Look IN myself and not AT is HARD!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Not sure if I loved this article or hated it. I am VERY motivated to loose weight, I just don't have the willpower... is what goes through my head about 1 zillion times a day. (Yes, I "think" about loosing weight about 20 hours of my day.)

Maybe I am simply not even motivated, I am just "thinking" I am and the truth is I only "wish" I could loose weight... But, if that is my real truth if I look in my heart of hearts... do I REALLY want to loose the weight, or am I just saying I do as an excuse to let others who look at me as heavy that I am "trying", but the truth may be that I really don't care...

But then I think I do care, otherwise I would not think about it THIS MUCH, right?? ARGH! I do NOT like this article. It made me think.

    Not too many people feel good when they're overweight . I 'd say you DO want to lose weight if you think about it 20 hours a day , like me. You probably stare at other women who are pretty & wish you looked like them, or are resentful, or wonder how they do it.

I'd say you probably really like eating , like me. I've been doing this since Feb. & have lost 11 pounds . That is a loss, but I work out well. If it wasn't for my binges I could've easily been in the 180's by now, but I have to learn how to cope with life without using food to comfort me, please me , because in the end I CRINGE at my pictures & think about losing weight all the time , too.

I think it's great you blogged about it. Good luck on your journey emoticon

Funny Week!

Friday, June 28, 2013

Great week for calories and fitness! YAY! Here are a few (funny) things I learned while trying to get fit!!

The "Scale" should not be my view of success!


This is NOT a quick fix!!!


STOP! the excuses!


IT IS... a lifestyle... NOT a diet!


STOP the FAST FOOD madness!!!!


When you cheat... you only cheat yourself! Be honest about your weight loss!


My favorite!!!! NUF' SAID!!!


Have a great weekend!

100% not always a good thing

Sunday, June 23, 2013

WOW! When I go for something, sometimes I really go for it.

This week, worked out 4 times and did great. My husband got a different job and now picks me up at 5:15 and not 4:45. (I get out at 4:30) So, I have 45 minutes to use the gym at work. I got on that blasted elliptical and "power housed" it for 20, then did sit ups the rest of the time with some cool down and stretching. Gave it 100% each time!

I began to really feel good and thought I would sacrifice my wine at night. I did it, Woot, two nights in a row. Now for those of you in which this would be easy... Kudos. But for me I had anxiety. But then in the morning I felt great and did not think giving up my nightly wine would be as hard as I thought... AND HOPE! Wish me luck on this!

Stayed on track with food and water this week and even met with my Wellness Coach who gave me great tips all the way around. PS - She recommend I stick with Sparkpeople for tracking. (WOOT!) 100% in the eating this week.... UNTILLL!!!!

Last night I gave it 100% alright!! 100% of anything that was in front of me. YIKES!!! Bagels, cream cheese, crackers, cheese, cookies.... OMG! Nothing was sacred. It was horrible! The weird thing is while I was totally enjoying every minute and knew I should stop, I never had the feeling I used to get when I would binge. I used to feel like I hated everything and I dare someone to tell me I could not eat junk! Yesterday I just felt like the food was so delicious, like I had never had a bagel and cream cheese before.... which by the way I hadn't in MONTHSSSS!!! 100% BINGE... check! I can take that off my list for a very long time!! Ugh!

    sample but don't binge. You'll be great.

And a small glass of wine isn't a bad thing-- may even have some health benefits!

    Having one glass a wine 6oz is fine. So is a mini bagel with low fat cream cheese. You will do good.

    Well, you have demonstrated that, counterintuitively, mediocracy is not such a bad thing!

Here I come with marshmallows...

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Three weeks of weight loss... then on week four, nothing. My first thought was... "no worries, I will try again this week." And then I thought... NO!!! Lazy attitude! I did not track, I did not drink enough water, I did watch what I ate, but not good enough. I only got on the treadmill twice! Lazy!! Usually I get this attitude farther down the line. 2 months of thinking "...well, I'll try again next week, and next week and..." And then the weight comes back!

This time I caught it before I gained weight back and am correcting it NOW!!!

Three weeks of weight loss, then lazy. On the fifth week I am putting more wood on the smoldering fire... as opposed to starting a whole new fire that has been cooled down for two months. So, if I had to say I had ANY small victory this week this would be it.

Today, tracked breakfast, filled my water bottle, got my journal in hand and am starting the week off with a positive attitude. Here I come with marshmallows.... because MY FIRE IS LIT!!!
