Week 66...weigh in...

Happy Mothers Day!!!

Hi Sparkies,

No change in weight this week from last.

I have been very depressed and sad at start of week and was way below on my Calories, under 1200 on 5 days, so my body says "hey we better hang on to this for a while!!!"

But with some kind comments on SP and DH being extra kind and compassionate!!! I have rallied again. My biggest hurdle in life is 'worrying about things I can do nothing about'. As soon as I let go of the worrying I felt a lot better.

So I asked Bec DD to take some new photos of me in the Mother's Day purchases I made last week courtesy of DS. (When I got home last week he asked if I had fun using the card? Lovely man he is!!) She did makeup and hair as well. It was fun.

Then we did a comparison photo with 2011 and now together so I could see that "I am not that size any more" as she is always telling me. Thank the Lord for daughters.:) :)

I keep going back to it to have another look. emoticon

So a great week all in all, I find I am changing within and without so it's all good.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and making comments it's great to be a part of such a wonderful group of people.

Hope your coming week is full of sunshine!!! emoticon

    One Famous Dr. named OZ says to maintain your body weight take 12 X your current weight. If you are doing a lot of calorie burning with exercise, the 1200 may be too low. Try eating more for one week or two...maybe I have said something about it before...but it works!
    Look at how far you have come!! What a difference!!! Looking fantastic! Don't get too stressed if you don't have a calorie loss every week! And you will hit plateau, that is the way of things with our bodies, even my Dr. told me that recently! Hang in there! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for telling me your gasoline prices! Yikes! And I thought we were high in the cost of it! emoticon

    OMG! I didn't know they were the same person. I thought perhaps the 1st photo was your mother. You're doing great. As for the weigh-in, I agree with MJLuvsAnimals - never go under 1200 calories per day and certainly not 5 in a row. Your body doesn't like that.

    Happy Mother's day :) I think you have a couple of real good kids there, thoughtful and kind.

    Pictures in new clothes do help get past the mental hurdle of what you think you look like. Post those side by side pictures in a place that you will see every day to remind yourself that you are a new person, not beholden to the thoughts of the past.

    Your metabolism thinks your playing tricks on it, by not eating enough calories, most any of your advisors in the nutritional field will say not to go below the 1200 because it affects your metabolism and then the weight loss doesn't happen.
    There are some days I am too full, but am only at 2/3 of my 1200 goal. I force myself somehow to eat what I need, because I don't want all the effort I have put in, to backfire on me.
    Please try to get that 1200 in. Your doing so good!!!
