So what do you think?

Of my new page. I wanted something different and to be honest, I'm sort of tired of the scrapbook look (for today) watch me see someone with a cute page and go hunting for something similar. I have some posts that I haven't published yet, you know the kind you start typing and next thing you know you have to leave and when you come back its no longer relevant, especially for those deep feeling ones. So I will review them soon and maybe post them.

I wanna thank all of you who have welcomed me back and for your support re my alcoholism, its so appreciated.

So, that's it for now, I'm going to bed!

Tomorrow I will post about my exercise successes (worked out 3x this week) and what my goals for 2009 are.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm baaaack!!!

Hey everyone,

Sorry for my absence, life's kept me busy and to be quite honest I felt that I didn't have anything to share but struggles. You see I haven't been following any plan whatsoever so I couldn't go around writing about progress since I wasn't doing anything to see any and I didn't want to write about my failings, lord knows my ego tells me about them enough everyday. Got to quiet that ego down, so what did I do, well today I actually did something good for myself!! Wohoo! I did a DVD workout called Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds Get Started, I did the whole mile so kudos to me for doing that, I'm a large girl as you all know so that makes me feel good. I used to do her 3 mile walk almost every day and on occasion her 4 mile. I used to be a size 3, I used to this and I used to that. None of that matters anymore now does it.

Another thing I need to air out here because its part of who I am is I'm a clean and sober alcoholic of over 9 years sobriety so its not part of this blog so much as its part of me. I go to AA meetings and I follow the same 12 steps that Overeaters Anonymous follows. Now that's out of the way. I couldn't for the life of me figure out why I wanted to keep my sobriety such a secret, first of all the blog is anonymous and second of all its who I am, take it or leave it. There's a lot of us morbidly overweight women who are recovering alcoholics and have traded one addiction for the other. My overeating is a testament that I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing and that's handing my will to God every day. So I hope you stick around and watch me learn to live again while incorporating healthy eating habits, exercise and God all in my new plan.

So I guess the blog will change in certain directions only because I have to be true to me. Basically I just want to share my struggles and successes with weight loss while being true to the recovering alcoholic that I am.

That's it for now!

Thanks for visiting!

I write this at 4:00 am due to a terrible night of sleep with tummy problems and a stuffed nose. My system is all messed up and I think its effecting me emotionally as well. But that's for another time, onto today's topic.

So we took the granddaughter out for Halloween and allow me to tell you that I am embarrassed on so many levels. Why I decided that it was perfectly alright to go out without dying my roots (they were really bad) but I put my hair in a pulled back pony and had no makeup on. Hubby took pics, I'm not sure if it was to shock me or if his intentions were genuine but my butt was huge, I looked worse I swear then my pics posted here on the site. I am fat, no I am morbidly obese. I look terrible but that's nothing, I could barely walk, my lower back hurt, my breathing was horrific and to top off the evening I celebrated by eating half a bag of white powdered donuts (hubby bought them for me).

Why am I still doing this to myself, I panic because of my health and if it weren't for my faith in my Higher Power I would probably worry even more. Has it even occurred to me to pray to God for help on this matter, no it hasn't I should right now.

God, I offer myself to You--to build with me and to do with me as You will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Your Power, Your Love, and Your Way of Life. May I do Your will always!

This prayer has so much power if its used and if I pray to God to have me live his will, but I realize that I am not doing my 3rd step prayer and doing God's will, I'm doing Sassle's will.

The photos taken were one thing but I have to say I felt horrible, I couldn't wait until we could go back into the car and go home every step we took was hell on my back and lungs and my granddaughter wanted me to go with her up the stairs which I did but I didn't want to, that's no fun for me nor for her.

Why am I still doing this to myself?

Some Positive Changes

I write because I cannot sleep, I am one of those people that when I'm tired I must go to sleep right away, no lallygagging, no talking, nothing, I must get to sleep if not my brain starts working, the Ego starts talking and all hell breaks loose. I'm not only awake but I'm either suffering a panic attack about my health or I'm thinking about work, hubby, the cats, the horses (do you think they're cold) it's just not good.

I was rather pleased to see some people read the Exsay post and leave behind a comment or two, I didn't know what to expect, I thought perhaps I put people off, maybe I did but some agree it's an important topic, we as obese or formally obese women have different issues then the average weight woman (not skinny, average weight).

Now on to the reason I started writing this post, I have lost 0 pounds as of today, I have not gained which is rather good and the positive changes I have started to make which I'm sure will show up on the scale in due time are minor but positive. I stopped eating anything with sugar after 6:00pm, that change alone has helped me immensely with the anxiety/panic attacks.

Sugar seems to inspire me to not only climb the walls but fuels the Ego into thinking all sorts of things concerning my health. When I eat high doses of sugar which can consist of ice cream sundae with the works I swear to you I can almost feel it surge through my blood. I don't like that feeling, it reminds me of when I had my gallbladder surgery years ago and they gave me morphine for the pain, I felt it go through my blood and that's how sugar is starting to feel for me.

I cut my nighttime snacking into half, which means after dinner I don't snack half the time and when I do, it might be a bowl of Cheerios or a P/B & J sandwich which again is so much better then what I used to do. Hubby and I used to make pancakes or french toast with tons of butter and syrup.

Which reminds me there is no more butter in my home, after my mother-in-law had a heart attack and she confessed that she ate tons of butter on everything we decided to cut it right out, we now use Promise® Buttery Spread now it doesn't taste the same as butter but the damage butter does is no longer worth it for me. Sometimes I don't use any spread, hubby has been known to put mayo/salad dressing on bread instead of butter but I don't know how good that is.

So, even though I'm not on a diet right now (such a dirty word diet is) I'm feeling good, I'm feeling as though I'm headed in the right direction. If I could just stop my occasional panic attacks about my health I think all will be well in the end. I'm feeling closer to actually wanting it for myself, not for hubby but for me. The New Year promises lots of travel for me, visiting my parents for a month and having my in-laws here for a month so I want to feel good and confident when these two visits occur.

That's it for now, thanks for stopping by!

Sassle Smarticus!

Friday, October 10, 2008


Yeah good ole Pig Latin. I've got a question to ask all big girls and former big girls, it's about sex. Now I'm keeping in mind that this question is private in nature so I will post poll where you can answer anonymously (or you can be anonymous within the comments section).

What position do you and your spouse use for sexual relations? I ask because I'm a large girl and find that the missionary position is too difficult for me, I'm not in shape nor as bendy as I would like to be, my left inner thigh hurts so you get the point it's hard and embarrassing.

I understand that this is a private question but I don't think these things are discussed much, not for large or morbidly large women that is. Do you enjoy it like you used to when you were smaller, is your size holding you back? Are you taking initiative or is your better half? Are you even having sexual relations anymore?

I ask all these questions because it's important for me to know that I Sassle am not alone in my sexual insecurities.

Now if nobody answers these questions that's ok, I totally understand.

I'm still here!

After spending a lovely weekend with family it's surprising that I feel so down. My stepdaughter came over with the grandchildren and we had a grand old time (pardon the pun). I had McDonald's probably twice along with other terrible foods. My cookie dough craving came out of nowhere since I've never had cookie dough in my entire life. So I had to have a cookie dough blizzard from DQ's. I had their delicious chicken in a basket and well no need to go into ugly details I ate like it was my last meal. If I keep it up it just might be.

Aunt Flo arrived and she's heavier then she's been in years, hubby is obsessed with an online game that he plays all hours into the night and well I procrastinate whenever I can about life's important decisions. All this and me binging is making me very sad. I didn't want this blog to be a sad blog, I wanted it to be pro-active but the reality is this is how I feel right now.

I looked out the window today and saw my horses and thought why on earth am I inside the house, why am I sitting on the computer when its a beautiful sunny fall day outside? How can I motivate myself to be pro-active about my health? Why am I sabotaging myself like this? I'm sure I"ll be fine in a few days, once in awhile I get the blues, I'm sure a nice hot shower in clean bed sheets with a good book might do the trick.

I have a deadline tomorrow, I can't screw it up, especially since the visit from my family this past weekend put me way behind in my work so I'm also adding stress to my yukky feelings of self worth but I can do it, I have to do it, I should be doing it now.

Enough of the yukky post, I just wanted you all to know that I'm still around, not quitting, not giving up and I'm still blogging...

All's quiet!

I'm exhausted tonight, we had a late dinner and I'm guessing it's just sitting there in my gut waiting for me to go lay down and cause me grief like heartburn or nightmares. Oh well, I'm still up trying to digest my dinner and then I will promptly go to bed because I'm exhausted (did I say that already).

I seriously got inspired today by seeing a blog, her before and after pics were fantastic and it gave me so much hope that all is possible. The weird part is I don't know how I found her, I clicked on someone else's profile and I found her blog, hmm weird or maybe just maybe I was meant to see that blog today to be inspired. Maybe my Higher Power fixed it so that I would see that blog, I don't know what's important is that I did and its inspired me immensely.

I don't have much to say right now, I'm guessing the fact that I'm tired has something to do with it but I have some ideas on the back burner that I'll start writing about tomorrow.

Satisfied Woman Here!

Well all in all I would call today a success on so many levels. I'm getting quite a few visitors to this site reading my blog and that's a very good thing. I've changed for the umpteenth time my layout and title (still not satisfied). Do you know what I'm really looking for? Illustrations like this I absolutely love her work! I love the style of the illustrations and one day I'll get enough money together and have Leelou design my blog for me, that's a promise I'm making to myself.

Food wise I'd say is somewhat of a success. I had cereal for breaky, an ice cream sandwich as a snack, I had a cheese sandwich and frozen dinner for lunch and then spaghetti and meat sauce for dinner. Now why do I call this a success because I never felt the urge to binge, except that time when I had to throw out some leftover mac and cheese w/wieners I so wanted to just gobble it all down but I didn't. I threw everything out (but the 3 pieces of wiener). I consider all this a small but definite success, even though its going over my allotted calories of 1500-1800 per day.

I did lots around the house, it's looking organized and clean. I still have stuff to do but I'm feeling OK with everything right now. It's like even though I went over the amount of food I was allowed for the day, I'm not letting it control my mood, I ate and moved on! Speaking of moving on, I've got to start exercising, at the very least I have to go for a walk every day. I live on a beautiful farm so I have no excuses I can walk all day long if I want. I should start small since I'm so out of shape, perhaps go see the horses on the hour (they'll appreciate it and I get a walk in) or walk around the perimeters of the house every hour, something that will make me move!

So I'll leave it at that for now, thanks for dropping by!


Monday, September 22, 2008

Ok, so I don't take to suggestions too well.

I was going to write about something else; my day, how it went, how I felt, but something just came up so I'll share then I have a question for you.

What's on my mind now is me, the hubby and food. I feel as though he watches everything I eat and it makes me feel uncomfortable. Maybe I'm wrong but I'll give you the scenario. Hubby and I eat late, we always have no problem there I guess. Today I took out some sausage patties and some potatoes to eat for dinner. But we had no bread (or shall I say hubby needed cigarettes). So off we went to our local grocer and he saw these sausages links, something called old fashioned sausages. I wasn't really in the mood because I want to be satisfied and these didn't look very satisfying to me, but we ended up buying the sausage links anyway. Hubby announces at the cash that all we'll eat are 3 each, but I don't know what I'll eat yet and I don't like someone else telling me what I can and should eat. So it puts me in a bad mood because if I dare have four I look like a pig. I announce I want 4 (hey I'm a daredevil that way) and hubby looks at me with a look I can't describe cuz I can't read his mind. We go home and are all playful and he says "are you sure you want four?", I said "yes I'm sure." but there's something that is either eating at me about this or him I can't put my finger on it. So I go straight into defensive mode and start telling him how I feel he decides what I should and shouldn't eat and watches me ad nauseum, he replies "I can't do this anymore, you share your feelings with me but I can't say anything. I don't want to know about it anymore then, I can go without the fighting". So I just walked away and said fine to him and that I don't want anything to eat.

Is it just me? Is it PMS? Am I the only one who this happens to? I feel so defensive when it comes to eating in front of him sometimes. I don't like someone telling me what I should or shouldn't eat. He said, we talk about moderation but you want four. So what mister, and it makes me feel like I'm being judged and most importantly by him. I'm probably wrong.

Please tell me if I'm the only one who feels this way, defensive about her eating habits especially with a spouse/boyfriend/mom etc...

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for dropping by!

Chairs and Toilets who'd a thought!

Look at this chair, just take a look, it seems like your average lawn chair right? Look you even have a place to put your water or pop. It looks like a fantastic and practical chair all around except when you're morbidly obese, it's a very scary thing.

I decided to go to the party with my husband, I found a ride there so I didn't have to drive (I don't like to drive, I really need to create a blog just based on all my fears). So my first challenge was not the chair, no it was a buffet of good food. I took salad but you know the kind of salad they served; potato, macaroni, green been and so much more fatty foods. But I ate them slowly (whilst fighting wasps for my food at the same time) and then came the desert. I have yet to turn down a desert in my life I'm not ready just yet. So I asked hubby to get me some desert knowing full well he'd be moderate about choosing sweets for me whereas I would be a glutton. He brings me this rice krispies square with a high ratio of sugar and a brownie. I don't like rice krispy treats but I being a sugar addict started with that one. It was good, once I finished I went for the brownie but I felt that little sugar rush, you know what I mean, where the sugar starts searing through your blood and you feel like you could hit a physical peak. So I did the one thing I've never done before, I gave my husband my brownie and said no more desert for me, I remembered too well the cheeseburger caramel pie fiasco and I don't ever want to feel like that again.

Now back to the ever practical lawn chair, poor hubby is offering me a seat beside him, but I'm petrified of sitting on it because what if I break it, what if I can't fit inside the chair, what if it rips. So I avoid sitting for hours, my feet were sore and I could barely stand it, then I saw a woman who looked to be my size (maybe bigger, maybe smaller, my perception is really off where size is concerned) and she sat in a chair just like that. I thought hmm, she didn't break it, it handled her weight, so I'll give it a shot, so I proceeded to sit in the chair and did not miraculously break it, BUT! I had to get out of the chair now didn't I. The handles were of soft material so that was not a pretty sight and I truly believe the both times that I sat down on those chairs when I got up I heard a ripping sound but I pretended I didn't hear it.

There were so many uncomfortable moments for me at this party, so many normal reasons to want to be thin. I'll finish with this, I had to go to the bathroom, it was so small (or I was so big) I had to sit on the toilet on an angle and well it wasn't a pretty site. I felt like a giant on a kiddies toilet. I would need one of those Great John Toilets for plus sized people.

All I'm saying is that after yesterday's party I saw so many more reasons to be thin, reasons that are important for normal function in the world like sitting and going to the bathroom. I rode with hubby on his Harley and almost pulled a muscle trying to get on the bike. It's not fun and its quite humbling and humiliating all at the same time.

Oh, before I forget as soon as I arrived at the party, this woman said to me "God you're beautiful", I was so shocked I said "pardon me?" and she said "You are absolutely beautiful". I thanked her and walked away, I wouldn't have minded continuing the conversation on my beauty but didn't find it really appropriate. :-D

I'm off to revise my list on the reasons to be thin and thanks for dropping by.


"Knock-Knock"! Who's There? "The Sugar Monster!!"

Ok, I decided to write about it instead of doing it (so far that is). Hubby and I were invited to an event today and yesterday we had decided we didn't want to go, we were going to chill at home. Then this morning hubby woke up and changed his mind, he wants to go and ride his Harley to the party. I have ridden on the Harley at this weight last year but with so many deers running in front of bikes and cars I've opted to let the fear of deer and my weight keep me from going to the party. Now that's not the current issue, though it obviously is a huge one, me letting fear run my life, I'm aware that its not right but lets get to issue at hand.

The evil Sugar Monster was knocking on my door, telling me that whilst the hubby was out at said party eating hot dogs, burgers, brats etc. why don't I drive to get me some sugar i.e. Little Debbies, any cake will do, hot dogs or whatever tickles my tongue fancy. I know that sugar causes me some serious anxiety issues so I'm not totally committed to listening to the little monster (I could safely call him a big monster) but I'm tempted, as tempted as one can be to bite into something fatty and sugary.

But! There's a voice another voice that is that's talking to me and telling me to remember what I felt like the other night, when I was suffering anxiety attacks, fearing I'd have a heart attack, fearing I'd die alone (since hubby will be gone). Then there's another voice saying "but you're only starting on Monday, this might be your last hurah" last hurah alright it might just kill me.

I got received a comment from Mizfit and in that comment
she says heres to a good weekend and an amazing start of a new lifestyle monday (or today? maybe??)
That comment had me thinking, today? maybe?? hmm do I need to wait for monday to start my new lifestyle. The power of positive suggestion is amazing, its the reason I haven't hopped into the car and started on my sugar monster plan, that one comment made me think, it stopped me in my tracks but for how long? I don't know but I'll take for now. I'll keep y'all posted as to my progress.

I'll never do that again!

Last night was date night, hubby and I went out to dinner and I justified to myself that I wasn't starting my diet before Monday September 22nd so I could eat what I wanted. As I was presented with the menu the waitress happened to mention their desert special which was order one pie and get the next one free. Yay for desert!

I ordered this burger which had what looked like breaded onions on top of it, loads of cheese, a delicious sauce and well lets just say it was fully dressed and huge so in order to fit it in my mouth I had to take out the lettuce oh and I was presented with the side choice of fries, salad or soup. I chose fries (no wonder I'm obese). After feeling full a bit more then half way through the burger I then decided to have a caramel apple pie heated up with whipped cream. I ate the whole thing.

We got home and all I wanted to do was go to bed, my tummy didn't feel well at all. I've been paranoid alot lately about developing heart disease i.e. a heart attack so that was running through my mind. I laid down for an hour and still didn't feel well, I drank 3 pop (coke zero) and went to bed 2 hours later. Then the true paranoia hit me, I felt sick, I felt like I was going to die, I felt like the whole world was over, if only I hadn't eaten all that fatty assed food.

Today I still feel weary and worried, which is why I'm a lot more careful today about what I chose to eat. I'm following the 12 step plan from Overeaters Anonymous and I'm on Step 4 and I seem to be taking an extra long time to complete this step. However, I should know better then to fear, I should hand my will over to God. I'm officially doing that right now. No more fear, no more doubt because my ways get me in trouble.

What have I eaten so far today, hmm a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios with 2% milk (it hurt my tummy). Then I had a chicken pot pie from Banquet (350 cals 25 gr fat and 2 gr of fiber) and for dinner hubby is making hot dogs and American Potatoes. I will watch my portions, I don't want to feel panicky and sick again. Even better I will ask God to remove the desire to eat huge portions.

Making a List! Reasons to be thin

I was discussing with the hubby yesterday how I wanted to create a list of reasons to be thin and then create a list of reasons to stay fat. He didn't quite get the point to why someone would choose to stay fat. My point was there really are no reasons unless you like total discomfort, aches and pains (my experience so far) oh and fearing for your life i.e. heart issues, diabetes and this list goes on. But being me I had to come up with a reason and the only reason I could come up with to stay obese was that I could eat whatever I wanted, which would consist of a diet of sugar but there's a catch to that which is discomfort, aches and pains oh and fearing for my life.

So here's my list as to why I want to be thin and healthy...
  • Better Health
  • Positive Self-Esteem
  • Can do my own pedicure
  • Better sleep
  • Can ride on the back of hubby's Harley with ease
  • Self Confidence
  • Nicer clothes
  • Better stamina to do everything
  • Climb the stairs without catching my breath
  • No more body aches i.e. knee pain, back pain
  • Fit into booths at restaurants
  • Fit in rides at amusement parks
  • Fit more comfortably in my car (seat belt wouldn't rise to my neck).
The list will continue as I come up with more reasons. There are plenty, probably hundreds.

Oh Boy The Before Pictures

Ok, to show that I'm really serious about this I have decided to post a current pics or shall I say Before pics of me (head cut off naturellement).

This pics were taken today by the hubby. We're looking for a tape measure so that I can take my measurements and keep an online account of these. I want to take a photo of myself once a month or every 10 pounds, I'm not sure how I'm going to do that.

I obviously need to exercise my arms (suggestions are welcome) my gut and oh well the rest of my body. Hopefully by using Leslie Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds I can tone up and not just burn calories.

You'll find the pics on the right hand side if you scroll down a bit. I chose a front/side/back view.

Thanks for coming by.

Who am I?

Well, I'm just a simple girl who wants to lose weight. I used to be nice and slim, but now I'm obese but even worse then obese I'm unhealthy. I sometimes literally fear for my life. I can hear my heart beat when I lay down at night through my ears but deep breathing seems to calm it down.

I need to exercise, I need to eat right and I need to work on my self esteem, it is at an all time low. If only my weight were as low as my self-esteem (bad joke).

This blog for me is a way to make myself accountable. I first wanted to continue with what worked with me in the past which was Weight Watchers but after some thought and inspiration what I'll do is simply count calories and incorporate exercise in my daily life. The inspiration came from a blog that I read she has fought a great battle with great results so far. She did it using Sparkpeople.com. I've heard so many wonderful things concerning Spark, I've seen the success stories in a Woman's World magazine (I'll try to find out which issue) and it's FREE!

I am looking to join some weight loss blog challenges to continue with the keeping me accountable theme and as time progresses I will post my weight, measurements, calories, exercise etc...

Thanks for visiting, please don't hesitate to comment or ask questions.
"This blog is so much more then writing about my weight loss journey it has become an extension in helping me know who I am and who I can be."
