So I did the thing I had been dreading for a while now. I weighed myself.

I'm devastated and so frustrated with myself.

I am 3.4 pounds away from being back at my original weight.

How could I let this happen? It is enough to really depress me.

I go to the doctor's this coming Friday and she's going to be so disappointed, I know.

Dreading going to there now. But I have to if I want my bc. Ugh.

    I've had nothing but days off recently. I need to stop putting it off and get back into it.

    I know the feeling and recently went through it as well. This weight loss thing is not always easy or straight forward, sometimes you have to take a few steps back. Don't beat yourself up, just take a few days off, figure out how to start again and then start again!! emoticon emoticon

    So many of us have been there. Be kind to yourself and know that you're not alone in your struggles.

A new start

Friday, June 21, 2013

So, tomorrow is my new start. Why tomorrow and not today you may ask? Cause it's 11:30 pm and I'm worn out. Haha. Kind of a little later tonight to start.

I was browsing Youtube last night and ran across some weight loss videos. People had lost so much weight. And I was sitting here, feeling miserable because I've gained most of my weight back. I'm off from work for the summer...and I've been telling myself that "Oh, I'll start back up tomorrow." and "I can do that Monday." and those days come and it never happens.

I was part of a BLC team on here when my summer break came along (still am....but not active) and I thought that would motivate me to get myself moving. It didn't, however. In fact, it demotivated me. I didn't participate in the challenges and I absolutely despise weighing in every week. I've never done well with that. So I PMed one of the people that runs it and let them know that I was backing out of the challenge.

I need to really rework a lot of my thinking again. I need to work on not snacking between meals. I need to work on actually getting off my butt and exercising. So what if I've done that workout before? I'll do it again!

I need to stop making excuses for myself. They do nothing but bring me down!

So I figured I'd should make some goals for myself. Some things to help keep me motivated and coming back to this site.

--Get at least 100 spark points a day.
--Read at least 1 article a day on here.
--Drink 4 bottles of water a day and track it.
--Go to bed by midnight each night until work starts back up...then it will be 9:30.
--Take a walk at least three times a week.
--Exercise every day for at least 20-30 minutes.
--Weigh in every other week.
--Take other measurements once a month.

I will eventually put this into my actual profile and add on to it later as I continue on in my new beginnings.

    The little things really add up and it's the little things that get us when we aren't trying as hard as we know we have to. I know, I'm STUCK...I've increased my exercise ten-fold but my weight isn't going down at all. It's because I haven't been TRACKING everything...I NEED to do that, I know I need to, but I've been lazy.

    Good for you! Take each day as it comes, don't fret! Whatever videos you were watching...didn't happen overnight! It happened with consistent daily activity and healthy choices over a long period of time!!! We will do it!

WUB - week 4

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Current Weight: 264
Gained or Lost: Gained
How much: +4

So frustrating. I take one step forward and then two steps back. I exercised this week. Granted I skipped three days. I've not felt good all weekend. Maybe it's all water weight. I'm still disappointed in myself.

This is why I hate weighing in every week. I love being part of the BLC teams but I just really hate having to weigh in once a week. Ugh.

I've not much else to say about this. I'm just too frustrated.

WUB - week 3

Monday, May 06, 2013

Current Weight: 260
Gained or Lost: Lost
How much: -2

Oops, I was going to do this last night after I weighed in but I completely forgot! Better late than never though.

I can't believe it. I've lost 2 pounds. Woo, go me! Hehe. It's amazing what 30 minutes of exercise a day can do. I've done so good with that too. 7 days in a row! I plan on keeping it up too. I want to get a streak of 30 days in a row.

I usually exercise in the mornings on the weekdays but when I woke up this morning I felt like crap. So I set my alarm for an hour later and decided I'd just exercise after work. Hopefully that choice doesn't bite me in the butt later and I mess up my streak. Cross your fingers guys!

My calorie intake hasn't been the best this week but it hasn't been the worst either. I was only under my highest amount allowed twice last week. However, it was never more than a couple hundred over. So much better than it has been lately. I plan on working on that in the couple of weeks. Hopefully I can slowly get myself to eat better. Been eating a lot of fruits and veggies at work.

My inspiration journal

Sunday, April 28, 2013

So we had a challenge to make a visual inspiration. I decided to do a weight loss inspiration journal irl. I don't have any pictures of it at the moment as it's still a work in progress.

If anyone has any ideas for it, let me know!

    That's an awesome idea! I'd love to see pics of it :-)

As for ideas, you could make it a combination of a personal journey scrapbook and an inspiration other words, have things that inspire you mixed in with pictures and stats of your own progress! Then it's something you can continue to add to as you find new quotes and pictures that inspire you, as well as as you continue to make progress on your journey.
