weight loss wager

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Thinking of doing a weight loss wager with family friends or coworkers to see if it gets me back on track . This back and forth is really frustrating especially when you feel the clothes getting tighter so you know weight is being put on. then you weigh in and your frustration is confirmed WEIGHT GAIN.. but eventually it will come together. I feel like I need someone to push me a buddy that is a 100 percent in it to win it.

Have to do this

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

It seems like a constant rewind button that I continue pushing in my own life. The scene where I continue to say I will lose weight and start off great at the beginning then fall off track. And here I am again. Wanting to start again. Bigger again .. at 225 again. It really a number that makes me unhappy. I hate how my clothes fit once again. Dont want to wear shorts or tanks because they just look blah. I am done with the excuses this is my time to do something about it. before school starts again.

    Stick with Spark People, I it helps me stay positive. I was 220lbs in January and I bounce between 205 and 195 currently, Its a struggle for sure, but SP has so many people that give me new ideas to keep things interesting and hopeful.

    I know how you feel. This certainly isn't my first try to lose weight. But SP is a great place to help us reach our goals, so here's to hoping that this time it will stick. emoticon

Ticker

Friday, May 16, 2014

I have decided to make short goals on my ticker that way I can see whats in reach. I feel this will help me work harder and smarter to reach small goal before I hit my main goal which is to reach 150. Getting under the 200 mark is the big one that I always battle with. So that is my first goal getting under 200. Right now my mind is set on doing this and no more excuses. I am hoping to have the first 15 off by May and at least 20 pounds off by July for my birthday. I am juicing and eating my fruits and veggies. and having that will power that I did have. I am going to do this and I know I am going to be the me I AM and want to be. I know everyone accepts me for who I am. But I need to love me and make time for me.. So here is my journey and lets see how it unfold.

    YAY! This is a great blog! I'm so happy to see that you are starting back up strong! Sometimes seeing those big end goals can be disheartening so it's always good to have the small mini goals. I think that you are at a great place and are doing fantastic. Keep up the amazing work and you'll be at your first mini goal in no time!

    You can do it!
I agree having just ONE-BIG-GOAL when far away and hard to conjure can be daunting. I think its good to have other goals besides just the number on the scale.
Lately i have been using a pedometer to hit a certain number of steps per day. The goal of the steps is a good one for an immediate feeling of completion and the reward is just knowing I did something toward the greater goal. Sometimes the scale can be too frustrating.

Starting again

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

It sucks because I feel like I have continued to start again and again. Back at 215. This yoyoing is already enough. I have to stick to this. I know that much for sure. I feel like now that the school year is coming to an end I can start again. last summer was awesome because I had so much time. Right now I am trying to schedule a routine so that way when the school year begins again I can stick to it.

So much has happened this past few months that have left me very sad and just hurt. And its so easy to do the things that help you feel comfort like in food or celebrating over food. Going out to eat cause your just not in the mood to cook. But now thats all said and done and things are getting back to normal. I am done with the excuses. ITs time to make time for me and get this done. I am always very strong willed except when it comes to my weight. And it is very bothersome.

The weight makes me unhappy sometimes then just get over it. Truth is I have to make the changes I know that. Cause no one else is going to do it for me. I know having four boys and the temptation in front of me a lot I have to learn to have that self control. Which I know right now I do not have. I am working on it. This determined woman will get it. Just need that determination to stick and motivation also.

  I feel you! I also start over all the time. In my head I know what I need to do and then I lose my motivation,commitment and confidence. I know we can both do this. Good luck!

    hey girlie you're not alone! It has been rough lately. We do have our plates full as working moms but we have to stop with the excuses and just start sweating and getting healthy & strong. I know you can do this. We can do this. Keep pushing! My hubby added me to his 24 Hour Fitness package so today I'm going for the first time. I'm scared and nervous but I have to start some where! You're here again and thats what matters. You'll be loving the way you look and feel real sooN!

    I think we are almost the same person! haha. I have been starting over every week for the last 6 months it feels like and you're right it's time to just stop with the excuses and the temptations and realize what we need to do and do it! I have faith that you will turn this around and this will be your new start! Keep at it..you coming back to spark shows that you want this just as much as before! You got this girl!

4:30 a.m workouts

Thursday, January 16, 2014

so since Monday I have been getting up at 4: 30 a.m. and doing the 30 day shred. I thought I was going to be super tired by the end of the day but the complete opposite. I have been more alert through my day and able to sleep much better. I mean I know it is only day 3 but I feel that it is working great for me. Adding a dollar into a savings each time I work out to save for something I really want. I need to make list but that will come.

I have realized that I need an accountability buddy though. so searching see what comes up. For new years resolution is to BELIEVE. Believe in myself to do whatever I want to accomplish. Most of the time I lose motivation just because I don't believe enough. But I know I can and will do it. I can no longer be my biggest critic. I have to learn to accept things and take things day by day.

I have lost weight here and there and then gained it back. So to fat: time for a divorce because a separation just isn't going to do it for me this time. :-) got the drive and going to keep moving straight.

Just registered for 39 mile avon walk :-) so going to get this!!!
