July check in by the p tiger

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

How many of us are seekers, or soul searchers, or sensitive to the depths of the human condition? Enough, of course, to keep anyone willing to leave their isolation and reach out for healthy support to back up our own efforts to feel and do better!

My attitude and direction are fine even though my scale is short on registering much of any weight loss. I claim gratitude for this humid heat only for one reason: I don't have the usual appetite that has ruined my figure and burdened my carriage.

That I know by speaking openly and honestly of the (dare I say fight) plight to be back in a right sized body, I just remain committed to facing forward and encouraging myself to enjoy life for another (now) day. I CAN DO THIS.

It's not about being well ONCE I stabilize. It's about being well in every moment of my life. I don't get healthy once I get to a goal to lose this 25 lbs. It's to breathe in the self respect and love that holds me in the right direction. And so it is.

I was not hungry for a formal dinner of any kind. And that is a kindness gifted by my intolerably sensitivity to humid heat. Thank you Air Conditioning! You keep my spirits high.

honor the p tiger in you dale

    Just lost my post to you....a reoccurring problem, it seems.
    You look good in your newer pictures, Dale, even if not happy with your weight.
    I haven't lost any weight this year, it seems. I am holding steady between 149 - 151. As long as I can fit into size 10, or a 'M' on top, I won't worry. But, I do keep a daily eye on the scale. Wouldn't mind losing another 4 - 5 pounds, before my anticipated knee surgery in October. Less weight should really help in that instance.
    Worry a little bit about a family vacation at the NC coast this month, and a longer trip to visit family in Germany in Sept. I do have to stay vigilant, so, the weight doesn't creep up again.
    Did LENORE048 mention ice-cream? During the recent heatwave, actually still going on, I purchased Nestle's little Drumsticks @ 110 calories ea., both (mixed) Vanilla and Chocolate, enough to take the craving away. Just a thought.

    Well I too am willing to leave my isolation and reach out for healthy support to help me feel better and do better too. As far as the humid weather helping me to control my appetite I unfortunately reach for the ice cream carton in the back of the freezer that is meant for my husband! Oh brother what's a person to do. emoticon

    Here's to A/C or in my case an ocean breeze! Cooler days will come and our appetites will reset as will our desire to cook healthy foods. emoticon
