so excited

Thursday, October 25, 2012

they say it takes 12 weeks before people see that you have lost weight... will yesterday (8weeks in) I had 2 people come up to me and tell me I looked great. wow hard work pays off. the funny thing lately I haven't been feeling like I have been loosing. My pants still seem to fit about the same around my middle. So I was really encouraged by them. My daughter comes home from college in a few weeks and we will measure each other then. I'm a little nervous. I hope the inches go down. I also have stepped up my exercise a little since I didn't do well last week and I want to lose 5 pounds by Thanksgiving.

woo hoo moment

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

yesterday was just one of those days woke up thinking it was Friday and then the weekend. There were cookies at work and I had a very stressful night at home dealing with some family issues. I am here today to say I had a great day. work went well for a monday and the cookies stayed on the plate and as for emotional eating... it didn't happen. Plus had a great walk with my daughter. I know not everyday will turn out that good but yesterday it did so praise God. He carried me through yet another day.

Today I stepped on the scales and I gained 1 pound. I shouldn't be surprised I didn't do well this week although yesterday was better i exercised and ate ok. am trying not to stress over it. I think the reason I am stress is because I want to be under 200 when My daughters come home for Thanksgiving and I just might not be there. I know they don't care if I am or not it was just a goal of mine and I dont want to be disappointed

    Just checking in to see how yesterday went--glad to see it went okay! Gosh, that pound could be just about anything: not enough water, too much salt, out of control eating during the week, etc. What I'm trying to say is, hang in there. Recover from the week and start fresh, learn where the triggers are and go from there. You have an great goal in mind for your girls! emoticon emoticon

a new day

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Yesterday was a really bad day.. I ate everything in site and didn't even exercise. I was not depressed or stressed I just didn't want to do it. so I didn't. not good. But at the end of the day I was ready for the new day ready to get back on track. I guess I just needed a day off? So today will be full of movement and joy. I can do it.

evaluating my goals

Thursday, October 18, 2012

This morning as I was doing my sparkpeople stuff my son (15) ask me to help him pack for his football game that was right after school. I told him I couldn't. You see I also have to be at work soon and I have this list of things that needed to be tracked and checked and logged in. He did it himself. This was not the first time I brushed him off of my goals. Right then and there I realized I had my goals all wrong. My God and My family must come first! You know I want to get healthy and lose weight for my family but if I have pushed them all away because I need to reach my goals then I will have no family to enjoy when I reach my goals. To me this is a break through and starting today my goals are going to get back in order.

    I just came back to add exactly what you said, Celeste. Women far too often put others' needs ahead of their own. We have to take care of ourselves first or how can we take care of others?

    You need to come first...because if you don't come first and you put everyone else before yourself, especially your goals for a healthier you, it negatively effects how you are there for your children.

All things must have a balance...but you need to do what you need to in order to be a healthier you....

    You can also think of it as helping him to become self sufficient and learning how to stand on his own two feet. He is 15 and I'm sure he knows what he needs to pack for his game. There is nothing wrong with him pitching in and packing himself. emoticon

    Oh boy, it's hard to find that you've pushed off the people you love for something else. I know because I've done it, too. I've learned to let some things go and shuffle others. I've found that if I make a smidge of time for myself, like for a workout or tracking, then I'm more focused for family. You have to figure out what's right for you and it sounds like you're doing just that! Good luck..here to support if needed!

    emoticon I agree that family does come first but they can get lost in all the things we "have to do". Great job on re-evaluating. Good Luck on your weight loss too. emoticon
