Starting Over...........Again :)

Saturday, November 02, 2013

August 23rd seems like a long time ago, but it's only been a little over two months. That is the day I had the surgery that gave me back my life. If you go back and read my previous blogs, you'll see why. I really don't want to get into the details again :)

Anyway, I am back at the gym, have a new trainer (a good friend) and am feeling like maybe I can do this again. I know that change takes time, but I am going to be patient and not rush it all. Exercise is easy for me when I feel like doing it. If I get too lazy, I can think of a million excuses not to exercise! Water intake and sleep are the two easy ones for me. Since I retired, sleeping is a luxury. Water is pretty much all I ever drink anyway. But FOOD, now that is my major problem. I have allergies, I have foods that I just cannot eat without getting sick, and I have foods that I cling to for comfort.

I also live with a man (my husband) who doesn't think there's anything wrong with my weight, which leads me to wonder why do I think there is? Um, because I'm fat and overweight? I just can't see how he doesn't see it. But anyway, it's very hard for me to eat healthy with him here, but I keep trying.

An example: I was out today and he texts me to please stop and bring him some potato chips. OK, I text back, but in my mind I'm thinking NO! cause I know darned well I cannot resist potato chips, and I didn't, I had some this afternoon. So much for trying right?

It just bothers me that he does that when I've told him not to buy anymore, and if he needs some, then get something I don't like, such as sour cream and onion :( But on the other hand, I know that I can't go the rest of my life without eating chips ever!

So, here I am back at SPARK, trying to do this again. I've lost a pound and I am happy, because it takes so much for me to lose anything, my body is stubborn and greedy and keeps the weight on.

I'm just happy that I am able to exercise again after 5 months of inactivity! Wish me lots of luck!

    Glad you're feeling better and able to get started again! emoticon . My husband is the same way with the snack food. But, as hard as it is, I'm learning to just walk away when he eats them. Have you tried slicing a sweet potato or potato really thin, seasoning them, and baking or microwaving for your chip fix? That's what helps me.

    I can feel for you. My. Spouse does the same thing..It's hard when you feel or question if they are trying to sabotage your hard work. All I do is keep reminding myself that I do this for me..I need to be proud of me and my accomplishments. emoticon emoticon emoticon
