"Who Am I?"

This is a question that I have been pondering today?
Along with "What is it that I want to accomplish now?" as far as my body goes.

I think I want to lose more weight but I also feel very content with where I am at too....I hate the land of indecision.

To be honest, it is really hard to get use to who I am now and I think that this is part of the reason in what I consider a stall in my journey.

I have been juggling the same 5 pounds since the beginning of July!
I got to my original goal back then and since then I have lost my gusto.

I am in search for it today!!!
Anyone now where it went??? lol

I am really having a great day...even if it doesn't sound like it but I am trying to figure out how to get the ambition to continue to lose the last 10 - 15 pounds. eats for today!!

This was breakfast, a bowl of strawberries and a bowl of Morning Hot Cereal with a splash of milk.

Morning Boost was a banana, almond breeze and peanut butter smoothie.

The next picture is lunch; Tomato soup, a whole wheat wrap with hummus and shredded vegetables. Terrible picture but it tasted yummy!

Mid-afternoon snack was was an apple, 3 wasa crackers and peanut butter.

Then supper was Spaghetti...lots of veggies in the sauce served on a bit of whole wheat pasta and a bit of spaghetti squash. I liked this...I was surprised that I did but mostly that the children did too. My hubby is not home yet but I mixed his squash in with the noodles...hoping he doesn't notice them right away. Sneaky me!!!


  1. I love spaghetti squash too.

    I think figuring out "who we are" as a normal weighted person is key to maintaining. I am sure the struggle to identify in as a non overweight person is what set me back last time I lost weight.

    It's tricky. There should be more out there on it. I think it's very similar to the cultural shock I have experienced in moving to a third world country and then moving back to Canada.

    I think I will post about the parallels.

  2. I can't help you with your stall...but will watch to see what you decide as I'm sure I'll feel the same way in the next year or so.

    Do you read Diane's blog over at Fit to the Finish? I believe she has a button on her site for contacting her and you could ask her. I know she has maintained for 13 years now and has a wealth of experience to learn from.

    Spaghetti squash is not so bad. I thought about having it soon too.

  3. Mmmmmm.... lovin' all your foodie pics!! So yummy!

    You know, I wonder sometimes when it comes to "the gusto", if maybe it's time to just keep on doing what you are doing, but change focus? Maybe God's doing something else? Or maybe it's good to just enjoy being healthy and just focus on living instead of dieting?

    I have gotten to this same place like 5 or 6 times in the past year or so in my journey from the 205 I was at... and just keeping on keeping on, and living life got me over the slump. I don't know.. just some thoughts. I am not saying getting sloppy or anything... just maybe this new area of "why do I sabotage myself" is something that God is wanting to uncover and heal, so that you can finish out this race?

    Much love.. Amy
