Default Lo Carb #43 April Fool, the jokes on me.

Speaking of being foolish. I continue to play games with my eating program. ANd my exercise. I hurt no one but myself.
I think of the many dreams that I put off by not doing what needs to be done. SOme things are simply vanity such as wearing a 2 piece bathing suit, buying sexy underware, wearing sleeveless tops.
Somethinga are doing things lioke scuba diving and white wtaer rafting.
Health issues like high blood pressure, diabetes.

The foods that I cheat on only bring me a milisecond of "pleasure".

Eating is to simply nourish my body and if I want to lose weight I must take in less and move my body more.

Well I am off to the gym with lots to think about!

Hey all,
Gosh the week is flying by. Not eating much can't seem to find the time. Must stock up on some lo carb bars to have w/ me.

So far have exercised 2 times this week. Hope to get there after work.

Sue I wonder what the"key" is to this eating thing. But I guess if we figured it out we'd be milanares. It os as simple as eat right and exercise and as complicated as How screwed up my head is at any given moment. I allow so many things to cloud my judgement. And these things keep me from the desires and goals and dreams that I have. SOme are "legitimate" ones such as a health some are "foolish" like underware. But they are all individualized and "OK".

Pam, I continue to pray for you and look forward to your return.
Melody, I miss you and your energy. Take care

Kina check in when you can, It's hard to juggle school and family.

Hello to the lurkers and MIA

Well I am talking to myself.
DId OK food wise. Stuck to the plan
Had lo fat yogurt and kashi go -lean for breakfast
Weight watchers frozen lunch meal
beef, salad and beans for dinner

went to the gym after work

Water was so so.

Being busy sure doesn't leave time for cheating.

I saw a girl at the gym in teh afternoon who I know works out in the morning. And I mean work out. She's on teh eliptical machine. Not holding on, going backwards. Face red and sweating. Talk about motivated and motivating. I think about the phrase you get back what you put in. ANd looking back to when I was successfully losing and eating right it was because I was whole heartedly putting alot of effort into it. It wasn't always an effort to do either. I just did waht I needed to and saw results. I wasn't dragging mysefl to the gym, I just went. I wasn't cheating or wanting to cheat, I just ate what I should. It was allot about attitude. I was worth the effort.

I must remember I get back what I put in.
I need to move my body everyday and I need to eat right. That cookie or candy isn't good for me. ANd it isn't worth the minutes I put into exercise.

Well it's weds. No w/o yesterday. Ate well though. Still sruggling with teh water.
Talking to myself here again. WHere is everyone. Hope all is well.

No new insights, wish things would come together. Frustrated that when warm arrives I have put on 20# since last year and am certainly no where near as toned.

We got that snowlast weekend and it's still with us. Very depressing as we now have had snow since 11/02. 6 months is along time.

WEll lets see how today goes

well I have been MIA with eating as well as the board.

I had put in a lot of OT this last 2 weeks all in the last 6 days. been car shopping and doing tons of things that make more time to spend for me. no cleaning in the house yet but I am starting today. TOM hit in the middle of the OT and blew me out of the water.

I agree with the get back with what you put in. I have not been putting in anything but food and junk!! so what did i get back?? a big butt!

But anywahs I have hit the 40 lb mark for weight gain then yesterday I carried a 40 lb bag of salt and wow it sure is heavy!! I need to lose 2 of those now!!! I know I can do it I just need to get off my duff and realize that i need this. I would be so much more active and healthy and have more energy!!!

Well it is on the run for me!!!

Hey Sue I am glad to see you were able to post. I miss you. I miss everyone for that matter. I am afraid that people are staying away because they aren't OP. Hence no good news to post.
My gosh waht a long winter. And it it sure is hangg on here. I know it sure makes it hard to move about for me. OT is hard. Are you still working teh night shift? How is teh family? How are you?
I know I am very frustarted with myself, for the ground I have lost.

Yesterday ended up in a carb frenzy which I used to cope with a very bad day.
SO goes another day and another day that could have been used to work toward my goal. WHich obviously isn't in the top 5 goals. Or is easily toppled off the top.

Well Lets see what today brings

Well the week is over. No loss there Both realistically and figuratively. No pun intended.
Only worked out once. And it looks like I continue to whine.
I am meeting my sisters for lunch tomorrow and might do some shopping in Syracuse before we meet.

The new job keeps giving me "opportunities for growth" but the clinic continues to run.
Well have a good weekend

Hey Sue congrats on the new to you car!!!!! Car shopping can be so stressful. But it si nice to have something nice and reliable.
ALos I know how hard you work in all of your realms. You deserve it!
I am sorry about the gain. I also am 22# over my lowest. ANd I am so mad at myself when I think of all teh effort I put in myself to get there. And teh clothes that I gave away and could use now. I had to buy a size 24 pants yesterday. Not happy about that at all.

But A new day is dawning. Another opportunity to get back on track.



This is something that I thought was funny.

A WEEK AT THE GYM

If you read this without laughing out loud, then there is something

wrong with you. This is dedicated to every woman who ever attempted to

get into a regular workout routine.

Dear Diary...

For my fiftieth birthday this year, my husband (the sweet dear)

purchased me a week of personal training at the local health club.

Although I am still in great shape (from playing on my high school

softball team), I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and

give it a try.

I called the club and made my reservations with a personal trainer named

Bruce, who described himself as a 26 year old aerobics instructor, and

model for athletic clothing and swim wear. My husband seemed pleased

with my sudden enthusiasm to get started. Well, the club encouraged me

to keep a diary to chart my progress, so here it goes:

Monday:

Started my day at 6:00am . Tough to get out of bed, but found it was well

worth it when I arrived at the health club to find Bruce waiting for me.

He is something of a Greek God - with blond hair, dancing eyes and a

dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!! Bruce gave me a tour and showed me

the machines. He took my pulse after five minutes on the treadmill. He

was alarmed that my pulse was so fast, but I attribute it to standing

next to him in his Lycra aerobic outfit. I enjoyed watching the skillful

way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my workout today.

Very inspiring . Bruce was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although

my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole time he was around.

This is going to be a FANTASTIC week!

Tuesday:

I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door. Bruce

made me lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the air-then he put

weights on it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made

the full mile. Bruce's rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I feel

GREAT!!

It's a whole new life for me.

Wednesday:

The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying on the toothbrush on the

counter nd moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia
in

both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I

parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot. Bruce was impatient with me,

insisting that my screams bothered other club members. His voice is a

little too perky for early in the morning and when he scolds, he gets this

nasally whine that is VERY annoying. My chest hurt when I got on the

treadmill, so Bruce put me on the stair monster. Why the **** would anyone
invent a

machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators? Bruce told

me it would help me get in shape and enjoy life. He said some other ****
too.

Thursday:

Bruce was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed as his thin,

cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being a half an
hour

late, it took me that long to tie my shoes. Bruce took me to work out with

dumbbells.

When he was not looking, I ran and hid in the men's room. He sent Lars to

find me, then, as punishment, put me on the rowing machine-which I sank.

Friday:

I hate that ******* Bruce more than any human being has ever hated any

other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic little

cheerleader.

If there was a part of my body I could move without unbearable pain, I

would beat him with it. Bruce wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't have
any

triceps!

And if you don't want dents in the floor, don't hand me the &*@*#$ &*@*#$

barbells or anything that weighs more than a sandwich. (Which I am sure you
learned in

the sadist school you attended and graduated magna cum laude from.) The

treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher. Why
couldn't

it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?

Saturday:

Bruce left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly voice

wondering why I did not show up today. Just hearing him made me want to
smash the

machine with my planner. However, I lacked the strength to even use the TV
remote and

ended up catching eleven straight hours of the *[email protected]#&& Weather Channel.

Sunday:

I'm having the Church van pick me up for services today so I can go and

thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my husband
(the

*******) will choose a gift for me that is fun -- like a root canal or a

hysterectomy

Well lets look to a week to do what we know works, avoid what we know screws us up and give and get support from each other so that we can win this battle

Default Remember Me!

Hi Ladies (maybe even men, I don't know who may be lurking)! I hadn't realized that you all had made a new thread. I am so sorry! I hate apologizing every time I pop my head in. I am trying as well as one can.

The semester is ALMOST over...thank goodness! I plan to lose 30 lbs by the end of the year! I am going to do it. I am getting so disgusted with myself. My "love" handles are starting to poke out enough that DH noticed...not that he minds. But once he notices and mentions it that gets my burners on high alert. So once this darn semester is over, which is the beginnning of May, I will be setting a daily regime to get that darn scale to MOVE!

Today marked my 30 th birthday! It was a wonderful day. I had TWO cakes...as if I needed more than one...as if I declined! Well we only celebrate our birthdays once a year! My parents took us out to eat chinese...ugh talk about buffet! It was amazing as always. I received great presents and ecards. It was a great day.

Well, people, it is late and I have class in the morning! I am glad to see Sue and Pat still getting some input on the board. Where are the rest of the gals? I hope to see you all in soon!

I will talk to you all again. Hugs & Smiles,
Kina
