Up Front And Honest With Myself

Tuesday, March 25, 2008


Well this is who and where I was in 2005 before I started eDiets. It did wonders for me and their advise and the support boards really helped me focus on losing just shy of 50 pounds and being at 125!

Now I sit today at my official restart of 130.8 pounds and so motivated with SPARKPEOPLE! I know it's ONLY 5.8 pounds. But after watching every pound go it's horrible to see the 5.8 back. Plus I have not been doing my strength training for almost a full year, I was just kidding myself I think.

I think I sort of went into panic mode, which lead to depression I think and lack of self confidence.

WELL I GOT IT BACK, OR AT LEAST I AM GOING TO TRICK MYSELF INTO THINKING I GOT IT BACK.

I had no idea how I let myself get up to 174 pounds. I was so disgusted with myself. It doesn't happened overnight it's one bad choice after another bad choice. Well it's time for one good choice and another good choice AGAIN! I know there will be some bad choices but it's time for the good to outweigh the bad and get back on track.

I know, I'm just talking in circles but I guess I have learned from my weight loss that the only thing that REALLY works for me is JUST DOING IT!!! Just getting up from off the bed and moving because once I start moving I don't want to stop so I just have to do it and the rest will fall into place. Same with my food, if I log it and MAKE MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE I eat well, if I don't I eat poorly.

Lastly I need to forget about the 3 B's which are my triggers....bills, boys and bratty teens and just focus on me and all the rest seems to fall into place when I do that.
I know how I operate, I have to look myself in the mirror everyday. So being accountable, focusing on me, and just doing it are my keys to success.

Onward to goal!

    Ang, this is going to sound really LAME but "I'm here for you, sister!"

    I think in a lot of ways, losing just 5 ot 10 pounds is harder than losing 40 or 50, because at the beginning every tiny lifestyle change makes a huge difference! What do you do when you're already doing it right and still the scale won't move?

    Getting back into your weight training routine will certainly help. It'll help mentally and it'll help physically. Go for those SuperFoods. Drink that water.

    Today I am whistling and glancing sidelong at the scale, pretending that I haven't noticed that it's down a half pound, even with TTOM looming. Little Victories.....

    Hey, those are my words too "Just DO IT"! I love it! Its the only way to get it done! ;)

    I prepared a menu on Sunday, same thing just about every-other-day this week, so I entered Monday and Tuesday to see how the calories, ratios, etc was going to pan out. Trying to bust out of my rut of eating the exact same thing every day (+ that little 'extra' I though in for good measure - NO-NO!) This is why I had to change it all. So far its working.

    And it'll work for you too.... Girl - you have got to start strength training again. i just loved that picture of you in your home gym from Sept 06! it was MY inspiration way back when I started eDiets, you look amazing in that picture!
