Week 1 Completed!

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Today was my official weigh in day. We weigh in on Wednesdays with the BLC. Week one back on track. A loss of 6 lbs. emoticon I stopped tracking 3 days ago & that was a mistake because the scale read 232lbs. three days ago. Today on weigh in day the scale read 234lbs. Up emoticon 2 lbs. When I don't weigh & measure my food I make errors. What you eat during the course of the day calorie wise can add up to a lot more than what you think your eating! emoticon That's ok. I won't make that mistake again. Losing 6 lbs. the 1st week being back on track was still a great motivational boost for me!
Week two- I am going to prepare for the start of BLC26. I am going to continue working on tracking & measuring my food. (with consistency) I am going to add working on my appearance. I will write more about that in my next blog.

    My weight bounces up and down, a lot. I think this might sometimes be due to water weight or slow digestive process, even after being "good". For example, I was expecting to see some kind of loss Monday because I'd stuck to my plan all weekend.

It really upset me to see that on Monday I was up a couple of pounds from what I'd weighed in at Sunday. Today I am down 1.4 pounds from Sunday. The extra weight vanished. (Thankfully)

I've been jotting down what I weigh every day, and I have noticed a pattern. There is often an increase just before I see a decrease, even when I stick with my diet and exercise. I am trying to learn to be patient with this… (I used to see the increase and just give up.)

I 100% agree. If I don't weigh and track food, the calories sneak in. I got off track for 5 months and gained 12 pounds! I'm back on track now and have promised myself not to eat anything without weighing and tracking.

Best to you!

I'm focused & I will reach my goal

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

I was going to title this , "nothing can stop me now" because that is the way I feel. I am so ready to move on. I realized something. I have been gaining & losing the same 30 lbs. for the last year. Every time I get close to Onederland I go off track. I haven't figured out why I do this? I did realize something that when looking at other SP weight trackers it seems those who make it to Onederland continue to lose weight till they reach their goal. Perhaps with a few setbacks during their journey. Those who don't reach Onederland continue as I do losing the same 10, 20 ,or 30 lbs. or even worse THEY GIVE UP & QUIT! I'm not a quitter. I know I could have been at my goal weight by now & working on maintenance but I'm not their yet. I refuse to get discouraged! To reiterate, I AM NOT A QUITTER! I REFUSE TO GIVE UP. I am going to keep pushing & keep my eyes focused on my goal!


I CAN DO IT! I WILL DO IT! SOMEDAY I WILL SAY, I DID IT!!!!!!!

Day 1 a success. Weigh Measure & Shake!

Wednesday, September 03, 2014

Today was my 1st day back & it ended in success! This week I plan to weigh & measure all my food as a small step to get back on track. I forgot how fast calories can add up during the coarse of a day. I couldn't even imagine how many calories I was consuming when I was off track. No wonder I gained so much weight back! emoticon emoticon emoticon I am not one for exercising so another baby step will be to dance for 15 minutes a day. I figured If I am going to make this work I have to do something I really like. Dancing burns calories & when no ones around I can shake my booty.

I'm Not A Quitter!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

It's been a few months since I wrote a blog. I've been off track & the weight is sky rocketing up emoticon. The last time I got on the scale it was up to 239 lbs. emoticon I am tired & ache all the time. I just barely squeeze into 16W pants. If I don't stop now I will gain all the weight back that took me so long to lose. I am not going to let all that hard work go down the drain. I simply refuse to let this happen! emoticon I can't say that I'm not frustrated & disappointed with myself . I am! But I'm not a quitter! I was reading something one of my spark buddies wrote about backsliding & quitting. She said I'd rather be a backslider than a quitter. At least I'm still here & trying. That is my sentiments exactly! In two weeks we will be starting our fall BLC26. I would love to leave Twoterville before the end of this year but that doesn't seem realistic now. That isn't going to deter me. I will try to get as close to Onederland as I possibly can. Tomorrow I will weigh in & no matter what the results I will start over & not look back. This next week I am going to take time out to set goals or should I say baby steps in the right direction.

    You are definitely not a quitter and that is such a great quality to have! I know you are strong and can get that scale moving back in the right direction. I've been fighting about a 10 pound regain, it's not easy but we can do it. emoticon

Getting back on track.

Monday, May 12, 2014

For your week end BLC challenge we were asked to post about our plan on how we would get back on track if we went off. I've fell off the wagon so many times during this weight loss journey I should be an expert by now. emoticonTheir is no special trick. Each weight loss journey is so unique & different. You must find what works best for you. For me personally I found out that if I weight myself each day it holds me accountable to myself. I know some of the experts say this is not a good thing to do but if you are totally aware of the fact that your bodies weight can fluctuate each day & not get discouraged I think weighing yourself daily can benefit you.
The second thing is staying in your calorie range. This meaning you got to count those calories or else! A little here & a little their = no weight loss! emoticon
The third thing which is just as important or maybe even more so is motivation. I give myself a pep talk & have a weight loss journal. Sometimes it just helps to write down were you are & were you are going! emoticon Reflection can be a great tool for weight loss! You don't have to write down something each day only when you feel motivated to do so. Every once in a while I read a success story on Spark people. Those stories are so inspirational & you learn so much on how to lose weight & keep it off. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    i think you can do it as well linda.i disagree about motivation being the most important love.i say persistance and consistancy are the most important and they can have nothing to do with motivation.like you clean your teeth each day even when you donīt always feel like it.same with washing,going to work etc,etc.just my own observation.if i waited till i have the motivation all the time i would never have got as far as i have.motivation helps donīt get me wrong but it is persistance and constitancy that will get you there in the end so in the words of nike.just do it

p.s.maybe i should listen to what i write.lol emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
