"What's the name of YOUR bank?" (©)

Friday, May 09, 2014

emoticon Money, money, money… That seems to be a big and important topic especially in these days and times! I've been thinking, analyzing, counting, figuring and re-figuring on my family's finances and have just realized, I need to be doing the same in my personal journey to the new me.

Everyone is wanting and needing to save money for just the "basics of life" plus everything else that comes our way... So I've decided I'm going to start "saving" my "pounds lost", in order to keep a better track of how many pounds that I have actually lost in my journey.The name of my bank is called "SUCCESS" and each time I put a "coin" in, I can tally it up and see how much my bank account is showing in my balance for the week.

You can have the name of your bank be anything you would like… SUCCESS, Healthier Lifestyle, Running a Marathon, Buying New Clothes, etc. Anything that you're striving for and is important to you! Whether you weigh daily, weekly, or monthly, just put your "pounds lost coins" in your bank and see how they add up in YOUR account! Just always remember…

"Put your 'pounds lost' coins in your bank named 'SUCCESS' !"
(© Paula's Thoughts)

Whatever YOU choose to name YOUR bank… Always know that it will turn out to be a "SUCCESS"!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new!

Hugs, emoticon

    Great idea, yet I couldn't do it. Why you ask, because I don't really value money. It's just a means to an end for me. plus when the stress is over whelming, I blow the diet. So I'd be in the deficit all the time lately. Some times I stay at a plateau for two years.
But I have moved down from 182 to 140. it's just now I am fighting going back up, because of stress. I do have back up plans but ww doesn't always help. But I keep trying that's all we can do. eva

"The New Me Through My Mini-blinds"©

Friday, May 02, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon

As of March 2014, I have been on the journey to the new me for 5 years.It's been long and it's been hard, but, I started out weighing 380# and have steadily moved through to where I am today.Although I gained 42# back last fall when my doctors put me on a new medication, I have begun my "re-journey" to get back to where I was, plus endeavor to get to where the doctors want me to weigh.I have quite a ways to go now again, but I am not going to give up.I started my "re-journey" this past Monday (4/28).I have started back on my original plan of eating that helped me to lose all of my previous weight and I am going to stick to that plan because all other plans that I have tried in the meantime, under the guise of "getting a fresh outlook", have not worked for me.I don't really know why I tried anything different, other than maybe boredom with being on the same thing for so long, but it DID work for me and I'm returning to it.

Portion control only, increasing some protein, watching my sodium more, no counting of anything, reminding myself over and over of all of my "Paula's Thoughts" that I have come up with since I started back in March 2009, making signs to hang around my neck, posting signs on my icebox doors and my cabinet doors, talking to myself in the mirror as often as I need to in order to discuss my "journey" with myself, walk as much as I can with my walker, and anything else I may have done to help myself along.

I'm going to re-open the windows and blinds of my journey and am going to have this fresh start and progress on like I know that I can do.Here is a thought about it:

"My journey is like a set of mini- blinds… I can open them up and look through them to the new me or close them and hide and forget about it!"
(© Paula's Thoughts)

I opened my blinds Monday… Come on along and open Your's… The view of You is TERRIFIC!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Hugs, emoticon
Paula emoticon

I had a slip off the trail and needed your blog to get me up right and washing and opening my own blinds. posting several of you wonderful quotes around the house i have several i have posted before and they are back up Just because I am in the Kitchen I don't have to eat is really a hard one for me to follow but if you can do it so can I off we go hand in hand emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon again

"Bone VS Bone"©

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

This morning, as I do every morning, I am thinking about different ways to set myself up for another successful day.Sometimes my unsuccessful days outnumber the successful days, but, I never stop thinking, plotting, and attempting to do my best to have a great day in my journey.Sometimes if I feel wishy-washy on any particular day, I think about strength and how far I have come and how much further I need to go and it all adds up for me to this:

"To have success in your journey… Use your BACKBONE!
Don't just sit around and use a WISHBONE!"
(© Paula's Thoughts)

My wish for all of us is that we will "stand up" and be strong against bad food choices that tempt us, sad/depressed days that make us feel that our journey is just "too much" to follow, urges that would tell us "it's okay just this one time" or any other negative thoughts that might come to our mind.Let's all remember together that God gave us a backbone for a reason and it can be used for more than one thing!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

Hugs, emoticon

    So True!!! That inner voice can be a real bummer or your hero. Just depends on which inner voice you listen to. Using our backbone is harder but makes us stronger in the long run, the wishbone is so bendable it won't stand up or support us after all it is only a wishing bone. Ha Ha love it Paula.

    great comment. I must have gotten a smaller wish bone. I just understood the anatomy of diets, they always fail. I knew everyone out there, knew about disease, new about cures, yet fighting my urges was really hard. I felt like an addict. Not to food but to my habits. I and many of us have the same problems you always talk about. I realized in order to succeed I needed a plan. That if I didn't plan to succeed, I 'd planned to fail. So I actually went to WW, and they have helped a lot. I now realize that I must journal until; I understand things, and do good things out of habit. That's how habits start. Now my eating is learning life style habits. I eat only real food, not processed, fast, or man made. that is because they are made from hidden fats, sugars, and salts. They also don't have any nutrients. I also don't drink any calories, or excessive caffeine's. I watch my salt, caffeine, and sugar intake. I binge on extra vegetables, or protein or fruit. I always have homemade soup around for that, or steam vegetables & dips. I even eat three snacks in between to keep mu blood sugar balanced, and it keeps me from spiking. Just shove vegetables into everything, and your hunger level stays normal. Hope this helps you. emoticon cause we all fall. Just remember it's more important to just keep going, and get up again. lol, eva

This morning I have been thinking about "new things", "new people", "new Spark People members" I guess really, "all things new!" Another Spring has sprung and new things are happening.Amongst all the new, there still remains things that we need to do and remember… give encouragement, give uplift, give praise, offer ideas, share plans and suggestions, listen, think of someone who may need help and assistance and then act on it, be compassionate, be understanding and most of all "help" in any way we can.This journey to a healthier and new us can be long and difficult at best, but there is hope.Let's hold on to each other and help each other in any way that we can.Just always remember this:

"Hold on to my arm… Let's journey together!"

"The Picnic Basket"©

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I don't know about you, but at my house here in Texas, spring is beginning to show just a little bit.My grandfather's rosebush that he had planted many years ago is now showing bright green leaves once again after a cold winter.Birds are singing even before the sun rises and I can hear them outside my office window early every morning.I love to go on picnics, especially in the spring, when everything is out and fresh and beautiful.I can remember on lots of picnics before, I would fill up the basket with lots of "not so good for you" eats.I would go all out in our preparations and the calories showed it (LOL)! Now that I have been on a journey to the new me, I have tried to retrain myself and "do a better job" of filling that basket.Here is a thought that I have about it:

"Be sure your picnic basket holds all of your goodies: great taste, healthy choices, and a lot of success!… Enjoy!"
(© Paula's Thoughts)

I hope spring at your house will be as wonderful as you anticipate it to be!

Have a blessed day and wonderful journey to the new you!

    Sounds great! When we were younger, we moved more. So we used up more calories.
I would like to have that fantasy of finding a significant other, and having a picnic with a basket. in my fantasy I would have a bottle of red wine, and some sour dough bread, and good cheese. but in real life I am a lousy drinker. No matter what foods I would put into that basket I know that I would be eating it, or trying too. But I would rather just sit there and check out the amazing view over a lake maybe. So here is the foods I would take in my imaginary basket:
1. a hanger with marsh mellows & matches, cause I like the idea of this, and it sets the mood.
2. A bacon and tomato sandwich, cause I love those, and they are so picnicy
3. a piece of water melon, cause that always reminds me of the out doors
I'd also take a blanket to lay on, and a book to read. I can't wait.
4. And a thermos of a blending of coffee & hot chocolate with milk.
Sounds good to me, can't wait.

    Paula, I also love the Spring. It is the time of new growth and new life and the world wakes up after Winter slumbers. A picnic is a superb feast and the beauty of it is that you an put anything you like into the basket. Of course, some things will not be so good for you, but then do you notice how the fresh air always makes you so hungry? I am particularly looking forward to this Spring as next month I am taking my grandsons camping for only the second time,and they are also going to try their hand at fishing and other outdoor pursuits. Ever since I took them last year they have been so excited about going again,so I could not refuse them. S this Spring will also be one where I get to share my knowledge and teach the kids that there is a whole new world of things out there without using anything electronic.

I hope that your Spring continues to be as enjoyable as the pictrure you painted in your blog.

    The picnics of the past are just that, past. Nowadays it is much harder to figure out what to take on a nice outing. Some suggestions are green salad, tomato and cucumber sandwiches on WW bread or toast. How about some diet soda and grapes, Maybe some Sadziki dip with lots of veggies to dip. That is starting to sound so good. Now I am just waiting for some good weather and a clear picnic table down by the lake.
