Mommy You're so huge

Thursday, July 31, 2008

I've not been here in a while. . . I stopped getting sparkpeople message in my inbox and then i sort of forgot about checking in.

but last night I was lying down with Katie to help her get to sleep and she started talking about how big I am. "You're so big its like you ate me and Thor and Daddy. you're just enormous" Now Katie is 5. she is not a hurtful little girl at all, she's just stating the facts.

good thing it was dark.

i just don't know how to get it into control. really. in my head I know what to do, but i can't seem to make myself do it. but I have to. I don't want to look like I "ate me and Thor and Daddy" any more.

    Kids say the darndest things. Their total honesty can be a double edge sword. Welcome back no matter how you got here. There's a lot of us here who are not perfect, so you're in the right place.

    Besides the study that came out a couple weeks ago stating that people who track their food lose twice as much weight as people who don't in the same amount of time, I know it definitely makes me fully aware of what I'm putting in my mouth. If you're brutally honest about it, cutting back will come naturally.

    Good luck to you on your goals and stick around. Everyone here is here to help each other.

    My sister in law is trying to lose weight and my niece whose only 4 is a few pounds overweight according to the doctor. My sis in law was telling someone about what the doctor said and my little neice said "that's okay mommy, you're fat too". Kids are so innocent and don't know how it hurts others, but at the same time they see things that we don't. Or we try not to see.

    I've done terrible myself these past few months and I have told myself that today is the last day that I'm going to eat what I want and whenever I want. I'm starting over tomorrow with the new month. A new month, a new start. No looking back, no regrets. Just new hope.

    I want you to know that the people on the "I Hate Exercise" team will always be here to support you and stand by you. And we are great at handing out hugs and warm fuzzies when you need them. Please become a regular on the team. We'd love to be there for you.

    I hear you loud & clear. A few years ago, one of my daughter's friends told her, "Your mom needs to lose some weight." It hurt my feelings, but I knew it was the truth.

    Now here I am and not really lost any since Jan. I just can't seem to motivate myself. I keep telling myself I am going to die and that I really want to live for my kids, but that doesn't stop me putting stuff in my mouth or not getting out there and walking or exercising.

    When I saw your blog, it really made me stop and think. I need to get back on track. Tomorrow is the start of a new month and maybe it can be the start of a new beginning as well. Thanks for your blog.
