A Little Pat on the Back for Myself.
I've had a couple of really bad blogs. But yesterday, as it's 1:30 in the morning, now, I learned that I'd actually lost 5.8 pounds since last Tuesday! And, I felt so good about that, I exercised for nearly an hour and a half! (This is my usu... Read more
Feeling a bit better today.
Getting things out in the open can be cathartic. It's like emptying the trash. You've got room to put more junk.
I still have all those problems. I still have to figure out how to overcome them. I still need to lose weight.
I will.... Read more
Okay, time to come clean.
It's time I started telling everything so maybe I can move on and get real help.
First, I suffer from extremely low self esteem. This was created, I believe, by my mother who put me on diets at the age of 8. Looking back, I was a chubby k... Read more
Guilt...Is it really mine?
I feel guilty about everything. When someone accuses me of something, I feel guilty, even though I didn't do it. I feel like I should take the blame for everything.
This is not a new feeling. I've spent my entire life, from early childho... Read more
Portion Sizes? Food Makers Need to Get Real!
Has anyone ever eaten just 2 tablespoons of salsa? I don't know about you, but I could drink the stuff. And cookies? How many of those packages say just one cookie is a serving size? Too many.
The people who figure that stuff should get... Read more
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to PT
I got my will to exercise back. I did nearly a mile on Wii Walk it Out, then I did 30 minutes of Wii Fit Plus Yoga. I feel better about myself when I exercise.
I planned my whole "nutrition" day last night. I stuck to it, mostly. I didn... Read more
Day 2 of PT
I'm a little nervous but I think it will help. Even if the pain doesn't go away, the exercise won't hurt my health.
I went Wii Bowling yesterday, didn't do too bad, but then I'm a crappy bowler. lol I played Wii Tennis, lost both games, ... Read more
Update on, well, Me!
Ok, so I've been lax in doing the Spark People stuff. I've been tracking some, not all, of my food, but that's about it. I've been reading articles and posting on message boards, but I just can't seem to get motivated to get back to the exerci... Read more
Is it Just Me...
or do a lot of women tell stories about what size they wear?
Here's the thing. I've seen these ads and talk shows where women have lost weight. They claimed they wore a size 18 or 20 and lost down to a size 8 or 10. Now, I see the before... Read more
Just Leave Me Alone!
I really need the world to go away and leave me alone. I am CRANKY and I can't help it.
First, I'm trying to eat less, and we all know that makes us cranky.
Second, I'm not on the proper medications for all my problems, and I'd be wil... Read more
I hate thinking about exercise and diet!
One of the things that scared me the most about going on any diet or weight loss plan or life altering adventure was, and is, the fact that you have to think about what you eat and what you do all the time. You have to plan your meals ahead of ... Read more
Totally not about Spark People or Weight loss!
I have a FaceBook page that I've just recently started using. Actually, it was SparkPeople that led me to look at my FaceBook page.
Okay, so I found quite a few close family members and cousins and a few folks I went to high school with. ... Read more
I am NOT less than others because of my weight!
I have to admit, I frequently get blog ideas from ready other people's blogs. Maybe that's good, maybe it's not, who knows.
I read one just now on sparkers attacking themselves. Okay, so it's a nasty habit and we all do it.
Self-depr... Read more
I spend so much of my time trying to make sure everyone else is happy that I really don't leave time for myself. I never seem to get to do the things I want to do because everyone else wants to do something else. I can't tell you how many time... Read more
