My Journey to a Healthy Weight and Life!

{April 17, 2009}   Just a quick post

Hi all, just to let you know that I have not crawled under a rock somewhere.  I have just gotten super busy as my life sometimes get.  I am helping my mom with some of her doctor’s appointments.  Helping my mother in law with my sister in law who has mucked up her finances and housing royally.  I have been attempting to help my husband when all that is not going on to gear up and organize himself for finals.  And just been being a mom as best I can.  I have fallen off of my diet and keeping track of my food journal.  Going to have to go back to paper and such till I can go back and get the time to do it at the computer everyday.  The mission is to make myself realize I need to take back control.  I do this.  I feel that everyone needs my help and I forget to say when.  Enough.  I need to do me now today.   I do this though and this is part of that lifestyle change that needs to occur.  I know that many people think this is all about food, but it is how we use and see and feel food.  If that does not make sense, think about when you are super hunger or super upset, what food related thing goes through your head.  Is is I want chocolate, or ice cream or mash potatoes or soda?  Think about it.  What you using that food to do to you or for you.  I may be making mistakes, but I am also making amazing discoveries.  Straight from my mouth last night as I was drinking like 24 oz of soda (I felt I was having a bad day) I said to my husband, “This is my drug of choice!”  And I don’t even know what promoted that statement, but the message was profound.  Think about this.  I used to drink a two liter a day of soda or more and not even think about it, I always felt stressed or tired.  And now that I have been slipping into bad habits this last couple of weeks, a statement like that.  It is not the only thing I am realizing, but yet an awesome insight into myself none the less.  I do have a short video I hope to post this weekend.  It is my weigh in for April 11th, Good Friday.  So hope you all are doing well.  Remember leave me a comment and I promise to get back with you.  Smile this is the last chance that you get at this second then it is gone never to return again.  Don’t waste your time, strive, thrive and feel alive.  =D

I’ve been wanting to write you since I first joined Twine and found your Holistic Body Makeover twine that I choose to follow in your journey. I’m so glad your doing good. I love that even when you slip up you seem to have a good out look on things and know that feeling guilty and constantly beating yourself up about it won’t help you in the end. That is something I’m still working on myself. I’m doing better but, have fallen off my routine as of late and have yet to fully get back into the swing of things. It’s been a nagging pain for me for about a month now. But, I am still fighting my old response to things and I’m sure I’ll get back into it. I wanted to share with you a place I found last year that I have been using to help me. It’s called SPARKPEOPLE.COM. It’s a FREE site for diet, weight loss, and learning to eat healthy. They give you a nutrition tracker and a fitness tracker. You can join in teams of like minded people to talk with getting/receiving help along the way. They have their own workout videos for ALL levels of fitness. If something is too hard just work at your own pace. Too easy, add some weights r bend farther. I have found many articles that really informed me about things I would have never thought of. They have little quizzes to test your knowledge of things. Also, you get Spark Points for everything you do and you can use those points to give Spark Goodies (to yourself or other members) for all kinds of reasons. I have lost 40 pounds since I joined Spark People July 11, 2008. I hope you get a chance to check it out and I hope you find you like it. If you make it there just give me a shout. My member name there is cassdragon23.
