Body Lotion and Body image
I used to put lotion and self-tanners on the parts that showed - My legs up to the knees, and my arms.
Awhile ago I read something about a study where the people who put lotion on their entire body and took 5 minutes to do it had more suc... Read more
44 pounds lost, under 170, still feel like fat girl...
For the first time in I can't remember how long, I weigh under 170. It is like a miracle, except that I know I have done the work to get here. I look in the mirror and almost don't recognize that woman.
I got off my bike in front of a s... Read more
I'm Normal, I'm Normal, I'm Normal...
[Repeated while pumping fists and doing happy dance]
I had my body fat retested yesterday and I am, for the first time in my life, I'm sure, in the "recommended" range at 31.8. What? Me normal? YES I AM! In April I tested at 34.7 which ... Read more
OK, that's 40 big ones gone for good!
Whoa, 40.4 to be exact since I began in November 2009 at 213 pounds.
Just to be clear, I began this journey in October of 2006 at 227, got down to about 192 (for 5 minutes) and then slowly regained back to 213. So technically I'm down 54... Read more
Size 12 pants! Woo-Hoo!
OK, thatís size 12. Quick change from 14 due to some interval training on the treadmill. Thatís it! Just added in some running and boom! Size 12. My body is an amazing machine that responds to my input of right-sized food portions, exercise... Read more
Me and my pants...
...have always had a, shall we say, "tough" relationship. My ratio of thighs and butt to waist made them hard to find and not very attractive the heavier I am. When I didn't have much money, sometimes I'd only have a pair or two at a time that... Read more
Size 14 pants!
Yeah! OK, they're a tight 14 and I won't wear them out of the house just yet, but I am solidly and securely in a 14. Wow. Can't remember the last time. I have taken down about 15 pairs of pants from the closet but they are just stacked there... Read more
What would I say to myself?
OK, rough Easter weekend, eating and drinking more than I wanted to. Feeling a bit edgy and nervous because I don't want the attitude to continue and become a nasty habit which could lead to weight gain. Plus, I suspect when I weigh on Wednesd... Read more
Feeling grateful for SP
Today I am just so happy to have found SP a couple of years ago. I lost weight and then slowed down around 190 ponds and struggled until I "logged off" for over a year. Then I joined Weight Watchers and started to log back in and have been so ... Read more
I have been telling myself of late that "I release you, excess weight" or My weight can now be released" while explaining to myself that I can handle what it takes to keep the weight off, I can handle whatever the fat has helped me do in the pas... Read more
Restart after two "off" days
Whew, the last two days I just got out of hand. I have been steaming along pretty well and just got into the chocolates and candy and super fattening crackers here at work the last two days. I noticed that it all started when our boss brought ... Read more
In the past, at the start of any weight loss endeavor, I always told myself, that I just wanted to lose weight, and never stated a goal or just named a number to have one but didnít feel serious about it. I always gave myself an out this way so... Read more
Sticking to it
I just read a previous blog of mine in which I discussed not getting past the 190 mark. It was from a couple of years ago. Now I feel so much differently. I have gotten down to 190 and actually feel that I can reach my goal weight of 170. I ... Read more
One Good Day!
Finally! I made one good day happen SP-wise. That means I stayed in my range, didn't snack, tracked my food, drank my water, got my exercise, watched my portion control. One good day after a couple of months of half-a$$ed days feels REALLY go... Read more
Job not finished=bad long-term habit (Another one?!)
I was gung-ho for 6 months, lost 35+ pounds, feel great, have cute clothes, but can't seem to get below the 190 mark. Just wavering here - few pounds up, few pounds down. I'm still a long way from my goal weight and I guess I'm having a hard t... Read more
