trying this losing weight thing one more time.....

Thursday, October 08, 2009

i've always been a "thick girl"....i take after my grandmother...never a size 3 or 5...but never double digits...so i guess i can say i'm really blessed in that area...i've been self conscious about my weight for as long as i can remember...i haven't worn shorts in about 10 years, and i'm afraid of belly shirts cause i'm self conscious about my stomach...i've made myself sick...i've starved myself...i've joined numerous gyms... and to no avail nothing has changed...i've pretty much done it all...i think im just getting to the point in my life where i can say no matter what i do i'll always be me...so im at this fork in the road where i want to live healthier to be around longer for my kids....i am determined to work out everyday...cut out the sodas, drink more water...and eat healthier...or maybe just more fruits and veggies....i only weigh 141.5 and to some people they may think thats a perfect size but i am surrounded daily by "the skinny girls" and it just upsets me that I will never be one of them

    Congratulations on your first blog. Keep up the good work. The more you put into you program (blogging, huddling, tracking food and exercise minutes, posting on your team pages, earning spark points) the more you will get out of your program- besides weight loss, you will get emotional support, friends who understand exactly what you are going through, accountability, focus, dependability...and the list goes on...

    Once I hit the 140's ,my body seemed content to stay there. I was no longer considered overweight- but I wasn't happy either. What has helped me was focusing more on the healthy lifestyle istself, and less on the scale.

    When I brought my focus to the choices I could make each day (and the positve example they set for my kids) it was easier to stay on track. After all, I'm not exercising to try and burn off a pound by Friday- I'm doing it because it makes me feel good. I'm not eating fruits and veggies because they are "diet" foods, but because they are good for me, etc...

    The added bonus? Not only do I feel healthier- the weight is coming off on it's own!
