What have I done??? Where did I go???

Thursday, January 05, 2012

emoticon The time has come - time to face the truth and realize what I have done. No time or reason to blame myself, it will only piss me off even more.

I have never been this heavy before and I can't believe what a different person I have became because of it. I am sluggish, grouchy and just not who I really am anymore. Sore and achey, I feel 80 quite often.

Thankful that I feel a change happening - dare I say it a 'spark' starting to happen. I don't want to live like a frumpy old fat lady that I have became. I want to be the crazy and insane--sometimes on the edge that I used to be...mainly I want to be healthy and happy!

Food isn't a bff - used it to comfort myself and use it pass time...just drugs for the body not any type of fuel. It must stop - I would never treat my animals or vehicle like this, why do I think it is ok to treat myself this way?

I can, I will and I finally want to make a change - a lot of changes....

Have many more thoughts, will post again.

Focusing on ME!

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Help, I am having trouble getting motivated, I make so many bad food choices and I think it is out of self defeat. Of late the world seems set on knocking me down and my fighting spirit has waned on me. What does it take to get it back!

How did others get themselves motivated, if my recent step on the scales didn't motivate me, I don't know what would. LOL

    I can relate to the self defeatism and the hard knocks life can suddenly throw at one. My motivation came after I spent two weeks of being brutally honest with myself about my life choices, ie: food, friends (so-called), family, financial, everything I've done over the past (cough)30(cough) years. That has become my motivation. To declutter my life through a healthier lifestyle and a healthier attitude. Don't say diet, just say Do Better!! Just remember, you were motivated enough to admit to needing help, you can get motivated more.

Time for a Journal....

Sunday, October 08, 2006

Probably one of my worst non-habits I have for weight loss is refusing to journal....why am I so stubborn about it......I love to keystroke my thoughts.....

I need to work harder to avoid the weekend eating habits that become unhealthy and to work better at avoiding emotional eating.

I am making wonderful progress and am positive that this time I will keep the weight off. I have done this yo-yo so many times before, I hit goal or near goal and then blew it...and gained all my hardwork back and often more. I have learned that the work will have to continue the rest of my life...even after I hit goal, I must keep working at maintaining that goal!!

I can and I will.......
