feelin good--hyc update

My WI isn't untill wednesdays- but since I have the day off I thought I would actually 'checkin' I joined the HYC in the beginning- i havn't been the best at keeping up with the blogs, but always have it in the back of my mind....

I had a re-inforcement this weekend about how I can NEVER stop going to WW- or thinking about what i eat etc... I crossed paths during a visit to my old town, with a few people that used to go to WW when I lived there all 3 of them stopped going to meetings and all 3 have gained.... I really believe in the process, and have written off wednesday nigths as MY time for me going to meetings!!! I have also started working 1 meeting a month at the scales to help, cuz there isn't enough lifetimers to cover it..

in anycase- I'm feeling great about my body, my progress and my future- I'm packing for my upcomgin cruise in 16 days- from Ft Lauderdale and I'll be gone for 19.... I have this plan in my head that I'm going to use this down time from work and hubby to WORK OUT a lot while on the ship...just like biggest loser- when they can work out ALLLLLLL day :) ??? hubby and I are going to the dominican republic for new years- so perhaps then if I can reach my goal of 65 lost, I'll let myself PARTY :) ???
like I said i'm having a debate...we'll see....
hope all is well with you !!!

*nods* I keep hearing that. Must go to meetings. Forever and ever.

I don't think I'll mind too much. I like the people at my meetings.

I kinda figuered that out too. Oh well, I guess this is what they mean as "A Live Change" I just wish it was easier on the pocketbook. Have a great time on you cruise (I am so jealous)

You're absolutely right. There is no END to this, and I kinda don't want there to be. I feel strong when I go to the meetings, like I"m not alone, and I"m not failing or succeeding but that I just am, and this is the way it is. Some are born without legs, eyes, mental cognition - I was born without the 'stop eating' mechanism. I'd pick my deficiency over mostly anything else, because I can handle it. WE all can!

Enjoy your cruise! Sounds like it will be wonderful.

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!
