Sindy's Blog - October 16, 2003

October 16, 2003

Had to go to my dad's this weekend. How weird! I've been trying to prepare myself for this visit to his new apartment and I really didn't think it would be that big of a deal. But it was. I'm hoping it will get easier but I am really dreading having to go back there!

Mom dropped Amy and me off at Dad's on Friday night. It was okay - we watched some TV, ordered in pizza and Amy told Dad all about what she is doing in school right now. Dad had set up a couple of beds in his spare room for us and said we could go shopping in the morning to get some things to jazz the place up. We thought that could be fun, so agreed and headed to bed.

It wasn't that it was totally painful, it just was a little uncomfortable. Dad was just trying too hard to get us to be happy. He kept suggesting things and throwing stuff in the cart that neither of us wanted. It was getting a little out of control so I told him to calm down. This did not go over well. He just let go of the cart and walked away. We followed him out to the car and we never did get anything to go in our room.

Later he apologized and said he was just trying to make this easier on us. I know he doesn't want this to be awkward, but it is. There's nothing he can do about it. I'm sure we will all settle into our new routine eventually, but for now I think we will hold off on the massive re-decoration of the room at my dad's place. We'll just gradually bring some stuff over and soon enough it will feel more like home.

I think I smell freshly-baked, chocolate chip cookies. Wonder what's up with that? Mom doesn't usually bake. Better go test 'em out and then brainstorm on my Halloween costume. Still not sure what I want to be?

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
