Wed, 20 Mar 2013 12:48:55 EST eating more when I'm sick http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5241575 I have a serious question for y'all and this may vary from person to person but when I'm sick or not feeling very well I tend to eat a lot more....I know that others tend to eat a lot less when they're not feeling good or are sick but I do eat more....so the question is this: Why do I eat more when I am sick/not feeling well? and less when I'm well and happy? Thu, 7 Feb 2013 12:46:00 EST Forgetting how exercise felt like http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5211505 I forgot how it feels to exercise because I have been lazy for a bit and today I walked up to the market to buy some stuff for dinner upon arriving back I said to my mother "damn I forgot how it feels to exercise" because the back of my legs felt like they were on fire. my mom says "take one of my muscle relaxers" in which I responded " no mom I need to feel this, remember no pain no gain" and she said "yeah". the thing is I only walked .8 miles not that far. Thu, 17 Jan 2013 12:21:32 EST Try Try Again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5191646 Ok so I have been to the doctor lately and I am up to 390...feels like high school all over again.

Thu, 30 Aug 2012 00:58:20 EST gaining it all back and feeling down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5018631 so embarrassing...i lost down to 337 and within two months gained it all back...I don't know what to do anymore. I eat right I exercise daily and still not lost weight. my mom told me to try this one thing that she tried for her diabetes and it worked on her but i haven't found the book yet and don't know what to do! it's strange too I thought being in a warmer climate would help my weight loss and it hasn't Thu, 16 Aug 2012 21:06:30 EST my big move http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4823934 Okay so I move from a rather cold state that made me hurt so much to a hot state that I can't go out without putting sunscreen on. I wish I could find an in between state where it stays 70 all year round. I sound like a broken record with my complaints about my health so what can I do? perhaps some of you can enlighten me or say hey wanna go for a walk/bike ride with me? gee now that's an idea get a bike! Fri, 6 Apr 2012 22:43:35 EST update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4690455 okay so last year wasn't such a good year and neither is this year february 3rd and 6th I will be in Ann Arbor for surgery...bye bye teeth(or most of them anyways)...yes I will unfortunately be wearing dentures for a long long time. and the doctors say I will be on a liquid diet for 2 weeks...any ideas? my friend is going to help me out by making me lots of smoothies...I also want to eat lots of soup but am thinking about making it myself and not eating that canned stuff they call soup....yea... Thu, 19 Jan 2012 01:13:10 EST Failure http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4320665 I've abandoned my post once again...failure set in. I haven't been on since march 8th and have failed to keep up with the site. Fortunately I have however been keeping up with trying to get healthy not to the extent of losing wieght however. I will be on here once again hopefully I will keep focus on losing weight again. Fri, 24 Jun 2011 18:09:10 EST Feeling better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4076796 So I went to community mental health to see if they could help me with my disability and my depression. The lady said that I would be bored with their services and that I could probably teach some of the other patients. I was like are you kidding me? No she was serious. anyways so I guess that is good news. Oh and she said I was a good person to be around. Hahaha man oh man that was great to hear. She made my day just that much brighter Tue, 8 Mar 2011 17:27:26 EST wanting to scream http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4074161 This is embarrassing to say the least. I went to an obgyn due to feminine issues and when they weighed me I about cried. This whole time I thought I was losing weight I had gained some. I was about 368 the last time I weighed before this and this time I was 378. However, I knew I had gained a lot between november and now because it looked it but then I had started the routine. I cannot always keep up with this but I am going to sure try harder. Oh by the way I will start working out on the wi... Mon, 7 Mar 2011 19:38:16 EST Healthy food can taste good too! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4049098 So yesterday I was at the store and was grocery shopping with my best friend/boyfriend´s mom and my boyfriend when I came upon a dilemma. The dilemma was that I wanted to buy some cereal but I could not figure out what I wanted. Normally I look at health food and go eww no thanks! however yesterday it was a whole different ball game. Normally I am not into all bran cereal or grape nuts but on the middle shelf was a thing of all bran and I was fighting myself on which cereal to get. It was eit... Sat, 26 Feb 2011 10:36:33 EST Back from sick leave http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4033299 Been sick for about two weeks and now I am back. I should have came back yesterday but my head was still not in the game. My energy is soaring and my nerves are somewhat back to normal lol. I had a lot to think about while I was sick and most the time that thinking was in bed, with a hot cup of coffee or a hot totty or a cup of water. Now focusing on getting into shape and yes I did a lot of things yesterday. Thanks to everyone for your patience and be looking for my blogs again please. Even ... Sun, 20 Feb 2011 19:54:07 EST Sorry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4019941 Been sick and too weak and too tired to do anything...I know this is not a positive thing today I am terribly sorry. I feel like my head is about to cave in my throat feels like someone is sitting on it and its hard to swallow...taking antibiotics and mucinex. all I can do is sleep or sit down cause if i stand too long it hurts. I am terribly sorry everyone. Cannot even concentrate very much. Tue, 15 Feb 2011 14:16:07 EST shockingly I fit into a smaller shirt size http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4007647 I have had a lot of issues in the past few years with fitting even into a 26/28 shirt size even in pants so I upped my clothes sizes to 30/32 and recently have found out one of the shirts is a 22/24 but also a little too short for me. So if I was to wear a smaller size it still would have to be a womans tall Thu, 10 Feb 2011 18:32:27 EST better today and tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4002060 Well things have been okay today! I mean I did wear myself down quite a bit cleaning house today but that is because I got tired of seeing the fridge look as cruddy as it did. I swept the kitchen floor as best I could. My guilty pleasure is that I made a German chocolate cake for dessert tonight as my boyfriend cooked dinner. I made sure everyone(that is five people in the family) had another slice for tomorrow. tomorrow I will do as I do every evening and do the spark thing lol. that is what... Tue, 8 Feb 2011 19:40:19 EST wanting advice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3999759 Until recently nothing has stopped me from exercising and I mean nothing I have been working out pretty much and keeping active. Unfortunately all this activity has lead to other problems that I cannot begin to tell you(feminine issues). I want to work out more I even pumped up my exercise time so that I can actually get a workout rather than just about 30 minutes I have upped it to 45(yeah I know big difference *rolls eyes*) but then after all of it I did not leave the bathroom for about twe... Mon, 7 Feb 2011 23:41:17 EST My apologies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3950782 Sorry everyone I have been off my game and forgot twice to put in my food and exercise stats. May be an excuse but I injured myself by doing way too much at one time and my boyfriend´s mom got on to me about it so she was helpful. I no there is no excuse to not get this done and once again apologize Sat, 22 Jan 2011 17:51:20 EST Grateful that my boyfriends mom introduced me to this site http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3931125 Today was a success I had been doing not so good at the whole calorie thing but today I did good! Also had been told today that my boyfriends family sees an improvement! so Im grateful that his mom introduced me to this site. now maybe I can get justin himself into doing this. Sun, 16 Jan 2011 18:58:28 EST music is power http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3928199 okay so lately I have been up to speed on doing exercises but what i find that keeps me going and moving a lot more than I had been is christian music I listen to it everyday now. One thing that is wrong with the picture is the calories but at least I did good yesterday with going just over 100 of em...better than I had been doing right? so if anyone is reading this find some music that keeps you up and moving it will help you out a lot more. Sat, 15 Jan 2011 17:56:06 EST somewhat better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3926123 Okay I did not do too bad today I think anyways. Not like I have been doing. tomorrow is another day and I hope I do better. However, I have been doing a lot more exercise than I had been doing. walking, dancing around the house when noone is home, and using my dumbbells during exercise. good thing bonnie got that exercise ball it can come in handy. May be getting a pedometer soon. also planning on getting some exercise videos specifically perhaps dancing and walking ones. Fri, 14 Jan 2011 22:05:23 EST i vow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3924527 Currently I have been struggling to lose wieght and to cut back on my calories well I now vow to cut back on a regular basis and to keep up on the exercising to prove it I will keep up with this everyday and I will blog on my successes and failures. last night I overdid it completely too much temptation in front of me. well no more!!
