HOPE

Friday, May 29, 2009

I have really been struggling. I have a ray of hope; my sister has lost 25 pounds. I thought that would never happen. I am so excited and hopeful! I am going to the doctor to ask for help dieting. I cannot ask for pills; my current meds cannot be mixed with diet pills. That is ok. There is hope.

I got the "A" I wanted in school, so now I know I can do it, so I am focusing on my health now.

    Well, you encourage me! I have been backsliding for about week. Not charting my food intake, cheating like a brass band! However, when you don't get what you want, you get experience. I learned I can go a good long while and then I have a blow out! I gained 4 pounds in that week. Had a great time too...but with a price attached to it. Thats my lesson! Now I ask myself, how do I take off what I worked so hard for? Exercise! I signed up (finally) for some "easy chair" excercises I knew I would do. Added a contrition item. I will ride my stationary bike in front of the TV for 20 minutes and do this 3 times a week and put a chart on my refrig with a pen in the drawer. I have a plan! I felt better and my I dropped one pound yesterday. Water weight or no, its still a pound. I made some vege soup because I could eat like a horse through my own induced sugar craving. After three days of yummy soup full of veges, the nutrition kicked in and I just about back on the wagon 100%. My next step is to reduce the amount of calories at night. I bought melba toast I can put some tuna or a very small dab of peanut butter on and the rest dry munch (7 crackers is 60 cal). Which is better than an entire package of cookies (1200 cal). Add some 5 cal beverage and its a start back in the right direction. Bad girl, well yes, but smart too! I get in my kitchen now and say "two steps forward, one step back, progress one step at a time." Its my mantra now. To let myself punish myself with negative self talk won't help me now...so its two steps forward , one step back. Back to work. emoticon

    I was away for three months came home to an empty house, and ate away my sadness (being away from my family).

    I need to restart too and I know I will be successful I too have hope!

    Kay, whenever I see your posts I feel as though you have an awful lot of hope. So, I am surprised that you don't see it yourself.

    There is no reason you cannot be successful...NONE!

    You have an amazing set of tools at your disposal to assist you when you have a glimpse of doubt and that is your SparkFriends and SparkTools.

    Good for you! Now that you have school done, you can concentrate on you. We know it's not the easiest trek but you DO have the strength you need. Baby steps...and know we are all here for you whenever you need us.

    Tell your sister congratulations and let her know we miss her! But so glad to hear she is doing well!
