just the same spelling

Hi all,
And congratulations crumpskyhawk. You hould be very proud of your self.
I have to admit though that the reason I clicked on to this thread was because I figured the word 'loss' really pertained to me. I was aiming towards losing 24 pounds by the time I go away on my trip next week, I have been at it for about 2 months, and I lost. Mind you I did lose some weight but not 24lbs, but rather 10 lbs. I know I should think of this in a more positive manner and say " hey, if I didn't didn't try to lose the 24 I wouldn't have lost the 10".
I may be down but I'm not beaten. When I return from my trip I will continue on my weight loss plan. I don't plan on giving up. I know I won't be down in Mexico and look great and firm in my bathing suit, but again I will look at the possitive. At least I will be in Mexico .
Well ciao for now and I'll talk to you soon,
Again congrats,
Irene

Pinkie Winky Thats the spirit, Irene!

I just lost 9 lbs ...in a week. No, no drugs, no crazy diets... but I did.
The general idea is to refuse to quit. no matter how wrong was your sin - lol- and not to refuse a thing you're craving for, just reduce the portion. Maybe a little meditation will help. I dont meditate, not the way it goes, but I do tend to weigh my feelings and to analyse my toughts, so I can understand myself.
I dont want you to have the wrong impression about me : I'm not zen at all, I'm a bit anxious most of the times , but when I get to the point when I know I want something to really happen, than I make the effort. It took me almost a year to be ready for this step. And as I need to lose a lot more, I know I have a looooong road to run, but I know I'll do it!
Keep on going!
{{{hugs}}}
Fatima

Great for you Fatima,
Well it's been more than one week , a lot more LOL but I have lost 15lbs to this point. I haven't been dieting per say but instead not eating junk food (a lot LOL) and watching the portions I eat at meal times.
I am still not the way I want to look in a bathing suit and even though I say "you can't even tell I lost ANY weight" my husband tells me I have. That's a good feeling in itself. I have also noticed that just because I know I am on my way to loseing more weight and looking the way I want to my attitude has improved. And because my attitude has improved I think I project a verry positive look.
Any way ,
ciao for now,
Irene

Thanks for the words of encouragement.
I know I can do this, it just gets a little harder with the older I get, and the busier the family gets. I will prevail. I will not lose this battle just the bulge(lol)
