Feel Good Friday


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*

Well, I won’t be home to link up with this meme today but I am thinking of all of you.

*

Today I am in Karatsu, Japan. I have three posts about it, here, here, and here.

*

I am here having tea and looking out at a beautiful garden. Later, I will buy the biggest bag of rice that I can carry home. This place has my favorite tasting rice. I’m a wuss and I guess 10 pounds will be it, unless I have already bought too much to carry and will be shipping it to the airport.

*

Have your best week ever.

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY


The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday thing. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!

*

Being very disgruntled about things today means I NEED this meme today.

*

Five things I am happy about are:

1. On vacation I released another 5 pounds and now weigh 17 pounds less than I did in early 2010.

2. I easily fit into some previously tight shorts today.

3. I am feeling deeply contented and happy after visiting family.

4. Most of the mangos on my tree waited till I got home to ripen and my coffee beans are ready for me to start harvesting them.

5. Hubby and I are going for a swim. I love to feel the water surround me.

*

Have your best week ever.

Weight Loss – Hurray.

My weight is down 5 pounds since I left on vacation. I am so happy about this.

*

My pants were so loose I could take them off without unbuttoning them.

*

So I gave them to charity and got a new pair. Yay. When I get home next week, I have some tight clothes  I’ve been waiting to be able to wear.

*

My comments are off because I’m still traveling.

Have your best weekend ever.

FROM MUFFIN TOP TO SKINNY JEANS

Short Mama at Family Of Shorts started this meme and I want in. I want the results.

*

So what are you drinking? Are you sticking to your healthy eating plan and drinking a ton of water? Do you got to have your iced tea? Or are you still sipping on the can of sugar soda?

*

This is perfect for me. I have been succumbing to having a cold beer each day. I got myself some light ones at 100 calories, but I know it would be better to skip the beer and have the calories in good food.

*

I know I have been doing it because I haven’t kept cold tea in the fridge. I like my tea unsweetened also. My doctor recommended at least three cups of nettle tea a day. I usually drink them cold.

*

My favorite is cold weak green tea. I will drink water but would rather have tea.

*

Years ago I lost some weight and was working out. I got a hernia. I know, I pushed it with the weights and that caused it. A contributing factor was, when you lose weight, toxins that were stored in the body fat, are released and weaken your muscles. That is a good reason to drink lots, so you dilute the toxins and they pass out of you faster.

*

To your heath.

FROM MUFFIN TOP TO SKINNY JEANS

Short Mama at Family Of Shorts started this meme and I want in. I want the results.

Per Shortmama this week.

This weeks topic comes from my bloggy friend and fellow chick wanting less muffin MiMi at Living in France.

She suggested that we talk about and show how we would dress differently if we were not overweight.

I’m so glad that this week I don’t have to cop to how  compromised  my eating has been.

For many years I have envisioned myself in a wrap dress and I would have my small waist back. It would have an A-line skirt and be knee length. I’d wear flats because that’s me.

I like the one here except I would tie the bow smaller. I would really like to achieve this. Maybe I should buy myself a dress and keep trying it on till I can fit into it. I am going shopping tomorrow. I could put it on when I want to eat carbs.

I am being very challenged today. Please say a prayer for me and my family. Bless you all.

Success At Weight Loss, Finally

Mckaysavage
*

Have you always wanted an easy way to be slender?
*
I have.
*
On Spark People, when I read some people get back to normal weight when they start measuring portions, I knew that would be me.
*
It wasn’t.
*
Then they said some people who stop inhaling their food, get to normal weight.
*
Nope, didn’t do it.
*
Tracking calories does it for some.
*
No.
*
I really expected each of these steps to be it. I remember deciding very strongly to stay slender when I was young.
*
Nine days ago, I found what works for me.
*
The catch is, you have to have been infected with helicobacter pylori AND you need to have vague enough symptoms that you never sought treatment for it AND you have to have misinterpreted your stomach’s discomfort as hunger.
*
I also tried those hypnosis programs where you only eat when you are hungry. Hello. I always felt hungry.
*
Nine days ago, My husband started treatment for helicobacter pylori because of excessive bloating. The doctor suggested I take treatment also so we don’t reinfect each other. (Gross.)
*
Okay, fine, I was happy to do it. Almost immediately, I stopped feeling hungry soon after eating. I eat breakfast and start working and next thing I know it’s 11 AM or later.
*
I used to eat breakfast at 7 and look for something by 9 AM and 10 AM. If I went out, even for two hours, I took raw vegetables or nuts with me. If I got hungry and didn’t eat something, it would go into uncomfortable nausea. A little food relieved it. My acupuncturist told me in Eastern medicine, nausea that is relieved by food is a classic symptom of an ulcer. I don’t have an ulcer but I was likely on the way to one.
*

*
So without doing anything different, except the big difference of not wanting to eat all the time, my weight is down to 149.5 pounds. It was 155, nine days ago.
*
The doctor said we’ve had this for 15 or 20 years. Unchecked it is connected with ulcers.
*
Ten or more years ago I started a weight loss program to combat my weight gain that crept up slowly.
*
They recommended a 1200 cal diet. I could do it by will for about three days and then I would binge so they said to eat 1500 calories and lose more gradually.
*
I aimed for 1500 and often went to 1700 or 1800 or beyond.
*
I keep track of my calories and now I find it is very easy to eat 1400. Before this, at the end of the day I would be looking for something low calorie that I could “fill’ up on.
*
50% of those over 50 years of age have H. Pylori.
*
I told my doctor about my good fortune and he laughed and said he wished he lost weight on the treatment. The reality is, unless you have H. Pylori AND are misinterpreting discomfort as hunger, this won’t work for you. If this helps even one other person, I will be very happy. Heck I am ecstatic already.

I know, the proof is in the pudding. So far I love this past week’s pudding.

Addendum: One week later, my pudding crashed. This past week on 1500 calories a day, I have maintained my weight. No more lovely pounds dropping away. sigh. It was fun. Now I need to exercise more and eat less. XD
