Weight Loss Surgery is NOT the easy way out

For the last six months I cannot tell you how many times people have given me that ugh look when I tell them I am trying to qualify for weight loss surgery. Or when they tell me are you sure you really want to…

Here I am

So I suppose a "first" post should describe who I am. 

hmmmmm.

Welp...I'm 30. I'm fat. I have a whiny dog (who is awesome). I'm in love. I have acquired cats that don't think my dog is as awesome as I do. I have a crazy family. But a great boyfriend who is aware and accepts that. But right now I'm just tired of being overweight.

I wasn't always this way.  As a matter of fact I was always thin growing.  I woudn't say skinny - but thin and shapely.…

Here we go again .............

Five years ago, I won my struggle with my weight. I worked hard, and lost 40+ pounds. I look great and felt even better. For the first time in my life I wore a size 6 jeans honestly felt like I'd won the lottery

I soon found that keeping the weight off was , MUCH more difficult than losing it to begin with. Then I fell into the trap of reading umpteen different health and fitness blogs and veering far , far away from what worked for me, my body and my lifestyle, and trying to emulate…

BIGGEST LOSER LESSONS AND HOW TO KEEP THE WEIGHT OFF

With the Biggest Loser being in the news lately, I wanted to take a look at what we can learn from the show and the controversy. The Biggest Loser is a reality television show and creating something for television, it has to be dramatic and captivating. As written in People Magazine, normal weight loss is not interesting. So they exercise them like crazy and give them tough challenges that no typical person losing weight would do or could sustain. The controversy over the latest winner's…

Getting Real for the First Time

You hear people say "today is the first day of the rest of your life," all the time in those inspirational stories of weight-loss that we have all watched way too many episodes of.  It's the first day of the rest of your life - we get it, but we refuse to apply it to ourselves because that would mean we'd have to get up and make a change.  It would force us to look at our behavior on an in-depth…

DIET OR EFFORTLESS WEIGHT LOSS? YOUR CHOICE!

So I am getting physical therapy and am in the room with the door closed and the therapist is working on my lower back, when I hear through the door someone talking about the diet that she is on. It made me sad and angry. Sad because it reminded me how I tried lots of diets to lose weight and when I was on the diet, I thought this was "the one" that was going to work. But they never did. After I lost the weight, I would start gaining it back within a few months and of course more. I did this…

ARE YOU STRUGGLING TO LOSE WEIGHT? HAVE YOU GIVEN UP HOPE? THERE IS A SOLUTION!

If you are like me and tried every diet and exercise program and spiritual and religious program and therapy and nothing worked and you feel hopeless, keep reading..... That's how I felt 5 years ago. I had been dealing with weight and food issues since elementary school. In sixth grade, the pediatrician put me on the first of many diets which included diet pills (uppers), yes that was a long time ago when the doctor didn't know better. I was a binge eater and sneak eater, but always…

IF YOU WANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT, YOU HAVE TO CHANGE!

My mentor Roy Nelson (www.thenelsoncenter.com) says that if we keep on doing what we’ve always been doing, we will keep on getting what we’ve always been getting. When I started his program, I was desperate and did whatever I needed to do to lose the weight, keep it off and get the feelings out. I soon found out that just as the food and weight was a symptom of a deeper issue, I had other things I was using to prop up the ego which needed to be…

WHAT WE EMOTIONAL EATERS HAVE IN COMMON WITH CELEBRITIES

With Phillip Seymour Hoffman's death, I am reminded that many celebrities not only act in their profession; but they put on an act in their personal lives as well. Acting as if we are ok when we are not; hiding behind pride and ego when we really feel bad about ourselves, that is what we emotional eaters have in common with celebrities. I put on a good front that I had a good life, that I knew what I was doing, that I had it together, that I was in control; when the truth was that inside I…

My Weight Loss Journey

On the Jenny Craig forums someone asked how to keep up their motivation once they've been on a plan for more than 6 months... it got me to thinking about what I've done in the past, what has worked and what hasn't worked. I think a large part of making the program into your lifestyle is your mindset. Here was my response:



I really started gaining weight in college when I completely stopped playing sports and led the typical college life of too much bad food,…

A Letter to Myself

A letter to my former self:
I look at you in the picture, a few days before Henna’s first birthday and these should have been some of the happiest times. But, the smile on your face is not a real smile. After each picture you kept wondering, why can’t your husband catch a flattering picture of you? But in reality you had been ignoring yourself for months. Ignored the scale, ignored mirrors, ignored your older clothes and just started to buy dresses so that you could hide under…

"Here I Go Again"

Having got on the scale this am--with many weeks having gone by, and not doing so, was jolted out of my sweet period of denial--to my new period of Sorry Reality. I am now within 5 pounds of being where I was at 35--100 pounds overweight--I am now 69--not a good thing for many reasons, the first being health;second, seeing a new Dr. Wenesday, and it is always nerve-wracking not knowing what the attitude…

Um, okay. I've been having some real time management issues, and I'm missing the gym like CRAZY. I haven't been on a treadmill in over a month and I feel wicked awful. On a positive note, I've been doing really well with my clean eating, and I think I can actually see some results. This is a new thing for me and I have to say, I love this feeling! So I'm shooting for a much larger version of this feeling and aiming to get back into e gym this week. With any luck, my husband will help me out… Continue

The dark side of 0 point foods.

I do not feel empowered by carrot sticks. NO matter how many I eat I still feel hungry. But I don't have enough points to eat anything I want to eat so here I sit with a large bag of carrots in sadness.
