Still Standing

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Today i did something I hadnt before and I did something that I have done many times.
The first thing I did was read back all my blogs.
I give good advice teh heh.
No really though it was fascinating to go back all the way to the beginning.
last to first
"I feel like something I had misplaced is being recovered."
that speaks for itself
"the light goes on" when I realized that still wearing baggy clothes sucked my newfound skinniness away.
"Mini goal results" when I went lower than my goal.
"mama said there'd be days like this" where I talked about a binge but how it wasnt the end of the world.
"Why exercise is good" where I got some numbers that showed how much more I can eat and still lose weight if I exercise.
"Synergy, or in this case cinergy" where I listed how I was doing many things to be healthy, like sleeping enough and taking vitamins, eating fiber etc.
"I have a vision" about the fork in the road and walking the right path.
"Am i scared of success" where I noticed some self sabatoging whenever I hit a milestone.
"seeing myself with my old eyes" is when I talked about how easy it is to see the bad things and discount all the good accomplishments and we need to talk ourselves straight.
"Huge eye opener" I can exercise and eat quite a bit without gaining. lol
"are these pants too young for me?"
"its all about balance" where I realized that both food and exercise are needed for optimal results.
"its not that we slip up that derails us, its how we deal with it."
"see the positive"
"the magic pill"
"on the right track"
"just rambling"
"it is time"
"walking my legs slimmer"
"the battle of the potato chip" its still raging.
"my anytime food list" some of it has changed, some has stayed the same.
"my walking friends are dropping fast"
"everyday choices"
"goal setting"
"did you go off your plan this morning?" written after memorial day 2008
"Is your weight loss slow" when I realized I wasnt the average 2 pound loss a week but it didnt matter.
"weight loss tips and trick" My failed attempt at a team.
"flowers for you"
"giving back" where I asked people who read and enjoy peoples blogs to drop a quick line letting them know.
"new book, new outlook"
"My relationship with sparks will be long term" emoticon
I was drunk
"In week 8"I was thrilled that I was still here.
"starting week 7 on sunday"
"dont drink your calories away" where I snuck in an awesome frozen rum drink recipe.
"flatten your belly"
"starting week 6"with a picture of me, wow, I look so diferent.
And after every blog is amazing support, empathy, friendship. It was worth rereading for me, It brought back memories of people I havent kept up with, people who have left and most of all everyone who is still standing by my side.
Oh, the other thing I did today, that I have done many times?
I went and cleared junk food out of my cabinets, again, I dont know how it keeps getting back there, " emoticon, and I pulled the last bag I own of clothes out of the basement that said too small. I need them now.
Oh yeah, I went to the store to restock the fruits and get some salad stuff.
Yeah, just things that I have done before.
Thank you everyone who has stood beside me and is still standing.

    What a cool idea! That was fun reading the mini-recaps of those blogs along the way. Since we're "class friends", I should try that exercise myself. I should have a little pile accumulated, too.
    Yep, you ARE still standing - hey, so am I! emoticon
    We're doing more than just standing, we're getting it done this time, always learning!

    No stopping this time, we can make it!! I am glad you are here, friend of mine!!!
    emoticon to our health and smaller clothes!
