November - The Month I DON'T Want To Remember!!!

Friday, November 30, 2012


I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I had a great time with my family!

December is a new beginning! I WILL make the necessary changes to move forward!

When Marlie saw the balloons and streamers this morning, she yelled "BIRTHDAY!" It was so cute. Here is a pic of her in her new skirt.

    Hey Susan, I have a saying posted on a card on my hall wall that I love. It reminds when when I do fall, and put back on a bunch of weight, that it's not the end of the world. The saying is" you don't drown by falling in the water (AKA falling off the wagon), you drown by staying there" I love that you had a date (12/1) to get back on track. Did it work? Are you focused again? Are you prepared to deal with another derailment?
    I have been putting some weight back on too, and not real happy since I've been stuck around the same weight for over 6 months. So putting some back on was a real bad thing. So right after Thanksgiving I set new goals, and refocused myself. Well, a week into it, I got sick. Real sick. Today is the first day I've really been able to get up off the couch. So the depression kicked in with the illness, and I've been taking comfort in food. Who knows how much I've really gained back. BUT, I will not let that deter me. I'll just have to start over again at the higher weight when I am physically able to get going again.
    So you have a plan, and I am so happy for you. You have done such a great job. Remember we all have set backs. We all fall in the water. It's about what you do when you fall in that counts. So make sure you have a back up plan for next time you fall. :) If you want, I'll give you a call if you disappear. :)

    Marlie is so cute. Hope her Birthday was awesome. November was not my best month either. It's a new month, getting ready for a new year, and we can do this.

    I'm so glad you don't want to give up. I have such a hard time getting off the computer and doing something too. I have a severe lack of motivation even though I can't stand looking at myself in the mirror. It's hard but it is possible. I saw something on sparkpeople, can't remember where but it said that 30 minutes of exercising is 4% of our day, it seems so little yet we have to push ourselves to do it. We can do it though, I believe in you!!

    I feel the frutstration as well. I have to comment to you because as I was listening to you talk about November and I was wondering how I let November get to me I realized the emotion I have been denying myself and there it is. This realization will help me come to terms with this emotion and move on. Thank you for helping to trigger that for me.

    Anyway, about you! You will do this. I think losing weight and making the healthy choices is the same as other "addictions". I gave up smoking many times and then finally one time it stuck. I hadn't thought that that time was going to stick any better than the other zillions of times but it did. Losing weight and making the right choices food wise is the same for me. It is going to stick one of these times and this time just might be it! When the wrong choices make me feel so awful, I will start realizing that taking refuge in late night games ( I do this as well) and food is not really what I want to be doing. I would rather be taking dance lessons and enjoying myself more.

    Just some thoughts. Thanks.

    My girl is such a cutie! emoticon to Marlie! BIRTHDAY!!
    I'm with you, Susan, I've been coasting this month. I lost, but only 3 lbs. because I gained and had to relose 5# in the middle of the month. It seems like you and StillLoves and I and some others who have commented have let down lately. I'm going to set public goals for wt. loss and exercise. Maybe if I have to report every week like some of my friends do, it will keep my nose to the grindstone. I will need to lose 7 lbs in the next 3.5 weeks to meet my Jingle Bell goal. It's only possible if I work hard. I've let down on the amount of exercise and the intensity. We need this wake-up call.
    It was a nice surprise seeing your vlog.
    I love you,
    Mom

    I know how you feel about the weight gain. I have done this over and over. It really is a stress-er and it gets to be like a snowball rolling down hill. I even have spent a lot of time trying to get started back on track and it take days or months to get back. I even would "give up" and it just got me to the point that I felt like I was going to die sick and fat. I had to get to a low of lows to pick myself up and get back to doing what I needed to do for myself. I am thankful that I have not had a stoke or heart attack before I did come to my senses. My daughter at about 35 yrs of age did have the heart attach and she still is in denial that she is as big as she is. She knows she is over weight, but she will ask me ," Am I as big as that women?", I look and She is two times bigger. I see she does not see herself correctly. I did not lie to her and was trying to do it in a nice way, but the last time she asked me that, I told her, she needed to get into reality and really take a look at her self in the mirror. Well, I quit saying anything or talking to her about weight.
    I know i had to of been in denial at some point for me to let myself get to 350 lbs at one time. I had to get so unhappy about myself and so down on myself that I didn't have anywhere to go but up. It awful that we have to go through that, but sometimes that Is what it takes. When I joined Sparkpeople my title on my page was "I don't want to Give up!" I heard you say the same thing, so I believe you are ready to do something to improve your life now. I know you can do it. You have so much knoweldge and insight about yourself. You can do it!!!! We can do it!!! I know that I will be seeing you up and on the right track very soon. Take care of yourself. Hugs, Judy

    You can do this! December is your month! Take it one day at a time or one hour at a time if a day is too hard. Celebrate those little successes! Can't wait to hear what your Christmas present is.

    I would like to put November to rest as soon as possible also. I usually get what I got in November in Feb... which makes me thankful for the shortness of the month but the extra few days of November has truly drawn out the crap... I want to feel healthy again, I CLAIM TODAY DECEMBER day -1 instead of November 30th. Okay? LOL
    let's put it behind us.
    Forget about it.
    Move forward to a new month with all new opportunities.

    emoticon I had a very rough November too. I was sick for Thanksgiving, didn't eat anything to speak of, have gone to the pool only once, and I am finding it very difficult to get back on the exercise wagon. As you say December is a new month, I expect it to be an emotional month, it usually is. My Dad passed December 28, my birthday is New Years Eve. I am determined to be merry and not a Scrooge.

    We are going to begin a New Year. It will be time to make New Year Resolutions. All we can do is pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off and get back on track. We both know what to do and we are both capable of doing it. We can do it, we will do it and December will rock. 2013 will be the greatest year for the both of us.

    Look out world, 2013 will see two new sexy babes.--Marle is adorable. Can't call her sexy, yet.

    I have lots of thoughts, so here goes.
    emoticon : Marlie looks beautiful, I thank you for sharing that picture with us, she's too cute for her own good. I'm glad she had a fabulous birthday and I am excited she will have a party with her BFF soon! emoticon

    emoticon : November just sucked the big you know what, I am with you on that my friend!
    emoticon : I look forward to seeing your December goals. emoticon

    emoticon : You tease!! I want to know what your big xmas gift is, but I guess I will wait. *SIGHS*

    emoticon : I don't want to go into great details in this since it's a comment and it's public, but can I just say I never WORRY about you when you aren't around. I know you well enough to know that you are too strong to give up, but I will say that I miss you like crazy when you aren't on here. I know that sounds very selfish, but it is true. I love your vlogs, I love your post, heck, I just love you! I am so glad that I am able to talk to you outside of here and that I am lucky enough to call you my friend, but nothing beats seeing your pretty face on a blog! emoticon : You need to get this weight off (you cracked me up when you said "and if I haven't said it"), and I need to bust through this plateau and get serious again. I have been treading water this past month, I am ready to start fresh with you in December and we are going to get our habits back up to par because we are emoticon !
