dinner... at least until I can make the changes at work to be home to cook our dinner meals.. hubby try's but his idea of a fast quick dinner is Pizza... only one slice but that one slice is full of salt and processed meats... non of which are any good for us...

I also need to up my activity.. thats a no brainer but seem so hard to accomplish.. so how will I do this.. I will get me another pedometer... by the way I love the Omron... the others I have don't measure the steps as acurate as I want them to be.. also I can make a mental note to increase my steps each day... I did this before and worked like a charm...

I can't make it in here every day... so I will make it in here when I can... I cannot stress over this anymore it just hurts my progress... The bottom line is... I have not gained weight since the first of January.. and I have not lost much more than the first 8 pounds... I will.. and I'm not worried... I will be blogging more and I will be charting my progress... I hope every one is having a wonderful weekend.. I hope you all are on track.. and that you find what works for you... Take Care my friends.... Ronie

    I would love to weigh 135 too. I eat a salad every day for lunch. It's my favorite lunch. I need to move more as well though I have been doing better.

    Hi, Ronie!! You will get there; of that I am sure. What I am trying now is staying off the scales. I haven't been on the scales since February 11 and I am not planning to get on it til Easter Sunday. I am staying on track and am hoping that the scales will be good to me. Hitting my goal in October 2010 was great but some how I got away from doing right. This time when I get there, I will stay there!! And I know that you will also!!

  Ronie, I understand and appreciate your comments. Everyday is a struggle for me. I have so many issues going on at once it is a wonder I can remember how to log in here, but I am doing what I can and I have decided not to stress about it because I can't manage anymore stress right now.
We just have to be true to ourselves and not worry about what others say or think. I applaud your committment to yourself and your ability to give yourself permission in some instances and not be too critical of yourself. We can be our own worst enemy and obstacle.
Best wishes to you and your family...enjoy each day.
