weigh in and a topic

SmileyCentral.com

Weigh in for today, is up a 1/2 a pound. I'm not stressing over it cause it's tom and bloating, and blah, blah.
This will be a short blog today as we are busy all day and then my mom is coming tonight cause she wants to go to my son's school play or 'hoe down' tomorrow where they dress up like comboys or something. Should be cute.
Topic for today: How do you be happy with the here and now? I mean 'how do you be happy with the body your have now, if you are overweight'? I have trouble with that some days. Like, when we went up by snoqualmie and stopped to visit a friend. My hubby friend was out of town but we were just stopping to get a wetsuit that my husband will wear in an upcoming tri he's doing. Anyway, this couple is from class in high school and actually I was friends for years with the hubby and dated him long, long ago and our sisters were best friends. Anyway, he does tri's or mostly marathons now and is friends with my hubby through working for my dad long ago fishing in Alaska. So, what I was getting to is....the wife is so damn skinny and pretty. All the time, never fat except maybe slightly after having a baby but not really. You know the type, the sophmore princess in high school, the popular girl, the cheerleader. She is really nice too. I used to take comfort that she was a bit of an air head (catty I know) but after getting to know her she really isn't. Anyway, how do you stop the thoughts when you see another person that looks good and stop thinking "I want to look like her"! At least in body weight. Probably won't happen as she is mighty thin but I get so impatient to get this weight off. Why can't I just start losing heaps! Arrggggghhh.
How do you handle thoughts like this if you have any similar? Here's to a good week to all of you and will blog in a few days as my mom will be here. No news on my school! I emailed the secretary of the program and she said she put them in the mail late on Monday so soon.....

I get frustrated with my weight on a daily basis, but am still happy enough cos where I am now is a darn sight better than where I was a few years ago! I don't think we will ever be 100% happy with our bodies, that's just how we are ! Try to look on the bright side, you ain't bedridden cos of your size! Everything works, and you have good health. Ahhh, another day awaits....

I agree with Chris... we will never be happy... I am a little happier than I used to be... but i still whinge and whine about my fat arse and my thunder thighs...
And sadly enough they will probably always be there...
There will always be something that we wont be happy about. We need to try and learn to love what we have got.. hard I know...

let me take a different angle on this. You meet an old High School acquaintance who is in top physical condition and still fits into her old clothes. You are fat. What do you think?

It happened to me at a local carnival/fair. I met this old friend that I knew from school. He is in relatively good shape. He is relatively successful at his career and has a few dollars. He said hello to me and was very condescending, like he was doing me a big favor by remembering me.

I know for a fact that his two brothers hate his guts and are not on speaking terms because they claim he cheated them out of money. I also am aware of his reputation for shady deals.

Can I be honest? When he was talking down to me, with his gold bracelets, big gold necklace, and gold watch and looking so smug; I honestly hoped that at that very moment the SWAT team would show up to arrest him. I guess I am a very petty guy.

I get frustrated when I see my skinny friends and the tiny clothes they can wear. I think what I do to feel better is pick at least one thing about my appearance that I like and try to remind myself that I'm attractive too! Angelfish24, if no one has told you this yet today, you are beautiful! By the way, I tagged you for a Thinking Blogger Award. Check out my last post for instructions if you want to participate.

Thanks for always making me think!

I wish I had some great words of wisdom, but I don't. I have been fairly faithful with my exercise routines, so some days, I feel great physically, but then I see myself in the mirror. What I see doesn't match how I feel. I guess instead of worrying how I look or how much I need to lose, I try to think about what I used to weigh and how far I have come.
