Again, I appreciate Jeanne's wisdom! I have nothing else to offer.

I am so proud of you! I GET the statement about finishing. And, I agree with Marla, I still think you look great!


I agree with Jeanne and Kaylynne...and, uh, me....again....ha.

Way proud, lady.

Hey all....

busy day....but in the midst, I got a chance to actually sit in my living room....my quiet, kid-free living room...and doze in front of a Jets game....where they were winning. The moon must be in the seventh house....and Jupiter has aligned with Mars..... wow. Beautiful afternoon.

Two chickens are roasting in the oven...nice Sunday dinner on tap for tonight. I would call David...but apparently lost with his wallet is some card he needs to renew his monthly phone bill....so he has no phone. And there is no house phone where he is living. ugh.... tough having a dirtbag for a kid....and I say that with all due respect to the lad. I adore him....but....geez....

(chicken smells so good.....lemon juice, onion and garlic in the cavity....salt/pepper/rosemary and thyme....[parsley and sage had another gig...ha].....and chicken broth and white wine in the pan....oh em gee.)

Lori....I think you nailed it on the head.... not wanting it badly enough to go through it all again. Personally, the satisfaction of accomplishing all that I thought I couldn't was great....but it wasn't enough to bring joy and peace...to me or my family.

Right now I'm content being pudgy....but working on staying healthy. My eating is not wonderful, either. Good days and bad days. I had one thought going into today....just a daily goal....no sweets today. So far, so good. Actually, I'm glad I popped in to say hey, so I can remind myself....whew.

One day at a time.

Jeanne....I appreciate so much your counsel.... find what works with your life....and do it.

Lori....if you're like me....the eating tends to throw the exercise off. If i'm not having a good day, the YAD slips in.... they definitely go hand in hand.

But, I also know I am in no mood to eat rabbit food and starve myself.

so, I plug along.... no sweets today. We'll work with that...and press on.

need to go peel potatoes.....

love to all...

Richie-- just had to pop back in and say how wonderful you are to be there for your son and daughter-in-law-- we had zero help....ZERO....for most of our parental life....and our in-laws were 40 minutes away.

I called my mother-in-law the morning I was bleeding early in my pregnancy with Aaron...."I'm bleeding. I need to get to the doctor. Can you come watch the kids?" This was 8:30.

Her reply...."Well, I have a dentist appointment at 1:00. I can get there about 3:30....would that be okay?"

um...no.....

Called a friend of mine who had plans with her sister.....she dropped everything and came over.

My goal one day is to be the grandma that my kids never had.....so, on God bless you, woman. The memories you make will last forever.
October 14, 2012 3:10 PM
I <3 my wonderful friends here, and hope to be even a bit of the mothers and grandmother that you ladies are.

Popping in to show off the hair cut. Chopped off 8 inches and couldn't be happier. The pic isn't the greatest but I love the style. Greg already knows that he has probably seen the last of my crazy long hair days, but he likes this too.

Good day. :-)

Cute! I'm on my phone so pardon my lack of typing skills. I am so tired and rummy from working (started in at 5 this morning) that I somehow let my daughter talk me into letting her bleach my hair.

QUOTE:

I've been reading all along for the past two years and I still have to ask: Do you know why it happened? I remember there were vacations, deployments, job starts and what all. I do think that before you start work on getting back to where you were, you have to know how it is you left. I think there were a lot of good and some not-so-good reasons but that it boils down to: whatever work you do to get back, it has to be work you can keep doing when you get there.


I've been thinking about this Jeanne. There is a list 4 miles long that I could blame it on... but the bottom line.... I stopped wanting it enough to really work for it. I can point my finger and blame this or blame that, but the truth is that I became lazy, stopped caring, stopped working so hard.



Lori, you are so energetic, always on the go, always having to have something to do. "Lazy" is not a word that I see as applying to you at all.

QUOTE:


Can I get back to the level I was at? Who knows. I put a lot of time in it. I don't have that time now. Eating is a big deal. It hasn't been great. It's the first thing to tackle. I have ups and downs. They equal getting nowhere, other than a few pounds heavier every few months.



THIS is what makes more sense to me. You were putting a lot of time into fitness and you don't have that time anymore. As Marla said,

QUOTE:

Personally, the satisfaction of accomplishing all that I thought I couldn't was great....but it wasn't enough to bring joy and peace...to me or my family.



The balance of time spent exercising and time spent on life responsibilities may mean that getting back is going to take more time.

Then, goals.

QUOTE:


Goals and rules are important. I think I need to set some for myself. I've been floating around too long just existing. Goals are tricky. It's hard to accept when you don't meet them, which leads to defeat, yet you need them.

I had set the goal to be under 160, (which I haven't seen for a good 6 weeks) by Tuesday. I was Friday morning. Barely, but I was. Yesterday after the tri I was HUNGRY. I didn't pig out, but the scale was up this morning.



I thought a lot about this today. I think the goals of being at a certain weight, or running a race or at a certain speed have a potential danger in them beyond the effect of not meeting them. I think they can allow you to take your focus off what you're going to do today. If you're going to be running a race next month, then training can start tomorrow or Tuesday or whenever. In other words, it can allow a certain "manana" attitude to creep in - I'll go running tomorrow, I'll start eating better after the weekend. It can allow you to skip today or allow YAD to slip in. Whatever your goal is, my question is: what are you doing today to meet that goal? And I'd ask that question every morning - what am I doing today to meet the goal? And then my commitment is to today's decision. This is what I mean by taking it one day at a time. It means - today is a day I'm working towards my goal - without exception.

So Marla set a goal of "no sweets today". That's exactly right. Work on today, every day.

And, then, you snuck in this one!!

QUOTE:



Then we decided last minute to do a race today. I did the 10K, Tom did the 1/2. Those kinds of races and drinking sports drinks and eating because you are starved half to death can play a number on the scale.



You did another race!! Well done. No starving yourself, though.

Finally,

QUOTE:

So Jeanne, while you have your rules and what you call your scale obsession, what that gives you is enough push to keep at it. You are scared to death you will backslide. With good reason. It happens fast, happens easily, happens before you even realize it's happening.



Yup, that's why I'm so scared. I wonder sometimes if I'll grow tired of my fear and want to let it go. I've been thinking that I'm not really allowing myself to enjoy my new slimmer size and I should. It's going to take some time to find the right balance.

Agh. This waking up sick to my stomach, with lower belly pain(ish) is driving me nuts. I love waking up in the morning, go to bed looking forward to it. I know, I am weird, but I do.

For the past few months I awaken to my heart pounding and nausea. It is just like when I was preggers with Kelly. The difference is I feel better when I go #2 (tmi?) and I KNOW I ain't pregnant! bigsmile or sad not sure which laugh

Went to the dr and he said likely IBS-that's it. No counsel, no medication? Not like this dr at all.

It makes for a conundrum. When I awake I am sick, which makes me want to not move, which makes me stay in bed, which makes me sicker. I have to remind myself that when I get up and move I feel better within 1/2 hr. It is like having to say "You know that walking on this broken leg will make it feel better!"

I have tried bland foods for the day, no spicy stuff at all, no tomato saucegrumble , and no grease at all. Even on white bread/potato/rice days still feel this way.

Now it is better when I eat less. Yesterday I worked at the diner, ate 1/2 egg sandwich, a bow of stew I made with lean beef, 2 slices of rye bread and 1/2 a banana. That's it. This morning was 'not as bad' Really bad is 3am waking feeling like I am having a panic attack. Heart pounding bad, stomach pain HORRIBLE, and throwing up. I tried xanax to see if it IS a panic attack, not like I havent had life changes this year. Nope.

So here I am wanting to feel good, but feeling crappy (pun intendedwink )

I put my life info out there to my friends because with all your wisdom and experience in life, someone may give me a suggestion I can use. Aside from not eating at all, or going to sleep, nothing else has worked.

I was looking in the mirror this morning. My chubby picture from yesterday is horrible. .


I had to look 3 times to find a picture I THINK you are referring to. Honestly Lori.

We are so damn hard on ourselves. Now it isn't as if I cannot understand how good you felt in that black bikini, I get it. I never got to that point, but even at 135 with muscles and flatter stomach, I was happy and proud. I pine for that but it IS achievable.

How hard were you working for that body? It was part time job for you, and when you slipped for 1 week on vacay you gained like 10 pounds.

You look GREAT!!! Healthy, happy. Sure having a flat tummy is fun, but is it realistic with the life you lead? Full time job which you ROCK, kids that need you, hubs that enjoys your company. Lovely home.

I hope and pray you can enjoy your fitness level NOW. You did a TRI for crying out loud (which I would be if I tried it)

I don't know if this all gelled............but I just want you to know you are one of my Heros woman. You are healthy and look great!

Ok, so this morning I go online, checking out my usual news websites to feed my politics obsession.

And there is this: http://www.youtube.com/user/CHANEL

At first, not thrilled with the hair and beard but after a couple of times watching it, well, there is that jawline, those eyes and that voice. Sigh. And that mostly hidden neck chain. Sigh again.

Finally, perfume companies are starting to understand why women buy perfume.

Morning BT,

Sorry I haven't been posting much, but I have been reading. Sometimes I get in these moods where it is better to be silent instead of posting something where my negativity may show through or complain about something that nobody can change except myself.

First things first...Kaylynne, Shuntae, Kati, Jeanne, Marla, Lori...heck the whole Black Team that has participated in any kind of race. I am so proud of all of you. You saw, you did, you conquered! Most importantly, you didn't give up, whether your heart was in it or not doesn't matter, you did it flowerforyouheartflowerforyouheartflowerforyouheart

I wanted to also comment on what I experienced when it came to reaching and maintaining my goals. I see so much of what a lot of you you are struggling with and it reminds me so much of how I was. The buying of the candy, the YAD mentality, the I don't want it bad enough, the doing everything right and finding out it was a health issue that was "partly" to blame, the I'm too busy and have to shovel in whatever is available.

All these excuses are valid, but what changed for me is I had to look at it as as one would religion/faith, which is odd because most of you have probably concluded, I am not religious. But, we have all known someone that no matter what they say or do their faith shines through even during times when situations are overshadowed by life. They are being challenged by life but still do their morning devotionals, still attend church even in bad weather or nourish their soul at home when they can't get out. When bad things happen. they may sulk and have doubt, but they don't abandon, they go through the motions until something clicks again.

Losing weight and maintaining, for me, had to be in the very core of who I am. I had to do it for me and only me. If I screwed up. I didn't just quit completely. When life got busy, I faltered, but being healthy was still the fabric of who I was and who I wanted to be. Yes, I have been accused of being obsessive about it particularly in the beginning before I found the right balance, but I don't think it is possible to have extreme goals without being extreme. It is hard and if your goals are attainable and reasonable, it can be done. You have to ask yourself whether you are willing to have this as such an important aspect in your life because even if you are doing this just for you, it does affect those around you (aka religion) and those who are not on the same page may find your new way of life irritating and inconvenient. The good news is over time it just becomes who you are and others get used to who we have become. The hardest part is excepting ourselves flaws and all.

I think this team is the best...every single one of you keeps plugging away and that is what it takes. I am really glad I found this group and I hope all of you find the formula to the success that you want heart

Diana,

An excellent testimony. Yes, this is where I want to go: "Losing weight and maintaining, for me, had to be in the very core of who I am. I had to do it for me and only me. If I screwed up. I didn't just quit completely. When life got busy, I faltered, but being healthy was still the fabric of who I was and who I wanted to be. "

I'm going to quote it all on my blog, which I keep as a reminder for myself, so it won't disappear over time.

Thank you,

Jeanne

Edited to add:

As I look back on how I was over the years - yes, busy with kids, living overseas, being a SAHM, being a grad student and Mom, being a working Mom - underneath I still had the standards I have today. Those standards were that being healthy, eating healthily, staying fit, not being in the "overweight" and "obese" categories were very important - to myself, to my responsibilities to my family, to my responsibility as a human being on this planet (that's my religious point of view.) But I spent many years failing to meet those standards - trying to ignore that I had them and trying to ignore that I was failing them. It made me unhappy and an unhappy person to all those around me. I tried and sometimes succeeded in meeting them and then eventually gave up and quit. It seriously damaged how I felt about myself and what kind of person I was.

I spent years with my head down, facing backwards and my eyes closed. Which is why I agree with Diana wholeheartedly and I'll say again: it doesn't matter where you are on your journey - struggling up hill, stuck in the mud or sailing along in the sunshine - as long as you're facing forward and staying positive.

Oh, heck, I'll take a picture later after I work out and take a shower. I didn't attempt to do anything with it yesterday, just let it dry on its own. Make I'll think it looks better if I do something with it and put a little makeup on. Not holding my breath...

First, I have to get more work done. I worked practically all weekend. I want a day off, darn it.

When it comes to hair color, I wish they would make an "undo" conditioner for these very reasons. I went to dye my hair a deep mahogany once and I came out looking like a cranberry-head. Live and learn. I ended up going to the salon to get it fixed because I was afraid I would fry my hair even worse.

Does this mean we are not going to see a picture? laugh

Happy Monday.

Not feeling too well today. Better than yesterday but still rough. I'd have loved to stay home but I tell my kids that unless they're puking or running a fever they have to at least try to get through the day. Dang it for having to practice what I preach.

Yesterday I felt like I'd been run over by a mack truck. I couldn't get comfortable no matter what I tried. The crappy thing is that if I hadn't of been so darn sore I'd have felt pretty good. But, since I couldn't get comfortable standing, sitting, laying down, etc. I seeked comfort in food. Eggs, cinnamon bread and a coffee/hot chocolate drink for b'fast. Leftover Casey's pizza for lunch. 6 mini donuts, 2 rice krispie treats for snacks and chili and cheesey potatoes for dinner. I didn't even bother getting on the scale today. This morning I woke up not quite so sore, but with the headache from he!!.

Anyway.

Lori, great job this weekend!
Shuntae, I like your new haircut.

I haven't colored mine in 5+ years. Shoot, I am HORRIBLE about even keeping it trimmed. Hence the large chops every 2 years or whatever.

Would LOVE color and highlights, but 1) I am too cheap to keep going to get them done and 2) I want to keep swimming and I'm afraid the chlorine will kill my hair!

Thanks Kati!!
