❤ FEBRUARY 2019 CHALLENGE ❤



Recommended Posts

Hey all. I haven’t checked in in a while though I’ve been creeping.

Struggling with the no junk challenge. I seem to have issues with the whole NO thing. I would say I make 80% solidly good choices. 10% borderline. And 10% just like “what is this mess you are putting in your mouth?” Will keep on trucking. Every meal is a new chance.

Doing well on the exercise challenge. Yesterday my kids did the name challenge with me. The five year olds push ups were hilarious. Went to the gym today and did a 30 min strength/cardio circuit.

Here’s a combo no makeup selfie and three people I love love love. My three sons. ❤️❤️❤️

Apart from having a craptacular week - so many bad choices, so little energy to do anything. Plus I put 1.6 kilos of my precious loss back on! Have realised giving in to Carb cravings just makes it worse. The more carbs I eat, the more I wanna eat. So have gotten real about keeping my carbs under 30 net a day. Have done it two days running and I'm starting to feel better.

But anyhoo

11. I'm actually really happy where I am, I love rural Ireland. The scenery is breathtakingly green and beautiful, and the people are kind and friendly. But I'd love to revisit the old city of Sana'a in Yemen if there wasn't a devastating war on. I went there years ago to study Arabic and it's an amazing place. All the alabaster framed stained glass windows light up at night and look magical. I also loved living in far north Queensland. Tropical weather and rain forests FTW.

Pic of me with someone I love... Pass

Place I would go right now- Brazil to visit my friend before she heads off to Spain.

We keep missing each other, and i fear we have horrible timing. I may not travel abroad this year.

creative artistic trait pic attached and doubling for second portion of challenge of taping a pic in my (digital) journal (lol)

I like it because its current mood. I'm sooooo tired of the cold and dreary snow, I'm basically just wearing dark

hooded clothing until spring.

DAY 12

  • Starting to get the hang of this! Surprisingly doing pretty well on the "No junk food challenge." Even though temptation is everywhere!
  • Did some different exercises today. Trying to branch out a little.
  • I have a picture of myself with my sisters, that I thought I looked pretty good in. It's amazing how heavy I looked, but I didn't think I was that heavy at that time. If that makes any sense.
  • NSV today. I had flats on that I haven't worn in awhile. Started walking and they flew off my feet!!😂 Who knew, you could lose weight in your feet! LOL

FEB 10: I only wear makeup about twice a week so although this is my regular face, I never take pics without makeup. I wish I could wear it every day because its fun but my skin has been changing over the last couple of years and it gets angry if I do that :(

FEB 12: I am creative and it comes out in many ways. One of them is my baking and homemade bday decorations! My daughter's 7th bday was space themed this year.

Also, for the record, I am also doing the writing prompts but keeping them private. I'm more honest about things if I do it that way.

12. There is a picture of 16 Yr old me at a party with a school chum. It was taken at the one time I was a healthy weight (due to Weight Watchers and a crush on an aerobics teacher which meant I was at the gym everyday). I can see what healthy me looks like, because all my other photos (except for a scuba diving license) I'm overweight or obese.

13. Short poem by Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi, rahim Allah:
My heart has become able
To take on all forms.
It is a pasture for gazelles,
For monks an abbey.
It is a temple for idols
And for who circumambulates it, the Ka'bah.
It is the tablets of the Torah
And also the leaves of the Qur'an.
I believe in the religion
Of Love
Whatever direction its caravans may take,
Love is my religion and my faith.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled! 
       
      So excited to start this journey and become a new person!!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

    • Tabatha529

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
