I am doing something amazing! October 23, 2013 170 walking! Outside! During the daytime! Where there are people!

I know it does not sound like anything, but really it is. I walk all the time, at night that is.

I started walking with my mom at my local park, (forest with maintained paths). Then one day...I decided to go walking before the sun went down. The rest is history.

Speaking of, I am going out right now.

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde October 21, 2013 171.8

I was good for most of the day, then evening happened...

I decided I wanted to have a cheat day. OK, not a good idea!

I have got to learn how to do this better. I need to be able to have treats without eating like tomorow is the end of the world. Ok, I didnt eat thaaaat much, but I wanted to.

Its like I have two speeds. One is I am on a diet, dont even think of deviating from my diet. Then there is the other me. The one with no stop. Eat until my stomach hurts. Thats the one that needs work. If I cant control my Mr Hyde, I will just gain my weight back.

People that have motivated me so far.... October 18, 2013 171

I started thinking last night of the people who have helped me on my fat loss journey (85 lbs so far). I decided to make a list...

Me and my blog
Diane from Fit to the Finish
Life as I know it
My son

Its a short list I know, but the impact that they have had is awesome.

So I am sending out a big THANK YOU! to them and lots of cyber hugs too!

Finally! October 17, 2013 173

I finally cancelled my internet service with Rogers! I have been saying I was going to do that for months, but I could not get the gumption to do it. I hate calling a call center and fighting. It makes me anxious and sick. Weird I know.

I wont go on and on about how much I hate them, or how bad I feel they have treated me over the last the last year, but you can imagine.

Anyhoo....I feel like crap today. I dont know why either. I think I am getting stress headaches, and my blood sugar may be too low. No idea.

I am also being a complete lazy bum today. Because I am feeling dizzy? Or am I just wallowing in my own laziness? Both I think.

One more big push! October 16, 2013 171.8

One more big push. That is what I am going to say to myself to get to the end of the year. I have a little over two months left and I want to lose another 20 lbs before Christmas. It is doable, especially if I stay true to my diet, and add in some more exercise. I am going to kick it into high gear and give it one more big push.

85 lbs down, 20 to go! Now is the time.

Phew, Thank Goodness that is over! October 15, 2013 171.8

I made it out alive! Geez...time of the month and a Holiday! Thats just not right.

No worries though, I am back to my diet. Sadly, I am farther from reaching my goal then ever. Grrrr.

I started walking with my mom, which is pretty cool. I finally got her on a diet, and she is going out for long walks. Surprisingly she is truly dedicated to walking everyday. Which helps me, because I am not.

The weather has been beautiful, and the walks in the woods have been fabulous. There is nothing like a New Brunswick fall.

I am eating a little tooo much! October 9, 2013 172.2

I have been eating a little too much for the last couple of days, and I am blaming Aunt Flo.  Ugh! It explains so much. I want to eat eat eat...

In other news. My mom is getting married in a couple of weeks. Its just going to be a private ceremony, and no one other than R. and I are invited. How cool is that? She has been with him for over 20 years, and my son is over the moon to be the best man.

Mom said it is going to be very casual, no dresses or anything. I have nothing to wear so I am glad its going to be informal.

Plateau vs Maintenance October 5, 2013 172.2

Once again, I am practicing maintenance. When is it considered a plateau? When your weight stays the same for a week? A month? I hate it. It is so easy to say f&*k it!

When I first hit one of these, I got pretty upset and depressed. It is hard to keep your momentum when you are stuck at park.

Then one day Diane from Fit to the Finish, suggested that I look at it as maintenance.

That little word twist in the brain is enough for me to keep going strong.

Saggy skin October 3, 2013 172.8

I lose weight, I gain it. I lose weight, I gain it. Or that is what it feels like. Last month I lost 10 lbs pretty quick, then spent the rest of the time going up and down. Thats ok, I measured myself and my inches are there!!

My eyes (the part between my eyebrow and the eye lid) is all droopy. The more weight I loose, the more it becomes noticeable. Who would have thought I had lots of fat there?

Another weird body fact that came to my attention. My stomach is kinda saggy. Its all loose skin, and it feels funny. My stomach is hard underneath (exercise), but I have this saggy belly. Call me weird, but I was happy when I noticed.

It means I am getting there.

So very tired... October 2, 2012 172


Had a long heavy lifting kind of day.

I dont have much to say today, but I feel I do better (with my diet), when I make an effort to write often. It helps me keep in touch with my will power.
