been alright!

since my last post I have turned myself around...been doing pretty good on my eating and have been out there exercising alot more....my woggin (jog/walk) has been progressing really nicely....

I have mixed emotions over my WI at WW tomorrow...I'm ready to face the music...and actually I'm pretty darn proud of myself of regaining some control over my eating etc...my job is very stressful right now- I'm about to open a 12.8million dollar community centre and arena, balance a 3million dollar operating budget for some other facilities, make board presentations, hire staff, attend evening meetings, get scrutinized by the community/user groups etc, work 50hrs a week... i'm under alot of pressure- however I'm still finding time to go for a "wog" with the dog and eat pretty well... not sure what the scale will say but hey--- life happens :)

I SAW THAT SHOW TONIGHT for the first time ever. Craziness! While I was watchign it though I didn't feel like I wanted to snack. Wow, those trainers make their peopel feel GUILTY. Is that how maybe we should live, without a glass of wine, or chocolate??? I odn't know if I could...
And as for WI's.. relaly honey, they're simply a number. You feel good, you must look good, and you're being smart. Chin up! You're an inspiration to me!

Woggin. I LOVE it. Sooooo funny. And sooooo what I do.

Good for you for getting back on track, especially under all that stress.

You do have a lot on your plate! And you know what, the fitter and thinner you are, the better equipped you will be to deal with it all! Good job on regaining control! I am so proud of you!

Somtimes it's those weeks when we "face the music" that we need the most. I need to see a bad day on the scale after a bad week, or I won't ever learn the consequences!

Fat Prison- seen on a couple different websites-

I want to tell you about a very unusual sort of prison. It's called Fat Prison. Why is it so unusual? Because it's completely voluntary.
No one sends us to Fat Prison, we send ourselves!

What's it like to be a fat prisoner? The rules are very strict. To begin with, each prisoner must wear regulation uniform. This consists of a baggy skirt or elasticated pants. Most prisoners pretend they don't mind walking around in this shapeless uniform, but secretly they hate it. They'd much rather walk down the street in a slim pair of jeans.
Exercise is strictly controlled Swimming or playing with children is forbidden. And no prisoner may walk more than a few yards at a time. The penalties for breaking this rule include sweating, shortness of breath, soreness and fatigue. After a few years without any sort of proper exercise, prisoners become so soft that the very idea of movement terrifies them. If you don't believe me, go up to a fat prisoner and suggest a nice long walk in the fresh air!
Everyday life The main feature of everyday life inside Fat Prison is tiredness. Prisoners carry lots of extra weight around on their bodies, so not surprisingly they suffer from chronic fatigue. Result? After doing their daily chores, most of them slump down exhausted in front of the TV.
Even when they allow themselves a night out, many prisoners find it difficult to enjoy themselves. They feel awkward about their shape so instead of mixing with other people they tend to sit in the corner with other fat prisoners.
Prison Mentality After many years of locking themselves away inside their Fat Prison, many prisoners develop a prison mentality. They lose confidence in themselves and their ability to "go straight". They look at slim people and think: "I'm never going to be like them!" They think they are doomed to stay in Fat Prison, forever. Result? They let themselves go completely.
Bad for Health Fat Prison is very bad for prisoners health. Don't forget, the greater our weight, the greater the strain on our joints and spine. And the fatter we grow, the harder our heart has to work to keep us going. No wonder so many fat prisoners get ill!
Depressing Fat Prison is a depressing experience, not only for the prisoners but also for their families. In fact, the children of fat prisoners often grow up to become prisoners themselves. It's a vicious cycle.
Question So why do so many people end up in Fat Prison? And even more important, why don't they leave once they discover how awful it is?
Answer Because they prefer to eat cookies, chocolate, potato chips, popcorn, doughnuts, fatty meat and creamy desserts. They know that this stuff makes them fat but they don't care. They'd rather go to prison than give up their regular mouthful of fat. *Some may have other reasons
Are you a fat prisoner? Have you locked yourself up in your own private Fat Prison? If so, here's some advice. Don't waste another day of your life in jail. Get out now!
All you have to do is stop eating junk and start eating properly and you can walk free tomorrow.
It may take a few months before your weight returns to normal, but your tiredness will lift immediately and within a week you'll feel ten times better. So what are you waiting for?Get out of your Fat Prison today and start really living!
