Wishing For It Doesn't Mean Success!

Sensible Portions Apple Cinnamon Straws... AMAZING!

My friend Mariss is always along for the weight loss ride with me, but there are times I honestly think she just brings me down. Although she always says she is in it I know she isn’t! You know that friend that likes to be part of things until she has to actually work at doing them?

There are times I just want to tell her to give it up, or even give it up until she is actually ready to make the commitment it takes to lose weight. You can’t just wish for weight loss and expect it to happen you have to actually work for it. Sadly, I don’t think she has any desire to do anything except be part of the group.

I know from personal experience that losing weight is hard and you are going to mess up and you are going to feel bad about something’s you have done, but you have to pick yourself up, dust off those yoga pants and get back with it. We all fail sometimes…

You didn’t gain this weight overnight, and all of that eating really was harder work than you think it was, you were just too busy enjoying the hard work. LOL

I can’t stress enough all the hell you are putting yourself through if you are not ready to make the commitment. You are miserable and you are probably making everyone else miserable around you. Until you are ready to commit stop frustrating yourself.

You have to want this, and if you don’t truly want it then wait until you do. Find what drives you and work with that. This isn’t for everyone at every moment. You will know when the time is right for you. Something will click. You hear about this clicking all the time! It really is something that just happens and you feel it and you know you are ready.

I don’t want to say give up because I don’t mean that, but decide what you want then act on it. You know how they say think before you speak… think before you try to lose weight because if you are not ready you will never be successful.

Some Days You Just Have to Take a Bow!

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Thursday, July 17, 2014 Links to this post

Sweaty ... Stinky... Feeling Amazing!
It’s very rare that I am ever proud of myself but today I feel really proud. This may sound like a “who cares moment” for some but for me tonight was a big deal.

I was really craving a burger and fries which I have set as “off limits” most of the time. Although I was craving this delectable beast I knew by indulging I was going to be walking a fine line with my points. If I am eating out I always budget my day around such an event. Like a salad for lunch verses a sandwich and stuff like that.

At the last minute tonight we decided to do burgers and fries. I made a promise to myself that if I was going to doing this I was going to have to pay for it with a killer workout, and I did! I ordered a junior burger and small fries which still left me 6 points for the remainder of the night. The burger was OK but not as good as what I had been dreaming about!

I knew I made the promise to myself so at 9pm my killer workout started. I pushed it harder than I have pushed it in years and it felt amazing. I was pushing it so hard I could smell the burger sweating out of me ugh! Yes it was gross! I couldn’t wait to shower and get that smell off of me.

I am proud because I ate that meal and burnt off that many calories and more in my workout! I killed it and it felt amazing. I feel amazing that I did it.

So yes, I am taking a bow!

Multi-Vitamins... Triggering Hunger?

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Wednesday, July 16, 2014 Links to this post

I believe my multi-vitamin is causing me to be hungry all the time! I am talking ravenous hungry! I wanted to believe it was all in my head but I don’t think that’s the case…

I did an experiment to see if this could be possible. For a few days I took the multi-vitamin and I was starving all night I mean starving to the point of crazy! Then I went without taking the multivitamin for a few days and had no hungry issues. I was actually good and satisfied except when it would be a normal meal time.

I think I am going to start taking my vitamins before bed to see if that will make a difference and make me feel better. I don’t like that out of control feeling and to be honest with you it’s not worth taking the vitamin if that’s going to happen. 

Crazy hungry person and Weight Watchers do not mix! I am already a natural born beinge eater I don’t need something else to add to my plate so to speak!

Food or Water? Defining Freedom...

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Sunday, July 13, 2014 Links to this post

I just had this awesome feeling come over me… I know it’s a long time in the making but, I had the coolest thought come to mind… at this time next year I will be comfortable enough in a swimsuit to actually go swimming.

I love to swim … I mean I LOVE to swim, but fat is fat and I am too fat to be in a swimsuit! I don’t think I miss anything more (other than a lost relative) than swimming. I have loved it since I did it the first time and for me no swimming is like a loss of a friend or a loss of my other half. Water comes naturally to me and not swimming for years hurts me deeply!

I love the thrill of water, going to water parks, scuba diving, snorkeling, and a nice lazy river rider. I mean I love everything about water sports, water craft, and just water in general…

I can’t wait for the day when I feel the chains removed from my body, when water is freedom again, and water is happiness. So I guess it comes down to one thing… what’s more important… food or freedom?

Looking Back... Makes Me Sad...

Posted by Kody at Skinny Sized at Sunday, July 06, 2014 Links to this post

Today I was looking back on my MyFitnessPal Weigh in History and I must admit it made me really sad to look at it. Week after week, month after, here I am with the same weight in’s bouncing back and forth. It’s embarrassing.

For years now, most of my life actually, I have been dealing with this weight loss/gain drama in my life and I hate it. When you grow up in a big family where almost everyone is big it’s easy to allow yourself to spin out of control and I did to the fullest.

I have been out of control since I was 10 years old. Talk about taking a toll on my body. The lowest weigth I have seen in years is 281.2 and that was almost 2 years ago!

When I met my husband I was 250 then over the last 9 plus years I have ballooned up to 310 pounds (my highest) and now I am in the process of working my way down….

I don’t want it anymore…. Someone else can have it!
