mamabird69's Journal, 22 August 2013

Not sure what I'm doing here but I do know that I loosened the reigns a little and it shows! No more pop...again! No more pasta...again!! Why do I get SO close then blow it????
201.2 lb Lost so far: 33.8 lb.    Still to go: 36.2 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Could be you still afraid??? I know that in the past I have "sabotaged" myself... I think maybe because I was afraid of failing, or something. I know, sounds dumb, but better that I sabotage myself than someone else"????" I wish I truly had the answer for this. But don't be afraid... and DON"T give up, you've come so far!almost half your goal. Hey, can I tell you something, Mambird... you are my inspiration... I am down to 197... I have been having "tummy" problems (diarrhea) but I've always had problems with that (IBS??) But I have been laying off the sugar, AND have been really careful not to eat past about 8 pm. That's the hardest for me, the late evening snacks. I've also pulled out my Juicer and have a juice "snack" OR I also have one of those Magic Bullets, great for making smoothies. The other day I made a Peanut butter, Banana, & chocolate one (when my banana's start getting too ripe, instead of throwing them out I freeze them, they will turn black, but that is only the peel) Sorry, don't mean to go on & on. But I am just so excited to be down to 197... AND I am so scared that if I am not careful the weight will 'sneak' back and attach itself to me! But I am determined to do this, this time. I believe a few years back I'd gotten down to about 170 (Weight Watchers) but there aren't any around here, besides I really can't afford the weekly fee any more. Anyway, my husband and I went camping for a week and I didn't 'watch' what I ate and put about 15-20 lbs back on, then there was a woman at the meeting that said something and I stopped going. Even former overweight people can be mean :-(....OK, I've run on enough... you'll be ok, tomorrow is a brand new day, as you say... "MAKE IT GREAT" Love and Hugs, Willow

Willow, thank you so much for the enouragement!!! You seriously just talked me down from just eating anything and everything today!!! I just told my sister that I wonder if I am subconsciencely sabatoging myself! Like my body is almost afraid to go under 200....I was soooo close! I woke up this morning SO mad and upset when I weighed that I could've cried!!! Seriously cried! This is hard hard work and I am sooooo happy that you broke that 200 mark because that is a great accomplishment and a great feeling!! I've done it before about 3-4 years ago and I know I can do it again thanks to friends like you here on FatSecert!! Thanks for the hugs... I needed them today!! I hope and pray all is going great for you today and this weekend!!! Love and hugs coming your way!!!
