perhaps being out of work since January has really gotten to me. But I think of one other thing.

My weight watcher leader asked our group what would it take to really get us to our goal weight. I thought about this for a while and came up with an answer -- the decision to lose weight has to be my own goal. I have been doing this for others. MH parents, my doctofr, my friends. while that is all good -- in order for me to reach a goal, I have to be doing it for me-not somoene else

i don't know how much I weighed when I first started losing wieght but I know I lost 20 since I joined spark. I have been exercising at a gym for 17 years -- outside of the 3 times I had surgery. I was up to 45 minutes a day -- but I had to take a break when I had surgery. now up to 35 minutes a day. I am tired of waking up at 4 am to go to gym. I am sick of being fat. I hate it. I suppose I should be more patient with myself

If it is okay with you why did you quit beck?

Gwynnie I can understand. But our behaviors...notice how I said our are being worked on daily. Patterns of eating some times are hard to over come. I now I am working daily and with daily working I have ups and downs. Please be patient with yourself. DID I remember you saying you lost 40 pounds?? Have you took a look at my spark page? I have just a few pounds to lose and I have been with spark since 2006 ROFL. I do not care how long it takes to lose I will. We have to learn how to control these behaviors etc. One day at a time. We rise and we fall. It is not how long it takes us to lose it what we learn while on the journey. I am determined to over come by faith. I know you are with me. Be aware of patterns around food and exercise etc. I have notices a lot of mine. I learned that I can not have a cheat day. I will get off plan and go over board. I can not eat sweets in excess or I will start craving them. etc. I am sure you will find food triggers and the like. emoticon emoticon emoticon No matter how long it takes.

wow ok I did see very few even talking. I left for other reasons.

Girl can you take a compliment? Look at me I could say the same thing I only have 40 or so pounds to go but I will not diss the progress I have made. As an emotional eater it is not easy. So I am taking it one day at a time.

of course not -- the enemy of course, are all those people who do not understand hidden disabilities.

you don't know how I feel for Robin William's family. Depression is a horrible thing. I lived with depression for 25 yeras. Depression and Brain Injury are so hidden -- I wish people understood

I have finally made the decision that I need to be my own motivation to lose weight, find a new job and make new friends. Some of my friends I met while I was the old GwynLee. The GwynLee who didn't like herself, who felt that because she had a brain injury she was not as good as other people. Now I know that is not true

They will never understand until it hits at their back door.Then they understand and start to car better. There is a saying " you never know until you walk a mile in my shoes." We are all in this world together. We should take better care of each other. If we did just imagine what kind of world this would be. Yes some do not care and feel it is not there problem but it is. My faith tells me that I am my brothers/sisters keeper

yesterday we all learned of Robin William's suicide. First, my sympathies to his family. I was never more impressed by someone as I was of Robin Williams.

Depression is a very serious mental illness. All mental illnesses are serious -- I have a sister in law and a cousin who are both schizophrenic. Depression is much different.

I have lived on an off with depression for about 27 years of my life (I am now 60). Both times they went undiagnosed for ages -- my mother was smart enough to get me help the first time. the second time was when I was adult. I went around to get help the second time and really didn't get the help I needed -- untill it was way too late. By that time I had tried suicide 3 times as well. Over the years I gained 125 pounds. I have lost about 40 of those pounds. not good

good I have been licking my wounds concerning that stupid cholesterol number result. I too am determined to get this under control by faith with meds or without. I will go forward. If I can improve my a1c from 8 to 5.7 just a year and a couple of month I can get this cholesterol in good numbers too. I refuse to let this get me down! emoticon emoticon

I know it isn't easy when you are used to working and having that money coming in. Keep looking..have you stayed in contact with the agency that helps the disabled find jobs???. Now you can use this time to work on your goals. Can you afford to volunteer? that will keep your mind busy along with your hands. put that food down girl. I am telling myself the same thing by the way. I have gained a few pounds myself,. I hate going backwards................but I am determined to recover and begin again.

Then...you must be in great shape! You can make it through this.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That's easier said than done. I remember being very depressed and feeling really bad for myself for a long time. One day, my brother looked at me and said, "We all have our crosses to bear, this is yours." For whatever reason, that worked really well for me. So, let's look at the bright side of your situation....you at least have the time to workout. It's summertime, so you can spend a lot of time outside. Walking is wonderful exercise and can help boost endorphins. Good luck to you on your journey. Everything happens for a reason and you can make it through this.

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were going to live forever.

have not been good about writing in this. The company that terminated me has not responded to unemployment as to why I left the company. so what this means is that unemployment automatically sides with me, however, they still have to make a determination whether or not I receive any unemployment benefits. So far it has been 3-1/2 weeks since I have had any money coming in. I have applied for jobs, contacted my temp agencies, and met with a government agency that can help people who have disabilities find work.

This is how I got fat in the first place. Many years ago, before I discovered I had a brain injury, I could not hold a job. i was always looking for work. I sat at home and ate. Now I am sitting at home and crying

First, I am a very resiliant person. I always land on my feet -- always.
We are all different. I never had children. I never had boyfriends until I met hubby about 11 years ago -- so I never had opportunity to be a mom. However, being a stay at home mom is very important. You did what was right for you.

I will find a new job. I know I will. I achieve all my goals -- and so I will find job, lose weight, and knit, and sew and ....

good every little bit helps. I hope you land on your feet. I am sure it has been very frustrating and the like. I can not image going back to work now. Not only am I older and sick also. Some employer are only looking for those they think will represent there companies...and please tell me or how is that???I have read right here that certain companies weight discriminate. they force those how are over weight to get in shape or else..are could kicked right out the door. I am glad I am a SAHM. I had to hand in raising my kids. I do realize some can not stay at home. My mom had to work. I decided when I first learned that I was pregnant to stay at home. Of course I had to quit a job when I found out. But I do not regret my decision....things are tight and I can not go out and buy what I want to but I am content with I have. Family and God.

Then be patient. It did not take you over night to gain the weight. It will take some time. I have found myself comparing my work outs to others. I know I have some limitations. Like I can not exercise outside because of allergies. I can not use the elliptical because of asthma...of course I have not tried it in a while since my endurance has gotten better....just might see........

I am sure you will figure it out. Change up work outs. I saw you kickboxed once or more ...change things up. Change meals plans around. It is said that your body grows accustom to doing the same things.

this month is kind of an anniversary. It would be my 11 year anniversary of finding Spark People. When I started Posting on this site I weighted 240 pounds. and I am only 5 foot tall. I am now down to 212. while it is good that I have lost it is not good that i have not taken off all this weight. it makes me angry.

On the positive side, I exercise 6 days a week. and I track my food and go to weight watchers

okay i have settled into a routine. I am going to keep this journal up. Frustration is the word of the day. IThere is a Minnesota Woman who was on the biggest loser. Her name is Rachel Fredrickson and she lost 155 pounds in about 7 months. While that is good what I am jealous about is the fact that I have been on a diet supposedly for 11 years and only 40 pounds gone. how stupid i must be. I am going to change that around

weight gain is most likely because I have not been able to exercise lately due to foot surgery--but now I am back in the game.

weight will come off. just want it to be quicker

We;; O certainly do agree with you about accountability. I know there have been times where I would just want to put I ate everything then leave here. However; I know and knew at the time that it would not help me health wise nor psychologically either. To stay in tune accountability is essential. It's a great topic and its a great thing to have, this journal on accountability of yours is right on target. emoticon with the journal... and about the weight gain , it could be water, or if you are quite sure it isn't, you still have the necessary tools to pick yourself back up and continue on the path of success. After all, those quotes are quite encouraging and they are your key to doing so... Maybe going to the coaches would help you? Just a suggestion , one of many... gl

Inches Inches Inches lost are more important to me than pounds... :) well POUNDS ARE STILL IMPORTANT NOT AS MUCH AS INCHES THOSE SHOW THE REAL PROGRESS AND THAT IS A HEALTHIER WAY TO MAINTAIN YOUR WEIGHT!!
