The current big idea.

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Some strange part of me LIKES watching my 600 pound life and I am learning from it. Apparently if you eat less and move more you lose weight. Well in truth I know that but I didn't know I could actually do it. On the show he makes them lose 30 to 60 pounds on their own before he will approve the surgery. In other words they have to prove that they can change their eating habits. Well these folks are in much worse condition than me. They are heavier they are less healthful and they have terrible ideas about what is an appropriate amount to eat. They show it on camera. I hope that they encourage them to do outrageous things in order to make a better show. I hope no one really believes that they really need all that food when they are too round to leave the house for pities sake.

Still I am learning from these folks in the long or shorter run they manage to get approved, otherwise they wouldn't be on the show. So they manage to lose weight by themselves. So if my habits are better and my health is better and I am determined to I should also be able to lose 30 to 60 pounds by myself. Hence my return to sparkpeople. As someone on disability I am not really able to afford much financial type diet support and I know counting calories can work, so I am counting them with the help of this wonderful program.

I am also aware that positive attitude is vital so I am using my sparkpeople training to keep myself on track. I notice that even when I don't make my calories I still am losing weight anyway so I am tracking I am aiming for good calories and I am happy with the results even when I miss. How much more positive can I be? We have obtained a special talking scale that will weigh me. (When you are this heavy not all scales work for you.) So I can track my weight. I still have my weight watcher scale so I can weigh up my food into portions. By the way I had 1 serving of ice cream (which comes to a measly 1/2 cup) and I was satisfied by that so just goes to show what you can learn by trying something new.

I am having physical problems and I am working with my doctors to find out why I am so perpetually short of breath. I know I am heavy, this is known to me and them but my ability to breathe gets better and worse in somewhat of a random fashion so I want to track it down. I want to get back to the gym and I want to get back to being a good strong spark leader again.

If you want to really help tell me I am inspirational and encourage me to keep blogging. A wise woman knows what she needs and is not scared to ask for it.
