I'm Still Here....

Sunday, February 03, 2013

it is time to get all my sh*t back together (i don't know. are we supposed to cover up the obvious spelling?)
i weigh about what i did last january. this seems to be my acceptable weight. it is not. 233 is not acceptable to anyone anywhere. unless you are 6.8' tall, i guess. but, that is what i am.

i rested on my laurels long enough. i have gone a year saying, "i lost 35 pounds" and it is great that i have kept it off. for sure. but, now i have to move down to the next acceptable weight. and i can learn to stay there for awhile. then move down again. etc, etc, etc.

ahh, sigh. losing weight is so much work.

    i love the pic about "loving yourself" instead of being skinny. skinny is totally overrated. being happy with myself is farrrrrrrr cooler.

    That is super positive, to lose 35 pounds and keep it off for a year. That is a feat in itself. I like your perspective. What is your next acceptable range? emoticon

    A year is a long plateau. I hope you get moving again. Good luck.

    I'm in the same boat. Lost weight, and now have sat there for almost a year. It's time to get serious about this but I keep putting it off. Time to get moving. Let's MOVE!!!

    YOU KNOW HOW to loose weight, you've done it! It is hard. You can reach your goal.
The reward for denying yourself food pleasures is the empowering feeling of control in your life.

    Baby steps are easy.

Just don't try to do everything at once.

Small changes become habits.

Like cut out soda, don't eat after 7, and that awful word..exercise

And remember we are all going through the same thing, and we're here to go through it with you emoticon
