Salt Weight: An Emotional Eater's Worst Enemy

Saturday, February 22, 2014

200.6 yesterday. Today 193.4, huh? I had no idea I could lose over 7 pounds in one day?! Really??? No, of course not, but man does it wreak havoc on my emotions. Then the dimples, good Lord, I should've been able to tell that I had lost weight, the dimples had returned, the plump had exited my legs. Strange, strange body I possess, but it is mine, so together, mind, spirit, body, I march!

PS Don't let salt weigh wreck your day, it's poop, but it goes away fast. For me, I just get right back on track with eating loads of fruits and veggies, not been so good with water, but that's another real deal breaker with salt weight. Later gators!

    My poor DD retains water VERY easily and her weight can fluctuate as much as 20 pounds! Alas that when she's PMS she craves things like salt & vinegar chips - worst thing!

Almost Blown Away...But No Cigar!

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Well, what to say, what to say. I've been a bbbaaaddd wabbit. I have not been tracking every day, I have not ate what I am suppose to, yeah, all that good stuff. I also landed in the hospital which caused me to need some medication which caused me to gain weight so now I am at 200 lbs. flat. OyÖfirst major regain with a punch since Iíve stated. Whatís a girl to say? Well, I dunno, but I do know what to do. I have decided that carbohydrates are not my friend, so they are getting all but obliterated from my diet. I just canít eat them, they cause me to crave everything under the sun. What else?

Well, I also have not exercised. I did that because I thought I could trick my body into losing more weight, which worked temporarily, what?!, Iím a smarty pants, but in the long run turns out my bodyís no dummy either. Huh? Who wouldíve knew? So much experimentation. So much do this, donít do that. I got tired of it, real tired of it, so you know what I did? I binged. Thatís right I binged for two straight weeks, and boy am I paying the piper! I literally feel like I fell off the bandwagon, have been uprooted and blown away, but guess what? Iím not buying it! I have been at this too long, too hard to quit now, no, I am still satisfied, even if I did gain. Oh well. At least Iím still here, and I am still trying.

I am learning that painful emotions donít have to blow me away. Key word ďlearningĒ. This is because I have power and control over my evil emotions like wanting to eat twenty five snickerís in one setting, maybe thatís just me, or wanting to never exercise my carcass until the cows come home, stuff like that. Any who, itís been a challenging month to say the least, but I am still one determined celery stick. I used to say cookie, but I ainít no cookie, uh huh, no more. So yeah, thatís my story, whatís yours been like?

This Has Been a Longer Battle Than I Imagined...

Thursday, January 09, 2014

but it is so worth it! Hit 190 flat today. I can barely believe it. Now I thought I'd be at goal by now, this is true, but I am mightily encouraged that I am still losing, even if it is slower. My skin looks great. There are the imperfections that come along for a woman pushing 40 but otherwise no complaints. My aches and pains have nearly subsided completely. I am not exercising so much as I did last year because I have got to focus on nutrition for now, but I am not beating myself up about that. I just continue. The things I have learned this year are invaluable. The lessons I continue to learn just marvelous. I am conquering food! Me! Who would've ever dreamed it real!

I am so thankful for this loss. I have not been this light since I was 17 years old. I cannot wait to hit the 180's, I will probably fall on the ground and well, who knows, lol, but if you were in my living room when it happens it would be a guaranteed sight to see! Be encouraged faithful travelers, we will reach our goals. They may shift, they may plummet, they may seek to crumble, but if we only just continue one, teeny, tiny foot step in front of the next, we will, we will, we WILL succeed!

Happy New Year!

Summer 2012



Now! (well, I'm actually 2.6 pounds lighter now, but you get the idea) ;)

A Year Ago Today...

Thursday, December 19, 2013

I started a journey. As of today, I have lost 79 pounds. I cannot thank God enough for this transformation. Obesity, by far, has been my greatest prison in life. Thank you sparkpeople and pals for all of your love and kindness through this process too. I am confidently entering phase 2 expecting to be at goal weight (between 165 and 150) by this time next year. I have learned so much this year. I have fought so many emotional demons, but I am stronger and more determined than I have ever been before, so to this I say, Are you ready to become your best you ever in 2014? Alrightie then, let's do this!!!


See ya at the finish line!

Me the summer of 2012 weighing at least 270 pounds (maybe more); I stopped keeping track after a while, it was too discouraging.


Me as of last night. A picture my hubby took at 192.4, at least 79 pounds smaller than my first pic.

We can do this! Don't you ever give up. This was my THIRD attempt at losing a large amount of weight, my second sparkpeople attempt, and as a former weight loss counselor, ha, God certainly has a sense of humor. Merry Christmas!

Friday, November 15, 2013

Just as a mother is in hard labor and being commanded to push, emoticon so I want to encourage you, keep on keeping on! emoticon This process has been anything but straight and settled for me, but I am in that process! emoticon We will win some. emoticon We will lose some. emoticon At the end of the day, if we are still breathing and still trying, it counts! emoticon Don't lose heart. emoticon Don't beat yourself up. emoticon Soon enough, the "Birth" of your new health will arrive. emoticon Only don't lose heart or become weary and give up. emoticon

Have a great weekend, Sparkers! I am off like a dirty shirt. emoticon
