Time to get REALLY Real

Monday, July 27, 2009

Ok . . . . I got on the scale this morning . . . 166. I gained 5 lbs. Well . . . if I am being really honest, 166.8, so almost 6 lbs. What's going on? Why is this happening? I had so much success in the past . . . .

I hear my inner voice telling me it's ok, have that second helping, have some more ice cream, you will start fresh tomorrow. Well, it's tomorrow and it is time to get real.

Yes, I am dealing with ALOT of stress and emotional issues. Yes, my father passed away and that has just thrown me so off track. Yes, their are dysfunctional people in my life who cause me such pain and anguish, but . . . there are far worse things I can be dealing with. I am young, healthy; I have a beautiful home, loving husband, spunky daughter! I feel good, I have great friends . . . life is good.

So it is time to get REALLY Real!! I have to stop. Today. Stop talking myself into that second helping. Stop talking myself out of going to the gym. Drink all my water, blog, log and chat with my friends on SP.

I did this before and I can do this again!

    Hey Jennifer. You have done an amazing thing. You are here blogging about this! That's a major step girl!! When an addict really wants to binge they hide. I only hope that all of us blog when we loose control.

    Ok, now you will feel so much better about everything when your in control. Your only one meal away from feeling good again. That's not to much. I didn't know your dad but I bet he wants more than anything for you to be happy with yourself.

    Come on girl we can do this. My son is leaving to Iraq in the morning and I've done a little over eating myself. Tomorrow is a new day for both of us.

    I'm adding you as a friend. We can do this! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    jennifer! i am so sorry about the loss of your Father! It's tough and please allow yourself to feel all of the emotions and feelings you feel. There are no right or wrong feelings when it comes to dealing with grieving as long as it doesn't paralyze you!

    My Friend we are here to help you through this. Please be patient with yourself but really try and not sedate the feelings with the food!
    allow yourself to feel them! I know i didn't allow myself and it wasn't helpful!

    Hugs and prayers for you

    I'm so sorry about your Father. That has to be tough. The worst of all situations I can imagine. We're here for you. Come chat with us. Pour your heart out. I'm just getting my feet solidly back on the ground after thinking all the rules didn't apply to me either. We can do this together!!

    Hugs, my dear,

    I'm sorry to hear about your father Kamper1,I struggled just as you are when I lost mine.I gave myself permission to not be so hard on myself with my weight during that time ,except it really backfired and I gained back all I had lost. Give yourself the time you need to really feel your emotions,then gradually ease back into healthier habits.You are not in this alone and I believe you will succeed in all your goals.

    I just started a new challenge to lose 10 lbs in 30 days. It gives you daily challenges and I know it works because I have done it before by myself. The last time I did this I lost 14 lbs.!! So feel free to join my team and do as I do. My mission is to help others the way others have helped me out. I know that if people work together as a team they can accomplish so much. Also, that some of us just need a litte competition to get our blood pumping. Challenge yourself. I can't guarantee that it will work for you, but if you stick with it, I have no doubts.

    We will really glad to have you!

    Go to Member Created Challenges, then Specific Time Period Challenges, then sort it by the newest and You should see my challenge on the first page. Lose 10 lbs in 30 days..... or you can visit my spark page and look at my teams. It is there too!
