THATSOKAY's SparkPeople Blog THATSOKAY's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Wow <img src=""> This is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. I also had a picture taken by my hubby and when I saw it, I wanted to run and hide! Pictures don't lie and my picture was some fat girl. It was me! I am much heavier looking than I thought. <em>46</em> Well, that did it. I am going to be very serious about how I use up my time. I haven't been exercising lately and I had stopped writing my food intake. When that picture w... Tue, 2 Jul 2013 22:05:46 EST Not very happy I am noticing every other week I can't eat enough calories. My fibromyalgia has been flaring up and it makes my body hurt everywhere. So, when I exercise I actually loosen up and feel a little better. I know I am not going to meet my goal on time. But I will meet my goal even if it takes longer. <em>244</em> Sat, 4 May 2013 22:56:48 EST hmmm... I really don't think I will lose what I want in the time I wanted. I am now taking calcium, vitamins, and a soy protein powder. That's because my eating is not cutting it. My exercising isn't cooperating with me. My fibromyalgia isn't helping either. My mind says keep going and my body has been having problems and makes it where I can't eat or exercise a day or two out of the week. I am going to keep going and not let those days of chronic pain upset me. I just thank God I have been doing exe... Mon, 1 Apr 2013 14:48:20 EST This is Okay... Well, I think I'm beginning to get in the habit of eating the right amount of calories. I actually get hungry in the morning and I eat breakfast! I can't remember ever eating breakfast. I am happy to say that I ate enough protein for the first time today! <em>496</em> <em>106</em> <em>4</em> I look forward to exercising everyday. I love how this Sparkpeople is helping me change my lifestyle. I am noticing little changes in how I feel. This is just amazing. <em>126</em> Fri, 8 Mar 2013 22:45:23 EST Why Does This Happen? Since I have been finally eating the right amount of calories, I've been exercising (minus a day or two), and I didn't lose weight. <em>198</em> I think that's okay...I can just work harder and try to drink more water. I can say it's a bummer I didn't lose anything. <em>46</em> This next week will hopefully be different. Sun, 3 Mar 2013 23:29:26 EST Getting Frustrated I thought I could just keep exercising but nooo. Trying to concentrate on eating the right amount of food and exercise right has just been so depressing. I feel like I'll never see 140 lbs.on the scale <em>193</em> ever again! <em>198</em> - It is freezing outside and a perfect time to exercise again. So I shall burn more calories in a moment. I must take the poodles for an outside visit <em>338</em> <em>338</em> those represent my poodles. <em>31</em> I hope everyone feels great... Thu, 28 Feb 2013 19:02:39 EST I'm Just Saying... <em>416</em> I have been really concentrating on doing the exercises correctly and eating enough calories. My body feels muscles I never knew I had. Now I am ready to do research on different types of food I can eat. I do wish I could lose more weight than I am. <BR> <em>244</em> I started spring cleaning my house early this year. My flowers are blooming since our winter is weird this year. I think I burn a whole lot of calories when deep cleaning my home. I have so much more energy I ... Wed, 20 Feb 2013 22:35:53 EST Hardly Ever Enough <em>265</em> <em>370</em> <em>496</em> I just don't eat enough calories. I did meet my goal of eating enough for three days in a row! I was so proud of myself. <em>250</em> I am learning how to eat healthy, I exercise and I don't lose much weight. But that's okay. I feel more energetic and I am doing pretty dang good with the video exercises that were hard to do at first. You know I was kind of down when I started this blog. Now that I typed the things I am succeeding with I am m... Tue, 12 Feb 2013 22:41:42 EST We'll See 3rd day in a row I consumed enough calories <em>345</em> Well I am worn out and ready for bed. Good night all. Sat, 9 Feb 2013 23:49:26 EST I am so full Well, I am proud to say I had met my goal for eating the right amount of calories for two days in a row <em>190</em> I really feel too full. I just need to go to bed. I exercised for a while, did the dishes, then washed my poodles. Boy my body hurts. Must go now. Night all. Fri, 8 Feb 2013 22:47:53 EST Go Me I am proud to say I ate the right amount of calories by eating the right foods yesterday. My son and I walked the three dogs to the post office and it started snowing! What a beautiful sight. I didn't get in much exercise yesterday, so I made up for it today. I exercised this morning and that made my body feel so good! I wake up stiff and sore and the way to feel better is by moving my body around. I call it oiling up my bones <em>24</em> <BR> So now I want to look up recipes that will h... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 17:38:40 EST Getting Closer I almost ate the amount of calories I am supposed to eat! <em>4</em> I am working on the protein since I don't get enough. I haven't lost any more weight since the first week. The bright side is I haven't gained any weight. <em>244</em> I am doing the exercises right (some of them) and I am feeling good. <em>224</em> <BR> Mon, 28 Jan 2013 22:31:41 EST Getting Busy to Get in Shape I actually ate enough calories yesterday. I also exercised more than usual because I am trying to have a nice routine. I am scheduling my exercising time for the morning..since my hubby and son sleep late. I do have my upstairs extra room I can exercise in if they wake up early. <BR> I feel so stuffed from all the food and water yesterday. I have this obsession to weigh myself everyday. I sure am glad today's weight isn't the my weigh in day. I have faith continuing the exercises could help. ... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 12:01:23 EST Too Thin or Too Fat Okay, here is what's on my mind: When I was 40 I weighed 130 lbs. At 30 I was 130 lbs. Age 20 and below I got all the way to size "0"! I had to really search for that size back then and when I found something it wasn't cheap! Stress makes me not wanting to eat. It was hard for me to gain weight so when I was with my husband now he honestly force fed me, one bite at a time. Girls didn't like me because I was skinnier than them. What wasn't known was how hard it was and is to eat. If people on... Thu, 17 Jan 2013 12:41:52 EST Busy, Busy, Busy This morning was freezing! I started making my spare room into my craft and workout room. I am really excited about this. Today going up and down my stairs was the most exercise I accomplished. I missed out on my walk yesterday and today. Tomorrow I have a plan to go for a longer walk. My body don't do so well when it comes to jogging and running. I have to build up to that. My fibromyalgia makes things difficult but if I don't move very much, I would be stuck and totally sore. I am doing mo... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 00:14:44 EST What a Wonderful Day Excitement is in the air! <em>104</em> First of all, God has created a beautiful day. <em>243</em> The tree branches were covered with ice and the sun would shine through the clouds. The result of that was the ice had colors reflecting off the sun. <em>380</em> Second, I am proud to say I lost two pounds. It is nice to see that all the hard work I am doing has really helped me out. Third, both my poodles are brushed and my piano is dusted. With all the stuff on the piano. I have noticed... Sun, 13 Jan 2013 18:21:58 EST Feeling Much Better Since I found this site about a week ago, my son and I have been walking together. He is a 23 year old adult. He actually exercised with me at 10:00 p.m. Now if I can get him to exercise with me, maybe I'll do more. I am very proud to say that I feel better after the workouts. <BR> At first I joined quite a few sparkteams, which overwhelmed me. Now I straightened everything out and I stayed with the one team for now. I plan on working hard daily to get on the right track. <BR> Time for bed.... Sat, 12 Jan 2013 00:35:49 EST I Just Don't Know... Today is not that great of a day. I didn't do the exercises yesterday and so far I did my walking only today. So I will just do the exercises tonight. I am not hungry and I am tired of being an overweight under eater. I just learned that saying today. It was a person on this site and I want to hear from that friend again. I don't remember the name of the person. Sorry for the complaining but it does make me feel a little better. Thu, 10 Jan 2013 19:24:55 EST Just Fabulous I woke up early this a.m. and thought " my goodness, I sure am sore!" This is day 4 and I was not sure if I was going to walk and excersize today.:( Feeling guilty for even thinking such thoughts, I decided after my dr. appointment I hope I will do my daily walk. I am starting slow but my walks are getting longer and my pace is getting faster. I did my walk and now I must observe the Day 4 bootcamp video. <BR> Must go fix some food plus I can see that I'll be excersizing later tonight. Must ... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 19:48:45 EST Let the Journey Begin... I have been thinking about blogging for quite a while. Thanks to Sparkpeople I am writing my very first blog. I am enjoying learning new things and being more energetic. I never go anywhere but I am starting to walk to my post office hopefully everyday. Rainy days will be the exception. Maybe I will take my poodles for the walk too. <BR> For a while I have been hoping to fix my teeth. Can't afford that so now I'll concentrate on getting in shape. <em>244</em> Good thing I have stairs, due ... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 19:46:27 EST
