Ugh....having a fat day!

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Geeze.... I am sitting here in my size 6 jeans feeling fat! How can that be? A little bloat? Expecting a 25 year old body at age 56? Who knows.

I do know this. I am not fat!

How many of you feel like this on 'fat days'?

I remember when I was pregnant with daughter number 1, I had gained 60# and the doctor told me not to diet until after the baby was born. I was so depressed and crying when I walked out of the office. My mom asked what was wrong and I told her. "What would make you feel better?" she asked. Know what my answer was?

Yeah, that helped...

Things have changed. Now when I feel fat, I endulge differently.

So, it's a fat day. So what? That changes nothing. I have worked hard to be where I am and I have no intent to change my life as it is now.

Track, eat, track, repeat!

Because, in the end, it is all worth it!

    It's funny what games our mind can play...and btw, have you noticed the change in sizes? I'm just back in size 6 jeans too, but they're the same size as 10's from a few years ago!! by the time I really back to size 8, I'll be shopping for 4's....just goes to show the size isn't the measurement, just how you feel! emoticon

Good for you to go to the gym instead of for a sundae. emoticon

    Ah this is so true! It's horrible how our minds can play tricks on us! Yesterday I had a serious fat day, just felt like a big fat blob! This morning, I feel skinny (I'm not skinny, but I feel...normal!). I think what changed my mindset today was deciding to get up, go for an early morning run before work, have a nice shower, make sure I do my hair and make-up nicely and wear a nice outfit. That really helps. Sometimes we just have to put in that little bit more effort to make ourselves feel great.

    Love the Healthy Lifestyle poster!!!!

I had one of those yesterday. . . . a fat day. Must have been water retention ? ? ? Who knows, but it doesn't matter. There's still a whole lot less of me - both poundage and inches - than this time last year. And my health, attitude, energy and stress levels are vastly improved.

I just updated my SparkPage because the Dr's office called me with the results from my labs.

My motto, if I am going to feel fat I will do it at the gym.

    I love hot fudge sundae picture. We use to go to Steak n Shake once during the summer for this growing up. I was upset yesterday about something and instead of eating I did what your last picture said "go to the gym". Thanks for sharing. emoticon
