Hello world! Day One

Welcome to my Diary.

I am so glad you decided to join me as I chronicle my journey/battle with my body.  Will this be a depressing blog?  Probably not, I don’t do the blues well.   I love Red, and I may rant, and thankfully, in print I have time to check myself and my words before I click send (smiling). I may whine, and I will most assuredly Laugh at Myself at LOT.

Today’s post will be short and sweet, don’t count on that in the future.  I don’t happen to be particularly mad today.  My hubby has been really sweet and I am not “dieting” per se, so life is good.  =)

The real deal begins January 6, 2011, when I will mount  yet another attack on my growing obesity.  First, I have the yummy Sleep Study; then, I am faced with choosing between bad and worse plans.  Starving on itty-bitty amounts of food or starving on liquid food.  I don’t know about you, but neither option sounds exciting to me.

Peace and Blessings,

  2. I hope and pray you success and will join you as time allows. It is soul bearing to do it in a blog. I have struggled with the weight lose issue most of my life. I don’t have any medical reasons just poor eating habits and on and off motivation to exercise. You can succeed Obie one kanobie. God bless and good luck.

    • Thanks DeeDee. I appreciate your visiting my blog and taking the time to comment. I had no idea how encouraging this would be for me. You all are the best. Blessings, join when you can. Merry Christmas.

  3. I am very new at Blogging. Some of you have subscribed–as it turns out just to this particular page. I in my ignorance didn’t realize that I needed to give you a link to subscribe to the blog. So if you do want updated posts to the blog as a whole and NOT just to this thread, please click on the sign up tab on the left of the blog. Thanks again for your interest.

  4. Shonnie,
    I’m so proud of you. It takes alot of work to lose weight & keep it off. You’ll have steps that hesitate & go backwards but you’ll soon have more that go forward. Don’t give up.

  5. Shonnie, I don’t really know you very well. I have admired you ever since my first day in reformer. The things you do are amazing to me. To participate with my husband in a competition would be very far fetched to say the least. You trained for it, completed it and on top of all of it enjoyed it. I support you in this journey and will have my eyes and ears open to continue to learn more from you. Push Forward!

  6. You go, Shonnie! I am looking to change the “inside” of me. I’ve struggled with that for a long time as you have struggled for a long time. I agree with your Mikey – with patience and perseverance we will succeed. First thing I’ve got to learn is the patience part. I support you fully in your journey.

  7. I will be praying for you. Please pray for me as I am determined to be a better, healthier me in 2011. As many others have said, I need to lose weight too….about 100 as well–and so maybe we can encourage each other. I love you girl!

  8. Girl – I am here with you !! I will join you on this journey….I would love to support each other as we better ourselves !! I want to loose about 50-60 lbs & I know we CAN do this !! Stay strong and know you are supported and loved by many !!

  9. It is a very wise decision to start this after all the holiday festivities are over. That would be a major bummer for me. You are beautiful… truly beautiful, the way you are. But I do understand.

  10. Shonnie, I honored to be on this journey with you. I agree with everyone that has said you are beautiful regardless of your weight, but your determination and drive to succeed are pretty awesome as well. You can count on me to cheer you on and hopefully will be motivated to reach a few goals myself.

  11. Hi Shonnie:

    Have a friend who does wonderfully on the supervised liquid diet but then slides back on regular food…I would suggest the bits of food. I too need to retrain myself to eat less….I anxiety eat and the more you get involved in life…the more anxiety…I like Dr. Oz if I could only FOLLOW his advise. I have vowed not to buy another piece of clothing until I loose at least 10 lbs……Please share your story and I will share mine.
    Best of luck…I am sure you will succeed in 2011…HUGS Nancy

    • Thanks Nancy–I am going to be working with a Doctor that specializes in this. He is interested in me because of all my documented efforts that have gone no where. I already eat VERY small portions — but this itty-bitty amount is beyond small. It is not just portion control it is designed to send your body into shock. Honestly it scares me.

  12. I will do what I can to help you. I also need to lose a few pounds myself so maybe we all can work together and see where it goes. Love you cuz

  13. Well, maybe together we can give each other some helpful hints to losing weight, I too need to lose some. Just remember that it tooks years to put it on so it’s going to be a slow process. I have lost inches from doing away from Saccharine, aspargum, high Fructose corn syrup and any kind of man-made sugars. I don’t ingest idoized salt except sea salt, no soy sauce (gives you bad headaches too). I don’t aeat anything prepackaged or pre made. I did away with store bought bread and only go to the nearest bakery for my bread- I get the day old bread which is half the price and it freezes well. I cut down my red meat intake too to 6 oz a week. Thus far I have lost about 5-6 inches off my waist. I don’t believe in dieting (the word consist of die and I am not ready to die). Once a month I treat myself a bakery dessert- but one that is about six bites. I don’t exercise b/c I had a bad skiing accident of which my knee didn’t heal correctly, so it makes it extremely painful to do much walking or exercising. I cook with garlic to keep my cholesterol down and I have good LDL levels. when I get really hungry I eat small bites of cheese a& saltines. w/ sea or Kosher salt . That usually helps with the craving for salt.

    I know that was alot but this should help some.

  14. I think what ur doing is great. Not
    only to help u figure out things, but
    also help encourage others with thier
    struggles! I have been on this battle
    for a while now myself, I have lost
    47lbs and now I am stuck! I watch
    what I eat, tried diff excercises, &
    it seems like I just can’t go any
    further! I hope that I can learn a
    few things from u & help u as well!
    Here’s to a new journey! Good luck,
    many blessings, & a huge success!
    Love, Jamie

  15. I am so happy to see someone have the courage and the drive to do something about themselves and the way they look or feel. No matter what your size in life….you will always be filled with beauty. you are one of the most beautiful people I have ever known and you will always be because of what is inside of you.

    if anyone can do this….I know that YOU CAN….you have the drive and the will and the faith and everything else it takes. i am glad to be a part of this and I hope that it will encourage my lazy butt to do something as well.

    I can’t wait for this journey of yours and I have faith in you….You Will Succeed.

    Lead on us and help encourage the rest of us……………Good Luck Cuz!!!

  16. It has been quite a journey for you. One that, with patience and perseverance, you will win. I had to be the first to post. I am proud of you baby!
