QUITTER SOMETIMES WIN…

IT’S BEEN ABOUT FOUR OR FIVE MONTHS SINCE I’VE SMOKED A CIGARETTE. I QUIT WITHOUT THE HELP OF OTHERS. I HAD SMOKED FOR ALMOST 18 YEARS AND I’M 33 NOW. PEOPLE WOULD TELL ME OH HOW BAD IT WAS AND WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU. I JUST COULD NOT TAKE THE PRESSURE AND IT MADE ME WANT TO REBEL MORE. I DID IT ON MY OWN AT MY OWNPACE (DOING THE SAME ABOUT MY WEIGHT). I FEEL GOOD BOUT IT. I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING THAT HAS GREAT MEANING TO ME.  PROUD TO BE A QUITTER… AND I AM SO WINNING…

Stress…

I had been so proud of myself, because I had continued to do the right thing as far as my health is concerned. I had walked several miles almost everyday, but still no sign of real weight lose. Well, that’s ok I’ll push harder and see what happens. And yes, I have already changed my eating habits. I just need to focus and let it happen. Don’t know what else to do.

counting calories… really???

I’m not trying to forbid myself from eating anything.  You know whatever you tell yourself you can’t have you want more, but my real problem is portion control. That’s where I find this counting calories funny. You look on the back of a label and read the calories and it shows you a number. Not so fast… You have to find whats the serving size is a how many serving is in the package your eating/drinking. That sounds easy enough right.  But keeping track isn’t. Don’t forget to count that gum your chewing… 🙂

 

hard work + weight loss = success

Wondering if I lost some weight, would I have more success in finding a job?! just thinking the employers group insurance would be affected not only cause I’m over weight but also a former smoker. With weight being the issue at hand. I need this to be a successful(In both my job search and weight loss). I’m noticing lots of women and men getting in shape and those same people seem to be doing well in their professional life. Think bout it!!! Many people equate “fat” with lazy. I’m just saying that can be the reason you’re not getting the job.

Walking how much is enough???

As a kid I was slim. Always running and walking places. During High School the kids neighborhood walked  a couple miles or so back and forth to school. Physical Education played a great role in maintaining that slim active person I once was. Now as an adult I have not done anything to keep fit. I stopped walking everywhere. And started driving through any fast food place I lived near. As I think about get rid of the weight I can’t help but think that it all my fault. Although I was raised to clear my plate before leaving the table, habits can be broken.

with lowering my sugar intake and adding more veggies and fruit I now feel that exercise with complete the process. But is walking enough??? how much walk is sufficient??? Since september of last year I’ve been walking. I have not lost a pound as a matter of fact I gained 30 pounds and no I’m not pregnant…  🙂 tomorrow is a new day of exploring this weight loss journey…
