No more Hypothyroidism

This blog has become a personal journey.  I kept going up and down in my weight loss.  I like intuitive eating as a plan of weight loss but I am not losing weight fast enough. So I went back to square one, to the beginning.  At some point along the way  I picked up the diet rules again.  I started eating when it was time like early morning instead of when I was hungry. I my mind I went back to the thinking of I have got to get my metabolism going by eating breakfast.  When I started intuitive eating or thintuition I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and now a year later after taking  medication and eating when hungry I no longer take the medication prescribed for hypothyroidism.

Yum Yum Cinnabons

When I think of Cinnabon at the mall, I think of cheating on  a diet.  Cinnabon was always a no no in my mind because I have learned that certain foods make you fat.  With intuitive eating you learn to eat when hungry and stop when you are no longer hungry any more.  But when I walk up to the counter at the Cinnabon, there are always these very slender people buying not one but two cinnabons.  I asked how do you stay so slim eating those buns.  I get the,  "I don't know, I eat them all the time."  then I have to ask, are you eating it because your hunger and I get the most puzzling look but what people don't realize is, fat people eat because of any occasion and hunger has nothing to do with it eating. 

I love those Twist and they have a new way to serve the bun, in a cup with icing all over called Center of the roll.   It  is the best part of their Classic Roll - the ooey gooey middle.  they are bite sized pieces and topped with their signature cream cheese frosting.  they are available through January 15, 2011

Life changes

When I think of how much my life has changed in the last year, I get so teary eyed.  But I look in the mirror and there is not much change and then sadness comes over me.  Then I think it took 29 years to get to the size I am now and I've only been learning intuitive eating for a year.  I plan to figure it out because deep down I think it will really work.  I look at the biggest loser contestants and I learn a good deal about exercise but I really don't push myself.  I feel better than I have ever felt as a fat person but now I want to see the fruits of my labor. Tomorrow I will use the resources around me to start moving my body more.

Riding the bike is taking some of the pain out of my legs

Lately I have been having pains in my leg.  I started riding my stationary bike and the pain is slowly leaving.  I was so tired of limping so this is a good thing. 


 I have been drinking lots of water.  When I drink the water I usually get really full and cannot eat as much.
I have got to remember to continue to drink the water.

Treat failure as a learning experience

 I have not been drinking my water again.  For some reason I forget to drink it.  I expected to lose 5 lbs but instead, I am back up to 328.0 today.  I will try again to drink plenty of water and eat only when hungry and look at the calories again.  There was a time in the past that I would have beaten myself up for the rest of the day and start a new diet tomorrow.   This is a learning experience for me.  I wrote Evelyn Tribole from the book intuitive eating  as shown in the margins and asked how long does this take to become an intuitive eater and she did respond that if you have dieted for a long time it may take a while.  I still will not diet because I feel really good.  I am posting this because I know the weight will come off and want to reflect back if needed to my old post for this journey.

Florence Scovel  Shinn is a a writer from the past.  I found her book in my dads library of  books he no longer reads.   She provided quotes through out her book of affirmations.

Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.   

Giving opens the way for receiving.

Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.

No man is a success in business unless he loves his work.

The game of life is a game of boomerangs.  Our thoughts, deeds and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy.

There is a supply for  every demand.

You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success.  This is done by making an affirmation with "clicks"
