When I eat with others, I do not just overeat, but I binge eat. <BR> Before I started my new way of life, it was the other way round. I would binge, when I was alone, but now binge eating only occurs, when I am with others. <BR> When I sit in front of a full plate and I am not hungry anymore, I don´t just stop eating (well, that would be the easy way and why should we do that ;)... Sat, 15 Jun 2013 09:07:43 EST I seem older than I am http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5387252 in the last two days people came to me and asked me how old I was. I really don´t understand why that question matters. Today I took a taxi home to my place and I started to talk to him. We started to talk in Hebrew (I am currently in Israel) and then I noticed his Arabic accent, so I started to speak in Arabic with him ( i have been studiing spoken Arabic for about a year now). Out of the blue he just asked me how old I was. So I told him that I was 26. Apparently that was a big surprise for... Wed, 12 Jun 2013 19:15:45 EST One day this dress will fit me.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5305400 Hallo! <BR> <BR> So today was an interesting day. I went through my old closet and decided to throw away all old clothes that I haven´t been wearing for more than one year and that don´t fit me anymore. And of course I stumbled over these clothes, that I kept for the day I might fit into them. <BR> Guess what: This day has come! So I tried them on and I realized one thing. Although I fit into them right now, they still don´t look good on me. So, they are just the wrong clothes. So, if I w... Sat, 30 Mar 2013 13:40:54 EST Fear http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5252787 Hello fellow Sparkpeople! <BR> I have a confession to make. I am worried almost all the time. I am worried to fail in my exams, I am worried of moving to a new city, I am worried of being alone and most of all I am worried to never lose my weight. <BR> I have been on a plateau for a few months now. Ok, honestly, this is what I wanted. I planed not to lose 20kg at once, but to do it step by step. <BR> However since January, I have not lost a single pound and that annoys me and -quelle surp... Sat, 16 Feb 2013 16:03:08 EST cliché http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185560 So this is a blog entry devoting itself to the cliché of a new year being the time for new beginnings. <BR> Last year was amazing. I lost almost 15 kg and I have been able to keep them of for the entire year! That would be the first time that I was able to maintain weight, that I have lost. Why? Because I knew, that I should stick to my diet and workout routine, even after I lost the first 10kg. I am very proud that I did not fall of the wagon and even when I did not eat properly and gained ... Wed, 2 Jan 2013 08:20:52 EST Eating hangover http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5064344 Hi, <BR> <BR> this is a blog that should me remind me on my old mistakes. The reason why I could never lose weight and keep the weight off is because of two reasons: First I might have hit an plateau, although I did everything right and second I was satisfied with my weightloss and just went back to my old habits. This time I am a bit better, I am at a plateau, but I haven´t gained anything yet. <BR> However these old habits are still in me. I was sick for a few weeks now (nothing major ju... Tue, 18 Sep 2012 04:20:11 EST Inner changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4954585 So this week has been interesting. Last weekend I visited my parents house. It was the first time in months that I went there without my boyfriend and I knew it would be very exhausting for me without him. <BR> So I stayed at my parents house for a two days. I usually know that I tend to overeat at my parents house. Not because they are such great cooks or anything, but because I feel such a pressure when I am there, that I don´t know any other help than stuff myself. It was the first time ... Wed, 4 Jul 2012 05:16:02 EST Thinspiration http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4933101 I just saw that today or this week I can add my thinspiration. As far as I understand it is my dream body. Well let´s not be shy and go straight to the top: <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/2/l427554903.jpg"> <BR> yes, I know, this is not really achievable. As they said on modern family: She looks like was made in a mathlab. <BR> I think she is about my height, but 46lbs lighter. I will not go for that. I also like this actress. She also has a perfect, but not as thin b... Tue, 19 Jun 2012 12:13:45 EST Don´t give up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4877982 So, it has been a long time since I wrote something on this wall. I lost about 6 kg in the last few weeks and I am very happy about it. There are another 12 Kg (and only 8kg till an healthy BMI) to go now, but the distance too my finish line becomes smaller and smaller each day. <BR> Because I was so happy about it, I told a friend of mine about my success. She is a little bit overweight and is like me now, about 10 kg away from an healthy BMI. Which seems a lot, any kg is difficult to lose,... Sat, 12 May 2012 08:08:03 EST How family guy helped me today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4636854 I am at my parents home for christmas. My mother told me yesterday that someone asked her how she could have let her daughter become so overweight. Isn´t that lovely. And it reminded me what annoys me the most about loosing weight. <BR> I lost weight when I was 18 and had mono. Everyone started to treat me so differently. So much more nicer etc. That annoyed me so much. I feel like people want overweight people to fit in their conception of what is normal. <BR> That reminded me of a family ... Sat, 24 Dec 2011 07:19:55 EST Day 4 of eating right http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4635877 This is the 4th day of eating right. I am in stage 2 of the sparks diet and it really helped. In one of the spark article it says that I should imagine what I would love to achieve. So I decided that I want not to think about food all the time and feel guilty about what I eat. I don´t want to spend so much money on food and still eat healthy. So the only thing to do that is to eat less. <BR> And I only want to eat when I am hungry. <BR> That is what I am doing right now. I also exerise ever... Fri, 23 Dec 2011 06:47:00 EST What when wrong... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4626694 Hi, <BR> <BR> I haven´t written for a long time. I was struggling with my diet. I was very dedicated for a weeks and then I went to visited a friend and found out that hadn´t lost a pound. Oh, that depressed me very much. <BR> But then I read a lot about motivation on the spark pages and I really liked one thing: If you are too much relying on the scale, you are not watching the inner changes enough. I felt so much better, when I was eating right. i had so much more energy. So now I am bac... Thu, 15 Dec 2011 11:11:06 EST Bad teacher/ change of view http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4552661 This week was a bad one for me. I asked a professor, who I thought liked me, to write me a letter of recommendation. First he said yes, but then he asked me to show all of my application and all grades that I have done so far. That made me really mad. Funnily it made me mad at myself. I wondered, why I asked someone like him to write me a letter of recommendation. There are other Professors that really like me (one even hired me). I mean this man is not the most intelligent person I have met.... Tue, 25 Oct 2011 14:06:13 EST Getting frustrated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4355903 Hi everyone, <BR> so last weekend I went to my parents house. I haven´t payed them a visit since Easter, so I thought it would be nice them, before I leave for my trip to Lithuania. Concerning my diet this was a bad idea. <BR> Every time I visit, my mom has this tendency to feed me all the time. Everytime I talked to her, she proposed to make me food. It is not that she is fat, on the contrary, my mother is very thin and used to be overweight, when she was a young woman. So I really don´t u... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 16:10:29 EST ChiRunning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4348695 Last week I couldn´t stick to my workout routine, because I had an allergic reaction to a mosquito bite (didn´t know that could happen to me...) and couldn´t run. So I spent my time reading about running and watching youtube videos, that showed good runners. I loved watching the kenyan runners. Everything they do looks so effortless. I hope to be able to run at least a bit like them. <BR> At beginning of last week I tried out the forefoot running style, that shall imitate running barefoot. I... Fri, 8 Jul 2011 06:09:21 EST Jogging and Eating http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4337573 This is a page, where I would like to share informations about my "research" regarding food and work out. <BR> First of all food: My idea is start with stricter programm at the beginning. Therefor I try eat as a shimpansee would eat. Sounds weird, but this is my plan. Shimpanses and humans have many things in common and biologists believe, that the eating habbits of human and apes, where quite similar. So what does this mean: I am basicly eating only vegetables, fruits and sometimes meat or ... Sat, 2 Jul 2011 17:10:06 EST I want to proof it to myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4337566 I think everyone has a reason, why he or she is overweight. Well, I was (and still am in some ways) the person that eats when she is in a bad mood. My mother used to give me food when I was upset and so I put on weight. The weirdest thing was, that when someone called me fat, I didn´t stop eating, but I ate even more!! (does anyone know that feeling?). <BR> So by 16 I felt horrible about my body, I weighed 172lb and thus my weight loss chaos began... Although I was doing sports 4 times a wee...
