The Real Me is Back

Friday, August 03, 2012

I have been going through hell for the past 6 months and it played havoc with my emotions. I have for 2 people I really cared about in January and February and now my aunt last month. So my emotions are wearing very thin. I have to get over them one way or another but hold them in my heart for ever. People say that when you lose someone close to you that you go insane well that was me when I lost my best friend in February of this year. She was there when I needed someone to talk to so now I have no one that is close to where I live to talk to.

This is the real me bouncing back from that and I plan to get my priorities straight when it comes to SparkPeople. I will be getting myself ready for a new challenge in my life and that is losing 35 lbs before the end of September if it kills me. I have a vision that I want to focus on and that any distractions from my family will throw me off.

Here is my plan to see this challenge through.
Starting on Monday August 6,


1 cup of milk
1 bowl of special K granola cereal
1 piece of toast
1 tsp. of honey
1 orange or apple


1- 4 ounce glass of orange juice
1 bowl of veggie soup
1/2 peanut butter sandwich
1 slice of canolope melon


1- 4 ounce glass of water with 1 tsp. vinegar and honey in it
1 small baked potato
1 piece of pork tenderloin the size of a deck of cards
1 to 2 slices or honey dew melon
1/2 cup of steamed veggies

2 sliced of celery
2 tsp. philly cream cheese

I know I can stick to this and so far I plan to stick to it because my health is more important then eating junk food. I have exactly 2.5 months to lose the 25 to 35 lbs so I have to stick to this diet.
Each week I will step on the scale and take a picture of it so that you can see the amount that is says on it. I will also take and get my son to take a picture of me every 2 weeks so you can see what I look like as I lose the weight.

Wish me luck as I start this new challenge I have set for myself.

    I often still talk to those who have past that were dear to me, i write letters to them but never send them, put them in a box and read them back later, do things we used to do together in memory of them, these are just process to never forget them but to remain sane, it worked for me. I have loved a missed some of the greatest people. But it isn't the end, and i bet they don't like to see you suffering because of them being gone, with their strength of knowing them, find the courage within yourself to push on, really think what would they say to now if they saw how you were doing, take that into account and go for it.

    You can do it! We're the ones in control of our own selves. I feel like you've sparked me because of your determination! I've been lacking motivation. So thank you and I'm wishing you the very best with your challenge and with you having the blues too. Your step of writing a blog like this is sooo good! emoticon emoticon
