Today I Promise

Monday, June 24, 2013

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

I feel so much better when I eat less junk and more real food. I still have junk occasionally, but it's a 90/10 split with healthy in the lead now. I also really like the feeling I get from working out. I like to see if i can push myself to do 5 more minutes or increase the speed. I don't want to fall back into my old ways, I don't every want to be 300 lbs again. I know at some point I will hit a plateau and/or I will stumble. But I also know that I can choose not to give up on myself.

    Snack foods make my whole body hurt. I feel so much better without them. Keep up the good work. Quite a weight loss so far.

    Yay! I feel the same way. I was telling my boyfriend a few days ago. I used to be that person that was like "omg ugh I hate exercise". I hated sweating. I hated being out of breath. I hated the achy muscles. Now... I'm addicted! I LOVE IT!

I love the sweat, the being out of breath, the achy muscles, because I know all of those things mean I am doing exactly what is necessary to be the person I want to be INSIDE and OUT!

Good for you!!! Keep it up! :)

I started on April 1st weighing 329.6, I got on the scale today and it said 301.1. I almost cried because I realized how much has changed in 44 days. When I decided to restart my journey I knew it wouldn't be easy, but it would be worth it. I made the decision to eat better and to exercise more. It's the same thing I say to myself every time i hit the restart button, but this time so far it's been different. With food I still make bad choices , but I don't use it as an excuse to blow the whole day. If I want chocolate I eat a piece of chocolate, but not a whole bag. I don't hate myself for having a cookie. I eat more fruits and veggies (actually I drink them), I drink more water than soda, and I eat less fast food. As far as exercise I did something I never thought I would do, I joined a gym. I was so nervous the first day I almost backed out. I have gone no less than 4 times a week since I've joined. My favorite thing right now is the hill setting on level 20. I also really enjoy putting my headphones on and just going for a walk. I feel proud of my progress and am determined to keep going!

    You might have said the same thing you always do - that things will be different - but you actually did something different... Looks like you're being kind to yourself, going slowly, trying for better instead of perfection, and you're finding the pleasure of making enjoyable choices (as you said, using the hill setting and taking a walk).

I would like to challenge one thing though. You said: "I still make bad choices" - try taking out the word 'bad'. You are making choices. Having an occasional indulgence and moderating the changes are not bad - it's actually good. Our bodies actually reject instantaneous changes in diet, which derails progress. Labeling food as 'bad' leads to negative feelings, whereas making a conscious choice to mindfully indulge in moderation gives you power and enhances positivity.

Best wishes on your journey. I wish you continued success!

Goals for this challenge!

Losing 20 lbs to improve my health and my self esteem is goal #1! I have a very bad habit of halfway commiting to my weight loss,so for goal #2 I will finish all of HLC!
When I finish this challenge I will reward myself by getting the 2 Wii fitness games :)

  


Fortune Cookie Blues

Friday, May 08, 2009

So today I celebrated my birthday with my family. In my head I was going to eat sensibly and only splurge on a piece of cake and ice cream. I chose to have Chinese with every intention of getting a small chicken and broccoli and no egg roll. Then the menu was passed and I heard what everyone else was getting and I lost my ever-loving mind!!! Small chicken and broccoli...ha try a large twice cooked pork,no egg roll...umm that turned into 1 egg roll and 2 crab rangoons. I followed all of that up with a piece of cake and ice cream!
I know that one bad day doesn't have to ruin the progress that I've made,but it still sucks to feel like I failed.

    Happy belated birthday! Ok, if you totally give up what you love, especially for celebrations, then you'll only want it even more! You can splurge once in a great while and if that means once a year for your birthday then I say go for it.. and if you have guilt about it the next day.. work that emotion out in sweat!! Then you'll be happy you had what you wanted and happy you made up for it.. two positives! Kinda a win-win situation! emoticon

    Hi Erint75,
It is your birthday so enjoy the day, then tomorrow back to business as usual.. You have to learn to forgive yourself and intergrate social and seasonal occassions into your lifestyle change.. If you get back down to work and work hard the other 2o meals in a week you may just do enough damage control to have a good week anyway..

    You did not fail. You acknowledged what you ate and you will do better tomorrow. I believe in you! It was your birthday, your celebration of life. Believe me when it's my birthday, I will have chinese food, (my favorite) and ice cream (my other favorite). You are working on you one day at a time. I believe in you! You can do this!

Happy Birthday!

Much love
Monique
