Hanging on by my fingernails!

Jan 6, 2016

Wow a new year! And I'm still here! I struggle. I struggle all the time. I am a compulsive overeater and binger and will readily admit that I 'eat my feelings'. And while I may be dormant socially on SP sometimes, I keep coming back because even a distant connection keeps my head above water in this ongoing struggle!!

I'm searching for balance and acceptance in myself more than I'm searching for big weight loss. I haven't quite figured out how to ...

Wow a new year! And I'm still here! I struggle. I struggle all the time. I am a compulsive overeater and binger and will readily admit that I 'eat my feelings'. And while I may be dormant socially on SP sometimes, I keep coming back because even a distant connection keeps my head above water in this ongoing struggle!!

I'm searching for balance and acceptance in myself more than I'm searching for big weight loss. I haven't quite figured out how to balance and maintain weightloss. I lose, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, then I gain it back. And boy can I gain weight easily! I swear I can gain 5 lbs just by LOOKING at the food.

I want to be strong, healthy, and happy. I want to get out of my comfort zone, (which usually involves food!) and actually live life, not just watch it go by.

I love the support that SP gives me - the more friends the better!

These are my goals:

Think Positively
Exercise Daily
Eat Healthy
Work Hard
Stay Strong
Worry Less

My Goals:
While I don't want to be defined by a number, I do want to have things to strive towards:

I will NOT get on a scale more than once per week.

Start weight
333.4 - 2/25/13

Goals:
- 320 - 3/27/13
- 310 - 4/24/13
- 299 (10%) - 6/6/13
- 289 - 7/9/2013
- 279 - 8/10/2013
- 266 (20%) - 11/13/13
- 259
- 249 (lowest adult weight)

Other goals:
- to be in a healthy weight range for my height (5'9")
- to be a positive person
- to not feel like the largest person in the room all the time
- to shop in regular stores
- to be able to do things like kayaking or fly on airplanes without concern of not fitting
- to be someone that says 'well, I just got back from my run, but SURE I'll go for a walk with you.'

My Program:
Honestly tracking calories with the nutrition tracker every single day. Every single thing I eat. Trying as much as possible to stay within my calories, knowing that some days it might be impossible.

Incorporating exercise.

Cardio - elliptical, swimming, walking, hiking, occasional video

Strength training using plan designed by a trainer utilizing free weights, bosu, exercise ball.

Combo - 30 Minute Hit Kickboxing Circuit

Kundalini yoga - 1x week.



Personal Information:
I'm single, work full-time and live with a grumpy 16 year old cat on the west coast of Canada.

I'm 39 yrs old and I'm a little over 5'9" tall (I tell you this just cause when I see pictures of people at certain weights everyone is so different and I always wonder - how tall are they!!?? So now you know how tall I am. :)



Other Information:
The more friends the better!

Two random things came to mind ...

1) I've always wondered about people's heights, too ... I'm 5' 8"

2) Found it interesting you mentioned grocery items for Christmas; well nothing wrong with that, because I asked for coconut water & my sis asked for honey mustard ... so I'd say, you're right on track.

Thanks for the tip on the bacon. We have stores here that carry Western Family, so I am on a mission today to find it. Seems like a valid way to spend my Saturday. :)

Met up with a friend last night who hadn't seen me since I started the plan. She said she thought my skin looked healthier/glowing etc. But I think it may have just been the lighting because my engagement ring was also super sparkly haha.

Hope the rest of the month goes fast for you. You're through the worst of it! I was able to introduce a whole egg back in today. If no reaction, I'll be able to eat them freely come Monday. It's the little things that matter haha.
