Default What's changed for you?

I was feeling kind of blech this afternoon, so I ate 2 pieces of toast. I didn't feel too great about eating something so carby, but then I got to thinking, in the "old days" I would've eaten a sleeve of cookies and washed it down with a pint of Haagen Daas. Then I started thinking about all the other things that have changed along this journey...
  • I always fasten my seat belt now
  • I don't put off checking the mail, I attend to bills straight away.
  • I shower and brush my teeth regularly
  • I go to the doctor
  • I exercise regularly
  • My house is clean almost all the time
  • I don't spend too much time on the computer or in front of the TV
  • I'm taking a lower dose of my anti-depressant

What's changed for you?

I eat breakfast!
I have low blood pressure
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!

I'm no longer on anti-depressants
I make time for myself and DON'T feel guilty about it!
I actually enjoy my kids
"Take time to smell the roses" isn't just a saying for me anymore
I'm way more active than I have been in years
I try to find the positive in everything

I really agree with Tanee's statement that she is taking time to smell the roses. Me too! Me too!

My NY resolution was to simplify my life. I am doing everything I can to do just that. Getting rid of things, people, situations, etc. that take me away from what I really WANT and NEED to be doing.

I eat smaller (much smaller) meals, but am more satisfied with them.
I no longer think about cake constantly.
I treat myself better.
I feel like a success..
I understand myself better.
I feel energetic and sometimes run places for fun.
I no longer walk into a new exercise class and think, "OMG, I am the largest person here and won't be able to keep up and everyone thinks I'm disgusting". I now walk in wondering how long it will take me to get good and whether it'll become a part of my fitness program, even if I am the largest person in the class.

Great thread

Oh, here's the bandwagon, right where I left it

I exercise.
I have more patience.
I don't think about treats I'm going to have all the time.
I take better care of myself.
I eat smaller meals and don't take seconds.
I have more energy.
I'm more aware of what I put in my body.
I don't sit in front of the tv every night.
I play with my kids and have fun.

Everything CFMama said except substitute "dogs" for "kids."

I truly believe I can do anything I set my mind to.
I truly believe that, although I am not perfect, I am beautiful, I deserve to be happy, and I have as much right to exist on this planet as anyone/everyone else and to live my life the way I want to.

I remember I was starting to have a hard time getting around when I was still at 360 pounds. My asthma had gotten much worse.

I've maintained myself around 285 for a few years now. While I'm making a fresh start here and would like to lose more, I appreciate breathing easier and being much more flexible all around.

I don't have asthma attacks! My childhood asthma returned with a vengeance when I moved from NY to NM and since I've been working out I can breathe again!

  • I exercise at least 5 to 6 days a week with intensity and with real, dripping sweat.
  • I go to the doctor for regular check-ups. (I actually owe this one to my sweetie for insisting I go, but I do so now without griping)
  • I love cooking flavorful and healthy meals that rival what I can get in a restaurant.
  • I can walk through the pastry section of a grocery store and truly don't feel the call of my name.
  • It's been over a month now where I've gone to bed at night feeling proud of myself instead of laying there berating myself for being a pathectic loser.
  • The biggest change is that I really believe I'm on my way to being fit and healthy.
This is my final time 6/16/09

I can tie my shoes, bending over, and not be out of breath. and the bow is on the top of my shoe not the side of my shoe.
