You all planted seeds within me I want to tend them so they to can sprout with newness
Sunday, April 13, 2014
The last I posted was in February, I was reading so many other blog's thinking oh WOW I need to do what they are doing to meet my goals. You know what I did I sat here in the comfy of my home all winterreading and eating and non exercising ,my husband shouts DO YOU FEEL THE BURN !!!
I get up in the night to go to the bath room and get something to eat. I cry secretly within myself, become angry with myself, all the while smiling for the world and screaming on the inside.
I have an appointment with a Doctor that deals with weight and eating ,was told many successes come from her office. When I called the receptionist and I had a talk, she told me it is all up to me, that the Doctor can only do so much that it is my choice .She told me the people that make it are the ones that worked for it and truly want it.
My husband told me the rate I am going I will climb to 200 soon. I fight with myself every day for control. So many of you put so much into your fight and lazy me just nods my head saying yes I am going to fight this also .
Winter is now passed, the birds are singing,the once brown grass is showing blades of green,the shoots of flowers are starting to push though the good earth, and the buds are forming on the barren trees. I to want to be like the forth coming Spring with newness!!

You absolutely can do this - but you will have to make a commitment and a promise to yourself that you are going to do what is best for your health and well being - not just the weight issue. Bobbi got me going on the Fast Metabolism Diet and it is a truly great eating plan - not a diet, per se. I lost my 5% in the Spring Challenge with it! It does require cooking, but the food is good and healthy and you are never humgry and you lose weight! It's kind of like magic!
Do this for yourself - to be the BEST you there could be. YOU CAN DO THIS!

I SO hear you on this blog! I have to tell you the Fast Metabolism Diet really changed my entire life! It's so true as Mexgal said...you HAVE to get sugar OUT of your diet.
Do you know that sugar is said to actually be FIVE times MORE addictive than cocaine? You'd NEVER put that illegal drug into your body so you really have to think about sugar in the same light!
I absolutely avoid sugar at all costs and it's HARD because it's lurking EVERYWHERE and in EVERY thing!
If you eat normally and have your 2 snacks as the FMD recommends you are NEVER hungry...in fact...most of the time you are wondering how you can POSSIBLY eat everything that is listed on the diet.
I will warn you...cooking is imperative...but if I can do it...the gal that HATES cooking almost as much as she hates exercising...it CAN be done.
Hugs to you and think of yourself as a beautiful and valuable object...you are only as beautiful on the outside as what you put inside yourself...I'll be cheering you on!

Oh, Judy! Your words hit home with me --- some for how it used to be with me & some for how it still tends to be in my world. Still, I can now look back & see the progress (although quite slow) that has been made. Looking back is a good position to view such things from. I am truly quite pleased that I have managed to achieve to date --- of course, I couldn't have gotten to this point without the love & support of my Abba Father & my beloved MrV, along with that of several friends.
I hope that things have clicked for you & that you are enjoying being in a good place for you --- with progress adding up to what you hope for.
God bless us both as we continue to work toward being the very best we can be!

you know I love you! I love you even more now after reading this and knowing that you were so honest and forthright. I know this must have been hard for you to write...to tell it like it is.
We all know that ultimately the decision is up to us to to the right thing.
My biggest suggestion if you want it is to treat food like drugs. The food with sugar, fat(the bad kind) and salt are addictive. Once I went "cold turkey" and stopped eating them and especially processed foods, my body really did stop craving them. Trust me, it's hard in the beginning as the detoxing and cravings will drive you crazy. But if you can purge your house of all packaged food and only eat healthy natural food I know you will have an remarkable "rebirth". Again it isn't easy. I am helping my DIL and just ordered 3 new books...now I haven't read them yet but one that really interests me is how the junk food industry works hard to addict everyone...it's all about profit.
copy this into your browser and you can see one of the books I ordered. I also like to continue to read things like this to keep me on track.
You can do this. There will always be good times and bad but for me it's now been a year without sugar, too much salt, bad fats and such. feel free to look at my shared food logs as well to get ideas if you like. My diet is so satisfying. And don't get me wrong every once in a while I will have a GF all natural pizza or some treat...but never sugar.
I ordered a 12 day sugar detox diet as well for my DIL and I to check out.
have a great day.

It is all mind over matter and if you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Only you can control what goes into your mouth. You need to get out of that chair and walk. Start with five minutes. March in place during the commercials. Just move your bodies. I have a fitbit/zip and love the little gadget. I keep it in my pocket and it tracks my steps and distance and calories burned. If you don't walk 10,000 steps everyday, you are sedentary.
I have only walked that many steps a few times and it really isn't all that hard but got too comfy over the winter. I have hills to walk down and back up and that is a workout in itself. When I go shopping, I park at the far edge of the lot and you'd be surprised how the steps count up.

Weigh every day--write your weight on the calendar each morning. Then you can really see a trend. At least, that surely helps me.

First and foremost, at least in my book, is to do a writing assignment: What am I so afraid of that keeps me from doing right with myself. You'll see a lot of garbage come out. This all needs to be looked at, gently smiled at and then burned! We give power to the thoughts, so we need to see what we have empowered. Arguing and fighting and ignoring simply empowers them.
As to your DH: How supportive! NOT!!!! So glad I don't have that to contend with. But, you have made choices and now it's up to you to show yourself (and him) that you indeed have what it takes (you do!) to get fit and slender.
P.S. He will beitch moan and groan about the new you too -- guaranteed!
You may tell me he is a fine man and you two have a great relationship, etc., etc. I have differing viewpoints on both.
We are here to support you in your healthier choices.
