My story of Struggling for Fit Shape

Since the early childhood I have always being a little bit plump. It never seemed a real problem for me as I thought that situation was under my total control. As the time showed, I was wrong. When I became older things started to go wrong and my problem with excess weight started growing together with the number of kilos on the scales.

First Fails

Fitness industry becomes more popular every day and I decided not to stay aside. I found the nearest gym next to my house and…

Weekly Update - 11/19

Exercise - Ran 5 days on the dreadmill. This year we had cable down in the basement so it is a little more tolerable.

Mood - Still suffering with anxiety. Worried about everything. Praying gas been more intense than ever.

I can't believe… Continue

Got up this morning & headed to Dunkin Donuts for a coffee & toasted bagel. I put pumpkin butter on mine. It is fat free & I like the flavor. It is basically pumpkin purée wth spices. I chose the sugar free. It was still chilly when we got to the park to get in our Sunday run. The first mile was tough, but i did warm up. Not sure how long we will be able to continue runnning outside. We got in 6 miles. Lucky for me, it has been a mild November. I signed up for the Turkey Trot. A 5… Continue

Weight - Up 1.0 pounds. Overeating is the reason.

Exercise - Ran 25 miles on the treadmill. Getting too dark to run after work. I am still running Sunday mornings.

Food - Too much eating. Frankly there has been too much crap at work. This week alone I did a serious binge on Goldfish crackers. I really need to get my mini binges gone. Stress & boredom seem to be the reasons.

2 months until the end of the year. 2017 is just around the corner. Election Day is here & I really don't know who to vote for. I can only hope through prayer that this country will pull together & bring back values, concern for others & remember what makes this country the best place on earth. One thing I "elected" to do is sign up for the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day. It is a 5 mile run. It will mark the 5th run I will have completed this year. I am nervous as I get with all… Continue

Happy Happy Friday! So after seeing one of my clients get smaller and smaller doing Weight Watchers Smart Points I decided to give it a try without weighing myself. Mostly out of fear that I wouldn't like what the scale said and it would unmotivated me. Hey, it's happened more then I like to admit. Well today was the end of week 3 so I made myself get on the scale and I'm glad I did. Not weighing myself gave me this "ignorance is bliss" feeling about it. But this week I noticed my motivation… Continue

Frustration Leads to Resolution

So I visited my orthopedic doctor yesterday for a follow up appointment. I had gotten a cortisone shot in my knee two weeks ago to help with the advanced osteoarthritis that was flaring up. Two weeks ago he told me I'd need a knee replacement in the next three years, and come back if it bothers me again and we'd take next steps.

His version of "next steps" is telling me to lose weight. Um, duh. I already knew that. I was 115 pounds when I graduated, I'm 230 pounds now. I know…

How much do I need the scale?

So I've been doing Weight Watcher Smart Points (on my own) for 3 weeks now, without weighing myself. I was gonna weigh myself on Friday, but then I realized it was the week before ahem TOM. Before when I did weight watchers I learned to skip that week of weighing because I wouldn't like what the scale said, and unfortunately the scale has the ability to ruin my whole day. So knowing this I decided to skip this week. I went to work yesterday and got my first "are you losing weight?" From one of… Continue

Smart Points, My Oldest Son turns 18, too much good/bad food!!

So this last week I've been trying Smart Points and so far I think I really like it. I guess we'll see if I lose weight, that will decide if I like it;) I see how it kind of forces you to make better choices, and because of WHAT I'm eating I truly haven't been hungry at all and I feel thinner. I'm not gonna weigh myself until Friday I think. But so far so good!!

So yesterday my oldest baby Jonah turned 18. It's so bittersweet watching your kids grow up. I love the age he is now and… Continue

I feel FAT

I have been feeling like Henrietta Hippo this week. Everything is bothering me. My clothes feel crappy. I am not sure if it is because I had a crappy weigh in last week or what. I have decided I must fix the eating issue. The mindless snacking be it on good or bad food must stop. I was toying with not calorie counting but decided against it as I know I will get sloppy with my eating system nice I am not tracking. It is just so frustrating as I seem to have stalled on weight loss.

Broken Zipper

so I knew that I was not going to diet on Saturday at dinner and was careful all week so I could splurge.

Had a great anniversary dinner with a bottle of Chianti and veal and risotto for dinner. Going good then as the evening ended my napkin fell to the ground, i went down to pick it up and the zipper on the back of my dress broke.  Fortunately I had a jacket on. 

I wanted to cry. This would never have happened before.  I felt like this was such a FAT thing to happen.  All…

Smart Points?

Is anyone doing the Weight Watchers Smart points plan? A few years ago when I was losing weight steadily (1.5 lbs a week) I did the old Flex Points plan, or Momentum. I did really well on that plan, I felt like I was eating like a normal person. I was trucking right along getting closer to my goal weight, I was down 25lbs. Then they changed the plan to points plus and I immediately stopped losing weight. Got unmotivated, started having pound creep, add a little autoimmune disease (Hoshimoto… Continue

Weekly Update - 10/8

Weight - Up 2.4 pounds. WTF? Fluctuation? Ugh!

Exercise - Rocked it as usual with running & bike ride.

Food - I am not sure what the heck. I guess I really need to evaluate sodium as I cannot seem to get enough.

Mood - The scale does dictate mood for me. It should improve tomorrow.

Showed a slight gain probably from Chipotle yesterday even though I did the brown rice and left off many of the toppings. Perhaps too much sodium or just too many calories for a lunch. Regardless, it has got me down but not defeated.  

I had a fairly light lunch and yogurt for breakfast.  Hoping to skip dinner.  Need to exercise but life got in the way yesterday as I had to sew up a quick Halloween costume without a pattern.  

Saturday is going to be difficult…
