Going to try it the Spark People way . . . obviously my way ain't working!


No more eating while upset!
No more shopping while hungry!
No more eating in the living room or at my computer desk!
No more junk food in the cupboards! (sorry hubby!)
No more stinking thinking!
No more shame!
No more WHINING!!

I AM DONE WITH THAT! Those bridges are being burnt as I type!

I will eat when I am hungry & only when I am hungry!
I will eat before I grocery shop - before I leave the house always!
I will eat at my kitchen table with my hubby!
I will eat healthy snacks!
I will think POSITIVE thoughts only!
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. - From my fortune cookie, 10-17-09

Just sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Fitness Minutes: 582

My Goals:
My first goal is to feel better mentally. I am being treated for depression, anxiety, and agoraphobia w/panic attacks. I was never like this until the past 2 years. I want the old me back. My second goal is to lose weight. Being depressed has caused me to really put on the weight and I need to get if off!

My Program:
I am currently just logging my food intake, drinking my 8 glasses of water daily and getting off my butt and moving for at least 10-30 minutes a day.

Personal Information:
I am married, mother to two and grandmother to two. I have tried to always enjoy life, no matter the circumstances. Within the last 4 or 5 years, something let loose in me and I hit rock bottom. I am now learning to live with depression and anxiety. I WILL beat this darkness! I have fought many battles and won; this one is just a little tougher. I am learning that being thin will not make me happy; BUT, being happy will make my thin! I am learning to love my self, right where I am at.

Other Information:
I work for a home inspection business, a real estate agent, and sell Just Jewelry. My goal is to work from home as a virtual assistant. I am trying to make the time to take care of ME. It is hard to do after years of taking care of everyone else. But I hear it can be done!!

    Hey, Kim. I sure miss seeing you on the team threads. Guess you are balancing busy. You are in my prayers.

    Stopping by to check in and see how you are doing and to hopefully encourage your journey. I am focused this month on my way of thinking about food and health issues. Proverbs 23:7 says, "For as he thinks within himself, so he is" (NASB). Our thoughts greatly influence the things we do and I am realizing that I too easily revert back to old habits because I am not convinced in my heart and mind of some changes I need to make. So I am deliberately working to take every thought captive to obedience, recognizing those thought processes and search out new ideology / theology to correct my belief system where health issues are concerned. I pray for you and I today as we work to change from the inside out in ways that make us new creatures through and through.

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    When he might have won had he stuck it out;
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the goal is nearer than,
    It seems to a faint and faltering man,
    Often the struggler has given up,
    When he might have captured the victor's cup,
    And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out--
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far,
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
