I'm letting words dictate my actions.Actions speak louder than words!!

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

It is Thursday afternoon, I only had one client today. So I am back home for the day. I am going to take Crystal and Princess my two chihuahua girls for a walk. Other than that I will do some housework. Have some time online , and we are going shopping later. I live with my son 26 and my daughter 16. My son Dwayne likes shopping at night, coz it is not crowded. He is not a social being and nor is my girl Samantha at the moment. Sammy suffers anxiety and depression and is doing her school work by correspondence. Unfortunately shopping day is the only time she goes out at the moment. I am hoping to take her out tomorrow, and we will either go and see a movie or have lunch out. But, I am not so sure she will want to go out. Her anxiety about leaving the house at the moment is pretty severe. That is why she does school work from home. She has put on a lot of weight, which of course makes me so sad to see. I am trying to get her to join me in my weight loss venture-journey. Maybe she might start to join me when she sees results from me. Because her weight doesn't help with her feelings about herself. So that gives me more reason to lose weight, to set a good example to Samantha. I have been pretty good so far this time. I know that doesn't sound that positive really. It sounds as if chance or luck comes into things. And I am not going to lose weight by luck or chance. I am going to do it by sticking to my programme and persevering no matter what. I am very determined to do it this time. Even though hundreds, even more times before I have started with words of I am going to do it this time. But there comes a time when words are not enough. And actions speak louder than words. I have been almost two weeks at it. I am going to weigh-in on Monday. I am not sure on what to expect accept that I have lost some. Shopping day is my hardest day because in my house we all eat different things. And therefore we all add different things to the trolley. Dwayne has a very active job and needs high calorie things. Samantha adds fattening foods, and I am trying to curb that habit from her.

This is a picture of me and my lovely daughter Samantha. We were getting ready for my brothers 50th birthday party, it was a fancy dress. I was being Boy George and Sammy was David Bowie(laberinth movie, female version. She wore a green contact lense).

    Thanks guys emoticon Getting Samantha started will be much harder to do. For many reasons, but although I have always been extra large I enjoy healthy food. I just prefer a lot of the fattening things. Although I have eaten piggy foods and Sammy has learnt to enjoy them. She has never eaten her vegetables. I have tried for so long to get her to eat vegetables but she just won't. She eats the odd piece of fruit. She may decide when she really sees my hard work is paying off to join me. Yes, I can feel that little bit lighter. Mainly when I'm walking home up my hill-it is a bit easier. It is not a big hill, but I had got so heavy that I still noticed it when I came home.Sammy has said how good I'm doing, so she has noticed how I have avoided her munchies. She is a big chippie fan and she must have dip with it. And that is where the shopping is a little hard . Sammy finds a way of getting her chippies in the trolley, and it's not just one bag.

    Hey you took the first step and that is the hardest. Hoping that Sammy with follow you. So setting a good example sounds like great motivation for you. You know this is just an idea....but it might be a good start and a lot of fun. I think you and Sammy should do a vision broad together. Share your hopes, dreams and goals. It might be the step you both need to make together. It would be something positive for you both to focus on. Stay strong, Cathe

    Just remember that it's only a number on that scale when you weigh-in on Monday. No matter what it are you feeling? Have you noticed that clothes are starting to feel looser? Are you able to walk a little further and faster without getting breathless? Things like that are a better way to judge how you are doing!
